Mesut Ozil is beginning to get back his impressive form after a turbulent period in his career.

The 29-year-old failed to score a goal at the Russia 2018 World Cup as Germany crashed out of the tournament at the group stage for the first time in their history.

At club football, the former Real Madrid started the campaign on a worst possible way and he was replaced in the second half of their season opener against Manchester City.

However, the playmaker returned to blistering form against Cardiff, where he helped the Gunners to their second victory of the season before the international break.

Ozil was awesome against Newcastle as he scored his maiden goal of the season to give the Emirates outfits their deserved victory over Rafa Benitez’s side.

His display on Saturday was applauded by fans and pundits, however, Bournemouth goalie Asmir Begovic is the latest player to sign his praise.

According to the Cherries goaltender, Ozil is a great player, a very unselfish player who loves to dash forward with the ball.

He confesses he is a fan of the player whom he sees as world-class attacking midfielder and as a player who is ready to fight for his teammates during matches.

Begovic is having a great season with the Cherries so far, the former Chelsea goalkeeper has helped his side to three wins, though, he’s yet to keep a clean sheet.

Jealousy or regrets? What Griezmann said about Salah.

Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez has decided to stay at the club despite the strong interest from several European clubs including Arsenal.

This was confirmed by the ESPN who claimed that sources close to the player revealed that he wants to stay at the Allianz Arena until the end of the season at the minimum and that Bayern would like to keep him at the club.

Earlier reports had claimed that North London giants Arsenal were keen on a move for him in the current transfer window in the bid to strengthen their creative options.

It was further revealed that the Gunners can sign the Colombian international playmaker on loan for the remainder of the season for just £3m.

The said fee is for the remaining six months on the two-year loan deal that he signed with the Bavarian giants whom the former FC Porto and AS Monaco player joined from Champions League holders Real Madrid at the start of the last campaign.

Bayern Munich were said to have paid a whooping sum of £11.5m for the loan deal with an option to buy him permanently for £37m this summer.

It remains to be seen whether the German champions will take up that option (buying him outrightly).

Charlie Nicholas

Former Arsenal player Charlie Nicholas has called on manager Unai Emery to sell three members of the playing squad at the club including the controversial Mesut Ozil.

German playmaker Ozil has been hugging the headlines for weeks after falling out with Unai Emery having failed to adapt to the new tactics/methods introduced by the Spaniard.

Mesut Ozil has been left out of the Arsenal squad for tactical reasons on several occasions including last weekend’s 1-0 away defeat at the hands of London rivals West Ham United in the Gunners’ last Premier League game.

Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas spoke about the Arsenal squad while he was doing his punditry job on Sky Sports as monitored by the Metro.

He told the Gunners boss to sell the aforementioned Ozil and the defensive duo of Shkrodan Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny.

Nicholas is certain that Arsenal can get buyers for Ozil from the Chinese clubs if West Ham United forward Marko Arnautovic is attracting strong interest from a club in the Chinese Super League.

He also asked Unai Emery to release club skipper Laurent Koscielny and sell Shkrodan Mustafi as he tried to rebuild his defence.

The ex-Arsenal player had earlier said that he has already lost hope on a top-four finish.

Arsenal Fans

Experienced journalist Guillem Balague has revealed that Arsenal will spend money on transfers during this summer’s transfer window.

Arsenal have been in the spotlight for the better part of the January transfer window after club manager Unai Emery told reporters at a press conference that the Gunners don’t have money to spend on signings this month and that they can only sign players on loan.

The revelation from the Spanish tactician has led to an uproar amongst the Arsenal faithful who are at a loss as to why senior club officials can’t spend money on a playing squad crying out for reinforcements.

Guillem Balague via his transfer show monitored by Football London explained that Arsenal spent a lot of money in the last two transfer windows and that has handicapped the club in a big way in the current transfer window.

The Spanish La Liga expert went on to say that Arsenal will spend money on players in the summer.

Arsenal spent £70m on the quintet of Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Bernd Leno last summer and the spendings were preceded by a club-record transfer for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last January as well as the big wages handed out to both Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the first few months of 2018.

Denis Suarez

Premier League giants Arsenal will reportedly pay a €2m loan fee for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez after they reached an agreement with the Catalans over his transfer.

Spanish international star Denis Suarez has emerged as the Gunners’ top target in the January transfer window with Arsenal manager Unai Emery keen to reunite with his former player.

Denis Suarez played under the Spaniard while he was the Sevilla manager and the 25-year-old excelled a great deal under him.

