Arsenal on the trail of Italian wonderkid 0

Posted on March 31, 2015 by David Nugent

According to the Metro, Arsenal are interested in signing highly-rated young Sassuolo striker Domenico Bernardi this summer.

The 20-year-old is currently co-owned by the Serie A minnows and reigning champions Juventus, but it seems that Italian champions are unlikely to exercise their right to sign the youngster. Bernardi has never actually appeared for Juventus and spent the last three seasons with the Neroverdi.

Co-owned

The Gunners could sign the highly-rated striker for a fee in the region of £11million, as co-ownership is being abolished as of the summer transfer window in Italy. That means if Juventus do not exercise their right to sign the striker this summer, then Sassuolo can sell the striker to whoever they wish.

Posted on March 31, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has been in fantastic form this season, and has become one of the most effective playmakers in the division as a result of his performances, but where does the Spanish international rank among his competition?

Making 29 Premier League appearances, scoring seven goals and making eight assists from 63 chances, Cazorla has been Arsenal’s most creative force, and has successfully adapted to playing as a deep-lying midfielder. The 30-year-old looked like he would spend the campaign on the periphery following a slow start to the season, but he’s been too good to leave out after finding his feet again.

The Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson later suggested the injury was not too serious, but the latest reports claim Welbeck is still rated doubtful for the all-important match against Liverpool.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal could make a big money move for England and Liverpool starlet Raheem Sterling, after talks over a new contract at Anfield had been put on hold until the end of the season.

Talks

Talks over a new contract for the youngster have been taking place all season, but an agreement has yet to be reached. The Reds are believed to be prepared to give Sterling the biggest contract in the history of the club reported to be worth £90,000 a-week, should he sign a new deal on Merseyside.

Chile star Charles Aranguiz admits he is flattered by the reported interest from Premier League giants Arsenal, although denies that any talks have taken place.

The 25-year-old midfielder has reportedly emerged as a target for Gunners manager Arsene Wenger, who had been impressed with the player’s performances for Chile at the 2014 World Cup finals.

And with Aranguiz reportedly available for mere £5.5 million, the Professor could step up his interest ahead of the summer transfer window as he hopes to turn his side into genuine title contenders.

Would Wenger cut his losses with Ozil if clubs approached him in the summer? 1

Posted on March 29, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has question marks over his future with the Londoners in the summer, with manager Arsene Wenger likely to consider his options. The German international cost Arsenal £42.5M in the summer of 2013 from Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid, but hasn’t proven he was worth such outlay yet.

He was regarded as one of the best playmakers previously, due to the assists and chances he’d make in Spain, but Ozil has since slipped down the pecking after making the move to London. The 26-year-old has scored three goals and made five assists in 14 league games, taking his entire tally with Arsenal to 11 goals, 21 assists in 62 games for Wenger’s side.

Could Marco Reus be an Arsenal player next season? 2

Posted on March 29, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal continued to be linked with Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus, and manager Arsene Wenger is certainly keen on him, but could the German international really be a Gunner next season?

Reus has endured a difficult season in the Bundesliga, as Jurgen Klopp’s side found themselves rock bottom of the division earlier on in the campaign. As a result, reports suggested the likes of Mats Hummels and Marco Reus would be the first two players to leave the Westfalenstadion, but the duo have since remained.

Gunners linked with a move for Southampton star 1

Posted on March 29, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal are being linked with a move for a Southampton midfielder and this time it is not France international midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. According to the Metro the Gunners are interested in signing Kenyan defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama in a £20million deal.

Impressive

Wanyama has been impressive in the heart of the Saints midfield since his arrival from Celtic in 2013. At just 23 years-old he is yet to even hit his peak as a midfielder.

He has forged a good partnership with Schneiderlin which has been key to the Saints relative success over the last few seasons, despite the fact that injury has hampered his development slightly this season.

Where is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s Best Position? 2

Posted on March 28, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has enjoyed a bittersweet season for the London outfit. He’s shown signs of progression, and has enjoyed some moments of individual brilliance for club and country, but there are still question marks about his best position, and he‘s still yet to become a regular starter for the Gunners and England.

The former Southampton youngster, 21, has played the majority of his games as a wide midfielder due to his excessive pace, dribbling skills and industrious nature. He not only provides protection to his fullback, he can also press his opposite number high up the pitch. But in addition to his impressive work rate, Oxlade-Chamberlain is engrained in the Arsenal mould. He can play at a high intensity, creates chances for the forwards, and is very versatile.
