Maitland-Niles on Arsenal sale list 0

Posted on May 14, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reportedly made a list, consisting of 12 names, for whose services they will be considering offers this summer. Most of those names remain in the domain of guesswork as far as public knowledge goes, but The Telegraph claim that one of them is Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The 23-year-old is a product of the club’s Academy, and since earning first-team promotion, most of his 121 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal have been out wide, on either flank as need commanded. However, the player himself prefers a role in centre midfield, and that’s where he’s mostly been playing through his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion this season.

Arsenal are not interested in signing Tariq Lamptey from Brighton and Hove Albion anymore, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Many supporters were thrilled with the prospect of seeing the 20-year-old holding an Arsenal shirt this summer, and it’s not really difficult to see why. Lamptey is a highly talented player, full of energy as he runs up and down the right flank, and with the departure of Hector Bellerin reportedly looming, he was seen as a good, long-term replacement. However, it seems that the club have taken his name off the list of transfer targets for the summer, despite preparing to enter the market for a right-back.

Ever since reports claiming Dani Ceballos would leave Arsenal and return to Real Madrid when his loan deal expires, rumours linking the Gunners with what seems like every central midfielder out there have been popping up like mushrooms after rain. Rangers’ Glen Kamara has featured in many of them, and he’s recently been joined on the back pages by Yves Bissouma and Sander Berge.

Speaking to the press ahead of Arsenal’s short trip to Stamford Bridge on Thursday, manager Mikel Arteta answered questions about the club’s transfer plans for the upcoming summer window among other things, but he seemed very careful not to reveal too much at this point.

“We’ve been sitting down the whole year,” he said. ”

“We’ve been in constant communication and things will change, some things will stick to the plan that we already had and some other things will come out. But we sit down very, very regularly to talk about those things.”

Reports appeared in the beginning of April, claiming Arsenal were interested in signing Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara. Speculation arose at the time about the Finland international being contemplated as a potential replacement for Granit Xhaka, but just as Xhaka started proving his worth by deputizing for Kieran Tierney on the left defensive flank, another report appeared claiming Dani Ceballos would return to Real Madrid when his loan deal expires. So whichever way you look at it, it seems the Gunners might need another player in the middle of the park.

Dani Ceballos will leave Arsenal at end of his loan spell and return to Real Madrid, according to Fabrizio Romano, who adds that the decision was made ‘weeks ago’ and that the future of the midfielder will be decided afterwards.

Ceballos joined the Gunners initially in the summer of 2019 on a season-long loan. His importance to the team grew apace after Mikel Arteta replaced Unai Emery in the dugout, and he formed a regular partnership with Granit Xhaka in the middle of the park as Arsenal improved their form late on and went on to win the FA Cup and the Community Shield.

Arsenal draw up Arteta replacement list – rumours 0

The fact that Arsenal’s season cannot be described as successful is pretty obvious, and with that in mind, the rumours about the club considering parting ways with manager Mikel Arteta, though noted, haven’t been able to gather pace so far.

However, it seems some ‘outlets’ feel it’s time they had another go. The rumour comes from Italy this time, and it involves not only Arsenal, but fellow Europa League semifinalists AS Roma. Apparently, the Gunners are supposed to have made a list of potential replacements for Arteta, and one of the names there is Roma boss Paulo Fonseca. That is according to TuttoMercatoWeb, who also claim the club hierarchy are not happy with Arteta’s work and the lack of progress under his command. They also say that at this point, only lifting the Europa League trophy could save Arteta his job.

Folarin Balogun has signed a new contract with Arsenal, set to keep him at the club until the summer of 2025. That is according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, who says the youngster turned down 15 different offers from other clubs to move as a free agent, the most lucrative one from Bayer Leverkusen, in order to stay with the Gunners. Manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu played a big part, putting in a strong effort to convince Balogun there’s a future for him at the Emirates. However, the official confirmation of the claims from the club is yet to come.

Arsenal in Odsonne Edouard race 0

Posted on April 13, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are involved in a transfer race for the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to The Telegraph.

The 23-year-old is a product of the academy at Paris Saint-Germain. He played for France at different youth levels, winning the Under-17 European Championship in 2015, but he hasn’t earned a senior cap yet. After being promoted to the first team at PSG in the summer of 2016, he had a brief loan spell with Toulouse. A few months after his return, he joined Celtic, also on an initial temporary deal, which was turned into a permanent one in 2018 for a fee of just under £10 million.

Arsenal linked with Jesse Lingard 0

It was only a matter of time before the impressive form Jesse Lingard has been on at West Ham started producing links left, right and centre. Arsenal are almost never left out of these speculative ‘reports‘, and so it’s no real surprise that they’ve popped up in relation to the 28-year-old forward.

Make no mistake, Lingard is a talented footballer. Natural ability has never been a problem for him, and it’s very likely that his attitude was the reason why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to put him far from his mind when it comes to shaping his squad on a matchday. This term, he only made three appearances for his parent club, two in the Carabao Cup and one in the FA Cup.
