Transfer News: Man Utd and Chelsea on Messi alert, Arsenal’s edge, Liverpool battle

Arsenal reportedly have been given a boost in their pursuit of Celta Vigo star Nolito.

The Gunners along with Chelsea, are thought to be in the frame as well as Barcelona, who are seeking a replacement for Pedro.

But Barca vice-president Susana Monje has inadvertently cleared the way for Arsenal to sign him, by claiming the club will be ‘prudent’ with their transfer business.

“We can sign and shall make an effort to do so, but we have to be prudent,” she said as quoted by the club’s official website.
