Deadline Day business: Bellerin leaves, Tomiyasu arrives 0

Posted on September 01, 2021 by Veselin Trajkovic

The two transfers that were announced as imminent were completed late on Tuesday, the final day of the summer transfer window. Hector Bellerin has left the club to join Real Betis on loan, and Tahekiro Tomiyasu has arrived on a permanent deal from Bologna. Also, goalkeeper Alex Runarsson has joined Belgian side OH Leuven on loan.

The decade Bellerin spent at the Emirates has been marked by 239 first-team appearances, three FA Cup trophies and two Community Shields. There can be no doubt that the Spaniard gave all he had, even though his efforts were severely hampered by injuries. There is also a strange feeling that his time as an Arsenal player coincides with a period of the club gradually losing ground on their Premier League rivals, though that can hardly be put on his account.

Martinelli, Ryan and Odegaard make Europa League squad 0

Arsenal’s 25-man list for the knockout stages of the Europa League has been revealed, and as expected, there were a couple of changes compared to the one submitted for the group phase back in October.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Mesut Ozil missed out back then, and they both left the club in January. That may not be too relevant, but the departures of Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi, who were both on that list, certainly are as they opened up two spots for foreign players to be added. Those spots have now been filled by goalkeeper Mat Ryan and attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard, both of whom arrived last month on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion and Real Madrid, respectively.

CONFIRMED: Arsenal sign Runarsson 0

Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson from Dijon. The amount of the fee for this transfer remains undisclosed, but reports suggest Arsenal will be paying just over £1 million for the services of the Iceland international.

The Gunners parted ways with Emiliano Martinez recently, with the 27-year-old now gone to take the next step in his career at Aston Villa. This left them momentarily without a backup option for first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno, and that is where Runarsson comes in.

Kolasinac in Leverkusen talks

After goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who left to join Aston Villa, Sead Kolasinac could be the next senior player to leave the Emirates in this transfer window. According to PA Sport, the Bosnian left back is currently in talks with Bayer Leverkusen about a proposed return to Germany.

Kolasinac gradually lost his place on the left defensive flank to Kieran Tierney, and though Mikel Arteta has utilized him in a back three, some howling mistakes clearly indicated that he can’t be a long-term solution there either.
