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.


Chelsea to sign Bruno Guimaraes from Newcastle United

Chelsea are eyeing a summer transfer for Newcastle United’s Bruno Guimaraes.

The Brazilian midfielder might be available as the Magpies looks to address their ongoing Financial Fair Play (FFP) concerns, potentially selling key players to stabilise their finances.

Chelsea’s relatively quiet January window is attributed to FFP constraints, prompting them to consider sales, especially of homegrown talents, to facilitate new signings. While Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Conor Gallagher, Chelsea’s reported £50 million asking price might deter a move this month, with a potential transfer in the summer when Gallagher’s contract nears its end.
