Arsenal very close to sealing free transfer

Arsenal very close to sealing free transfer
The 27-year-old will be a free agent in the summer

Despite the fact that football leagues across most of Europe remain suspended due to the coronavirus crisis, Arsenal remain busy in the transfer market.

Arsenal are very close to securing the free-transfer of the soon-to-be out-of-contract PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa, according to a report by todofichajes.

The French full-back has long been a transfer target for the Gunners who want to sign another left-back despite securing the services of Kieran Tierney from Celtic last summer.

Tierney spent the majority of his first season at the club on the injury table, with his absence allowing academy graduate Bukayo Saka impress the Gunners’ faithful with his performances.

However, if the report mentioned above is to be believed, Mikel Arteta isn’t going to put more pressure on the youngster as he attempts to close the signing of the 27-year-old France international.

While on one end the Gunners are looking to add more names to their squad, they might see one of their star players leave the side, on the other.

That may happen if Real Madrid, who are in the transfer market for a striker, could complete the signing of Arsenal striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang whom Zinedine Zidane’s side have identified as a priority signing as per Sport.

Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates Stadium has been a matter of discussion for quite some time. The former Borussia Dortmund forward has made no secret of his desire to play in the Champions League, a competition Arsenal might not qualify for next season.

Despite their resurgence under Arteta, Arsenal currently sit at 9th place in the Premier League table. Eight points separate the North London club from 4th placed Chelsea. However, the Gunners do have a game in hand against reigning champions Manchester City.

Amazon eye naming rights for new Tottenham stadium

Daily Mail reports that the American technology firm are genuinely interested to secure a naming rights deal for Spurs new £1billion stadium.

However, Amazon are far from being the only party interested in seeing their name on Tottenham’s glitzy new stadium, with sportswear giant Nike also reported to be among the interested parties.

Amazon face the advantage of having significant connections with the club, with its streaming company Amazon Prime filming Spurs’ upcoming behind the scenes documentary ‘All or Nothing’.

The report further claims that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is confident of securing a £25m per season naming rights deal for the stadium for at least a decade.
