Riyad Mahrez and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could make big-money moves on transfer deadline day.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger accepts getting a deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pushed through ahead of the transfer deadline was always likely to prove “complicated”.
Press Association Sport understands there is an agreement in principle between Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund for the Gabon forward, who was widely reported to have travelled to London on Tuesday to finalise a potential £60million switch.
However, there is the added issue of Dortmund first seeking assurances over a replacement – which could well be Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea, themselves looking to bring in Gunners forward Olivier Giroud.
Manchester City were extremely busy on Tuesday, signing defender Aymeric Laportefrom Athletic Bilbao in a reported £57million deal before bringing in English midfielder Jack Harrison from sister club New York City.
City could also make a deadline-day transfer raid for Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez but look certain to have to stump up another club-record fee.
The Algeria international is understood to have been earmarked as a potential late target for the Premier League leaders after the blow of losing Leroy Sane to injury.
So to recap, Spurs are run by Theresa May and successful clubs with genuine ambition are run by Donald J Trump.
