Arteta looks ahead to Arsenal’s clash with West Ham 0

Posted on September 19, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal are absolutely flying to start off the new Premier League season, from the positive signing of Gabriel to beating Fulham 3-0 to getting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign a new contract with the club. This weekend, they’ll be attempting to keep that positive run of form going when they take part in their second straight London derby of the campaign – this time against West Ham United.

Mikel Arteta took part in his usual pre-match press conference prior to the game against the Hammers, and it’s safe to say that a whole lot of topics came up.

Posted on September 18, 2020 by Harry Kettle

While Arsenal may have gotten off to a flying start in the Premier League last weekend against Fulham, there are still a handful of issues that need to be resolved. A few of those problems stem from injuries and while the Gunners do have a near enough fully fit squad, there are two players that are still working their way back up to full fitness.

Pablo Mari
Left ankle. Sustained significant sprain to ankle ligaments during Manchester City (a) on June 17.

Latest update on Pablo:
•    Now running outside and continues strengthening programme.
•    Aiming to return to full training by the end of September.

Kolasinac in Leverkusen talks

After goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who left to join Aston Villa, Sead Kolasinac could be the next senior player to leave the Emirates in this transfer window. According to PA Sport, the Bosnian left back is currently in talks with Bayer Leverkusen about a proposed return to Germany.

Kolasinac gradually lost his place on the left defensive flank to Kieran Tierney, and though Mikel Arteta has utilized him in a back three, some howling mistakes clearly indicated that he can’t be a long-term solution there either.

Emiliano Martinez opens up on departure decision and Arsenal reaction 0

Emiliano Martinez has left Arsenal and joined Aston Villa, it has been officially confirmed by both clubs.

The 28-year-old Argentinian joined Arsenal reserves 10 years ago, but most of his time on the club’s books was spent on numerous loans. Last summer, he returned from his temporary spell at Reading to act as the first deputy to regular number one choice Bernd Leno, and when the German injured his ligaments in a clash with Brighton and Hove Albion’s Neal Maupay on June 25, he finally got a proper chance to show what he can do.

The Carabao Cup question 0

Posted on September 17, 2020 by Harry Kettle

It’s been confirmed by the club that Arsenal will officially begin their Carabao Cup journey next Wednesday when they lock horns with fellow Premier League side Leicester City. While some fans are excited to see some fringe players start or play some kind of role, which seems like what is going to happen, others have questioned whether or not the Carabao Cup should even be happening this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re definitely in the camp of believing the Carabao Cup shouldn’t really exist in its current form for the 2020/21 campaign, and we’re not entirely sure why they’ve gone ahead with it (well, we do – money).

Aubameyang praises Arsenal fans after signing new contract 0

Posted on September 16, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s confirmation that he’d be signing a new contract with Arsenal Football Club is about as close as you can get to a current player feeling like a new signing. He’s said that he wants to try and become a legend at the Emirates, and based on recent evidence, we’d say that’s true.

The Gabon international spoke with Gunners legend Ian Wright shortly after confirming that he’d be staying in North London.

“The fans are everything you know, they are everything,” Auba told Ian Wright.

The day has come, it has finally happened. After much consideration, deliberation, and even some teasing, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has put pen on paper on a brand new three-year contract with Arsenal, the club have officially confirmed.

As you know, Aubameyang joined the Gunners from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018, and he jointly won the Premier League golden boot (together with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah) in his first full season at the Emirates.

Arsenal and Torino in Torreira talks 0

Arsenal are in talks with Torino over a potential transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to Sky Sports. The move being discussed is a season-long loan with a view to a permanent one next summer.

The defensive midfielder has been linked with departure before. AC Milan were credited with interest on several occasions, and Fiorentina are still interested. He joined the Gunners two years ago from Sampdoria for a reported fee of £26 million, and though he initially looked promising under Unai Emery, he hasn’t been able to get back on the right track at the club following the arrival of Mikel Arteta at the helm. He made a total of 29 appearances in the Premier League in 2019/20, but only 17 times as a part of the starting XI.

Aubameyang teases new Arsenal contract 0

Posted on September 15, 2020 by Harry Kettle

One of the biggest stories in recent months for Arsenal Football Club has been the ongoing story of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and whether or not he will sign a new contract with the club. After much speculation, it finally seems as if we’re closing in on a decision one way or the other.

The Gabon international has posted an emoji of an hourglass on Twitter, seemingly indicating that we’re going to be finding out more about his future in the next few days – or potentially even hours.

For now, all Arsenal fans can do is sit back and hope that this isn’t just another negotiating tactic.

Arsenal transfer rumours: Martinez, Lacazette, Edouard 0

Posted on September 14, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

With several weeks of the transfer window left to run, transfer reports and rumours are still coming thick. Let’s look at what is being said about the Gunners.

Emiliano Martinez to join Aston Villa

When Bernd Leno picked up an injury in the unexpected defeat away to Brighton and Hove Albion last season, Emiliano Martinez stepped in and did a wonderful job between the posts. He was so good that some suggested that head coach Mikel Arteta should have given serious consideration to making him his number one choice ahead of Leno, but that was never likely to happen.
