Arteta’s pre-Liverpool press conference – Willian, Aubameyang, Gabriel, and more 0

Posted on August 27, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal, as the FA Cup winners, are set to face Premier League champions Liverpool in the Community Shield on Saturday, and head coach Mikel Arteta spoke to the press ahead of the match, providing some updates on the likes of Willian, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and others.

First of all, the boss was asked about Willian adapting to new surroundings. The Brazilian winger will certainly need some time to absorb all the new stuff around him, but he undoubtedly possesses the right qualities to make it as an Arsenal player and help the team going forward. The coach is obviously impressed with the attitude of the 32-year-old, who, having won a lot in his career, is still hungry for more.

Arsenal reject Wolves opening bid for Maitland-Niles 0

Arsenal have rejected a bid of £15 million from Wolverhampton Wanderers for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to several sources.

The 22-year-old is contracted to Arsenal for three more years, but his services are apparently deemed surplus to requirements by head coach Mikel Arteta. The club are consequently open to offers as they seek to raise funds for further incoming transfers, following the arrival of 32-year-old winger Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer. Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes is reportedly set to come in as well, for a fee set at €30m (£27m). Arsenal’s reported desire to sign midfielders Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid or Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona will likely depend on the willingness of either club to accept the services of Matteo Guendouzi as part of the deal.

Loan moves: Osei-Tutu joins Cardiff City, Schalke want Kolasinac 0

Posted on August 25, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Jordi Osei-Tutu has left Arsenal to join Cardiff City on a season-long loan, both clubs have confirmed.

The 21-year-old is a highly versatile player, but, as he put it himself in an interview with Cardiff’s official website, he feels most comfortable wide on the right, whether as a classic fullback or in a more advanced wing-back role. Arsenal already have players like Hector Bellerin and Cedric Soares playing there, and Osei-Tutu’s temporary move away from the Emirates as he strives to get some first-team action under his belt seems wise.

Arsenal snatch Spurs youngster Jonathan Dinzeyi 0

Posted on August 24, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of Jonathan Dinzeyi, whose entire football journey so far has been with the youth setup at Tottenham Hotspur.

Born on October 13th, 1999, which means he’ll soon be turning 21, Dinzeyi is a versatile defender who primarily plays as a centre-back. Though his preferred foot is the right one, he can easily play on either side of the partnership, anywhere in a back three, or as a fullback. Standing no more than 5’9” tall, he appears extremely quick and agile.

Gabriel Magalhaes to complete Arsenal move 0

Gabriel Magalhaes is set to join Arsenal from Lille OSC in the coming days, according to The Guardian.

The 22-year-old defender was an object of interest for Napoli, Everton and both Manchester clubs as well, though it was recently reported that only Napoli made a strong effort to persuade him to join them instead of the Gunners, by making him a lucrative contract offer. Nonetheless, Gabriel has chosen Arsenal after a breakthrough reached in discussions on Saturday and is set to travel to London on Monday to complete the move which will cost the club up to €30 million (£27m).

Arsenal in for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar 0

Olympique Lyon have accepted that Houssem Aouar could be on his way out of the club following their Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich on Wednesday, according to L’Equpie, and the only offer so far has come from Arsenal.

Lyon finished the 2019/20 Ligue 1 campaign in seventh place, which means they won’t be playing in either European competition next season. Despite coming in eighth in the Premier League, Arsenal managed to avoid that fate in the last possible moment by lifting the FA Cup.

Arsenal lead Gabriel Magalhaes race 0

According to several sources, Arsenal are ahead of the competition when it comes to the prospect of signing Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille OSC.

The 22-year-old central defender is reportedly rated at around €25 million, and Sky Sports claim they’ve been informed by the Ligue 1 club that three prospective buyers – Arsenal, Everton and Napoli – have met their asking price.

Aubameyang set to sign new contract 0

Posted on August 17, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set to sign a new contract with Arsenal, according to multiple sources.

Aubameyang’s future was pretty much up in the air for a long time. His current deal expires in 2021, which means it has entered its final 12 months. The club have been keen to keep him for years to come, but they were reportedly willing to contemplate a sale if he doesn’t renew his commitment in order to avoid losing him for free. It has also been reported that the Gabonese forward wanted assurances on the club’s ambitions to compete for major honors before he makes his decision.

BREAKING: Arsenal sign Willian 0

Posted on August 14, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer. The winger has signed a three-year contract.

With his contract set to expire this summer, Willian was reportedly in constant negotiations with Chelsea over an extension, which intensified in the last few months as manager Frank Lampard reiterated his desire to keep hold of the player. However, Chelsea stood firm in their stance not to offer a contract longer than two years, which Willian obviously felt was unacceptable. Arsenal readily pounced and made the offer of a three-year deal which the player had been hoping for, wanting to remain in London.

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.
