AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang has revealed that he could have moved to the Premier League prior to his switch to Italy, with Leicester, Everton and Arsenal all interested.
Arsenal appear likely to miss out on Rob Holding’s signature, with the club’s far from close to price-agreement.
The Gunners are claimed to have made an initial offer of £750,000 for the 20 year-old, which has been turned down, with the sides valuing the defender on completely different scales.
An incredible end to an incredible Premier League season saw Arsenal make it 21 years in a row that we have finished above our north London rivals Tottenham in the league table and it has sparked wild celebrations and widespread gloating from the Gunners faithful, but when the dust settles will the latest St. Totteringham’s day really have any impact on Arsenal and our future at all?
Paul Merson has recommended Jermain Defoe to Arsenal for the upcoming transfer window, but for me that is a complete no-no.
The 33 year-old has enjoyed an exciting end to the Premier League season, helping his Sunderland side to escape from the relegation zone with a huge upturn in form.
Do Arsenal still have a chance of finishing above Tottenham this season?
Of course it will not be nice for Arsenal fans to finish behind our north London rivals Tottenham this season. It would have been a whole lot worse, however, if the spuds had managed to keep their momentum going and pip Leicester City to the title so we are all mightily relieved to see the Foxes of Claudio Ranieri hang on and finish off their fairytale season.
Just when it looked like the season, for Arsenal fans at least, was all neatly wrapped up with disappointment as wrapping paper and with a nice big ribbon of despair to top it off, a light has appeared at the end of the tunnel. It is only a faint light as yet but it does give the Gunners something to strive for in the remaining three games other than fending off the top four challenge of Manchester United.
It has been a pretty poor season all round for Arsenal and us long suffering Gooners, perhaps made even harder to take because of the higher expectations built up by a second FA cup trophy win in a row capping a brilliant end to last season. That positivity and optimism was further reinforced during pre-season and even after the shock defeat by West Ham on the opening day of the Premier League campaign, the Gunners were looking good for a first title in 12 years.
