Arsenal tipped to turn their attentions to Crystal Palace star

Arsenal have been linked with a number of wingers so far this summer, and Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise is the latest named to be tipped as a possible addition.

The Gunners opened their Premier League campaign with a 2-0 win over Patrick Vieira’s side, and we could well be set to go back to Selhurst Park with an offer for one of their players.

AllNigeriaSoccer acknowledges that we have shown an interest in the former Reading star, and believes we could be set to turn our attentions to him as a deal for Moussa Diaby continues to seem difficult.

We have already added five signings this summer, two of which started at the weekend, and are believed to be working on one or two more before the transfer window closes, and a forward or CM appears to be the priority.

Olise would fit our current transfer policy perfectly, and has the kind of quality which could be a huge boost to our first-team. The 20 year-old has all the qualities to break into our first-team, while his versatility to play in different roles in our side can’t hurt either.

I would love to see him join, but it could prove difficult to persuade him to leave given he is guaranteed much more regular football should he stay put, and we may be better off allowing him to stay with the Eagles for another season before considering his signature.

  1. Seems the only thing the media know is that we are interested in a winger type forward. Gakpo (United bound now apparently), Pino (personal fav), Diaby, Neto and now Olise recently have been linked and I’m sure i’ve missed some. Obviously we had interest in Raphina earlier too so we all knew that we were looking at that position. Just have to wait and see, got to assume we must be pretty confident about finding a suitor for Pepe if we really are exploring these options though.

  2. I like Gakpo but again like someone said above maybe he’s the next Babel. Yeremy Pino and Olise interest me massively tbh to quality players there. We all know the Raphina saga was over cooked by the media. It turns out we didn’t even submit a bid, after discussions with Deco and his desire to join Barca.

    One thing has to happen first is Torriera, Bellerin, Mari and maybe Pepe moves have to be completed before new transfers come in. Now Flo Balogun and Taveres have secured their loan deals and Leno have been sorted half the job is done. Once their gone 2 new players will come in, if you believe the media we seem to prioritising a winger.

    Maybe thats because we have in fact agreed personal terms with him alla Barca-Raphinia. All we have to do is put a bit in but want to leave it to the last day to get a better price for him. It’s strange why nobody else has bid for him up to now as he is a quality player being in his last year of his contract.

    Time will tell

  3. The Central and defensive midfield role should be a priority.

    I also believe that Pepe and Reis Nelson can play on the right. I would rather we add Tielemans and one of Neves/Ndidi to the squad.

    We need a strong midfield. In the case of any injury to Partey, the quality in midfield shouldn’t drop.

    Xhaka and Elneny don’t have the legs, composure, pace, discipline and close control in tight spaces.

    Central and Defensive midfield is the key.

    Partey
    Tielemans
    Neves
    Elneny
    Xhaka
    Lokonga

    Interesting to play a 433 formation like the one below

    Martinelli Jesus Saka

    Neves Partey Tielemans

    Zinchenko Gabriel Saliba White

    Ralmsdale
