Ismael Bennacer

North London outfit Arsenal are reportedly considering bringing back Ismael Bennacer to the Emirates Stadium after selling him to Italian Serie A outfit Empoli.

Ismael Bennacer was formerly a youth player at the North London outfit but he was sold out with just an appearance under former manager Arsene Wenger in a League Cup defeat at Sheffield.

The former Arsenal player seems to be in good form at the moment and has awakened the consciousness of the Arsenal team that they have not lost him forever because of the buy-back clause that was added to his deal away.

Ismael Bennacer played a major part in the promotion of Empoli from the Serie B to the Italian top flight last campaign and he has been unchanged in the Serie B as he has already had 30 appearances so far this season.

However, it is reported that the North London outfit have already learned of the interest from another Serie A side Napoli for the player which has awakened them to want to take back what belongs to them.

Ismael Bennacer has therefore won seven senior national team cap with Algeria which makes him a player that would fit into the Arsenal team because of his quality.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The race for the top-four finish in the Premier League table is currently between Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham and the Red Devils feel some of the teams have got an edge.

The Red Devils are currently a sixth place with two points behind fourth-placed Arsenal and fifth-placed Chelsea which means they will have to do more to be able to catch up.

What is more disturbing for the Red Devils is the fact that they will have to travel to the Goodison Park to face Everton before they will line up for the clash against Man City and Chelsea.

Solskjaer stated that his team are not in a better position to qualify for the Champions League next season despite having their rivals Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea still in European tournaments.

He noted that he would have loved his team to also play in the semi-finals, adding that it is the wish of every player to want to compete and win titles.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has stated that the attention of his team is to see through the next three fixtures in the Premier League because the games will define their season before they later travel to Huddersfield and then host Cardiff City to end their season.

Arsenal have been able to progress to the semi-finals of the Europa League after seeing past Italian Serie A outfit Napoli and will now face Spanish La Liga side Valencia in coming weeks.

Valencia boss Marcelino has claimed that his side are at a better advantage than the North London outfit because they will not be under pressure like the English Premier League side.

The Valencia boss noted that the Gunners team are favourites ahead of the semi-final clash and they will be under pressure to prove that when they meet.

He added that with the fight for a top-four finish in the Premier League looking tough, the Gunners team will be desperate to deliver victory and they could be hunted by that as he hopes his team are able to deliver victory in the game.

However, there is no doubt that the Gunners team are favourites for the Europa League title and winning Valencia in the semi-final will give a big hope to the Arsenal fans, knowing that manager Unai Emery has got a history with the competition- winning it three times with Sevilla.

Meanwhile, the Gunners team will have their attention on the English Premier League as well so as not to take the risk.

Aaron Ramsey

Wales international Aaron Ramsey sustained an injury in Arsenal’s Europa League clash against Italian Serie A outfit Napoli on Thursday night and the report from the boss Unai Emery seems unpleasing to the ear.

The Gunners were able to see past the Italian side with a 1-0 win at Naples, all thanks to a free-kick goal by French striker Alexandre Lacazette but they have their loss to count at the end of the game with Ramsey’s injury. He was forced out in the first half and replaced by Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Speaking after the game, Unai Emery confirmed that the Wales international suffered a muscular injury which could take weeks before total healing as he stressed that the fans may never see Aaron Ramsey in an Arsenal jersey again.

The Spanish boss made such claim knowing that Aaron Ramsey has already been announced to have agreed on a deal with Italian Serie A outfit Juventus on a four-year deal after failing to agree on a contract extension with the North London side.

There is no doubt that Aaron Ramsey would be missed as he has established himself as one of the best midfielders the Gunners team can boast of.

The summer transfer window is fast approaching and the North London outfit Arsenal boss is looking to add more strength to his team ahead of the coming season.

It has been suggested that the Spanish boss will be adding more strength to all departments including the attack and has identified Fortuna Dusseldorf forward Benito Raman as a good addition.

It has been noted that the Unai Emery team have got the third-best attack in the English Premier League with 66 goals in 33 games as they bid to secure a top-four finish but that will not stop them from doing more with additions.

The Gunners have therefore learned that Benito Raman will cost £13 million which is perceived to be affordable knowing the limited £40 million budget that is reported to be on the way of the Spanish boss.

With 10 goals so far in 27 appearances in the German Bundesliga outfit, Benito Raman has caught the attention of the former PSG boss who is seeking to bring him in to consolidate Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the attack.

However, the Spanish boss has been told that he would have an improved £70 million transfer kitty should he land a Champions League qualification.

Laurent Koscielny

All of these seem to have changed rapidly as the Gunners team have been transformed to recording six clean sheets in the last seven games across all competi0tons.

Former Man United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has attributed the resurgence to the perfect partnership between Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papa.

With this feat, the North London outfit have now stepped up in their race for a top-four finish while they have been able to see past Italian Serie A outfit Napoli for a semi-final clash against Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia in May.

The former Red Devils player noted that the Gunners have always looked different with Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papa at the defence while the mix of Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka has paid the Spanish boss.

He stressed that manager Unai Emery has to be given the credit because he has been able to set up the team correctly while noting that the team is now in their peak at the right time to help them with a Champions League qualification and the Europa League title win.

Arsenal have been able to progress to the semi-final of the Europa League after defeating Italian Serie A outfit Napoli in a 3-0 aggregate but there is a need to turn attention to the English Premier League because of the need to seal a top-four finish.

Unai Emery

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been hinted that he could have an increase in the transfer budget that was initially promised him if he is able to ensure qualification to the Champions League in the coming season.

The Gunners boss was initially told he would have £40 million to engage in the summer transfer window as the club have got limited funds.

But with the hope of qualification, there would be a need to boost the squad to be able to face the challenge ahead for European competition and the Spanish boss has been told he would now have £70 million to spend.

The North London outfit are currently in the race for a top-four finish against Man United, Chelsea and Tottenham but there are hopes that they can scale through if all remaining games until the end of the season can be won.

Arsenal are lucky to have all opponents outside of the top six teams which makes it easier.

However, there are expectations that they will be without Wales international midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the coming season because he has already agreed on a deal with Italian Serie A Champions Juventus while it is unsure if England international Danny Welbeck would be trusted to remain at the club owing to the injury he sustained.

North London outfit Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been given reasons why he must play German international Mesut Ozil in their Europa League second leg clash against Napoli later on Thursday.

The Gunners team had secured a 2-0 advantage in the first leg at the Emirates Stadium but there are suggestions that they will have a real test when they play at Naples because Napoli will be waiting to give them a real test.

Paul Merson has therefore warned manager Unai Emery that the World Cup winner must be in the team, especially ahead of Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan because he is still a match winner.

Mesut Ozil was earlier criticised for poor performance as he was also left out of the team for a couple of games but Paul Merson states that he is still a better pick than Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

He stressed that the former Real Madrid star has got the ability to u pick the Napoli defence and that is what is needed because of the need for the Gunners to score a goal in the game.

Paul Merson, therefore, tipped Arsenal to secure a win in the game, adding that they will not be good enough for the semi-finals if they can not take advantage of the 2 goals lead.
