Posted on August 07, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.

Fans have been asking a string of questions in regards to the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubaemyang in recent months, and we haven’t really had all too many answers. We probably shouldn’t be surprised by that considering how hectic the end of the campaign has been, but now, it appears as if we’re edging closer and closer towards getting a definitive answer one way or the other.

As reported by The Telegraph, it seems as if the Gunners are closing in on a new three-year deal for the popular forward. Nobody really knows whether or not this is entirely accurate, but based on what we know up to this point, fans can be forgiven for getting a little bit excited.

Posted on August 06, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Despite strong efforts to ease the financial consequences of the still ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Arsenal have revealed they’ve proposed 55 redundancies.

A statement on the club’s official website says:

“Our aim has been to protect the jobs and base salaries of our people for as long as we possibly can. Unfortunately, we have now come to the point where we are proposing 55 redundancies.

“We do not make these proposals lightly and have looked at every aspect of the club and our expenditure before reaching this point. We are now entering the required 30-day consultation period on these proposals.”

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.

Aubameyang wants Dembele at Arsenal? 0

Posted on August 04, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to reports in France, captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants Arsenal to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona this summer.

Despite the 2019/20 season now being well and truly over, despite the FA Cup residing safely at the Emirates and a place in next term’s Europa League bearing Arsenal’s name, the future of Aubameyang is yet to be resolved. The Gabonese forward scored two goals in the final at Wembley, enough to overturn Christian Pulisic’s opener and clinch the trophy, and his quality and contribution to this team cannot be disputed.

The Europa League dilemma 0

Posted on August 04, 2020 by Harry Kettle

Many fans are still basking in the glory of Arsenal’s FA Cup Final triumph over Chelsea last weekend, and rightly so. It was the sort of victory that helps supporters to forget about what came before in the Premier League, with the Gunners failing to really make any kind of impact in the top flight. Sure, the sacking of Unai Emery disrupted their flow, but there was a whole lot more to it than that.

Arsenal in Willian talks 0

Posted on August 03, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

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.

They were able to come from behind to beat London rivals Chelsea 2-1 in the final at Wembley, cementing their place in next season’s UEFA Europa League in the process.

The story that the Gunners were interested in making this deal came from Catalan outlet Sport a few days ago, while reports elsewhere claimed that they had an offer of €25 million plus Guendouzi for the services of Thomas Partey rejected by Atletico Madrid.
