Posted on June 21, 2018 by David Nugent

Young Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu has revealed that he would like to move to Arsenal. The 22-year-old has been linked with a £35million move to North London this summer.

However, the defender has stated that any deal depends on his German club Freiburg, who have yet to agree a deal with a club for the defender’s services.

Talking about his future, Soyuncu told Turkish media outlet Gunes: ‘Arsenal are an option & I want to go there. But I have 3 more years on my current contract and everything depends on the club [Freiburg],’

According to Sky Sports (and other outlets as well), Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that Lucas Torreira has left the club.

Torreira’s contract with the Italian club reportedly contains a £22million release clause, and Arsenal, reluctant to pay the whole sum up front, offered to pay an increased fee of £26.4million (€30million) in several installments instead.

Ferrero spoke live on Italian television and sad Torreira had left for €30million. He praised the club’s business sense as they signed the midfielder from Pescara in 2015 for just 10% of the sum they are set to cash in on his departure. After spending a season on loan back at Pescara, Torreira made a total of 74 appearances for Sampdoria and scored four goals along the way.

Prediction: Both teams to score

Best odds: 5/4

Bookmakers: Paddy Power and Ladbrokes

It’s a tough start for Egypt as they face Uruguay in their first game of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but it shouldn’t be too easy for the South-Americans either. It should be an interesting goalscorer contest between two players that earned high praise in a Liverpool shirt – Mohamed Salah and Luis Suarez. Of course, Suarez has been playing for Barcelona since his move to Catalonia in 2014.

Egypt

The Pharaohs didn’t show particularly great levels of form recently, winning none and losing three of their last five games.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have agreed a deal worth around €30m with Sampdoria to sign talented central midfielder Lucas Torreira. The report suggests that the Gunners will pay the fee in instalments. The Uruguayan starlet has a release clause of around £22million.

Torreira is just the sort of player that Arsenal now needs to be targeting, young up and coming players with big potential, while also adding quality experienced players.

An excellent midfield prospect

Arsenal have been missing a bit of bite in midfield in recent years. Swiss international arrived with a reputation for being feisty. However, that is often misplaced aggression and he has enjoyed mixed fortunes in north London.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Marseille central midfielder Morgan Sanson, as Gunners boss Unai Emery attempts to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Agent confirms interest from north London giants

Sanson’s agent Michael Manuelle has confirmed that both clubs are interested in signing the 23-year-old midfielder. Manuelle told Foot Mercato: “Tottenham really follow Morgan, Arsenal follow him too”.
