Aston Villa are in the transfer market to lure Chelsea’s 22-year-old forward Tammy Abraham and Arsenal’s 27-year-old goalkeeper Emi Martinez to the club. They are ready to pay £10 million for the Arsenal’s goalkeeper.
On the other hand, Tammy’s representatives have refused to give the club audience. The England international who played for Villa on loan from Chelsea during the 2018-2019 season prefers to remain at Chelsea to fight for a place in Frank Lampard‘s squad.
Below are other latest updates from the transfer market;
Manchester City target Pep and Messi
Manchester City are making effort to keep their manager Pep Guardiola at the club beyond June 2021 when his current contract with the club will expire. They are also pushing to land embattled Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi this summer. Messi and Pep have reportedly contacted themselves recently and City could be the destination of the 33-year-old Argentine forward.
James Rodriguez transfer to Everton
Everton are on the verge to seal a deal for a new player. Reports say Real Madrid’s 29-year-old Colombia international James Rodriguez would be at the club in the coming days to undergo his medical which would lead him to sign a season loan deal with the Premier League side.
Serge Aurier rejects Wolves
Tottenham Hotspur have sealed Matt Doherty’s move from Wolves but Tottenham’s Ivory Cist defender Serge Aurier has reportedly refused to go to Wolves. It is being speculated that Tottenham used Aurier as a part of the deal that brought 28-year-old Republic of Ireland’s Matt Doherty to the club. Hence, their 27-year-old defender is expected to move to Wolves.
Inter Milan interest in Tanguy Ndombele
Inter Milan are not ready to pay Tottenham’s £55 million asking price for 23-year-old France midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. The Italian Serie A club are insisting that the Premier League club should reduce their asking price if they want to sell the midfielder to them.
Donny van de Beek transfer saga
Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have been very interested in the services of Ajax and Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek. However, the 23-year-old midfielder is reportedly waiting for a deal from Barcelona. Hence, he can only come to the Premier League if Barcelona fail to bid for him.
Kevin de Bruyne’s contract talks on hold
Manchester City has to wait a little longer before they can be able to ascertain whether their best playmaker, Kevin de Bruyne, would continue to be the player of the club or not. The representatives of the 29-year-old Belgium midfielder have been in talks with City for a contract extension which would see him earn £350,000-a-week. Unfortunately for City, the talks have been halted because de Bruyne’s agent is under the custody of the police.
Newcastle United invade Arsenal
Newcastle United want two Arsenal’s stars – 24-year-old English defender Rob Holding (loan deal) and 23-year-old Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Nile (permanent deal) in this transfer window. Unfortunately for the club, Arsenal wants nothing less than £25 million from any club that wants to sign him this summer.
