Leno open to everything in the future 0

Posted on April 15, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has revealed that he is open to any path that may present itself to him regarding his future.

Having gone through the youth ranks at Stuttgart and won the Under-17 Bundesliga with them, the 29-year-old never made a competitive appearance for their first team. Instead, he was loaned out to Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 for a year, at the end of which Leverkusen pursued and completed a permanent deal for his services. Overall, he stood between the posts on 304 occasions for the Bundesliga side, and his notable performances there earned him a move to Arsenal in 2018, led by Unai Emery at the time, for a reported fee of just over £22 million.

Folarin Balogun has signed a new contract with Arsenal, set to keep him at the club until the summer of 2025. That is according to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, who says the youngster turned down 15 different offers from other clubs to move as a free agent, the most lucrative one from Bayer Leverkusen, in order to stay with the Gunners. Manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu played a big part, putting in a strong effort to convince Balogun there’s a future for him at the Emirates. However, the official confirmation of the claims from the club is yet to come.

Arsenal are involved in a transfer race for the signature of Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard, according to The Telegraph.

The 23-year-old is a product of the academy at Paris Saint-Germain. He played for France at different youth levels, winning the Under-17 European Championship in 2015, but he hasn’t earned a senior cap yet. After being promoted to the first team at PSG in the summer of 2016, he had a brief loan spell with Toulouse. A few months after his return, he joined Celtic, also on an initial temporary deal, which was turned into a permanent one in 2018 for a fee of just under £10 million.

There is a strong chance Hector Bellerin will be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Having taken his first football steps at Barcelona, Bellerin joined Arsenal’s Under-18 side in 2011, and apart from a brief loan spell at Watford, he’s been with the club ever since. Overall, he has made 234 first-team appearances in all competitions, scoring nine and assisting 29 goals, and helping the team win three FA Cups and three Community Shields. Playing primarily as a right-back, the 26-year-old has been known to perform well further up the pitch as a wide midfielder as well.

Posted on April 02, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Lucas Torreira gave a very emotional interview to ESPN Argentina recently, in which he confirmed his mother had passed away and revealed his intention to fulfill the wish of his father to return to South America.

The 25-year-old midfielder arrived to Arsenal from Sampdoria in 2018. His early time at the club was full of ups and downs, but he still made 89 appearances for the club over two years before joining Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan last year. The loan obviously expires soon, and then there’ll still be two years on his contract with the Gunners.

Elneny eyeing new Arsenal contract 0

As quoted by the Evening Standard, Mohamed Elneny has openly expressed a desire to sign a new Arsenal contract.

The defensive midfielder is currently bound to the club until the summer of 2022, which means he’ll be entering the final 12 months of his contract at the end of this season and Arsenal would have to either contemplate a sale or offer him a new deal, if they wish to avoid the risk of losing his services for free.

Arsenal have the upper hand in Evan N’Dicka race 0

Posted on March 17, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal reportedly have an advantage over their rivals in the race for the signature of Eintracht Frankfurt star Evan N’Dicka. That is according to Football.London, who suggest that it’s winger Nicholas Pepe who could help the Gunners wrap up the transfer of the 21-year-old defender.

Primarily a centre-back, N’Dicka can also play on the left flank of the defence. He came through the youth ranks at Auxerre and was acquired by Eintracht in 2018 for around £5.5 million. Since then, he’s gone on to represent the Bundesliga side on 87 occasions, scoring five goals and producing as many assists, and his talent has attracted attention across Europe. He is currently an Under-21 international for France.

Transfer rumours: Achraf Hakimi linked 0

Posted on March 09, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Media outlets around the world don’t sleep; their rumour mills run around the clock, and there have been a few stories involving Arsenal in the last few days.

One of those involves Inter Milan right-back Achraf Hakimi. It seems that the Serie A club’s owners, Suning Holdings Group will be closing down their Chinese Super League project Jiangsu FC, and there are concerns that they could be forced to withdraw much of their so far generous financial support to Inter as well. Club chairman Steven Zhang has played down speculations about a forthcoming sale or takeover, but many believe the Nerazzurri will still have to generate significant funds through player sales, and according to The Telegraph, Arsenal have been ‘alerted’ to a possible availability of Hakimi.

Arsenal interested in Ibrahima Konate 0

Posted on March 05, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are interested in signing Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, according to the Evening Standard.

The 21-year-old defender joined Leipzig in the summer of 2017 from Sochaux, where he rose through the youth ranks and earned himself a place in the first team just six months before. Since then, he’s gone on to make 88 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side, scoring four goals and assisting once. This term, Konate has been struggling with injuries, missing a total of 10 matches in the German top flight through a torn muscle fibre and an ankle problem. Because of that, he hasn’t exactly been a regular starter for Julian Nagelsmann’s team, being named in the lineup no more than four times, coming on off the bench in another four games, and remaining seated in the dugout in five. Nonetheless, the 6’4″ centre-back boasts significant experience for his age, and plays with surprising maturity.

Leipzig and Leverkusen lead Balogun race 0

Posted on March 02, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen are currently leading the race for the signature of Folarin Balogun when his contract with Arsenal expires in the summer, according to the latest report on that front by the Mirror.

Arsenal have been trying to get the youngster to recommit his future and stay at the Emirates, seeing him as a player for the future, and manager Mikel Arteta recently expressed some optimism about it, but it seems Balogun has no intention of waiting any longer for regular first-team opportunities. He hasn’t played a single Premier League game so far, featuring only in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup this term. He’s scored twice in four appearances in the European competition, and only played in the 1-4 cup defeat to Manchester City back in December. Instead, he has mostly played for the Under-23 side, scoring seven goals and assisting twice in the Premier League 2.
