    Arsenal's first Dybs

    Paulo Dybala is considering a move to the Premier League this summer.

    Dybala officially left Juventus when his contract expired at the end of last month and is now a free agent.

    Inter Milan have been heavily linked with a swoop for the Argentina international, who met with the club's vice-president Javier Zanetti last month.

    However, according to Sky Sport Italia, the Nerazzurri have put the forward on stand-by following the return of Romelu Lukaku on loan from Chelsea.

    The 28-year-old will now look to the Premier League as his next potential destination as Arsenal have been in contact with his agent in a bid to lure him to North London.

    Ajax star Lisandro Martinez has allegedly told his club that he wants to quit the club and move to the Premier League.

    Martinez is wanted by both Manchester United and Arsenal to bolster their backlines.

    But it is the United that appear to be leading the chase after offering just shy of £40million for the centre-back.

    Lisandro Martinez bidding war

    Manchester United are confident of beating Arsenal to signing Lisandro Martinez after meeting with Ajax chiefs.

    United have reportedly tabled a fee just shy of £40m for Martinez.

    The Dutch champs’ new director of football Klaas-Jan Huntelaar travelled to London on Saturday to meet with United reps, according to the Mirror.

    And after talks with Huntelaar, the Red Devils are said to be confident of beating the Gunners in the race to sign the centre-back.

    The Manchester giants have made a bid worth an initial £35.3m, with a further £4.3m available in add-ons.

    The total package works out at £39.6m, with the Amsterdam giants reportedly valuing the Argentina international at £43m.

    Martinez would rather reunite with former boss Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford than join the Gunners.

    According to The Athletic, United have “edged ahead as favourites” to land the 24-year-old for around £35m

    Arsenal insist on Milinkovic-Savic

    Arsenal, though, are still persistent in the transfer pursuit of Lazio star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

    The Gunners reportedly had a €55million (£47.2m) offer for Milinkovic-Savic rebuffed as the Serie A side wanted more cash.

    But the North Londoners are preparing to issue a new and improved bid for the midfielder, according to Il Messaggero.

    However, Arsenal are reluctant to depart with the €65m (£55.8m) Lazio president Claudio Lotito is demanding.

    Although the Gunners are said to be in constant contact with the Serbia international’s agent Mateja Kezman to try and get a deal done

    Arsenal prioritise Tielemans

    Arsenal are pressing ahead with plans to sign a new midfielder this summer.

    And the Gunners are prioritising Leicester star Youri Tielemans for the role ahead of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, according to Fabrizio Romano.

    That’s because Tielemans will cost the Gunners 40million less than Milinkovic-Savic.

    The Belgium international’s contract expires in 2023, which means the Foxes could be open to letting him go on the cheap now.
