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.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said that he is proud of his players after the win against Everton in the Premier League. He said that each player gave their best on the pitch and this is why they managed to beat Everton 5-2.
The French manager said that the club had been criticised during recent times for their inconsistent results and he believes that this was the right way for them to respond.
Alexandre Lacazette became the most expensive Arsenal player ever when he arrived to the Emirates Stadium on July 5 of 2017 as the French attacker had a price tag of €53 million in addition to potential bonuses depending on his own performances and how Arsenal manages to perform or accomplish for the current and future seasons.
Neither Arsenal or Arsene Wenger are widely known for their tendency of spending high amounts of cash on a consistent basis but every now and then a significant large fee is splashed out for specific highly-rated players. Read More
Arsenal reportedly interested in Real Madrid star Marco Asensio.
The very talented player can be the long term replacement for Chile international Alexis Sanchez. While Manchester United and Juventus are also keen on signing the player, Arsenal have a unique stand point in luring him to north London.
The reported huge interests in Gunners’ stars Sanchez, MesutOzil, etc seem to have cooled with time. If Sanchez were to leave now, Arsenal could push for the player to join permanently but any move now would be a loan deal at best. Real Madrid would likely want to keep hold of the gifted forward. French moneybags Paris Saint Germain are also top on the list for Asensio’s signature, particularly with the sensational bid for Sanchez and Barcelona playmaker Neymar.
Arsenal are also monitoring the situation at Kings Power Stadium. Leicester City reduced their valuation of RiyadMahrezto £40 million, according to reports. The Algeria international seems keen on leaving the former Premier League side this summer after an underwhelming performance last term.
Tottenham Hotspur, AS Roma and Arsenal are hoping to sign the 2016 PFA Player of the Year. Roma earlier submitted a £30 million bid for the 26-year old but the Foxes rejected it. They wanted £50 million for the player but have now reduced it to £40 million. If any of these sides offer that range and the player seems interested, Mahrez might leave in the next few weeks, reports reveal.
Wenger admires the former Le Havre star and could sign him this summer. The Gunners are still pushing for Thomas Lemarbut Mahrez is a proven man in England so a deal could be agreed.
The Champions League football and situation at Spurs could influence the player’s preference for the club.
Lucas Perez will reportedly push through an exit from the Emirates this summer following a frustrating debut season in the Premier League.
The Spanish winger had attracted interest from the likes of Everton last summer before the Gunners hijacked the deal by triggering the £17.3m release clause on his contract.Perez followed to endure one of his toughest spells in professional as he found himself often on the substitutes’ bench while most of his playing time came in the Cup and Champions League games, where his side held an advantage in terms of team strength.
The former Deportivo man sustained a thigh injury in late March, and he therein struggled to make the matchday squad on a couple of occasions before making the bench for the FA Cup final versus Chelsea.Perez’s representative Rodrigo Fernandez Lovelle was quite open over his client’s situation, and suggested that the forward will move on after having been starved off first-team opportunities.
“The idea is to be able to play for another club,” Lovelle said. “We want to leave and Arsenal already know. Do you know anyone who is happy but has no opportunities?” he told PA Sport.
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger, who signed a new two-year deal earlier this week, revealed his desire to keep hold of the winger despite his limited first-team action last term.
“If I am the manager I would love to keep him but we have to sit down and see if he has a realistic chance to play,” he told Sky Sports, in May.
“He’s a top-quality striker but I couldn’t give him the games he wants and deserves, I confess that. I feel a bit sorry for him.”
Perez looks likely to leave Arsenal this summer in order to push for a national team berth and Lovelle insists that a temporary return to Deportivo would be a possibility.
