Despite recent reports to the contrary Arsenal have yet to make an approach for Belgian starlet Michy Batshuayi.
The 20-year-old striking powerhouse has banged in 12 goals in 19 league games for Standard Liege this season and has also been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund.
He recently admitted that playing for Arsenal or the Bundesliga outfit would be a ‘dream’ however, Standard club representative Katrien Meire has denied anything official from the Premier League for their star player:
"Interest of Italian clubs? Some intermediaries have asked. Nobody from the Gunners has talked to us - they are just rumours."
Batshuayi is valued at around £4.5 million.
His agent, Jose Medina, has also been speaking about the player’s future. When quizzed on whether a move to Anderlecht was on the cards, and whether a release clause was in his current deal, he responded:
"Oh, clause or no clause: that's not the point. Michy thinks at present only to football and is not concerned with a transfer himself.”
Any hope of signing Luis Suarez is dead - as the Liverpool striker signed a new deal at Anfield.
The Uruguayan was targeted by Arsenal in the summer - and as he seeked Champions League football, was keen on the switch.
However Liverpool did not budge and Suarez has now signed a new four-year-deal, which will see his wages rise to a club record £200k-a-week.
“I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible."
"Presently I want to stay with Real Madrid and win the 'Décima' (10th European Cup). I belong to Real Madrid, it's where I have always been, and what I want is to stay and win more leagues."
Casillas is about to become a father for the first time in two weeks and says assurances over his place in the Spanish national team is not causing him worry enough to want a move.
