Serie A star player reveals what he did to Arsenal in the transfer window

Published

Miralem Pjanic

Juventus star Miralem Pjanic has said that he did indeed reject a move to North London outfit Arsenal.

Player name English suitors

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international midfielder answered questions from the Telegraph ahead of his team’s UEFA Champions League clash with North London side Tottenham Hotspur and he disclosed all about former offers from England.

The player said he made a choice with his head and if he made that decision not to go to a Premier League team, it was for important reasons.

The midfielder has been one of the League’s standout players over the seasons, impressing for both AS Roma and Serie A champions Juventus. This certainly attracted interest from teams in England, with the player confirming that both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspurs made transfer moves for him.

Key Serie A star

Pjanic, 27, is an important player for the Turin giants and has played a vital role in their attempt to retain the Serie A title. The midfield maestro has played 17 matches in the Serie A and has scored four goals and made seven assists from the midfield.

The Gunners have signed a number of midfielders in recent seasons, yet none of them have truly performed well.

Perhaps Arsenal’s fortunes may have changed if the Emirates club were able to sign Pjanic some time ago.

Unai Emery turns attention to another Liverpool star

Published

Unai Emery

Arsenal manager Unai Emery seems to have turned attention to Liverpool defender Alberto Moreno who will serve as a replacement for Nacho Monreal.

The Spanish manager is keen on more additions to his side and he is monitoring the situation at Liverpool knowing that Moreno’s contract is running into his last months at the Anfield and he is yet to be handed a new deal.

There are also indications that the left back has no intention to remain at the club, hence a move seems to be on the table.

Moreno has been overtaken at the position by Andy Robertson which makes him uncomfortable knowing that he is in the peak of his career and will not be favoured if he remains on the bench.

Arsenal will have to battle for his signature alongside other top European sides that are also monitoring the situation.

But the North London boss might have the advantage to have the player’s signature at the end of the season having worked with the Spanish defender at Sevilla with their relationship still intact.

However, the Gunners will have to prepare a lucrative deal for the Reds player to be able to beat off competitions from other European teams, especially in the Spanish La Liga.

Arsenal new managing director Vinai Venkatesham has hinted that his side are now ready to win trophies.

The Gunners have not been title contenders for the past years as they last won the Premier League over a decade ago. Hope was restored with the two FA Cups won by former manager Arsene Wenger in 2014.

Since then, the North London side competed without silverware and that might have seen its end following the hint by the team’s chief.

Venkatesham explained that a lot of structure has been put in place off-pitch that will ensure the fans laugh at the end of the day.

The new managing director who replaced former Arsenal chief, Ivan Gazidis in September said a target has been set for the team to win trophies, boasting that it would be actualized under the manager in no distant time.

He made it clear that a lot will be done but it has to be done in the way the club wishes by respecting the history and the values that have been obtainable over the years.

According to him, the North London side have a ‘self-sustaining business model that makes it possible to fund all the investment on the pitch with the revenues generated off the pitch.

According to the United legend, his teammates had nicknamed the Scotsman the late Libyan dictator Colonel Gaddafi because of his style at the club which was quite similar.

Cole noted that he was 16 years of age at that time and he thought he was ripe enough to make the first team with his good performance but that did not happen.

He, therefore, noted that the North London side at that time had great players like Paul Merson, Ian Wright, Alan Smith and the likes who he had to compete with for space but that did not bother him.

Graham at that time had behaved like a dictator who never wanted to be challenged or questioned and that was the sin committed by Cole which made his stay at the club uninteresting.

Andersen has been earmarked as a replacement for the Belgium international.
