Arsenal and Man United battling it out for £9 Million midfielder

Arsenal and Manchester United are claimed to be going head-to-head in the race to sign Sivert Mannsverk from Molde.

The Gunners have made waves in recent windows by signing a number of impressive young players, with many of those having made immediate impacts in the first-team squad under Mikel Arteta, and Sivert could well be the next future star to make the move to the Emirates.

We are claimed to be in a two-way battle with rivals Man United for his signature however, Jeunex Footeax reports, with the 20 year-old said to be available for around £9 Million.

Our midfield is believed to be an area we are looking to improve at present, although Albert Sambi Lokonga is currently waiting in the wings for his chance to make an impact on the first-team. Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey has stamped their authority on the two starting roles in the side, with Martin Odegaard looking immovable in the advanced central role, and it will be interesting to see what anyone could do to try and break ahead of the trio in Arteta’s pecking order.

We also have the likes of Charlie Patino impressing on loan, who could well be earmarked for his chance to test that formidable pairing for regular minutes in the coming seasons, and Mannsverk could potentially be his long-term partner through the middle if we can get his signing over the line.

  1. Arsenal has had a fantastic time in signing young players ,just to name a few Patrick viera £ 3.5 million from Ac Milan and Cesc fabregas for free from Barcelona’s youth team, and probably the biggest buys was Thierry Henry from juventus for £ 11 million ,where at juventus he was played on the wing which he didn’t adapt to, so Wenger saw something in him that made him a great success ,playing him as striker and the rest he made history becoming Arsenals all time goal scorer ,a invincible and so many cups and also the league’s, he will always be remembered as a legend, along with Dennis Bergkamp who Arsenal signed for £ 7.5 million from Inter Milan , Bergkamp was the classiest player on a ball and his goals were amazing , especially the one against Newcastle at st James park.

    1. Bergkamp is still our most expensive signing ever if you adjust for football inflation which is a crazy fact.

    2. Martinelli and Marquinhos recently too.

      I’m hoping that if Mudryk comes then he’s earmarked for converting to a striker Henry-style. If he could play well in that role, it would be like fielding the product of crossing Thierry Henry with Usain Bolt.

  2. “Claimed,” “Could be,” ” Reported,” Not exactly what you might call TAKING THE POSITIVES, is it!!
    More like taking something else, which rhymes with” this”!

  3. Interesting looking player. His lung-busting runs from midfield were right to be highlighted. He looks like he can play the ball a bit, and likes a one-two, though it was only a short highlight reel. I would have liked to have seen more of his tackling and his passing range but he looks like a decent prospect all the same

  4. Mikel Merino is a player from Real Sociedad ive always thought would be a outstanding buy to partner Partey in midfield and with the way Arteta plays Xhaka now even more so as Merino has more pace then Xhaka and is a far more well rounded player then Xhaka especially in attack.
