Kiwior battle

Arsenal star Jakub Kiwior is said to be attracting plenty of attention this summer, with a transfer battle developing in Italy. According to Calciomercato.com, AC Milan will have scouts at Euro 2024 to see the full-back in action against the Netherlands on Sunday.

The Gunners are said to value the ful-back at around £20million, but it’s reported that both Juventus and AC Milan are considering bids, both of which are likely to be under that figure. Kiwior is still under a long-term deal at the Emirates Stadium, spanning until the summer of 2028.

De Ligt valuation

United are now said to be pursuing a deal for Bayern Munich star Matthijs de Ligt after seeing a bid rejected by Everton for Jarrad Branthwaite. That’s according to the Daily Mail, who say Bayern are demanding as much as £42million for their Dutch centre-back.

While that is a big figure, it could be a big boost for United given Everton reportedly rejected an offer worth £43millon for Branthwaite, making De Ligt a cheaper option. De Ligt is still only 24 years of age, already gaining plenty of experience at the top across spells with Bayern and Juventus, while he also has 45 caps for Netherlands, a figure that will be rising across the course of Euro 2024.

Keane on Alexander-Arnold

Roy Keane believes Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold could get ‘ripped to shreds’ at Euro 2024 if he is played in midfield. “It’s all about getting the balance right in your team,” Keane has said. “They’ve got some brilliant individuals, we’ve mentioned that many times before. There are four or five players that would walk into any of the teams in this tournament but it’s getting that balance right.

“It’s all about getting the balance right in your team. They’ve got some brilliant individuals, we’ve mentioned that many times before. There are four or five players that would walk into any of the teams in this tournament but it’s getting that balance right. I think they’ll be fine in the group, I think Trent will be fine with his positioning in those matches, but it’s against the real top teams that I think he will be found out, very much so. In fact, I think he would be ripped to shreds if he plays against one of the better teams in central midfield. I don’t think he’d be up to it.”
