Arsenal‘still keen on Justin Kluivert transfer with Roma winger looking to move on this summer and relaunch career’

ARSENAL are reportedly “still keen” on signing Justin Kluivert from Roma this summer.

Mikel Arteta is looking to continue his Gunners rebuild once the transfer window re-opens this summer.

And according to Corriere dello Sport, he could get the attacker as he will be available for £27million.

Speculation has mounted that the 21-year-old could be involved in a player exchange deal with Arsenal.

"Henrikh Mkhitaryan has shone at Roma while on loan this season and is keen to make the move permanent."

However, despite lengthy discussions between the two clubs, that has not materialised.

But the out of favour Dutch winger is still up for sale and it seems the Gunners are still in the race to sign him.

The son of Holland legend Patrick completed a big-money move to the Stadio Olimpico from Ajax in 2018.

But he has failed to continue his rise since and has only scored five goals and provided seven assists during his time there.

Despite that poor form, he still has age on his side.

And Arteta could decide Kluivert would be a huge asset in his attacks as he plots his summer additions.

Juventus and Bayern go head-to-head to sign£110,000 a-week Arsenal full-back

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich are all reportedly interested in securing the services of Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin during this summer’s transfer window.

The 25-year-old has a deal at the Emirates Stadium until the summer of 2023, however, a recent report suggested that the Spaniard was still not convinced by the appointment of Mikel Arteta as the Gunner head-coach.

According to The Express, Ligue 1 champions are ‘keeping tabs’ on the right-back, while Bayern Munich and Juve are also interested in signing him ahead of the 2020-21 season.

The report suggests that the French champions are keen on to sign a new right-back this summer, and the Gunners could be open to a sale due to Cedric Soares’s arrival on a permanent basis.

Bellerin has been with the North London club since 2013, playing 200 games for the club in all competitions, including 21 during the 2019-20 season.

The Spain international has only played 13 Premier League appearances this season, although he has been unavailable for long spells following the through injury.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s plans for next campaign have been dealt a blow after talented midfielder Orkun Kokcu signed a new contract with Feyenoord.

"Since the turn of the year, the 19-year-old midfielder has been strongly linked with a summer move to the Norht London club after stunning form in the Eredivisie."

Having found back of the net six times from 42 games in all competitions, the Norht London club were allegedly prepared to pay in excess of £20m for the creative playmaker.

Man Utd join AC Milan, Chelsea push for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano

Manchester United have jumped into the battle for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano.

AC Milan have made a serious move for Upamecano this week.

Waldeckische Landeszeitung reports Milan are joined by Bayern Munich, United, Chelsea and Arsenal in pursuit of the Frenchman, who has a €60m release clause built into his current deal.

His contract has less than a year to run.

RBL chief Oliver Mintzlaff said recently to Kicker: "I expect he will play with us next season.

"Timo Werner stayed, and I expect that we will do our homework properly so that Dayot will stay."

Thomas Partey contract claim questioned as Arsenal eye agreement

Arsenal underlined their promise under Mikel Arteta with an important win over freshly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool.

The Gunners beat Jurgen Klopp's side 2-1 at the Emirates to keep their hopes of European football alive.

Whatever happens from now until the end of the season, Gunners boss Arteta has reiterated that he needs funds to strengthen his squad in the summer.

Central midfield is thought to be a key area to improve, with Dani Ceballos set to return to Real Madrid after his season-long loan finishes.

Matteo Guendouzi also faces an uncertain future and Arteta could be forced into the market to replace the Spaniard.

And one name that has been linked is Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.

With that in mind, here is a round-up of everything we know so far about Arsenal's plan to sign the midfielder.

The Atletico Madrid midfielder has a £44.8 million release clause in his contract at the Spanish club, and last summer the player's agent confirmed the presence of the clause.

"I can say that right now, I haven’t talked to anyone, even if Inter are a top club," he told Passione," as per Football Ghana. "There’s a €50m (£44.8m) release clause in his contract, a figure that’s cheap for a player like Thomas.
