Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move to sign former captain Mikel Arteta as our new manager this summer, and Pep Guardiola has just added to the speculation by confirming that he will allow his exit.
Do Alexis and Ozil work better with ruthless managers? By Goonerboy
It is becoming more and more likely that Arsenal will lose both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, of which some Gooners are already resigned to, and personally I can’t wait to see them leave, as I only want players that are committed and loyal to the cause…
Alexis Sanchez has been strongly linked with the exit door all summer long, and the Arsenal midfielder looks increasingly likely to stay put.
The attacker is in line to return to the first-team following an injury on Sunday, before swiftly jetting off to South America to take part in some World Cup qualifiers, and any potential movers for him may be hampered by his duty to his country.
Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has been quoted in the press with nothing but positive words for Manchester City, their manager Pep Guardiola and assistant coach Mikel Arteta, which I watched on the best ace stream around, where I watch all my matches and interviews.
Manchester City will be keen to leapfrog Arsenal in the Premier League table this weekend with a win over their rivals, but will have to do so without some key men.
The Citizens come into the match with as many as five key players missing out due to injury and suspension.
Arsenal still have more more games to play before we reach the halfway stage of the EPL season, so there is a lot of water to go under the bridge and a lot of footballing twists and turns to come before someone gets to lift the big trophy in May, but our attempt to be that club is looking a lot better after the reigning champions Leicester City rose from their slumber to inflict a painful defeat on Man City yesterday.
Just because this latest titbit of Arsenal transfer news, or gossip if you think that the word news is a bit strong, was denied by the manager of Manchester City at the weekend, does not mean that it is not true. It would not be the first time that a football manager has been less than 100percent honest when it comes to his club’s dealings in the transfer market would it?
If these latest Arsenal transfer rumours are right, then the Gunners are one of a number of teams that are interested in the transfer of the out of favour Man City star Yaya Toure, who seems to have been completely frozen out by their new manager Pep Guardiola.
