Papers: Arsenal linked with Liverpool’s Moreno

Arsenal are interested in Liverpool left-back Alberto Moreno, according to the Daily Mirror.

Liverpool are said to be resigned to losing the Spain international when his contract runs out at the end of the season.

And the Mirror say this has alerted Arsenal, who are apparently among several clubs keen on signing him on a free transfer.

The other clubs are said to include Manchester United and Barcelona.

The Mirror say Gunners boss Unai Emery is an admirer of his fellow Spaniard, having worked with him at Sevilla, and would like to take him to the Emirates Stadium.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will open contract talks with Eden Hazard before the end of the month, according to the Daily Mail. 

It comes amid ongoing speculation over the future of the Belgian, whose current deal at Stamford Bridge runs until 2020.

He has recently spoken of his dilemma over whether to commit his long-term future to Chelsea by signing a new contract or leave the door open to a potential move to Real Madrid.

The Mail say Chelsea have been encouraged by Hazard seeming open to signing a new deal and that the club are hopeful he will accept an offer worth around £300,000 a week.

And Chelsea want Inter’s Mauro Icardi or AC Milan’s Patrick Cutrone to replace Alvaro Morata, The Sun claim.

The newspaper say Chelsea have lost patience with striker Morata and will look to make a signing when the transfer window reopens in January.

Icardi is said to be the club’s first-choice signing but it is claimed that Chelsea have been told he would cost £90m.

The Sun declare if a deal cannot be reached for Icardi then Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri “is ready to battle Tottenham for highly-rated Milan forward Cutrone”, who would apparently cost £25m.

The 20-year-old Cutrone, who has been linked with Spurs for some time, made his Italy debut in March.
