    GOOD MORNING, ARSENAL FANS

    The Gunners face losing out to Juventus for Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli – but could soon tie Euros star Kieran Tierney to a new long contract.

    Juve will reportedly bid £26million plus Radu Dragusin for Italy star Locatelli.

    The 23-year-old netted twice in last Wednesday's 3-0 win over Switzerland.

    But most Arsenal fans will surely be focusing on the news that Scotland left-back Tierney seems likely to stay beyond 2024.

    Boss Mikel Arteta, though, must boost his midfield ranks as Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos could all depart.

    And Lucas Torreira is rated a Lazio target – if Arsenal lower their valuation.

    Meanwhile, it's claimed Newcastle could offer keeper Freddie Woodman in exchange for midfielder Joe Willock.

    And Emile Smith Rowe is tipped to finally sign a new deal, despite interest from Aston Villa.

    ‘UTD & LIVERPOOL WERE SUPER LEAGUE DRIVING FORCES’

    Barcelona chief Joan Laporta claims Manchester United and Liverpool were the ‘real founders’ of the controversial European Super League.

    The football world was stunned in April when 12 of the continent’s top clubs – including the Premier League’s ‘Big Six’ – announced they were forming a breakaway division.

    The closed-shop project would have replaced the Champions League and guaranteed annual participation for its ‘Dirty Dozen’ founders.

    However, a furious fan backlash prompted nine members to swiftly withdraw, leaving just Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus in the ESL.

    But despite looking like one of the main guilty parties, Barcelona president Laporta insists that English giants United and Liverpool were the original orchestrators of the ESL.

    Laporta claimed: “Liverpool and United were the real founders of the Super League.

    “Uefa threatened and was demagogic. The clubs have still not paid the compensation for leaving.

    “The Super League project is alive. It will be the most attractive competition in the world, and it will be based on meritocracy and solidarity.”

    GUNNERS HUNT WHIZKID SANCHEZ

    Arsenal are interested in signing teenage defender Aron Sanchez, according to reports.

    The 18-year-old has impressed in the Peruvian top flight and will be easier to sign than a lot of European players due to new Brexit transfer rules.

    According to football.london, Sanchez – also known as Jose Sanchez – has been offered a trial at the Emirates.

    The centre-back has enjoyed a remarkable rise in the last 12 months, breaking into Academia Cantolao's team and making 20 appearances in the Peruvian Primera Division.

    Sanchez is also on the cusp of becoming a full international, earning a place in Peru's provisional Copa America squad before being cut.

    GUNNERS FEAR BROKEN TELLI DEAL

    Arsenal have suffered a blow in the transfer chase for Manuel Locatelli

    The Gunners have been tracking the star following his impressive campaign in Serie A.

    Now Goal claims Juventus are hoping to usurp the Premier League outfit as they ready an approach for Locatelli.

    And the Bianconeri are readying an official approach to Sassuolo with a £26m offer and hope the inclusion of 19-year-old Romanian centre-back Dragusin will help them seal the deal.

    Despite speculation over his future, Locatelli is refusing to comment on the transfer reports.

    He said: “ The transfer rumours are] just talk. I will decide after the European Championship.

    “I rely on what happens on the pitch, the real things, everything else is just gossip, it's useless to talk about it.”
