Arsenal demand £50m for highly rated defender, to help fund three-man Wenger transfer spree

Published

on

Arsene Wenger’s team have endured another tough season this year, with specific players struggling to find their best shape and in turn, it has led to total disappointment in their chase of major titles.

Underperforming stars

Among that set of players has been defender Hector Bellerin, as the young defender hasn’t quite kicked on as expected after his promising introduction to the senior team.

The Spain international has played 36 matches across all competitions so far this term, but questions have been asked over his form this season especially considering he was dropped at Brighton earlier in the month.

In turn, it comes as no shock to hear of transfer rumour linking him with a departure, with The Daily Mail claiming that Arsenal are open to offloading him this summer transfer window for £50million, with Barcelona, Manchester City, and Juventus all specifically named as interested parties.

Good money

From a Gunners perspective, it’s also exciting to note that the transfer fee could go towards bringing in new players, with a goalkeeper, defender and midfielder thought to be on the wishlist at the end of the campaign, according to report.

If the Gunners were able to amass £50million for Bellerin, that’s good business. Although the player is still only 22-years-old and could still improve and develop, that’s big money for a defender which could be reinvested in the team to address problematic areas.

Though the transfer market is currently closed, clubs are being linked with some players ahead of the upcoming winter transfer window.

Here are some players making headlines in the transfer media.

Mesut Ozil and Anthony Martial could be engaged in a swap deal

Manchester United are reportedly set to offer want-away striker Anthony Martial plus cash to Arsenal so as to receive Mesut Ozil in return.

According to Daily Mirror, Mourinho is willing to reunite with the retired Germany international at Old Trafford and he’s ready to do everything to see that happen in January.

Arsenal target Brazilian Lucas Paquette despite United’s interest

Le10 Sports are reporting that United and Arsenal are set to compete for Brazilian playmaker Lucas Paquette, who has two caps for the Selecao. The youngster is valued at £44m by Flamengo but it’s yet to be seen if both clubs are ready to spend big on his signature.

West Ham target Chelsea striker

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata could be joining the Hammers in January as Manuel Pellegrini is hoping to lure the Spaniard to the Bet365 Stadium.

The former Manchester City manager hasn’t hit the ground running with the team after five round of matches this season and he’s looking to bolster his team’s attacking prowess in the second half of the season.

Ramsey’s uncertain future

Arsenal are yet to convince the Welshman to commit his future to the Emirates stadium, despite all their efforts to see that happen before the end of this month.

Though talks are still ongoing but the Express claims both parties are not having a smooth talk as many would have wanted.

The club is to be named after the road of former stadium, Highbury.

The plans will make the second phase of the redevelopment of Club Level – the club’s premium area for club supporters.

In a bid to make the fans more comfortable, the features of the new club include panoramic views of the pitch, as well as a live-action chef station and a feature cocktail bar, with work set to begin in summer 2019.

Meanwhile, the Champions Bar and The Highbury Suite, which have been in existence will see some renovations in the summer to improve the hospitality experience for fans.

Emery

After many days of waiting, new Arsenal recruit might finally be in the pole when Arsenal file out against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa game.

The goalkeeper who came in the summer with the prospect of beating the competition from Petr Cech and emerging as the first team goalkeeper but that did not happen as he did not get the nod from Spanish manager, Unai Emery in the Premier League.

Howbeit, tonight’s Europa game could be the opportunity for Arsenal fans to see their new stopper who had arrived Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

Emery has however given the player a big hint of becoming the first team goalkeeper even in the Premier League.

According to the former PSG manager, the culture of the sharing formula for goalkeepers in which one takes the league and the other takes European competition does not apply as he seeks to make do of the best.

He hints that should Leno ceases the opportunity to produce a good display, he will oust the former Chelsea keeper as his first choice.

Emery noted that his selection is strictly based on performance and nothing more.

Cech has been criticized for his several blunders in the league but that has not been enough for Emery to have a change of mind on him.
