Morning, Arsenal fans
Marquinhos’ move to the Emirates has hit a shock stumbling block.
And Udinese defender Nahuel Molina is the new man on the Gunners’ radar.
It’s claimed Wolves already have a pre-contract agreement with Sao Paulo winger Marquinhos.
So Arsenal could face a tough legal battle to tie up what had seemed a straightforward £3million deal for the Brazilian, 19.
But the Gunners are rated amongst the frontrunners to sign Argentina star Molina.
Reports in Spain even suggest Arsenal are preparing an ‘important bid’ for the 24-year-old.
Udinese’s third-top Serie A scorer notched seven goals and five assists, mainly from the right of a three-man defence.
Atletico Madrid and Juventus are also keen on Molina.
The Gunners are also said to be jostling for Lens midfielder Cheick Doucoure.
Meanwhile, Arsenal as well as Barcelona are reportedly keen on Aston Villa midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka, 18.
Finally, Crystal Palace target Eddie Nketiah is tipped to U-turn and agree a new Gunners’ contract.
The 22-year-old bagged five goals in his last seven games.
