Arsenal midfielder wanted by Napoli

Torreira to Napoli?


Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira has reportedly emerged as a target for Italian side Napoli ahead of the winter transfer window.

Torreira has struggled for regular gametime in the Premier League this term and he has managed just four starts with two of them resulting after the recent snub of Granit Xhaka.

According to Calciomercato, the Uruguay international is currently unsettled at the Capital outfit, considering he has yet to adapt to the style of living in England.

It is added that he is eager to make the return to the Serie A and Napoli could potentially compete with AC Milan for his services when the transfer window reopens.

The Gunners snubbed the chance to sell Torreira during the summer transfer window and they could follow the same trend at the turn of the year, particularly with Xhaka tipped to part ways with the club.

Xhaka has not featured for the north London giants since his altercation with the fans during a game against Crystal Palace and reports indicate that he may have already made his final appearance for the club.

Wenger: expected to one day return to football management


Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he has received multiple offers from Premier League sides, but his love of the Gunners has prevented him so far making a move to another English club. Wenger has also revealed he hopes to one day return to football, but remains patient for the time being.

Wenger was replaced by Unai Emery in 2018 after a long search to find a successor for the Frenchman. The move came as a surprise for many, and Arsene Wenger admits that he misses the day to day toil of Premier League management.

“I’m an Arsenal man and after that I’m a professional. I can’t stop working,” said Wenger.

“I decided to move out of the Premier League because I am too linked with Arsenal. I had opportunities to work in England but I turned them down.

“I don’t want to tell you [which clubs] because there are people in charge and it would unfair to them.

“The hunger to play football, win games, I play charity games still. The hunger is completely there, I don’t think you lose the desire to win and that bitterness when you lose a football game.”

Still, the England international made the difference by winning the penalty which led to the opening goal and the Blues eventually sealed a 2-0 triumph over Graham Potter’s side.

Speaking in the Match of the Day programme, Wright praised the young attacker, who has taken his chance under Frank Lampard, he told: “He’s taken the opportunity, Frank’s shown a lot of faith in him. 

“They did create a lot of chances today, I thought they wasted a few of the chances. But Mason Mount, he’s somebody that is making a difference, especially in this area of the field.”

Chelsea‘s win over Brighton sees them on 11 points after seven league games. They are presently sitting in the sixth position but one of Arsenal or Manchester United could leapfrog them after the Monday night clash.

Arsenal to reject permanent transfer offer for Nketiah


Championship leaders Leeds United are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for Eddie Nketiah as Arsenal hold no desire to part ways with their graduate.

The England Under-21 international was hugely impressive during the club’s pre-season tour of the United States but he was still loaned out to the Peacocks amid his insistence to play regular first-team football.

Eddie has since shined for Marcelo Bielsa‘s side with four goals from six appearances in all competitions and this has included a couple of late league strikes against Brentford and Barnsley.

According to The Athletic, the Championship outfit have been impressed with the showing of their loanee and they could seek to pursue him on a permanent basis at the turn of the year.

However, their chances of sealing his services remain non-existent with Unai Emery‘s side holding no interest whatsoever in sanctioning the sale of the young marksman.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are presently the first-choice striking options at Arsenal but the latter is currently sidelined with an ankle problem until October.

Arsenal confirm new long-term contract for young midfielder


News » Premier League news » Arsenal news


Arsenal have announced that young midfielder Joe Willock has been handed with a new long-term contract following his impressive showing for the club this season.

The England youth international had a promising pre-season where he was regularly deployed at the heart of the midfield and his performances were sufficient enough to hand him starts in the opening three league games.

In a statement released on the club’s official website, it has now been confirmed that the youngster has been rewarded with a new and improved contract, although the length of the deal remains undisclosed.

Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi seem to have cemented two places in the centre of the park and Willock will certainly face competition for the third midfield role in the presence of Lucas Torreira and Dani Ceballos.

Arsenal will be aiming to secure their first win in three matches when they face Watford on the road this weekend. The Gunners are currently just outside of the top four on goal difference.

Jamie Carragher sends Arsenal warning to Liverpool boss

Carragher believes Arsenal can compete with Liverpool this weekend
Football Transfer Centre


Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is concerned with the high defensive line from the Reds as they prepare to host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are currently top of the table with the perfect tally of six points after the opening two games and this has only been replicated by the Gunners, who are just behind them on goal difference.

The Reds have had the better of the Gunners in the last three meetings at Anfield where they have beaten them 3-1, 4-0 and 5-1 respectively but Carragher anticipates a much challenging contest this time around.

While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are bound to test the Gunners’ defensive resolve, Carragher is also concerned with the Reds’ high line against the pace and clinicalness of the Gunners’ attack.

Speaking on the Reds’ defensive shape, he told Sky Sports: “I don’t like it and I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at different times this season to get away with it.”

The former England international added that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe are bound to offer a different challenge to the Reds backline, which has regularly sought to play the offside trap.
