Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the Fenerbahce attacking midfielder Sebastian Szymanski.

The 25-year-old playmaker has had an impressive season with the Turkish outfit and he scored 13 goals and picked up 19 assists in all competitions. He has a contract with Fenerbahce until 2027, but he could be on the move this summer.

According to a report from Aslinda, Tottenham are looking to follow up on their interest with an official proposal to sign the player. They could submit an offer of €20 million for the playmaker.

It is no secret that Tottenham need more quality and depth in the middle of the park and Szymanski would be a quality acquisition. He will add goals and creativity to the Tottenham midfield. Furthermore, he is at the peak of his powers and he could settle in quickly and make an instant impact at the north London club.

Szymanski might fancy Tottenham switch

The opportunity to play in the Premier League will be quite attractive for him and Spurs will be an exciting destination as well. They have an ambitious project and a quality set of players. The Poland international will certainly fancy his chances of doing well in the Premier League with Tottenham.

It remains to be seen whether Fenerbahce are willing to sanction his departure for €20 million. He has been a key player for them and they could look to demand a premium. He has a long-term contract with the club as well, and therefore, the Turkish outfit are under no pressure to sell him this summer. The only way Tottenham can secure his signature is if they can secure an agreement with the Turkish outfit.

It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few days.

According to a report from HITC, his performances for the Cherries have seen him linked with the summer move to Arsenal and Mikel Arteta’s side are looking to snap him up. The defender could be available for a fee of around £40 million and remains to be seen whether Arsenal are ready to pay up.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are not the only club keen on signing the Hungarian defender and the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have watched the 20-year-old this season as well. It remains to be seen where he ends up. The 20-year-old is certainly good enough to join the biggest clubs in the country and he has already proven himself in the Premier League with Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, Manchester United need to bring in an upgrade on Tyrell Malacia, who has barely featured last season. Kerkez is well-settled in the Premier League and he could be the ideal acquisition for the Red Devils.

Chelsea paid a substantial amount of money for Marc Cucurella, but the former Brighton defender has been quite underwhelming since his move to Stamford Bridge. The Blues need more quality and depth in that area and the 20-year-old Bournemouth star could compete with Ben Chilwell for the starting spot.

The opportunity to join some of the biggest clubs in the world will be quite attractive for the young defender, and it remains to be seen where he ends up. He must look to join a club where he will get regular first-team action. He cannot afford to sit on the bench at this stage of his career.

Juventus are hoping to keep him at the club as well and they have already presented the player with a proposal. However, the midfielder is yet to respond to their offer of around €7.5 to 8 million euros per year for the next two seasons. It is fair to assume that Liverpool will have to offer him more than that in order to get the deal done. It will be interesting to see if Liverpool are ready to break the bank for him. Rabiot is available on a free transfer and signing a player of his quality and experience for free would represent a major bargain.

It will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually. There is no doubt that he has a physical and technical attributes to thrive in both leagues and he could be an asset for the two clubs, especially on a free transfer.

Chelsea are keen on signing the Argentine defender Aaron Anselmino this summer.

According to a report from Calciomercato, they have now intensified contacts with the player’s representatives and they are ready to submit an offer for him.

The 18-year-old central defender is highly rated in South America and he has a bright future. He could develop into a key player for the Blues who are in need of defensive reinforcements. Chelsea have looked vulnerable in defence and they will have to tighten up at the back if they want to do well next year.

The Argentine club will not want to sell a prized prospect like him for a knockdown price and they could easily demand a premium. Anselmino has the potential to develop into a top class defender in the near future. The opportunity to move to Chelsea will be quite exciting for him, and he would get to test himself in the Premier League. Regular football at the highest level could help him develop further and fulfil his world class potential.

Chelsea are one of the wealthiest clubs in the world and they have the finances to pay a lucrative amount of money for the young defender. It will be interesting to see how much Boca Juniors are looking to recoup for his services.

The South American defender could be the ideal long-term replacement for Thiago Silva who left upon the expiry of his contract earlier this summer. The Brazilian was a key player for Chelsea and he will need to be replaced adequately.

Anselmino seems like the perfect fit for the Blues. He has been linked with other Premier League clubs as well and it remains to be seen qhether Chelsea can win the race for his signature.

Turkish outfit Galatasaray are keen on signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Manchester United this summer.

The 26-year-old right-back has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and he needs to leave in search of regular game time.

According to a report from beIN Sports Turkey, the 26-year-old defender is a priority target for Galatasaray and they have made great progress in negotiations for the defender. They are hoping to offer him a contract for four seasons and it remains to be seen whether they can secure an agreement with Manchester United first.

Galatasaray need to bring in defensive reinforcements and Wan-Bissaka should prove to be a quality acquisition for them. He has always been a reliable defender, but his attacking game leaves a lot to be desired.

Manchester United need a more balanced full-back and it will be interesting to see if they can bring in the right replacements this summer. They cannot afford to head into the new season with Diogo Dalot as the only right back at the club.

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Rennes winger Desire Doue.

Man United need more attacking depth

Arsenal legend Paul Merson snubs Henry and Ronaldo to name greatest PL player ever

Arsenal legend Paul Merson snubs Henry and Ronaldo to name greatest PL player ever

22/06/2024, England, Soccer, English Premier League Soccer, Article # 31828890

Arsenal legend Paul Merson has given his verdict on who the greatest Premier League player ever is.

The Gunners legend has played with some of the best players in the league during his time at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger’s star studded team had the likes of Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira, Dennis Bergkamp, Robert Pires and many other legends.

Merson has played against Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea legends, who have gone on to light up the Premier League for years.

When it comes to the greatest Premier League players ever, the names of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Steven Gerrard, Alan Shearer and Henry come to mind.

However, speaking to Jeff Stelling on the Football’s Greatest podcast, Merson did not name any of them as his greatest Premier League player ever.

He picked another Arsenal teammate, Bergkamp, as his number one pick with Henry just behind the Dutchman.

He said:

‘I’ve gone for Thierry Henry as No 2. You could easily make a case for him to be number one, in my opinion. Easily.

‘He is the only player I’ve ever seen in the Premier League look like a 20-year-old playing in an Under 12s league.

Thierry Henry Dennis Bergkamp Arsenal
Dennis Bergkamp was a huge success at Arsenal.


‘[But as No 1] I’ve gone for a player who is the best player I’ve ever played with by a million miles. I didn’t think a professional footballer could be that good. [It’s] Dennis Bergkamp.

‘He was unbelievable. I had a good brain, I could see things on a football pitch. I had good vision. But I’d never seen anything like him.

‘He had eyes in the back of his head. He was as cool as ice. You ask anyone who played with him… all the forwards wanted to played with him.

‘You talk to Thierry Henry… he’d say Dennis Bergkamp. Ian Wright [would say] Dennis Bergkamp.

‘If you made a run, he would find you. He just had everything.’

Bergkamp was a fan favourite at Arsenal

Manchester United and Liverpool fans might not like this pick from the Arsenal legend but there is a strong case for the former Dutch striker.

He won three Premier League titles during his time at Arsenal and mesmerised fans all over the country with his playing style and class on the pitch.

He might not be the most prolific goal scorer but the way he linked up with players, displayed delicate touches in his game and created chances for his teammates was hugely impressive.
