According to TalkSPORT, Arsenal could rival Liverpool for Barcelona’s highly-rated forward Ousmane Dembele. The Catalan giants are reportedly ready to sell the forward for a fee in the region of £85million.

Struggled at Barcelona

Dembele is regarded as one of the best up and coming young players in the world game. The 21-year-old only joined Barcelona in the summer of 2017 from Dortmund in a deal that could potentially rise to a fee of an eye-watering 130million euros.

We’ve spoken about it before and we’ll speak about it until we’re blue in the face: the international break is almost over, and domestic football is almost upon us. It’s a wonderful thing to behold, but we can’t allow the excitement to cloud over the fact that this is going to be a very stressful point of the campaign for Arsenal.

The Premier League is set to return to our television screens this weekend, and that’s something that will actively excite the masses – or, at least, it should. Many football fans have a love-hate relationship with the international break and while we can understand that to an extent, that doesn’t mean that we don’t appreciate how fun the UEFA Nations League has been. Alas, with that disclaimer out of the way, we do need to fanboy a little bit about seeing Arsenal return to action.

Is Eric Bailly really a solution to the Gunners defensive vulnerability? 1

Posted on November 18, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, among other publications, Arsenal are set to battle it out with north London rivals Tottenham for the signature of Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.

The Ivorian’s future at Old Trafford is in doubt after failing to start in the Premier League for the Red Devils since gameweek two of the campaign. Reportedly, the defender is set for talks with United over his future.

Promising start but has struggled of late

Bailly looked like the real deal in his debut campaign at United after joining the Red Devils from Villarreal in the summer of 2016. He looked strong and pacey, which are two attributes needed to be a top centre-back.

Arsenal will not break away from the English Premier League, despite showing an interest in joining a European Super League in the near future.

News that discussions over a 16-team Super League were in the pipeline has raised many questions. German football magazine Der Spiegel had claimed that English clubs, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal were all set to sign up for the aforementioned Super League.

Any formation of the reported European Super League would seriously interfere with the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League.

Brazil and PSG superstar Neymar has backed former boss Unai Emery to bring success to Arsenal. The Spaniard managed the forward in the French capital and has a high opinion of the former Valencia boss.

Emery will bring good things to Arsenal

Xhaka back to Basel? 0

“Definitely! My career started here and there it is a goal, actually, my dream to return someday. That certainly won’t be the case at 28, I’ll be honest. It’ll probably be more like Alex Frei, who’s the best example of how to do it. He came back once he was in his thirties, but still performed and helped FCB win a few titles. Of course, the expectations are high when you come back again, but it is clearly a dream”.

Bayern want Ramsey? 0

Posted on November 16, 2018 by Harry Kettle

We’re revisiting one of our favourite subjects in the whole world (can you sense the sarcasm?) – yes, we’re referring to Aaron Ramsey. The Gunners midfielder has had what many would describe as an interesting journey throughout the course of the last twelve months at the Emirates, and people would interpret the word ‘interesting’ in many different ways. Essentially, the Welshman has been embroiled in a contract dispute with the club, and it feels like it’s never going to end.

In his interview with Basellandschaftliche Zeitung, Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka has expressed his desire to move back to Basel at the twilight of his career.

The midfielder started his career there and played two seasons for the club from his hometown before moving to Borussia Monchengladbach in 2012. He arrived to the Emirates four years later as a marquee signing under Arsene Wenger, and so far he has played more than 100 games in an Arsenal shirt. Apart from that, he has racked up 68 caps as a Swiss international despite being only 26 years old.

Stewart Robson: Arsenal right to let Ramsey go 0

As the departure of Aaron Ramsey after a decade of service to Arsenal approaches, slowly but at this point inevitably, the situation doesn’t seem likely to stop attracting the public eye for a long time yet. The latest report suggests the Welshman is set to join Bayern Munich on a free transfer once his contract finally expires at the end of the season.

It is widely known, even the player himself confirmed it, that negotiations took place and an agreement on a new deal was close being achieved, when the club suddenly withdrew their offer and left the table, apparently hinting that there wouldn’t be another one.
