According to the Daily Express, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Italian giants Juventus. The news will come as no surprise to anybody, as the move has been mooted for the past month or so.
Arsenal were reportedly attempting to sell the midfielder to the Bianconeri in the January transfer window to claw some money back for the midfielder. However, that was always an unlikely prospect.
Ramsey such a frustrating player
I have to admit I find Aaron Ramsey such a frustrating player to watch. The Wales international has undoubted talent and can be such an influential player. However, he has a tendency to be inconsistent. .......Read more here.....

According to various newspaper reports, including the Independent, Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is set to quit his position at the club. The German has been in the position just over a year after arriving at the club in November 2017 from Dortmund. Reports suggest that former Gunners midfielder Edu
A transfer supremo
Mislintat was labelled as some sort of transfer supremo when he arrived at the club. He built an excellent reputation for himself at Dortmund, helping to spot many of the stars of Jurgen Klopp’s team that thrived earlier in the decade. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is looking to offload German playmaker Mesut Ozil to raise funds for new signings according to the Daily Mirror. Ozil has not played for the Gunners since Boxing Day and reportedly, the former Germany international is out-of-favour with Emery.
Long-running stories of Ozil exit
Since the summer arrival of Unai Emery as Arsenal boss, there have been almost constant stories about the attacking midfielder not being his type of player. .......Read more here.....

According to the Mirror, Arsenal could allow midfielder Aaron Ramsey to join new club Juventus in the January transfer window for a fee of £18million. The Welshman is out of contract in north London and has reportedly already agreed on terms of a deal with the Bianconeri to join as a free agent in the summer. However, Arsenal are reported to be willing to let the midfielder go early. However, he will not leave on the cheap.
Arsenal needs the money
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has recently stated that the Gunners have no money to make permanent signings, so any signing this month will only be on temporary deals. This is definitely not what Gunners fans will have wanted to hear. .......Read more here.....

According to the Mirror, Denis Suarez has informed Barcelona that he would like to move to Arsenal this month.
The attacking midfielder, well capable of performing well on either flank or through the middle, had reportedly been told by his current club back in December to start searching for a new club, as they had no place for him in their team. The report sparked interest in his services from clubs around Europe, and it was immediately clear he’d have no shortage of offers. Now it seems he has chosen Arsenal as his preferred destination, and he wants the switch to happen now, rather than in the summer. .......Read more here.....

According to Spanish publication Don Balon, Arsenal are pondering a big money bid for Bayern Munich playmaker James Rodriguez. The Colombian is currently on-loan at the Bavarian club from Real Madrid.
The German giants have an option to purchase the player on a permanent deal. However, Bayern look unlikely to decide to exercise their right to extend the playmaker’s stay in Bavaria beyond the summer.
The 27-year-old has endured a mixed spell with the German giants. Reportedly, the player wished to open talks with Bayern about his long-term future. .......Read more here.....

As one of my colleagues wrote earlier, Arsenal are reportedly close to completing the £14million signing of Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez. The Spaniard has struggled for first-team minutes in the Catalan capital.
No shame in failing to make it at Barcelona
Barcelona are one of the biggest clubs to world football, both in profile and their success on the pitch. Along with Spanish rivals Real Madrid, they are a step ahead of the big clubs in other countries.
As such, they tend to sign whatever player want. A case in point was the Catalan giants signing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool, despite the Reds resisting their overtures for a short while. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal are very close to agreeing a deal to sign Denis Suarez from Barcelona, according to Sky Sports.
Suarez will have some experience of living and playing in England as his first professional contract was with Manchester City back in 2011. However, he only appeared twice for the current Premier League title holders, once in the FA Cup and the League Cup each, before moving to Barcelona in 2013. There, he initially played for their “B” side and made 36 appearances and scored seven goals. In the deal which saw Ivan Rakitić join the Catalan giants in 2014, Suarez was sent on a two-year loan to Sevilla, where he worked with current Arsenal boss Unai Emery and won the Europa League with him. .......Read more here.....

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal boss Unai Emery has identified Torino centre-back Nicolas Nkoulou as a possible transfer target for the January transfer window.
The Gunners have suffered from defensive problems for a good while now. Their attempts to solve the problem last summer saw Sokratis and Stephen Lichtsteiner arrive in north London. However, in truth, neither player was a massive leap in quality to the players already in situ at the club. Emery’s side has conceded 31 times this season, which for a team chasing a top-four spot is a massive amount of goals. .......Read more here.....

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are set to battle it out with London rivals Chelsea for the signature of Roma wonderkid Cengiz Under. A fee of around £54million has been mooted. The youngster cost Roma just £12million when he joined them from Istanbul Basaksehir back in 2017.
Clubs already circling Under
The young Turkish star has impressed for the Giallorossi this season and is reportedly attracting the interest of a number of big European clubs, and Chelsea!
The likes of German giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have both been strongly linked with moves for the attacking midfielder. However, the Bundesliga pair are unlikely to be able to compete with the financial muscle of the two English clubs. .......Read more here.....
