Rashford to Arsenal may not happen again, Kevin Campbell relates new development

Published

on

Kevin Campbell has suggested that Marcus Rashford could shelve the plan of a move to Another and stay at Man United to rebuild his career under the management of Erik ten Hag.

The 24-year-old’s future at Old Trafford has been bleak as he has failed to impress while some pundits ask him to leave the club to rebuild his career elsewhere.

When asked by Football Insider if the forward needed a move to re-ignite his faltering career, Campbell said:

“A move might be best for him but a new manager coming in could have a similar impact. That is a challenge in itself. That always gets the juices flowing.

“You don’t know what to expect. Ten Hag might come in and absolutely love Rashford. He might be given a major role in the team and start flying again. You just never know.

“It has been a disappointing season for Marcus Rashford though. You cannot shy away from that.”

With just one year left to the end of his current contract, this is no doubt a decisive time for the England international.

Arsenal are also reported to have set aside £45 million for the signature of the striker ahead of the summer transfer window

Campbell hints at the clever move by Arsenal to sanp up Youri Tielemans

Published

Kevin Campbell says Arsenal “are playing a clever game” with Leicester City to be able to sign Youri Tielemans this summer transfer window.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker said the Foxes will be forced into selling the 25-year-old because of his contract situation.

This is as Tielemans is entering the final 12 months of his deal at the King Power Stadium.

When asked by Football Insider if time was running out for the London club to sign Tielemans, Campbell said: “No, I don’t think so.

“Arsenal are playing a clever game. Leicester are the ones who have a problem.

“We are talking about a player who is in the final year of his contract. Leicester can play hard ball as much as they want but they either take the money now or they lose him on a free next year. I would take the money.

“Tielemans has seen [Kasper] Schmeichel leave. He has seen bids come in for [James] Maddison as well. Most of the spine and the quality wants to leave. I think Leicester have got problems.

“Tielemans has one year left on his contract and they haven’t brought anyone in. I think Leicester are playing a very dangerous game.”

Alan Hutton gives transfer reasons for why Arsenal dressing room will welcome Saka’s big pay deal

Published

on

Alan Hutton has claimed the Arsenal dressing room will welcome Bukayo Saka being offered a bumper new contract because they will always have him around.

The Gunners are keen to hand the England international a better deal so as to keep him off from EPL suitors, including Man City and Liverpool.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Premier League defender said other players’ high wages never bothered him or any of his teammates.

When asked if Saka being offered higher wages could upset the dressing room, Hutton told Football Insider: “I can only go off my experiences and it was nothing that ever bothered me or anybody round about me.

“Don’t get me wrong if it was somebody who wasn’t playing, who was sitting in the stands and threw his toys out the pram then of course you’re going to be annoyed with it.

“Saka is someone who loves playing football, always plays with a smile on his face, always gives 110 per cent. He’s scoring goals, he’s assisting, he’s playing at a high level so why would you begrudge somebody that if they deserve it. Ultimately they’re making you and your team better so you have no reason to complain.“

Four names mentioned as next players to leave Arsenal

Kevin Campbell says the likes of Pablo Mari and Hector Bellerin will follow Bernd Leno out the door on a permanent deal.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker added that Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles would leave the club on loan as well.

This is after the North London outfit confirmed the exit of Bernd Leno to Fulham as Mikel Arteta already hinted that more players could leave.

When asked by Football Insider who else would likely leave the club before the transfer window shuts, Campbell said: “I expect Mari and Bellerin to leave as well.

“Bellerin has been a good servant but there is no point keeping him when his time is up.

“[William] Saliba wants his number two shirt as well. It is one of those things. It has to happen.

“Maitland-Niles is one I’m not sure on. It might be a loan move for him. Reiss Nelson might also have to leave on loan. He has looked alright in pre-season but the standards and levels at Arsenal are going up.

“You cannot carry dead wood. Some of these guys might be used as squad players and may well be the Hale End boys.”

Arsenal promising star makes stunning claim on Spanish club move

Published

on

Marcelo Flores has left Arsenal to the surprise of the fans on loan to Real Oviedo in this summer transfer window.

The highly rated star, who is only 18 was expected to continue learning the ropes back in London but that has changed he is now set to play senior team football in Spain in this campaign.

He had several offers from clubs across Europe he chose Oviedo and his agent has now opened up on the decision-making.

Speaking about his client’s move, Guillermo Zamarripa said they wanted him to leave all the noise about him behind and join a club where he would play his game and develop himself under the radar.

“The idea was to quiet the noise around him a little bit; and finding a team, with that noise, would have been a mistake. We focused on understanding what the best step was, because today the economic part is not important,” Zamarripa told Medio Tiempo.

