TOP STORY: Inter and Barcelona to battle for Aubameyang?
Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was handed the captaincy earlier this season after Granit Xhaka was stripped of the armband, but that might not stop him from leaving the club in the coming months, with Inter Milan joining Barcelona in the hunt for his signature, according to the Daily Mirror.
Aubameyang, 30, will have just one year left on his contract next summer, but the club’s recent crisis of confidence has him unsettled and looking at his options.
The Gabon international has been one of the stars of the Premier League since his £56 million arrival two years ago, but the Telegraph reports that he has refused to sign a new deal and his contract could be sold.
Arsenal will cut their losses and use the cash to help fund Mikel Arteta’s list of transfer targets, which is reported to include Atletico Madrid forward Thomas Lemar, RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano and Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.
Chelsea and City chase Chilwell
Chilwell, 23, has made himself England’s first-choice left-back with a string of fine performances over the past year, and that hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Leicester have no desire to sell, but with two giants on the trail, bids of £60m-£70m could persuade the club to part ways with the defender.
Arsenal to go back for Kamara?
Arsenal should know all about Glen Kamara as they had him on their books until 2017 when he was released, but the Daily Mail says the club have sent scouts to watch him six times so far this season.
The Gunners have realised their mistake and are willing to make amends by bringing the Finland international midfielder back to the Emirates from Rangers, even though he signed for them only in January 2019 for £50,000 from Dundee.
Kamara, 24, has impressed under Steven Gerrard since arriving, but you have to wonder if he’d be keen to return to Arsenal after the way he was treated.
Stewart Robson explains Christian Eriksen’s decline at Tottenham and says he could be on the move come January.
Tottenham will have to spend £45m for Aarons
Aarons, 19, has had a fine start to the season despite Norwich’s relegation battle and would cost around £45m if his contract were to be sold in January.
Tottenham are in need of a right-back, as Kyle Walker-Peters is set to leave on loan, meaning Serge Aurier would be the only senior player in that position.
– Liverpool are hoping to beat Real Madrid to Sevilla defender Diego Carlos, according to El Desmarque. The Brazilian defender has a buyout clause of £65m in his contract, with the Reds keen to pair him with Virgil van Dijk at the end of the season.
– Manchester United might be fresh out of luck when it comes to signing players represented by agent Mino Raiola.
Raiola is unhappy with the treatment of his client Paul Pogba and told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: “Pogba’s problem is Manchester United. It’s a club out of touch with reality and without a sporting project. I wouldn’t bring anyone there now.”
He added: “They’d also ruin [Diego] Maradona, Pele and [Paolo] Maldini. Paul needs a team and club like the Juventus team he played in.”
