Star confirms he will a Gunner this summer – Midfielder to get stunning deal – £50M star to Arsenal claim made
Gabriel confirms he will stay at Arsenal – Xhaka could get Gunners deal – Arsenal could sign Moussa Diaby in Arsenal news roundup –
Arsenal centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes has confirmed that he will be staying at the Emirates despite interest from Juventus.
Gabriel was a massive part of the squad last season and one of the most impressive performers in that Arsenal shirt for Mikel Arteta
But since the beginning of the transfer window – there has been alot of speculation about whether or not he will be staying at the Emirates – with some big clubs very much interested in a potential deal
However – amid all the speculation that Arsenal could be open to sensationally letting the Brazilian star leave the club – he has come out and revealed that he will not be leaving the club this summer
He told Sky Sports: “It’s always nice to get that recognition but I’m really focused on Arsenal.
“I am very happy here.
“I’ve got a good relationship with my team-mates, and I am fully committed to the project.
“I am convinced that we can achieve a lot.”
Gabriel was brilliant for the club last season, and it is a massive shock to see that he has been linked with a move away from the Gunners
We can see why he may be open – as Arsenal have no Champions League – are well off the pace to challenge for the Premier League title – and are a project that will take some time to get right
However – We can easily say that Arsenal would be fools to let one of the clubs best performers depart the club this summer – as they will probably not have the time to sign an adequate replacement
So the news that he wants to stay is massive for the club
Xhaka to get new deal –
Alan Hutton has claimed Granit Xhaka could be handed a big new deal at Arsenal over the next few months
Xhaka is a player that has a love-hate relationship with the Gunners fans as many believe that he does not deserve to be a regular starter in the club and many believing that he is a solid performer
But there has been alot of speculation regarding his future at the club over the past few months as there has been constant speculation in the media that Jose Mourinho is keen to take him to Italian football – and nearly wrapped up a deal earlier in the summer
However – despite all the speculation and despite all the rumours – the Swiss star has come out and told the ArsenalFCHutton told Football Insider: “Talk about crying out for a new deal.
“He’s been through some ups and downs at that club, it’s been well documented. We’ve seen it all but he’s showed great character to come back. It must have been really difficult for him.
“So he obviously loves the club, the fans are back onside, and Arteta obviously trusts him because he plays. He plays regularly so he’s a main part of that midfield.
“He’s a battler and you need players like that. I think he’s capable of losing his head one or two many times but he’s committed to the club.
“I think that’s somebody that’s looking for a long-term deal to tie him down and he’s letting the club know he’s willing to listen if they’re going to offer him one.
Xhaka brings all the wrong kind of headlines to the club and honestly – ArsenalFCArsenal could sign Diaby –
Kevin Campbell has claimed Arsenal could sign Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby this summer transfer window
Mikel Arteta has some pretty good transfer business this summer and he should be proud of the players that he has managed to bring to the club over the last few weeks
But there are a few more areas of the pitch that he needs to work on and adding another central midfielder will not be on the agenda of the Spanish boss – who has some money left to spend
There has been so many players linked with a move to the club – defenders – midfielders – forwards – and now it seems that Arsenal have been given the green light to try and sign Diaby
Diaby was outstanding for the German club last season, with his 42 matches in all competitions yielding 17 goals and 14 assists.
Recent reports in the media have claimed that owner Stan Kroenke has given the club the green light to make a move and try to sign the man – and now Campbell has claimed that he could be heading to the Emirates
He told Football Insider: “You never really know until they come in through.
“One thing we have do know is that Moussa Diaby is very direct and very skilful. He is a real creator. He can go both way, inside and outside.
“It looks like he tracks back and does the dirty work as well. That is what can be levelled at Pepe. He is good going forward but the other side of his game is lacking intensity.
“Diaby is a good player, but you never really know until they come in. He has been coveted by a few clubs. [Mikel] Arteta and Edu do their homework.”
Many believe that Arsenal needs to sign a big striker – a powerful striker – a man that will give Arteta something different up top – a man that has the ability to hold the ball up and win things in the air – they do not have that
They have a number of players that can play out on the wings – a striker should be next – now a winger
So, even though Diaby is a very good player – he is not the type of star that Arsenal needs to sign right now – but he is obviously a player the club want
