Arsenal waiting to sign Real Madrid star who has spoken to Ceballos about the Gunners

Arsenal remains keen to add Marco Asensio to their squad and they have made their intention known.

They could get the chance to sign the Spaniard soon as he continues to struggle to play for Real Madrid.

El Chiringuito via Diario Madridista claims he is considering a January move away from Madrid if things don’t change.

The report claims he has had fewer minutes than he thinks he deserves and this has opened the door for another club to sign him now.

Arsenal competes with the likes of Juventus and Liverpool to sign him, but the report says he would fit perfectly into Mikel Arteta’s squad.

The Gunners are currently without European football and a move to the Emirates would represent a drop-down in level, but it seems the attacker doesn’t mind.

The report claims that he has already spoken to Dani Ceballos to ask the former Arsenal loanee about the Gunners.

This is a clear show of interest and Arsenal could be successful in the pursuit of his signature if they reach out and convince him to join them.

Asensio knows he needs to play more often to remain relevant as well as to win back the trust of Spain’s national team coaches.

He can achieve that easily at Arsenal as Arteta has proven to be a good manager in the development of Madrid’s loanees.

  1. I love Asensio at Arsenal. having a squad debth with more creative players is key. Asensio, Odegaard and ESR. I love that.

    1. Yes Sue.

      Arteta is safe for now. We need consistency after the international break.

      If we can have 5 wins in a row, we will be within top4.

      The top teams will drop more points.

      The problem i have with Arteta is his squad management.

      Saka is being overplayed and Martinelli hardly gets a game time.

      What is wrong in staring Martinelli in some league games? I am worried about Saka going the same route as Wilshere in terms of injuries

      1. I wonder if you fans who keep on shouting for martinelli to play, cannot understand from his appearances in the team, that he still has a lot to learn. It’s not all about energy and running, he needs to be able to keep possession, bring others into play with intelligent passes and decisions, and also have good positional sense. It is already getting irritating, the way everyone shouts Martinelli, even though most times he’s played he’ s been really anonymous, at least in Arteta’s system.

        1. Couldn’t agree more. He needs to learn the tactical side of the game a bit more. He is not there just yet.

        2. What re you even saying…MA is not good enough and again he hate Saliba..Guendouzi .. martineli… and now his hatred has gotten to Lacazatte…if this martineli is in Ajax team buy now big club would have been going for him … Mikel Arteta is not good enough to bring the best out of this young players

        3. Very sensible words.Like most fans, I think Martinelli could develop into a top class forward , but when he does get an opportunity he has to turn perception into reality.In terms of sheer ball skills he is one of our top players .He is also quick and energetic but he needs to realise that he cannot influence the game every time he gets the ball in a deep position.ESR is an example to follow.He plays it simple, runs well off the ball and explodes when he approaches the final third .Martinelli needs to follow suit and learn the importance of retaining possession when nothing much is on.He will learn,of that I am sure.

        4. @ Rotimi,
          He wont learn all these while being on the bench. There was a time when Bukayo was playing under Emery, he was giving the ball away quite often.

          some fans were even saying he wasnt ready yet. we wanted him to be benched then.

          You talk about Martinelli not ready yet. Oh, he wasnt ready but scoring goals when Aubameyang and Lacazette were both injured.
          He wasnt ready when we played against Chelsea away, he picked the ball after a corner kick from Chelsea, drove thru the team with immense pace and scored one of the goals of the season.

          Is it until Saka gets a major injury, fatique or becomes another Wilshere/Diaby before we look at player rotation?

  2. English football is always difficult for young footballers to develop, thats why they tend to go to Germany and non major leagues where they tend to pad stats with goals increase their market value. Martinelli often makes me think that a 19 year old messi would not make it in the current arsenal. Emerys use of Martinelli narrates the whole story about his abilities, strength and wickness. So, do not judge him by what you see at the moment.
