Arsenal linked with Alvaro Morata

Juventus’ hesitancy in paying £ 29million to keep Alvaro Morata could lead to Arsenal swooping for the Spanish striker.

Tottenham transfer guide

Evening Standard Spurs reporter Dan Kilpatrick has delivered his guide to Tottenham’s summer activity …

“Spurs are set to turn their attentions to a center-half. Conte admires Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni and Spurs are confident of being able to compete with Chelsea for Gleison Bremer.

“Their wing-back targets include Europa League winner Filip Kostic and Inter Milan veteran Ivan Perisic, while Yannick Carrasco of Atletico Madrid has also been mentioned.

“Conte likes the profile of Chelsea’s Jorginho and could look for a similar player in midfield, while Leicester Youri Tielemans has been linked. Gabriel Jesus’s ability to play out wide or through the middle makes him a potentially attractive option, although Spurs would face competition from Arsenal for the Man City forward. ”
