    He said: "Youri Tielemans has not given his word to any club, yet. It’s still open and he will decide at the right moment."

    Nou Camp Calling

    Barcelona are reportedly scouting Gabriel Martinelli at the World Cup with his Arsenal deal nearing its end.

    The La Liga giants are believed to be considering a move for the Brazilian as it would be hoped he could be bought at a cut-price deal.

    Martinelli's contract at the Emirates Stadium expires in 2024, meaning he would be able to leave the club for free in a year and a half.

    His three appearances at the World Cup have caught the eye of Barcelona, with the club labelling him as a "favourite" of the club's sporting department and coaching staff, according to Sport.

    The outlet has suggested that Martinelli will be watched closely by Barcelona as they consider making a move for him at the end of the season.

    Ready for Yu

    Arsenal are interested in re-signing USA's World Cup star Yunus Musah and sent scouts out to Qatar to watch him, according to reports.

    He was one of USA's best-performing players in Qatar as they drew with Wales and England and beat Iran to reach the last-16.

    But Musah's displays have not gone unnoticed as Fabrizio Romano claims Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta sent scouts out to the Middle East to watch their former player – with Inter Milan also keeping tabs on him.

    The transfer expert told CBS: "Yunus Musah is also in the list of Premier League clubs. Arsenal recently sent their scouts to monitor him, but there are also other Premier League giants well informed on the Valencia midfielder."

    Here to Stay

    Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that the new ownership was a big part of why he stayed put at Chelsea.

    The long-serving defender had been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona but instead signed a new two-year deal at Stamford Bridge.

    The full-back said: "At Chelsea I played less than 30 games [last season] and I was already a free agent. It had never happened to me in my life. The new owners arrived and showed me that they wanted me to stay.

    "London is my home and my children speak better English than Spanish. When I made the decision, I think Xavi understood. If things are clear, they are understood.

    "Top clubs are informed about him but Josko has a long-term contract in Leipzig and he's happy there."
