ARSENAL REMAIN INTERESTED IN TRANSFER DEAL FOR NORWICH CITY STAR, WOULD COST £30M+

Norwich City could lose Emi Buendia this summer with Premier League giants Arsenal remaining interested in the midfielder, sources close to the situation have exclusively confirmed to Football League World.
The 24-year-old’s performances this season and the previous one in the Premier League for Norwich have gained him a lot of attention, especially from Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta’s side were linked throughout the January transfer window, but nothing ever materialised and Norwich were adamant that he would not be leaving Carrow Road.

A source close to Football League World believes that the Gunners are staying in touch with Norwich in terms of a move for the Argentinian – and the Canaries may even drop their price-tag if Buendia wants to leave.

Liverpool could sign Nuno Mendes as Sporting Lisbon willing to sell

According to fresh reports from Portugal, Liverpool could be given the chance to finally sign Sporting Lisbon youngster, Nuno Mendes, in the summer transfer window.

O’Jogo claims that Sporting are now willing to sell one of their prized assets, who has a release clause believed to be around the £66m mark.

Mendes has been on the radar of the Reds for some time now. The 18-year-old left-back is clearly one of the best talents on the continent for his age. A number of clubs are said to have watched him, with Leicester and Arsenal among them.

Any move by Liverpool, then, would see them usurp former boss Brendan Rodgers in the race for Mendes. It was claimed in November that Rodgers was eyeing Mendes as a potential long-term replacement for Ben Chilwell.
