Italian Serie A champions Juventus have held talks over the potential transfer of Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez this summer.

Chilean international Alexis Sanchez has been a flop at Old Trafford since he joined Manchester United from fellow Premier League club Arsenal.

The 30-year-old signed for the Red Devils at the start of last year following the swap deal with Arsenal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan join the Gunners.

According to popular Italian transfer news portal Calciomercato, the agent of Alexis Sanchez has held talks with Juventus officials as he looks for a new club for his client.

It was revealed that Fernando Felicevich met with Juventus director Fabio Paratici to talk about his client.

Fernando Felicevich has embarked on a European tour with the aim of finding a new club for Alexis Sanchez.

The former Barcelona and Udinese player is surplus to requirements at Manchester United this summer but the Red Devils might struggle to move him out of the club.

He has three years left on his current contract at Manchester United and the player earns around £505,000 on a weekly basis.

Alexis Sanchez has had an injury-hit season but he has failed to produce anytime he’s on the pitch.

He has scored just two goals in all competitions this season.

Kalidou Koulibaly

If the words of Kevin Campbell are to be followed by North London outfit Arsenal, then the Gunners will be moving for three players in this coming summer transfer window to boost their squad.

The Gunners are having it difficult and struggling to win titles even under manager Mikel Arteta and analysis points to the direction that more additions are needed to be able to compete against bigger sides.

With the summer transfer window underway, Kevin Campbell stated that Arsenal should focus on recruiting players into three positions. He noted the central defence and central midfield as the main areas needed to be equipped if the team must compete to win titles next season.

The former Arsenal striker suggests Thomas Partey and Adrien Rabiot from Atletico Madrid and Juventus respectively in the midfield while a player like Napoli star, Kalidou Koulibaly for the defence.

He stated that the club needs players of these qualities, stating that after watching the North London derby something must be done in the summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, the transfer dealings of the North London outfit will be dependent on Arsenal’s transfer budget and their qualification to the Europa league because most players will snub clubs without European football.

Barca cause tension in Arsenal following transfer speculation

There will be unease at Arsenal, especially among the fans with reports that Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona have made their star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang their second target ahead of the summer.

Barcelona have made Lautaro Martinez from the Italian Serie A club Inter Milan their first and major target but with the £100 million price tag slammed on him, they could be forced to abandon him for the Gabon international.

This development is coming when Arsenal are on the verge of losing their bid for Europa League qualification, a situation that could force most of the star players out of the club.

More so, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is yet to sign a new deal and that could be a factor for the Catalans to snap up the signature of the Gabon international striker.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been outstanding for the Gunners since last year, picking up the EPL golden boot in the previous season and already in the contest for this season. Losing him will be a big one for the North London club and it is something the fans will never wish for.

It is feared that a bid from Barcelona might be difficult for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to reject, especially if the Gunners fail to qualify for the Europa League as they are confirmed to miss the Champions League next season.

Marcus Rashford

Emerging reports claim that French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are keen on the signature of Marcus Rashford from the English Premier League club Man United.

Marcus Rashford is one of the youngest talents at the Old Trafford and is tipped to have a good future at the club and for the England national team.

However, Paris Saint Germain are keen to strengthen their attack and have identified the England international as the ideal player needed to deliver goals at the club.

The Independent reports that Marcus Rashford is the major target for the Ligue 1 giants with Thomas Tuchel as his major as they have concluded plans on making a bid for him once the summer transfer window is opened.

Paris Saint Germain are reported to have learned of the £100 million fee for the Red Devils attacker and they are willing to spend that heavy on him but it is unlikely that Man United will let him go in this summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear that none of his attackers will be leaving the club anytime in the summer transfer window as he looks forward to working with them in the coming season.

Alexandre Lacazette

The name of France international Alexandre Lacazette has repeatedly been mentioned in Arsenal’s transfer exit list with various reports linking him to other clubs.

The latest is the report claims that Italian Serie A outfit, Juventus have identified the former Lyon striker as an option for transfer for the replacement of Gonzalo Higuain on a long-term basis.

The Italian Serie A giants have Arkadiusz Milik from Napoli as their major target but the Gunners man, alongside Raul Jimenez will be an option if they fail to land the striker.

Alexandre Lacazette has been previously linked with a move to Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid with claims that he would be used as a swap deal for Ghanaian midfielder, Thomas Partey.

