Arsenal are eyeing up a potential move for the Barcelona winger Ansu Fati. According to a report from Cadena Cope, Arsenal have contacted the player’s agent Jorge Mendes regarding a summer transfer and they have been encouraged by the player’s entourage to make a move. It will be interesting to see if Arsenal decide to follow up on their interest with a concrete proposal for the 20-year-old winger in the coming months. Fati has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona and it seems that he might not be a key part of Xavi Hernandez’s first-team plans at the Spanish club. The 20-year-old is a w ..read more

Chelsea striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been branded a “band aid” signing by the Blues that doesn’t really fit into their overall transfer strategy. Since taking over at Stamford Bridge, Todd Boehly has mainly prioritised the signings of some of the finest young talents in world football, such as Enzo Fernandez, Andrey Santos, Mykhaylo Mudryk and Benoit Badiashile. Aubameyang, by contrast, was a short-term addition to the squad to deal with the issues the club had up front at the time, according to Ben Jacobs in his exclusive CaughtOffside column.

The club’s season hinges entirely on the Champions League and with a Last 16 knockout tie against defending champions Real Madrid coming up, it seems the odds are very much stacked against Klopp. Consequently, now under pressure at Anfield, there have been suggestions that the German could leave his role and take up another high-profile job.
