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.

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.

According to different sources, Arsenal are considering moves for Valencia goalkeeper Neto and Gremio defender Walter Kannemann.

As per Spanish outlet Marca, the club are on the lookout for a replacement for the retiring Petr Cech. Although David Ospina is set to return to the Emirates following a loan spell with Serie A side Napoli, manager Unai Emery sees the 29-year-old Valencia shot-stopper as the perfect candidate to compete with Bernd Leno for the place between the posts in the future.

According to the Standard, all six of last season’s Premier League top-six are monitoring the situation of Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser. The Scottish international’s contract expires in the summer of 2020 and noises coming out of the stars camp suggest that he wants to move on.

Arsenal have of course been heavily linked with a move for Fraser, who the Cherries rated in the £30million-bracket.

Competition for Fraser

The notion of all the top-six being interested in signing Fraser is a strange one. The winger enjoyed an impressive campaign for Bournemouth, scoring seven goals and producing 14 assists in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are willing to use Calum Chambers, Reiss Nelson and Carl Jenkinson as makeweights in a deal to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha. Reports suggest that the Ivory Coast international is rated in the £80million bracket.

The purse strings are set to be tight again at Arsenal this summer, so using players as a makeweight may prove to be the answer for the Gunners.

Zaha would be a good signing for Arsenal

The Gunners are reportedly looking to bring in a wide man this summer. Zaha is developing into a very dangerous attacking player and has been the focal point of the Eagles attack for much of the season.

Arsenal seem to be actively looking for additions to their fragile back line, which conceded 51 goals in the 2018/19 Premier League season.

However, while it seems that an experienced, defensive leader of top quality is what the team needs, they are reportedly interested in the 18-year-old William Saliba from Saint-Etienne, according to Goal.com. Not only that, but the report names the youngster as the club’s “main defensive target”.

Having been linked with him a few years ago, Arsenal are once again reportedly interested in signing Kostas Manolas of AS Roma.

The defender started his professional career with AEK Athens in 2009 and moved to Olympiacos three years later. He arrived to Rome in 2014, and has so far played 209 games and scored nine goals in their shirt in all competitions. The most important goal of the nine was undoubtedly Roma’s third against Barcelona last season as it dispatched the Catalans from the Champions League in the quarterfinals.
