Potential Odegaard alternative for Arsenal hands in transfer request

Joaquin Correa is claimed to have handed in a transfer request to Lazio, seemingly trying to force a summer move with Arsenal amongst the names linked.

The attacking midfielder helped Argentina to lift the Copa America title this summer, beating strong rivals Brazil in the final, and is now setting his sights on further excitement this summer.

Correa is claimed to have told Lazio that he wants to leave the club, with TuttoMercatoWeb stating that he has handed in official transfer request, but will continue to remain available to play for Maurizio Sarri in pre-season as they embark on Germany.

Arsenal have been linked with Correa this summer, with reports earlier in the window claiming that we had requested his signature amidst talks over a deal to bring Lucas Torreira in the opposite direction, but talk has gone quiet on the subject of late.

That could be set to change after the latest development however, although Martin Odegaard is believed to have been the priority after his impressive loan spell in North London earlier in 2021, The Athletic reported in May.

The Real Madrid midfielder could well become available also, with question marks on his guaranteed playing time in the Spanish capital.

Could Arsenal consider bringing in both attack-minded players?

    No thanks he is nothing special and for the money you can get better

  2. Longbenark says:

    For Correa, it’s okay , just add Bruno Guimaraes and we are good,

    Please stay away from Odegaard, he’s just over hyped at the moment.

    “Consider bringing in both attack minded players?” Funniest comment today, since Arsenal are dithering about buying one midfielder, let alone two!
    If they were smart they would approach Lyon and negotiate a package deal for Houssem Aouar and Bruno Guimaraes. Only need one visit, for “two birds with one stone. “

    Correa over Odegaard any time of the day.

    If Arsenal was a proper top four side this is the team we should have had by now. We sell the rest of Junk that we have and to be honest all the players below are gettable

    Isak/Lautaro

    Smith/Matinelli Aourer/Correa Saka/Pepe

    Yves/Lokonga Partey/Camavinga

    Tierney/Tarves Gabrial/Mari White/Saliba Aaron/Lampty

    Onana/Leno

    But we have become a poor club under Kroneke.

      Even on FIFA, you couldn’t assemble such a team. Get your head out of the clouds.

      1. Nago says:

        I bet EK could probably assemble such a team

        🤣🤣🤣😂😂

    Correa played 26 games last season, every time as a striker. Not sure where this attacking midfielder idea’s come from. Would be a better investment than Martinez imo but would still mean Laca would have to leave.

    Arsenal need 2 more signings.

    Aouar(30m pounds)
    Bernardo Silva(45m pounds)

    We need goal scoring midfielders. Creativity is key..

    I would have added Raheem Sterling to the list. But that could be difficult to pull through.
    Man City will sign Grealish. When that happens, we should go for Bernardo Silva. And then Aouar.
    We don’t need Maddisson or Lautaro. Odegaard will be expensive.

    What I have seen from our recent performance is Arteta should stop playing both Lacazette and Aubameyang together. It is either Lacazette, Aubameyang, or Balogun upfront. We need wingers and midfielders who can dribble in tight spaces.

    Aubameyang is a waste on the wings. He does not have the legs any more. He should be playing as a CF.

    Bernardo silva has premier league experience. Very mobile and scores a lot of goals. He can play on the flanks and as a number 10 .

    Aouar is a ball playing midfielder. Enormous creativity. We need that identity back. Possession based football. Intelligent midfielders who can dribble and are comfortable receiving the ball.

    A 4141 formation makes sense

    Chambers White Gabriel Tierney

    Partey

    Pepe ESR Bernardo Saka

    Aubameyang

    Sell Elneny, Kolasinac and Nketiah (with a buy back option)

    Loan out Reis Nelson and Azeez

  8. gunnerforlife says:

    The idea of both Bernardo Silva and Aouar in the team sounds exciting but realistically and financially, only one is possible.

    1. Mentali says:

      Aour is the carzolla/Ozil we’ve been
      missing for sometime now.
      Buy Aour
