Arsenal refuse to sell Torreira 0

Posted on June 16, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are prepared to turn down any offer for Lucas Torreira that might come their way this summer, according to Sky Sports’ Italian sources.

Apparently, the defensive midfielder is a target for AC Milan, who obviously feel that their place is at the very top of European football and are prepared to do whatever it takes to return there.

Like Arsenal, the seven-time Champions League winners failed to qualify for UEFA’s elite competition once more, which has cost club legend Gennaro Gattuso his job as head coach. Marco Giampaolo of Sampdoria is on his way to replace him, and having coached Torreira at the club from which Arsenal signed him last year for £26 million, he is keen on having him in his team once more.

Arsenal will bid for Ryan Fraser of AFC Bournemouth after the Europa League final, according to TalkSPORT.

The upcoming final of UEFA’s second-tier competition is huge – a chance for a European trophy, but perhaps even more as a chance to beat a path into next season’s Champions League. And apparently, having failed to finish in the top four in the Premier League, the club will wait to see where exactly they play next season before making any concrete moves in the transfer market.

Arsenal have “transfer ammunition” – Sanllehi 0

Posted on May 23, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have a lot of “transfer ammunition”, the club’ head of football Raul Sanllehi believes.

Speaking in an exclusive interview to the Arsenal official website, the head of football said he feels the club are in a very strong position when it comes to negotiating incoming transfers. He doesn’t feel that any club in the world has an advantage over Arsenal, given the size of this club, its history, its world-wide fanbase, the magnificent stadium and the other facilities at their disposal.

He did, however, stress that Arsenal need to return where they belong – to the Champions League.

According to different sources, Arsenal are considering moves for Valencia goalkeeper Neto and Gremio defender Walter Kannemann.

As per Spanish outlet Marca, the club are on the lookout for a replacement for the retiring Petr Cech. Although David Ospina is set to return to the Emirates following a loan spell with Serie A side Napoli, manager Unai Emery sees the 29-year-old Valencia shot-stopper as the perfect candidate to compete with Bernd Leno for the place between the posts in the future.

Arsenal linked with Saint-Etienne teenager 0

Arsenal seem to be actively looking for additions to their fragile back line, which conceded 51 goals in the 2018/19 Premier League season.

However, while it seems that an experienced, defensive leader of top quality is what the team needs, they are reportedly interested in the 18-year-old William Saliba from Saint-Etienne, according to Not only that, but the report names the youngster as the club’s “main defensive target”.

Very difficult to stay at Arsenal – Lichtsteiner 0

Posted on May 14, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Speaking in an exclusive interview given to Evening Standard journalist James Olley, Stephan Lichtsteiner admitted that staying at the Emirates past this summer would be “very difficult”.

The 35-year-old defender arrived on a free transfer from Juventus last summer, and having made 23 appearances in all competitions (19 starts) and scoring a single goal, it looks like the upcoming Europa League final against Chelsea will be the last game which he might be involved in as an Arsenal player. The contract he signed upon arrival was one set to last one year, with the club having an option to extend it for another 12 months. Lichtsteiner himself doesn’t expect that to happen at the moment, and Standard’s sources apparently feel the same way.

Arsenal to move for Nkunku 0

Posted on April 12, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are still interested in Christopher Nkunku of Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France.

The 21-year-old, turning 22 in November this year, has spent his entire professional career at the Parc Des Princes. He is primarily a central midfielder, though his powerful bursts of pace render him quite capable of deputizing on either attacking flank. He was involved in the Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting incident last weekend as the former Stoke City striker thoroughly embarrassed himself by failing to hit the gaping net from the goal-line itself, and actually clearing the effort of Nkunku off the line.

Arsenal’s potential summer transfer targets 0

Posted on April 07, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

The 2018/19 season is entering its final and most crucial stage, and Arsenal are locked in a battle to secure Champions League qualification for next season. They currently sit in fourth place, ahead of Chelsea on goal-difference, two points clear of Manchester United in sixth, and a point behind local rivals Tottenham Hotspur in third.

The success or failure in that contest is certain to have an impact on the class of players the club will be able to attract this summer, with every player worth his salt dreaming of playing in UEFA’s elite club competition.

Emery seeks transfer market support 0

Posted on April 06, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has hinted at a potential change to come in the approach to building his team at the Emirates. He still believes the developing of young players is very important, but he also wants big-name signings.

“I think we can improve first, by spending money to achieve players,” he said.

By making such a statement, the manager has put the ball directly into the court of the club owners, clearly seeking financial backing in the transfer market for the upcoming transfer windows.

Arsenal monitoring Fraser 0

Posted on April 02, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are keeping tabs on Ryan Fraser of Bournemouth, according to The Times.

Manager Unai Emery is apparently still looking to add some attacking threat from the flanks to his team. He is not satisfied with the work Denis Suarez has put in since his arrival on loan from Barcelona in January, and perhaps it’s becoming a bit clearer why the 25-year-old had no place at his parent club.