“Good offers arrived and we prioritised the environment and all the context, the city and the minutes they could give him. Also the issue of being a community member, because due to Brexit – the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union – he loses that right and that is why the Spanish market was tempting. Oviedo gave us all those variables and it was the best step for his career.”

Reporter drops major Arsenal transfer news the fans can’t wait to hear

Published

on

TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has dropped a major news that Arsenal are still looking to sign a new winger this summer after missing out on Raphinha.

Raphinha was a target for the Gunners but Edu explained that there was already a decision for the player to leave Leesa for Barcelona before he made the approach.

However, the journalist has also told GIVEMESPORT cast doubts that any potential arrival will arrive without the exit of Nicolas Pepe.

The Ivory Coast winger is a disappointing signing for the Gunners after his £72 million move from Lille as he failed to impress and he has been listed amongst the players that could leave the club even if the North London outfit will suffer some loss.

Although the player has unwittingly pleaded for another opportunity but he seems not to have won the heart of the manager yet.

However, Arsenal are tipped to bring in a winger despite plans to bring in a midfielder as well.

Speaking to GMS, the talkSPORT reporter said: “To be honest, I think they are looking to bring in a wide player, but it might depend on whether or not they can get Nicolas Pepe off the wage bill. Clearly nobody’s going to pay the £72m that Arsenal did.”

See details as Edu turns attention to 43-goal ‘sensation’ for Arsenal

Published

Arsenal technical director Edu is understood to be considering PSV Eindhoven winger Cody Gakpo this summer as well as other targets.

This was disclosed by Ryan Taylor of the Daily Express following Edu’s earlier claim that he will still do some business before the end of this summer m

The Gunners have made five new signings so far this summer with over £100 million splashed on the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.

Mikel Arteta has overseen a productive transfer window so far but more names could still arrive.

Another prominent name linked with a move to north London is PSV ace Gakpo. Fabrizio Romano has previously stated that it would cost Arsenal between £33.5 million and £38 million to tempt the Dutch giants into a sale.

Taylor understands the 23-year-old remains on Arsenal’s radar but that there is yet to be a firm approach made for his services either after they missed out on Raphinha.

Taylor told GIVEMESPORT: “It’s difficult because not much has really changed in the past few weeks. I know fans are itching to hear names, but there isn’t really any out there that you can categorically say: ‘he is a target for Arsenal.’ I think it’s a case of looking at several options, Gakpo being one.”

Gary Neville tells Arteta to have a change of plans and do this transfer deal

Published

on

Gary Neville has urged Arsenal and Mikel Arteta not to consider signing a midfielder alone but he should make a move to sign a new full-back after watching Ben White struggle in that position last night.

Arsenal started this season with a 2-0 win against Crystal Palace last night as the Spanish boss fielded three of his best centre-backs in the match, with Ben White playing as a right back.

William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes had taken up the two centre-back spots on the team.

White struggled in that position for most of the game as Wilfried Zaha gave him a difficult time.

But Arteta had stated that he will still do some business in this summer transfer window, making emphasis on the midfield m

‘We are going to try and bring in more players.

‘There are a few things that we have tried but for now its time to work with the players we have.’

However, former Manchester United man, Neville believes they need to also bolster their defence.

He said: ‘I was more impressed in the second half. I expected their forwards to be brilliant but the question mark was over their robustness and resilience to handle the touch 20 minutes in away matches. That was where they really impressed me. They stood up tonight.

‘My only concern with the fullbacks. It is difficult for Ben White switching to that position. You need to take 10 games or so to get used to it

‘They could strengthen in central midfield. If Partey or Xhaka went down they might look a bit light. If they could get a really top midfielder, I just feel Xhaka is always going to let you down, he got booked today.’

Neil Warnock names one signing no one will ever forget for this emphatic deed

Published

on

Neil Warnock has suggested that Aaron Ramsdale is one signing at Arsenal that no one will forget in a hurry because he proved a lot of people wrong.

Warnock is not left out of this as he had thought that Aaron Ramsdale would be a disaster at Arsenal when the Gunners signed him last year, but the goalkeeper changed the thought with his impressive performance on the pitch.

Arsenal were the highest spenders in the Premier League last summer transfer window as they brought in a couple of players including Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United for £24 million.

Neil Warnock thought Ramsdale would be a disaster at Arsenal especially as he had relegated with Sheffield and in each of his previous two seasons in the Premier League.

However, he has changed his mind now and has claimed that he would pick him in his England side for the World Cup in Qatar this year.

Warnock told SportsBible while picking his England squad: “To be fair to him (Ramsdale), everybody thought it’d be a disaster when he left Sheffield United but he’s done excellent at Arsenal.

“He’d be in my squad.”

Ramsdale did not only impressed, he was able to keep Bernd Leno out of the team and eventually out of the club.
