Ray Parlour talks up missed Arsenal target

Published

on

Ray Parlour has a lot to say about Arsenal target Alexander Isak who has now signed a new deal at Spanish La Liga outfit Real Sociedad.

Alexander Isak, who has scored 33 goals in 89 appearances for Spanish side Sociedad, featured in all four of Sweden’s Euro 2020 matches, helping them reach the last 16 stage before losing to Ukraine.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed great form for his club and country, the reason why he has attracted interest from Premier League clubs and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was keen to add depth to his squad at the Emirates following a disappointing season.

Parlour told Gambling.com: ‘I like Alexander Isak from Sweden.

“Going forward, he’s been excellent, he’s pacey, has really good feet, a bit of strength and very direct.

“He’s been the one that has stood out for me so far in the tournament. He’s a young man with a lot of potential.

Ray Parlour was impressed by Isak during Sweden’s Euro 2020 campaign, the reason why he had all the good words for the player.

“I’ve heard he has another release clause in his contract, whether Arsenal will look at that I don’t know, but he’s one player who has really caught my eye even though they’ve gone out now.

“He looked really lively in all their games and he’s not scared to get the ball and take on players.

“I’ve been impressed with him. He’s got lots of attributes and maybe Arsenal will take a look at him as a potential player to bring in.”

Howbeit the North London outfit has confirmed the signatures of signing Nuno Tavares from Benfica and Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht and are expected to do more signings before the end of the window.

Brighton defender Ben White is believed to be the next to join up at the Emirates Stadium as it is understood that a fee has been agreed upon between the two clubs.

Arsenal’s showdown with Tottenham was nothing short of a roller-coaster ride! The Gunners surged early on with goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (own goal), Saka, and Havertz, setting the stage for a tough game. 

However, Tottenham fought back fiercely, narrowing the gap with two goals from Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min.

It was a nail-biting affair until the final whistle, but Arsenal ultimately clinched a vital 3-2 victory. 

This win showcased Arsenal’s determination and highlighted areas for improvement, especially in defense. Nevertheless, a thrilling display of skill and resilience left fans on the edge of their seats throughout the match.

This season has been one of the most impressive in Arsenal football history. For instance, Saka did great, scoring over 19 goals in total and 15 in the English Premier League. No English player for Arsenal has done that in over 25 years.

Also, Gunner’s demolition of Chelsea (5-0) earned them their Hundredth goal of the season, first time since 2004/2005 season.

Havertz did well, helping with 18 goals this season, which is more than Bruno Fernandes (17), Luis Diaz (16), and Diogo Jota (13).

Arsenal scored 16 goals from corners, the most since 2016-17.

Rice made six assists in 2024, more than anyone else in the league this year. 

Arteta hasn’t lost to top teams, and Arsenal won for the first time in 36 years back-to-back away games against Spurs.

City downed Nottingham Forest

Manchester City Downed Nottingham Forest

Manchester City didn’t exactly cruise to victory against Nottingham Forest, but they got the job done with a 2-0 win, keeping the heat on Arsenal at the top. Josko Gvardiol and Erling Haaland found the net, with Haaland making a smashing return from injury. 

Forest had their chances but couldn’t finish, unlike Haaland, who made it count. It wasn’t all smooth sailing for City, though, with Ederson getting injured again and Forest putting up a fight. City’s knack for grinding out wins, even on tough days, shows their championship mindset.

Anderson’s injury doesn’t look good. 

Pep Guardiola dropped a worrying bombshell about Ederson’s injury after Manchester City clashes with Nottingham Forest, admitting, “It doesn’t look good.” 

Seeing Ederson leave with his arm in a sling was a tough sight for City fans. With Phil Foden and Ruben Dias also out sick, City has a few headaches. 

Ederson’s injury from a clash with Willy Boly raises doubts about his availability for the crucial run-in, especially with a big game against Manchester United looming. 

