Arsenal confident of Ceballos loan extension amid season uncertainty 0

Posted on March 25, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.

According to France Football magazine, Arsenal are interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain left-back Layvin Kurzawa this summer.

Kurzawa started his journey as a professional football player with AS Monaco back in 2010, when he was promoted from their youth setup to the first team. He was named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season in 2013/14, and a year later he made his move to PSG where he has won three Ligue 1 titles, three Coupe de France trophies, as well as three French League Cups. He has 13 caps with France under his belt.

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.

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.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Juventus are determined to keep hold of defender Merih Demiral and have big plans for his future, amid interest from clubs around Europe with Arsenal leading the chase.

The Gunners secured the services of Pablo Mari for the rest of the season, and should the Spaniard pass his half-season audition, he should remain at the Emirates permanently when the loan expires. Nonetheless, it seems the club are looking to further boost Mikel Arteta’s options at the back by signing young quality players, players who would be able to stick around for a very long time.

Arsenal considering Raul Jimenez as Lacazette replacement? 0

There has been plenty of speculation when it comes to the future of Alexadre Lacazette lately. There were reports claiming he was unhappy and that his agent had been sounding out potential suitors, and more recently some insinuations about an alleged clause in his contract which would allow him to break away if the team fails to qualify for the Champions League at the end of this season.

Lacazette bemused by release clause reports 0

Alexandre Lacazette has played down speculations about an agreement between his representatives and Arsenal about his alleged right to leave this summer if the team fails to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal are currently playing their third campaign in a row in the Europa League. Having been beaten by eventual winners Atletico Madrid in the semi-final in 2017/18, the Gunners made the next step last season and reached the final, only to fall there to Chelsea. This time they’ll be looking to take the next step again, which would of course, mean to win the trophy and reach the Champions League down that path. It might prove a more realistic road than to aim for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Arsenal reopen Aubameyang talks 0

Arsenal have reopened the talks over a new contract with the representatives of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to the Mirror.

The Gabonese is tied to the club until the summer of 2021, which means he will enter the final 12 months of the deal this summer if a new one isn’t signed by then. That could force Arsenal to seriously consider selling their arguably best player at the moment, and that is never good for a club’s image. There were talks over a new deal during the first half of the season, until reports came from Spain claiming the 31-year-old had put them on hold ahead of the winter transfer window, until he learned how serious Barcelona are about their intention to sign him.

Arsenal face battle to keep Saka 0

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Arsenal face a battle to keep hold of Bukayo Saka this summer.

The 18-year-old broke onto the scene practically immediately upon introduction to the first team. Deployed a few times in his preferred position on the left wing by Unai Emery, he was asked to do the best he can on the left defensive flank in the absence of both Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.
