All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours from across the British and foreign press on Sunday, May 28.
A report in the Sun on Sunday claims Arsenal and Chelsea will go head to head in a battle to sign £85m-rated Andrea Belotti from Torino in the summer transfer window.
The newspaper cites sources in Italy claiming the London duo, who met in Saturday’s FA Cup final, are ahead of Manchester United in the race.
Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi has reportedly claimed Arsenal turned down a £56m offer for the player in January.
Arsenal also are set to rival Manchester City in the race to sign Dinamo Zagreb starlet David Colina, according to the Sunday People.
The left-back does not turn 17 until July and has represented Croatia at Under-17 level.
Meanwhile, the future of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger dominates many of Sunday morning’s newspapers following Arsenal’s FA Cup triumph against Chelsea.
The Sunday Express suggests he will this week finally confirm that he is staying at Arsenal for the next two years.
Wenger insists an announcement will be made on Wednesday or Thursday this week following a board meeting on Tuesday – and has indicated he believes he is still the best man for the job.
“You can’t have 35 years at the top level if you’re not the right man to do the job,” Wenger said.
“I just want to do well for the club. It’s down to the board members. Am I the right man to take this club further? It’s not about popularity, it’s about competence.”
