Poch tells Arsenal ‘he is ready’ to get back in game, Agent send £50 million message to Arsenal about defender, Rodgers sents clear Arsenal message
HERE IS A ROUNDUP OF THE LATEST ARSENAL NEWS FROM ICFOOTBALLNEWS.COM
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has sent Arsenal a clear message about taking over at the Emirates.
Unai Emery was brought to the club just a few seasons ago to take the Arsenal into a new era, a different way of playing from the way Arsene Wenger played the game, and was brought in to get the club challenging for that Premier League title once again.
But despite being given a decent amount of money and despite a number of backings from the Arsenal hierarchy, the Spaniard has failed to deceive over the last 12 months and he finally got the sack, which has delighted many Arsenal fans.
And that has led to speculation in the media that Arsenal are lining up an ambitious move for Rodgers, who has turned this Leicester side into one of the best in the Premier League with his top-class management skills.
But Rodgers insists he is “very happy” to continue at Leicester and questioned why he would leave the Foxes right now, telling the Sky Sports website: “I have a contract here until 2022 and thus far – and I know managers are losing their jobs – but the club have not indicated to me that they are going to sack me.
“I think they’re pretty happy with how we are working and like I said, I’m very happy, and I have no reason to look elsewhere.
“I think logic would tell you – I know in your job it’s not always logical, there’s gossip and speculation – but why would I want to leave Leicester City, at this moment in time.”
Caglar Soyuncu’s agent insists his client will resist interest from other clubs to remain at Leicester, amid interest from Arsenal.
We all know that Unai Emery was desperate to improve the back-line during the summer transfer window and was linked with some of the games very best central defenders, but he failed to get the backing from the board to land the players that he desired.
And in the end he was forced to make a move for WILLIAM SALIBA, who is not ready to make the move to London, KIERAN TIERNEY, and the very unimpressive DAVID LUIZ, who has actually made this Gunners back-line worse.
But despite the fact that Emery has been sacked by the Gunners, there has been some reports in the media which has claimed that a move for Soyuncu could be made by the Arsenal in January, as they need to seriously improve their defence in January.
Leicester City are ahead of Arsenal in the table and are being tipped to secure a place in the top four of the Premier League, and that is partly down to the fact that the Foxes defence has been so good this season, letting in the least amount of goals in the Premier League.
However, his agent Mustafa Dogru is adamant the 23-year-old will remain at the King Power Stadium.
“Caglar now focuses on the success of the team,” Dogru told Turkish radio station Radyospor. “A transfer is neither on his nor the club’s agenda.
“I don’t know what’s going on in the future, but he’s thinking about his achievements at Leicester City and with the national team.”
Arsenal target Mauricio Pochettino is ready to get straight back to work just weeks after being sacked by Tottenham.
Arsenal ended months of speculation in the media by giving Unai Emery the sack after just 18-months in charge of the Gunners, a call that has been backed by many fans, former players and pundits over the past few days.
And that has led to some speculation in the media which has suggested that Arsenal are interested in taking the Argentine to the Emirates, as they are massive fans of the coach and believe he could guide them back to the top of the game.
The 47-year-old has given himself 10 days break back in his native Argentina, but says he has already been made a number of “attractive” offers.
Speaking to Fox Sports Argentina on a visit to his former club Newell’s Old Boys, he said: “There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on.
“For the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham. My aim is to seek the ability to rebuild myself and get my self-motivation back.
“I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future. At my age I don’t need a lot of time to recover. I am open to listen to projects put before me.”
