Arsenal to rival Liverpool for Premier League midfielder

  Arsenal to rival Liverpool for Premier League midfielder Arsenal are reportedly still keeping tabs on Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina. It was claimed in the summer that Arsene Wenger rejected recommendations from Arsenal’s scouts regarding a potential move for Lemina. The Gabonese international proceeded to sign for Southampton from Juventus and has been impressive since his arrival in England. Lemina has been a bright spark in what has been a hugely uninspiring season for Southampton. He has demonstrated his quality in the middle and appears to have attracted the attention of top clubs in the Premier League. It is, in fact, claimed by French news outlet L’Equipe that Liverpool are hot on the trail of Lemina. However, Arsenal are claimed to still be holding out hope that they can secure his signature. Southampton are in serious danger of being relegated to the Championship this season and if this does happen, Lemina is likely to be on the move. However if the Saints do drop down, competition will be fierce for Lemina.

West Ham sent scouts to watch long-term target William Carvalho at the weekend as they look to improve their options at the end of the season as reported by Sport Witness.

Carvalho earned lots of praise for his performance in the game between Sporting and rivals Porto last week and is set to be the top target for the club in the summer after they infamously missed out on his signature last summer.

Sporting ended up losing the match 2-1 to Porto but the performance of Carvalho is one which has alerted those at West Ham that they want to sign him after missing out on him in the last couple of windows. This is not the first time West Ham have made checks on Carvalho this season after also scouting him in another game last month.

Man Utd join Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham in race to sign 7-goal midfielder valued at £20m

  Man Utd join Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham in race to sign 7-goal midfielder valued at £20m Arsenal’s midfield has been criticised for being too weak in recent seasons and the potential addition of Abdoulaye Doucoure from Watford would go a long way towards rectifying that. Doucoure himself recently hinted that a summer transfer was on the cards amid interest from the Gunners but after an impressive season with Watford, a number of top six clubs are eyeing a summer swoop for the Frenchman. Reports suggest that Manchester United have joined the race to sign Doucoure and had scouts watch him in action during Watford’s recent win over West Brom. Manchester United are set to lose both Michael Carrick and Marouane Fellaini in the summer and will be short of bodies in midfield, with Doucoure targeted as a potential recruit. Despite playing primarily as a robust, all-action midfielder, the 25-year-old has chipped in with seven goals and three assists in the Premier League as the Hornets hope for a top half finish this campaign. Both Tottenham and Liverpool are also interested in signing Doucoure who is valued at £20m by Watford.

Arsenal and Everton fighting for Portuguese talent .
Arsenal are said to be keeping tabs on the progress of promising Porto defender Diogo Leite. According to Portuguese news outlet Record, the Gunners’ scouts were among those in attendance as Porto took on Tottenham Hotspur in a UEFA Youth League contest. Leite has been catching the eye of many in Portugal as he continues to establish himself as one of Porto’s most promising young players. Arsenal watched on as Leite netted in his side’s match against Spurs, which will have only further convinced them of the youngster’s clear talent and potential. Although, it would seemingly require a sizable offer to persuade Porto to part company with one of their brightest prospects. Arsenal’s apparent admiration of Leite is also made difficult as a result of the 19-year-old penning a contract extension until 2021 in recent times. The Gunners will be rivalled in their pursuit of Leite by Everton, though, who also sent scouts to watch the youngster in action.
