Unai Emery

The majority of the Arsenal fans have been left disappointed after club manager Unai Emery dropped a transfer bombshell in his latest interview.

Spanish tactician Unai Emery revealed that the Gunners can only sign players on loan despite the fact his squad has been depleted as a result of injury.

Arsenal fans were expecting club officials to splash the cash on players that will boost the squad for the second half of the season.

The North Londoners are just three points off the top four places that will guarantee UEFA Champions League qualification in the Premier League.

Arsenal will face BATE Borisov FC of Belarus in the round of 32 in the Europa League.

In the FA Cup, Arsenal will face top four rivals Manchester United in the fourth round of the competition.

Unai Emery spoke about potential loan signings for the Gunners during his pre-match press conference ahead of the London Derby clash with West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Premier League clash between the two sides is the first game of Matchweek 22.

Without any signing till date in the current January transfer window, Arsenal manager Unai Emery would be hoping that his team can get the three points at stake.

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Wenger has since been replaced by Spanish tactician Unai Emery who has dropped Mesut Ozil from the Arsenal squad on several occasions after the former Real Madrid playmaker failed to adapt to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

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.

North London giants Arsenal have made a breakthrough in their bid to sign Spanish international midfielder Denis Suarez from La Liga giants Barcelona during the ongoing January transfer window.

According to the Daily Express, the Gunners are closing in on a move for the Barcelona star after both parties reached an amicable point over his transfer.

Arsenal initially wanted a loan deal with the option to buy the talented midfielder in the summer but Barcelona were adamant that they will only sanction a permanent transfer for the 25-year-old.

It was revealed that both clubs have agreed for Denis Suarez to join Arsenal on loan for the rest of the season with an obligation to make the deal permanent for £18m when his loan contract ends in the summer.

The Spaniard will reunite with compatriot Unai Emery having played under the Arsenal manager at Sevilla in 2015.

Denis Suarez has been identified as a major transfer target for the Gunners in this transfer window by Unai Emery alongside Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega but will have to pay his €20m release clause rather than a loan deal in the case of the Barcelona midfielder.

Unai Emery is looking to boost his squad with new signings for the second half of the season.
