Agent admits Arsenal interest in Spaniard – Striker perfect signing for Arsenal – Gakpo addresses rumours
The agent of Marco Asensio admits Arsenal contact – Gunners told to sign Tammy Abraham – Cody Gakpo makes transfer announcement in Arsenal news of the day….
PSV Eindhoven star Cody Gakpo says he remains focused on his team but admitted that a move to a Champions League team would be a “dream” amid Arsenal links.
It is no secret in the media Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah could be heading out of Arsenal in the transfer after failing to impress like many had hoped and scored the goals that Mikel Arteta needed.
And that has led to many reports in the media that Arsenal are very much interested in a deal for Gakpo, who is fast becoming one of the most sought after young players in Europe right now
The winger, who mainly operates on the left, has hit 16 goals in all competitions for the Eindhoven club this season, and has also provided 15 assists and his performances is attracting all sorts of interest
Bayern Munich are also said to be keen on the Dutch star – who has recently broken into the national team – but Gakpo doesn’t want the risk of being sat on the bench of a foreign club ahead of November’s World Cup
There is so much speculation about the lad, but now he has come out and addressed all the rumours and admitted that e is just focused on playing on PSV, Gakpo told SunSport: “I try to stay focused on what I am doing now and finishing the season really well, then after that I can focus on something else.
“If I can make a step to a team who plays in the Champions League every season, of course it is my dream. But I still have a contract and there is a new coach coming in — but maybe there comes a club I cannot say no to.
“Maybe they won’t come and I have to stay but for now I just want to keep working on this season”
Look, if Arsenal do decide to make a move and make a serious offer to the Dutch giants, it would be very hard for Gakpo to turn down such a move to a club that is one of the biggest in Europe.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Petit reckons Tammy Abraham wants a return to the Premier League and that he would fit in well at Arsenal.
With Thomas Tuchel keen to add a world class striker to the squad last summer – the Board decided that a move to bring back Romelu Lukaku to the club would help in tehri quest to win back the Premier League title
Many were expecting big things from the powerful Belgian – -especially after he set the Italian League alight – but he has flopped massively and there is now even talk that the Blues are open to the idea of letting him leave in the transfer window
Abraham on the other-hand has become one of the most deadly strikers in Serie A and has netted an impressive 23-goals on 40-games for Jose Mourinhho’s side, but Despite his impressive record in front of goal in Serie A, Petit has claimed that he still wants a move back to the Premier League.
Arsenal have been linked with a move for the former Chelsea star in recent days as it is no secret that Mikel Arteta knows that he will need to add a striker to the attack that can score goals on a regular basis
And Petit had this message for Arsenal, he said: “Abraham reminds me of Emmanuel Adebayor, his physical presence in the penalty area.
“Abraham’s reaction when he arrived at Roma has been brilliant because he’s scored 15 [league] goals and has so many assists, so he’s enjoying his football there.
“I’m pretty sure he wants to come back to England and he would fit perfectly at Arsenal because he’s a different player to Alexandre Lacazette with a different style, different physique and he’s a goalscorer.
“Even at Chelsea he was scoring goals, not as many as he wanted, but he’s 24 years old so he still has a lot to learn.”
Chelsea really believed that they were signing one of the best strikers on the planet and keeping hold of Abraham just did not make sense – it was the right decision to let him leave and see how he develops
Many can doubt why the club let him leave – but no-one could have imagined just how deadly he would become and just how massively Lukaku would flop
At Arsenal, Abraham could flourish right?
And Finally, Marco Asensio’s agents claim Arsenal are keen on signing the striker from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window
In 25 games in all competitions this season, the Spanish international has a respectable record of eight goals and one assist to his credit. But there has been more doubts about his future at the club
Madrid do appreciate just how talented the lad is, and he has been impressive at times, but he ha snot lived upto the expectations of the club and with Madrid looking to freshen up the side, he is a player that they will reportedly be willing to let go.
Arsenal have already made contact with Madrid, reportedly, and enquired as to whether they would be interested in letting the attacker leave the Bernabeu during the last couple of windows.
But despite all the rumours that Arsenal will once again head back in during the summer transfer window to try and tempt the player away from Madrid, it has been claimed that he has made the decision to stay at the Spanish giants.
However, amid all the speculation, Asensio’s representatives revealed that the Gunners and AC Milan have been in contact with them over his availability, They said, reported by Football Italia: “The agents of Real Madrid star Marco Asensio have confirmed interest from Milan and Arsenal.
“We are proud of Milan’s interest. The Rossoneri are an option even if there are offers from a couple of English clubs, including Arsenal.
“We are ready to evaluate every option.”
Look, there will surely be no doubt that money will get spent in the transfer window
Arsenal have always admired Asensio, who has a £200 million release clause in his contract. and if there is a chance to finally swoop in and offer him some sort of deal, then we can see the new owners doing that
