Transfer news & rumours LIVE: Arteta's Arsenal eye Isak and Olise in £165m summer splurge

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a £165 million double swoop for Newcastle United's Alexander Isak and Crystal Palace's Michael Olise this summer.

According to The Guardian, Newcastle striker Isak is one of the Gunners' 'primary targets' but he would cost £100m ($124m), and Palace winger Olise has a £65m ($80.8m) price tag. The former has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season whereas the latter has found the net six times and bagged three assists in an injury-hit campaign. The Mirror adds that the north London side are also keeping tabs on Sporting Lisbon forward Viktor Gyokeres and RB Leipzig front man Benjamin Sesko, while Wolves wideman Pedro Neto and Athletic Bilbao's Nico Williams are also on their radar.

Liverpool and Man Utd interested in Barca's Mikayil Faye

Liverpool and Manchester United are readying to battle for Barcelona wonderkid Mikayil Faye but the Catalans are looking to keep him at the club.

Barca Atletic have been flying this season and look likely to challenge for promotion this season and Faye has been one of the players to have caught the eyes of scouts around the world. As such, the Premier League duo are looking to bring in the Senegalese defender this summer as per Mundo Deportivo [via Sports Witness].

Arsenal set to step up interest in Leipzig's Benjamin Sesko

Arsenal are reportedly stepping up their interest in RB Leipzig forward Benjamin Sesko amid rival interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.

The Gunners have been linked with the 20-year-old for a couple of months now, with the Slovenia international understood to have a £42.5 million ($53m) release clause. Following the north London outfit's Champions League exit on Wednesday, the Evening Standard claims manager Mikel Arteta wants to add more 'firepower' to his squad. However, United and Chelsea are also keen on recruiting the 6ft 5in forward - who has scored 13 goals this season.

Guler wants to fight for his place at Real Madrid

Amid speculation surrounding his future, Arda Guler has affirmed his commitment to Real Madrid for the upcoming season, dismissing rumours of a potential departure.

A report from Estadio Deportivo suggests that despite experiencing a lack of playing time, the 19-year-old midfielder is determined to stay at Los Blancos. Since his €20 million move from Fenerbahce last summer, Guler has seen minimal action on the pitch, accumulating just 98 minutes of game time with Real Madrid. This has prompted rumors of interest from Sevilla, who reportedly reached out to Guler's representatives with a proposal for the 2024-25 season.

However, Guler remains steadfast in his decision to remain at Real Madrid, aiming to solidify his spot in the squad and contribute to the team's success in the upcoming campaign.

Toney wants his wages to be more than Fernandes at Man Utd

Ivan Toney has reportedly demanded a staggering salary surpassing that of the club's captain, Bruno Fernandes, according to The Sun.

His anticipated weekly wages of £250,000 would not only make him one of the highest-paid players at United but also see him surpass Fernandes who is at £240,000. If United can orchestrate a mass player exodus this summer as part of their restructuring plans, they might find themselves in a favourable position to accommodate Toney's hefty salary demands while optimizing their wage bill.
