Arsenal boosted in defender chase as Chelsea resist terms

Chelsea are believed to be reluctant to agree to buy-back terms in their pursuit of Sergio Reguilon, which could open the door for Arsenal to land the defender.

The 23 year-old won this season’s Europa League competition whilst on loan with Sevilla, and played a key role with a number of impressive displays.

The left-back has since returned to the La Liga champions Real Madrid, but is believed to be behind both Ferland Mendy and first-choice Marcelo, while La Castilla are willing to sell, they want to include a buyback clause included in such a deal.

The Express (Citing AS as their source for Real’s buy-back request) claims that Chelsea could well refuse to agree to such a clause, which could leave Arsenal in the driving seat to sign the Spaniard.

The report also claims that we also have extra support in the deal thanks to our close relationship with his agent, Kia Joorabchian, who recently facilitated Arsenal moves for Willian, David Luiz and Cedric Soares inside the last 12 months.

Sky Germany also claims that we are in talks with Schalke 04 over a possible loan deal to send Sead Kolasinac back to his former side, which would free up space in the squad for a second left-back, although Bukayo Saka showed last season that he is more-than able as a make-shift option also.

Kieran Tierney may not welcome competition for his role however, especially from such a reputable target, but their will be plenty of matches for both to pick up plenty of minutes should we manage to beat Chelsea to his signature.

Would Arsenal be willing to accept a buy-back clause in such a signing?

    OT..Looks like the chavs will sign Malang Sarr…. what a window they’ve had so far! The pressure is on FL to deliver next season….

    1. Uzi Ozil says:

      Yes Sue. The pressure is really on Lampard. They have done decently thus far in the window. Sarr and Silva both free agents and decent defenders. Silva aint the man he used to be But he can still do a decent job. Sarr is the player that impressed me though. Saw him command that defense with Nice last season. Werner, the Ajax Winger, Sarr and Thiago Silva. Also they are in for that Bayern Leverkuson player (Havertz) and Chiwell as well…

      Well, we have Gabriel…Oh yeah, we got Gabriel. 😊

      1. Sue says:

        It’s a pity Sarr has ended up there… and a shame they’ve had such a good window 😂 Although, we’ve ended up with one of their best players, so it’s not all that bad!! Haha!!

        Excited about Gabriel, Uzi… but want more… at least 2 more!! The clock is ticking……

      Going full FIFA career mode doesn’t always work out. But yes, nonetheless an impressive window from Chelsea.

      1. Sue says:

        Let’s face it, RSH, they needed it! Still need a GK though…

        1. RSH says:

          we need it too Sue!

  2. zTOM says:

    We really don’t need a LB.

    A RB maybe if BOTH Ainsley/Bellerin rumours are to be believed but otherwise that’s a waste of our transfer budget.

    After Gabriel, a DM is our #1 priority!!

  3. gunnerforlife says:

    If the rumour about Belarin and AMN leaving us is true, we really need a RB more than a LB, bbecause than only Soares will be our recognised RB. If Kola leaves, Saka is more than capable to be a back up for Tierney. As it is, Saka is much much more needed than Kola.

  4. A J says:

    Bellerin news coming in at pace.

    Pirlo fancies him for Juve.

    PSG / Juve, the boy has a reputation out there ?????? (if all rumours accurate).

    Do these people not realise he is defensively poor ?

    Anyway.

    With the AMN Wolves move looking on the cards, we need to be looking for a right back – Cedric’s not the answer.

    However, the signs are Mikel could be looking at a 3 going into the new season – it’s worth bearing in mind though, both Gabriel & Saliba will need time to adjust (both lefties is interesting).

    I suspect each will be used for the differing competitions over the early part of the season.

    Let’s see who we ship out, leaving canny reinvestment crucial.

    Put it this way, with EDU & Mikel having “hands on” our transfer dealings I have a lot more faith !

      AJ, a top post and in particular the final and thrilling sentence!

    2. Davi says:

      Whether the AMN and Bellerin moves happen or not, would not be surprised to see Saliba filling in at RB quite a bit next year

    3. Khadii says:

      Saliba is right footed.. Not a lefty

      1. A J says:

        I stand corrected Khadii – and thank goodness for that !

        It is of course Mari that is left footed, along with Gabriel.

        I was getting concerned re’ overload on the left !!

        Should have realised earlier, especially given Mikel is desperately trying to address balance issues with the side.

  5. Sue says:

    Oooh we have a friendly tonight… 6pm @ MK Dons… it’s being shown on Arsenal.com…. nice one!!

  6. Davi says:

    Looks like nonsense. He looks like a top player but not one we need. Would be ridiculous to sell AMN to fund a move for a second top class LB when it looks like we’re also losing 3 of our 4 first team CMs.

  7. Lucia says:

    Some fans tend to complain about most things we do. Chelsea signing a 35 year old Silva who has never played a min of pl football but yet I’ve not seen there fan opposing that move. If selling AMN to wolves will afford us the fund to find either partey or Aourar then so be it. And if we are selling bellerin don’t we think Arteta knows we are already short on that department? Offcourse he would have someone in mind to replace him since it’s likely Jodi ossei tutu is on his way to Cardiff city. And let’s not forget Arteta prefers a 3 man defense and need I remind anyone that Gabriel can play either at lb or cb. Man is versatile you need watch how he played last season. And if I read well he came to us not because of money, so he wants to play. And for all his critics I would rather see the back of holding,Chambers,sokratis first before mustafi whom can also cover at right back. Let’s try to be objective as this is not football manager. On a normal circumstances Gabriel will go for nothing less than 35 to 40ml or Aourar will be 70 if haverts is 90… So let’s wait until the transfer is closed before criticising them..

    1. Davi says:

      The concern I have is: Partey or aourar is not enough. We are apparently losing Guendouzi, torreira and possibly Ceballos – we need minimum 2 to replace them. AMN could have filled one of those spots or at least been a backup. I’m not counting Willock yet as I don’t think he’s really proven himself a reliable option, although I hope he continues to improve.

  8. Siamois says:

    Apparently Rodgers still wants Tierney to replace Chidwell if he goes to Chelsea!I don’t think MA would sell him,no way unless they offer the 50M from the sale of Chidwell even then I’m not sure.

    1. RSH says:

      I just doubt Tierney is for sale. We are under zero pressure to sell him. Ive seen them linked with Tagliafico more then Tierney as well.
