Arsenal and Corinthians in Willian talks as Torreira nears Fiorentina loan

Brazilian side Corinthians are in talks with Arsenal over a deal to sign Willian, The Athletic understands.

The 33-year old has two years remaining on his Arsenal contract, but Corinthians hope to strike an agreement which would allow him to join on a free transfer. Both the player and Arsenal are open to the possibility of a departure. Willian came through the youth system at Corinthians, and has spoken previously of his desire to play for the Sao Paulo club again.

Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira also appears to be heading for the exit, with Arsenal in negotiations with Fiorentina over a loan with an option to buy. Torreira is understood to be keen on a return to Serie A, where he previously played for Sampdoria. Fiorentina hope to sign him on loan, with an option to make the deal permanent for a fee of around €15 million.

Southampton confident of signing former Everton defender Thierry Small

Southampton are confident of signing Everton youngster Thierry Small after the full-back cancelled his scholarship two years early, The Athletic can reveal.

Small cut ties with Everton two years early and didn’t report for pre-season after failing to receive guarantees over playing time.

And Southampton will now need to agree a compensation fee with the Merseyside club, although it could end up at a tribunal if the two clubs fail to do this — such as when Chelsea signed Ethan Ampadu from Exeter City and Liverpool signed Harvey Elliott from Fulham.
