Arsenal should sign Spanish maestro, Arsenal can sign Brazilian for just £77 million, Gunners fans want ex-star resigned in summer
Here is a roundup of the latest Arsenal news, gossip and transfer news from icfootballnews.com over the past 24 hours guys.
strong>Mikel Arteta should go out and spend some serious money on trying to sign Thiago from Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window.
Arsenal may have improved the back-line during the January transfer window, but they failed to acquire the type of players that would make a serious impact in the premier League, and once again, they are struggling to keep clean sheets.
Arsenal know they need to start spending the big money and signing the kind of world class players that their rivals are currently acquiring if they have a chance of picking up the Premier League in the next couple of seasons, and Thiago should be on the shopping list.
Reports have suggested the Spanish midfielder could leave Bayern Munich in the summer as he will be entering the final 12 months of his contract, and with contract talks appearing to have stalled, he could be heading out the door for a serious shake-up ay Bayern.
Manchester United have long been linked with the hard-working midfielder and they reportedly tried to sign him from Barcelona in 2013, but with Arsenal seeking to ad a box-to-box midfielder like him, Mikel Arteta would be smart to make a move and try to wrap up a deal.
Thiago is well renowned for his ability both on and off the ball and is one of the best midfielders in the world. and there are certainly comparisons with Cesc Fabregas in the way he plays and dictates the tempo in games.
Former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola is a big reason why Thiago is at Bayern Munich as he was the only player he wanted the club to sign.
He said: “I spoke to the club (Bayern) about my concept and told them why I want Thiago. He is the only player I want. It’ll be him or no one.”
Reports have claimed Arsenal have been given the opportunity to wrap up a transfer deal for Philippe Coutinho at a bargain price.
There has been a lot of speculation in the media that Mesut Ozil could be leaving the club in the next couple of windows after failing to impress boss Mikel Arteta, meaning the Gunners will need to add a ready-made creative superstar to the club like Coutinho.
Coutinho made a name for himself at Liverpool as one of the best creative midfielders in the game and Barcelona were determined to acquire his services as the long-term replacement for Andreas Iniesta.
However, his move to the Camp Nou has not gone down as well as many had hoped and after the arrival of Antoine Griezmann, he has fallen well down the pecking order, meaning the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in a potential deal.
And according to reports on the Daily Express website, Arsenal will be able to delve into their transfer kitty at the end of the season and wrap up a potential deal for Coutinho at an asking price of just £77 million.
Reports suggest that Barcelona are seeking to offload a number of stars in the summer window in order to revamp their aging squad, and Coutinho is a big name that they can get rid of at a very reasonable asking price.
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter and urged the club to make a move to re-sign Juventus ace Aaron Ramsey.
Ramsey was in talks over a new deal for months, but simply could not come to some sort of agreement at the club as very high wages, and rumours he would not be part of Unai Emery’s plans at the Emirates, meant he was able to agree a pre-contract agreement with Juventus in January.
And he announced that he would be making that big move to Juventus, after agreeing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Champions for a wage of around £325,000-a-week.
He spent 11 years with the north London club after joining the Gunners as a teenager from Cardiff and, will go down in history as one of the club’s greatest midfielders having scored two FA Cup final winning goals.
But reports on Tuttosport, via Calciomercato, suggests Ramsey’s future is already in doubt and that he could leave after just one season, which has led to some fans taking to social media to urge the club to re-sign their former star.
I'd say let's go back for Ramsey, he's obviously not Juve's kind of player and he loves Arsenal.
