While many Arsenal fans are currently getting caught up in the excitement of the summer transfer window, and rightly so, there are still some issues that need to be resolved closer to home. The likes of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are both still trying to sort out their contract ordeals at the Emirates, and it’s clear to see that Unai Emery has a specific vision regarding what kind of players he’s interested in keeping on the books at the club as he prepares for his first season in charge.

As reported by talkSPORT and initially by Sky Sports sources, it seems as if Arsenal are closing in on arguably their biggest signing of the summer transfer window so far: Bernd Leno. The German goalkeeper has been linked with a move away from Bayer Leverkusen for months now, and it seems as if Unai Emery has managed to persuade him to make the trip over to North London as the 26-year-old prepares for the next step in his promising career.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have agreed a deal worth around €30m with Sampdoria to sign talented central midfielder Lucas Torreira. The report suggests that the Gunners will pay the fee in instalments. The Uruguayan starlet has a release clause of around £22million.

Many legends come and go in English football, and many have come and gone at the Emirates over the last few years. However, one player in particular who we feel like hasn’t received the respect he deserves in Tomas Rosicky. You may not have been the biggest fan of his style and you may have preferred other midfielders over him throughout his Arsenal tenure, but nobody can deny that he was a committed member of the squad for the better part of a decade.

Posted on June 12, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While the focus of the summer will likely be on the World Cup and Unai Emery’s transfer dealings, there are some smaller factors associated with the gap in domestic football that really intrigue us. Of course, we could be completely alone in this view, but at the same time, we’re confident in saying that a lot of fans put stock into the little things. One of these ‘little things’ is the quality of any given new kit, and while we’re already covered what we think about the home effort, now, we’re here to talk about the away offering.
