Transfer Gossip: Arsenal in pursuit of Rennes winger as Roma want Drinkwater
After impressing in both legs against Arsenal in the Europa League, the Gunners are reported to be chasing Ismaila Sarr while Claudio Ranieri is said to be looking to reunite with Danny Drinkwater at AS Roma.
According to GFFN, Arsenal have opened talks for Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr after last week's 3-1 defeat to the French side in the Europa League. The winger scored the third goal in the 3-1 win but they, however, could not hold on to the advantage as they went down 3-0 in the second leg and crushed out.
Claudio Ranieri is reported to be keen on a reunion with Danny Drinkwater at AS Roma according to the Sun with the midfielder struggling to get any game time at Chelsea. The pair won the English Premier League title back in 2016 with Drinkwater forming a formidable partnership with N'golo Kante.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Napoli are set to go head to head with Real Madrid for the signing of Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi. The Argentine has been an outcast at the club as he was stripped of his captaincy role and has not featured for the club for over a month now. The Spanish club are the favourites having bettered Napoli's reported contract offer of €9m a season plus €2m in bonuses. Juventus are also believed to be interested in the Argentine striker.
