Posted on September 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

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.

Howedes, now of Juventus, was keen to leave former side Schalke in the summer after being stripped of his captaincy and ended up joining the Serie A giants on a season-long loan. In addition to Arsenal and Leicester, the 29-year-old was believed to have interest from AS Roma too.

Arsenal were one of four clubs who enquired about the availability of Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller, reports Sport Bild. The German international struggled for form under manager Carlo Ancelotti last season, scoring just five goals in the Bundesliga, leading to suitors trying their hand at procuring his signature.

In addition to Arsenal being keen on Muller, Chelsea, Liverpool and Serie A giants Juventus have also been linked and are believed to have made an enquiry, which was rebuffed by the player who is keen to stay at the Allianz Arena.

Arsenal could sell Mustafi with Inter and Juventus interested 0

Posted on August 27, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi could be sold just 12 months after his arrival at the Emirates Stadium. Serie A giants Inter Milan and Juventus are the two sides closely linked with his signature, although the former are trying to sign the centre-back on loan. Juventus have yet to make an official approach.

It would be a big shock to see the German international leave Arsenal so soon after joining, as it would leave the Gunners very thin in defence. Laurent Koscielny has only just returned from injury, Per Mertesacker has been left out of the starting lineup so far this season, while Rob Holding has been dropped entirely.

According to the Mirror, Arsenal will fight off interest from Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger having the support of the board. City are believed to be lining up a £70m bid for the 28-year-old’s signature but the Gunners aren’t looking to sell for any price.

With Alexis having 12 months on his deal with Arsenal this summer, a number of clubs were keen on his signature – Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Manchester City, as well as Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, City are the last club standing, with manager Pep Guardiola keen to renew acquaintances with the Chilean international.

Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny could be finally set to leave Arsenal in a £10m deal that will see him join Italian champions Juventus, according to the Guardian. Talks are reported to be at an advanced stage and Szczesny is now expected to complete a move to Turin.

Serie A champions Juventus are one step closer to hiring the out-of-sorts Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

The Polish shot stopper spent last two seasons on at AS Roma and was expected to rejoin Arsenal, but has been left out of Gunners’ squad for pre-season tour of Australia. Arsene Wenger and his players jetted off Down Under on Sunday night as they prepare to face Sydney FC and Sydney Wanderers over the next two weeks.

Arsenal will then fly off to China where they will take on Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in Shanghai and lock horns with the Premier League champions Chelsea in Beijing.
