Suarez wants Arsenal 0

Posted on January 09, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.

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.

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.

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.

Posted on January 03, 2019 by David Nugent

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.

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.

According to the Express, Arsenal are the favourites to sign Lyon’s promising young French midfielder Houssem Aouar. The youngster is regarded as one of the brightest young stars in the European game.

The Gunners have made a promising start to life under Spanish boss Unai Emery. However, the former Valencia boss s reportedly looking to strengthen his squad in the winter transfer window and Aouar is reported to be his prime target.

Emery spent a relatively small amount of money in the summer, as the club looked to strengthen their squad with bargains. According to the Express, though, Arsenal hierarchy are prepared to back the Spaniard in the transfer market in January.

The report claims that the Red Devils are set to cash in on the Brazilian international, as his contract expires next summer. United have an option to extend the deal by a year, but reportedly favour selling Pereira in January.

Arsenal to go in for Weigl 0

Posted on November 22, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl, according to German publication Sport Bild.

Weigl started his professional career with 2. Bundesliga side 1860 Munich, and he spent two seasons there before arriving to Signal Iduna Park in 2015. He was one of Dortmund’s first signings under Thomas Tuchel as the current Paris Saint-Germain manager replaced Jurgen Klopp in the dugout that summer. The 23-year-old was a very important part of the team for three seasons, but it seems things have changed recently. He has played only three out of Dortmund’s 11 Bundesliga matches this term, seven in all competitions, and it appears he has fallen out of favor with current coach Lucien Favre.
