Arsenal favourites for Upamecano? 0

Arsenal are at the head of the queue to sign RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to Tuttosport.

The report from the Italian outlet mostly deals with AC Milan’s interest in the 21-year-old, and its writer sees this development as a ‘mockery’ – that the club which Ivan Gazidis left to become the Rossoneri CEO should now surpass the seven-time European champions regarding a potential signing.

Boateng or Upamecano? 1

As the January transfer window slowly unfolds, Arsenal have been linked heavily with two players who could potentially boost the back line of the team. One of them is RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, young (21), talented, perceived by most as an old fashion centre-back – a player who ‘loves to defend’ as they say.

Adding such a player to the ranks probably wouldn’t solve much straight away. Every player who changes clubs, let alone leagues, needs time to adapt, to absorb the teachings and the tactical demands of the new coaching team. Experienced players usually get the hang of these issues much quicker than younger ones, and to expect a 21-year-old to come in and notably improve a defence that has been looking frail (to put it mildly) for years would seem a folly.

The January transfer window opens on New Year’s Day (Wednesday), and like every other club anywhere, Arsenal are preparing for a trip to the market. Whether they’ll end up selling or buying anything, or spend the month ‘just looking’, remains to be seen.

Temporary move to RB Leipzig a good one for Smith-Rowe’s career 0

One of the more surprising moves of the winter deadline day 2019 was Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe joining Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan until the end of the season. The highly-rated youngster has recently been sidelined due to injury. However, prior to the injury, the midfielder had only really featured in the cup competitions and his game time was limited in the Premier League.

I have to say that when Smith Rowe’s fellow talented youngster Reiss Nelson joined Hoffenheim on loan in the summer for this season I was surprised, as he looked like he could have played more first-team 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.

Arsenal eying up RB Leipzig goalkeeper 0

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to rival Chelsea and Atletico Madrid to sign RB Leipzig’s Hungarian goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi this summer.

Question marks remain about Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, who form has declined in the past few seasons. Cech’s poor form has led to the Gunners reportedly looking elsewhere for a replacement. It seems that Gulacsi has joined Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno on the list of possible goalkeeping arrivals this summer.

Gulacsi may seem familiar

The name Peter Gulasci may seem familiar to some Premier League fans, as the 27-year-old was once at Liverpool. However, he struggled for first-team action with Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina blocking his path to first team football.

According to the Independent, Emil Forsberg’s agent Hasan Cetinkaya has spoken out about RB Leipzig fending off interest for the winger this summer, suggesting the Bundesliga club owe it to the player to let him leave amid interest from Arsenal and a host of other sides.

“I and Emil have always accepted the club and the contracts with them. When Emil went there, the ambition was to take the team to the Bundesliga and then the Champions League. He has been involved with them all the way and broke records in their shirt,” he said.
