Paper round-up: Galatasary linked with Welbeck and Janssen

Galatasaray are chasing Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, according to the Daily Mail.

The Turkish club are said to have made initial moves to see whether the England international would be interested in a move and are reported to be willing to pay Arsenal £16m.

The Mail say Welbeck is unlikely to fancy a move to Turkey, apparently because of the volatile political climate there.

Galatasaray are also said to have shown an interest in Tottenham forward Vincent Janssen.

Meanwhile, The Sun claim Chelsea are showing an interest in Bournemouth’s former Tottenham right-back Adam Smith, who has also been linked with a return to Spurs.

The Daily Mirror say Chelsea want Hamburg’s teenage forward Jann-Fiete Arp, who has impressed for Germany at the Under-17 European Championship.

Borussia Dortmund are also said to be showing an interest in Arp, who has scored 26 goals in 21 games for Hamburg’s youth sides this season and has a year remaining on his contract.

The Sun say Arsenal are keen on Alvaro Morata and have lined the Real Madrid forward up as possible replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

The Sun also say Chelsea are determined to sign a centre-back and that Athletic Bilbao’s Aymeric Laporte is their first choice, with Valencia’s Ezequiel Garay a potential back-up option.

Frenchman Laporte reportedly has a £54.6m release clause in his contract.
