Would Ross Barkley be a worthwhile signing for Arsenal? 0

Posted on June 22, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Metro, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all interested in signing Everton playmaker Ross Barkley this summer.

With the futures of attacking midfielders Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in doubt, a new attacking midfielder may well be on Arsenal’s shopping list this summer.

Highly-rated but highly inconsistent

When Ross Barkley first broke into the Everton first-team, he was hailed as the future England number ten. However, things have not quite turned out like that for the Wavertree-born star.

Encouraging piece of news is coming from Turkey, with reports claiming that Barcelona star Arda Turan is close to signing for Arsenal.

The 30-year-old had been linked with a move to the Emirates before he even joined Barcelona and the player himself spoke in high regard of the north London club on several occasions in the past.

Creative midfielder has endured a frustrating spell at the Spanish giants and was reportedly given the green light to leave Camp Nou in order to get his career back on track.

Arsene Wenger signing a new two-year deal at Arsenal has firmly split the public opinion down the middle.

And while Wenger’s supporters will be quick to heap praise on Arsenal board and tap the club official on the back, critics will be cursing their faith. The club however is thought to be preparing a plan to win more votes to the ‘In’ party with a reported £100 million transfer kitty which would be presented to Arsenal boss ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

The Gunners are expected to invest heavily into bolstering their squad in the upcoming market.

Can Arsene Wenger inspire anything but déjà vu at Arsenal? 0

So there we have it veteran Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has signed a two-year extension with the club. It was hardly a surprise was it? There was always a feeling the Frenchman was not yet ready to leave the north London club.

As I stated in yesterday’s article Wenger is part of the furniture at Arsenal. Unfortunately to me he is like that old comfy chair that used to be lovely when it was new but its springs are now sticking out cursing discomfort in the backside.

Whether Arsenal fans like it or not, the Frenchman will probably be the Gunners boss for the next two years.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil impressed in Tuesday’s 2-0 victory over already-relegated Sunderland, creating more chances, being fouled the most times, making more touches and whipping in more crosses than any of his teammates. The former Real Madrid man has come in for a lot of criticism for his inconsistent form this season but showed he’s still fight for Arsenal’s top-four hopes in the run-in.

Arsenal are back in the hunt again for Champions League football for next season. A 4-1 win at Stoke on Saturday evening kept the Gunners in the running for a place in Europe’s elite competition. A lot hinges on Liverpool’s visit to West Ham later today.

However, the Merseysiders failing to win in the capital will give Arsenal the advantage in the race for a top-four finish this season. The question is will Arsene Wenger and his team be forgiven if the Gunners make the top-four?

Arsenal kept their hopes of Champions League qualification for next season alive with a 4-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday evening.

Arsenal had the first real threat on goal on five minutes, as Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland saved well at the feet of Alexis Sanchez. The referee’s assistant raised the flag anyway, so the effort would not have counted, but nevertheless a good save from the ‘keeper.

The Gunners threatened again on nine minutes. Mesut Ozil floated a corner into the area that Shkodran Mustafi glanced towards goal, only for Butland to tip over the bar superbly.

Arsenal playmaker’s future with Gunners has been the hot topic over the past couple of months, but Mesut Ozil has played down talks about possible departure at the end of the season.

The Germany international has endured a mixed season with Arsenal, which saw his efforts get heavily criticized on more than one occasion once again.

Arsene Wenger’s charges have been struggling to find pace and catch up the leading pack in the Premier League this season, whereas their international exploits culminated with an embarrassing Champions League elimination at the hands of Bayern Munich.

According to reports coming from the Daily Mail, Arsenal have joined the chase for Everton star midfielder Ross Barkley.

The Gunners are thought to be prepared to rival Tottenham Hotspur in bid to land the highly-rated 23-year-old England international, who is tipped to leave Everton at the end of the season.

Barkley only has one year left in his current deal with the Toffees and is reportedly unsure over his future with the club. The midfielder was dropped from the first team in a match against Swansea on Saturday and appears to be well aware of the fact Everton would be willing to sell him if he refuses to sign a new deal with the Goodison-based outfit.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has unsurprisingly emerged as a summer transfer target for Spanish giants Barcelona, who are once again linked with the German genius following the winter flirtations.

The 28-year-old Mesut Ozil is about to head into the final twelve months of his Arsenal deal, but the latest developments at the club have sparked plenty of rumours linking the German international with a summer swoop away from Emirates.

Mesut Ozil made 38 appearances for Gunners this season, adding 11 goals and providing as many assists along the way, but the German has repeatedly been on the receiving end of criticism throughout the season as well.
