Hello guys and welcome to my latest Daily Briefing! Thanks for reading, and hope you enjoy today’s round-up :-)
Today’s top stories:
When Chelsea will make a decision on Denis Zakaria
Suitors for Arsenal duo Folarin Balogun and Reiss Nelson
Plus more from Man Utd, Barcelona and Spurs
AC Milan are not negotiating for Folarin Balogun now. For sure they will go for a striker in the summer but they don’t decide in February or March, it will be a long process. There are clubs in England, France and Germany monitoring him, he’s really appreciated - he just needed to be a key player and play every single game, congrats to Arsenal and to him for picking Reims. Arsenal will make a decision at the end of the season.
AC Milan director Paolo Maldini on Rafael Leao contract expiring in 2024: “We are now working on Leao new deal. We’re at the same point, it’s not the right moment to think about signing. There are no meetings scheduled, but it could easily take place with a videocall.”
A frustrating result for Arsenal yesterday, but Leandro Trossard scored his first goal for the Gunners just four minutes after being subbed on against Brentford. Arsenal invested £21m plus £5m add ons to sign Trossard in January. The Belgian now has eight Premier League goals this season.
Two Premier League clubs and also two or three clubs abroad are exploring the conditions of Reiss Nelson potential deal as his contract expires in the summer. I say potential as he’d love to stay at Arsenal but there is no proposal from the club to extend the contract yet; Arsenal have to decide, not Nelson.
