The season is nearly over, and with Spurs pretty much handing the Premier League title to Chelsea last night, it makes sense to look partly at the coming campaign.
One player who has already been claimed to have agreed terms with our club is Saed Kolasinac, but the latest reports claim things are not completed. We have supposedly offered him a £119K a week contract to try and tempt him to join on a free transfer from Schalke this summer when his contract runs out.
We are also claimed to be targeting another left-back in Jose Luis Gaya, who has been excelling at Valencia this term. but Man City are also believed to be interested, and his fee may also be inflated by his contract which has three years to run. He would be an exciting addition if we could make it happen, and Kolasinac would not have to spell an end to this deal, with both Gibbs and Monreal failing to impress this term.
One player we may face strong competition from is Alexandre Lacazette, who is now believed to be eyed by Atletico Madrid. The Spanish giants are claimed to be leading the chase, and are willing to meet Lyon’s valuation, which could leave the Gunners struggling to bring in the needed striking addition come the summer.
One player linked with the exit door this summer is Hector Bellerin, and Real Madrid are the latest name to be thrown into the hat. The Galacticos are claimed to be trying to tempt us with a swap deal involving Danilo, but with Hector under contract until 2023, we have no need to sell.
Should we further our interest in any of the above? Has the Ox taken Bellerin’s first-team role?
