Former Arsenal Winger, Reyes Dies In Car Crash

Sevilla Football Club has confirmed the death of ex-Arsenal and Spain attacker Jose Antonio Reyes in a car crash.

The former Sevilla academy graduate also had spells at Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, China and second-tier Spanish club Extremadura. He was 35 years old.

“We couldn’t be confirming worse news. Beloved Sevilla star Jose Antonio Reyes has died in a traffic collision. Rest in peace,” Sevilla, where he spent two four-year spells, said on Twitter.

The emergency services in Andalusia and the authorities in the player’s home town, Utrera, said Reyes died in an accident on the main road from Sevilla to Utrera. They said another member of his family also died and a third person was injured.

Man Utd Set To Beat Arsenal To PSG Defender

Manchester United are closing in on a £22m deal to sign Thomas Meunier after fending off interest from Arsenal to land the Paris Saint-Germain right-back, according to Belgian outlet DH.be.

Unai Emery is in the market for a new right-back to compete with Hector Bellerin as Stephan Lichtsteiner and Carl Jenkinson are expected to leave the Emirates this summer while Ainsley Maitland-Niles is more comfortable playing in midfield.

Meunier emerged as a prime target and Gazzetta Dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira claimed on Friday that Arsenal were in advanced talks with PSG to secure a deal after offering the full-back a five-year contract.
