Man City 'fighting Chelsea and Tottenham to sign Inter star Milan Skriniar'
Manchester City are set to join Chelsea and Tottenham in the race to sign Inter Milan star Milan Skriniar with the defender's contract set to expire at the end of the season.The 27-year-old has been attracting interest from all over Europe and was the subject of a lengthy, but ultimately unsuccessful, approach from PSG over the summer.City signed Manuel Akanji on transfer deadline day, though are expected to go back in for another centre back next summer with manager Pep Guardiola keen for a bit of a defensive reshuffle.READ MORE: Man City stalling Kyle Walker contract talks despite still being first choice right-backNathan Ake came close to leaving the club last month while Aymeric Laporte is yet to feature this season due to injury and a move for the highly-rated Skriniar makes sense, especially if he's available on a free.Chelsea have been tracking Skriniar for a few years and are still in the market for a centre back despite splashing £69.5m on Wesley Fofana, especially if their late approach for RB Leipzig's Josko Gvardiol is anything to go by.Tottenham have also been showing an interest in the Slovakian, who worked well under Antonio Conte during the Italian's two-year spell at the San Siro.Who will Skriniar be playing for next season? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.Skriniar joined Inter in 2017 from Serie A rivals Sampdoria for around £15m, having moved to Italy from hometown side MSK Zilina a year earlier.He's barely missed a match in the past five season, racking up over 200 appearances for the Milan club, and Inter are keen to tie him down to a new deal, despite his, and the club's, shaky start to the new campaign.The Nerazzurri are currently seventh in the table after losing three of

Wesley Fofana not included in Leicester squad to face Chelsea as saga takes new twist
Chelsea target Wesley Fofana will play no part in Leicester's trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend following news that the 21-year-old has been left out of Brendan Rodgers' squad.Thomas Tuchel's side are desperate to sign Fofana but with Leicester playing hard-ball, getting a deal over the line before the transfer window closes next week will be no easy task.The Blues have had several bids for the defender turned down with Leicester holding out for a world record fee of over £80million, though with Fofana pushing for the move, there's optimism within Chelsea's camp that they'll get their man eventually.READ MORE: Chelsea target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 'waves goodbye' to BarcelonaIt'll be the second match in a row that Fofana will have missed, having been left out of the Leicester squad for last weekend's defeat to Southampton, with Rodgers insisting he didn't want to pick players who weren't in the right mindset.Fofana is keen to join Chelsea and has urged his club to honour the agreement they made with him when he signed a contract extension in March, which was to let him leave should a substantial enough offer be tabled.The Frenchman feels that the £70million that Chelsea have reportedly bid for him is more than fair, though Leicester insist that their agreement isn't valid until next summer.How much is Wesley Fofana worth? Let us know in the comments section below.The Foxes have continually insisted that Fofana isn't for sale and would only be tempted to do business if they received a record fee, though Chelsea are desperate not to top the figure Manchester United paid for Harry Maguire to ensure Fofana avoids the pressure of being the world's most expensive defender.However, Leicester's financial troubles could end

Arsenal have 'two alternative options' if Youri Tielemans transfer doesn't come off
Arsenal are lining up a couple of transfer alternatives if they fail to land Youri Tielemans this summer.The Gunners have already spent over £100million on the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira, though manager Mikel Arteta is still keen to add to his midfield.It's understood that Arsenal will be testing Leicester City's resolve by submitting an official bid for the Belgian this week, though the Midlands club are notoriously tough negotiators and a deal between the two sides is far from a guarantee.READ MORE: Arsenal target Pedro Neto already declared love for Gunners before transfer interestIf Tielemans stays put, Arsenal will look to AC Milan's Sandro Tonali and Brighton's Moises Caicedo as potential alternatives.Tonali has been likened - in both paying style and appearance - to Italy legend Andrea Pirlo, while Caicedo is considered one of the hottest prospects in the Premier League at the moment.But Tielemans remains the club's number one target, particularly as he's already proven himself in English football, and with his contract expiring in less than 12 months' time, he won't cost an arm and a leg.ARSENAL FANS - Who would you rather sign: Tielemans, Tonali or Caicedo? Let us know in the comments section below.With Chelsea ruthlessly pursuing Wesley Fofana this summer, Arsenal are aware that Leicester might not want to lose two important first team stars in the same window - hence the back up plans.Tielemans started Leicester's first two league matches of the season but, like Fofana, was named among the substitutes at the weekend against Southampton, with Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers later explaining his selection."One, a change in system and two, I mentioned in the week, we’re coming into a
