Arsenal bound star ‘as good as any in Premier League’ Arteta has update after offer made for Brazilian, Vlahovic ignoring club announces CEO
Arsenal get Vlahovic boost, Arsenal sent message about Turner and Arteta has update after Melo offer in Arsenal roundup…
Arsenal transfer target Matt Turner is as good as any goalkeeper in the Premier League, according to his coach Kevin Hitchcock
Bernd Leno is understandably keen on playing more football after being usurped as Arsenal’s No 1 by Aaron Ramsdale, and that has led to many reports in the media which have suggested that he could leave the club this transfer window
And if the German was to leave, Turner appears to be their top target to replace him, with reports suggesting that the Gunners board have already made an offer to bring him to the Premier League.
And It could be a masterstroke from Mikel Arteta if Hitchcock’s comments are anything to go by, Speaking on a feature produced by NBC Sports Boston, Hitchcock has no doubt Turner has the quality to not only play in the Premier League, but also match the performances of each top goalkeeper in the division.
“Like I said to the people here, he can play Premier League easily,” Hitchcock said.
“I’ve worked with a lot of top Premier League goalkeepers, and he’s up there with the top three I’ve worked with.
“I know at this moment, he is as good as any top Premier League goalkeeper.”
Ramsdale is a brilliant stopper that is easily the number one at the Emirates, so the Gunners do not need to splash alot of cash and bring in somebody that could upset the dynamics at the Emirates
Turner will have alot to prove at the club, but he has been impressing and the Gunners clearly see something in him which will make them believe he is the ideal man to replace Leno if he leaves the club
This will be a massive step up though, and surely a dream move for the man to make if it happens
Mikel Arteta is unsure if Arsenal will be able bring in new signings before the January transfer window closes, with reports they have agreed personal terms with Arthur Melo
It is no secret that Mikel Arteta NEEDS to strengthen his Arsenal squad over the course of the transfer window as a number of injuries and Covid-19 outbreaks have devastated his Gunners squad.
That has led to many reports that he will look to improve the squad and add another defender, midfielder and striker to the attack in order to keep in that chase to get back inside the top sour spots
The Gunners have also held talks with Arthur’s agent and are keen to sign the 25-year-old on loan before the January transfer window closes.
Arthur has already agreed personal terms, according to reports, with Arsenal and wants to make the move to the Premier League for the rest of the season in order to test himself in English football and try to reignite his career.
Juventus, however, have been reluctant to give the deal the green light without bringing in a replacement.
But speaking after the goalless draw with Burnley on Sunday, Arteta indicated the club are no closer to making additions to the squad.
‘In this market things are complicated,’ Arteta told BBC
He added in his post-match press conference: ‘Well we are certainly trying but I don’t know if we are going to be able to do it. Let’s see.
‘It was what we planned but the market is difficult. It’s a lot to manage and we have to make the right decisions with players that we believe are going to help us.’
All these top players linked with a move to the Emirates and so many fans getting excited about possible deals, but again, Arsenal just take too long and end up missing out
Dusan Vlahovic is reportedly ignoring Fiorentina’s calls after Arsenal’s reported £50.1million bid for the player.
Now it is no secret that Mikel Arteta needs to add a new striker to that attack of his as he does not have the squad to get back inside those Champions League places by the end of the seasons
Fans know all the troubles that Arteta is having with his strikers, and that has led to many reports in the media that a deal for Vlahovic is the Gunners number one priority this window.
The big striker is regarded as one of the best in Europe right now and is currently the top scorer in Seria A, with his performances alerting a number of top clubs to his services
Now after reports the Gunners submitted a £50 million offer to get a transfer deal done, Viola’s CEO Joe Barrone has accused Vlahovic and his representatives of refusing contact with him and the club.
Barone told DAZN: “We’ve not received any official bid for Vlahovic as things stand.
“We’re open to discuss and negotiate – but we want Vlahovic and his agent to be clear on the future, as they’re not answering. We need to talk about it.
“[We want] Clarity from the player and his entourage. Fiorentina have a future, a group, a support and a city that must focus on this season
“I would like to talk about Fiorentina because Fiorentina plays and I want to talk about the group that deserves everything that is happening, starting with the club.
“Every day we talk about Vlahovic. On this issue Fiorentina has not received any offers. We are open to everything but we want clarity.”
Vlahovic is a classy player that has already netted an impressive 17 goals, and he would be a seriously brilliant signing for Arsenal if they are able to get a deal done
