    Martinelli confirms intention to stay

    Gabriel Martinelli has seemingly dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal.

    The 20-year-old enjoyed an impressive breakthrough season in the Premier League, notching six goals and six assists in 29 appearances.

    His performances caught the eye of many clubs across Europe, and it was feared they could tempt the winger away after the Gunners missed out on Champions League football.

    However, in welcoming another young Brazilian to the club, he now appears to have indicated that his immediate future remains at the Emirates.

    Acknowledging the signing of Marquinhos, Martinelli wrote on his Instagram story: “Welcome brother, we’re together.”

    Spurs are confident that they will now agree personal terms with the Mali international, and he could complete a medical by the end of the week.

    Bissouma joined Brighton from Lille in 2018, and has gone on to make 124 appearances for the club.

    Nantes fancy Brice little earner

    Ligue 1 club Nantes have made an approach to sign Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Brice Samba.

    The Congolese stopper stunned the Premier League newcomers last week when it was revealed that he plans to leave the club.

    The 28-year-old was the star of Forest's play-off success, making a string of fine saves in the semi-final against Sheffield United before his penalty shootout heroics.

    However, Samba rejected the offer of a new contract at the City Ground, and hopes to return to France, where he has spent most of his career.

    Richarlison will cost Spurs £50m+

    Everton have told Tottenham that they will have to pay in excess of £50m if they want to sign Richarlison.

    That's according to The Telegraph, who report that Spurs have targeted the 25-year-old as the player they want to boost their forward line.

    The Brazilian played a key role in helping the Toffees beat the drop in the Premier League last season, and has two years remaining on his Goodison Park contract.

    In the circumstances, the Merseysiders believe they can slap the huge asking price on their star player.

    Antonio Conte's men are currently thought to be the only side that have made an approach for Richarlison.

    Breaking: Blackburn Rovers appoint Tomasson

    Championship club Blackburn Rovers have confirmed Jon Dahl Tomasson as their new head coach.

    The former Newcastle, AC Milan and Denmark striker moves to Ewood Park on a three-year contract.

    Tomasson replaces Tony Mowbray, who was told in April that he would be let go after five years in charge of the Lancashire outfit.

    The 45-year-old Dane arrives having previously coached Malmo, who he led to successive Swedish titles as well as the Champions League group stage.

    Speaking to the club's official website, Tomasson said: “I'm really proud and excited to be taking over as Head Coach of Blackburn Rovers – a club with a lot of tradition and also great ambition.

    “We have a young team here, and also a great academy, and the owners have a clear vision, which is to develop players and become a sustainable Premier League club over time, so I’m really happy to be involved in this exciting new chapter for the club."

    Ray-an light for the Blues

    Chelsea will move for Wolves defender Rayan Ait-Nouri once Marcos Alonso completes his move to Barcelona.

    The Blues have been keeping tabs on the French U21 star since it became apparent that the club would face a defensive exodus this summer.

    Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen have already confirmed their departures, and Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta could also be heading for the Stamford Bridge exit door.

    Alonso’s transfer would leave Thomas Tuchel with few options at left-back, particularly with Ben Chilwell having only just returned from an ACL injury.

    And journalist Alan Nixon believes Chelsea have earmarked £25m rated Ait-Nouri – although they are likely to face competition from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

    Leipzig want £100m for Nkunku

    RB Leipzig have slapped a £100m price tag on Christopher Nkunku to ward off interest from Europe's biggest clubs this summer, according to The Independent.

    The 24-year-old is in high demand after plundering 35 goals in all competitions last season for the German outfit, while weighing in with 19 assist for good measure.

    Manchester United are said to be extremely keen on the Frenchman, who won his sixth cap last night.

    However, Leipzig's extreme asking price may put off potential suitors for the Bundesliga's Player of the Year.

    The Red Devils are still keen on a forward after missing out on Darwin Nunez to rivals Liverpool.

    Aston Villa have ‘no intention’ of selling Danny Ings, report Sky Sports News.

    The 29-year-old striker has been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Leeds United since the end of the season.

    However, Steven Gerrard has dismissed the rumours, and indicated that Ings remains an integral part of his squad.

    Meanwhile, Robert Lewandowski is poised to put pen to paper on a £175,000-per-week deal at Barcelona.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, the 33-year-old will sign a three-year contract with the Catalans worth £27m.

    Paris Saint-Germain had threatened to hijack the deal at the eleventh hour, but the Polish superstar is said to be loyal to the LaLiga giants.

    Elsewhere, Premier League newcomers Bournemouth have contacted Liverpool about the possibility of taking Nat Phillips on loan for a second successive season.

    The south coast outfit brought in the centre-back back in January, and he ended up playing a key role as the Cherries finished second in the Championship behind Fulham.

    And now Scott Parker wants the 25-year-old to return to the Vitality to help them secure their status in the top-flight.

    It was initially thought that Liverpool may be willing to allow Phillips to depart permanently, but reports last week suggested those at Anfield still see him as a long-term replacement to Joel Matip.

    Finally, Marcos Alonso has reiterated his desire to leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

    Fabrizio Romano reports that the Spaniard is desperate to depart Chelsea in order to join Barcelona.

    The left-back has already agreed personal terms with the LaLiga giants, and it’s now up to the club to agree a fee with Chelsea.

    Nunez comparisons made

    Liverpool-bound striker Darwin Nunez is a mix of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, according to former Benfica team-mate Adel Taarabt.

    Taarabt told talkSPORT: “Darwin has a mix of Cavani and Suarez, he can jump, he can go behind, for me he’s a mix of both.

    “I mean 34 goals, six in the Champions League, two against Barcelona, Bayern Munich and two against Liverpool and he’s 22-years-old.

    “So the most important thing is he keeps his head and he’s focused and I think the only thing [problem] that could happen for him in Liverpool is the language barrier.”

    Last year, a clip emerged of the pair partying in Mykonos during their summer breaks.

    And Mahrez responded to the clip at the time with the comment: "Agent Mahrez on duty 🕵️🏻‍♂️😂😂😂."

    He then quickly followed that up by adding: "(just having fun calm down 😂💙)."
