Just Too Awful: Emery Must Get Rid Of This Star To Qualify For Champions League Next Season

Granit Xhaka

Gunners opinion about Granit Xhaka

Unai Emery was a happy man following his side’s 3-1 win over West Ham yesterday.

The former Sevilla manager started the season with two straight defeats Manchester City and Chelsea respectively but he bounced back to winning ways with a two-goal victory over the Hammers.

Though the team won the third fixture of the season, Emery’s side were unconvincing at the middle of the pitch and that has made the Gunners fans called for Torreira’s inclusion in the starting lineup ahead of Granit Xhaka in subsequent matches.

Xhaka has been one of the under-performing players in the Gunners squad since the beginning of the season.

The player, who was lively during his first season at the Emirates Stadium, hasn’t shown any glimpse of brilliance under Unai Emery.

Though the Spanish gaffer gave him the chance to start against the Blues last week, he couldn’t justify Emery’s faith in him as he was hauled off the encounter in the 45th minute due to poor performance.

Having failed to prove a point to Emery and his backroom staff, the Swiss might need to be released to any club who are interested in his signature before the close of the window.

Should he depart the Emirates Stadium, Emery would give Uruguayan star Lucas Torreira, who has been wonderful during his cameo appearances for the team, the opportunity to start alongside Ozil and impressive youngster Guendouzi at the middle of the pitch for the rest of the season.

Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac has dismissed exit rumors hovering over midfielder James Rodriguez.

The Colombian international playmaker has been linked with an exit from the German club whom he joined at the start of last season.

James Rodriguez signed for the Bavarian giants from European champions Real Madrid on a two-year loan deal after Bayern paid £11.5m for him with the option to make it permanent for around £37m.

James Rodriguez has not had the same impact as last season in this new campaign amidst reports that he has fallen out of favour with Niko Kovac.

The Croatian tactician spoke about James Rodriguez ahead of his side’s Bundesliga clash with TSG Hoffenheim at the weekend.

Niko Kovac revealed that the Colombian national team talisman wants to stay at the Allianz Arena just like the player said during a recent event.

This is certainly not what Arsenal fans want to hear with the Gunners faithful crying out for senior club officials to reinforce the squad with new signings.

The Gunners have been touted as a potential destination for James Rodriguez with reports claiming that Arsenal can sign him for the remainder of his Bayern Munich loan deal for just £3m.

95% done deal, Arsenal to sign £14m-rated playmaker on Monday

Denis Suarez

Arsenal are close to completing their much-anticipated move for Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez who is wanted out of Camp Nou this month.

Daily Star report that the Gunners have reached a £14.2m agreement with the Catalans and they could confirm the player’s signature as soon as next week Monday.

The 25-year-old midfielder isn’t rated by Ernesto Valverde as the manager often left out of his match-day squad and he is said to be heading to the Emirates stadium.

Unai Emery worked with Denis while he was with Sevilla but both parties didn’t spend much time together before the player’s loan deal came to an end.

It should be recalled that Emery told reporters last week that he’s hoping to add more quality players to his attacking frontline but he’s facing a huge financial setback.

The Daily Star also said the Spanish tactician might sanction Mesut Ozil’s speculated move to Atletico Madrid so as to fund his move for Denis Suarez.

As a result of Arsenal’s financial instability, Unai Emery is set to pull out of the race for Belgian midfielder Yannick Carrasco.

According to the Sun, the Gunners are likely to cool their interest in the Dalian Yifang’s player having failed to meet his price tag.

Should the Gunners hierarchy fail to raise fund to boost their chances of winning Carrasco’s services, Manchester United will be in a firm position to capture the Belgian star.

The Red Devils are said to be eyeing a possible move for his services and Arsenal’s financial crises gives them a huge chance of luring Carrasco to Old Trafford.

Yannick Carrasco

Premier League giants Arsenal will need to offload controversial midfielder Mesut Ozil in their quest to sign China-based winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

Yannick Carrasco plays for Chinese Super League outfit Dalian Yifang at the moment.

Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb revealed that the Gunners can only afford the huge financial salary of the former AS Monaco and Atletico Madrid winger if they can get the wages of Mesut Ozil off the books at Arsenal.

Yannick Carrasco earns at least £170,000 on a weekly basis at the Chinese Super League club.

Mesut Ozil has lost his starting place at Arsenal since Unai Emery took over and reports claim that the Spanish coach has already offered to two Italian clubs namely Juventus and Inter Milan.

Arsenal will find it hard to get Mesut Ozil and his £350,000 weekly wages off the wage bill at the club.

2014 World Cup winner Ozil signed the contract in February 2018 and he still has two-and-a-half years left on the three-year deal that he signed last year.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has dropped Mesut Ozil from his squad on several occasions this season including last weekend’s London Derby clash with West Ham United.

Without the German, Arsenal were beaten 1-0 by their hosts with Declan Rice getting the only goal of the game.

Yannick Carrasco

Experienced Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has confirmed that North London giants Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign exciting winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

An Arsenal transfer for Carrasco will be possible on two conditions.

Firstly, he has to take a pay cut on his £160,000 per week salary.

The other condition is that his Chinese club would opt for a loan arrangement with the Gunners for the former AS Roma forward rather than their preference for a permanent deal.

Arsenal have been restricted to possible loan signings this month after it was revealed that the club has no money to spend in this transfer window.
