Two Arsenal stars tipped to still move to Saudi Arabia

Arsenal, having made both incoming and outgoing transfers during the recent transfer window, still have some players who could potentially leave the club. According to a report from Talk Sport, Saudi clubs are still in the market for talent from top European clubs, and Arsenal may see some departures to the Middle East.

One player who is mentioned as a potential departure is Gabriel Magalhaes. The Brazilian defender, who was a regular starter for Arsenal since joining the club, has lost his place in the starting lineup this season. It is suggested that he might be tempted by the financial incentives offered by clubs in the Middle East.

Another player who could make a move before the transfer window in the Saudi Pro League closes on September 7th is Nicolas Pepe. The Ivorian winger has reportedly been told to leave Arsenal and was unable to secure a transfer before the deadline day in other European leagues. As a result, there is speculation that he may consider a move to the Saudi Pro League.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Pepe is a player we need to get rid of because we simply do not need him at the moment. The Ivorian has done badly since he joined us and does not seem like he will ever get better.

  1. Gabriel is under contract and has no more chance to go to that Neandethal country than I have. And I would DEFINITELY NOT ever go to Dinosaur land.

  2. In Gabriel Magalhaes case most often than not such rumors are attempt to unsettle the player.

    The gaffer leaving the Brazilian out of the starting line up won’t help.

    1. I think he can offer more in that 8 position than havertz who everything has been done to fit him in to the team

  3. Pepe scored 10 goals for Arsenal, despite playing fewer minutes than Bukayo Saka as the two divided the right wing position. The following season his reward for outperforming Saka was banishment from the team and people calling him a flop.

    For a very weak Nice side, he scored 7 goals last season on loan, but Nice could never afford him. Meanwhile, Arsenal paid 65 million for Havertz, who has never scored more than 8 goals for Chelsea, despite playing 1,800 minutes. Havertz best years were in Germany, when he scored 12 goals and 17 goals. Pepe, by comparison, scored 22 goals when playing for Marco Bielsa at Lille.

    It would be disingenuous to represent Pepe’s time at Arsenal as meeting expectations, but like so many players, the change in manager destroyed any hope he had of succeeding. Unai Emery brought him in, got sacked, and then Arteta made the decision to go with Saka and it worked out, but having the young Englishman play 3,000 minutes a year is not sustainable. Havertz has never done as much with the time he got as Pepe and despite that, Arsenal paid 65 million for him.

    For whatever reason, which has never been shared by Arteta, Arsenal don’t want Pepe, and that happens, but it is somewhere between misleading and willfully untruthful to claim Pepe performed badly.

    1. I agree Pepe was an excellent player and a good backup for Saka.If you ask Saka he would probably agree.In terms of speed,stamina and skill Pepe has it!!!
