It’s been a tough few months for fans of Arsenal Football Club to round out 2020, but as we look ahead to the remainder of 2021, it does feel like there are some reasons to be positive. Mikel Arteta is starting to show signs of life as Gunners boss and with the January transfer window now upon us, it’s time to see whether or not Arsenal can really build a squad that wants to fight for this club.

Arsenal were on a dreadful run of form prior to the weekend, but out of nowhere, they were able to pull off arguably their best result of the season so far as they beat London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates. The win may not entirely take the pressure off of Mikel Arteta’s shoulders, but it definitely proved what this side are capable of.

While everyone loves seeing Arsenal play every weekend, it can sometimes be nice to sit back and see what else is on offer whilst we wait to see what the Gunners can do on Monday Night Football. We’ve already seen a handful of intriguing games take place across the Premier League, especially including teams that Arsenal will be battling it out with in the top four race, with Manchester United and Chelsea both struggling despite late goals that helped them to pick up three points and one point respectively.

Atletico keen on Torreira loan, Arsenal consider Partey alternatives 0

Atletico Madrid are keen to secure a loan deal for Lucas Torreira, according to Sky Sports, and what’s more, they’re increasingly confident about getting such a deal done soon.

The two clubs are currently locked in negotiations. While the Spanish side wish for a temporary move at this point, Arsenal are keen to make it permanent with Torreira having no place in manager Mikel Arteta’s plans, and they need the funds potentially generated through that sale in order to sign a midfielder who would be of more use to the Gunners’ boss. Along with outcasts Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi, Torreira is yet to appear on a matchday team-sheet this season.

BREAKING: Arsenal sign Willian 0

Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer. The winger has signed a three-year contract.

With his contract set to expire this summer, Willian was reportedly in constant negotiations with Chelsea over an extension, which intensified in the last few months as manager Frank Lampard reiterated his desire to keep hold of the player. However, Chelsea stood firm in their stance not to offer a contract longer than two years, which Willian obviously felt was unacceptable. Arsenal readily pounced and made the offer of a three-year deal which the player had been hoping for, wanting to remain in London.

Willian has reportedly passed his medical ahead of the proposed move to Arsenal.

The 32-year-old revealed his decision to leave Stamford Bridge after seven years in an open letter to the Chelsea supporters on Sunday. Apparently, despite the player not making any waves regarding the wages on offer at Chelsea, the Blues simply refused to meet his request for the duration of the proposed new contract to be set at a minimum of three years. Arsenal jumped to the chance and quickly informed the winger he would be getting a three-year deal if he agrees to move to north London.

There have been rumours flying around for quite some time now regarding the future of Chelsea and Brazil star Willian, and now, it finally seems as if we’re starting to see some movement. Arsenal have seemingly made it crystal clear that they’re interested in the possibility of signing him, and on the flip side, we’ve heard about Willian’s displeasure after the Blues have failed to really make him a priority.

On Instagram yesterday, Willian confirmed that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge in search of pastures new.

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.

Arsenal in Willian talks 0

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.
