Eddie Nketiah to stay at Arsenal for the rest of the season 0

Posted on January 16, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Eddie Nketiah spent the first half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Leeds United, but Arsenal were obviously unhappy with the way things were going with the young forward over there, as Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa admitted himself. He made a total of 17 Championship appearances but only two of those were from the start, coupled with another two starts in the Carabao Cup where he scored on both occasions. In total, he bagged five goals in four starts, but Bielsa obviously wasn’t going to give him what a player at his age needs to develop – regular game-time, which was supposed to be the whole point of the loan.

Mavropanos joins Nurnberg on loan 0

Konstantinos Mavropanos has joined Bundesliga II side Nurnberg on loan, Arsenal have confirmed.

The defender started his football journey with Apollon Smyrnis, but he only played for their youth sides before moving to PAS Giannina in January 2016. The Gunners signed him two years later for a fee of around £2 million, as a prospect for the future. However, injuries have severely hampered his progress in North London and in the two years that have passed since, he has only made eight first-team appearances in all competitions – seven in the Premier League and one in the Europa League. The 22-year-old Greek has suffered groin injuries on three different occasions, the last time being for the first two months of this season.

Arsenal are set to make a short trip across town to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the reverse fixture of that infamous 2-2 draw at the Emirates earlier this season.

Transfers: Arsenal step up Boateng interest; Arteta adamant Aubameyang isn’t leaving 0

Recent reports credited Arsenal with Bayern Munich’s out-of-favour defender Jerome Boateng. It’s certainly a rumour that makes sense, given Arsenal’s need for a quality centre-back after serious knee injury ruled Calum Chambers out for the rest of the season.

When asked about it, Bayern interim head coach Hansi Flick said he maintains regular contact with the 31-year-old former Germany international, and that departure hasn’t been discussed between them. But on the other hand, Sky Sports believe the Bavarians would be willing to part with the player for as little as €15 million (£12.8m).

Arsenal interested in Jerome Boateng 0

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are interested in signing Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng this winter.

The 31-year-old has been with the Bavarian club for so long – since the summer of 2011 – that not many now even remember that he actually played 24 times for Manchester City during the previous 12 months, 16 of those in the Premier League. But during his time in Munich, he amassed over 300 appearances for the Bundesliga champions, helping them win seven consecutive league titles, four DFB-Pokal trophies and the 2013 international treble – Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. He also has 76 caps and the 2014 World Cup with Germany to his name. Primarily a centre-back, of course, he is also quite capable of playing on defensive flanks.

The January transfer window opens on New Year’s Day (Wednesday), and like every other club anywhere, Arsenal are preparing for a trip to the market. Whether they’ll end up selling or buying anything, or spend the month ‘just looking’, remains to be seen.

Arteta wants Rabiot as Xhaka agrees Hertha deal 0

Following a period of tension between him and the Arsenal supporters, Granit Xhaka appears to have had enough. The incident that happened in that infamous home draw against Crystal Palace has been thoroughly discussed on countless occasions, and there hardly seems any need to go into it again. Suffices to say that it has left an unpleasant tang in the air at the club, and Xhaka, having been stripped of captaincy in the aftermath, was always quietly expected to move towards the exit door.

Arsenal keen on Xhaka – Zakaria swap deal 0

Arsenal are interested in signing Denis Zakaria of Borussia Monchengladbach, according to numerous reports. In fact, Arsenal are just one of the reportedly interested clubs in his signature, along with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

As claimed by Mirror, the Gunners plan to sweeten the Germans up by offering to send Granit Xhaka back to them. Apparently, the now former captain is set to leave the club in January and he might find a return to the club which he left to join Arsenal in 2016 an appealing possibility.

Newcastle want Xhaka on loan 0

Newcastle United are interested in taking Granit Xhaka on loan in January help him stay in the Premier League if that is his wish, according to The Telegraph.

The now former Arsenal captain has been linked rather heavily with AC Milan recently, with the Rossoneri apparently keen on signing either him or Lucas Torreira. However, it is believed that the Magpies boss Steve Bruce is also interested and is keeping an eye on the situation. Further more, it has been implied to him that there may be a chance for the Swiss international to actually move to the St. James Park.

Nacho Monreal prepares to leave Arsenal 0

Reiterating what other managers have said before about the Premier League transfer window finishing two weeks before the rest of Europe’s, Unai Emery says it is unfortunate and not normal, because the clubs are in a position to lose their players in the last minute without the possibility of getting suitable replacements.

Asked about the rumoured departure of left-back Nacho Monreal, the Arsenal boss candidly replies that it looks like his compatriot will be leaving Emirates Stadium before the European transfer window closes in seven days’ time.
