Petr Cech’s arrival at the Emirates Stadium will take Arsenal another step closer to the Barclays Premier League title, according to Bob Wilson. 

‘I think he is one of the three best goalkeepers in the world,’ Wilson told talkSPORT. ‘As of this moment, I think Thibaut Courtois is the best goalkeeper in the world. I think he is ahead of Manuel Neuer. Petr Cech is right up there with those two.

‘At 33, you are absolutely still in your prime as a goalkeeper with your experience and everything. I think there is five, six seasons minimum from Petr Cech.’

Madrid-based newspaper Marca suggest Sergio Ramos is at ‘war’ with his current employers. 

Ramos is currently locked in contacts talks with Real Madrid but is not happy with the contract offer on the table. 

The Spain international has been linked with a move to Manchester United as the Red Devils are keen on taking one of Real Madrid stars in exchange for David de Gea. 

Barcelona believe they have agreed a deal to sign Paul Pogba in 2016, according to Mundo Deportivo. 

The Spanish newspaper claim Barcelona sporting director Ariedo Braida has held talks with Juventus chief Giuseppe Marotta. 

Spanish newspaper Sport suggest Barcelona have contacted Manchester United regarding the possibility of signing Argentina international Angel di Maria. 

The 27-year-old is said to have three offers on the table and is keen on leaving Old Trafford despite only joining the Red Devils last summer. 

Barcelona’s move for Di Maria would come as a surprise given the fact he represented Real Madrid for four years. 

There is something very bold about a manager who is willing to solve the problem of a rival. 

We thought Chelsea had done that by selling Juan Mata to Manchester United, but the payback never materialised. 

One can argue that David Luiz returned to haunt them in the Champions League with Paris Saint-Germain, but few thought the £50million that helped finance the arrival of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas was anything but grand business.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan wants a move to the Premier League this summer and has three offers from top English cubs, according to his agent.

‘His intention is to leave Spain this summer,’ Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut told Spanish sports newspaper AS.

‘His will is to leave and to play in the Premier League, that is the path he would like to take to continue his career.’