Thomas Partey is believed to be the major target for Arteta as reports claim that manager Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the midfielder and would be bringing him to add depth to the middle.

Now that the future of Matteo Guendouzi at the Emirates Stadium is bleak, there are chances that Arsenal will invest in the Atletico Madrid midfielder to help fortify the team.

However, commentators have argued that manager Mikel Arteta will not let go of Alexandre Lacazette in the transfer window, especially after claiming that he wants to have more of him in subsequent games and seasons.

James Rodriguez

English Premier League outfit Man United have been handed a summer transfer boost with Real Madrid star James Rodriguez making it clear that he wants to join the club this summer transfer window.

James Rodriguez has not been as good as he used to when he first joined Real Madrid, and with the lack of opportunities in the team, he is forced to seek a move away. Recall that the Colombian was sent out on loan to German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich but the club is uninterested in keeping him on a permanent deal.

According to Sport via Team Talk, the Red Devils have made their interest known and have held preliminary talks with James Rodriguez’s camp with a deal likely to be sealed in the summer transfer window.

North London outfit Arsenal were also interested in the service of the Real Madrid star, alongside Everton and Wolves but they were not been successful in their wish despite the chances of him leaving the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, the chances of having James Rodriguez join the Old Trafford are dependent on Man United’s success in their bid to secure a Champions League spot as they may lose James Rodriguez to other suitors with Champions League hope.

No way this is happening, Arsenal outcast for Liverpool deal?

It is unlikely Liverpool fans will want to learn of the statement credited to their former player Stan Collymore which claims that Arsenal outcast, Matteo Guendouzi won’t be a bad idea for the club, stressing that he would succeed under manager Jurgen Klopp.

Matteo Guendouzi seems an outcast at the Emirates Stadium right now, owing to his outburst with manager Mikel Arteta over attitude issues and has been sent away from the team to train alone.

Reports claim he has told the Gunners hierarchy of his decision to leave the club in this summer transfer window and is already being linked with clubs within England and abroad.

No doubt, Stan Collymore is a fan of the French midfielder and has tipped him to be outstanding in Liverpool and Man City because he would be playing alongside good players.

The former Reds man noted that managers Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola might not agree with him on this but the talent of the young midfielder is too obvious and he is more fit for the English Premier League than other leagues.

We will not be surprised if Arsenal let go of Matteo Guendouzi in this summer transfer window but that won’t happen without cashing in on him. His quality and value have increased since he joined the club and that could be a good deal for the Gunners.

However, it would be a transfer to talk about if Matteo Guendouzi joins Liverpool or Man City

Paul Merson

Paul Merson seems to have had enough of Arsenal players’ errors as he made a damning analysis of the club’s performance and how almost impossible it would be for a manager to succeed at the club.

Lamenting the errors by defenders, Paul Merson is shocked that Arsenal players do not know the basics of the game, stressing that they cannot be helped by the combinations of the best managers in the world.

According to him, Arsenal will not be able to succeed even if you bring in the combinations of Pep Guardiola, Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho to coach the team because of the silly mistakes they consistently make.

Merson noted that in addition to the errors by the defenders, the players cannot pass the ball five yards, but make efforts to get 80% completion of passes, which he claims to be irrelevant. He stressed that the target of any defender should be to keep a clean sheet and not to complete passes.

Arsenal suffered another 2-1 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday in their North London derby and that was a blow to their bid to earn a place in any European competition next season. The Mikel Arteta team will struggle to play in the Europa League next season.

Arsenal take expensive transfer decision on biggest prospect’s future

One of the biggest prospects at Arsenal is Konstantinos Mavropanos, but his quality is not being enjoyed at the moment because of his lack of playing time.

The Gunners chiefs have therefore agreed, according to reports to send him out on loan for the 2020/2021 season to be able to continue his development, rather than remain at the club without no playing time.

Arsenal can boast of eight defenders and with the coming of William Saliba, it would be difficult for the 21-year-old to secure regular playing time, having made just eight appearances for the North London outfit, since he joined.

He joined FC Nurnberg in January for a loan deal and his 12 appearances for the club were hailed as an impactful one for him. Because of his impressive performance in his short loan spell at the German Bundesliga outfit, he is reported to be on the wanted list of a number of clubs.

Stuttgart is reported to be keen on his signature as well as Werder Bremen, amongst other suitors. Reports claim that Arsenal chiefs are already working to secure a good loan deal for the youngster and have been holding talks in that regard with the player set to sign for Stuttgart.
