Meunier open to PSG departure amid Arsenal links 0

Posted on June 05, 2019 by Veselin Trajkovic

Thomas Meunier, a reported target for Arsenal, has refused to rule out leaving Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Arsenal have been continuously linked with the 27-year-old as they seek experienced, quality defenders to add to their ranks. Meunier primarily plays on the right defensive flank and would likely serve therefore as serious competition, rather than backup, for Hector Bellerin. Apart from Arsenal, Manchester United have also reportedly expressed their interest, but Meunier has apparently poured some very cold water over that particular link by labeling the win of the 20-time English champions over PSG in this season’s Champions League as “the biggest joke in football“.

Arsenal interested in Meunier 0

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Thomas Meunier from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The Belgian international started his career with R.E. Virton in Belgian second, and later third division, back in 2008/09. Three years later, he moved to Club Brugge, for which he played a total of 188 games and scored 19 goals in all competitions over five seasons. He arrived to the Parc Des Princes in 2016, when Unai Emery was the man in the dugout.

Arsenal to move for Nkunku 0

Arsenal are still interested in Christopher Nkunku of Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports in France.

The 21-year-old, turning 22 in November this year, has spent his entire professional career at the Parc Des Princes. He is primarily a central midfielder, though his powerful bursts of pace render him quite capable of deputizing on either attacking flank. He was involved in the Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting incident last weekend as the former Stoke City striker thoroughly embarrassed himself by failing to hit the gaping net from the goal-line itself, and actually clearing the effort of Nkunku off the line.

Guendouzi reveals PSG interest 0

Matteo Guendouzi has revealed Paris Saint-Germain were interested in signing him prior to his arrival to the Emirates.

Guendouzi passed through the French title holders’ youth system before joining Ligue 2 side Lorient in 2015.

Speaking to French outlet Canal +, the 18-year-old confirmed a number of clubs, including PSG, were interested in his services. However, as soon as he learned of Arsenal’s involvement, his mind was made up. He knew that this was the right club for him and he focused all his attention on joining the Gunners. The club spent £7million on his signature, not a small amount given his age and the fact that he had no previous first-team experience in top-tier football.

Closing in on Adli

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of teenager Yacine Adli, according to the Guardian.

The 17-year-old midfielder has worked with manager Unai Emery at his former club Paris Saint-Germain, and he has reportedly rejected an offer of a professional contract from the French club and decided to follow Emery to the Emirates.

The contract that he’s being offered by Arsenal is for three years, and it includes options for extensions.

Wenger backs Emery 0

A curious story broke out today. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken to Bein Sports, and apparently, he offered his full support to the much-criticized Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery. A large number of media outlets across Europe have already proclaimed Emery as good as gone, following their exit from this season’s Champions League to Real Madrid.

Wenger however spoke in his defence. One thing Wenger strongly pointed out is that a club like Paris Saint-Germain, who have invested a lot of money in their team, need stability first and foremost. He said the giants from his country were always the club he supported, and that such a project needs stability in order to progress. Also, the Frenchman explained that he considers Emery a competent manager.

According to The Sun, Paris Saint-Germain could make an approach for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez when the January transfer window opens. The Ligue 1 side would be able to sign Alexis on a pre-contract deal due to him being a free agent the following summer, and Manchester City are reportedly worried that the French club could agree terms with the Chilean due to their greater finances.

Wenger: Something will happen to the transfer system in 12 months 0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes there will be an overhaul in the transfer system within a year, after seeing fees spiral over the summer. Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for around €200m, and have also signed Kylian Mbappe for €150m – to be paid next year.

Germany chancellor Angela Merkel said Paris Saint-Germain’s spending was “incomprehensible” while adding that: “UEFA and FIFA should still adjust the rules to achieve a more sporting balance”. Wenger says change will come, perhaps in the next year, revealing how things aren’t working.

Arsenal dealt blow in pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain forward 0

Paris Saint-Germain will be snubbing all interest in forward Julian Draxler to ensure the 23-year-old stays in France, says Germany manager Joachim Low, reports Football.London.

Draxler has been linked with a move to Arsenal this summer after reports he was seeking an exit from the Parc des Princes. But Low believes PSG are desperate to keep him and won’t let him leave.

“I know for a fact that Paris don’t want to sell him. They are convinced of his outstanding qualities. He made such a big step forward there. I am convinced that he will come out on top at Paris. By now, he’s already playing a big role for us,” he said.

Alexis Sanchez 1/3 to stay at Arsenal 0

Posted on August 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Mirror, Arsenal will fight off interest from Manchester City for Alexis Sanchez this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger having the support of the board. City are believed to be lining up a £70m bid for the 28-year-old’s signature but the Gunners aren’t looking to sell for any price.

With Alexis having 12 months on his deal with Arsenal this summer, a number of clubs were keen on his signature – Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Manchester City, as well as Real Madrid and Barcelona. However, City are the last club standing, with manager Pep Guardiola keen to renew acquaintances with the Chilean international.
