De Gea Discourages Arsenal Target Kepa Arrizabalaga From Moving To London

Kepa Arrizabalaga

Athletic Bilbao shot-stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been superb at his club in recent times, and his impressive performances in-between the sticks has seen him emerged as a target for a handful of top European clubs including Real Madrid and Arsenal.

However, Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea wants his countryman to stay in Spain as he continues his development at Bilbao.

De Gea believes Kepa would be best served staying in the La Liga, and should ignore any move away from the country.

Arrizabalaga is rated as one of the most promising goalies in the continent and has been very much linked with Real Madrid and Arsenal in recent weeks.

And De Gea, hailing the 23-year-old as a ‘great goalkeeper’, believes he has a ‘long career ahead of him’, and that staying in Spain would be of much benefits to him.

The Manchester United star, speaking ahead of his country’s 3-3 draw with Russia on Tuesday evening, said all Spanish players who left the country are not followed as much as those that are playing in the country.

“People forget a little bit about us” De Gea, who signed from La Liga side Atletico Madrid in 2011, said.

Kepa, who made his debut for Athletic Bilbao’s first-team in 2015, is understood to be needed by premier league side Arsenal.

However, despite speculations surrounding him, the youngster, who has kept three clean sheets in 11 games so far this term, said he is ‘keeping calm’, and his only focus right now is with his national side.

Arsenal tipped to sign Scottish star player

Published

David Bates

Arsenal are tipped to sign Scottish defender David Bates from German outfits Hamburg, ahead of their Premier League rivals.

Daily Mirror reports that other Premier League clubs including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham are all seeking for his signature.

Bates, who has been in stunning form so far this season in the German Bundesliga has also reportedly admitted he would have a switch to the North London.

His presence in the team can be felt having ensured they keep a total of six clean sheets this season in eight games, one of the highest that has been kept in the German Bundesliga this current campaign.

This has caught the attention of most of the Premiere League sides knowing that they have not been able to keep as many clean sheets.

Also, the North London side have got an inconsistent defence and they look to solve that problem with the Scottish player.

Arsenal under Unai Emery have become stronger in the attack and the midfield but that cannot be said of the defence as they play most games conceding.

However, there is a need to add more strength to the defence to ensure balance of the team.

Arsenal will return from the international break to continue their unbeaten run as they are currently sitting fifth in the Premiere League so far this season.

Tanguy Ndombele

Arsenal were reported to be leading in the race for Tanguy Ndombele in this summer before they were overtaken by Manchester City who seems to have gone ahead of the Gunners team.

Reports coming from France reveal that a bid of £50 million was made by Man City for Tanguy Ndombele but it was turned down by Ligue 1 outfit Lyon.

However, the 21-year-old star was brought to the notice of the Etihad team last week when Man City played Lyon at the Etihad Stadium where the visitors took the day with a 2-1 lead.

City saw Tanguy Ndombele as being a very important part of the Lyon team and they wish to have him switch to England any time soon so as to add his quality to the team.

Meanwhile, suggestions are that Tanguy Ndombele will not be allowed to leave the Ligue 1 giants having kept hold of Nabil Fekir in the summer despite strong interest from Liverpool.

For Arsenal, they will have to push harder if they must have Tanguy Ndombele at the Emirates Stadium but notwithstanding, the player has a decision to make in this case and he could decide to make a move to the Gunners where he will be sure of a starting role.

Alex Telles

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has identifies Porto defender Alex Telles as an ideal replacement for Nacho Monreal and he is bent on making a move in the coming winter transfer window if the report from Portugal is anything to go by.

It is reported that Spanish left full-back could be on his way away out from the club and his departure might spell doom for the North London side which makes his mandatory for a replacement to be signed soon.

Alex Telles has had a good season with his impressive display. He has got similarities with Monreal at the left back and the fact that he is younger makes it a good deal for the Spanish manager.

Although, Sead Kolasinac remains an Arsenal player but with the injuries he has had, it has been established that he cannot be relied upon as there is a need for a back-up for him.

Alex Telles joined Porto from Galatasaray in 2016. He is one of the few defenders who can boast of goals in a season, not forgetting that he scored 4 goals in 37 appearances last season for his side.

However, the Brazilian has got a release clause within the region of £30 million but the North London side will have to be very convincing to be able to have him move in the January window.

It has been revealed that Arsenal star Mesut Ozil would have been playing elsewhere but he decided to remain at the Emirates Stadium by signing a new deal earlier this year.

It would be recalled that the German midfielder and Alexis Sanchez were both into contract disagreement with the club until the Chile international found his way out to Manchester United.

Just at the departure of the former Barcelona star to the Old Trafford, Ozil immediately put pen to paper and extended his stay at the Emirates Stadium which remains a surprise to many.

Ozil’s representative has now revealed that his client had good offers from Asia and other big clubs but decided to remain at the club, noting that money was not a factor for his player’s decision on where to be.

The representative stated that why Ozil remained at the club was because of the commercial impact he has got which could be distorted if he leaves the Emirates Stadium.

According to him, the former Real Madrid star is the biggest social media following player in the Premier League as well as his shirt number sales which was the largest the club as ever had.

He noted that all of these information’s are important for the player’s commercial value in terms of situations of advertisements and modelling.
