According to The Mirror , Chelsea are prepared to make a bid in the region of £60m to sign the Brazilian global, who would provide competition for Marcos Alonso at left wing-back. Arsenal's only recourse is to either sign him to a new deal (which seems unlikely, even just as a favor to the Gunners to ensure a transfer fee), or to sell him in January, when they might be able to convince Manchester City or Chelsea to fork over a big pile of cash.

Jay Bruce provided the offense with three RBIs, including a two-run home run. "Against guys he's handled in the past". But the Yankees couldn't slow the Indians comeback, even without Edwin Encarnacion , who sprained his ankle in the first inning and had to be helped off the field, and even after Cleveland recovered from Corey Kluber's disastrous ...
