Arsenal still want Real Madrid man but the competition is getting serious

Arsenal pursued an interest in Marco Asensio in the last transfer window and the Spaniard was one player several clubs wanted to add to their squad.

Mikel Arteta eventually bolstered his attack with Gabriel Jesus and the little-known Marquinhos.

Jesus has been a key member of the team and he has developed well so far.

Marquinhos has not featured many times for the Gunners, but he seems to be a real talent.

The Gunners have made a stunningly impressive start to this term and it can only get better.

They know they must improve their squad to remain one of the best clubs in England until the end of the term.

Mundo Deportivo reports an update on Asensio’s future and they insist Arsenal remains in the running to sign him on a pre-contract agreement in January.

However, the report adds that Barcelona has also joined the race for his signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Asensio is one of the finest attackers we can add to our squad and he is very experienced at winning the biggest prizes in world football.

However, we might have to keep our position at the top of the league table to convince him we can match his ambition.

  1. Have any of You guys that keep linking us with all these players ever given a thought about our no.10 the currently injured ESR and what signing any of these attacking players would do to his position in our team ?

  2. Could we at least give Vieira, ESR, Marquinhos, and Nelson (when he returns) a chance before we throw money away?

    These young players will struggle to develop if they are pushed further down the depth chart and are offered fewer chances.

    Let’s see what Marquinhos can provide as a sub, perhaps growing into a competitive role by the end of the year.

    Imagine if we have brought in 2 wingers instead of giving Martinelli and Saka their chances when they joined the 1st team.

  3. Props to this guy’s agent he’s not even lingard’s equal and he still manages to be mentioned as a favourable transfer option for big clubs

  4. I think ESR might need surgery on his groin. However, if he gets fit again, I am not sanguine about his future with the club.

    My problem with ESR is Arteta. I have said this many times.

    ESR is not, and should not be, a back up to Odegaard.

    ESR’s best position is on the left wing (playing with Kierney or Zinc as the fullback)

    Arteta won’t play him there, so he is stagnating.

    He NEEDS the operation, and then he should go to another team.

    His career is dwindling at Arsenal, and I would really like him to try to rekindle it elsewhere!!!!

  5. No serious minded Gooner believes this obvious nonsense about us “apparently” (which means we are NOT interested) being after Asensio!
    Next false rumour will be along within an hour or two, so do not panic if you like more fantasy!

  6. I guess any player that wore/wears real madrid kit is considered a great player including Henzo Zindane.

    Asensio to arsenal, no thanks……….
