We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Xhaka stays, Arsenal still need reinforcements
Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta has announced that Granit Xhaka will not be leaving the club this summer and in actual fact, the Swiss midfielder will sign a new contract to remain at the Emirates but that doesn’t end Arsenal’s pursuit for another midfielder.
Arsenal’s loss to Chelsea opened up fresh needs for the Gunners to reinforce in the middle, there’s so much promises from Emile Smith-Rowe and Sambi Lokonga but without a recognized creative outlet, Arsenal might struggle again in the new season, Thomas Partey limped off injured too, any takers?
Harry Kane has failed to report to Spurs…
The biggest news in British tabloids today is the fact that Harry Kane has refused to return to Tottenham Hotspurs after his summer holiday and most can simply like his refusal to return to his decision to leave the North London club this summer.
Top journalists are reporting that Kane already had a gentleman agreement with Spurs last summer to leave at about this time and he’s waiting for the club to respect the agreement, Daniel Levy is not a very interesting person to negotiate with, will this end well?
United turn to Leon Goretzka, Saul
Everyone knows about Manchester United’s long standing interests in Nigeria’s midfielder at Leicester City Wilfred Ndidi but if that drags on, the Manchester club will turn to Bayern Munich German midfielder Leon Goretzka and the floating Saul Niguez of Atletico Madrid.
Saul was expected to join Barcelona in a swap deal with Antoine Griezzman but the deal fell through and United can pounce, close sources report that the club is also monitoring Rennes’ Camavinga as an alternative.
Spurs closer to Romero, add Traore to wish list
We knew at some points that Nuno Espirito Santo will look to sign players from his old club Wolves and he has signaled interests in speed demon Adama Traore who could be available at the right price.
Tottenham Hotspur tabled a £47m bid for Atalanta defender Christian Romero but as they wait for response from the Italian side, they’re growing increasingly confident that they will land their man and have now added Traore to the list of players they want to see around next season.
Wolves target ex Arsenal man Ramsey
Interesting news coming out of the Molineaux says Wolves are targeting former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in a deal that will shock the whole of the premier league.
Ramsey left Arsenal in the summer of 2018 after an illustrious career at the Emirates, winning three FA Cups but ran down his contract and joined Juventus for free.
Wolves are considering a loan deal for Ramsey, he will bring a wealth of experience to the West Midlands club, he featured for Wales at the recently concluded European championships.
