Arsenal to step up Partey interest 0

Posted on July 01, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have intensified their interest in signing Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The 27-year old midfield powerhouse has played 42 times for Diego Simeone’s side in all competitions this season. He scored three goals and provided no more than one assist, but it’s hardly relevant for a player whose primary duty is to protect the back line by positioning himself directly in front of them and fight for every ball.

Arsenal considering Wolfsburg’s Wout Weghorst 0

Posted on June 30, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are apparently contemplating a move for VfL Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst. That, at least, is what the press in Germany are saying at the moment.

At the age of 27, Weghorst is Wolfburg’s top scorer this season, with 20 goals from 42 appearances in all competitions for his current club. Standing 6’5″ tall, he is obviously a threat from the air, but he’s quite good with his feet too. He passed through the ranks at several Dutch clubs before eventually moving to the Bundesliga side from AZ Alkmaar in 2018, and he has managed to earn four caps with Netherlands so far.

Should Arsenal move for Fraser on a free transfer? 0

Posted on June 19, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Four of the five Bournemouth players whose contracts are about to expire have agreed to and signed extensions, enabling them to play for the club for the rest of the Premier League season. The situation required all clubs to find such solution regarding the soon-to-be free agents, as the last few rounds are scheduled to break through the end of June deadline.

The one player that refused to do so is winger Ryan Fraser, and manager Eddie Howe revealed in a press conference today (Friday) that the Scottish winger won’t be involved at all anymore. He only wants players fully focused on the battle against relegation which his team is now facing.

Arteta discusses Aubameyang & Saka’s Arsenal future 0

Posted on June 16, 2020 by Harry Kettle

If you ask enough times you’re bound to get an answer, and ahead of Arsenal’s game against Manchester City tomorrow, plenty of reporters wanted to use Mikel Arteta‘s pre-match press conference as a way to ask the Spaniard about two specific players – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka.

The pair have both been linked with a move away from the Emirates in the midst of ongoing contract negotiations, and given the current climate, that’s the last thing the club needs. Instead of shying away from the topic, though, Arteta was more than happy to answer any questions put in front of him.

Aubameyang and Cedric deals yet to be agreed 0

Arsenal are yet to agree a contract extension for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as a loan extension for Cedric Soares to enable him to finish the season at the Emirates, according to reports.

Aubameyang is probably the hottest subject regarding the Gunners and their potential transfers. The captain is under contract until next summer, and plenty of speculative reports have suggested that his decision on whether to extend the deal would depend on whether Mikel Arteta’s team manage to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Meanwhile, the club are believed to planning to sell him this summer if an agreement cannot be found, in order to avoid losing him for free.

Lacazette set for contract talks amid Atletico interest 0

Arsenal are set to hold talks over a new contract with Alexandre Lacazette amid the interest in his services coming from Atletico Madrid, according to ESPN.

The club still face uncertainty over the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this summer, but they are apparently adamant that they won’t be parting ways with both strikers. The pair are good friends, but both of them are keen to hear and consider Arsenal’s long-term vision under Mikel Arteta before making their respective decisions, especially in the light of the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost all players except Mesut Ozil have agreed to take a 12.5% pay cut, with the German still earning his £350,000 per week.

Arsenal hopeful of Aubemayang signing a new deal 0

Arsenal are hopeful that their good relationship with the father and agent of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will help them convince the captain to sign a new deal soon, according to The Telegraph.

There will hardly be any Arsenal fan who needs reminding of the crucial contribution the Gabonese forward has been making for the Gunners. Arguably the only consistent source of goals in this team despite often being shunted to the left wing to help accommodate Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe, Aubameyang has so far scored 61 goals and assisted his teammates 13 times in 97 appearances in the Arsenal shirt.

‘Lean’ transfer window ahead for Arsenal 0

Posted on May 27, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

As the Premier League and the 20 clubs competing in it prepare for a return to action behind closed doors next month, the time-frame of the upcoming transfer window remains undetermined. The extent of the financial consequences of the current situation, the effect that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on all clubs, is also yet to be fully felt.

One thing that remains unchanged is that Arsenal, like every other top club across Europe, continue to be linked with a large number of potential signings. However, Matt Law of The Telegraph claims that the Gunners, along with their fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur, wont have any money to spend on incoming transfers unless they sell some of their top stars.

Arsenal to bring back Malen? 0

Posted on March 09, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal are once again being linked with a swoop to bring Donyell Malen from PSV Eindhoven back to the club.

Malen joined Arsenal’s U-18 outfit from Ajax’s U-17s back in 2015. He quickly progressed through the ranks, but in 2017 he was allowed to go back to Holland for only £500,000. He then joined PSV’s U-21 side and earned promotion to the first team a year later. His development continued apace, and he is now among the more exciting attacking prospects of European football. This season, he has made a total of 25 appearances, during which he scored 17 goals and laid on nine assists.

Arsenal reopen Aubameyang talks 0

Posted on February 26, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal have reopened the talks over a new contract with the representatives of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to the Mirror.

The Gabonese is tied to the club until the summer of 2021, which means he will enter the final 12 months of the deal this summer if a new one isn’t signed by then. That could force Arsenal to seriously consider selling their arguably best player at the moment, and that is never good for a club’s image. There were talks over a new deal during the first half of the season, until reports came from Spain claiming the 31-year-old had put them on hold ahead of the winter transfer window, until he learned how serious Barcelona are about their intention to sign him.
