Arsenal Defender Emerges As Injury Doubt For Leicester City Clash

Published

on

Arsenal have been dealt a big injury blow following the news that defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos is a doubt for the next league game against Leicester City.

The Gunners play host to the Foxes in a Premier League Matchday 10 clash on Monday and Greek international centre back Sokratis is almost likely to miss the game.

Sokratis suffered an ankle sprain while he was on international duty with Greece.

The 30-year-old lasted for just 45 minutes during Greece’s 2-0 loss to hosts Finland in their UEFA Nations League meeting on Monday evening before he was replaced by Georgios Tzavellas at halftime.

Sokratis Papasthathopoulos has been an important squad member for Arsenal since his summer move.

The Gunners paid around £17.6m to secure his signing from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

He formed a formidable centre back partnership with Shkrodan Mustafi for the first five league games of the new campaign before sustaining an injury in the first half of the Gunners’ Matchday six meeting with Everton at the Emirates Stadium.

He was replaced by young English defender Rob Holding and has found it difficult to regain his place in the Arsenal team for Premier League matches since he recovered from the injury against Everton.

North London giants Arsenal have agreed to a loan deal for Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos.

According to BBC journalist David Ornstein, Dani Ceballos would spend the next season on loan at Arsenal without the option of a permanent deal.

The loan deal to Arsenal could be completed as early as Tuesday.

Dani Ceballos had earlier revealed in his last interview that he wants to play more this season and the Spaniard believes that he can make that wish happen at Arsenal.

The 22-year-old was on the outskirts of the Real Madrid team for the majority of last season but he’s expected to get more first-team opportunities at Arsenal.

Dani Ceballos has spent two seasons at Real Madrid since joining from fellow Spanish La Liga club Real Betis.

He was recently part of the Spanish team that won the European u21 Championship this summer.

Dani Ceballos and Spain beat Germany 2-1 in the final of the tournament hosted by Italy and San Marino.

The player would be a direct replacement for Aaron Ramsey who left the Gunners for Juventus this summer.

The Welsh international spent over a decade at Arsenal before leaving the club on a free transfer earlier this summer.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and his former employers at Bayern have been involved in a war of words over winger Leroy Sane.

Bayern Munich have been constantly linked with Manchester City winger Sane for the majority of this summer and their pursuit has led to some sort of tension between Guardiola and the Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Sane was previously linked to Arsenal at the earlier part of this summer’s transfer window.

On the pursuit of Sane, Pep Guardiola warned Bayern Munich to stay off his player during his press conference at the Premier League Asia Trophy at the weekend.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge while responding to the Manchester City manager in an interview monitored by The Sun took a swipe at the Spanish tactician.

The Bayern Munich supremo implied that Pep Guardiola is not aware of a lot of things at Manchester City.

Leroy Sane is attracting serious interest from the German champions who are looking for wing replacements for veterans Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben.

Ribery and Robben left the Bavarian giants at the end of last season shortly after they helped the team to a seventh successive league title.

Both players were on target in their final game for Bayern Munich.

Wilfried Zaha

North London giants Arsenal have received a major transfer setback in their quest to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha during the current transfer window.

According to The Sun, Crystal Palace are reluctant to sell the player to Arsenal unless the Gunners meet their £80m valuation.

The Eagles would only be interested in lowering their financial demands for a Champions League playing club.

Arsenal failed to qualify for the Champions League for the third successive season at the end of last season.

The Gunners finished outside the Champions League places at the end of last season.

Only the top four Premier League places guarantee Champions League football.

Arsenal missed out via a fifth-place finish at the end of the season.

The Gunners could have also qualified for Champions League football via the Europa League.

Arsenal were beaten 4-1 by London rivals Chelsea in the final of the competition.

Zaha has talked up his dream move to Arsenal having pointed out in one of his earlier interviews that he supported the North Londoners as a boy.

The 26-year-old has already told Crystal Palace officials that this summer is the right time for him to leave the club despite signing a new contract as early as last year.
