Arsenal have been given a green signal in their pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder Isco, reports Buzzsport. Arsene Wenger is known as a long-term admirer of the 24-year-old, and it seems like he will finally be able to get his man.
The Spanish international is unhappy with his playing time under manager Rafa Benitez, and he is looking for a move from the club. According to the report, Los Blancos are expected to let go of their player for a fee of £29m.
Everton wants to sign Arsenal defender
Everton are interested in signing Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, reports Sunday People Sport. According to the report, Everton manager Roberto Martinez is resigned to losing star defender John Stones in near future and has identified Chambers as Stones’ replacement.
Chambers has had chances hard to come by this season for the Gunners. The Southampton youth academy product signed for the Gunners in 2014 for a fee rising to potential £16 million. The England international had made only five league appearances for the Gunners this season.
Besiktas interested in David Ospina
Turkish club Besiktas are interested in signing Arsenal’s second choice goalkeeper David Ospina. The Colombian goalkeeper lost his place as club’s first choice goalkeeper to Petr Cech after the Czech international’s arrival in the summer. Ospina did his chances of regaining his spot no favours when he dropped the ball into his net in the Champions League 3-2 defeat against Olympiacos.
The 27-year-old arrived at Arsenal from Ligue 1 club Nice in 2014 and replaced Wojciech Szczesny in the starting eleven in his first year with the Gunners. In the following year, he became the victim of similar treatment after Cech deservedly claimed his position as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.
Cebi told Beyaz TV: “We are interested in Ospina and goalkeepers of his calibre but just because we want him does not mean he will come. We have to agree with his club and take his contract into consideration.”
