Ozil has no intention of leaving Arsenal this summer 0

Posted on August 13, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Mesut Ozil has once again confirmed his stance that he won’t be leaving Arsenal before his contract expires in 2021.

The last time the German attacking midfielder was given a game was back in March, when Arsenal beat West Ham by 1-0 at the Emirates in the Premier League. His place in the team has seemed lost from the earliest stages of the season, when Unai Emery, still at the helm back then, repeatedly claimed he was leaving Ozil out only for tactical reasons. He was given another chance to reclaim it when Mikel Arteta took over, but the fact that even the new coach hasn’t used him for such a long time points towards the player having no place in his plans. Overall, Ozil played a total of 23 games in 2019/20, scoring once and assisting three times.

According to reports in Italy, Arsenal are currently in talks with AS Roma over a proposed swap deal involving Lucas Torreira and Amadou Diawara.

Diawara started his career in his homeland with a club called FC Sequence. He arrived to Italy in February 2015 and played for San Marino for a short while, before joining Bologna that summer. It cost Napoli €14.5m to sign him in 2016, and three years later, they received €21m for his services from Roma.

Willian has reportedly passed his medical ahead of the proposed move to Arsenal.

The 32-year-old revealed his decision to leave Stamford Bridge after seven years in an open letter to the Chelsea supporters on Sunday. Apparently, despite the player not making any waves regarding the wages on offer at Chelsea, the Blues simply refused to meet his request for the duration of the proposed new contract to be set at a minimum of three years. Arsenal jumped to the chance and quickly informed the winger he would be getting a three-year deal if he agrees to move to north London.

As reported by Sky Sports, three clubs are currently preparing offers they intent to send Arsenal’s way for the services of Ainsley Maitlan-Niles.

The news that the 22-year-old is contemplating Arsenal departure was first broken by the ever-reliable David Ornstein for The Athletic in mid-July. The respected journalist wrote that the player was unhappy with a lack of game-time, though head coach Mikel Arteta has given him a fair amount of minutes since then, taking the number of his appearances in the 2019/20 season to a total of 32 in all competitions.

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille OSC, according to the Daily Record.

The 22-year-old centre-back has attracted the attentions of a number of clubs across Europe and it was at one point believed he could follow forward Victor Osimhen from Lille to Napoli, but that option is now out. Everton were also interested but their interest has been cooled, while some reports suggest Manchester United are looking into the situation as well.

Arsenal favourites to land Willian 0

Arsenal have reportedly been in talks to sign Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer this summer, and according to Sky Sports, they’ve now emerged as favourites to get the deal done ahead of several other interested clubs.

It seems the Brazilian winger is very keen on the idea of working with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu, and that is why his mind is now turned towards the Emirates. Nothing has been set as definite as of yet with Chelsea still to face Bayern Munich in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 this week, but a decision is expected to be made soon afterwards, given that the Blues practically have no chance of going through in the competition, having lost the first leg at Stamford Bridge by 0-3.

Arsenal in Willian talks 0

Arsenal have long been a name on the list of clubs potentially interested in signing Willian, should the 32-year-old winger leave Chelsea as a free agent this summer.

For his part, Willian has been trying find common ground over an extension with his current club, and though wages he would be earning aren’t any kind of an obstacle for him to put his name on the dotted line, Chelsea aren’t willing to meet his demands over the length of the proposed new contract. The player obviously wants long-term security as he angles for a three-year deal, while the Blues are well-known for having reservations about signing players over 30 on long-lasting contracts. The difference in their respective aims could see them lose a player who helped them win two Premier League titles, an FA Cup and League Cup apiece, as well as the Europa League last year.

Arsenal have reportedly had two offers for Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey rejected, according to The Guardian.

Partey has recently become a very important player for Diego Simeone’s team. Primarily a defence-minded midfielder, he has made a total of 46 appearances this season so far, with their Champions League campaign still to have its conclusion after they knocked out Premier League title winners Liverpool in the round of 16. The 27-year-old powerhouse played a big part in that feat. He also managed to get on the scoresheet four times.
