GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS
The Gunners have been told they’ll have to pay £42million for Martin Odegaard by Real Madrid, according to journalist Lucas Navarrete.
The 22-year-olds agent has reportedly told Real Madrid bosses he is unsure of his future at the Bernabeu, with Arsenal keen to pounce on their number one target.
And Tammy Abraham is said to have agreed personal terms with the Gunners, despite a £34million fee being agreed with Roma.
The 23-year-old is said to be unsure about moving to Italy though and would rather a switch to his boyhood club, but Chelsea aren’t keen on selling Abraham to a Premier League rival.
Denis Zakaria is rumoured to be at the centre of a transfer tussle between Arsenal and Tottenham, with reports in Germany claiming the club – who finished eighth in the Bundesliga – may be willing to listen to offers of around £17m.
It’s a cut-price deal with the 6ft 2in defensive midfielder – who can also play in midfield – thought to be valued around the £43million mark in March 2020.
And finally Arsenal and Manchester United’s pursuit of Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso has been given a huge boost.
The Bundesliga giants had initially wanted £17million for the star, according to Metro, but with only one year left on his contract with Bayern they’re eager to cash in on him before his deal ends..
After receiving no concrete offers for the Frenchman, they’ve slashed that price significantly to just £8.5m, Bild have reported.
And Manchester United have ended their interest in Kieran Trippier, according to reports.
The Red Devils were linked with a £30million switch for the Atletico Madrid star throughout the summer as they looked to bolster their defence but their interest has cooled according to the Mirror.
That could be Arsenal’s signal to make a move for the 30-year-old England international.
