Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Tottenham vying for Marc Guehi


Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur are all keen on signing Crystal Palace defensive sensation Marc Guehi.

According to a report from The Sun, Marc Guehi’s impressive performances for club and country have put him on the wishlist of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are keeping tables on the English international while Arsenal and Tottenham have a long-standing interest in the Crystal Palace defenders’ services.

Guehi came up the ranks at Chelsea. While he did get promoted to their first team in the winter of 2020, he parted ways with them in the summer of 2021 in search of regular first-team action. The 23-year-old defender has only gone from strength to strength since making the move to the Eagles.

He has established himself as one of the mainstays in their squad. On the back of an impressive season last time out, Guehi managed to earn a spot in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2024 and has done wonders so far.

While the player is busy doing his best for his nation, multiple top clubs are gearing up to prise him away from Crystal Palace. With only two years left on his deal at the club, the Eagles could look to cash in on him this summer to ensure they don’t risk him running down his contract.

While he is expected to be sold ahead of next season, Palace will only let him leave for a similar fee to the £50 million that Bayern Munich are putting forward for their French winger, Michael Olise.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Tottenham keen on Guehi

Real Madrid are one of the clubs keen on signing the 23-year-old centre-back. With Nacho leaving the club, the team in white are in desperate need to add a new defender and Guehi is quite high on their wishlist. Los Blancos’ rivals Barcelona are also keeping a close eye on the young English defender who has been in sensational form at Euro 2024.

Despite having signed two top centre-backs over the last two transfer windows, Tottenham are still on the lookout for another defender this summer as Ange Postecoglou seeks more depth in the backline. Guehi is a long-term target and they could make a move for him now.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal to rival other top clubs

Meanwhile, Arsenal are willing to rival Spurs as well as the Spanish giants in their pursuit of the former Chelsea academy graduate. Mikel Arteta already has three top-quality centre-backs at his disposal Jurrien Timber, Gabriel Magalhães and William Saliba.

But, they do not have much depth in the heart of the defence and in order to strengthen the rotation and have enough competition at the back, the Spanish manager wants to incorporate Guehi in his squad.
