Saka on Juventus and Atletico Madrid’s radar

The 20-year-old has become a key part of Mikel Arteta’s side and is highly valued at the Emirates. In fact, he signed a new four-year contract at Arsenal in July last year.

But that hasn’t deterred interest from Juventus or Atletico, with Arsenal said to be reluctant to accept offers below €50 million (£43m). [Calciomercato – in Italian]

Marquinhos to join Real Madrid?

Real Madrid are interested in Marquinhos but accept transfer talks with Paris Saint-Germain won’t be easy.

The Brazilian defender has improved and is rated as one of the best in the world. Real Madrid may have to spend around €75 million to sign him if they are to convince PSG into a sale.

Antonio Rudiger, Matthias Ginter, Milan Skriniar, and Pau Torres are also on the club’s shortlist for central defenders. [Fichajes – in Spanish]
