Aaron Ramsey

Emerging reports reveal the possibility of former Arsenal player and Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey returning to the English Premier League in the coming summer transfer window.

Life has not been the same for the Wales international since he left Arsenal on a free deal to join the Italian Serie A giants after his contract expired. His journey with the club has not been smooth. He has not been a regular as expected.

It is, therefore, claimed that Juventus are keen on the signature of Chelsea star Jorginho and are ready to release Aaron Ramsey as bait to have the Italian international.

Jorginho seems also not needed at the Stamford Bridge which makes a deal likely as Chelsea will not mind the idea of having Aaron Ramsey at the club.

Aaron Ramsey has a good knowledge of the English Premier League and was highly rated and wanted by the Blues team before his exit from England.

Jorginho is also needed at Juventus with manager Maurizio Sarri hoping on a reunion with the Italian midfielder.

However, the Italian Serie A outfit are also ready to add Adrien Rabiot in the deal that will have Jorginho join the club ahead of the new season.

Popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has hinted that the North London outfit Arsenal will sign Runar Alex Runarsson this week with the hope that an agreement will be reached with Arsenal.

Runar Alex Runarsson is expected to join the Gunners from French club Dijon as a replacement for Emiliano Martinez who has left the Emirates Stadium to join Aston Villa in a region of £20 million.

Emiliano Martinez was keen on a regular first-team football ahead of Bernd Leno but he cannot be trusted for that role by manager Mikel Arteta despite his world-class performance.

It is the wish of the Spanish manager for the Argentine to remain as he was offered a new and improved deal but he turned it down making North London lacking in options of a goalkeeper.

Runar Alex Runarsson and David Raya from Brentford have been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium and it is believed that one of them will make a move with the Italian journalist claiming that the France-based shot-stopper will be favoured for a move.

When asked if Runar Alex Runarsson will be signing for Arsenal Fabrizio Romano replied “Yes, He’ll join Arsenal as Emi Martinez replacement.

Houssem Aouar

English Premier League club Arsenal are not giving up on their bid to land Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar this summer transfer window as they are reported to be preparing another bid.

This is not the first time the Gunners will be submitting a bid for Houssem Aouar as their first bid of cash plus Matteo Guendouzi was rejected by the French Ligue 1 outfit.

Lyon have insisted on taking within the region of £50 million for the youngster but the Gunners cannot meet and are positive that they can still make a deal happen before the summer window ends.

The latest report by Telefoot Chaine claims the North London club will now make an imminent £36.5 million bid for the midfielder with the hope that it could be considered this time around.

The Gunners are now clear front-runners in the bid for Houssem Aouar after beating Man City and Juventus who were reported to be admiring the player and making moves earlier in the summer window.

While Arsenal have already made some additions in this summer transfer window, they are still hoping to strengthen with the signature of Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid to be able to compete for titles.

Former Arsenal players become Merseyside rejects

Former Arsenal stars, Alex Iwobi and Theo Walcott are reportedly set to be offloaded from Merseyside outfit Everton before the end of the summer transfer window.

Both players have not been able to prove their worth at the club as they were both absent in the season’s opener. Alex Iwobi was not listed on the team’s squad for the game.

Everton are hoping to get rid of the two players from their books after shelling out big money to recruit them. They will now need to adjust by forcing some of the high-earning players away in order to gain their financial balance as they are also being affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Alex Iwobi joined the Toffees for a fee of £40 million but is yet to make an impact at Goodison while nothing more can be said of Theo Walcott who joined the club in January 2018 under Sam Allardyce.

However, the slimming down of the team is not peculiar to Everton alone as Arsenal are also making moves to do the same to be able to sanction other deals.

Emi Martinez is the first to leave the Emirates Stadium within the region of £20 million and more players are expected to sign out before October 5.

Alexandre Lacazette

An emerging report claims that Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico Madrid are now desperate to land Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer transfer window and are ready to swap two players to be able to achieve this.

This is not the first time the French striker is being linked with the Madrid team with speculations that the Gunners had offered him for Thomas Partey but it was rejected by the Spanish La Liga club.

Now, it is reported that Atletico Madrid are open to a swap deal but have not included Thomas Partey in the deal. Marca reports that they are offering both Vitolo and Thomas Lemar to the North London club in exchange for the former Lyon striker.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Thomas Lemar is being linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, having failed to make an impact in Atletico Madrid since joining in 2018.

What is unclear is if the Gunners are still interested in offloading Alexandre Lacazette with manager Mikel Arteta already hinting that he wants to keep the player at the club.

However, efforts by the Gunners to land Thomas Partey have been proving difficult with no development on the deal for the past days.

German Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen are reported to preparing to ignite their interest in Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac in order to tempt him back to Germany.

The 27-year-old cannot boast of a starting opportunity in Arsenal’s first-eleven and that is what makes him linked away from the club despite having some time left in his contract with the club.

Although it was recently reported that he is now keen to remain at the Emirates Stadium to fight for his shirt but the will by the Gunners to sell payers to be able to cash in to sanction other players could be influential.

West Ham United are also keen on Sead Kolasinac but have been bounced back by Bayer Leverkusen who are now ahead in the race with Sport Bild via Sport Witness reporting that the Bundesliga club are serious about their interest in the Bosnia international.

It is feared that the Gunners might be tempted to let go of Sead Kolasinac if they receive a luring offer as they can now boast of Kieran Tieran and Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the left-back position.

With claims that the Player is willing to stay with the North London club, the decision will be left for manager Mikel Arteta to make.
