Arsenal's Pedri hopes dashed

Arsenal were linked with a shock move for Pedri in January, but his latest injury should end the Gunners' interest once and for all.

Given that the wonderkid can't stay fit, it really might be game over for him.

In positive news for Arsenal, they are on the verge of beating several Premier League rivals to the signature of a 16-year-old rising star.

Chelsea's summer plans

Habib Diallo, who has only scored once in the Saudi Pro League after netting 20 times in Ligue 1 last term, is posing a major threat to Chelsea's transfer plans.

The Blues are looking for a Raheem Sterling replacement and have seemingly found their next target in...the Championship.

Chelsea are also looking for a reinforcement at left-back and are competing with West Ham for a little-known English gem.

Marc Cucurella, meanwhile, will likely be sacrificed in the summer.

Man Utd eye new midfielder

Casemiro's days appear to be numbered and Man Utd are targeting Mandela Keita, who describes himself as a mix of Kante and Pogba.

Erik ten Hag's days could also be numbered and his comments after his side's loss to Man City should leave Red Devils fans fuming.

Moreover, the Dutchman is apparently being blamed for Man Utd's frequent injuries by some of his players.

Injuries aren't his only headache as loanee Hannibal Mejbri is barely playing at Sevilla. Fabrizio Romano has now revealed why that is the case.

Another loanee, Jadon Sancho, is prompting a major transfer rethink from Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The INEOS billionaire is set to implement a completely different transfer policy at Old Trafford.
