Arsenal contemplate Liverpool’s Moreno 0

Posted on October 19, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to David Maddock of the Mirror, Arsenal are thinking about swooping in for Liverpool’s Aberto Moreno.


Moreno arrived to Anfield in 2014 from Sevilla, where he had worked with the current Arsenal manager Unai Emery. He was a part of Brendan Rodgers’ ultimately failed attempt at rebuilding the squad at Liverpool following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. By the end of his first season there and subsequently Rodgers’ tenure four months later, Moreno had lost his place in the starting XI.

Partey to replace Ramsey? 0

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is set to attempt to sign Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey as a replacement for the departing Aaron Ramsey, according to the Express.

As a product of their academy, Partey has been an Atleti player his whole career so far, though he has had loan spells with Mallorca and Almeria. He has made a total of 67 appearances and scored seven goals in all competitions for the Europa League holders, and he certainly played his part in their quest for the trophy which eluded Arsenal due to Atletico beating them in the semifinal. The 25-year-old has been capped 17 times for Ghana, and he found the net in his national team’s shirt six times.

Liverpool and United preparing January moves for Ramsey 0

With the situation between Arsenal and Aaron Ramsey becoming clearer by the day, reports about interest from other clubs are bound to come thick in the coming months. His current deal expires next summer and it is reasonable to assume that, having withdrawn all offers of a new deal, Arsenal would look to sell the player in January to avoid missing out on a transfer fee altogether.

Various recent reports have linked the Welshman with Liverpool, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan, but the latest one from Evening Standard claims the two clubs from the northwest of England are set to do battle for Ramsey’s signature in January, looking to make a cut-price deal.

Arsenal to sign Miguel Almiron from Atlanta? 0

Posted on October 05, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

A number of media outlets report that Miguel Almiron from Atlanta United is Arsenal-bound in January. Apparantly, manager Darren Eales spoke to FOX Deportes USA and revealed that Almiron’s future has already been decided. He would move to England in the ‘European winter market’.

The reports mention the figure of £11million, which is definitely a reasonable price for a decent player.

Almiron is an attacking midfielder, most comfortable when playing through the middle but he is quite capable of performing well on either flank if called upon. He started his career with Cerro Porteno  in his homeland of Paraguay. After three seasons, he moved to Argentina to play for Lanus, and he arrived to Atlanta in December 2016, and has so far made 57 appearances and scored 18 goals in all competition for the MLS club.

The Ramsey situation 1

As you’re probably aware by now, Arsenal have pulled out of the negotiations over a new contract for Aaron Ramsey. His current deal expires next summer, and it seems this is the end of the road for the Welshman who has already spent a decade at the Emirates.

In that time, his contribution, spread over 337 appearances and 58 goals, has not been unimportant. The last three trophies Arsenal lifted were FA Cups, and Ramsey scored in two out of the three finals. As Unai Emery took up the spot held for so long by Arsene Wenger, there were numerous reports of the Spanish coach planning to make Ramsey the central figure in his team.

Ramsey on his way to Merseyside? 0

Aaron Ramsey seems set to leave Arsenal after he completes his 11th season with the club. His current deal expires next summer and the negotiations about a new one have reportedly broken down, though it remains unclear over what. Some believe it’s because he wants recognition of his importance to the team in the form of a lucrative weekly paycheck, such as Mesut Ozil managed to secure for example. Others feel there might be something else behind it, but that’s not really important at the moment.

Arsenal in for Filipe Luis? 0

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.

Okoflex signs for Celtic as Nelson leaves on loan 0

Posted on September 01, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

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

Posted on August 18, 2018 by David Nugent

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.

Calum Chambers set for loan move to Fulham 0

Posted on August 07, 2018 by David Nugent

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.
