Arsenal Target €60m Striker As Tammy alternative, Man City Agree Personal Terms With Kane
Arsenal Target €60m Striker As Abraham alternative
According to [Di Marzio – in Italian], Arsenal and Atletico are both willing to make offers for Vlahovic, while Spurs will only act on their interest if Harry Kane leaves.
As Tammy Abraham’s Chelsea future remains up in the air, Arsenal have turned their attention to Dusan Vlahovic. The Fiorentina striker could be available for a transfer at around €60 million.
Vlahovic, who scored 21 goals in Serie A last season, also interests Atletico Madrid and Tottenham.
Man City Agree Personal Terms With Harry Kane
Talking on the Reach PLC’s Transfer Window Podcast (h/t Express), transfer guru Ian McGarry has revealed that Manchester City have agreed personal terms with Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.
The English skipper is one of the best number nines globally and is currently in the prime of his career. He would be an excellent addition to a City side that recently parted ways with club legend Sergio Aguero. Pep Guardiola’s side could not ask for a better goalscorer to replace the Argentine than Kane.
Despite scoring bucketloads of goals, Kane has been unable to drag Tottenham to silverware. At 28, he is not getting any younger, and it is debatable if Nuno Espirito Santo can help him achieve what he wants in North London. Rumours of an exit reached crescendo levels when it was revealed last week that the player has not reported back to training.
Newcastle closing in on Willock deal
According to The Athletic, Newcastle United are on the verge of signing Joe Willock in a deal that could net Arsenal more than £20 million.
The Magpies made the England under-21 international their number one target after he impressed on loan in the second half of the season and they’ve finally come up with an offer deemed too good to turn down.
Willock was absent from Arsenal’s squad for today’s 1-0 defeat to Spurs at White Hart Lane and Mikel Arteta subsequently set tongues wagging when he said he wasn’t yet able to shed light on why that was the case.
During a summer when we’ve struggled to offload players (and already spent more than £70 million) it’s a deal that Arsenal fans will be grudgingly agree makes sense. Having had a taste of regular football at St James Park, Willock was never going to settle for long spells on the bench at the Emirates this season.
While it’s always sad to see an academy graduate leave for pastures new, it’s decent money that hopefully we can reinvest.
