Denis Suarez

Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez is said to be fed up with life under manager Ernesto Valverde following his lack of game time this season.

The report from Spanish media outlet RAC1 reveals that Denis Suarez has 80% chance of leaving Barcelona when the transfer window reopens in the next few weeks.

julian weigl

Italian Serie A giants AC Milan have joined Arsenal in the race to sign highly rated Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl ahead of the upcoming transfer window scheduled to begin as from the start of next month.

Italian news platform calciomercato claim that AC Milan manager Gennaro Gattuso has been given the greenlight to push for a move for the German midfielder.

AC Milan have already crashed out of the Europa League and the priority is solely Champions League qualification for next season via the league route.

Marvin Plattenhardt

Arsenal could make a move for highly-rated Hertha Berlin defender Marvin Plattenhardt when the transfer window reopens in few weeks time.

The Gunners have had defensive issues this season especially at left-back and manager Unai Emery is keen to address the situation.

Marvin Plattenhardt has emerged as one of the best left-backs on the German Bundesliga scene since he joined Hertha Berlin in the summer of 2014.

The 26-year-old rose through the ranks at fellow German side Nurnberg before signing for Hertha Berlin.

He has scored seven goals and 20 assists in 133 appearances for the club in all competitions.

Marvin Plattenhardt was part of the Germany squad that failed to impress at the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

Germany were the defending champions only for the four-time world champions to crash out in the group stage of the tournament.

The Germans surprised finished bottom of Group F behind South Korea, Mexico and leaders Sweden.

Plattenhardt would almost certainly provide a lasting solution to the problematic left-back position at Arsenal.

Gunners boss Unai Emery has used six players in the left-back position this season and this is as a result of respective hamstring injuries to first-choice left-backs Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac.

paul merson

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson has revealed the signing that would help to solve the defensive woes that have characterised the Red Devils’ season.

Paul Merson said that he will boost the ailing Manchester United defence with the signing of Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk.

The footballer turned pundit spoke about Virgil Van Dijk and Manchester United while he was on popular English media outlet Sky Sports ahead of the Red Devils’ Premier League clash with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday evening.

He described Dutch international centre back Van Dijk as the best defender at the moment.

In addition, the three-time European champions have conceded a whopping 26 goals in just 16 Premier League games.
