Jesus tweets Man City goodbye ahead of Arsenal move

It’s FINALLY happening, Arsenal fans!

Gabriel Jesus has bid farewell to Manchester City on social media ahead of his £45m switch to Arsenal being confirmed at long last.

“Thanks Man City and all the people who made this club my life for all these years,” he tweeted. “Time to live a new dream!”


Tottenham target Hincapie deal

A new name on the Tottenham transfer radar in the form of Piero Hincapie.

Spurs are expected to sign Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet on loan, with the Frenchman reportedly due in north London for a medical ahead of his season-long loan move.

However, that does not appear to have stopped Antonio Conte from looking at other defenders.

Calcio Mercato claims that Tottenham are on the trail of Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Hincapie, along with Serie A side Roma.

The Ecuador international’s valuation is said to stand at around €25m-€30m, with AC Milan also said to be interested.

Arsenal poised to increase Martinez bid

Returning to Arsenal for a moment and it seems that the Gunners are primed to make the next move in the battle to sign Lisandro Martinez.

The Gunners and Manchester United are fighting it out over the Argentina defender, who wants to leave Ajax this summer for the Premier League.

The Daily Mail report that Arsenal are now ready to increase their latest £38m proposal for Martinez, with United having offered that fee last week with more guaranteed money up front.

However, Ajax are said to value the versatile centre-back at around the £43m mark.

Sterling to Chelsea close after new talks

Chelsea are finally closing in on a deal for Raheem Sterling.

The England forward has long since emerged as Thomas Tuchel’s top target as he seeks to revamp his attack in the wake of Romelu Lukaku’s return to Inter Milan.

Progress with regards to a switch for Sterling has appeared slow, but The Sun claim that fresh talks were held with Manchester City over the weekend and progressed well.

No fee has yet been finalised between the two clubs, but it surely won’t be far away now.

Arsenal make Dybala move

Arsenal are due to announce the signing of Gabriel Jesus today.

But Mikel Arteta wants more striking reinforcements in the shape of Argentina marksman Paulo Dybala.

That is according to La Repubblica in Italy, who suggest that Arsenal have made an enquiry regarding signing the 28-year-old on a free transfer this summer.

Dybala is a sought-after free agent having left Juventus last month following the expiration of his contract in Turin.

Reports suggest that Tottenham, Manchester United and Napoli are also interested in Dybala, who had looked likely to join Inter Milan.

ICYMI – Djed Spence to Tottenham update

The Sun’s Tom Barclay has suggested a move to Tottenham for Djed Spence might not be a formality, as has been reported elsewhere.

“There have been mixed messages on this one. I understand it’s not as far as people have suggested. Some people have been suggesting it’s a done deal and there is a medical,” he said.

“It does feel like this is going to eventually end up with Djed Spence at Tottenham, so I get that, but Spurs are pretty adamant that no agreements have been reached.”
