the Daily Briefing - Arsenal need to move fast for €65m star, Chelsea in the race for 16-year-old sensation, and more

My exclusive transfer round-up, featuring major updates on Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and more.

Good morning guys and welcome to today’s Daily Briefing - thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! :-)

Today’s top stories:

AC Milan

I’m aware there’s already some speculation about the future of Charles De Ketelaere, who only joined AC Milan from Club Brugge in the summer.

He has admittedly been a bit slow to get going, but this is because Milan, Serie A and that level is not the same as Belgian football... so I think it’s normal. All the links I’m seeing are not true because he will stay at AC Milan and they trust him as top player for the future after investing almost €35m on him.

📰 AC Milan are keen to re-open contract talks with Rafael Leao amid speculation linking him with a move away, and with his current deal expiring in 2024 (Calciomercato)


For sure Arsenal remain interested in Mykhaylo Mudryk, they are following him for a long time but there's still nothing decided. Shakhtar Donetsk want more than €60-65m to sell him now and it's not easy. The race is open, if Arsenal really want him they have to move fast.

As I said a few days ago, Arsenal are also keeping an eye on Facundo Torres. They have a few options they like in this position but there is nothing advanced for the moment.

💬 Would you like to see Mudryk or Torres at Arsenal? Or should they focus on signing a new defensive midfielder? Give me your thoughts in the comments!

Atletico Madrid

Despite what you might have heard about Joao Felix being on the market, I’m still told Atletico Madrid are trying to protect the player and they want to trust him for the future.

The situation with Diego Simeone is not easy, so if they will receive a really important bid it could change; but there are still no official proposals.

Personally, I think he deserves to play always as starter to prove himself at the best level, this is why it's not working with Atletico as of now.
