Arsenal legend linked with the Real Betis job 0

Posted on May 26, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, La Liga outfit Real Betis have targeted Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as their new head coach. Reportedly, the Andalusian’s had offered the job to Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez. However, the former Real Madrid boss rejected the offer, as talks continue between the Spaniard and the north east club.

Benitez is in in-demand after steadying the Newcastle ship on a limited budget. It seems that Betis are now looking at Henry as a successor to Quique Seiten, who rather bizarrely lost his job at the end of the season.

Arsenal will bid for Ryan Fraser of AFC Bournemouth after the Europa League final, according to TalkSPORT.

The upcoming final of UEFA’s second-tier competition is huge – a chance for a European trophy, but perhaps even more as a chance to beat a path into next season’s Champions League. And apparently, having failed to finish in the top four in the Premier League, the club will wait to see where exactly they play next season before making any concrete moves in the transfer market.

Umtiti linked as Laurent Koscielny’s replacement at Arsenal 0

According to talkSPORT, Arsenal veteran French centre-back Laurent Koscielny could exit the club this summer. The 33-year-old has just a year left on his contract and reportedly the Gunners could sell the defender if he does not sign a new deal this summer.

The same report also claims that the Gunners could target Barcelona’s French centre-back Samuel Umtiti as his compatriot’s replacement.

Koscielny’s future in doubt

When Koscielny is fit the experienced centre-back is Arsenal best defender. However, there have been doubts over the Frenchman’s future at the club since last summer, when he was reportedly considering his future.

According to the Express, Everton are the favourites to sign Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck this summer. The report claims that the Merseysider’s are prepared to hand the 28-year-old a contract worth around £100,000 per-week this summer.

Welbeck is of course out of contract with the Gunners this summer and will leave the club on a free transfer.

Endured an injury-hit stint at Arsenal

Danny Welbeck’s Arsenal career has been injury plagued. The England international has spent five years with the north London club but has never really managed to nail down a regular starting spot at the club.

Which international tournament to watch? 0

The summer is almost upon us, ladies and gentlemen, but unlike last year that doesn’t mean we’re going to get World Cup football. I know, we’re as sad about it as you are, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. The common thought process is that all forms of international football stem from either the World Cup or the European Championships – but that isn’t the case. This summer we’ll get to see a series of tournaments and nations battling it out, but in a different kind of environment.

Potential Premier League opponents 0

The Premier League season has already come to an end, but the Championship season still has one more vitally important game to go before preparations can start for the summer transfer window. We already know that Norwich City and Sheffield United will be returning to the top flight of English football, and they’ll be welcomed back with open arms by most. Aside from that, though, the 2019 Championship play-off final also needs to be decided – and it will be on Monday when Aston Villa face Derby County for the right to play in the Premier League once again.

Should Petr Cech start the Europa Cup final for Arsenal? 0

Posted on May 23, 2019 by David Nugent

As I wrote yesterday’s article about Petr Cech’s return to former club Chelsea this summer as sporting director, I realised the gravity of the situation ahead of the Europa League final next Wednesday between Arsenal and the Blues.

Petr Cech is only human

It seems almost certain that Petr Cech is returning to his former club. There is nothing wrong with that, he enjoyed the best years of his football career at Chelsea. He obviously has a great affinity with the club from south west London.

Zaha would be an interesting move for Arsenal 0

The transfer rumours have been flying around left, right and center over the course of the last few days in the wake of the summer transfer window officially opening. Now that the window is open, as you can imagine, there will be a series of different rumours with much, much speculation regarding who is going to be going where. Arsenal aren’t going to be immune from all of that, and hopefully, they’re going to wind up being busier than most in the window itself.

We love the new kits 0

Posted on May 23, 2019 by Harry Kettle

There are a lot of elements of the beautiful game that some fans think don’t matter, and that’s okay. A lot of people believe what happens on the pitch is the most important factor, some think it’s all about the fans, and some just want to watch the transfer rumours fly in every summer and during ever January transfer window. It’s a neverending process of ‘back and forths’, but today, we’re here to talk about Arsenal’s kits for next season.

Will Baku be ruled out for future competitions? 0

Posted on May 22, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The 2019 Europa League final is going to serve as a great showcase of two of English football’s finest clubs, and more specifically, two of London’s. It’s the kind of competition that receives a bad reputation because it isn’t the Champions League, when in reality, the final is almost always contested between some of the best clubs in Europe. This year will be no different as Arsenal prepare to square off against Chelsea – with the game taking place in Baku.
