Mavropanos attracting Bundesliga interest 0

Posted on June 08, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal’s Kostantinos Mavopanos is attracting interest from several Bundesliga clubs, according to Charles Watts of

Ever since his arrival from PAS Giannina in the summer of 2018, the defender’s stint in north London has been heavily impacted by injuries, mostly groin issues. Finally fit, he was sent out on loan to FC Nuremberg this January, and has so far shown decent consistency in terms of fitness, having made 10 appearances in the 2. Bundesliga. What’s more, his performances in those matches helped the team keep three clean sheets and overall have been impressive enough to draw attention from the German top flight.

‘Lean’ transfer window ahead for Arsenal 0

Posted on May 27, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

As the Premier League and the 20 clubs competing in it prepare for a return to action behind closed doors next month, the time-frame of the upcoming transfer window remains undetermined. The extent of the financial consequences of the current situation, the effect that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on all clubs, is also yet to be fully felt.

One thing that remains unchanged is that Arsenal, like every other top club across Europe, continue to be linked with a large number of potential signings. However, Matt Law of The Telegraph claims that the Gunners, along with their fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur, wont have any money to spend on incoming transfers unless they sell some of their top stars.

Pablo Mari keen on permanent Arsenal transfer 0

Posted on April 19, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Pablo Mari has revealed he is keen to turn his loan from Flamengo to Arsenal into a permanent transfer.

The defender joined the Gunners on a temporary basis in January this year and has so far made two appearances for the club, a 1-0 win over West Ham in the Premier League and a 0-2 win away to Portsmouth in the FA Cup. His performance on both occasions could only be described as impressive, especially given that most players need at least a little bit of time to adapt and show their potential after moving to a new club and a new league.

Arsenal confident of Ceballos loan extension amid season uncertainty 0

Posted on March 25, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal are confident that they will be able to extend the loan deal for Dani Ceballos past the date agreed for its expiration – June 30th.

The game has been completely suspended across Europe and at the moment, it’s hard to foresee when or how the 2019/20 season will end. In England, the suspension is currently set to last until the end of April at the earliest, and the Premier League clubs are scheduled to hold a meeting early next month to discuss the possibility of a ‘best-case scenario’ – the season being continued sometime in the middle of May. If that proves doable, the goal will be to finish the campaign before the end of June, but there is still a strong possibility of league games being played well into the summer.

Arsenal face battle to keep Saka 0

Posted on February 18, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to David Ornstein of The Athletic, Arsenal face a battle to keep hold of Bukayo Saka this summer.

The 18-year-old broke onto the scene practically immediately upon introduction to the first team. Deployed a few times in his preferred position on the left wing by Unai Emery, he was asked to do the best he can on the left defensive flank in the absence of both Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.

Barcelona opted against Aubameyang move – Abidal 0

Posted on February 05, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with Barcelona for several months now, and the Catalan club’s sporting director Eric Abidal admitted, as quoted by Eurosport, that they had indeed been considering a move for him but chose against it in the end.

The La Liga title holders may well be regretting their decision at the moment. The main reason they were in for a striker this winter was the injury of Luis Suarez, the former Liverpool man who may and may not be back in action again this season. Apart from Aubameyang, they were reportedly considering Timo Werner of RB Leipzig, but in the end they came closest to signing Rodrigo Moreno of Valencia. In the end, that attempt fell through as well and they had to settle for making the best of what they already had at their disposal.

CONFIRMED: Arsenal sign Cedric Soares on loan from Southampton 0

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Cedric Soares on loan from Southampton.

It seems the Gunners are finally getting a their priorities right when it comes to signing new players. Last summer, they did sign William Saliba and Kieran Tierney, but while Saliba is widely considered too young to make immediate impact and under the terms of the deal, has been loaned back to Lille, Tierney has been mostly prevented from making a contribution towards the stabilization of the defence by injuries. The main talking point of the window was once again an attacking player as the club forked out £72 million for Nicolas Pepe.

Cedric allowed to leave Southampton amid Arsenal links 0

Posted on January 30, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have been heavily linked with Southampton fullback Cedric Soares in recent days, and it seems a deal is indeed on the cards. The player has informed the club of his wish to leave, and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has revealed he would be allowed to go.

Soares joined the Saints from Sporting Lisbon in 2015 for €7 million and has been on their books since, but he spent the second half of last season on loan at Inter Milan. This term, he has played in 19 games in total, of which 16 in the Premier League, scoring a single goal and assisting one as well. He was a regular member of the starting XI until he suffered a knee injury which he is still recovering from.

CONFIRMED: Pablo Mari to arrive on loan 0

Posted on January 29, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have officially confirmed that defender Pablo Mari is set to arrive on loan for the rest of the season.

It has been a funny one, this story. The Spaniard was in London for talks over the weekend, after which he went back to Brazil. Some media outlets, Daily Mail being the ring-leader here, jumped to the conclusion that he went back disappointed and that the whole deal was now in great danger of collapsing. Others, meanwhile, maintained that his return to Brazil was always a part of his schedule, regardless of how the talks went and that it meant nothing. And fortunately, it turns out the latter were right.

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.
