    Asensio monitored

    Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Marco Asensio's contract situation at Real Madrid, according to reports.

    The Gunners are one of several clubs who have been alerted to the midfielder – whose contract expires in 12 months.

    Los Blancos have offered him a contract extension, however he has so far refused to sign a new deal.

    There is a belief at the Bernabeu that he could exit for free, so would want to cash in instead.

    Arsenal lose out on wonderkid

    The Gunners have missed out on a top South American talent, if reports are to be believed.

    Paraguayan wonderkid Julio Enciso is now flying to England to sign for a Premier League club, just months after Arsenal scouts were watching him.

    However, it appears the forward is heading for Brighton in an £8million deal, say Sky Sports.

    The 18-year-old scored 11 goals in 17 games for his club Libertad last season.

    Darren Bent has backed Gabriel Jesus to thrive at Arsenal, if he signs for the Gunners.

    "I’d like to see him (Jesus) go to Arsenal. I think he’d be brilliant," the talkSPORT host said.

    “He’s not got a point to prove but I think he needs regular football and I think he’s more than good enough to score the goals to help Arsenal get back to where they’d like to get to. So I think that would be a really good addition to the squad.”

    Depay for sale

    Barcelona want to sell Arsenal target Memphis Depay, according to a report.

    Nottingham Forest are considering a swoop for Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

    The Mirror states that newly-promoted Nottingham Forest are plotting a swoop.

    This fresh report states that they have already contacted Arsenal with regards to a possible transfer.

    Maitland-Niles only has 12 months remaining on his Gunners contract and, after being deemed surplus to requirements by Mikel Arteta, they will likely be keen to cash in rather than lose him for nothing next year.

    Suspect arrested for Willian threats

    Police in Brazil have arrested a man after former Arsenal and Chelsea star Willian was sent chilling death threats.

    Willian received heinous messages threatening him with bullets and knives online.

    This caused the Corinthians winger to get the police involved as he feared his wife and two young daughters would also be targeted, the Mirror reported.

    And now the Barra Funda Strategic Special Operations division have revealed they’ve detained a 21-year-old man.

    The perpetrator will be charged for the offence despite claiming he never expected the threats to be taken seriously, the report added.

    Arsenal given transfer tip

    Arsenal have been urged to make a swoop for Manchester United target Christopher Nkunku by Darren Bent.

    Bent told talkSPORT: "And Christopher Nkunku. [He would cost] a lot. There’s talk about him going back to Paris Saint-Germain.

    ‘”But I’d love him. I think he fits the bill, he can play centre-forward, he can play off the left, he can play off the right."

    City want to keep Jesus

    Man City want Gabriel Jesus to pen a new contract, according to reports.

    According to 90min, Pep Guardiola’s side feel that they have offered Jesus a “very good deal” in a bid to entice him to stay.

    Guardiola values the forward highly, having started him in both legs of City’s Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.

  • Justin Lawrence

    Why Jesus should join Chelsea

    Gabriel Jesus should move to Chelsea as he'll be supported by rookies Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe at Arsenal.

    That's according to Stan Collymore who also questioned whether the Gunners duo will be at the club in two year's time.

    He said to the Mirror: "At Arsenal, with the support cast they have, which is still two rookies in Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka — and we don’t know for sure that they will still be wearing Gunners shirts in two years’ time, with Saka being linked with Liverpool and City.

    "If I was Jesus I would be thinking of myself in the blue shirt at Stamford Bridge."

    Jesus tipped for Chelsea transfer

    Gabriel Jesus could fill the void at Chelsea left by Romelu Lukaku who is tipped to leave the Blues this summer.

    That's the opinion of Stan Collymore who reckons Jesus can provide the goals Lukaku failed to at Stamford Bridge.

    Collymore told The Mirror: "But if he goes to Chelsea he could be the player Romelu Lukaku was promised to be but wasn’t.

    "At Chelsea, they create loads of chances, they will stick the ball in the box and Jesus can be the fox in the box I’ve so often said they need.

    "If Jesus just concentrated on doing some really good work in the box, he could be that man."

    Arteta's managerial ability worries

    Mikel Arteta may be unable to extract the best out of Jesus if he moves to Arsenal.

    That's the view of Stan Collymore who told The Mirror: "But let’s say Arsenal get him, my general worry and concern about Arsenal, as ever, is could we trust Mikel Arteta to get the best out of Jesus?

    "Could he be the manager who makes him fulfill his potential, if Pep Guardiola couldn’t? I don’t think so."

  • Justin Lawrence

    Chelsea interest in Gabriel Jesus

    Arsenal may have to fend off interest from Chelsea to sign Gabriel Jesus from Man City.

    That's the view of Stan Collymore who reckons the Blues could enter the race for the Brazilian.

    Collymore told the Mirror: "I don’t think anyone can say Jesus has filled the boots of Sergio Aguero but his goals-to-games ratio has been very good and, when he has been asked to step up, he has done.

    "There are rumours of Chelsea sniffing around as well and I don’t think Arsenal will be the only club in the race for him this summer."

    Trossard tipped for Brighton exit

    Leandro Trossard has been tipped to leave Brighton for a bigger club this summer by Paul Merson.

    Merson said to Sportskeeda: “With the talent Trossard’s got, it wouldn’t surprise me if he played a role for the national team at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, so teams interested in him should probably look to snap him up this summer before his value soares.

    “There are a couple of other players I could have picked from Brighton because they are a really good football-playing side, but I just like the way Trossard plays and have always felt that he’s a bit underrated.

    “No disrespect to Brighton, but he can go higher and easily turn out for one of the top teams in the Premier League.”

    "If your daughter brings Bukayo home, you'd be more than happy!"
    And finally Arsenal are the latest club to be considering a bid for Leeds United ace Raphinha, according to The Telegraph.

    "If your daughter brings Bukayo home, you'd be more than happy!

    “His family have been brilliant with him. Here, he felt the love of the players and staff immediately after the Euros.

    "That will have helped, in the immediate aftermath for him. He's a fantastic talent."

    Idris Elba wants Arsenal to sign a new striker and midfielder this summer.

    Boss Mikel Arteta is expected to dip into the transfer window ahead of a return to European football next season.

    And when asked who Elba would sign, he told Sky Sports: "I'm not the guy to answer that if I'm really honest.

    "But I would say that if I could pick where I wanted to strengthen I would put some legs up front for sure.

    "And I would certainly bolster in the midfield for some creative play."
