Arsenal agree Sokratis deal 0

Posted on June 08, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos, according to the Telegraph. However, the report also reveals that the deal will not be officially confirmed before July.

The Greek centre-back is the second signing the Gunners are set to make since the appointment of Unai Emery as the manager, and given the way the squad is (un)balanced at the moment, it’s not really surprising that both of them represent defensive reinforcements.

Sokratis started his career in his homeland with AEK Athens, after three years he moved to Italy where he played for Genoa and AC Milan. He moved to Werder Bremen in 2011, and two years later he signed for Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of teenager Yacine Adli, according to the Guardian.

The contract that he’s being offered by Arsenal is for three years, and it includes options for extensions.

Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen have all but confirmed that highly rated goalkeeper Bernd Leno will be leaving the club for greener pastures in the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old has been one of the leading shot-stoppers in the Germany’s top flight for quite some time now, making between 32 and 34 appearances in each of the last six Bundesliga campaigns.

However, Leno appears to have decided to leave the club this summer, which led to Bayer Leverkusen signing Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Arsenal are closing in on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos, according to BBC, the Telegraph, Sky Sports and various other sources. The reported sum which the club would pay for the centre-back is £16million.

At 29, Sokratis has a year remaining on his contract at Dortmund. Along with Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner who is set to join Arsenal for free, the Greece international would represent another low-cost experienced addition to the squad’s defence department. Given the reported size of the funds available for transfers this summer, this is certainly the type of targets the club will be going for.

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is ready to consider staying at the Emirates beyond the current season, according to his official representative, despite reports linking him with a summer exit.

The Spanish forward had played mere 265 minutes of Premier League football during his debut season in North London and he eventually decided to return to Deportivo La Coruna on loan last summer.

After scoring 8 goals in 35 La Liga outings, the 29-year-old has returned to Arsenal, but everything suggests he will again be moving clubs this summer.

Emery wants Lichtsteiner 0

According to various sources, Arsenal are in talks to sign Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus this summer.

It seems Unai Emery is very keen on adding some experienced defensive options to his squad, and Lichtsteiner, whose contract with the Turin club is set expire next month, tops his wish-list. The 34-year-old would thus become the first signing the club has made under the former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain boss.

Set to captain Switzerland in the upcoming World Cup in Russia, Lichtsteiner certainly possesses leadership qualities, and he would provide some balance to the defence mainly consisting of relatively young players. At Arsenal, he would compete against the 23-year-old Hector Bellerin for a place in the starting XI.

According to Sky, Arsenal are interested in securing the services of Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini.

Pellegrini is a midfielder, a product of Roma’s academy. However, he had made just one senior appearance for the club when he signed for Sassuolo in the summer of 2015. Two years, 54 games and 11 goals later, Roma put into effect their buy-back clause and brought him back to the Stadio Olimpico. Since then, he has played in 36 games and scored three goals in all competitions.

ESPN has learned that Premier League giants Arsenal and Chelsea are both showing interest in Hamburger SV youngster Josha Mamadou Karaboue Vagnoman.

The talented full-back largely impressed while representing Germany at the Under-17 World Cup in India last year, while he was handed his senior debut for the club in the 6-0 Bundesliga defeat to Bayern Munich.

Vagnoman’s promising displays did not go unnoticed as the likes of Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton are all keen on his services.

Wenger should stop talking about regrets 1

Posted on May 17, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s always tough to admit when you’re in the wrong, and it’s even tougher to admit when you’ve missed an opportunity. As we’ve seen over the last few years, Arsene Wenger isn’t shy when it comes to talking about some of his mistakes from years gone by – and while we appreciate that in regards to Arsenal’s exploits on the pitch, it isn’t really all too helpful when it comes to players that he wishes he would’ve signed.
