The European Championships return on Friday afternoon with holders Germany facing Spain in the first quarter-final tie.

The match pits arguably the competition’s two most impressive sides against each other, with a place in the semi-finals at stake.

Euro 2024 has also provided players with the opportunity to impress and potentially attract interest from other clubs, and it apears that Arsenal have now agreed terms with one of their stars of the group stages.

As per Italian transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, the North London side have agreed the terms of a long-term contract with Italy defender Riccardo Calafiori.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a fine season for Bolgona last season, helping the Italian side to finish fifth in the Serie A table.

He made 33 appearances for Bologna last season, having signed from Swiss side Basel last summer.

Calafiori also impressed for his country in their three group stage games at the Euros, however he missed their last 16 tie against Switzerland, which ended in a 2-0 defeat.

Romano claims that Arsenal have agreed a contract until the summer of 2029 with the Italian, and they are now working to agree a fee with Bologna.

The Serie A side are said to be demanding a fee of around £42 million for the defender, who can play as a central defender or at left-back.

If a sale can be agreed, Calafiori’s former club Basel will be entitled to 50% of any sale over £3.8 million as part of the deal that took the player to Italy last summer.
