Matthijs de Ligt

Matthijs de Ligt has been in the news for many weeks as he is being linked to a number of big teams in Europe after impressing in the just concluded season.

The likes of Man United, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are all linked with the star player but no decision has been made until after his engagement with the national team.

An earlier report had hinted that Matthijs de Light would be joining the French Ligue 1 outfit as it is claimed that his parents are already in search of a house for him but former Premier League striker Darren Bent has suggested that there would be a surprise in the pursuit of the 19-year-old.

He noted that there is a bid by the club to get Matthijs de Light and Virgil Van Dijk play together as they would be a great duo for the team in their bid to push for the title.

However, Matthijs de Light seem to be skeptical about a move to England after hinting that it would be strange to him.

Donny Van Der Beek

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who could be shown the exit door due to poor results, is far from convinced with what he has seen from Ajax youngster Donny Van de Beek so far this season.

The Dutchman was linked with a switch to the Old Trafford outfit in the summer but the Norwegian tactician turned down the chance to capture his services.

According to British media The Mirror, Solskjaer was pleased with the fact that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were available ahead of the season, hence, he kicked against splashing £35m on the midfielder.

Unfortunately, the decision seemed to have backfired judging by the team’s lack of creativity in the middle of the pitch.

Despite the current uninspiring form at Old Trafford, reports claimed that Solskjaer isn’t ready to change his mind and he won’t be competing with Real Madrid for the Ajax youngster when the winter transaction period commences in January.

Real Madrid are now tipped as the possible destination for the Dutchman who helped Ajax to a semifinal spot in last season’s Champions League competition.

The Los Blancos are told to offer an increased price of £100m by the Eredivisie side if they must lure the young midfielder to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez made some saves to keep the scoreline at goalless before young midfielder Joe Willock gave the Gunners the lead with seven first half minutes to go off an assist from Bukayo Saka.

The Gunners also had Emiliano Martinez to thank for keeping the hosts at bay with some commanding goalkeeping.

Bukayo Saka then went from provider to goalscorer in the final ten minutes of the game shortly after Eintracht Frankfurt had been reduced to ten men.

Midfielder Dominik Kohr was sent off for two yellow cards.

Saka scored the second goal off an assist from summer signing and second half substitute Nicholas Pepe before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wrapped up the victory off another assist from the impressive Bukayo Saka.
