Layvin Kurzawa pursuit

Arsenal are keen on signing Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa, who will be available on a free transfer in the summer, but will face competition from across Europe.

Kurzawa’s contract with the Ligue 1 champions will expire at the end of the season and with his starts limited by Juan Bernat, the France international is keen to move on for regular minutes elsewhere.

Spanish outlet Sport claim that Kurzawa is also a target for Liverpool, Inter Milan, Napoli and even Barcelona.

And per their report, Barca may hold an advantage over the Gunners and the rest of the competition because the defender is represented by a company with whom Barca have regularly worked with of late and are said to have a good relationship with.

Gabriel Martinelli claim

Arsenal will consider huge bids for Gabriel Martinelli this summer – despite the teenage striker having established himself as one of Europe’s most exciting youngsters.

Despite only coming to Europe last summer as an 18-year-old, Martinelli has produced 10 goals and four assists in 26 appearances, only 15 of which have been starts.

That has seen the Brazilian already repay the £6million fee that the Gunners paid Ituano to bring him to the Premier League.

Such an excellent start to his Arsenal career, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp calling Martinelli “the talent of the century”, has reportedly piqued the attention of Real Madrid.

But despite that, 90min report that Arsenal could be tempted by big offers for Martinelli in the summer.

Alexis Sanchez loyalty bonus

Harry Kane situation

Tottenham are confident of keeping talisman Harry Kane, the Daily Mail report.

The England international is growing restless in north London and has recently made noises that he’s prepared to look elsewhere to challenge for major honours.

Manchester City view Kane, 26, as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, while Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward would reportedly ‘relish’ the opportunity to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, Spurs think they are in a strong position for two reasons.

The first is that Kane has four years left to run on his current deal and the second is the player’s £200million valuation, that could prove too steep given the financial impact the Coronavirus crisis.

Wanted: Dries Mertens

Work underway…

Arsenal are currently “working on” signing a new centre-back according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Mikel Arteta is known to want to strengthen the centre of his defence despite having multiple options in the position already.

The Gunners have seven centre-backs on their books in David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Konstantinos Mavropanos and the on-loan Pablo Mari.

William Saliba will also join Arteta’s squad for next season after a year on loan at Saint-Etienne, where Arsenal bought him from for £27million last summer.

Yet Mustafi, Sokratis and Mavropanos could all be sold to free up both funds and room for new additions, with it expected Saliba will play a key role next term.
