Arsenal favourites for Upamecano? 0

Posted on June 15, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are at the head of the queue to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to Tuttosport.

The report from the Italian outlet mostly deals with AC Milan’s interest in the 21-year-old, and its writer sees this development as a ‘mockery’ – that the club which Ivan Gazidis left to become the Rossoneri CEO should now surpass the seven-time European champions regarding a potential signing.

Mavropanos joins Nurnberg on loan 0

Konstantinos Mavropanos has joined Bundesliga II side Nurnberg on loan, Arsenal have confirmed.

The defender started his football journey with Apollon Smyrnis, but he only played for their youth sides before moving to PAS Giannina in January 2016. The Gunners signed him two years later for a fee of around £2 million, as a prospect for the future. However, injuries have severely hampered his progress in North London and in the two years that have passed since, he has only made eight first-team appearances in all competitions – seven in the Premier League and one in the Europa League. The 22-year-old Greek has suffered groin injuries on three different occasions, the last time being for the first two months of this season.

The end of the year is getting nearer, and with it comes the usual lot of transfer speculations which precedes a transfer window, so let’s take a look at what the media are saying regarding Arsenal.

Lucas Torreira

Less than a year had past from the Uruguayan’s arrival from Sampdoria and the first reports of him wanting to leave the Emirates. During the summer, he was heavily linked with AC Milan, who had just appointed Torreira’s former coach Marco Giampaolo as the manager. Nothing materialized on that front nor was it likely to.

Milan clubs to vie for Ozil 0

As reported by the Mirror, AC Milan and Inter Milan are both heavily interested in signing Arsenal’s outcast Mesut Ozil.

Ozil made only three appearances in all competitions this season and his relationship with manager Unai Emery is said to be severely damaged. He hasn’t even been named on the bench for the last several games, and Emery explained it more than once, saying that it was a decision unrelated to his fitness and that other players, those that were included, deserved it more than Ozil.

The summer transfer window has already provided us with a series of surprising moments and moves from across European football, as you’d probably expect. Alas, even with that being the case, it still seems like there’s a lot more to come as we look ahead to the remainder of the window. The majority of big name players will probably stay put, but even with that being the case, there’s always the worry that a few of our favourites could suddenly decide that their future lies away from the Emirates.

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Lucas Torreira recently. The defensive midfielder is reportedly of strong interest to AC Milan, and former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis, now doing the same job for Milan, is looking to put Torreira together with Marco Giampaolo once more. Giampaolo, who worked with Torreira at Sampdoria, has replaced Gennaro Gattuso as the Rossoneri head coach and keen on the idea himself.

Joachim Andersen: Arsenal’s Italian battle continues 0

One of the many names Arsenal have been linked with ahead and during the ongoing transfer window in Joachim Andersen of Sampdoria.

Andersen is a 23-year-old central defender, highly valued by his current club (reportedly around €40 million) and numerous potential suitors who have been scouting him heavily. Having started out at FC Twente, he joined the Genoa side in 2017 and has made 42 appearances for them in all competitions; 34 of those came during the 2018/19 season.

Milan want Torreira on loan 0

Posted on June 23, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

AC Milan seem to have their sights properly set on signing Lucas Torreira from Arsenal. It has been no secret that their new manager, Marco Giampaolo, would love to be reunited with the player he used to coach at Sampdoria, and Milan are determined to do their best to try and fulfill his wish.

For their part, Arsenal are reluctant to part ways with their £26 million investment, and understandably so, given that he was among the first and most prominent signings under manager Unai Emery. Therefore, if any club are going to even hope to prize Torreira away from the Emirates, they must be prepared to fork out a hefty sum.

Does Torreira want to leave? 0

Reports have recently emerged linking Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira with a move to AC Milan this summer, and the latest statements by both the player and his agent haven’t been exactly encouraging.

The Rossoneri have confirmed the appointment of Marco Giampaolo to replace club legend Gennaro Gattuso as head coach today (Wednesday). The 51-year-old was in charge at Sampdoria for three years, and he was the one to put faith in Torreira as the defensive midfielder returned from a loan spell with Pescara in 2016. He is now apparently keen on a reunion with the Uruguay international.

Arsenal refuse to sell Torreira 0

Arsenal are prepared to turn down any offer for Lucas Torreira that might come their way this summer, according to Sky Sports’ Italian sources.

Apparently, the defensive midfielder is a target for AC Milan, who obviously feel that their place is at the very top of European football and are prepared to do whatever it takes to return there.

Like Arsenal, the seven-time Champions League winners failed to qualify for UEFA’s elite competition once more, which has cost club legend Gennaro Gattuso his job as head coach. Marco Giampaolo of Sampdoria is on his way to replace him, and having coached Torreira at the club from which Arsenal signed him last year for £26 million, he is keen on having him in his team once more.
