Posted on December 02, 2016 by Milos Markovic

The Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has been engaged in contract negotiations with the North London club for quite some time, but the talks appear to have hit the wall.

One of Arsenal’s best players this season is enjoying quite a spell and has reportedly alarmed his former club Real Madrid, who appear to be willing to capitalize on the contract stalemate and bring the World Cup winner back to Santiago Bernabeu.

Mesut Ozil left La Liga giants back in 2013 to join Gunners in a record £42.5 million deal, but the German international has left the door open for a possible return to Santiago Bernabeu according to reports from an interview with the Spanish news outlet Marca.

Posted on November 29, 2016 by Milos Markovic

Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom could be set for a January move away from the North London club, according to reports.

The 21-year-old is close to returning to action following a back injury he suffered back in September, but the Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger is contemplating an option to send his striker out on loan in order to help him gain valuable first-team experience.

Akpom has made only one senior appearance for the Gunners this term, taking part in Arsenal’s 4-0 League Cup win over Nottingham Forest and is likely to find it hard to break into the first-team fold.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted forward Alexis Sanchez will be set for a big payrise should he extend his deal with the Londoners this season. The Chilean attacker has been in outstanding form in 2016/17 as a makeshift striker and only has 18 months left on his deal.

Sanchez has been linked with Manchester City among other European clubs, but does look set to extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium. And despite stalling on talks so far, Wenger is confident Sanchez will sign a new deal but suggested he’ll be in line for a notably payrise.

Spanish international Santi Cazorla is a target for two of the biggest Serie A clubs, according to reports from the Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato.

The charismatic Spaniard, one of the fan favourites is nearing the end of his contract with the Gunners as talks over a new deal took a worrying stall.

Should Santi Cazorla fail to renew his contract before January, the 31-year-old Spanish midfielder will be free to open negotiations with interested parties over a move that would take place once his current contract with Arsenal expires in the summer of 2017.

The North London club have apparently stepped inside the chase for the talented Hull defender Josh Tymon, a highly sought-after 17-year-old.

The ESPN reports that Gunners are slowly ramping up their interest in a defender who is still on his scholarship deal as Liverpool and Everton remain linked with the player as well.

Arsenal are thought to have been impressed by Tymon’s appearances in the FA Cup goalless draw at the Emirates last season and to have kept a close watch on the player who made his Premier League debut last week against Sunderland.

Posted on November 18, 2016 by Milos Markovic

European champions Real Madrid are being linked with a move for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in a deal reportedly worth £25 million.

Despite the fact Spanish giants are not allowed to make any transfer-related moves until January 2018, the British media outlet The Sun has today spread the word on Los Blancos being eager to snap the Welsh international once FIFA have lifted their transfer ban.

Real Madrid are hopeful their appeal against the two-window transfer ban will be a success, which would ultimately allow them to make a desired move earlier than planned.

Should Arsenal enquire about Chris Smalling in January? 0

Posted on November 15, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling could be on his way out of Old Trafford if reports are to be believed, with the England international having fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho this season, but could Arsenal be his next destination should he leave the Red Devils?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has long been keen on the centre-back and tried to sign him when Manchester United enquired about former Gunners defender Thomas Vermaelen in 2014. However, no move materialised involving Smalling and Arsenal turned their attention to other targets as a result.

Arsenal join chase for Rennes forward 0

Posted on November 15, 2016 by Milos Markovic

French international Paul-Georges Ntep has drawn plenty of attention from some of the Europe’s top clubs this season and is widely expected to leave the Ligue 1 side Rennes once the transfer window reopens in January.

The 24-year-old Cameroon-born winger’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season which puts Rennes into a tight spot as they do not have little choice but to sell their prized asset in order to avoid losing him on free transfer next summer.

Ntep is not short of suitors as the two-cap French international is a target for several clubs in Italy and England.

Posted on November 11, 2016 by Milos Markovic

British papers have been filled with shocking reports claiming that Manchester United are readying a spectacular bid for Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to reunite with the player he managed at Real Madrid and The Sun reports that the Portuguese manager is looking to take advantage of any possible breakdown in contract talks between Mesut Ozil and his club Arsenal.

Gunners and the German international have been engaged in extensive contract talks for quite some time now, as Ozil appears to be holding off from signing a new deal with his club.

Gabigol linked with Arsenal switch 0

Posted on November 08, 2016 by Milos Markovic

Premier League high-fliers Arsenal are believed to be looking at the possibility to bring Gabriel Barbosa in January.

The Brazilian forward has struggled at Inter Milan ever since his €29.5 million transfer from Santos and despite the fact Gabigol was brought back to the first team for Inter’s clash against Crotone at the weekend, the 20-year-old is still expected to leave the club in January.

Nicknamed Gabigol due to his prolific goal-scoring form at Santos, Gabriel Barbosa was also likened to Barcelona star Neymar and is tipped to make a great name for himself in Europe despite the early struggles he is experiencing in Serie A.
