Arsenal make ‘Sterling and Mahrez enquiries’, Locatelli battle with Juventus, White ‘wants £40m Gunners transfer’


Juventus could beat Arsenal to Sassuolo ace Manuel Locatelli by offering £26million, plus Radu Dragusin.

Locatelli scored two goals in the 3-0 win over Switzerland in Group A, showcasing his attacking ability.

According to Goal, Juventus are readying a bid worth £26m plus Dragusin, hoping to persuade Sassuolo.

However, the midfielder, isn’t looking too much into the speculation.

Locatelli said: “[The transfer rumours are] just talk. I will decide after the European Championship. There’s such an important competition to play in, and I’m only focused on this.

“I rely on what happens on the pitch, the real things, everything else is just gossip, it’s useless to talk about it.”

Meanwhile, Brighton ace Ben White is keen to join Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners saw an opening bid for White, worth around £40m, rejected by the Seagulls but talks continue.

According to Goal, the north Londoners believe they have a good chance of landing the centre-back before the transfer window shuts.

It is believed that a bid in the region of £50m will be enough to tempt Brighton to sell the England international.

The 23-year-old is keen to join Arsenal, telling friends that he expects to make the move to the capital this summer.

Finally, the Gunners may have potentially suffered a blow in their reported interest for Manchester City star Raheem Sterling.

Sterling struggled for a place in City’s starting line-up last season and Pep Guardiola has reportedly deemed him surplus to requirements.

Arsenal appear to be monitoring the situation but the Citizens have other plans for the winger, it seems.

The Premier League champions are looking to swap him, Aymeric Laporte and Gabriel Jesus for Tottenham star Harry Kane, for whom they are also willing to pay a whopping £100m fee.
