Arsenal in talks for N’Zonzi 0

Posted on July 07, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have apparently opened the talks with Sevilla over the possibility of Steven N’Zonzi moving to North London, Sky Sports have reported as per their own sources.

N’Zonzi began his professional career in the French League 2 with Amiens in 2007. After spending two years there, he moved to England where he played three seasons apiece with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City. In 2015 he was spotted and taken to Spain by the Sevilla manager at the time – Unai Emery. They worked together for a year before Emery made the switch to Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal have been about as busy as their fanbase could’ve realistically hoped for them to be in the first month or so of the summer transfer window, and as we look ahead to August and the start of the new Premier League season, it’s clear to see that they aren’t going to be slowing down just yet. We can debate over the quality of the players that they’re going after until we’re red in the face, but at the end of the day, Unai Emery is putting a plan in place to try and get the Gunners back to where they need to be – and that’s an exciting thing to be a part of.

Sokratis and Soyuncu take a step towards the Emirates 0

Sokratis Papasthatopoulos’ move to Arsenal has been announced by Borussia Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc, according to Sky Sports. In fact, the German club have already secured a potential long-term replacement by signing 22-year-old French centre-back Abdou Diallo from Mainz.

Earlier reports claimed the two clubs had come near an agreement for a fee of around £16million.

The long-awaited, likely arrival of the Greece international will be another part of the defensive overhaul the newly appointed manager Unai Emery is currently undergoing at the Emirates, and amid all the glamour of the World Cup in full swing at the moment this is a refreshing piece of news for Arsenal fans.

Slam ‘Dunk’ off the table? 0

First off: we thoroughly apologise for the title, but if we hadn’t of gone for it, then we probably would’ve hated ourselves forever.

Some people know and others don’t, but Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk has actually been linked to Arsenal a handful of times now. The 26-year-old, who is a hometown hero of sorts, has been at the club since 2010 with many long-since believing that he deserved a move to one of the Premier League’s elite. Alas, it seems as if for now, he’ll have to wait and see what happens throughout the remainder of his tenure with the Seagulls.

Sampdoria president announces Torreira departure 0

Posted on June 20, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to Sky Sports (and other outlets as well), Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that Lucas Torreira has left the club.

Torreira’s contract with the Italian club reportedly contains a £22million release clause, and Arsenal, reluctant to pay the whole sum up front, offered to pay an increased fee of £26.4million (€30million) in several installments instead.

Ferrero spoke live on Italian television and sad Torreira had left for €30million. He praised the club’s business sense as they signed the midfielder from Pescara in 2015 for just 10% of the sum they are set to cash in on his departure. After spending a season on loan back at Pescara, Torreira made a total of 74 appearances for Sampdoria and scored four goals along the way.

Arsenal agree Sokratis deal 0

Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos, according to the Telegraph. However, the report also reveals that the deal will not be officially confirmed before July.

The Greek centre-back is the second signing the Gunners are set to make since the appointment of Unai Emery as the manager, and given the way the squad is (un)balanced at the moment, it’s not really surprising that both of them represent defensive reinforcements.

Sokratis started his career in his homeland with AEK Athens, after three years he moved to Italy where he played for Genoa and AC Milan. He moved to Werder Bremen in 2011, and two years later he signed for Borussia Dortmund.

The contract that he’s being offered by Arsenal is for three years, and it includes options for extensions.

Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen have all but confirmed that highly rated goalkeeper Bernd Leno will be leaving the club for greener pastures in the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old has been one of the leading shot-stoppers in the Germany’s top flight for quite some time now, making between 32 and 34 appearances in each of the last six Bundesliga campaigns.

However, Leno appears to have decided to leave the club this summer, which led to Bayer Leverkusen signing Lukas Hradecky from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Arsenal are closing in on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Sokratis Papastathopoulos, according to BBC, the Telegraph, Sky Sports and various other sources. The reported sum which the club would pay for the centre-back is £16million.

At 29, Sokratis has a year remaining on his contract at Dortmund. Along with Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner who is set to join Arsenal for free, the Greece international would represent another low-cost experienced addition to the squad’s defence department. Given the reported size of the funds available for transfers this summer, this is certainly the type of targets the club will be going for.
