    MORNING, ARSENAL FANS

    Brighton are making it tough for the Gunners to land main target Ben White – while Mikel Arteta is duelling Real Madrid for striker Alexander Isak.

    That's the pick of this morning's transfer talk from around the Emirates, with Hector Bellerin, Martin Odegaard, Emile Smith Rowe and Folarin Balogun also in the spotlight.

    It's claimed Brighton are holding out for £50million PLUS add-ons for England centre-back White – following Arsenal's improved bid of £42m.

    Tottenham, Liverpool, PSG and Borussia Dortmund are also reportedly keen on the 23-year-old. 

    Meanwhile, Real Sociedad's Sweden star Alexander Isak is being increasingly linked with the Emirates, despite speculation he could stay in Spain with Real Madrid

    Juventus are said to be keen on a part-exchange involving Arsenal's 19-year-old frontman Folarin Balogun and Gunners' old boy Aaron Ramsey. 

    Full-back Bellerin is being monitored by Atletico Madrid, Villarreal and Inter Milan. Aston Villa are tipped to up an initial £25m offer for  Arsenal midfielder Emile Smith Rowe.

    Finally, Arsenal loan hit Martin Odegaard could be on his way out of Real Madrid after all.

    JUVE EYE GUNNERS' WONDERKID BALOGUN

    Arsenal wonderkid Folarin Balogun is reportedly wanted by Juventus in a transfer deal involving Aaron Ramsey.

    According to calciomercato.com, the Wales midfielder, 30, is desperate for a return to the Gunners.

    Ramsey has struggled for form in Italy, and the Serie A giants are said to desperate to get his £400,000-a-week salary off their wage bill.

    And that's encouraged Juventus to formulate a transfer plan to get rid of the Euro 2020 star.

    One player that they think highly of is Folarin Balogun, 19, who the Old Lady were linked with last season.

    The highly-rated youngster made his breakthrough in Mikel Arteta's side – scoring twice in the Europa League in the past campaign.

    And Juventus are said to want to include the striker in a deal that would take Ramsey back to North London.

    GUNNERS ON GAARD AGAIN?

    Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has hinted that Arsenal loanee Martin Odegaard could be allowed to leave the club this summer.

    Odegaard spent the second half of last season at the Emirates and put together a string of impressive performances that convinced manager Mikel Arteta to try and sign the playmaker in the summer.

    But Perez suggested the Norway international could be allowed to leave either via permanent transfer or another loan deal.

    The Real supremo said: “We have 35 players and can only register 25… [Dani] Ceballos, [Takefusa] Kubo, Odegaard, we can’t fit them all.

    “We’re talking with players and their agents. We have a lot of young players, if they can’t develop here they can go on loan and come back.”

    TOFFEES STEAL A MARCNH ON UTD AND ARSENAL TARGET

    Everton are in talks with Juventus to sign Manchester United and Arsenal target Merih Demiral, reports say.

    The Toffees have now been set an asking price for the defender they have long sought.

    A report from Italian outlet Tuttosport claims the Serie A outfit want €40million (£37.5m) for the centre-back.

    Everton were plotting a £26m move for Demiral in March, so owner Farhad Moshiri will have to spend more than he planned to get his man.

    Talks between the two clubs had reportedly taken place before Juventus decided to up their price.

    And Everton are not prepared to make a new bid until they appoint a manager.

    According to AS, Real are keen on Isak and the same goes for a number of Premier League sides, such as the Gunners.

    MAHREZ REVIEW

    Arsenal star Kieran Tierney has praised Manchester City ace Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to the Gunners.

    Reports have suggested that Mahrez could be leaving City as manager Pep Guardiola is raising funds for Tottenham superstar Harry Kane.

    COUTINHO SITUATION

    Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho has recently been linked with a move to Arsenal as well as Everton.

    According to Sport, however, Barca could have some trouble selling Coutinho in the summer transfer window.

    Thus, the Catalans haven't received any officials bid for the Brazil interntional

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to sign a top centre-back to partner up with Harry Kane at the back.

    According to Manchester Evening News, however, the Red Devils were not willing to meet his £50million asking price for White and are thus concentrating their efforts on other defensive targets.

    GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS,

    Kieran Tierney has signed a new FIVE-YEAR contract at Arsenal worth £110,000 a week.

    The Scotland defender, 24, joined the Gunners in the summer of 2019 in a £25million deal from Celtic.

    Despite being hampered by injuries, Tierney has quickly became an integral member of Mikel Arteta’s squad, playing 62 times at left-back, left-wing-back or even on the left of a central three.

    Emirates boss Arteta has expressed his delight at Tierney signing a long-term extension – believed to be worth £110,000 per week – saying: “This is great news for us.

    “As manager of the club, speaking on behalf of the coaching staff and the entire staff, it’s a pleasure to work with KT.

    “His quality, energy, commitment and professionalism, not only on matchdays, but every day in training are always at such a high level.

    “KT gives us so much extra strength both defensively and offensively and it’s great to know that he’ll be with us for the long term.

    “Since his move from Celtic, his work ethic and quality has ensured that he is already one of most exciting players in the Premier League and a hugely important part of our team, both on and off the pitch.

    “I know all the fans will join me, the players and staff in looking forward to seeing KT playing in an Arsenal shirt for a few more years.”

    Technical director Edu added: “We are so pleased to have agreed a new long-term deal with Kieran.

    “Anyone who has seen him play will recognise very quickly that he is a player of huge ability.

    “But I can tell you that he is also a player with a fantastic attitude and mentality.

    “Kieran’s new contract is not just about the present and next season, it’s with a long-term vision and Kieran being an integral part of the future of the club.”

    Elsewhere, William Saliba will MISS Arsenal’s pre-season this summer.

    The defender, 20, will instead be on international duty, after being called up to France’s 18-man squad for the Olympics in Japan.

    Les Bleus will kick off their campaign at Tokyo Stadium on July 22.

    And should they be successful, they will play the final at Yokohama Stadium on August 7.

    This means that Saliba may still be playing at the Olympics just SIX days before Arsenal get their Premier League campaign underway against Brentford.

    The call-up will be an honour for Saliba, but is the latest blow for an Arsenal career that has never really got going.

    LOVE TO SEA IT

    David Seaman would be delighted if Arsenal were to sign Ben White.

    Deals for young stars before they hit their peak are a must in the former goalkeeper’s eyes, who likened the deal to Arsene Wenger’s best signings.

    He stated on talkSPORT: “I think we’re going down that route of players where they have young, promising careers ahead of them.

    “The days of signing marquee players – that are right on it now – Arsenal will struggle with that as they’re not in Europe.

    “Arsenal are nowhere near [the Champions League] and they need to restructure their transfer policy.

    “Arsene Wenger used to pick out people and he’d sign them and we’d asked, ‘who’s that?’ Then they turned out to be Thierry Henry!”
