Ivan Gazidis in Germany to pursue Aubameyang deal 0

Posted on January 22, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is in Germany in an effort to sign Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners have been long-term admirers of the striker and speculation in the media suggests that BVB may be willing to sell for around 60m Euros this month. The Gabon international has endured a number of disciplinarian problems of late at the German club, as it is believed he wishes to make the move to north London. It seems the players wish to leave may persuade Dortmund to sell.

Win over Palace will not paper over the cracks 0

Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday was certainly positive, especially on the back of Alexis Sanchez’s imminent departure from the club. Mesut Ozil, Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi all seemed more influential for the Gunners.

However, the win should not be used to paper over the cracks at the club or in the team. Palace headed to north London without a number of their key defensive players, including first-choice centre-back partnership of Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho.

Arsenal target Malcom has admitted that playing in England is ‘a dream’, with both the Gunners and Tottenham circling as the player’s future is still very much up in the air with the pace of the transfer window going up a notch.

Arsenal seem to be on the verge of losing Alexis Sanchez as the Chilean nears a move to Manchester United. It seemed as though the forward would be making a switch to Manchester, but to be with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. However, this proposed move never came to fruition and it seems likely that the Chilean will be playing in the red of United in the coming weeks.

Arsenal’s chase of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will cost ‘in excess of £5o million’ as the Premier League outfit looks to Borussia Dortmund’s star striker as they try to strengthen with the impending exit of Alexis Sanchez.

Alexis Sanchez will reportedly make a switch to Manchester United as the biggest transfer of the current window nears its completion. The Chilean has for so long been linked with a move away from London, but it seemed as though it would be for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has heaped praise on Henrikh Mkhitaryan as the Manchester United player edges closer to a move to the London side in an exchange that would see Alexis Sanchez join up with Jose Mourinho’s team.

Alexis Sanchez’s protracted transfer has been one that has filled the back pages for some time. It was widely expected that the star would switch London for Manchester, but most assumed it would be Manchester City and not Manchester United.

However, Jose Mourinho’s team have since emerged as the favourites to sign him in this window. A move to United for Sanchez is widely expected to happen soon, and it will reportedly see Henrikh Mkhitaryan move to play at Arsenal.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is close to joining his side from Arsenal despite the Chilean training with Arsene Wenger and his team ahead of this weekends games.

Reports have been constantly circulating this week as the proposed transfer of Alexis Sanchez edges ever closer. The forward had initially been linked with his former manager at Barcelona, Pep Guardiola and a move to Manchester City, but that deal did not come to fruition.

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to get back to winning ways.

Former-Arsenal star Alan Smith has claimed that Alexis Sanchez’s departure from the club will only help the position of Mesut Ozil when it comes to negotiating a new contract with the club, with the Chilean on the verge of a big move to Manchester United in the current transfer window.

Arsenal’s last Premier League game ended in a dismal 2-1 loss at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday as they lost even more ground on those above them. The Cherries were able to move up to 13th in the league with 24 points, four clear of the relegation zone. Arsenal, on the other hand, are now eight points short of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot, with their season threatening to go up in flames.

There are players in Arsenal’s dressing room that want Alexis Sanchez gone by this weekend’s games with the Chilean cited as a problem following his behaviour in recent weeks. The forward is reportedly close to a move to Manchester United, but the deal supposedly hinges on Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Arsenal were beaten by Bournemouth in embarrassing fashion on Sunday as they fell to yet another loss. Hector Bellerin scored the opening goal, but Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored to make it 2-1, with Arsene Wenger’s side then unable to find a goal to get back on terms.
