Arsene Wenger has identified M’Baye Niang as the man he wants to sign should Alexis Sanchez leave Arsenal this summer, according to reports. Sanchez is reportedly unsettled at the Emirates Stadium and could be on his way out of the club as talks over a new contract continue. His current deal expires at the end of next season. According to Mundo Deportivo, Arsenal is already planning for Sanchez’s departure and sees 22-year-old Niang, who plays for AC Milan, as his replacement.
Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini has been given a two-match ban for insulting match officials and Torino's Sinisa Mihajlovic has been fined for breaking an interview backdrop screen, Serie A's disciplinary tribunal said on Tuesday. Gasperini was sent off during his side's 2-1 defeat at Lazio after he "blatantly and repeatedly protested against a refereeing decision, uttering seriously insulting expressions towards the fourth official", the tribunal said in a statement. After he was dismissed in Sunday's match, Gasperini "uttered more gravely offensive remarks" towards the referee.
Ajax are trying to bring Gerard Deulofeu to the Amsterdam ArenA and are in talks with Everton over the forward. The out-of-favour winger looked to be on his way to AC Milan but the Eredivisie giants, who Everton boss Ronald Koeman played for and managed, seem to have stolen a march on Vincenzo Montella's men. Everton rejected a loan offer for Deulofeu from Milan earlier this month but the club's chief executive Adriano Galliani is still trying to 'find a solution' with the Goodison Park hierarchy.
