Posted on September 24, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

Arsene Wenger’s side are now four games unbeaten in all competitions, having recorded three victories. The latest wins have certainly lifted the doom and gloom slightly of the fans.

As one of my colleagues revealed earlier, Arsenal now look resigned to losing German playmaker Mesut Ozil. The 28-year-old’s contract is up next summer and it now looks highly unlikely he will sign a new deal.

Like teammate Alexis Sanchez, the Germany international has turned down numerous big money offers of a new deal at the Emirate Stadium and looks set to leave the north London club in the near future.

According to the Daily Mirror via TMW, ambitious Italian outfit Inter are set to hold talks in January with the playmaker about a summer move. Any move next summer would leave the Gunners empty-handed.

After seeing Arsenal fail to agree new deals with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, it appears Arsene Wenger is desperate to avoid a similar situation with the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck, whose contract will enter the last year at the end of the season, reports the Daily Star.

“Yes, that is something we want to address. Both of them are in a good moment for us. But this season there were 107 players in the Premier League who got into the final year of their contract for the first time and you will see that more,” said Wenger.

Juventus midfielder Juan Cuadrado insists that he’s happy he stayed in Turin, despite the likes of Arsenal showing an interest a number of weeks ago. The Colombian international was reportedly the subject of a €25m bid from Arsenal this summer and looked on his way out as the Serie A champions signed Douglas Costa from Bayern Munich and Federico Bernardeschi from Fiorentina.

However, the 29-year-old remained with Juve and is now enjoying a real upturn in form – three goals scored and created in four Serie A appearances. And Cuadrado denied claims that he was ever looking for a way out of Juventus, insisting he’s happy in Turin and the club are doing everything to keep him content.

According to The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain could make an approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens. The Ligue 1 side would be able to sign Alexis on a pre-contract deal due to him being a free agent the following summer, and Manchester City are reportedly worried that the French club could agree terms with the Chilean due to their greater finances.

According to TMW, Arsenal are deadline with the eventuality that playmaker Mesut Ozil will leave the club for next at the end of the season. Ozil had previously stated he would consider extending his stay at the Emirates Stadium, but latest reports suggest otherwise.

The German international has so far failed to agree terms on a new deal, and TMW believe Arsenal are preparing for his departure the following summer as a result. Ozil was being tipped to leave Arsenal ahead of this season but there was no club willing to meet his asking price or match his wage demands.

Wenger: Something will happen to the transfer system in 12 months 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes there will be an overhaul in the transfer system within a year, after seeing fees spiral over the summer. Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for around €200m, and have also signed Kylian Mbappe for €150m – to be paid next year.

Germany chancellor Angela Merkel said Paris Saint-Germain’s spending was “incomprehensible” while adding that: “UEFA and FIFA should still adjust the rules to achieve a more sporting balance”. Wenger says change will come, perhaps in the next year, revealing how things aren’t working.

Milan lead Arsenal in the race for Udinese’s Jakub Jankto 0

Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

AC Milan are reportedly ready to make a bid for Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto, according to Calciomercato via talkSPORT. The Serie A giants are said to be in the market for a central midfielder and have long been an admirer of Jankto. Milan could make an official approach when the January transfer window opens.

Arsenal and Everton have also been linked with the 21-year-old, who last season scored and created nine goals in 24 Serie A starts, and has contributed two goals in five appearances this campaign. The Gunners have long needed to strengthen their midfield, but Jankto may be unlikely to dethrone the likes of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey currently.

Arsenal were trying to bolster their attack earlier this summer with the future of Alexis Sanchez unknown. Manager Arsene Wenger didn’t want to let the Chilean international exit the Emirates Stadium without having brought in a replacement, and Mertens is a player believed to be high on the wishlist.

Arsenal will hope to continue the impressive run against West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates on Monday night.

The Baggies are yet to win a single game in north London for the past seven years and the Gunners will make sure their desperate stretch continues despite some serious selection issues Arsene Wenger is facing.

Influential midfielder Santi Cazorla is nowhere near to return from his Achilles Tendon injury, whereas Calum Chambers, Francis Coquelin and Danny Welbeck also miss out.

Theo Walcott is likely to be left out due to a knock he sustained during the Carabao Cup clash with Doncaster, whereas Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil both stand in line for a starting berth on Monday.