He is a utility player that can play as a central midfielder and on the wings especially the left wing.

The loan fee was revealed by Spanish media outlet RAC1.

It was further disclosed that the Gunners will have to pay €20m at the end of the short-term loan contract this summer.

Denis Suarez is keen to leave Barcelona this month in search of more playing time.

The Spaniard has been a bit-part player for Barcelona under manager Ernesto Valverde this season.

He could be a direct replacement for Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey who’s almost certain to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

Ramsey has already agreed to a free transfer move to Juventus after undergoing his medical and an official announcement is expected next month.

Mesut Ozil

North London giants Arsenal have reportedly offered star midfielder Mesut Ozil to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan.

This was revealed by a publication from the Daily Star.

The Gunners are trying to offload 2014 World Cup winner Mesut Ozil to free up some funds for transfers.

The German is by far the highest paid player at the Emirates Stadium with weekly wages of £350,000.

He still has two-and-a-half years left on the three-year contract that he signed last February when former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was in charge.

Wenger has since been replaced by Spanish tactician Unai Emery who has dropped Mesut Ozil from the Arsenal squad on several occasions after the former Real Madrid playmaker failed to adapt to his tactics.

There are numerous interests from Italy, Turkey, and China in Mesut Ozil but the Gunners will find it hard to move him on due to his big wages.

Unai Emery still thinks he can be a part of his team on the long run following his latest interview.

The former Valencia and Almeria manager was speaking during his pre-match press conference on Thursday ahead of the crucial London Derby clash with Chelsea as the race for the top four hots up in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsey

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement with Italian Serie A giants Juventus.

According to Sky Sports, the Welshman signed the contract earlier this week after undergoing his medical with an official announcement expected next month.

Italian champions Juventus have won the race to sign Ramsey ahead of several clubs on the European football scene.

European sides like Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, AS Roma were all interested in the former Cardiff City player.

Aaron Ramsey will leave the Gunners at the end of his contract this summer after senior club officials deemed it fit not to offer him a new deal that would have committed his long-term future to Arsenal.

The Welsh international star has six months left on his Arsenal deal meaning that he can start to negotiate with foreign clubs about a free transfer move this summer.

He has scored four goals in 31 appearances for Arsenal since the start of the season with two goals and six assists in the Premier League alone.

Aaron Ramsey is the longest serving player in the current Arsenal squad after joining the club from newly promoted Premier League side Cardiff City over a decade ago.

He signed for Arsenal in a £5m deal in 2008.

Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Sporting Braga striker Francisco Trincao as they plot a move for the Portuguese striker.

Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb claim that the Gunners will have to face the threat of Serie A champions Juventus in the quest to sign the young Portuguese attacker.

Francisco Trincao plays for the Sporting Braga B team and he has made seven appearances for them this season.

It was revealed that Arsenal scouts have watched him on several occasions this season but any transfer might have to wait till the summer with the Gunners handicapped with funds at the moment.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that the club can only sign players on loan in the current transfer window.

Any permanent transfer might have to wait until this summer as a result of the Gunners’ lack of financial strength this January.

Arsenal are targeting a loan transfer for Spanish midfielder Denis Suarez who’s on the payroll of La Liga giants Barcelona.

The Catalans want a permanent transfer to sanction his exit from the club but the Gunners are holding out for a loan deal with the option to make the loan transfer a permanent deal during the summer’s transfer window.

Hirving Lozano

Arsenal are reportedly plotting a transfer for highly rated PSV Eindhoven star Hirving Lozano.

According to the publication from Italian media outlet Tuttomercatoweb, the Gunners are stepping up their interest in the Mexican international.

Arsenal have joined other clubs in expressing their interest in him.

The Gunners have already confirmed that they can only sign players on loan in the current January transfer window but that has not stopped the club from identifying possible signings including Hirving Lozano.

Mexican attacker Lozano has been one of the standout performers in the Dutch Eredivisie over the past two seasons.

He has also been attracting the interest of major European heavyweights like Chelsea and Spanish champions Barcelona though Italian Serie A giants Napoli are believed to be in pole position for him.

Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of the player with reports claiming that the Italians have already held talks with his agent Mino Raiola.

Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven have already slapped a €40m (£35m) asking price on Hirving Lozano which is a significant increase on the transfer fee required to sign him shortly after last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

PSV had earlier slapped a €30m (£26m) asking price on him.

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

Published

on

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.
