Arsenal and Liverpool keen on Butland
Premier League giants Liverpool and Arsenal are thought to be keen on a move for the safe hand in the summer transfer window.
The England international shot-stopper could be getting prepared to represent his National team at this summer FIFA World Cup, with the first choice gloves still up for grabs.
The shot-stopper has kept four clean sheets in the League for Stoke City this campaign, who have been struggling seriously.
They currently occupy the 19th position on the log and are on course to go down to the English Championship when the season ends.
There were media reports that the goalie was prepared to force a move to the Emirates Stadium, but that seems to be far from the truth.
Butland is up against Everton’s Jordan Pickford for the Three Lions glove in putting pressure on West Ham loanee Joe Hart, who has lost his starting spot at the London club.
England boss Gareth Southgate might hand some clue into his thoughts when the Three Lions return to action with friendly matches against Netherlands and the Azzurri of Italy next month.
Finally Arsenal star set to bid farewell
Arsenal are set to part ways with their third choice goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
The reports claim that he is being linked with a move to Leeds United as they are desperate to land him as their first choice goalkeeper.
Although, the Yorkshire side do not have Emiliano Martinez as their only option as they seek to lure former Real Madrid goalkeeper Kiko Casilla as they are desperate to land any of the available options and for the best fee.
However, Emiliano Martinez became the third choice at the club following the loan move of David Ospina and the coming of Bernd Leno from German Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.
The German goalkeeper ended up becoming the first choice ahead of experienced former Chelsea Petr Cech who is now second in the ranking.
However, the Gunners are still battling to find their feet in the goalkeeping department with pundits having the opinion that the former Chelsea stopper remains the best that the club have got at the moment
The North London side have not been having it all good in recent time as they have not had a consistent result in their last five games.
Arsenal make interest in Ligue 1 star known
The North London outfit Arsenal have made it clear that they do not have enough funds to sign players in this winter transfer window but will rather have players join on loan with the hope of finalizing a deal in the coming winter transfer window.
Despite that, Gunners manager Unai Emery is still making efforts to see how he can convince the club for a deal as he makes his interest in French Ligue 1 outfit Rennes star Ismaila Sarr known.
The North London boss is desperate to land the star player before the transfer window runs out as he wishes to close the gap between his side and the West London outfit Chelsea, who are in the fourth position.
The Spanish boss has lost England International Danny Welbeck which is the reason why he is keen on the signature of the French Ligue 1 player.
However, the North London side have their chances for a top four finish limited after their defeat to West Ham United in the last Premier League game.
So far this season, Ismaila Sarr has scored 8 goals in 24 games and has shown the potential that he can improve and impress at the English league.
Arsenal can’t fund Denis Suarez and Yannick Carrasco’s permanent deal!
Arsenal are interested in Yannick Carrasco’s services but the club is financially disabled to finalize their move for the Belgian star.
According to the Sun, Arsenal manager Unai Emery is unhappy with his team’s current run of results and he’s told his employers to get him some world-class players who would help bolster every department of his team, especially at the back.
Despite the manager’s call for a new addition, it’s believed that Sven Mislintant might fail to meet his demands as he’s struggling to raise fund for any deal at the ongoing transfer window.
Instead, the club’s hierarchy is set to be engaged in many loan deals. The Sun claimed that Barcelona’s want-away midfielder Denis Suarez is the Gunners main target but the North London club are only planning a six-month loan deal.
As for Carrasco, the Dalian Yifang’s playmaker/ winger is ready to join the Gunners as revealed by his wife but the Premier League outfits are equally set to offer him a six-month loan deal.
Meanwhile, latest rumors suggest that Emery is willing to help the club raise money as he has offered Mesut Ozil to two Serie A sides Juventus and AC Milan.
The former Sevilla and Paris St-German boss isn’t contended with the German’s work-rate on the field of play, hence, he wants to cash-in on his signature before the end of the January transfer market.
Should he successfully sanction the player’s sale to any of the two clubs, The Mirror said he will invest the money realized in Carrasco’s signature.

English Premier League side Arsenal are reported to be close to agreeing on a deal with Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona over a deal for Denis Suarez.
