Let’s see some of the transfer news around the football world.
Arsenal agree deal for Jakub Kiwior
Arsenal has agreed on a deal worth more than €20m for Polish international defender Jakub Kiwior.
The 22-year-old went to Italy from Zilina in the summer of 2021 and has been with his current club Spezia ever since.
At the most recent World Cup in Qatar, Kiwior played for Poland and made four appearances as they advanced to the competition’s knockout rounds for the first time since 1986.
However, as per reports, his Serie A career is ending because Premier League leaders Arsenal is nearing a deal worth more than €20 million. This weekend, a medical checkup is expected to be finished.
Highly regarded Kiwior is anticipated to agree to a long-term deal at the Emirates Stadium, which will expand Mikel Arteta’s choices in the center of defense.

Manchester United is preparing a summer swoop for Harry Kane
In preparation for a blockbuster Premier League deal, Manchester United has made Tottenham star Harry Kane a “high priority.”
According to a new report published late Friday by Sami Mokbel and Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail, that is the case.
To improve United’s attacking options for the upcoming season, manager Erik ten Hag places the English striker at the top of his list.
According to sources, the player “is open to joining United,” and club officials from Manchester “have already started exploring the particulars” of how to make the transfer.
Kane’s current deal isn’t up until June 2024, and depending on where the Spurs place in the standings at the end of the season, he may take exit negotiations very seriously.
The player will, however, come with a price tag of at least £85 million from Tottenham.
According to the latest reports, Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Benjamin Sesko of Red Bull Salzburg are being evaluated as alternatives to Harry Kane.
