Bruno Fernandes

English Premier League outfit Man United have been linked with the signature of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes and there are claims that his deal will be sealed in the summer transfer window.

Bruno Fernandes is a player with big quality as a midfielder who has the ability to take any club to its greater height. He has been tipped to form a major part of the new Man United team that is said to be formed ahead of the coming season.

However, former Man United boss Jose Mourinho has got a lot to say about the big target but it is unclear if he can be trusted by the club especially after they parted ways on a bad note.

The Portuguese manager claim that he is not surprised about the quality of Bruno Fernandes as he hailed the playmaker for giving big surprises in his performance.

Jose Mourinho stated that Bruno Fernandes remains one of the best because of his ability to score so many goals as a midfielder.

It is therefore unclear if Man United will go by the judgement of their former manager in their bid to land the Sporting Lisbon playmaker in the summer transfer window.

According to him, Mikel Arteta is not going anywhere till the end of the season.

Mikel Arteta is a former Arsenal skipper and the Spaniard has been linked with a return to the Emirates Stadium in a managerial capacity.

He came close to bagging the Arsenal job last summer before senior club officials decided to give the position to Unai Emery but things didn’t work out for the former Valencia, Almeria and Sevilla manager.

Arsenal sacked Unai Emery last week Friday and the search for a new manager is on though club legend Freddie Ljungberg has been placed in charge of the team for now.

Aubameyang

North London giants Arsenal have been rocked with the news that star player Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has pulled out of talks over a new contract.

This is according to the publication from the Daily Mirror which revealed that Arsenal are in danger of losing their star player this summer unless they want to risk him walking out of the club for free.

Gabonese international Aubameyang will have one year left on his Arsenal deal at the end of this season and the Gunners won’t have any choice but to listen to offers for him next summer if his stance on a new contract remains the same.

Aubameyang is not ready to commit his long-term future to the Gunners since he’s not convinced that the team is on the right path.

Arsenal are in a distant 10th position on the table with just four wins from 15 games in the Premier League.

They are without a manager at the moment after the dismissal of Unai Emery.

Interim manager Freddie Ljungberg is in charge of the team but the club legend is unlikely to get the job full-time.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang signed for Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in January 2018 and he has scored 52 goals for the club.

Interim Arsenal manager Freddie Ljungberg has not started well in his new role following the dismissal of Unai Emery at the end of last month.

Club legend Freddie Ljungberg was named the temporary manager at Arsenal in the wake of the sacking of Spanish tactician Unai Emery for poor results and he has recorded a solitary point from his two games in charge of the team ahead of the Hammers game.

That solitary point came in his managerial bow against Norwich City last weekend as the Gunners were only able to secure a 2-2 draw away from home against the league newcomers.

The Norwich City game was followed by the disappointing loss at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Gunners were beaten 2-1 by the Seagulls courtesy the late goal from French striker Neal Maupay.

Record signing Nicholas Pepe has started the two games under Freddie Ljungberg from the bench but he made a very good cameo during the second half of the Brighton game and that has almost certainly earned him a place in the Arsenal XI For the away game at West Ham United.

Starting Arsenal XI: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka; Mesut Ozil, Nicholas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; Alexandre Lacazette.
