Arsenal fans would have had reasons to lament after the North London derby against Tottenham but they were saved by the Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
It is reported after Lucas Torriera was handed a red card in the game, he had waited at the tunnel to speak with the referee Anthony Taylor but he was warned by Mauricio Pochettino who told him of the consequence it would have had on his team.
Lucas Torreira was shown the red card after a tackle with Tottenham defender Danny Rose at the dire minutes of the game which ended in a 1-1 draw.
Suggestions are that Lucas Torreira would have gone against the rules by in an attempt to speak with the official and would have been handed a ban that would have cost his team some games knowing his importance in the team.
It is also reported that Mauricio Pochettino had sympathized with Lucas Torreira by noting that his tackle on Danny Rose was not intentional as he encouraged the Uruguay midfielder.
However, Lucas Torreira will be a big miss for Arsenal as they welcome Man United at the weekend to the Emirates Stadium. A win for the North London outfit will have them move to the top four spots.
How PSG are plotting United “coup” with David De Gea
It is no longer news that French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are keen on the signature of Spanish international and Man United stopper David De Gea ahead of the coming season.
David De Gea has since been linked to a number of clubs especially after he declared his intention to leave the club and refused to sign a new contract.
The Spanish goalkeeper is known to be a very important player in the Man United team but he is reported to be annoyed at the club since the reign of former manager Jose Mourinho and he is yet to recover from it.
In a bid to keep him at the club, the Red Devils have triggered a clause in the contract of the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper which permits them to extend his contract by another 12 months with the hope that he would be convinced to have a change of heart but that is yet to happen.
However, the recent report hints that PSG have asked David De Gea to run down his contract so that he would be able to leave it when it expires for a mega-deal.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid and PSG are also keen on David De Gea’ signature.
Free Aaron Ramsey flies to Juventus but is yet to join them
The Wales international is now a free player away from the North London outfit Arsenal after failing to agree on a new deal with the club.
He is reported to have agreed on a new deal with the Italian Serie A outfit Juventus on a four-year-deal which means he would be joining them in the course of the summer transfer window.
It is noted that the former Cardiff City midfielder spent over a decade at the Emirates Stadium which leaves him as one of the oldest players in the just concluded season and would definitely be missed.
However, it has been reported that the Wales international has made a trip to Italy to visit his new club but he is yet to resume because he would be a part of the Arsenal team that will partake in the Europa League finals against Chelsea but on the sideline due to his injury.
Meanwhile, the Arsenal team are already seeking a replacement for the Wales international midfielder with a number of names already mentioned for his signature.
Aaron Ramsey was one of Arsenal’s finest midfielders as he helped the club with two FA Cups in his over 350 appearances in the North London.
23-year-old defensive beast is still the answer?
It has been suggested that the interest by the north London outfit Arsenal in the signature of Spanish La Liga outfit Espanyol defender Mario Hermoso during the summer transfer window should be taken seriously.
The Gunners team conceded well over 50 goals in the course of the just concluded season which raises concerns over their ability to hold on to win a title.
This has been identified by manager Unai Emery which is why he is making an attempt to secure the signature of the La Liga star but he has been advised to move in for the deal knowing that he would not be able to challenge for titles without new and quality defenders.
Laurent Koscielny, who suffered a major injury, could not manage to hold on the defence when he eventually joined up while Sokratis Papa has not been convincing to pundits despite giving a good level of performance and it is disturbing that they are in their 30s with age not on their side.
However, Mario Hermoso is only 23 and has gathered a lot of experience as a young player to posses the quality to play at a top level for Arsenal. He has been impressive and has given good displays for Espanyol in the course of last season.
Hope alive as Arsenal could still sign this Ajax star
The North London outfit Arsenal have been tipped to still land Ajax star Hakim Ziyech this summer window as reports claim that they are still in the pole position to achieve that.
Hakim Ziyech has got whole numbers of suitors as Man United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich all seek to land him as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.
It has been suggested that Hakim Ziyech would be an ideal signing for the North London outfit and Unai Emery owing to his style and quality which would be needed at the Emirates Stadium and it is reported that he could be well available for a fee of about £25 million which would be affordable.
The Morocco international was a major part of the Ajax team that eliminated Juventus and Real Madrid out of the UEFA Champions League this season which is the reason why he has got so many suitors.
However, the North London outfit will seek to land Hakim Ziyech as Unai Emery will hope to have a more robust squad ahead of the coming season so as to be able to challenge for titles and hopefully secure qualification to the Champions League with a top-four finish.
Arsenal, United handed major blow in chase of PSG star
The English Premier League duo of Arsenal and Man United have been handed a heavy blow in their chase of French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint-German defender Thomas Meunier as the summer transfer window is almost opened.
Thomas Meunier has been impressive for the Ligue 1 outfit but he has just a year left to the end of the season which signals his end as there are fears of losing him for free.
It is claimed that the North London outfit Arsenal are keen on his signature while Man United are also on the standby seeking to snatch him up but the interest from the West London outfit has not been taken seriously.
