Mertens ‘evaluating’ offer

Arsenal have reportedly made an approach to Dries Mertens about the possibility of signing him as a free agent in the summer, and the striker is said to be considering it.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere del Mezzogiorno, Napoli have resigned to losing the forward at the end of the season with his contract running down.

And the report states there has been an approach by both West Ham and Arsenal.

Mertens is said to have rejected an offer from the Hammers but Arsenal have been handed some promising news with the forward thinking about a move to the Emirates.

Lacazette ‘likes’ Kurzawa approach

Alexandre Lacazette has apparently given his endorsement to reports Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Layvin Kurzawa from Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal aren’t particularly lacking at left-back with both Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney in the squad, but it appears Mikel Arteta is strongly interested in signing Kurzawa.

The 27-year-old has only started seven Ligue 1 games for the French giants this campaign and is out of contract at the end of the season.
