Goalkeepers: Diego Alves [Valencia], Weverton [Atletico-PR], Ederson [Benfica].

Arsenal and Man City seek Alex Sandro

Arsenal have joined Manchester City and Real Madrid in the push for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

The 26-year-old Brazilian was only signed in 2015 from Porto for €26m, but he has proved to be a bargain with some remarkable performances.

Manchester City had already been linked with a huge offer for Alex Sandro, but now The Sun notes that Arsenal are also interested in a summer swoop.

This season he contributed two goals and five assists in 40 competitive appearances for Juventus, helping them to the Champions League Final.

Man City bid €70m for Alex Sandro

Manchester City are ready to pay €70m for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro and Italian papers suggest the Bianconeri would accept.

The Brazilian was only signed from FC Porto in the summer of 2015 for €26m, so this move would triple their investment in just two years.

On the other hand, aged just 26, it would be risky to sell when he’s not even in the Brazil squad yet and has more to give.

The rise of Alex Sandro

The defender has developed into an integral member of Juventus’ backline and has quite rightly earned the plaudits this season, writes Nick Valerio.

When Juventus secured the latest star from the Porto talent conveyor belt in August 2015, they knew they were acquiring the services of the archetypal Brazilian full-back: an athletic presence who placed great emphasis on attack.
