Atletico Madrid to battle Arsenal for promoted youngster

Arsenal will have to see off competition from Spanish champions, Atletico Madrid in their bid to sign Max Aarons this summer.

The Gunners have been long-term admirers of the Englishman who has won promotion to the Premier League twice in the last three seasons with Norwich.

They were relegated at the end of the 2019/2020 season, but they are determined to stay up this time.

If they had planned to achieve that with Aarons in their squad, they may have to start a new plan without him.

This is because Sun Sports reports that he has interest from Arsenal and he wants to join a top club.

The Canaries would ideally want to keep him, but the report says he has interest from around Europe with Bayern Munich also quoted as one of his suitors.

Arsenal could lose Hector Bellerin this summer and they plan to replace the Spaniard.

Aarons is one of the few right-backs who would fit in perfectly in that role for Arsenal.

Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares are two other players who Arsenal can field as a right-back, but it seems they would prefer to move for a new player.

    the European GIANTS cant afford to take a pee. we should be ok on that one , if he is the one out of 10 ish linked.
    Me , i would not mind if it happened having seen enough of him over the last few years to know he does not care about reputations.dont want locatelli by the way , he clearly hold us in disdain , trouble for sure

    1. Dacoster says:

      Even me I don’t want locatelli,the player himself prefer a move to Juventus,and arsenal are signing those players that really want to play for the team.

      1. Johnze says:

        Hopefully that is the case now (signing players who want to play for arsenal). Because did Willian wanted to play for arsenal ? Lol. He wanted to stay in London on a big contract. And preferred Chelsea. And that is sad but the same can probably be said of auba. He signed because Barca did not show up (nobody showed up with covid) and we gave a lengthy big contract.

    One of the reasons Atleti apparently want to let Trippier go is that since Brexit English players obviously count towards their non-EU-player quota, so why would they replace him with another? Not saying its impossible, but it doesn’t seem to make much sense.

    1. Nigel Jones says:

      Leave locatteli where he Is, he doesn’t want to join arsenal ,he might come and be miserable and have a negative impact on our players

      From what I read AM are not actively looking to sell Trippier who would like a move to MU but so far no bid but if a deal happens they have 2 targets to replace him but Aaron’s is not one of them and you’re right it is 3 non EU players max.

  3. Faith Thompson says:

    Get the deal done ASAP
    Sell Cedric or Chambers and Aubameyang or Lacazette
    Sign Maddison, Calvert Lewin and Bissouma, then we are good to go to compete not just for top 4 finish but for the league title.

    1. CorporateMan says:

      Too many changes for one season, imo.
      Sell Cedric, yes. Laca maybe because of his contract situation

      1. Johnze says:

        Yes because laca likes the club , try hard. Only problem is that we probably can’t afford all this money, especially up front… Auba, Willian laca. This is 620k/week. These 3 represent 30% of all the wages. But laca does not deserve to be offloaded. Unfortunately, given his contract situation, he might be the one to go even if he was the best of the group last year.

    2. Johnze says:

      And a new goof GK. onana ?
