Aaron Ramsey

Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has berated North London giants Arsenal for letting midfielder Aaron Ramsey run down his contract at the club.

Ramsey is expected to leave Arsenal as a free agent upon the expiration of his contract with the club.

His contract runs out at the end of the season and recent reports suggest that his next destination is the Juventus Stadium in Italy.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Jamie Redknapp questioned why Arsenal would let an important player like Ramsey leave the club before bemoaning the inability to recoup any transfer fee for his exit.

The footballer turned pundit further said that Arsenal will have to spend £40m at least if they want to get a replacement for Aaron Ramsey in the summer.

Jamie Redknapp was speaking on the back of a very good performance from Ramsey in the London Derby clash with Chelsea on Saturday night in what was a Premier League game.

Aaron Ramsey produced a very good display to help the Gunners to a 2-0 victory over Chelsea courtesy goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny.

The two goals came in the first half as the Gunners closed in on Chelsea by moving to within three points on the league table.

Bjorn Engels

Olympiacos defender Bjorn Engels has talked up his desire to join Premier League giants Arsenal.

The 24-year-old spoke about his dream move in a recent interview with French publication L’Equipe via the Daily Express.

He further revealed that his wife is a staunch supporter of Premier League leaders and that she would prefer a move to the Reds rather than his dream transfer to Arsenal.

Bjorn Engels is on loan at Greek Super League giants Olympiacos from French Ligue 1 club Stade Reims.

The Belgian centre back was previously linked with the Premier League following the interest from Merseyside giants Everton.

Bjorn Engels has not played for Belgium at the senior level though he has featured for his country at other levels especially the age grade teams.

Arsenal are in need of defensive reinforcements but the North Londoners have not expressed an interest in the Belgian defender.

The Gunners have been able to keep just four clean sheets this season with the last of those coming during the London Derby clash with Chelsea on Saturday night in the Premier League.

Arsenal defeated Chelsea 2-0 courtesy first goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscielny thereby reducing the gap to the Blues to just three points in the keenly contested race for a top-four finish at the end of the season.

Gelson Martins

Arsenal are reportedly eyeing a move for Atletico Madrid winger Gelson Martins in this January transfer window.

This is according to the publication from Portuguese news outlet O Jogo via Sky Sports.

It was revealed that the Gunners are monitoring his situation at the new Wanda Metropolitano.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for the 23-year-old during last summer’s transfer window when the player was still on the books of Portuguese Super League giants Sporting Lisbon.

He joined Atletico Madrid last summer but he has not been able to make any meaningful impact at the club.

Gelson Martins has started just one league game for Atletico Madrid since the start of the season with seven more appearances coming from the substitute bench.

Arsenal might need to fend off the interest of French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco who are also keen on the Portuguese international player.

Ex-Arsenal striker Thierry Henry is the current Monaco manager and he’s said to be interested in Gelson Martins in his quest to lead his team away from the relegation zone.

The Arsenal legend is under pressure to perform at Monaco and he has already strengthened his team with the signing of ex-Gunners teammate Cesc Fabregas.

Former Arsenal right-back Lee Dixon has berated the hierarchy at the club following the admission that the Gunners won’t be able to make permanent signings in the current January transfer window.

The Arsenal legend spoke about the North London club and transfers on BBC Radio 5 Live as monitored by the Daily Express.

The footballer turned pundit said that the Gunners’ stance on permanent signings is a disastrous statement to make to the Arsenal fans.

Gunners boss Unai Emery admitted earlier this month that the club won’t be able to sign players permanently this month.

The Spaniard said that Arsenal can only sign players on loan in the current January transfer window and that there are no funds to secure the permanent transfer of players.

Without any signings, Unai Emery and his players were able to claw their way back into the race for the top four on the Premier League table with a big win over London rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal defeated the Blues 2-0 courtesy two first half goals from Alexander Lacazette and team captain Laurent Koscielny.

It was the 10th goal scored by French international striker Lacazette in all competitions this term.

On Koscielny’s part, it was his first goal since his return from a long-term injury problem.

Why we lost to Arsenal, Sarri

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given a hint on why his side suffered a humiliating 2-0 defeat in the hands of the North London outfit Arsenal on Saturday evening

The West London side were not only defeated but were outplayed by Arsenal which is the reason why the Italian boss lashes out on the players as he puts the blame on them.

It has been an inconsistent performance by the West London side since their defeat to Tottenham which ended their 18 games unbeaten run and that has to be corrected by the former Napoli manager.

However, he stated that he lost because some of the players in his team seem difficult to motivate as he noted that he had made efforts to do that after their defeat to the other North London side Tottenham but that has not worked yet with the defeat.

Meanwhile, the Blues boss is ready to take a part of the blame because his side failed to show up completely against the Gunners team.

However, the game between both sides have been reduced to three points which leave the race for a top-four finish very open and more competitive especially with United coming from behind.

Arsenal 2 : 0 Chelsea – Three talking points from the game

arsenal

The Gunners returned to winning ways as they thrashed Chelsea 2-0 to the Emirates stadium in one of Saturday’s Premier League game.

The Blues had defeated Arsenal in Emery’s first game of the season, Maurizio Sarri’s side narrowly overcame the Gunners’ challenge 2-1 at Stamford Bridge last year.

However, yesterday’s game was totally different from the previous fixture in August 2018 as the North London club dominated the Blues for the most part of the game.

Emery’s men deservedly took the lead in the 14th minute when Lacazette powered a beautiful shot past Kepa Arrizabalaga who was busy all through the clash.

The home side doubled their lead after 25 minutes when Laurent Koscielny scored with his shoulder.

The Blues were made to chase the game before half time and they couldn’t find the back of the net throughout the mouthwatering and entertaining game.

Here are the top three talking points from the game.

There’s more to Ozil’s omission than Emery’s ‘tactical reason’

It has been long I saw Ozil play a full match. It’s either he was subbed out or he was subbed in by Emery.

In fact, it’s been a while he featured in Arsenal kit and Emery keeps providing ‘tactical reasons’ for the player’s regular omission.

In a game that’s as classic as Saturday’s fixture, every Arsenal fans would expect the German star to be in the starting lineup so as to create more chances with his creativity.

But the former Real Madrid playmaker was surprisingly left out of the starting XI which further suggested that there are off-field crises between the player and the Spanish tactician.
