Arsenal are planning a defensive overhaul in the summer, according to Independent.

The club have lost faith in their back line and goalkeeper Petr Cech, with centre-back Sokratis Papastathopoulos of Borussia Dortmund identified as a top priority. 

The Gunners also want Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak to replace Cech, but fear the Slovenian will prove too expensive.  

Juventus are ready to offer Chelsea €60 million for striker Alvaro Morata, reports Tuttosport.

The Spanish forward starred at Juve from 2014 to 2016, before returning to Real Madrid and then moving to Chelsea last summer. 

After a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge, Juve hope that an initial loan offer of €15m plus a subsequent €45m purchase fee will lure the 25-year-old back to Turin. 

Chelsea could be forced to pay Antonio Conte more than £10 million if they are to sack him this summer, according to Yahoo Sport UK.

Due to a clause in Conte’s contract, if the club replace him, he must be paid for one year or until he takes on a new managerial position.

If Conte does not find new employment Chelsea would be on the hook to pay his 2018-19 salary, which is a possibility with the PSG and Italy jobs set to go to other candidates.
