Arsenal fears losing top youngster as his contract talks stall

Arsenal is worried that their fans may turn on them again as they face losing the teenage star, Kido Taylor-Hart.

The 18-year-old is in the final few weeks of his current scholarship at the club and he has been in fine form for their academy side.

The Gunners face the prospect of losing him in the coming days and that will be another bitter blow for their fans.

They have enjoyed watching him progress in their youth group and some tip him to become a key member of Mikel Artetaโ€™s team in the future.

The club has been trying its best to get him on a new professional deal, but they have not made progress, according to Sun Sports.

Arsenal is still facing backlash and protests from their fans because of their involvement in the European Super League.

The last thing they would want is to get more stick from their supporters because they cannot keep a good prospect.

They have convinced Folarin Balogun to finally sign a new contract with them and they will be confident that they can get Taylor-Hart on a new deal as well.

Arteta has shown that he can trust youth team players that have shown enough promise and that will hopefully convince him to stay.

    very interesting prospect…pacey, two-footed and versatile…watched him play in the Youth Cup versus Pool and he was the most dangerous player in an Arsenal kit that evening…that said, it was a very lacklustre performance…I tuned in primarily to watch Azeez, who was decent on the night and scored a late and decisive goal from the spot, but the only truly impressive player was Taylor-Hart…of course, I should have known only couple days later there would be considerable talk about how we may have mismanaged another contractual situation…hope I’m wrong, but with the way this club conducts business I’m no longer surprised by anything

    Unnecessary negative article when you consider the same scenario surrounded Saka and Ballogun

  3. PJ-SA says:

    I’m more worried about losing Azeez.

    Guy is ready to get his shot, it’s not like he could have been any worse that what we had playing.

    There are a number of players like Taylor-Hart, Azeez, McGuinnes, Lopez, Medley, Willock, AMN and Nelson, as well as Saka and ESR, who if developed by Arsenal can either contribute to the first team squad or sold to finance specific positional upgrades. Development of these players will allow the available transfer budget to go further.

    1. DaJuhi says:

      McGuinness has been one of the best CB’s in League One this season. I think he could be even in contention as our squad player next season..

      Nelson needs a loan.. he really needs game time.

      I would loan Willock to Newcastle for another, full season. With a loan fee of course. Promote Azeez to the first team and tie him down. AMN might be surplus to requirements and could be sold to raise funds.. According to rumors theres a lot of interest in him so I wouldn’t rule out a +ยฃ20m bid.

      Taylor-Hart needs to be tied down as well.. he’s too good for U18 and already more than capable for PL2. I think he could be used next season in the mens team.

      Lopez and Medley I’m not so sure about so I won’t say anything about them.

      1. Sue says:

        McGuinness’ stint at Ipswich was impressive ๐Ÿ‘ Looking forward to seeing him in the first team

    2. siamois says:

      I agree some should be sold like ANM Nelson but most of them should be sent to loan to experience man football and improve/gain experience even if we end up selling them within 2 years we’ll definitely get more buyers/better fees or could rnded being good enough for our 1st team look at Chelsea the money thy made from players they sent out on loans AC Milan want to make Chelsea loanee forgot his name is s young CBsnd will cost them 27M because ofthe option to buy in the contract we shouldn’t be too quick to sell our young prospects tie them to 4/5 years contracts before loaning them we should learn from past mistakes we missed on millions just in the last few years.

    Taylor-Hart is quality, seen him close up for years. The manager should bring him through to the first team as he worthy. It is clear homegrowns are seen as second class. Just listen to the way Lundberg speaks of Saka. Ability and readiness should come before reputation. We need a new George Graham to kick start our resurgence based on homegrowns. Not the ill-judged buys and current average guys. E.g. Chambers, Willian, Bellerin, Xhaka. Not sure MA and his coaches can see and integrate talent. Just look at Nelsons development this season and AMN moved to get gametime. People forget how mentally strong he is and what his assets are. Willian has proved that reputation means nothing, ask Ozil. Chambers nor Bellerin can defend and why is a clearly unfit Tierney on the bench and used ahead of Cedric?

      I think Cederic was ill that night.

      1. siamois says:

        No he wasn’t i read hid tweet #fullyfit #100%motivated#readyto fight…foes that sound like someone sick??

        1. Sue says:

          Wasn’t he hospitalised recently??

          Oh no, not another tweet stating ‘I’m fully fit’….We all know where this is heading ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

          1. siamois says:

            Sue this was exactly that!

          2. durand says:

            Apparently Arteta already saw the tweet from Cedric, so that would explain his absence. So Cedric is pretty much done for the rest of the year.

  6. siamois says:

    People need to stop pushing the narrative that MA can trust youth because that is not the case in that sense he is like Pep who didn’t make it easy for Foden who wasn’t playing at the start of the season he had to make it impossible for Pep not to play him just at the City team compared to UTD Solkjaer do trust youth.

  7. siamois says:

    Is Taylor-Hart the one who was sent back from his loan at Cardiff whete he barely played because of constant injuries??

    1. Sue says:

      That was Osei-Tutu

  8. Damilola says:

    Arsenal need increased athletism in the defence and deep midfield….

    That’s why Willock, Niles, Guendozi and Torreira should not be sold but all made to play around Partey…..

    Also Mavropanos, Medley, Saliba, McGuiness, Jordi Osei-Tutu and Ben Sheaf should be given chance to compete with Luiz, Holding, Mari and Mangalese….

    Kolasinac, Chambers, Cedric, Cebalos and Xhaka should be overhauled.

    Arteta should be playing 4-1-2-3 with Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Willian, Saka, Torreira, Nelson, Guendozi and Willock all favored to be rotating the 2 pressing midfield spots. While Partey, Saliba, Mavropanos, Medley, Ben Sheaf can be filling the holding mid field role

  9. yoyo says:

    I would prefer Cedric at right wing/back and chamber/ holding central..Cedric has the best rightside cross in the team imo…
