The countdown is on to the European Championships this summer, where a host of emerging stars will be trying to earn big-money moves to some top clubs, but a number of our targets will not be involved in the tournament.
Karim Benzema is linked with a move to Arsenal every summer, and this year is no different. The Real Madrid striker has been in the press for all the wrong reasons this summer, and his exit actually appears much more believable at present. Maybe we will finally get our man?
Another Champions League finalist is being linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, with Yannick Carrasco said to be the subject of an offer. The midfielder scored the equaliser at the weekend, and is highly rated.
Another creative forward in Maxi Romero is also believed to be a strong target, but we are said to be in the advanced stages of negotiations over his deal however. The youngster is claimed to be set to stay with his club until at least January, before joining up with us at the end of Argentina’s domestic season.
Calum Chambers helped the England Under-21s to lift the Toulon Tournament this weekend, and he has talked up a potential exit from the club this summer. He wants regular first-team action, and you can hardly blame him. He will likely go out on loan, where he will hopefully grow into a player worthy of a place in our starting line-up.
Inter Milan’s Jeison Murillo could potentially be coming in to cover his place in defence. The Colombian has enjoyed an impressive season in Serie A, and we are believed to be considering making an offer for him.
Can you see any truth in the latest rumours?
