Wednesday 7am Transfer Live: Dybala to Chelsea, Aguero, £35m for a wonderkid, Zaha and more

Wednesday Morning transfer rumours and latest updates for some clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal and others as they are ready for the summer transfer window to open.

Report: Chelsea, Manchester United to battle for Paulo Dybala this summer

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United reportedly join Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala this summer.

Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester United have reportedly joined Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Juventus forward Paulo Dybala this summer.

The 27-year-old’s future with the Serie A giants is in doubt as they are yet to negotiate a new deal with the player, who will see his contract expire at the end of next season.

According to Tuttosport, Chelsea and United are both monitoring Dybala’s situation and are prepared to make a move for him this summer if they are made aware of his availability.

Man United eager to sign 28-year-old Premier League goalkeeper

Man United are reportedly keen on re-signing their former shot-stopper Sam Johnstone if Dean Henderson or David de Gea leave the Theatre of Dreams this summer. England international came through Red Devils academy but failed to make a single first-team appearance for the club and after multiple loan moves, was sold to West Brom in 2018.

Sam is now impressing for the relegation-threatened Baggies with his form earning him a maiden senior England call-up for March’s World Cup qualifiers. Red Devils two primary stoppers, David De Gea and Henderson, have been battling to be the Norwegian manager’s No.1 this campaign, with the latter currently occupying the spot.

Arsenal linked with£35m move to sign Fluminense starlet

Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Fluminese star Matheus Martinelli regarding a £35 million summer transfer, according to reports.

Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte state the Gunners have been tracking the 19-year-old midfielder for the last few months.

Arsenal have been impressed by what they have seen so far from the attacking star – no relation to the 2019 acquisition Gabriel Martinelli.

And now Emirates senior figures are set to make a move for the in-demand star who has a £35m exit clause in his contract.

Martinelli only made his debut in the winter of 2020, but has already scored three times in 11 matches, impressing scouts across the globe.

However, it’s reported Arsenal will not launch a move for the No10 should they manage to renew Martin Odegaard’s loan deal or make it permanent.

Arsenal closely monitoring No.11 Ivory Coast international

The London club have rekindled their interest in Wilfried Zaha ahead of the summer transfer window as the Spanish boss continues his search for offensive reinforcements. Ivory Coast international has been favoured to leave Selhurst Park after the end of the campaign, with the Eagles now set to cash in on him.

Wilfried, a self-confessed Gunners supporter, was close to securing a move to Arsenal back in the summer of 2019. However, a transfer did not materialise as Crystal Palace stuck true to their hefty valuation of Zaha.

It led to Arsenal eventually settling for an alternative in Nicolas Pepe, with the move being sanctioned through various installments. Pepe’s move to Arsenal, though, has not quite worked out for the Gunners, with the 28-year-old forward often struggling with a lack of form and consistency.

The Ivorian forward has seemingly settled in with the pace of English football, but there remains a lack of temperament as well as the confidence that has ultimately stifled his progress in north London

Liverpool are desperate to sign 18-year-old Spain international

Barcelona are taking steps to secure the long-term future of Pedri. The 18-year-old playmaker is being tailed by the Merseyside giants over a potential move in the summer transfer window, with his current contract with Barca have a £70m release clause.

Pedri arrived at Camp Nou from Las Palmas last summer after the deal between the two teams had initially been agreed on a year before. The switch to Barcelona has ended up working wonders for La Liga giants as well as Spain international, who took no time to establish himself as a pivotal player in Ronald Koeman’s side.

In fact, the Spanish attacker, who has 3 goals and 6 assists in 44 games across all tournaments for the Blaugrana this term, has missed only one game all campaign, illustrating his importance for Barcelona despite his nascent age of 18.

Pedri’s progress, though, has certainly not gone unnoticed, with the Reds keeping a watchful eye on him over the course of the season.

Barcelona reportedly set to offer contract for Juventus transfer target –

As soon as Manchester City announced the departure of their all-time goalscorer Sergio Aguero, all sort of speculations arose regarding his future.

As expected, Juventus were quickly considered among the potential suitors of the Argentine, considering the fact that the management has become specialized in signing glamorous free agents.

The 32-year-old could in fact be replacement for one of the current Juventus forwards, as Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata all face uncertain futures at the club for different reasons.

Nonetheless, the Old Lady could be left behind, as another major European club could pounce on the situation.

According to Spanish newspaper Sport (via TuttoJuve), Barcelona are set to make an offer for the former Atletico Madrid man
