Chris Smalling on Arsenal’s radar 0

Arsenal are interested in signing Chris Smalling from Manchester United when his loan spell at AS Roma expires next summer, according to Mirror.

The 29-year-old centre-back was apparently very reluctant to remain at Old Trafford following the arrival of Harry Maguire from Leicester City for a whopping £80 million, obviously not liking the prospect of losing out on precious game-time in the season preceding Euro 2020 as he strives to be a part of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the tournament. Roma were on the hunt for a central defender after Kostas Manolas left to join Napoli and Liverpool refused their offer of a loan for Dejan Lovren, and getting Smalling in seemed the obvious solution for all parties.

Pierre-Emerick Aubemayang has terminated the negotiations he was holding with the club over signing a new contract and is ready to ‘quite the club’ next summer, according to Mirror.

Having arrived from Borussia Dortmund in a £56 million deal in January 2018, the Gabonese has banged in 53 goals in 83 games in all competitions for the Gunners, winning the Premier League Golden Boot last season in the process, together with the Liverpool duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. It cannot be disputed that his individual quality in attack has been one of the few bright spots in the team ever since the club decided to part ways with Arsene Wenger and replace him with Unai Emery last year. His fine performances in a sea of underwhelming ones have earned him the captain’s armband, following the woes Granit Xhaka went through in that role.

Patrick Vieira the Arsenal job favourite? 0

Media outlets from different corners of the world often report different things on the same issues, and that is obviously the case when it comes to the vacant managerial position at Arsenal. So far we’ve seen claims that the club are very keen to go with Freddie Ljungberg, who has been appointed on a temporary basis, full time. Others say it’s Mikel Arteta who takes the club’s fancy. Massimiliano Alegri and Nuno Espirito Santo are also being mentioned in that aspect far and wide. So is Brendan Rodgers, but with the Northern Irishman insisting he has no reason to leave Leicester City (and we can well believe that), nobody seems to take that option seriously.

It’s time to take a quick look around the Premier League from results elsewhere and see where they leave Arsenal as this crazy campaign continues.

Wolves 2-0 West Ham

If Arsenal aren’t careful then Wolves are going to finish above them this season, and that’s no exaggeration. They were interested in potentially bringing Nuno Espirito Santo in as their new boss and it’s not hard to see why as they just can’t stop picking up results.

Arsenal vs Brighton – Preview 0

Posted on December 05, 2019 by Harry Kettle

The Premier League’s set of midweek fixtures has thrown up a series of fascinating results, with some being pretty key to different races up and down the top flight – and others just being thoroughly entertaining. Now, it’s the turn of Arsenal to try and put themselves in a position to make a push for the top four.

The line of six for the Arsenal job 0

The speculation about who would succeed Unai Emery as the Arsenal head coach were mounting even before the club decided to part ways with the Spaniard, and since it happened it’s gone through the roof. However, the names are always the same, always the same quartet.

Freddie Ljungberg has been appointed to the role as a temporary solution, but according to football.london, he is also the leading candidate for the permanent role. Giving the former Arsenal midfielder a proper chance would likely prove a popular decision among the club’s supporters, at least in the beginning. After that, the amount of love and support he’d be receiving from the Emirates stands would likely depend on results and performances. He has no experience in first-team management, but he knows the youth setup well and young players would certainly benefit from his appointment.

Ljungberg talks ahead of Brighton clash – Part 2 0

On changing the club’s fortunes:
I think the only way to change an atmosphere in the stadium is by how you play. Like you said, the fans were amazing at Norwich. I felt like they got more and more energy the more that we played in the first half. We were on top of Norwich and I think the Arsenal fans got energy from that. That helped. But they were great, even when we went 1-0 down or 2-1 down, they were even louder and they helped us. That’s important for the players. When it comes to the Emirates, the fans want us to win football games. They want us to play good football and I think the only way to try to get a good atmosphere and get them going is to try to achieve that. Whether that’s me or someone else as a coach, I don’t think that matters so much.

Arsenal are in need of a big result when they go up against Brighton at the Emirates tomorrow, as they attempt to bring their eight game winless streak to the end. Caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg will be hoping to prove that he’s the man for the job, especially after their recent draw against Norwich.

The legendary Frenchman, who was in charge of Arsenal for 22 years before the club decided to part ways with him and appoint Unai Emery in his place last year, is now working with FIFA as their Chief of Global Football Development. He was interviewed by Sky Sports recently in that capacity, and naturally, the subject of Arsenal and their actions and fortunes these days were an inevitable item on the agenda.

Pochettino to Arsenal links continue 1

It’s safe to assume that nobody really knows what direction Arsenal Football Club are going to go in next. The expectation for this season has always been that they will challenge for the top four and may go after a trophy or two, but with Unai Emery being sacked before we even hit December, a lot of fans can be forgiven for thinking that everything is a bit up in the air now.
