Turkish international wants Gunners move 0

Posted on June 21, 2018 by David Nugent

Young Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu has revealed that he would like to move to Arsenal. The 22-year-old has been linked with a £35million move to North London this summer.

However, the defender has stated that any deal depends on his German club Freiburg, who have yet to agree a deal with a club for the defender’s services.

Talking about his future, Soyuncu told Turkish media outlet Gunes: ‘Arsenal are an option & I want to go there. But I have 3 more years on my current contract and everything depends on the club [Freiburg],’

Emery has ‘plan in place’ for Ramsey 0

Posted on June 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While many fans are still mourning Jack Wilshere’s departure from Arsenal Football Club, manager Unai Emery has already moved onto the next phase of his plan to revolutionise the way in which the Gunners play football. That may sound a little bit overdramatic, but at the end of the day, the Spaniard has already made a series of changes that others would’ve taken months upon months to implement.

Anyway, regarding the subject matter of this article, it turns out that Emery values Welshman Aaron Ramsey a little bit more than we might’ve originally thought. He is hoping and expecting him to sign a new long-term deal with the club and moving forward, it seems as if he’ll be an integral part of the Gunners’ operation in the middle of the park.

Sampdoria president announces Torreira departure 0

According to Sky Sports (and other outlets as well), Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that Lucas Torreira has left the club.

Torreira’s contract with the Italian club reportedly contains a £22million release clause, and Arsenal, reluctant to pay the whole sum up front, offered to pay an increased fee of £26.4million (€30million) in several installments instead.

Ferrero spoke live on Italian television and sad Torreira had left for €30million. He praised the club’s business sense as they signed the midfielder from Pescara in 2015 for just 10% of the sum they are set to cash in on his departure. After spending a season on loan back at Pescara, Torreira made a total of 74 appearances for Sampdoria and scored four goals along the way.

The signing of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been officially confirmed, for a reported fee of £19.3 million. The 26-year-old joins from Bayer Leverkusen, with whom he made over 200 appearances across an impressive tenure. Now, however, it’s time for him to try something different, as he attempts to make a name for himself in the Premier League.

That’s right – don’t adjust your computer screens or whatever you’re reading this on. After ten years with the club, midfielder Jack Wilshere will be leaving Arsenal ahead of the new season. The 26-year-old’s future has been up in the air for months upon months now, and nobody was sure as to what the final conclusion would be. Alas, following a meeting with new boss Unai Emery, it seems as if Wilshere will not be featuring into the Spaniard’s plans throughout the 2018/19 season and beyond.

Arsenal set for Checkatrade Trophy 0

While many clubs, media members and pundits alike often look down on the Checkatrade Trophy, there’s a good idea in there somewhere beyond the car crash of its inception. As we gear up for another season of domestic football, it seems as if the bigger clubs are starting to take more notice of the competition, with Arsenal confirming that they will enter an under-21s team for the 2018/19 campaign.

Bernd Leno announcement imminent 0

According to Metro, Arsenal fans may not have to wait long for one of their biggest signings in years to be confirmed as Bernd Leno’s arrival from Bayer Leverkusen is imminent. The 26-year-old’s move to English football has been spoken about in hush tones for a long time now, but it finally seems as if he’s going to get the chance to test himself outside the realms of Germany. Leno is still a few years away from his prime as a goalkeeper, and that may be the most frightening fact of all as Arsenal fans prepare themselves for what’s next.

Lichtsteiner receives criticism 0

Posted on June 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The 2018 FIFA World Cup is in full swing, and we’ve already seen plenty of surprising results. Argentina were held to a draw by Iceland, reigning champions Germany were defeated by Mexico, and last night, Switzerland managed to grab a point from their opener against favourites Brazil. Despite that, however, new Arsenal signing Stephan Lichtsteiner’s performance wasn’t received particularly well by pundits and fans alike.

Many thought that he was slow to read the ball, didn’t deal with pressure all that well and looked out of place. Gunners legend Ian Wright has defended the 34-year-old in the wake of the criticism, stating that he was facing an uphill battle when going head to head with Brazil’s fantastic attacking options.

When’s the Wilshere cut-off limit? 0

Posted on June 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The Jack Wilshere saga has taken more twists and turns than we’d care to admit, and along the way, many fans have become quite bitter towards the whole thing. While many Arsenal supporters still want to see the Englishman pulling on the red and white strip next season, it almost feels like there’s a certain level of resignation to the fact that he may well be leaving the club. As we now know courtesy of the latest update, it seems as if that fear is going to become a reality over the course of the next few weeks.

Jack Wilshere set to leave Arsenal 0

Posted on June 17, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Mirror, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to leave the Gunners on a free transfer after being told by Arsenal boss Unai Emery that he is unlikely to be a key player in his team.

Recent reports suggested that Wilshere was about to agree a new deal with the Gunners. However, it now seems he is ready to snub an offer from the north London club to leave as a free agent when his contract expires at the end of the month.
