Willian might leave Arsenal, Milenkovic to West Ham, and Madueke to West Ham, according to Taylor’s Tuesday Transfers.
Express Sport’s Ryan Taylor brings you the latest edition of Taylor’s Tuesday Transfers…
After Jack Grealish’s £100 million British record transfer to Manchester City from boyhood club Aston Villa, it’s been a busy week in the transfer market, but there’s plenty to suggest more big deals are on the way, including Lionel Messi and Romelu Lukaku’s proposed moves to PSG and Chelsea, respectively. Yet away from the thirst for formal announcements, there is still plenty of low-profile stories that are continuing to develop. Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Newcastle United, West Ham United, Norwich City, and Stoke City are among the clubs mentioned in this week’s column…
Willian’s absence from Arsenal’s pre-season friendly loss to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday was interpreted by Express Sport as a sign he could be on his way out before the transfer window closes.
The Brazilian trained ahead of the fixture but was simply not selected by Mikel Arteta despite no illness or fitness problems.
Arsenal have yet to receive any offers for the player, who has two years left on his contract after joining on a free transfer from Chelsea last summer.
Willian, 33, is Arsenal’s third highest-paid player, earning a whopping £192,000 a week, which is why Arteta is eager to offload him this summer to free up some cash.
Inter Miami have been credited with interest in the past few months but the MLS club are not thought to be an active option in play, as things stand.
Tottenham and Southampton have joined Borussia Dortmund in the race for the latest young English foreign export success story in the form of Noni Madueke but PSV are adamant the teenage sensation is not for sale.
Spurs are left licking their wounds after seeing their former youth star, who only moved to Holland in 2018, burst in the Eredivisie.
Last season, the 19-year-old had a breakout season, scoring nine goals in 32 appearances across all competitions, catapulting his name into the spotlight.
Madueke has already continued where he left off since returning from his holidays, scoring a rocket in the first leg of PSV’s Champions League qualifier against Midtjylland, having also previously found the target against Galatasaray.
In the 4-0 thumping of Ajax in “Brinkwire Summary News,” he scored the first goal.
