Posted on June 01, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

David Luiz is keen on staying at Arsenal past the expiration of his current contract this month, according to agent Kia Joorabchian (via Sky Sports).

When the Gunners signed the Brazilian defender from Chelsea last year, it was widely reported that the contract he signed was a two-year one, but it has recently emerged that it was not so. It was only for 12 months. Arsenal had the option to extend the deal for another year, but they’ve let that option expire.

As another summer slowly creeps nearer, transfer rumours, mostly speculation of course, spread around by media outlets across Europe, are gradually overwhelming the screens of football fans. It’s one of the few things the Covid-19 pandemic hasn’t been able to put a stop to. Arsenal are a frequent subject, or rather target, of such stories.

In terms of potential departures, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the name mentioned the most, but the latest report – for the lack of a better (decent) word, suggest Alexandre Lacazette could be on his way out too. The story comes from Lacazette’s homeland of France, from L’Equipe.

Arsenal have been named among the Premier League clubs who are unwilling to meet Barcelona’s demands over a proposed loan move for Philippe Coutinho.

As reported by ESPN, Arsenal, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have all been offered the chance to sign the Brazilian playmaker for the 2020/21 season after Bayern Munich allowed their option to buy him for €120 million expire. In the current circumstances, which nobody could have foreseen a year ago when the loan deal was agreed, the Bavarians obviously felt the fee to be far too high and refused to trigger the option.

Arsenal have submitted a bid for Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey, according to Daily Express.

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal are confident that they will be able to extend the loan deal for Dani Ceballos past the date agreed for its expiration – June 30th.

The game has been completely suspended across Europe and at the moment, it’s hard to foresee when or how the 2019/20 season will end. In England, the suspension is currently set to last until the end of April at the earliest, and the Premier League clubs are scheduled to hold a meeting early next month to discuss the possibility of a ‘best-case scenario’ – the season being continued sometime in the middle of May. If that proves doable, the goal will be to finish the campaign before the end of June, but there is still a strong possibility of league games being played well into the summer.

Arsenal to bring back Malen? 0

Posted on March 09, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are once again being linked with a swoop to bring Donyell Malen from PSV Eindhoven back to the club.

Malen joined Arsenal’s U-18 outfit from Ajax’s U-17s back in 2015. He quickly progressed through the ranks, but in 2017 he was allowed to go back to Holland for only £500,000. He then joined PSV’s U-21 side and earned promotion to the first team a year later. His development continued apace, and he is now among the more exciting attacking prospects of European football. This season, he has made a total of 25 appearances, during which he scored 17 goals and laid on nine assists.

Plans afoot for summer overhaul? 0

Arsenal’s results have started gradually improving since Mikel Arteta took over from Unai Emery in December. Much more seems to be in place than before. There are clear ideas being implemented on the pitch, with every player working as hard as he can to fulfill the task given to him. However, it is the job of every manager to take constant looks at the squad at his disposal and ponder possible improvements; what needs to be strengthened, who are the players potentially not up to the standards required, would there be enough depth without them, and who could possibly take their places.

Arsenal are among the clubs interested in signing Feyenoord’s Orkun Kokcu this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Kokcu is a 19-year-old attacking midfielder, also capable of performing well in deeper roles, on both sides if necessary, though he prefers playing through the middle. He joined Feyenoord’s youth setup back in 2014, and was promoted to the first team four years later. This season he has racked up a total of 34 appearances so far (started almost all), scoring three times and laying on six assists. He is also a Turkey U-21 international, and is being considered by Everton as well. Kokcu has apparently been putting in impressive performances as his team fight to stay close to Ajax and AZ Alkmaar at the top of the table.
