Signing This 44-goal Striker Could Be Emery’s Greatest Undoing

Mario Balotelli

Former Manchester City and highly controversial striker Mario Balotelli has rejuvenated his free-falling career in the just concluded season as he was able to score and make assists for his OGC Nice teammates.

The Italy international was able to score 44 goals in just 66 games, scoring a goal in every 1.5 minutes of action with the Ligue 1 side.

His impressive goalscoring ratio has won him a place in Italy squad under Roberto Mancini, who was his manager during their time at the Etihad Stadium.

Apart from earning him a place in Italy squad, Balotelli’s blistering form is attracting top European clubs – including Arsenal.

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly eyeing a move for the former Liverpool and Manchester City player in the summer.

Though getting ‘Super Mario’ will surely add more depth to the Gunners attacking line, the player’s attitude is one aspect that could bring division into the club’s dressing room.

The Italian striker is known for his indiscipline actions and that could distract Emery from concentrating on his mission to have a successful debut season at the Emirates stadium.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mktarryan, Mesut Ozil, Alex Iwobi, Alexandre Lacazette, and Danny Welbeck, Arsenal’s attacking prowess is equipped enough to cause havoc to any defense in the League next season.

Kieran Tierney

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.

Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has revealed that he might need to quit the club if one thing happens to his career at the Emirates Stadium.

In his latest interview as monitored by the Daily Star, Super Eagles star Iwobi said that the only thing that would force him out of the club is the arrival of Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha which would lead to lack of first team opportunities in the new season.

Arsenal have been seriously linked with a move for Ivorian national team player Zaha this summer.

Crystal Palace have slammed the asking price of £80m on Wilfried Zaha amidst the transfer interest from the Gunners.

Arsenal recently had a £40m bid turned down for the player.

Wilfried Zaha is the top transfer target for Arsenal for the moment as manager Unai Emery tries to boost his squad with some quality players before the new season which starts on the 8th of August.

The 26-year-old has openly talked about his desire to leave Crystal Palace to his dream club Arsenal this summer.

Arsenal have been linked with several alternatives in the event that they miss out on Wilfried Zaha.

The Gunners have been linked with other wingers like Gremio FC of Brazil attacker Everton Soares and Barcelona winger Malcom.

Kieran Tierney

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol has revealed the reason behind the latest failed bid from Arsenal for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney.

According to him, Arsenal recently failed with a £25m bid for the player despite the fact that it matched the asking price from Scottish champions Celtic.

The Sky Sports media personnel said that Celtic were unhappy with the add-ons accompanied with the deal.

Earlier reports had said that the North London giants made an initial bid of £18m plus £7m in add-ons thus totaling £25m.

Arsenal were denied with the latest bid as Celtic were not convinced by the condition attached to the add-ons which are centered on qualification for Champions League.

Gunners boss Unai Emery has identified the left-back position as the area to be strengthened ahead of the new season and Kieran Tierney is his top transfer target for the position.

The Scottish international player is presently out of action with a hernia injury but Unai Emery is still bent on signing him for Arsenal this summer.

The Gunners had earlier made two separate bids of £15m and £18m until the latest bid made earlier this month.

Arsenal have signed just one player this season after young Brazilian attacker Gabriel Martinelli was officially announced as a Gunner in the penultimate week.
