£250,000-a-week star ‘will love playing for Howe’, Newcastle clear to sign up Premier League star, Will Brazilian be joining Toon? Father has massive transfer update

Hazard claim made, Martinelli transfer update given and Van De Beek told to leave in Newcastle United roundup…

Gabriel Martinelli will not be leaving Arsenal in the January transfer window, his father has admitted

Regarded as the future at the Emirates, Martinelli is a player that most Gunners fans are hoping develops into the player that he is being tipped to become

The 20-year-old is struggling for regular minutes under Mikel Arteta and there had been suggestions that he would leave the club in the coming transfer window in order to get some more game time

A number of clubs in Europe are said to be keen with loans being mooted, including Newcastle, but no deal will be done over the winter as Martinelli endeavours to prove his worth at Emirates Stadium.

Reacting to the rumours with Yahoo, Martinelli’s father Joao said: “Since he came back from an injury, he’s been playing a lot less than he would have liked.

“There has been some talk of proposals from Europe, but Arsenal have already warned that they will not release him.

“People like him a lot. Not only for what he does when he plays, but also for his dedication. Martinelli is almost always the first to arrive for training and the last to leave.”

Martinelli suffered a serious knee injury in June 2020 that kept him out of action for the best part of six months. He was eased back into the Gunners fold upon his return and has suffered another couple of knocks since.


Martinelli has so much potential that is being wasted on that Arsenal bench, and the fact he wants to stay, could be a bad decision. At Newcastle he could have got the game time that he is looking for

The Toon will be doing alot of business, so this news will come as a massive blow to their chances of getting a few loan deals done in January

Noel Whelan has claimed Manchester United star and Newcastle United target Donny van de Beek “needs to get out now” for the good of his career.

Van De Beek was a big money buy in the summer transfer window after establishing himself as one of the most creative players in Europe with Ajax, but since his move to Manchester, he has struggled to nail down a regular spot in the side.

He cannot get any game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he lacking confidence and is keen for a move away, which has alerted a number of clubs, including Arsenal Everton Newcastle and Wolves

Now amid the speculation, Whelan insisted the midfielder has looked “average at best” during his limited opportunities in the Man United XI.

“It’s looking very bleak for him at the minute,” he told Football Insider.

“I think he needs to get out now because he’s not getting an opportunity at all.

“When he has come on, he’s been average at best – we’ve not seen the player that Man United bought and other teams wanted.

“I don’t think they’ve gotten the best out of him, at all.

“Getting him out of the club and letting him progress his career is probably in the interest of both parties.

“The only use he has at the moment is for cup competitions. That isn’t enough for a player at his age.

“I think United could be willing to let him go on a permanent deal to get him off the wage bill.”

Look, There is no doubt that Van De Beek is a classy player that should be playing, so If United do not want him and the Toon make the right offer, they should take him to the North

Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has claimed that Real Madrid star Eden Hazard “would love” to play for Newcastle United’s new boss Eddie Howe.

Hazard spent seven years in the Premier League at Chelsea between 2012 and 2019 and developed into one of the very best attackers in world football, which earned him a mega money move to Real Madrid

However, that move has not worked out and the superstar has struggled to make any sort of impact at the Bernabeu, and He has only been able to play 40 times in La Liga since the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

Newcastle United‘s Saudi-led takeover was completed last month and they have been linked with Hazard, and Wilshere has told talkSPORT that Hazard would love playing for Newcastle’s new boss:

“He was great with me [at Bournemouth], because it was tough for me there because I was coming from a big club,” Wilshere said.

“I stepped into a group that had been together since they were in League One, they were all friends. They were all great with me, but Eddie made sure they were. He was great with me.

“Eden Hazard is another level, but I think Eden would love playing for a manager like Eddie Howe [at Newcastle]. He’s the type of manager you want to play for.

“I worked with him at a club that I see now are quite similar to Newcastle – not in terms of the size of the club, but in terms of the players,’ the ex-England international said.

“Newcastle have got a few ex-Bournemouth players and that is what Eddie does, he gets the best out of those types of players, gets them going and he gets the fans on side.

“He’s a great manager. I think he deserves a chance. If he goes in and does really well, in a few years they could be pushing the top six, which I think he can do.

“When I played under him at Bournemouth we arguably had a worse squad and we finished ninth, so he can definitely do that.

“It’s down to him when he gets that chance to take them to the next level.”
