Arsenal express interest in Spaniard, Agent tells Arsenal move could happen, Auba message sent and midfielder reveals why he has to leave Gunners
Arsenal express Isco interest, Auba message sent, Guendouzi opens up on exit and agent makes Yazici claim in Arsenal roundup…
French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has opened up and revealed why he had to leave Arsenal on-loan.
Before the arrival of current boss Mikel Arteta, Guendouzi was being tipped to become a real star for this Arsenal side after putting in some stunning performances in that Gunners shirt, and many people were excited about his potential.
But after developing a reputation for being a hot-head, he fell out with Mikel Arteta, and in the end the Arsenal boss decided to banish the Frenchman from his first-team, and now he currently plays for Hertha Berlin.
Now he has opened up and revealed just why he needed to leave the Gunners, claiming that he needed to have “fun” while playing and that is exactly what he is being offered at his current loan team, Hertha Berlin.
“I needed to have fun on the pitch, to regain confidence and that’s what Hertha offers me. It really is a choice I made,” the Gunners loanee told Telefoot via Goal.com
“In the space of two seasons I have played more than 80 games with Arsenal.
“When you play less, you start to think and it hurts”
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has lost none of his hunger for goals despite signing a “humungous” contract at Arsenal, says Alan Smith.
Regarded as one of the finest strikers in the game, Arsenal managed to convince Auba that he needed to stay at the Emirates for a few more years and gave him the kind of contract that makes him one of the highest paid players in the game,
However, since signing that contract, He has found the target just four times across all competitions in 2020-21, with only two of those coming in the Premier League, and there are many out there that firmly believe he has lost the hunger to score goals.
But after seeing the Gabon star struggle this season, Smith has opened up and claimed that the striker has lost none of his hunger for goals despite signing a “humungous” contract
The former Gunners striker told the Evening Standard: “The fact that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hasn’t scored from open play in the league since the opening day does tend to point in a worrying direction.
“If one of the world’s best finishers can’t find the net in seven games, what does that say about the team as a whole? Well, it says for a start that the number of chances created has dropped. The Gunners don’t carve out the opportunities of old.
“In fairness, that’s bound to happen when a coach is concentrating on organisation and solidity, when he’s determined to eradicate flimsy defending in favour of a disciplined approach that gives little away.
“Some say he is wasted on the left, but I can’t agree with that when he has shone so brightly from that position in the past.
“Mind you, his success from that flank partly depends on the centre-forward’s input and Alexandre Lacazette has fallen into a slump that’s not helping. It might be time to move the captain inside.
“As for the accusation Aubameyang has lost his hunger after signing that humongous contract, I’m not having that. The 31-year-old doesn’t seem the type to coast along. He likes scoring too much to be going through the motions.
“A lack of creativity doesn’t help his cause, a shortfall that leads to Arsenal struggling against sides adopting a low block. Leeds, however, don’t go near that tactic, with Bielsa insisting on attacking verve. As a result, this might be a day for Auba’s huge grin.”
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lille midfielder Yusuf Yazici, and he agent has revealed he is honored to be linked with the Gunners
It is no secret that Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is eager to spend some money in the coming transfer windows and add a bit more creativity to the side after seeing his side struggle to score the goals this season.
And that has led to alot of speculation that in the January window, Arteta will be backed in order to add a bit more quality to his midfield, and there has been some reports suggesting that Yazici is on the shopping list.
The Turkish midfielder has been one of the top stars at Lille this season, hitting two hat-tricks in the Europa League already in this campaign, and He has been likened to Mesut Ozil for his creativity.
Now, amid all the speculation, His agent, Adem Cebeci says that the player is happy at his current team, but added that Lille would be open to selling him for a profit.
“In Lille, he works with the best,” Cebeci told Turkish outlet Demiroren.
“Yusuf feels right at home here to work on his weaknesses – speed and speed.
“They want to use his full potential and sell him to even bigger clubs for a lot of money.
“We are honoured that big clubs have had an eye on him.”
Arsenal have reportedly expressed their interest in Real Madrid’s Isco after he told Real Madrid he wants out
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is a man that knows that he needs to keep adding to this squad in the coming windows and add players to the side that will have an immediate impact on results for the club.
Arteta has seen his Arsenal side already lose four games in the Premier League this season and is not seeing the type of goal-return that he would have likes, leading to the Spaniard even admitting that he is in need of adding some more creativity to the squad.
That has led to more reports in the media that long-term transfer target Isco is back on the shopping list of Arsenal, who have been chasing the Spaniard for the last four years now but have not been able to get a transfer deal done.
However, that may all be set to chance, as Marca reports Isco has already informed Real of his desire to leave in the coming transfer window, with the reports adding that the Spanish giants are willing to sell for around £45million.
Now reports suggest that Arsenal are ready to try and wrap up a transfer deal in the January window and have now expressed an interest in trying to secure a transfer deal for Isco, although that £45 million asking price may be a bit high for their liking.
Arsenal done some very good business in the transfer window, but they are lacking that Isco-type player in midfield, so if there is really a chance to get the Spaniard signed up and add a bit more creativity to the side, then the Gunners should get this one done.
