Arsenal lining up Douglas Mendes swoop

Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have reportedly set their sights on 19-year-old Brazilian defender Douglas Mendes.

According to a report by Football Transfers, Douglas Mendes is the subject of interest from Arsenal. The Gunners are in the market for a young centre-back heading into the summer transfer window. And sporting director Edu is looking to execute a Gabriel Martinelli-like deal to land the 19-year-old defensive sensation.


Champions League last-16 preview

Having navigated their way to the last 16, Europe’s elite are now gearing up for the business end of the Champions League with some tantalizing ties waiting just around the corner. Some giants of European football remain in the hunt for the European cup but clearing a path to the last eight and keeping their dream of dethroning Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City alive is shaping up to be an extremely difficult challenge to overcome. Here’s an early look at what to expect from the Champions League last-16. 


Arsenal keeping tabs on Kalvin Phillips

Arsenal are considering a January move for Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips if they lose Jorginho, according to Fichajes.

Phillips, who joined the Citizens for £45 million from Leeds United 18 months ago, has struggled to secure regular playing time under Pep Guardiola.

The midfielder’s lack of opportunities could jeopardise his spot in the England squad for Euro 2024. Despite Rodri’s suspension, Guardiola opted for other midfield options like Matheus Nunes and Mateo Kovacic in a recent match.


Arsenal lining up move for Dusan Vlahovic?

Arsenal’s reported interest in signing the Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic from Juventus could be a game-changer for the Gunners.

Vlahovic, who is valued at €80 million, has had a challenging spell at Juventus, failing to meet expectations since his big-money move. A fresh start at the Emirates might be just what the 23-year-old needs to reignite his career.


Arsenal join race to sign Mohammed Kudus

Arsenal have reportedly joined Manchester United in the pursuit of signing Ajax’s talented attacker Mohammed Kudus.

Despite already spending over £200m on transfers, the Gunners seems keen on bolstering their squad further.

Kudus’ exceptional performance in the 2022/23 season for Ajax, with 18 goals and 8 assists, has caught the attention of the North London club. Eager for a new challenge, the young player’s availability has sparked a potential bidding war between Arsenal and Man United.
