There was consternation amongst Arsenal supporters this week when it was revealed that one of our most promising youngsters, Reiss Nelson, was set to go to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. It was believed he was being sold as he had not agreed a new contract with the Gunners, but now it is being revealed that is not the case.
Arsenal’s most significant signing of the summer, Lucas Torreira, could have slipped from our grasp if his agent had had his way, as he wanted his client to join Napoli rather than move to the Emirates. Torreira’s agent Pablo Bentacur said: “It’s a pity, I’m sorry Ancelotti wasn’t there at the start of the negotiation.
Last season Reiss Nelson broke into the first team squad and he impressed us all consiering his age and experience, but now it seems the youngster has agreed with Arsenal to go out on loan to the Bundesliga for this season to give him regular first team football, which is not such a bad idea…
Well maybe the Arsenal negotiating team have finally cracked a deal with Aaron Ramsey, with just three days of the European transfer window to go. The Sun reports this evening….
AARON RAMSEY still hasn’t signed a new contract at Arsenal – but that could be about to change.
You would think after last years hassle with Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal would not have let Aaron Ramsey stall on agreeing a new contract so long, so that now there is only one week left to try and offload him to a foreign side if he continues to refuse to sign.
There has been endless discussion about whether Arsenal should sell Aaron Ramsey if he refuses to sign a new contract extension with the Gunners, and we literally have just ten days to find a solution or risking him walking away on a free transfer next summer.
So the big Arsenal clearout continues as the club has officially confirmed that three players have completed their moves to different Serie A clubs. Yesterday the The Napoli president Aurelio de De Laurentiis wasn’t so sure that they would sign David Ospina, but it has now been confirmed on the Arsenal website that a one-year loan deal had been finalised. They reported: Goalkeeper David Ospina has joined Serie A side Napoli on a season-long loan.
Arsenal used to be renowned for training their youngsters in the Arsenal way and then integrating them seamlessly into the Gunners first team, but lately there are more and more of our promising youngsters moving abroad to lesser teams where at least they can get a chance at the the first team. Most of them seem to move to Belgian orDutch sides lately, but Stephy Mavdidi must be extra promising, as he has been snapped up by Juventus!
