Arsenal set to miss out on two targets to London rival

It does seem that it is going to be a tough summer for Arsenal in the transfer market and we can probably thank the lack of Champions League football for that.

Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo and Everton’s Richarlison have both been linked with moves to the Emirates, especially Arthur but is now appears that Chelsea is more likely to be their respective destination.

The Sun is claiming that Richarlison prefers a move to Chelsea over Arsenal and Team Talk reckons that the Blues are set to hijack the Gunner’s move for Arthur.

Just Arsenal Says

This was always going to happen, maybe not with every one of our targets but it will be a more common occurrence that Arsenal miss out on their targets to Champions League competitors.

It will be a shame if we do not manage to land Arthur, he is quite a decent player and certainly an upgrade on some of the characters we currently field.

Richarlison not so much, he has the odd moment of brilliance but too often he breaks up his own team’s momentum with his diving and antics and there are just as many good players out there like him that do not bring so much baggage with them.

Hopefully, we do not miss out on too many of our targets but I would not hold my breath.

  3. Hay que gastar como los de mi as para poder traer jugadores buenos y de calidad por qué con pelados nunca ganarán unas y ni entrarán a la champions.bendan el equipo a una persona que si gaste plata en el equipo y por favor salgan de ese marcador derecho portugués el enano ese

  4. To hell with both we are not interested in any of them it’s just news paper Sellers who are trying to do business.

  5. Even when we had champions league football, which top stars are we attracting anyway.. Let’s face it we are broke or perhaps not a big spender and it’s why big starts have not been coming. So you writers should stop making petty issues out of us not playing in the champions league and ignore main reason we are not signing top stars. Tell me will haaland have signed to us instead of man city if we are playing in champions league answer is hell no and many stars won’t either unless we start spending big. You can say ozil and auba came but trust me it’s because no bigger team wants dem
