There does seem to be a little more transparency than usual regarding Arsenal’s summer transfer plans, and the one target that has been mentioned most by the media is the the Turkish centre-back Caglar Soyuncu.
What next for Arsenal and Emery? by Beaveraldinho
There we have it. Out with the old and in with the new as they say. Loyal servants to the club Wenger, Cazorla and Mertesacker are out. Young Unai Emery is in. What should we expect and hope for in the coming window and season? Here is my take… feel free to lambast me in the comments section below!
I love the idea of Unai Emery taking a new broom to Arsenal and shaking up our underperforming bunch of overpaid Prima-Donnas, and that should include shipping out quite a few of the worst offenders.
So we have the very first signing of the post-Wenger era on the very same day that Unai Emery is confirmed as the new Arsenal manager, heralding a new era for the club, but also confirming that the Gunners are set to continue the Wenger-esque policy of buying up the top young talents of Europe and training them up at the Hale End Academy.
Just for a change Arsenal have not kept us on tenterhooks and made us wait ages for us to have our new manager confirmed, and they have already given out the official announcement on the Arsenal website.
To save time and energy I am just going to give you the complete statement from the club….
There have not been too many Arsenal transfer rumours around so far this summer, but one player we have been linked to consistently is the Turkish centre-back Caglar Soyuncu who has been earning rave reviews for his work at Freiberg. Only last week his agent made it clear that he wanted to move to England. “The main objective of the player is to play in the Premier League, that I can tell you at the moment,” Mustafa Dogru said. “We are negotiating with some clubs, but I can’t give the name of the clubs – I’m sorry.
Arsene Wenger was famous for bringing in unknown players at very cheap prices, like Takuma Asano, who was bought from Sanfrecce Hiroshima two years ago, but hasn’t been anywhere near the club as he waits to earn his work permit for the UK.
It may not have been confirmed yet but it would appear that the Arsenal management are nearly certain to appoint Mikel Arteta as Arsene Wenger’s successor, and they also seem keen on gathering a coaching team of former Arsenal heroes.
