‘World cup hero’ makes Gunners decision

Domagoj Vida

DOMAGOJ VIDA does not want to join Arsenal according to reports in Turkey.

The future of the centre-back was a hot topic after the World Cup, in which he helped Croatia to the World Cup final, despite losing to France.

The 29-year-old has been heavily involved with Liverpool since last month and has obviously been more interested in Arsenal recently.

The Evening Standard reported yesterday that the Gunners would have to pay £ 26.9 million to sign Vida from the Turkish club Besiktas, but that they would consider a late move.

There was still no official approach, which provides only a few hours before the transfer window for English clubs and the Turkish outlet Aksam that Vida does not want the move.

Their report states that player Besiktas Transfer Manager Umut Guner has said that he does not want to join Arsenal because of his love for the city of Istanbul.
But Aksam says besiktas are interested in starting a deal, as the profit they have made after signing Vida at Dynamo Kyiv in January is profitable.
Rumors of an agreement were also triggered by a contribution by club president Fikret Orman on Instagram.
The head of Besiktas posted a video of himself walking through a park early in London, suggesting that he is in the capital of England to discuss details of a deal.
Arsenal would have to raise money through player sales to make a last-minute move after Emery spent more than £ 70m this summer.
Emery has since secured Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Socrates Papastathopoulous, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

Arsenal and their London rivals could be forced to do some business in the January Transfer window after Ruben Loftus-Cheek has made it clear that he wants to leave the Stamford Bridge.

The player has lacked playing time under manager Maurizio Sarri which he is unable to bear. He might at least, request for a loan move.

Loftus-Cheek’s decision to leave also bothers on the fact that he wants to have a return to the international stage after his successful loan spell at Crystal Palace in the last campaign gave him that opportunity.

Although, it has been reported that Palace will be interested in having the 22-year-old for another loan term but Arsenal are regarded as a strong contender for him.

A call from the North London club will be difficult to reject for Loftus-Cheek knowing the opportunity he will have to play at a bigger stage for the Emirates Stadium sides.

Arsenal are also expected to beat off interest from Everton who are also monitoring the situation to have the player.

However, with Aaron Ramsey seeming to leave the Gunners, there are expectations that Arsenal will push for a move for the player to help serve as a temporal cover for the Wales international.

Thierry Henry

French Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco have named Arsenal legend Thierry Henry as their new manager.

The announcement was made by the UEFA Champions League (UCL) campaigners earlier on Saturday after the 41-year-old put pen to paper on a contract that will run until June 2021.

The former Arsenal player replaces Portuguese tactician Leonardo Jardim who was sacked following the team’s lacklustre start to the new campaign.

Under his watch, AS Monaco won just one from their 11 games in all competitions this season.

The French Ligue 1 giants are presently in the relegation as they occupy 18th spot on the league table after one win from their nine games.

They have also lost both their Champions League games to Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid and German Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Thierry, who is an assistant manager with the Belgium national team, makes a return to his old hunting ground in a managerial capacity.

He spent two years in the club’s youth team before making his Monaco debut in 1994 under his manager at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger.

He spent five hugely successful years with the first team and went on to win the 1996/97 league title.

His managerial bow will be against Racing Strasbourg on Saturday, October 20.

Bernd Leno

New Arsenal shot-stopper Bernd Leno has revealed that compatriots Shkrodan Mustafi and Mesut Ozil played a big role in him moving from Germany to England during the last transfer window in the summer.

The 26-year-old spoke about his move to the Emirates Stadium in a chat with the club’s official website and that the two players convinced him to swap Bayer Leverkusen for Arsenal during the summer’s transfer window.

He further revealed that he has known Mustafi for over a decade having played together with him through the various German youth teams.

Bernd Leno signed a long-term contract at Arsenal this summer after the Gunners agreed to pay a reported fee of around €22m for his services.

Since moving to the Emirates Stadium, Leno has had to play second fiddle to the club’s vice-captain and first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech especially in the Premier League.

He featured in the cup competitions (Carabao Cup and Europa League games) until Cech suffered a hamstring injury during the Gunners’ 2-0 victory over Everyone at the Emirates Stadium.

The injury has since ruled out the retired Czech Republic international goalkeeper for one month and Bernd Leno has been in the Arsenal goal since then.
