Rio Ferdinand

Former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged the Red Devils to make efforts to add more options to the attack ahead of the coming season.

The message has been gotten by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who replied by stating that he will be on the lookout for more options in the attack.

There is no doubt that the Norwegian will get busy with additions when the summer window is opened. Jadon Sancho is first on the list of those wanted at the Old Trafford.

Man United have been scoring goals in their last few games which means an improvement in the team. They were able to thrash Bournemouth by 5-2 in the Premier League game on Saturday with all strikers, including Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood getting on the score sheet.

That is not enough to bank on, according to Rio Ferdinand who thinks that attacking department still needs reinforcement.

He stressed that his former team are three starters away from being contenders and not the pretenders they have been over the years.

While admitting that there are lots of improvements to behold in the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team, there is still need to equip ahead of the coming season to be able to win titles.

Curtis Jones, One of Liverpool’s biggest prospect in the Academy ranks, have signed a long-term deal at Anfield.

He has signed a five year contract extension which means the Reds have been able to secure their future by keeping one of the best at the club.

Jones has come through the youth ranks at the Anfield club, first joining them at under-nine but now he’s grown and has been fingered as those that would be promoted in the coming season.

The young lad will now continue his development under manager Jurgen Klopp as he has been handed an improved deal.

Liverpool have got a number of young prospects, and it is expected we see more of them in the coming season especially if the club hierarchy insists on not getting involved in the summer transfer window after claiming that the current squad has got all it takes to compete for another year.

However, Curtis Jones expressed delight for signing a new and improved deal with his childhood club and will only hope to be a part of the first team next season.

Arsenal fans have picked Norwich City star Emiliano Buendia as the player of their choice to replace Mesut Ozil when he leaves the club.

After a sensational performance last season, he is now in the Premier League for the first time and has handed seven assists so far.

Arsenal fans are of the opinion that Mesut Ozil should be doing what the skilful player does and should be shown the exit door if he can not deliver.

The German international has not been stable with the Arsenal team and issues of his weekly wage, and his performance have been drawn into controversies a number of times.

Many have called him out over his performance and there have been talks from some quarters of him leaving the club.

Mesut Ozil has been unmoved by the criticisms and has stressed a number of times that he will see out his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

No more worries, Arsenal striking option already says he is coming

The future of two Arsenal strikers, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates Stadium is uncertain with fears they could be having their last season with the club.

Aubameyang is currently in contract talks with the Gunners hierarchy and his demand seems to be unrealistic. He has requested for a £250,000-a-week deal and a 3 years contract which reports claim Arsenal are unwilling to pay.

He could therefore, be sold in the summer transfer window to cash in on him and avoid losing him for free.

Lacazette’s fate in Arsenal is also unknown following reports that he could be involved in a swap deal to Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey to switch to the Emirates Stadium.

This makes the need for a striking option in Arsenal urgent with a major target, Wout Weghorst from Wolfsburg already coming out to express his desire to join the North Lindon outfit.

A Bild report claims that Arsenal are in contention for the player with Newcastle and the Bundesliga outfit has slammed a price tag of £31.54 million for the Netherlands international.

Should Arsenal find him worthy, replacing Lacazette and Aubameyang, if they leave will not be difficult especially after the player has made a come-get-me plea.

The 27-year-old striker scored 16 goals and provided three assists in the Bundesliga this season.

Arsenal are in the market for new additions ahead of the summer transfer window as they look to improve their squad for next season’s challenge.

This has been confirmed by manager Mikel Arteta who claims the club are already making plans and they will do all that is necessary to strengthen and balance the squad.

The financing of their proposed deals could cause a hindrance, but they now have an added option to make money as advised by an Arsenal -oriented journalist Amy Lawrence when he appeared as a guest on the latest episode of the ‘Handbrake Off’ podcast.

He noted that the Gunners have not made use of French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi in few games over issues he does not know.

According to him, the young French midfielder could serve as an income if the Gunners decide to place him in the market.

Lawrence noted that Arsenal made a good investment in the player and his value has since increased since he joined which makes him an asset already.

The journalist claimed that the only reason why this should not happen is if Mikel Arteta is only trying to work on the player’s physiology for not playing him to be able to get the best of him later on.

If not, he is hopeful that Arsenal will make something meaningful from Guendouzi’s sale as he is a talented player with great potential.

English Premier League outfit Chelsea have earned the sum of £3 million from the transfer deal of Brazilian talent Nathan.

Nathan is not known at Chelsea because he has long been out on loan deals. He signed the player in 2015 from Atletico Paranaense after he impressed with Brazil’s youth teams. he lived in his shadow, and he could not beat the competition in the Chelsea team.

The Brazilian international has had loan spells at Vitesse, Amiens and Belenenses but they were all unsuccessful which forced him back to his homeland to join Mineiro on an initial season-long loan where he enjoyed little success. He is lucky to have his loan made permanent.

The Sun reports that the West London club splashed a £6.5 million price-tag for the now 24-year-old but was forced to take £3 million in order to part ways with the player.

The former Brazil youth international has scored five times in over 35 appearances for Mineiro to date.

While he could not give his best for Chelsea, there are hopes that he still has plenty to offer with time also at his advantage. Nathan is now 24 and can still establish himself in the Brazilian top-flight’s most dangerous attackers.

The Blues boss has now come out to state that he is still fighting hard to convince Willian on a new deal at the club.

Willian is insisting on a 3-year deal while Chelsea who are only ready to hand him 2 years because of the club’s policy on players who are more than 30 years of age.

There are fears that the much cherished friendship between Aubameyang and Lacazette is already nearing its end.

Both players have enjoyed amazing relationship both on and off the pitch. They are best of friends and that has helped them work perfectly in the Arsenal attack.

Unfortunately, the closeness between them is being threatened by the fact that they could be separated in the coming summer transfer window if reports of their future at the Emirates Stadium is anything to go by.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has got 12 months left to the end of his current Arsenal deal and efforts for talks of a new deal might be far from being fruitful.

The Gabon international has demanded a 3 years contract and a wage of £250,000-a-week. It is already assumed that the Gunners will not be able to meet up and will decide to cash in on him this summer to avoid losing him for free.

A similar case is associated with Lacazette as he is reportedly involved in a proposed swap deal to Atletico Madrid for Thomas Partey in the summer window.

Arsenal are keen on the Ghanaian midfielder and are ready to hand over the France International who is needed in Spain.

Should the above happen, both players will be forced to go separate ways and that might affect their friendship which obviously helped their performance at the Emirates Stadium.
