Published

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves could be heading to Arsenal this summer transfer window as it is understood that the North London outfit have made “strong contact” with the Portuguese’s camp.

Arsenal will have to battle his signature with their Premier League rivals Manchester United, who are also keen to bring in a midfielder, with the future of Paul Pogba uncertain at the club.

Speaking on the Transfer Window Podcast, Duncan Castles claimed the Molineux outfit wants £50million for his signature.

However, “there’s a feeling” that the price for the Portugal international could go as low as £40million, he added.

Castles said “My guidance is that they’re asking [for] £50million at the moment, with Arsenal already having made quite strong contact with Wolves and with Neves about the deal.

“You have Manchester United also in the market for a defensive midfielder, and there’s a feeling that the price might go as low as £40million.”

Should the Gunners capture the signature of Ruben Neves, Gianluca Di Marzio claimed he would replace Granit Xhaka with the Switzerland midfielder not willing o remain at the Emirates Stadium.

He is tipped to join AS Roma but Arsenal will not let him leave unless they find a replacement.

Howbeit, Eurosport’s Dean Jones, speaking on The Football Terrace podcast, claims Man United’s interest is the midfielder is ‘genuine’.

“I’m told that the Neves pursuit is genuine,” he said.

“And while Arsenal are the most active in trying to get that over the line, United are still in the conversation.

“Bruno Fernandes is obviously very keen for Neves to join and the club are aware of that.”

Jamie O’Hara apologized after making exit call for this Arsenal star

Published

on

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has apologised to Arsenal star William Saliba for previously asking the North London outfit to sell him this summer.

Saliba has just returned from a loan spell at Marseille and gave a good impression during the preseason but that was not enough to convince the former player-turned pundit.

“Who?” O’Hara said on TalkSPORT when asked about Saliba earlier this month. “I mean you’re asking me about players, I have no interest in Arsenal whatsoever.

“If you have loaned him out and he has been there three seasons, you’ve loaned him out twice (then) he obviously ain’t (sic) good enough. Get rid of him.”

But after watching the Frenchman deliver a Man of The Match performance against Crystal Palace and another one against Leicester City, he owned up to his error and apologized.

Speaking about the former Marseille loanee on talkSPORT, he said: “I wasn’t sure of him because he’d gone out on loan, I hadn’t seen him play loads. I was thinking maybe he wasn’t up to scratch to play for this team.

“And I’ll apologise, I absolutely got that wrong. He is the real deal, what a signing.

“What a player he is and I know that he’s young but he could be sensational. He’s still got things to work on, like his positioning, but he looks really, really good.”

Liverpool tipped to snap up top Arsenal target as Gunners delay move

Published

on

Former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell has tipped Liverpool to make a move for top Arsenal target Youri Tielemans this summer transfer window.

He noted that Youri Tielemans would be interested if Liverpool decided to make an offer as he is keen on exiting Leicester City.

Arsenal have made their interest known but have delayed making a move for the midfielder as time continues to tick

Meanwhile, Liverpool are in dire need of midfielders. Thiago Alcantara’s recent injury against Fulham adds him to the list of injured midfielders along with Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Also the Merseyside club are yet to replace Georginio Wijnaldum since his move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2021.

No doubt, a player like Youri Tielemans, who is almost injury-free all the time and with consistent performances to boot would be welcomed at Anfield.

The 25 year old Belgian is into the last year of his contract at Leicester City. He has been linked to the Reds in the past as well.

“When you look at Thiago, his game and what he brings to Liverpool, Tielemans could go someway to replacing that. Thiago brings craft to that Liverpool midfield. Tielemans brings that as well”

Kevin Campbell reveals Arsenal linked with another winger, but he’s not carried away, gives reasons

Published

Arsenal have been linked with Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby, one of the finest players in the Bundesliga.

Moussa Diaby is another name that has been mentioned outside Yeremy Pino of Villarreal as the Gunners continue to search for a winger that would replace Nicolas Pepe.

However, Kevin Campbell says he will not be carried away by the hype around the player ad he gives reasons.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs if Diaby would be an upgrade on the potentially departing Pepe at the Emirates, Campbell said: “You could say that.

“You never really know until they come in though.

“One thing we have do know is that Moussa Diaby is very direct and very skilful. He is a real creator. He can go both way, inside and outside.

“It looks like he tracks back and does the dirty work as well. That is what can be levelled at Pepe. He is good going forward but the other side of his game is lacking intensity.

“Diaby is a good player but you never really know until they come in. He has been coveted by a few clubs. [Mikel] Arteta and Edu do their homework.”

Fans already happy with this man at Arsenal but he’s been warned anything can happen if…

Published

on

While players continue to exit and join Arsenal, manager Mikel Arteta is another name that could be mentioned as an exit from the Emirates Stadium, according to former player William Gallas if he fails to deliver top four finish.

The Gunners have gone beyond the £100million mark yet again with acquisitions of former Manchester City duo Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.

This therefore means that expectations have been raised and a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace in their Premier League opener and another against Leicester City has seen Arsenal touted by many as qualifiers for next season’s Champions League.

But if that doesn’t happen, William Gallas said he Arteta could be sacked.

Speaking to Genting Casino, the Frenchman explained: “Of course he will be in big trouble if they don’t make top four. Arteta has been asked to make the top four and he didn’t do it last season. If Arsenal don’t play in the Champions League next season, it would cause a lot of drama.

“They have to have a great season, possibly win the Premier League, at least qualify for the Champions League. They have just bought new players, it’s in the hands of Arteta and the players.

“It will be a big problem for all of them if they don’t do their job to qualify in the Champions League.”
