Arsenal blow as their target insists he wants to remain at his present club 

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Ajax’s Noussair Mazraoui, but he wants to keep playing for the Dutch giants.

The Gunners will likely lose Hector Bellerin this summer and they would ideally want to replace the Spaniard even though they have Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares as options in that position.

Estadio Deportivo via Team Talk reported last month that the Gunners have plans to make the young Moroccan the replacement for Bellerin who is expected to join another club before next season.

He has just a year left on his current deal at Ajax and could move to the Emirates for just 10m euros.

However, he was speaking about his future recently and insisted that it isn’t his intention to leave Ajax right now.

He revealed that he is in talks with the Dutch champions over a contract extension and would ideally want to stay.

But he insisted that his future would be determined by how the talks between his agent and the club go.

“I don’t want to leave yet, but it depends on how the talks go, that’s just waiting,” said Mazraoui via Voetbal4u

“We are in talks and need to see what comes out. This is my club and this is already my sixth season. I wouldn’t want to leave very soon. I’ll leave it to my agent, but I hope it works out. I look good here. I’m definitely looking forward to a good season without injuries.”

  1. Get mert muldur or takehiro tomiyashu for RB wouldn’t cost more than £20m.

    OT: Sassuolo CEO Carnevali to Sky: “We’re in talks for Locatelli with one club from abroad… and it’s really advanced. We’re gonna meet with Juventus in the next days, but there are no negotiations yet with Juve as Italian clubs are in difficult financial situation”. Flag of Italy #AFC #Juve

    Don’t count us out of signing locatelli yet.

  2. we should sign Raheem signing, Locatelli and Auoar. With these 3 signings, we are good to go

  3. I’m losing track of all these players we are supposedly being linked with, never heard of this guy.

    1. @Marty
      Don’t feel alone. This is about the 8th or 9th “blow” the club has taken on a player in this window, so far…😂😂😂😂

  4. Indeed you can count me among those who find the article headings over the top as they constantly highlight the devastation we should feel because we missed out on another Arsenal target. I wish they would just be a little more honest and not call them arsenal targets (in the headings especially as they do sometimes backtrack in the main article). In every case Arsenal itself has not said that they were a target and in most cases reputable media also has not said the player was an Arsenal target – not to mention the players are often names that no one has ever heard of.

  5. It’s starting to sound desperate for Arsenal with most of Arteta’s transfer kitty being invested in Ben White, a player who is optional. Rather than prioritise it appears that every player in Europe is being considered as a possible signing, according to the nitwit rumour mill at least. Somethings got to break in the next two weeks in any case or we’ll see more of those last minute confirmations which are the usual sort of dealings at Arsenal. With this lack of ambition in mind, I wonder how seriously ESR is considering the Villa offer. After all with Grealish gone he would be given the reigns by a manager who has more faith in him to develop long term. Also, Saka is now definitely in the spot light as a world class talent with years of potential. Will he and Arsenal resist the temptation to move on. Depressingly this may be the best way forward for Arsenal. They are of course worst case scenarios but it does appear that Kroenke’s 250million transfer kitty was just smoke and mirrors to appease the vulnerable believers. Reality is Arsenal have become a “holding club” trying to look like they are competitive rather than one which makes its own destiny.

  6. My problem is the slow way our board and the transfer negotiation team are handling things. Looks like if we don’t have money we are just waiting for a transfer fund from the sale of our own players in order to buy.
