Rumours: Arsenal to reignite Fekir interest? 0

Posted on November 11, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta recently admitted the squad under his command was ‘short’, and speaking to the press ahead of the Wolverhampton Wanderers clash on Saturday evening at the Molineux, he repeated the stance that the club would be in the transfer market in January for reinforcement, should the right players become available.

According to recent reports, the positions the boss aims to add depth to are attacking flanks and centre midfield.

Arsenal have been named by a host of sources as one of the clubs interested in signing Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk next summer.

The 21-year-old winger recently spoke about the prospect of playing in the Premier League in the future, and having said it would’ve been hard for him to say no to such a move, he even mentioned Arsenal as a club whose shirt he could see himself wearing. Apparently, the club already tried to sign Mudryk this summer, but Shakhtar’s valuation of around £30 million for the services of the player whose contract still has four years left to run was deemed too much.

We’ve all known for quite some time that there are deeply embedded problems within this Arsenal squad, but few could’ve imagined that it went quite so deep. The club knew that a win over Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby would seal a return to Champions League football, and yet, they managed to lose to both Spurs and now Newcastle United to ensure they’re left with mission impossible on the final day.

They need to beat Everton and hope Norwich somehow beat Tottenham for them to stand a chance.

After the loss to the Magpies last night, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta couldn’t hide over his disappointment.

Rumours: Arsenal to battle Newcastle for Luis Paqueta? 0

An interesting (the word is used loosely here) story has recently come from Newcastle-based local outlet Chronicle Live and their chief Newcastle United writer, Lee Ryder. Apparently, Arsenal could be locked in a battle against the Magpies this summer for the services of Olympique Lyon’s Lucas Paqueta.

Ryder believes Newcastle have already beaten Arsenal, or as he puts it, ‘caught them napping’, when it came to their pursuit of Bruno Guimaraes. Buoyed by their new ownership, the Geordies were able to pay as much as it took for Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas to agree to sell, while the Gunners reportedly moved on to pursue Arthur Melo and failed to reach an agreement with Juventus.

Arteta looks back at solid Newcastle win 0

Arsenal needed to get back on track after their disappointing loss to Liverpool and in the early kick-off on Saturday, they did just that. The Gunners were in fine form at the Emirates as they overcame a nervy first half to see off the challenge of Newcastle United.

It was a win that ensures they remain in fifth place and with a busy winter schedule ahead, that’s a great position to be in.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the result and where they go from here

Arsenal vs Newcastle – Preview 0

Posted on November 25, 2021 by Harry Kettle

Another weekend of Premier League action is almost upon us with a full slate of top flight excitement for us to sink our teeth into. One game we’re going to be taking an especially close look at goes down in North London as Arsenal prepare to lock horns with Newcastle United.

The Gunners will begin the weekend in the Saturday early kick-off slot and while they’ll be viewed as the favourites, underestimating the Magpies this season as a result of their place in the table feels like a misstep.

Newcastle to join Lacazette race? 0

Newcastle United are reportedly set to join the race for the signature of Alexandre Lacazette when his contract with Arsenal expires at the end of the season.

The French striker recently received high praise from manager Mikel Arteta, but there is still no news about a potential new deal with the Gunners. He has fallen down the pecking order with the boss deciding to reinstate captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the central attacking role at the start of the season, while youngsters Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe continue to impress on the flanks.

Arsenal and Newcastle agree Joe Willock transfer 0

After a few months of uncertainty, Arsenal have reached an agreement with Newcastle United over the transfer of Joe Willock, this time on a permanent basis. The story was broken by The Athletic‘s David Ornstein first, and it has since been confirmed by other outlets as well.

The 21-year-old midfielder was sent on loan to St. James Park for the second half of last season, where, preforming a box-to-box in a three-man midfield, he impressed to a degree sufficient for Newcastle boss Steve Bruce to ask the club to see what they can do to keep him at the club. He scored eight goals in 14 appearances for the Magpies. At the Emirates, Mikel Arteta was unable to offer Willock more than a squad role, given that his qualities, best suited to the system employed by Newcastle, aren’t that important in Arsenal’s preferred 4-2-3-1 shape.

Arsenal have failed in their pursuit of Emiliano Buendia of Norwich City. The attacking midfielder is on his way to Villa Park, Aston Villa have officially confirmed.

According to Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley, Arsenal’s interest in the Argentinian was genuine, and a concrete bid for his services was submitted several days ago only to be beaten at the test. It’s not known if the Gunners tried harder by presenting another offer after the first got knocked down, or simply gave up, turning elsewhere to get what they need. But be that as it may, Buendia is on his way to Aston Villa, pending a medical set to take place after Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Colombia on Tuesday evening, so that’s that.

Newcastle to test Arsenal resolve on Willock 0

Posted on May 21, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

Newcastle United are still determined to try and sign Joe Willock from Arsenal on a permanent transfer this summer, despite Gunners boss Mikel Arteta insisting the 21-year-old, who joined the Magpies on loan at the very end of the winter transfer window, would return to North London for pre-season and be given a chance to fight for a place in the team for 2021-22.
