Arsenal shock frontrunners in David Luiz chase — Transfer News

Wearing thin Antonio Conte is frustrated with his small squad

Wearing thin Antonio Conte is frustrated with his small squad

"Our squad isn't big. It is impossible to sell or loan a player if we don't sign another player".

"Extend my contract with Juventus?". Brazil defender Luiz could return in the FA Cup at Norwich on Saturday following a knee injury, but Andreas Christensen is now first choice in the centre of the three-man defence.

Morata's poor game against Arsenal would have no doubt been made worse by Diego Costa scoring on his second debut for Atletico Madrid at the same time - in the Copa del Rey against Real Sociedad.

Attack: The slight change in formation means Conte needs to lose one of his attackers but I think we'll see Pedro and Willian make way despite both impressing at the weekend. I don't see a problem.

And if any of his players want to leave for more playing time elsewhere, he said he won't hold it against them.

The Frenchman claims his squad will be taking it one game at a time - without looking further ahead at what lost points might affect their overall campaign. Apart from these two clubs, Manchester United and Barcelona have also been linked. I'm only a coach.

"Juventus feels like family to me and I couldn't be better".

It is hard to imagine, but the fact he is even considering it is revealing.

Wenger, meanwhile, has pledged to bring in top-class replacements if Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil decide to leave.

"We must be disappointed; we had a great chance to win, but we must accept the final result".

He said: "We're looking to do some things".

"I want to say thanks for when they sing my name, too!"

Regardless of Christensen's exceptional development, players of Luiz's quality and experience are tough to replace.

Chelsea reportedly missed out on a number of players last summer, including Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Sandro - all of which either moved to other clubs or didn't move at all.
