According to Tuttosport, Arsenal have submitted a €35m bid for Moise Kean but a clause is causing them a problem in a story that’s bit of a mess.

Tuttosport report that Arsenal have laid down €35m in a story that has moved rapidly since Arsenal were first linked with him in this window. Sadly, they get the story from the British media and seem to have got some of their wires crossed.

Nobody in the British media seems to be claiming Arsenal have made a bid but The S*n are claiming Juventus also want to include a £36m buy-back clause in any deal. Arsenal are said to be reluctant to agree to that. The S*n also claim Kean is available for £31.5m – €35m.

It’s got all the elements of a good Arsenal transfer story – bid for a player they can’t afford. That seems to be the theme of this window judging by the majority of stories making publication.

Are Arsenal interested in Moise Kean? I don’t know. All I do know is that at the weekend Di Marzio reported Arsenal were interested and by Monday parts of the British press (The S*n) were claiming contract clauses were being discussed.

Make of that what you will.

With Mino Raiola in charge of any deal, it’s clear there will be only one winner no matter what happens – Mino Raiola.
