Arsenal in for Filipe Luis? 0

Posted on September 04, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to reports in various media outlets, Arsenal could be interested in signing Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid in January.

The Brazil international would certainly represent a significant upgrade on current contenders for the left-back spot at Arsenal. Sead Kolasinac still hasn’t featured in this campaign due to knee injury he picked up in pre-season. Nacho Monreal has therefore been the undisputed starter on the left defensive flank, and it’s fair to say the Spaniard hasn’t really covered himself in glory so far, despite playing comparatively better than Hector Bellerin on the other side. In fact, probably better than the rest of Arsenal’s back line, though that in itself doesn’t say nearly as much about him as about them.

According to Sky Sports, Celtic have completed the signing of Armstrong Okoflex, who came through the ranks of Arsenal’s academy. The 16-year-old lad signed a three-year deal with the Scottish champions and he hopes to make his first-team debut this season.

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, now in charge at Celtic, spoke with Okoflex about his decision to give Raheem Sterling his first proper shot, thus proving he is not averse to giving chances to very young players. Born in Dublin, the young forward has played a few games for the Ireland U16 team, while at Arsenal he played for both U-16 and U18, but never for the first team.

David Ospina leaving Arsenal the right move for everybody 0

Friday saw the Italian transfer window shut and saw Arsenal players leave for Serie A clubs. Joel Campbell joined Frosinone, youngster Stephy Mavididi signed for Juventus and backup goalkeeper David Ospina joined Napoli on loan.

Out of the trio, only Ospina has featured in the Gunners first-team in recent seasons. A move was almost inevitable for the Colombian number one after falling down the goalkeeping pecking order at Arsenal due to the arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Cech and Leno first choice goalkeepers

As soon as the Gunners signed Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen this summer, it looked obvious that the north London club were overstocked in the goalkeeping department.

According to the BBC, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to join London rivals Fulham on a season-long loan deal. The report suggests that the player just needs to agree on personal terms with Cottagers before completing the move.

The 23-year-old has only recently signed a contract extension in north London. However, it seems that he is moving to Craven Cottage for more regular first team football this season.

Pushed down the pecking order by new arrivals

The summer arrivals of Swiss international defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has seen Chambers fall down the pecking order at the north London.

According to Goal, Arsenal’s young striker Chuba Akpom is set to make a £2million move to Greek club PAOK. According to the report, a number of clubs were chasing the striker’s signature. However, it seems the Greek club are not set to nab the 22-year-old in the next few days.

Never really fulfilled his promise at Arsenal

Akpom came through the Arsenal youth system and has spent ten years with the Gunners. In his late teens, it seemed that the young striker had the potential to become a first-team player for the north London side.

According to Football.London, Arsenal have completed the signing of young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient for a fee of around £7million. The youngster is reported to have signed a five-year deal with the North London club.

A video of the youngster signing a deal alongside Head of Recruitment Sven Mislintat and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy has emerged that has confirmed the deal.

Mislintat spotted Guendouzi

Sven Mislintat built a reputation as a top talent spotter at previous club Dortmund. He would spot undiscovered stars and then they would become major stars at the German club.

While the focus of the football world may be elsewhere right now, especially in England, Arsenal have their sights firmly set on making the most of the summer transfer window. To them, it doesn’t really matter whether or not the Three Lions progress into the final of the World Cup tonight, because their biggest priority associated with that team will be whether or not Danny Welbeck will be returning to the Emirates as a fully fit forward ahead of the new season.

Arsenal confirm Torreira 0

Arsenal have confirmed that Lucas Torreira will join the club from Sampdoria, though they stress that the deal is still subject to regulatory processes.

After a relatively long saga, it’s officially confirmed that the Uruguay international will be a part of Arsenal’s new-look team under Unai Emery. Having spent four seasons in Serie A, two with Pescara (42 appearances, six goals) and two with Sampdoria (74, 4), Torreira is ready to taste the challenges of playing in the Premier League.

Wilshere to West Ham confirmed 0

The long-running Jack Wilshere saga has finally come to an end, as the Englishman has signed on the dotted line for West Ham United. The Premier League outfit have been seeking Wilshere’s signature for a long time now, even going back to before his recent contract issues. When Unai Emery made it painfully obvious that Jack wouldn’t be featuring in his plans for the 2018/19 campaign he had no choice but to look elsewhere, and as it turns out, he didn’t need to look too far across London in order to find his new home.

Lucas Torreira set to complete Arsenal move next week 0

Posted on July 07, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Sampdoria and Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira is expected to have a medical with the club next week ahead of a move reportedly worth £26.5million.

Torreira has long been linked with a move to North London. In fact, it has recently been revealed that he could have had a medical with Arsenal before the World Cup or even during the tournament.

However, understandably the midfielder wanted to concentrate on the World Cup, which his national side exited at the quarter-finals stage on Friday.
