Following an exciting last few weeks in the summer transfer window, Everton will travel to Tottenham Hotspur to kick-off their 2020/21 Premier League season.
Carlo Ancelotti has undoubtedly exploited his star power to attract big names from across Europe to the blue half of the Merseyside, with the arrivals of James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure undoubtedly strengthening the Italian manager’s midfield options.
Tottenham too have added the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Matt Doherty to their ranks but their manager wants more arrivals at the club between now and the end of the transfer window. Jose Mourinho is keen to bring in a reliable deputy to Harry Kane to shore up his attacking options.
Both Ancelotti and Mourinho remarkably improved the fortunes of their respective clubs after taking over the reins in the middle of last season. But the managerial duo knows that their sides still have a lot to improve to get where they want to in the Premier League table.
The 28-year-old shot-stopper impressed in the final few stretches of the previous campaign and helped the Gunners win the FA Cup final against Chelsea.
His performance during this season’s Community Shield was even better as Martinez carried out multiple point blank saves to help Mikel Arteta’s side to their first trophy of the new season.
But with Bernd Leno back from his injury and Arteta leading the German ahead of Martinez, the Argentina international is looking set to leave the Emirates stadium between now and the end of the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old England international has been linked with a move to Manchester United after impressing during his three-year-and-ongoing stay at Dortmund.
England and Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho has admitted that he has a sleeping problem which forces him to ‘sometimes’ arrive late at the club’s training sessions, per The Telegraph.
The admission by the 20-year-old about the need to improve his professionalism has come at a time when United are bracing themselves for a battle of wills with Dortmund over his signature.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side have reportedly agreed personal terms with Sancho but are yet to come to an agreement with his club over the forward’s transfer fee.
Dortmund are reportedly unwilling to budge on their €120m valuation of Sancho and have repeatedly told the press that the winger is going to stay at Signal Iduna Park for another season.
