No Conte approach amid Arteta pressure reports 0

Posted on September 06, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

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. The deal between the two clubs does not include an option for the La Liga side to make the switch permanent.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles has been strongly linked with Everton the last day or so. According to multiple sources, the Toffees made a concrete offer for the services of the 24-year-old, aiming to boost the competition on their right defensive flank.

Maitland-Niles is keen to leave the Emirates, he made that clear himself with a post on Instagram.

“All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play,” he wrote, tagging the club’s official account. However, Paul Joyce of The Times says the club have informed him of their desire for him to stay put.

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.

The experienced winger arrived to the Emirates from Chelsea last year as a player of notable pedigree and a reputation of a proven winner. 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. Overall, he had spent seven years there, scoring 63 goals along with 62 assists in 339 games in all competitions.

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 and Crystal Palace in Nketiah talks 0

Posted on August 23, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.

Transfer rumours: Bellerin and Locatelli latest 0

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.

Ramsdale talks on verge of breakdown 0

Posted on August 11, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

The negotiations between Arsenal and Sheffield United about the proposed transfer of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale are on the brink of breaking down following a face-to-face meeting held on Wednesday, according to The Athletic.

The chiefs of the two clubs met in Hertfordshire to discuss a possible deal, but their respective estimates of what the 23-year-old goalkeeper is worth in today’s market were far apart. Apparently, the Blades and their Saudi owners were looking to start the talks at £35 million, while the Gunners had been hoping to pay half that amount.

Transfers: Abraham, Odegaard, Maddison 0

The transfer window is now entering its final weeks, with Arsenal set to get the 2021-22 Premier League season rolling against newly promoted Brentford on Friday. The Gunners have done some decent business on incoming deals, with the arrivals of left-back Nuno Tavares from Benfica and midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht followed by that of in-demand defender Ben White from Brighton and Hove Albion. Around £75 million has been spent on these three players (£50m on White alone), and further incomings will now depend on whether the club are able to shift some of the players who aren’t considered necessary in Mikel Arteta’s squad for the future.
