What the papers say
Arsenal have been dealt a "hammer blow" in their pursuit of Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves, reports the Express. The paper, which cites Eurosport, says Manchester United have a transfer deal for the Portugal international "reasonably far down the line", which will crush the Gunners' hopes of bringing the 24-year-old to the Emirates as a replacement for Granit Xhana.
There may be some positive news for Arsenal, however, with Martin Odegaard reportedly unsettled at Real Madrid. The Mail quotes Spanish outlet Cadena SER as saying the 22-year-old midfielder appears "disconnected" at the Bernabeu, with the paper adding that Sky Sports have reported the Gunners still consider themselves in with a chance to tempt the Norway captain back to north London. Odegaard has spent almost all of his time since signing with the LaLiga club in 2015 out on loan, including last season at Arsenal where he impressed with his work rate and leadership.
