Chelsea eye Brighton ace, Arsenal stance on midfielder emerges and Tottenham Hotspur man wanted.

Arsenal lead the way at the top of the Premier League table during the World Cup break. Chelsea have made a slow start to the season and will be hoping to hit form when they return.

Tottenham Hotspur sit in 4th position. Here is a look at some of the latest news regarding the trio...

Arsenal

Arsenal apparently remain interested in signing Palmeiras midfielder Danilo. The 21-year-old is being tipped for a bright future in the game. According to reporter Fabrizio Romano in his CaughtOffside column, he is still on the Gunners’ ‘list’:

“Danilo is one of the players on Arsenal’s list since July, he’s appreciated and the relationship with his agents is very good, for sure; but at the moment there are still no changes in the negotiation with Palmeiras or the player’s side. I think we’ll have to wait bit longer to find out Arsenal’s next moves.”

Chelsea

Chelsea have reportedly opened preliminary ‘talks’ with Brighton and Hove Albion winger Leandro Trossard, according to a report by Football Insider. The winger played under the Blues’ boss at the AMEX Stadium and they could reunite at Stamford Bridge. He played for Belgium yesterday as they edged past Canada 1-0 in Qatar.

Spurs

Manchester United are said to have identified Spurs’ Richarlison as a potential target, as per Fichajes. The attacker only made the move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last summer from fellow top flight club Everton. However, United are believed to see him as a possible replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
