English Premier League club Arsenal are insistent that they want midfielder Granit Xhaka to remain at the club and they have confirmed their interest in him by offering him a new long-term contract to continue his career at the Emirates. The Switzerland international midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Italian Serie A, with Jose Mourinho said to be keen to sign him for his new club AS Roma. There were reports that the midfielder held talks with the Italian club and was close to signing for then this summer but it looks as though Mourinho would have to look elsewhere in his search for a new midfielder to sign for his club.
Xhaka had an outstanding campaign with his country at the Euros and his stock rose as well but the Gunners know that they have to try to keep him at the club as they continue their rebuild process. The north London outfit, manager by Mikel Arteta, are well aware of Xhaka’s qualities and they confirmed their long-standing interest in him by making him their club captain some months ago. He has now earned himself a new contract and is set to sign the massive new deal at the Emirates Stadium. Continue reading “XHAKA SET TO SIGN NEW LONG-TERM CONTRACT AT ARSENAL”
Inter Milan are ready to splash some cash this summer as reports are currently claiming that they are getting very close to signing defender Denzel Dumfries from Dutch club PSV Eindhoven in the coming days. The Netherlands international defender, who is a major transfer target of Tottenham Hotspur, is believed to be keen on a switch to Italy this summer where he could end up signing for Inter Milan. The player was with the Netherlands squad and had a very decent campaign at the Euros tournament before his country’s campaign ended in a disappointing fashion.
Inter are willing to take the central defender on loan from PSV but the Dutch club would rather prefer to let him go on a permanent deal this summer. Tottenham are also interested in the 25-year-old and will likely propose a permanent purchase if they strengthen their interest in the Dutchman. Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santos is keen to start pulling off his signings at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and is already looking out for players that he can get over the line in the summer.

Manchester have joined a list of clubs to have shown interest in signing Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand this summer, according to Goal. The defender whose contract is set to expire at the end of this season was locked in talks with the Saints over a contract renewal but those talks have reportedly broken down and he is set for a summer exit when the transfer window opens next month.
If Bertrand and Southampton fail to find an agreement before the opening of the transfer window he will be leaving as a free agent and can then talk to any club he would love to join. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reportedly grown frustrated with his current starting left-back Benjamin Mendy and wants to replace the French defender this summer. The Spanish manager has now identified Bertrand as the ideal replacement for Mendy who could be on his way out of the starting team or even the club this summer.
