Arsenal are also exploring the possibility of a deal to sign Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, who was subject of interest from the Gunners back in January. The Brazil-born defender, 20, has made 19 starts in Ligue 1 and a further six in the Champions League – meaning he has already played more this season than in the past two. Le10 Sport claim that Arsenal and Everton both made concrete offers for the Brazil Under-20 international, but they did not meet Lille’s valuation. The French club have since tied him down to a new contract until 2023, but it is suggested they may concede defeat in their efforts to keep him if an acceptable offer comes in the summer – with the Gunners ready to meet the apparent €35m (£29.6m) price on his head. Read Also:Arteta set to offload Lacazette, Aubameyang, Ozil in major shake-up Arteta is reported to be extremely keen on signing the pair for Arsenal this summer and wants them brought into his set-up as he looks to re-build his struggling Arsenal side into future top-four contenders. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Arsenal are working on deals to bring a pair of talented youngsters to Emirates Stadium this summer as Mikel Arteta and Edu look to go down the route of signing upcoming talent rather than established stars. With the Gunners currently down in 10th place after just six Premier League wins all season, the club look unlikely to qualify for Europe next season unless they can enjoy a surge in form late in the season and/or taste success in the Europa League. As such, the club are reportedly planning wholesale changes to their playing staff this summer and a quartet of big-name stars were last week tipped to be cast aside as Arteta plans sweeping changes. It’s claimed that Arteta is aware that he needs to offload their highest earners in order to re-invest in his squad and plans to buy upcoming talents, as opposed established names, in order to rejuvenate their flagging fortunes. And with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Reis Nelson providing hope for the future, Arsenal will also be boosted by the arrival of teenage defender William Saliba from St Etienne. And it’s no surprise to see Arsenal looking to the French market again with the club reported to be tracking talented Le Havre midfielder Pape Gueye. The 21-year-old is reported to be valued at around €20million (£16.9m) by the Ligue 2 outfit and has drawn favourable comparisons to both N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba for his all-action displays in the centre of the park.last_img read more

Arsenal couriered dozens of fitness bikes out to their players last Sunday to ensure the first team squad stays fit while at home during the coronavirus crisis. Sunderland may have scored an own goal on teenage left back Williams Kokolo. The Black Cats told the 19-year-old Frenchman in January they would not be renewing his deal but did not expect such big interest in him with Bayern Munich, West Ham, St Gallen, Fulham and Napoli all keen to take him on trial. Middlesbrough have now signed Kokolo and he is already training with them but will not be able to play for Boro’s first team until the summer. The coronavirus has delivered some brilliant stories about football coming together from Chelsea, to Crystal Palace and Manchester United offering to help NHS staff and match day staff who might not get paid.

United legend Cantona is one of the most influential figures in the club’s glorious history and the idea of bringing him back in an ambassadorial role is being discussed at Old Trafford. They already have greats like Bryan Robson and Denis Irwin as ambassadors as United enjoy celebrating their wonderful past and they have been involved on roadshows as well as personal appearances. Cantona, 53, remains a legendary and incredibly popular figure among the fans and would also bring star-studded appeal. United, of course, already have a club legend as their manager in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sir Alex Ferguson attends all the home games and is often seen at the training ground. Cantona is often credited as being Ferguson’s greatest ever signing as the Frenchman helped push United to their first Premier League title and spark a glorious new era for the club. His return even in an ambassadorial role would be a huge lift for the club and a major vote winner for the current club hierarchy as they stay in touch with the glorious past. Manchester United legend Ferdinand and new wife Kate Wright married last year but had to put their honeymoon on hold back then because of his TV commitments.last_img read more
