Harry Maguire

Former Arsenal player Paul Merson has urged the North London side to look the direction of Leicester City for central defender Harry Maguire in this winter transfer window.

The North London side have been identified to be lacking depth in the defence with expectations that they will engage in this January transfer window to strengthen their team.

With a number of players already being linked, the Gunners have been advised to move in for Harry Maguire who has shown big quality since joining the former Premier League champions.

Paul Merson noted that Harry Maguire will not cost his former side much but he will deliver better performance than what is obtainable at the moment i the team.

He, therefore, claimed that the price of a player should not matter for Arsenal because of their dire need of defenders as he recommends Harry Maguire to fit in properly especially with his understanding of the English League.

However, Arsenal will find it difficult to convince the former Premier League champions into releasing Harry Maguire as they have got mo replacement for him at the moment.

Meanwhile, there is no doubt of Arsenal’s bid to secure more additions at the defence in coming days before the end of the transfer window.

Mesut Ozil

German international Mesut Ozil has not taken into consideration all of the controversies concerning him as far as the season is concerned as he is bent on working with the Unai Emery team and fighting for his shirt.

The start of the season was challenging to the former Real Madrid star as he was charged by the Gunners manager Unai Emery to do more for the team so as to justify his huge pay. He was later left on the bench for a couple of games which ensured he was linked away from the club.

In his response, Mesut Ozil made it clear that he would remain at the Emirates Stadium and give his best not minding what happens.

The commitment of the former World Cup winner is again showcased as he is reported to have trained with the team in Dubai over the weekend in continuation of his resolve to win the heart of the Spanish manager.

The North London outfit had gone out to Dubai on Friday for a warm-weather camp and visited the Zabeel Palace to meet Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum as they prepare for the return to a Premier League top four fight with a Monday night game against Newcastle.

frank kessie

North London outfit Arsenal have been encouraged in their pursuit of Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan star Franck Kessie as they are reported to be willing to cash in on him for other transfer deals.

AC Milan needs to make the signature of Chelsea player Tiemoue Bakayoko permanent at the San Siro as he is currently on a loan deal which is the reason why they seek to have Franck Kessie sold to any club that is ready to meet with his asking price.

The North London outfit have been linked with the star player as they hope to have him as a replacement for Wales international Aaron Ramsey who is already on his way out of the club to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season after agreeing to a four-year deal with the club.

There is, therefore, a need to have Aaron Ramsey replaced at the club and Franck Kessie has been identified as a perfect player for the replacement.

However, the North London outfit are being discouraged by the fact that AC Milan are asking for a $40 million fee for the star player which seems too big for the Gunners to pay.

Nacho Monreal

Emerging reports have confirmed that Spanish left fullback Nacho Monreal would be leaving the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season for Spain.

It is claimed that he is interesting LA Liga giants Barcelona but where he would be heading is still unsure as there is no doubt that he has a lot of offers in Spain.

Nacho Monreal was already being linked away from the club since the last winter transfer window with the suggestions that he would move on but that did not happen as no tangible offer was submitted for his signature.

However, it is claimed that the North London outfit have no intention of keeping the Spanish defender by renewing his contract which means he is only having his last days as an Arsenal player.

This, therefore, means that the North London outfit will make efforts to land a replacement for the defender as they plan to engage in the coming summer transfer window.

Nacho Monreal has not been much on ground for the Gunners this season, having missed a number of games due to the injury he sustained.

Suggestions are that he would end up at Camp Nou as Barcelona seeks to have an option in the left back position.

North London outfit Arsenal have been linked with a move for Spanish La Liga outfit Getafe defender Djene Dakonam and they are reported to be preparing a bid in order to land him as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.

Djene Dakonam has been impressive so far this season and has been sighted by the Gunners team to bring the solution to the problems in the Arsenal defence.

However, the Gunners are being challenged for his signature by other Premier League sides including Everton and Leicester City and there are fears that the North London outfit could lose out of the race for the former league champions.

The Foxes are reported to have joined the race and are keen to make a deal happen as well with claims that they are ready to meet with the £35 million asking price for his signature.

Arsenal have been limited by the funds with claims that manager Unai Emery will only be handed a £40 million fund to engage in the summer transfer window.

With the Spanish manager reported to being a big fan of Djene Dakonam, he could find a way around it to convince the club into releasing more funds so that they can challenge for a trophy next season.

However, there are suggestions that Yannick Carrasco could have the next season in Europe as long as his suitors can come forward with a huge offer that would be difficult for the Chinese side to reject.

Rio Ferdinand

Just days ago, Man United legend Ryan Giggs revealed how he hated a number of Arsenal players, including Patrick Vieira, Emmanuel Petit and others when he was in active football because of the rivalry between both teams.

The same cannot be said of Rio Ferdinand especially now that he is making a big case for Arsenal players to be part of the England national team under manager Gareth Southgate.

The England national team has been cheering up and bolstering with young players and that seems to be the secret for Gareth Southgate who has been doing good with the national team.

No wonder the English team did well at the 2018 World Cup as they were eliminated in the semi-finals to Croatia and they are already in June’s Nations League finals after topping their group.

Rio Ferdinand has hailed the England boss stating that he is now having it good with the job. He, therefore, stated that he will like to see other young players join the national team as he made mention of Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson.

Meanwhile, Reiss Nelson has impressed this season on his loan spell at the German Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim as he has scored six goals so far.

English Premiership outfit Arsenal are reported to be keen on the signature of Championship outfit Charlton starlet Joe Aribo and could sign him in the coming summer transfer window.

Despite interest from a number of clubs, the North London outfit are reported to be positive and have had on several occasions the Addicks academy product this season.

With the Gunners team looking forward to storming the summer transfer window, Joe Aribo is believed to be a major part of the Unai Emery wish list with suggestions that a bid would be submitted for his signature as soon as the season ends.

The Championship star has got a lot of qualities to succeed at the Emirates Stadium as he is well composed and tall.

Joe Aribo is a left-footed midfielder who is one of the best Charlton can boast of. This is the reason why he has caught the attention of a number of big sides but Arsenal seem to be at the forefront.

So far this season, he has made 28 appearances and has six goals for the League One promotion chasers.

However, the North London outfit will be encouraged by the fact that Joe Aribo will be out of contract at the end of the season and he could just be available for a cheap price because of his age.

Unai Emery

The North London outfit, Arsenal failed to get busy in the last winter transfer window with an excuse that the club does not believe in the transfer window while it was also stated that they have got insufficient funds to strike major deals.

However, manager Unai Emery already gave the hint that the club already have plans to sign new players in the coming summer window, ahead of the coming season.

It was also claimed that the club management have made available £40 million for the Spanish manager to spend in the summer window which is no doubt, not enough to pull all the strings that are needed.

However, it is now revealed that the former PSG boss has made up his mind to bring in three players in the summer window.

He has therefore been tipped to move in for a midfielder as it is now sure that Wales international Aaron Ramsey would be leaving to the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus at the end of the season. There is a need to have him replaced.

More so, a defender or two would be a good buy for the Spanish boss knowing that they have been unable to hold from conceding in games, even if they end up winning.
