Arsenal and Tottenham keeping tabs on Juventus fringe player
For much of the back end of 2021, it has seemed as though the future of Juventus fringe player Dejan Kulusevski lay in north London.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been credited with an interest in the wideman, who can also operate as a striker, as they look to bolster their ranks. Both clubs are in desperate need of a striker, with Tottenham seeking backup to Harry Kane, and the Gunners looking for a long-term replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng, currently out of the side in disgrace.
Mikel Arteta very clear on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang situation: “Pierre wasn’t selected. We’ll take it game by game. That was the decision”, Arteta said. 🚫 #AFC
“The unity we have around the club and with our fans is very pleasing”, Arsenal manager added. pic.twitter.com/uBpR2W5PtR

And Kulusevski is thought to be available for as little as 35 million euros, which could certainly be an affordable price for both Premier League clubs.
But, will they get him?
Bayern join the race
Now, news has come out about Bayern Munich looking to target another winger, despite already possessing Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane in their Arsenal.
There were reports that they had already agreed a deal with Leeds United for Raphinha, but that was debunked by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
There’s still nothing agreed between Leeds and FC Bayern for Raphinha as things stand. He’s appreciated by Bayern, waiting for Coman situation to be decided – but also Premier League clubs are following him for next summer. 🇧🇷 #LUFC #transfers

Now, according to reports in Italy, Bayern Munich have entered the race for the Swede, although it is unknown whether or not he is above Raphinha on their list of transfer targets.
But, with Liverpool and Chelsea both offering attractive propositions to Raphinha with their reported interest, could we see Bayern looking for a cheaper, younger, and more under the radar option in Kulusevski?
