Patrick Van Aanholt has reached an agreement to join Galatasaray. The Ducth left-back, a first-choice for the Netherlands at Euro 2020, is a free agent after his contract with Crystal Palace expired on 30 June. He will commit to Galatasaray until 2024.

Karpin

Valeri Karpin appointed Russia coach

Former Celta and Real Sociedad player Valeri Karpin has been named coach of Russia's national team, taking the reins from Stanislav Cherchésov, who was sacked after the team's poor display at Euro 2020. Karpin, who is currently coaching Rostov, has been handed a contract until 31 December 2021 with the option of an extension.

Besiktaş eyeing Godín

Besiktaş are back in the Champions League and looking for an experienced centre-back. According to AS sources, the Turkish club's first choice is Diego Godín.

The former Atlético Madrid captain has made no secret of the fact that he has received offers from Turkish and Russian clubs. His current club Cagliari are asking for him to take a salary reduction, as he is one of the highest paid players in the team, and this could see them part ways.

Lacazette

Arsenal hoping to offload Lacazette

Alexandre Lacazette, who is now in the final year of his contract, does not enter in the club's plans for the new season. The forward, who at one point was Arsenal's most expensive signing (53 million euros from Olympique Lyon in 2017), is on the transfer list as the Gunners aim to raise funds to buy Chelsea's Tammy Abraham. Some reports claim that Arsenal would be willing to accept a fee of around 17 million euros for Lacazette.
