Arsenal are one of the clubs credited with interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha this summer. The Brazil international was said to be keen on joining Barcelona and had even agreed personal terms with the Catalans, but the two clubs simply haven’t been able to reach an agreement over the transfer fee as Barcelona, still troubled by financial issues, refuse to meet Leeds’ reported valuation of £55 million.

Arsenal are obviously working hard on strengthening their ranks for the upcoming season. They’ve managed to convince Eddie Nketiah to sign a new contract and stay put, thus ensuring that the striker department isn’t left completely bare, and they’ve apparently completed the signing of midfielder Fabio Vieira from FC Porto, though we’re still waiting for the Gunners to confirm that as the Portuguese club already have.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are now working on a deal to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax. Primarily a centre-back, the 24-year-old Argentinian can play as a fullback on either side as well, and as a defensive midfielder is tasked with that role.

Arsenal Football Club rarely like to make life easy for themselves and that was particularly true over the weekend when they played host to Leeds United at the Emirates. A Tottenham draw against Liverpool swung the door wide open for the Gunners to extend their advantage over their North London rivals and while they did eventually do that with a 2-1 win, they had to hold on towards the end of the game with Leeds battling for their Premier League lives.

After the full-time whistle had blown, manager Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on how it all went down.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are the two main clubs in the hunt for fourth place and that much has become obvious as the weeks have progressed. Now, in the upcoming few days, the Gunners have a huge opportunity to put some distance between themselves and their North London rivals as they prepare to play host to Leeds United the Emirates.

Tottenham have a tough game on their hands against Liverpool and so, by default, Arsenal should see this as a huge opportunity – with Mikel Arteta confirming how important this fixture is in his pre-match media commitments.

Arsenal knew December was going to be a crucial period for them in their push to finish in the top five and thus far, they’ve been handling it pretty well – after an initial blip, that is. The Gunners were feeling confident heading into their clash with Leeds United over the weekend, in a game that quite literally was the match of the day as a result of COVID-19 postponements elsewhere.

In his post-match interview, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta spoke about the win and what’s next for the club and the league.

Arsenal are riding a nice wave of momentum right now and while the popular opinion is that it could come to an end at any moment, many Gunners fans are choosing to sit back and enjoy the ride – as they should.

They’re finally starting to break into the top half in the Premier League and in doing so they’ve not only bested rivals Tottenham Hotspur, but they’ve also entered into the conversation for a top six run. It’s going to be easier said than done for them to actually get there but the fact they’re even in the mix – or could be soon – is a great sign.

Arsenal knew they had to put in a strong performance last night if they wanted to beat Leeds United – and in the end, that’s exactly what they did. The Gunners beat Leeds 4-2 in what turned out to be a pretty dramatic game of football, and while this isn’t the silver bullet that will solve all of the club’s problems, they did look far more confident going forward than they have done in a long time.

Mikel Arteta spoke to the media after one of the more exhilarating encounters of his tenure so far.

A lot has been said about Arsenal so far this season, and understandably so, and that has carried over into the last few games due to a relatively poor run of form. However, the hope from many Gunners supporters is that when they match up against Leeds, they can prove that there are levels to playing attacking football and how to do it at the very highest level.

We’re expecting this to be a war, and while this may be a bit over the top, we do believe that this has the potential to be an incredibly entertaining encounter – perhaps the best of the season so far in the Premier League.

Arsenal will go to war with Leeds United at the Emirates on Sunday, knowing that a win would be absolutely integral to their hopes of finishing in the top six this season. Losing again really isn’t an option when you take a quick glance at the Premier League table, regardless of how well Marcelo Bielsa’s men may be playing right now.

Before the Gunners lock horns with Leeds, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about several topics as the race for a place in Europe goes on.
