Posted on October 18, 2017 by Milos Markovic

The British media has it that Arsenal have stepped in a three-way battle with Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea for a highly-rated Barcelona talent Abel Ruiz.

The 17-year-old Ruiz is a versatile forward who can play on either flank or in the heart of attack and is eyed as one of the biggest talents emerging from the Catalan club.

Contracted to Barcelona until 2019, Abel Ruiz is said to be under a £3 million buy-out clause. The affordability of such an exciting talent has alarmed the Premier League big guns who are vying for Ruiz’s signature, the Mirror has reported.

For the last few years, Arsenal have always been missing a key element of their side. A few years ago it was a goalkeeper, then it was a world-class striker, and then it was a solid defence. For so many years they have disappointed their fans with paltry displays across the season that has ultimately seen them miss out on the Champions League for the current season.

Following consecutive defeats against Stoke and Liverpool, it seemed as though Arsenal’s old ghosts were haunting them again. They were already falling behind the top sides and their weaknesses had been exposed, both in their profligacy against Stoke and in their woeful defending against Liverpool. Another season of disappointment beckoned.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola says he’s unsure if he will make another approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens in the new year, reports talkSPORT.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen in the wintertime or next season. He’s an Arsenal player. Of course we were interested in him (but) at the end Arsenal decided not to sell him. So, all the best for Alexis. I know him from Barcelona. And that’s all. Sometimes the deals work, sometimes not,” he said.

The summer transfer window has only been shut but the story drags on.

Alexis Sanchez is still one of Arsenal’s hottest topics after it has been revealed that Manchester City failed in a transfer Deadline Day offer worth £55 million plus £5 million in add-ons for the Chilean.

The Gunners were keen to let the disgruntled star leave for City but only if they manage to find a proper replacement. Having failed in their own bid to land AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar on the last day of the market, Arsenal pulled the plug on any potential deal involving Alexis Sanchez.

As expected on transfer deadline day, stories involving Arsenal players are doing the rounds. One of the main stories surrounds Chilean star Alexis Sanchez. According to Sky Sports, the Gunners are not interested in selling the former Barcelona star to Manchester City in a cash only deal.

Reports suggest that Arsenal were interested in doing a deal with the Citizens that involved England international winger Raheem Sterling. However, the noises coming out of Manchester suggest that City boss Pep Guardiola is unwilling to allow the former Liverpool star to leave before the deadline.
