Arsenal is currently enjoying a lot of heat in the football gist market. They played very well against Liverpool, with the game ending 5-5. The Carabao Cup game had to be settled via spot kicks.
It was nice to see Mesut Ozil returning to action after the protracted beef with the management –as the coach claimed it wasn’t solely his decision. He influenced the game until he was pulled out.
The real reason for Alex Lwobi to leave Arsenal and join Everton has come out and it has been revealed by him. He decided to leave the club and join Everton on the deadline day of the summer transfer because as a player he wanted to take more and greater responsibilities towards the game. Lwobi has been playing for Arsenal since he was seven years of age. It was 2016 when he made a team appearance for the very first time from this club. After that, there was no looking back. He played more than 149 matches and scored a total of 15 goals from Arsenal too. So, Arsenal is very much special for him.
It was a surprise for many when Alex left Arsenal and joined Everton on the deadline day of the transfer window for a fee amounting to 34 million pounds. He too signed a contract for five years.
The playmaker might not feature for the Gunners on the pitch again as he sustained a pretty bad looking injury the other day playing in the return leg of the Europa League Round of 8.
Ramsey is going to move away from the club next season and his work for Arsenal for the remaining part of the ongoing season is almost done.
Arsenal are set to make a sensational move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney according to reports from England. It is claimed that the London club is looking at the young defender as a long-term replacement for veteran Nacho Monreal.
Monreal is currently on the last year on his contract amid claims that Arsenal has triggered a clause that extends his stay by an additional year. it is believed that Arsenal have been monitoring Tierney for a while and see the player as a long-term custodian of the position.
It is believed that Arsenal manager Unai Emery is desperate to find a replacement for Aaron Ramsey who will be leaving the club shortly. It is believed that he wants the club to sign Diego Suarez as a replacement for the Wales international but it is reported that the club is finding it hard to raise the money.
Arsenal is reportedly interested in a loan move and that a permanent deal will be done if the player impressed during the remaining game of the season.
Former Arsenal legend Ian Wright said that he is happy with what he has seen so far from the new Arsenal coach Unai Emery. He said that the team has improved a lot since last season and that he is sure that there is still more to come from the coach.
He said that the new coach has brought in more passion as well as some fresh ideas and he is sure that this has impacted the team performance. He said that there was a time where the players were playing without any real motivation and he feels that things have changed under the new coach.
Arsenal favourite Jens Lehmann has suggested that Bernd Leno may have to show more in training in order to displace Petr Cech for the number one role. The Gunners faithful were expecting a change between the sticks after Leno was recruited from Bayer Leverkusen during the summer but surprisingly it was Cech, who got the nod for the season opener.
Speaking to Sky Sports show The Debate, Lehmann admitted that he has no clue with regards to the training at his former club but believes Leno needs to put more effort to command a starting role in the Premier League, he said: “Arsenal is a big club. It’s a different style of game, a different expectation, and obviously a different competition. Sometimes these guys aren’t used to that competition.
Former Arsenal and England goalkeeper David Seaman believes that Unai Emery will have to sign at least 3 players if they want to compete for the top four next season. The former England goalkeeper said that Unai Emery should sign a good defensive midfielder in order to help shield the back four.
He said that Arsenal has always been good offensively but they need to improve at the back. He said that the team needs at least three players if they want to break into the top four.
Former Arsenal star Emmanuel Eboue has been offered the opportunity to return to Galatasaray in a coaching capacity prior to an exclusive interview with The Mirror. The Ivorian is currently serving a FIFA-imposed ban after failing to pay his agent during his time with the Super Lig outfit.
As a result, the veteran has been hurt financially, and he recently revealed that he is running from bailiffs and sleeping on a friend’s couch. To make things worse, he has been ordered to hand over his north London to his wife in a bitter divorce verdict, and he is fearful he could go penniless in the near future. He said: “I can’t afford the money to continue to have any lawyer or barrister. I am in the house but I am scared. Because I don’t know what time the police will come.”
Arsenal FC are desperate to secure the services of AS Monaco star Thomas Lemar, especially with the imminent departure of star player Alexis Sanchez this winter window. Mesut Ozil would also likely extend his deal if a top player like Lemar joins and Arsenal show ambition. Ozil could also walk for free this summer – a move that would surely wreck the club.
Arsenal almost got Lemar in the summer window after the French Ligue 1 side accepted the Premier League side’s unprecedented £90 million offer. However, the player refused a move to the Emirates when the offer came in on deadline day.
