Arsenal are looking into the possibility of bringing Real Madrid midfielder Lucas Silva to the Premier League, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Brazilian joined Madrid in a £10 million deal last season, but has fallen down the pecking order under new boss Rafa Benitez.

The Spanish giants are willing let Silva go and would prefer he moved abroad instead of joining a Spanish rival.

According to Spanish publication AS, there is a three-way battle for the Brazilian developing between Arsenal, Man United and Chelsea. 


In other news, Juventus are worried that their interest in Julian Draxler could be blown out the water by Arsenal, according to reports in Italy.

The Italian giants have been chasing the German international all summer, as they look to rebuild their squad, however they are wary that Arsenal would be able to outbid them should negotiations get serious.

Arsene Wenger tried and failed to bring Draxler to the Emirates in 2014 and interest surrounding the playmaker has been quiet throughout this window.

However The Old Lady must feel there is sufficient interest in the player from Arsenal's side to be wary of making their interest too public.


And finally, there is a possibility Chelsea's goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon could follow Petr Cech to Arsenal after it was revealed he has a poor relationship with Jose Mourinho.

Despite the duo of Thibaut Courtois and Asmir Begovic liking Lollichon's work, Mourinho isn't a great fan of his training session.

This could pave the way for the coach to link up Cech, who he has worked with since his days at Rennes.
