Posted on September 08, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal Academy player Miguel Azeez joined Portsmouth on a season-long loan late in August. At the age of 18, the versatile midfielder obviously needs regular game-time to aid his development.

However, as reported by¬†, the club have made sure the agreement includes an option for them to recall the youngster in January, should they need to. Mohamed Elneny and Thomas Partey are both set to miss a number of games that month, and possibly in February as well, due to the involvement of their national teams in the African Cup of Nations, and in that period, Mikel Arteta’s ranks in the middle of the park could be stretched thin. That could open the door to Azeez being given a first-team chance at the Emirates.

The 2021-22 season for Arsenal hardly got off to a good start. It fact, it can be argued that things could hardly have turned out worse so far, with Mikel Arteta’s team sitting at the bottom of the Premier League table without any points, or even goals scored.

There have been reports lately suggesting the pressure on Arteta has risen significantly, and even hinting the Spaniard could be sacked if the results don’t pick up soon. Following losses to newly promoted Brentford, Champions League holders Chelsea and Premier League champions Manchester City, it’s Norwich City at the Emirates next, the team sitting directly above in the table.

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Real Betis over a loan move for Hector Bellerin, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The 26-year-old right-back has been keen to leave the club for a while now. He was first linked with Paris Saint-Germain, then Inter Milan as PSG signed Achraf Hakimi, but it seems he’ll be spending the rest of the 2021-22 in his homeland instead.

According to multiple sources, Willian has reached an agreement with Corinthians and is not set to join the Brazilian side as a free agent, with Arsenal more than happy to cut him loose without compensation two years before his contract would have expired.

He had won the Premier League title twice at Stamford Bridge, along with one FA Cup and one League Cup. He was also named Chelse’s Player of the Year twice, in 2015-16 and 2017-18.

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Fiorentina about the proposed transfer of Lucas Torreira, according to multiple sources.

The 25-year-old joined the Gunners in 2018 from Sampdoria, and though he did play an important role in the team under Unai Emery, he never had a proper place in the plans of Mikel Arteta, even though his contract at the Emirates has two years left to run. He spent last season on loan at Atletico Madrid, and it seems another temporary move is now very close.

Arsenal are currently negotiating with Crystal Palace over a proposed sale of Eddie Nketiah, as revealed by David Ornstein in his Monday column for The Athletic.

When Nketiah arrived to the Arsenal Academy from Chelsea in 2015, the hopes that Gunners would soon have a high-quality striker in their ranks for the foreseeable future were high. However, first-team opportunities have been rather limited for the 22-year-old. His contract expires at the end of the season and the club are now facing the age-old dilemma – sell now or risk a departure without compensation next summer?

Barcelona to offer Coutinho for Aubameyang? 0

Posted on August 17, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to a recent report by Sky Sports, Barcelona are interested in signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Arsenal, and given their extremely difficult financial situation, they are willing to offer Phillipe Coutinho in exchange for the Gabonese.

The fact that Arsenal are trying to sign a creative attacking midfielder, which what Coutinho unquestionably is, cannot be hidden. The Gunners’ interest in Real Madrid’s Martin Odegaard and Leicester City’s James Maddison has been reported on for months now.

However, is Coutinho the answer? The former Liverpool playmaker is 29, and though he boasts considerable Premier League experience and quality proven in the English top flight, he is five years older than Maddison and seven than Odegaard.

It seems Hector Bellerin is set to remain at Arsenal beyond this summer following heavy speculation about his future.

The Spaniard was initially targeted by Paris Saint-Germain, who were looking for a right-back capable of causing the opposition a lot of problems out wide, but the Ligue 1 giants eventually turned their attention to Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi to provide that kind of contribution, and they soon completed the deal for the former Real Madrid man.
