Arsenal looking for buyers for Elneny and Welbeck?

So this it, the last day of the summer transfer window, and there should be lots of activity in the coming frantic hours. But will Arsenal be buying or just clearing out some more players ahead of the deadline. ESPN are telling us that “sources from the club” have told thm that the Gunners are going to offload Mohammed Elneny and Danny Welbeck as a priority. On Welbeck they stated…..

Striker Welbeck has a year remaining on his deal and Arsenal are open to selling him rather than risk him leaving for nothing next summer, with a number of Premier League clubs monitoring the situation.

Having already sold Lucas Perez, the departure of Welbeck will give us very few options in the striking department. If Lacazette and Aubameyang get injured we could be in trouble…

On Elneny, they said….

Elneny, who only signed a new deal in March, has slipped down the pecking order, with the arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi meaning Arsenal have a number of options in defensive midfield.

Yes we do have lots of midfielders, but I would be very surprised if we sell Elneny just after giving him a new contract, but it looks like we will find out in the next few hours….

    Sometimes i go down on my knees to pray for arsenal,I tell God to bless the future of our great club,just because I have dropped an information over here concerning dembele doesn’t mean that I would go down on my knees and forcefully tell God to bring dembele just to avoid criticism….I only want the best for arsenal, so if dembele doesn’t come to arsenal then he is not needed and I’m ready to receive insults as long as it means that God has made arsenal take the right decisions over my selfish thinking…… I’m sure some of you guys want the dembele deal to fail so I can be eaten raw…SHAME!……If dembele arrives at arsenal then all well and good but if he doesn’t then we just have to move on….I’m always here with you guys for the insults,I can’t leave here because I bleed red and white,I only drop the information I am given but I don’t handle the situations that go on………THANKS,CHIZA……..your sweet Chiza

      Come on man…what has God Got to do with this now..I guess you are a Nigerian though

      1. ozziegunner says:

        I only want the Demele loan/transfer to fail because Arsenal can get better value with the money elsewhere.

      2. Someone says:

        Ineeded lol
        I was just going to say that

    2. Pablo Picasso says:

      Give it up dude.

      Even when no one is insulting you because we all know like most of us you have no inside info but here you are talking about it.

      using the Lords name won’t make people’s opinions on you change either, Barça, Bayern, Swansea and all the other teams world over equally have prayer warriors so why not pray on something worth while than transfers, there is more to this game and life than that.

      Transfer deadline day is usually an emotional day for most fans so just mind what you post today if you really want to avoid the insults.

    3. Bobby says:

      Now you are saying is the info you were given but when you wrote here, you sounded like you were involved in the negotiations. You only needed to have use the right words which you are very aware of but instead you choose to make it sound like you knew exactly what you were saying like we just wait for official confirmation

      I like your passion and
      dramatic writing.
      You write like Kelechi on AFTV
      Keep the entertainment coming 🙂

  3. Elneny is a mistake, it never gonna possible because he is staying.
    This guy have improve a lot ,I can guarantee you it a fake news guys.
    Talking about Welbeck may he will be shown the Door but Elneny for Heaven sake it a lair, he Elneny is staying with my Darling Arsenal.

  4. Mudassir says:

    I will like both of them to leave, welbeck is useless, elneny is surplus to requirement plus i hate to see important squad numbers like that no. 4 always on the bench or not even in the squad it should be on Torreira’s back.

    1. Pablo Picasso says:

      Totally agree on the iconic jersey number 4. What where they thinking when giving it to a player who will spend most of the time on the bench. Should he be sold best of luck to him. Don’t see it happening though because most of our average players would rather stick around on high wages and run out there contracts. Even Ospina’s agent said something in those lines.

      If Welbeck is sold I hope we bring in a winger or another attacking midfielder. The season is long for us to only have a few options in attacking positions plus a different type of player from what we have would be good for more options.

      1. ozziegunner says:

        True Pablo, Arsenal wages are above market and that is why it is so hard to move players on. Unfortunately Arsenal is now less attractive because the top players want the Champions League exposure.

  5. Gifted says:

    Hahaha, Chiza….You never cease to amaze me…Leave God out of our transfers please because as it stands, your prayers regarding Dembele just hit the roof and bounced back

  6. Phelyx says:

    Elneny should stay. He is a good squad player

  7. barryglik says:

    Elneny is a good squad player.
    Should play 15 cup games
    and 10-15 league games
    as a rotation/resting player.
    Only cost 7m and always gives 100%.
    Wellbeck 🙁
    So far so not good.
    16m fee,16m Wages. 32mill of “potential”.
    He owes the club 50 top games and 30 goals.
    Probably gonna stay as one of the English quota players.
    With Perez gone he is our 3rd striker and is a decent wing option/cover.
    Like Elneny should play a ton of cup games and
    sub and rotate against smaller PL teams.
    Have a feeling we will see a decent return from him.
    However if he is to be sold late I am not gonna shed any tears
    especially if his 15-20 mill fee helps fund a classy incoming
    All shall be revealed soon..I hope

    Where’s Kev, Leicester has signed Soyuncu…. We need a good CB for crying out loud.

  9. LENohappy says:

    Chiza,this is one of the reason why people insult you,attention seeker.

  10. LENOhappy says:

    Chiza the comedian

  11. LENOHAPPY says:

    Chiza,broa abeg just keep quiet,you dey embarrass we naija wey dey here

  12. McLovin says:

    Selling Elneny makes sense. Guendouzi has already made him irrelevant. Not to mention Torreira. IMO our midfield options are:

    1st choice CM: Ramsey
    1st choice DM: Torreira

    2nd choice CM: Xhaka
    2nd choice DM: Guendouzi

    3rd choice CM: AMN
    3rd choice DM: Elneny

    Welbeck will stay up. Only because we don’t have any wide players left and we can’t sell Welbeck after today as nobody outside England wants him.


    why are we not after Quincy Promes of Spartak Moscow? We are desparate for a winger right now and Promes got 64 goals and 25 assists in 127 appearances in the Russian Premier League. We got Arshavin for worse stats!

  13. Rahul says:

    Why emery did not sell elneny in first place and kept wilshere?

    For now we have 4 defensive midfielders – torreira, Guendouzi, xhaka, elneny
    and one creative – ramsey

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Rahul, Xhaka is not a DM.
