Isco available for free
Isco, a Real Madrid midfielder who was a transfer target for Arsenal, is poised to leave the Santiago Bernabeu when his contract expires in the coming weeks. Los Blancos manager Carlo Ancelotti has stated that the 30-year-old’s contract will not be renewed, making him a free transfer target this summer.
“Isco’s career with Real Madrid comes to an end today – it’s been a fantastic career,” Fabrizio Romano said.
The Spanish playmaker has been linked with a move to the Emirates on several occasions in the past, with rumors first surfacing in 2015, and there was also speculation in the previous summer window that the Gunners were still interested.
Osimhen bid rejected
According to Calciomercato, Arsenal have made a €90 million (£76 million) approach for Napoli striker and Spurs target Victor Osimhen. This season, the 23-year-old has appeared 26 times for the Italian giants in Serie A, assisting 19 goals.
His outstanding performances for Luciano Spalletti’s team have guided Napoli to Champions League qualification, despite the fact that they are five points behind a title push. Many big European teams are reportedly interested in signing Osimhen, who has been pivotal to the Naples-based side’s recent success. Arsenal and Tottenham appear to be in the running, with Mikel Arteta’s team taking the lead.
Despite the Gunners’ desire to complete a deal as soon as possible, Calciomercato claims that Edu’s offer has been rejected. According to reports, Aurelio De Laurentiis, Napoli’s transfer chief, rates the Nigeria international at roughly £93 million.
Arsenal have concerns regarding Saka’s future
Arsenal is under pressure to incorporate a release clause in Bukayo Saka’s next contract, with negotiations scheduled to begin after the season. His impressive performances have helped Arsenal get within striking distance of Champions League qualification, attracting interest from a number of European top-flight clubs.
Saka has courted the curiosity of Juventus and Atletico Madrid, according to Italian newspaper Calciomercato, whose current contract at the Emirates Stadium expires in over two years. Arsenal would not sell the England international for less than £43 million, according to the report at the time.
According to CIES Football Observatory, his market value has risen to roughly £101 million after an impressive campaign in North London.
