There have been many many Arsenal rumours regarding our two classy keepers that have no chance of supplanting Petr Cech from his Number One spot at the moment, with David Ospina being expected to go to Fenerbahce, while Wojciech Szczesny was closely linked with Napoli until Juventus supposedly stepped in with an offer.
Over the past couple of weeks, there has been a lot of speculation over the future of the Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, who has been linked with a return to his hometown club Barcelona with some sources in the media even claiming that a £44 million deal was in place to take the highly-rated Spaniard back to the Nou Camp.
The Nigerian youngster Henry Onyekuru has been very closely linked with a move to Arsenal for the last few weeks, but his latest comments make it clear that his agent is talking to many clubs all over Europe but he is demanding that he will be guaranteed to be playing regular first team football, something that Arsene Wenger would certainly not agree to given the choice of ‘world class’ strikers that we already have at the Emirates.
Arsenal fans are pleading on social media for their club to sign Diego Costa from Chelsea this summer, with the striker definitely on the move this summer. The Spanish international revealed that manager Antonio Conte has told him that he is not a part of his plans for the coming campaign, with Romelu Lukaku strongly linked as his replacement.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been widely criticised in the past, especially in recent seasons, for leaving it too late to make moves in the transfer market and in some cases, not making moves at all. This trend has more often than not resulted in the Gunners having a patchy start to the campaign, as was the case last season when an Arsenal side with no defence lost at home to Liverpool in the season-opener.
Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has stated that he is by the phone at all times, ready to talk business as he seeks three big arrivals this summer. The Gunners boss is believed to have been tasked with getting our transfer business sorted out quickly this summer, and is not resting on his laurels as he looks to meet those targets.
Olivier Giroud scored a hat-trick for France last week, and straight after the game he declared that he “wanted to win titles” with Arsenal. Now he has reiterated that he has a contract with the Gunners, but with his lack of playing time last season he doesn’t want to repeat that experience in the next campaign and will be considering his options.
After months of speculation and numerous reports in the media, Arsenal have finally announced the club’s first signing of the summer. The Gunners’ have released a statement saying that the Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac has joined the club on a long-term deal. Kolasinac, who’s contract at the Veltins Arena expired over the summer, has joined on a free transfer.
