Arsenal interested in signing Manchester United star 0

Posted on November 15, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal are reportedly interested in Manchester United’s midfielder Marouane Fellaini, with their Premier League rivals supposedly struggling to tie the Belgian down to a new contract.

Arenal were beaten 3-1 by Manchester City in their last Premier League game as they lost more ground on the league leaders.

Indeed, they are now 12 points shy of City at the top, while they are also three points short of Chelsea in fourth-place. Liverpool’s win over West Ham meant that Arsene Wenger’s men fell into sixth-place, sealing an incredibly tough weekend for the Gunners.

Do Arsenal have any excuses this season? 0

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.

Arsenal rekindle interest in Arda Turan amid Mesut Ozil speculation 0

Growing reports that German midfielder Mesut Ozil is on his way out of Arsenal and to his former boss Jose Mourinho at Manchester United have forced Gunners to make plans in order to replace the influential midfielder.

Mesut Ozil is not getting any closer to signing a new contract extension at the Emirates and it was the Independent who reported that Manchester United are confident of landing the World Cup winner on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Ozil’s departure would leave a gaping hole in Arsenal’s attacking midfielder position and Arsene Wenger will be forced to make a move in the market to find a proper replacement for his team’s biggest star.

According to Sport Bild, Arsenal have competition from Barcelona and Manchester United for Leon Goretzka’s signature. Bayern Munich have also been linked with the Schalke midfielder recently and were previously rumoured to have agreed a pre-contract deal. However, such claims turned out to be false.

The German international helped his country win the Confederations Cup in the summer and will be hoping for more opportunities with Joachim Lowe by continuing to impress at club level. Goretzka looks to be running his contract with Schalke without any plans to extend his stay at the Veltins-Arena, so he’ll have a host of suitors in January and next summer.

Things appear to be getting rather complicated in the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga.

The Chilean superstar had been pursued by Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window but the Citizens’ £60 million attempt ended up being unsuccessful since Arsenal failed to sign a replacement before the end of the window.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated with Arsenal’s apparent incompetence and is expected to make a fresh approach in order to land the 28-year-old in January. However, the situation appears to has changed dramatically as the Manchester City boss is now facing competition from his fierce rival Jose Mourinho.

Arsenal a decent bet to win the Europa League at odds of 8/1 0

Posted on September 11, 2017 by David Nugent

Everybody connected with Arsenal were understandably unhappy at missing out on the Champions League places last season and the Gunners playing Europa League football this season.

The Europa League is generally considered the Champions League poor relationship by Premier League clubs. Many English teams have fielded weakened teams and showed the competition a general apathy.

However, last season Manchester United may just have bucked a trend. In truth, United boss Jose Mourinho did not take the competition that seriously. That was until the Red Devils got to the latter stages and it became apparent United could win the competition. It has to be said the Portuguese boss did select pretty strong starting line-ups in the competition.

Manchester United and Liverpool also keen on Paris Saint-Germain’s Julian Draxler 0

According to the Mirror, Manchester United and Liverpool have joined Arsenal in the race for Paris Saint-Germain and Germany forward Julian Draxler. The 23-year-old has told the Ligue 1 side he wants to leave this summer and has a host of clubs reportedly interested in his services.

Arsenal have been linked with the forward for some time, although manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted he has a task to trim the playing squad rather than add to it. The Gunners are overstocked, with 33 players competing for 25 first-team spots, so it’s more likely they will be making sales than bringing in more players this summer.

Manchester United interested in Monaco’s Thomas Lemar 0

According to Football.London, Manchester United are keen to sign AS Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, a player who has been linked all summer with Arsenal. The Gunners have had three bids rejected by the Ligue 1 champions for the 21-year-old, but United may have more luck given they’re able to offer considerable more for his signature than Arsenal.

Arsenal had an initial bid of around £30m-£35m turned down by Monaco, before being equally unsuccessful with a £40m offer. And the Metro reported the Gunners had a £45m bid turned down at the end of July. Manchester United are now going to try their hand, with the winger’s asking price believed to be more than £60m.

Manchester United linked with Arsenal-target Arda Turan 0

Posted on August 15, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to AS via talkSPORT, Manchester United are interested in Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, a player who has been linked with Arsenal throughout the summer. The 30-year-old is expected to exit the Nou Camp as a result of a lack of playing time and Jose Mourinho is reportedly offering Turan a chance to resurrect his career elsewhere in Europe.

Former club Galatasaray are also believed to be keen on the ex-Atletico Madrid attacking-midfielder, but Manchester United might be considering Turan as they’ve so far struggled to land Ivan Perisic. Turan, while not boasting excessive pace on the wing, is a creative midfielder who can play somewhat in between the lines. It’s why Arsenal were interested but so far no deal has materialised from any suitor.

Arsenal could lose out on Martial after reported Inter interest 0

Posted on July 19, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer, but not to Arsenal, according to Sky Italia via Football365. The French international struggled for form last season and looked to be on his way out of the club as a result. Arsenal were heavily linked, but now Inter Milan are the latest side in the race for his signature.

The player’s cousin, who is a journalist based in Paris, said on the rumours: “I can confirm Inter’s interest in Anthony. However, he’s focusing solely on Manchester United. His thoughts are fixated on pre-season with United.” Martial, 21, scored just four Premier League goals in 25 appearances in 2016/17, finding himself out of the matchday squad too often.