However, all of the suitors have been dealt a major blow with Thomas Munier insisting that he would not be leaving PSG anytime soon.
He noted that there have been lots of speculations regarding his future but they are all far from the truth because he would not be leaving the French Ligue 1 outfit anytime soon.
This, therefore, leaves the North London outfit and the Red Devils with no other reason other than to look out for more options as they both seek to land a new and quality defender.
Winter window target says he is now ready for move
The North London outfit Arsenal were interested in the signature of Yannick Carrasco in the last January winter transfer window but a deal failed to fall through for reasons that cannot be explained.
Yannick Carrasco left the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid to join Chinese Super League Dalian Yifang but he seems to be tired of the Asian country and seeks a return to Europe with the Gunners as major sultriest.
Admitting that there were interest from the English Premier League clubs for his signature in the last winter transfer window, Yannick Carrasco has now confessed that he would jump at any opportunity to switch to England in the summer transfer window.
He hints that he would have to speak to the club president to be able to push for the move away from the club but stressed that as a professional who is still under a contract with the Chinese side, he would be left with no option than to remain at the club if the request is not granted.
Howbeit, it is unsure if the gunners’ boss Unai Emery will still move in for Yannick Carrasco as he has already hinted that he would continue with the partnership of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal to swoop for 18-year-old sensation to solve defensive crisis
It would not be out of place to claim that the North London outfit Arsenal are dipped in a defensive crisis especially after they conceded over 50 goals in the close of the just concluded season.
This, therefore, calls for attention as the summer transfer window is close to being opened with manager Unai Emery seeking to land French Ligue 1 outfit Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba to solve the entire crisis in the coming season.
William Saliba is only 18 but he has proven to have big qualities to be able to manage the Arsenal defence in the coming season. As a result of his big show in the French Ligue 1, he has been tipped to be the next Raphael Varane.
The 18-year-old only had his breakthrough to the first team this season with just 16 league appearances to his name but that has been enough to convince most top European sides of his ability on the pitch.
Goal.com, therefore, reports that the Gunners boss Unai Emery has identified William Saliba as one of the players that would be coming in to take charge of the defence in the coming season.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have learned that they will have to face competition from Man United for the signature of William Saliba.
How Guendouzi could help Arsenal meet transfer target
The North London outfit Arsenal have got a target for the summer transfer window to secure quality additions that would be able to add value to the team and also cost less.
However, French Ligue 2 outfit Lorient star Alexis Claude-Maurice has been identified by the Gunners boss Unai Emery to fall within the scope of what is needed at the Emirates Stadium.
It has therefore been suggested that the wish by the Gunners team to land Alexis Claude-Maurice could happen with the influence of Matteo Guendouzi who also left the club about a year ago.
With Danny Welbeck set to leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season, the Gunners boss have identified Alexis Claude-Maurice as a better replacement for him and what is most important is the fact that he would cost just £9 million.
The Gunners are obviously not financially capable of competing for big players which is the reason why they are keen on Alexis Claude-Maurice as Unai Emery has already been told that he will only have a budget of £40 million to compete in the summer window.
Matteo Guendouzi is known to be a good friend to Alexis Claude-Maurice and it is suggested that both have been talking about the club which could convince the attacking player to give his nod for a move.
Boca Juniors reacts to interest from Arsenal midfielder
South American outfit Boca Juniors have reacted to claims credited to the English Premier League outfit Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira insisting that he would play at the club in the future.
It would be recalled that Lucas Torreira recently stated that he would like to return back to play for the South American outfit as he claims that he has his heart at the club right from when he was young.
He stressed that he has got friends there and has sometimes gone to watch their games which speaks of his relationship with them.
However, Boca Juniors in their reaction appreciated the Arsenal man for indicating interest in playing for the club but they noted that they will have no words on that at the moment because he is still an Arsenal player.
The South American club, therefore, stated that they will wait for the right time to do the needful for the star player.
Meanwhile, the former Sampdoria star only joined the North London outfit in the last summer transfer window and he has already settled down to become one of the club’s favourites amongst the fans as he is tipped to have a great Future with Unai Emery.
Arsenal seal two-year deal with Dutch midfielder
The English Premier League outfit Arsenal have been confirmed to have completed the signature of Dutch midfielder Jill Roord on a two-year deal for the Gunners ladies.
It has been observed that just like every other deal for the women football, the pursuit of Jill Roord was not handled publicly as it is almost a surprise deal to Arsenal fans.
It has therefore been confirmed that Jill Roord will be with the North London outfit until 2021 as agreed in the contract terms.
Jill Roord is only 22 but she delivered a total of 14 goals for the German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich ladies.
However, she has come out to claim that she is proud to sign for the Gunners team, stressing that Arsenal is an amazing club and are also champions this season.
Jill Roord, therefore, stated that she is a technical player who can be very offensive and defensive in approach but stressed that she would like to develop herself to get better as a player.
Meanwhile, the male Gunners team are yet to make any official announcement on a new signing as it has been confirmed that they will be active in the coming summer transfer window.