It’s a nervy time for City supporters, hoping their star keeper can shake off the knock and keep their title hopes alive.

City will play Wolves at home this Saturday, and the next game will be six days later. Then, they’ll hit the road to face Fulham on the penultimate weekend. 

A midweek showdown against Tottenham awaits, leading to their last game against West Ham at home. 

It’s crystal clear for the Blues: bagging victories in these remaining fixtures could see them snatch the title from Arsenal’s grasp.

Guardiola Spoke up on Foden’s absence.

So, Guardiola spilled the beans on Foden’s absence, saying, “He’s not ready. He’s ill.” It’s a bummer because Foden’s been killing it this season with 16 goals and seven assists.

Stuff happens in a long season. So, City had to switch gears without their star player, leaning on De Bruyne and Grealish for some attacking firepower against Nottingham Forest. 

Conclusion

Manchester City won against Nottingham Forest, while Arsenal celebrated a thrilling victory over Tottenham. 

But there’s some worry, too. Ederson got injured during the game, and Phil Foden couldn’t play due to illness. 

With 3 to four matches to go, Arsenal and Manchester City are on a tight run with all at stake as the winner takes it all.

Slot believes an agreement will be reached soon, despite Feyenoord holding out for a record fee of £10-£12m. He expressed confidence in the negotiation process and his desire to join Liverpool. 

Slot’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, has a good relationship with Liverpool, and personal terms are not expected to be an issue. Slot has been successful at Feyenoord, winning the Eredivisie title last season. Not only that but also reaching the Europa Conference League final in 2022.

Arsenal handed a four-person transfer boost

Arsenal’s gearing up for a power-packed summer, with former Gunner Mikael Silvestre tipping them to go all-in for some top talent. He’s got his eye on Victor Osimhen or Ollie Watkins up front, plus Crystal Palace gems Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze out wide. Silvestre reckons these signings could give Arsenal the firepower they need to keep their Premier League title dreams alive.

He’s singing the praises of Osimhen and Watkins, saying they could bag 30-40 goals a season with the exemplary service from Arsenal’s midfield maestros. And when it comes to Olise and Eze, he’s all about their flair and unpredictability, seeing them as game-changers on the wings.

Oshimen to Arsenal

Watkins has been lighting up the pitch for Aston Villa, notching an impressive 26 goals and 12 assists this season. Osimhen’s been no slouch either, hitting 15 goals for Napoli. And over at Palace, Olise and Eze have been making waves with their goal-scoring and playmaking skills.

But snagging these talents won’t be a walk in the park, especially with Watkins recently committing to Villa with a new deal.

Still, if Arsenal can pull it off, these signings would give them the edge they need to compete for silverware next season. It’s an exciting time for Arsenal fans, with dreams of glory on the horizon.

Michael Olise has a clever contract clause that may cost Man Utd millions more to land a deal.

Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise is on Manchester United’s radar for the upcoming transfer window, but luring him might come with a hefty price tag. Ollise has been turning heads lately, especially alongside Eberechi Eze under manager Oliver Glasner.

United’s interested, but Palace won’t let Olise go cheaply. They’re asking for over £60 million, and Eze’s in the same boat.

Both players signed long deals, but these tricky release clauses are involved. Last year, Chelsea tried to swoop in for Olise, but Palace stood firm.

Despite the speculation, Olise seems happy where he is, only eyeing a move to a club that matches his style and ambition. Even former United striker Dwight Yorke thinks Olise and Eze would be game-changers in the United attack, urging the club’s owners to make a move.

Conclusion

What a day in football! It looks like Liverpool’s getting closer to naming Arne Slot as their new coach, which could shake things up at Anfield. 

And Arsenal fans, myself included, are buzzing about the rumours of us snagging Osimhen, Watkins, Olise, and Eze – talk about a boost! And now, to top it off, it seems Manchester United’s eyeing Olise, too. 

The summer transfer window’s heating up, and I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!
