Roma want Maitland-Niles on loan 0

Posted on December 27, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

AS Roma are keen on signing Ainsley Maitland-Niles on loan from Arsenal for the second part of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The Gialorossi, under the command of former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho, were close to taking Granit Xhaka from Arsenal last summer, but the deal reportedly fell through at the eleventh hour and the Swiss international ended up staying put; much like Maitland-Niles himself who, following a bight loan at West Bromwich Albion, was reportedly keen on joining Everton.

However, it seems Mourinho and Roma are still keen on taking someone from Arsenal’s midfield ranks to the Italian capital, if only on loan.

Watford in Kolasinac loan talks 0

Arsenal and Watford are currently discussing the possibility of Sead Kolasinac joining going to the Vicarage for the second half of the 2021-22 season, according to the Watford Observer.

Apparently, the talks aren’t very close to being completed at this point, and the stumbling block which the two clubs are trying to work through is the Bosnian’s wages, too hefty for the standards at Watford. Therefore, the Hornets would like the obligation of paying them out to be shared between them and the Gunners. Providing the deal works out well for both Watford and Kolasinac, the loan could lead to a permanent deal for free when the left-back’s contract with Arsenal expires at the end of the season, though he would have to agree to earn considerably less in that case.

According to Sky in Italy, Arsenal have opened talks with Fiorentina about a potential move for Dusan Vlahovic, but as things stand at the moment, the Serbian striker is not interested in joining the Gunners. Juventus are interested as well, but that deal seems even less likely, with the Old Lady unwilling to meet Fiorentina’s asking price, or the commission Vlahovic’s representatives are asking for.

Barcelona to swoop for Aubameyang in January? 0

Posted on December 15, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

As you might have expected, it hasn’t taken long for the situation around Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to prompt reports linking the now former Arsenal captain with a move away from the club. His position is a truly untenable one after the latest case of indiscipline, so it may indeed be best for everyone if he were to seek for pastures new.

Aubamyang failed to return from an approved trip to France when he was supposed to, which obviously sent manager Mikel Arteta over the edge. A captain is supposed to lead by example, which obviously means keeping an impeccable record which sets an important example for younger players. Despite his unquestionable quality as a player, is something for what Aubameyang hardly qualifies.

According to reports in Italy, Arsenal are lining up a January move for Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic.

The Serbian striker has been linked with the Gunners on a number of occasions before. With Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah moving slowly towards the exit door, the media across Europe are constantly speculating about whom the club could go for to boost their attacking ranks.

Arsenal are apparently one of the options for Georginio Wijnaldum as he seeks a loan destination for the second half of the season. That is according to Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol, who adds that the former Liverpool man is open to the idea of returning to the Premier League with Paris Saint-Germain willing to allow it to happen.

Arsenal to allow Balogun to leave on loan in January 0

Posted on December 08, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

There is a lot of reported interest in Folarin Balogun, with a number of clubs interested in taking the young striker on loan this January. In England, it’s apparently Middlesbrough, Swansea City and Millwall who would appreciate having his goalscoring skills in the Championship for the second half of the season, while Saint-Etienne want to give him a shot at playing top-tier football in France.

And according to David Ornstein of The Athletic, the Gunners have decided to let Balogun leave in January, on a temporary basis, of course. No decision has been made yet on a potential destination, with all parties locked in discussions over the options currently on the table.

According to a recent report by Chris Wheatley of, Folarin Balogun has attracted a lot of interest with potential suitors keen on taking the 20-year-old forward on loan for the second half of the season.

Balogun started the opening Premier League match of the season for Arsenal, which ended in a shocking 2-0 defeat at the hands of newly promoted Brentford. He spent 11 minutes of the defeat to Chelsea on the pitch the following week and hasn’t featured in the league since, though he was given another seven minutes in the 3-0 Carabao Cup win over AFC Wimbledon.

Posted on December 03, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reportedly made contact with the representatives of Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski. That is according to Italian transfer football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, who says the Serie A giants would want around €35 million (£32m) for the services of the 21-year-old Sweden international. Kulusevski is under contract until the summer of 2025.

Kulusevski rose through the youth ranks at Atalanta and earned first-team promotion there, before heading out on loan to Parma in 2019. A year and a half later, Juventus made their move, signed him on a permanent basis, and sent him back to Parma for another six months. In all competitions, Kulusevski has so far made 65 appearances for the Old Lady, scoring eight goals and producing five assists.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing teenage sensation Karim Adeyemi from RB Salzburg.

The 19-year-old striker has been tearing up the Austrian Bundesliga this term, with 12 goal involvements (11 goals and one assist) in 14 league matches. His exploits at club level have already earned him a senior international debut with Germany, and he has already scored once in three appearances for his country. He has every chance of featuring at the World Cup in Qatar next year.
