Arsenal aim to secure Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber deals ahead of US Pre-Season Tour

Arsenal are optimistic about securing the signing of Declan Rice from West Ham United before their pre-season tour in the US.

Although the Gunners have reached a club-record agreement of £105 million with the Hammers, the transfer has not yet been made official.

Rice reportedly underwent a medical examination with the North Londoners on Friday, but the deal’s final wording still needs approval from the club’s lawyers.


Atletico Madrid Set to Secure Signing of Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta on a Free Transfer

Atletico Madrid are on the brink of signing Chelsea’s veteran defender Cesar Azpilicueta, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Azpilicueta holds the record for the longest-serving player in the Blues squad, and he is now preparing to bid farewell to Stamford Bridge. Initially, the Spaniard had agreed on personal terms with Inter Milan, but a change of heart occurred once Atletico expressed their interest. In a fascinating turn of events, it seems that the defender’s family played a significant role in his decision to return to his home country. As a result, Azpilicueta is set to join Atletico Madrid on a free transfer.
