Arsenal and Barcelona join Bayern in race to sign French striker, Chelsea held talks to sign him

  Arsenal and Barcelona join Bayern in race to sign French striker, Chelsea held talks to sign him Nabil Fekir is one Lyon attacker that Arsenal want to sign in order to link up again with former teammate Alexandre Lacazette, but the Gunners are being linked with a second. The Guardian note that both Arsenal and Barcelona are interested in signing highly-rated Lyon teenager Willem Geubbels in the summer following a breakthrough campaign in France. Geubbels made his first-team debut for Lyon in September 2017 and has made four appearances for the club this season and could be on the move in the summer. With his contract expiring after this season, Lyon were hoping to persuade the 16-year-old to sign a first professional contract with the club but it seems as if he will leave. Both Bayern Munich and Chelsea reportedly held talks to sign the attacker during the January transfer window and both Liverpool and Tottenham were linked with a move for the France U17 international earlier in January but now Arsenal and Barcelona have joined the race.

Liverpool are reportedly leading the race to sign Deportivo La Coruna striker Pinchi this summer. The 22-year-old has been deemed surplus to requirements by Deportivo so far this season, failing to make a single appearance for the senior side and instead turning out for the club's B team .

Liverpool are closing on deal to sign Deportivo La Coruna wide man Pinchi , according to reports in the Sun. Manchester United and Tottenham have also shown interest in the youngster, who has been playing for Deportivo ’s B Team .

Having lost Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona in the January transfer window, you could argue that Liverpool are short of options in the wide areas in attack and the Reds have been linked with a move for Deportivo youngster Pinchi.

The 22-year-old is yet to make his debut for the senior Deportivo side in La Liga but is the star man of their B team competing in the Segunda División B Group 1 in Spain’s third tier.

Pinchi is a native of A Coruna and came through the ranks at Deportivo, but his form this season, netting six goals in 22 appearances thus far, has alerted a number of top European clubs, with considerable interest coming from the Premier League.

His contract with Deportivo expires in the summer and the rapid winger is a reported target for Liverpool, according to the Guardian, who note the Reds have moved ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham in the race to secure his signature.

Real Madrid join race to sign Emre Can .
With Emre Can’s contract at Liverpool running down, it seems certain that he’ll be leaving the club this summer. Italian giants Juventus are the favourites to sign the German, but reports from Italy suggest that they’ll face competition from Real Madrid. Can has reportedly put talks about his future on the back burner until the end of the season as he wants to fully focus on helping Liverpool secure a top four place and win the Champions League, but the speculation about where he’ll be playing next year is seemingly never-ending. The 24-year-old is free to speak to any foreign clubs about a possible summer move, and his representatives have already been contacted by Juventus, who’ve made their desire to sign him public. Liverpool have still not given up hope of keeping Can long-term, but with Juventus and Madrid now sniffing around, they face a battle to keep hold of him past this season.
