Paper round-up: Arsenal linked with Silva, Spurs reportedly take keeper on trial

Arsenal are watching Porto striker Andre Silva, it is claimed.

The Daily Express reckon the Gunners and Manchester United had scouts watching the 21-year-old in action in Porto’s Champions League match against Juventus.

The Daily Mirror reports that Arsenal star Santi Cazorla will miss the rest of the campaign and is targeting a return to action for the start of next season.

The Mirror adds that there is “no question” of Cazorla leaving despite reports of interest from various clubs.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will reject a potential big-money offer to manage in China if he leaves the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

Wenger would reportedly prefer to manage another top European club. Paris St-Germain and Barcelona are touted as possible options for the Frenchman.

Barcelona are interested in Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, again according to the Mail.

The Mail also reports that Tottenham have taken teenage Dutch goalkeeper Nick Weegink on trial.

The 15-year-old previously played for Twente’s academy and is currently with fourth-tier side ATC’65.

Meanwhile, Speculation continues over the futures of a number of Chelsea players.

Real Madrid continue to be linked with Eden Hazard, with the Daily Express picking up on more reports that the La Liga club are planning to make a move for him in the summer.

The Daily Star have picked up on yet more reports in Italy suggesting that AC Milan are planning a move for Cesc Fabregas.

And the Daily Mirror say Bournemouth plan to offer Chelsea £10m for Asmir Begovic, having failed to clinch a deal to sign the goalkeeper last month.

Finally, The Sun suggest Chelsea will target Leonardo Bonucci, who was previously linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

It follows reports in Italy that the defender has had a row with Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri.
