Arsenal: Loanee Impresses Despite Loss, Lautaro Agrees New Deal, New Transfer Target

Lautaro Martinez

The hopes of Arsenal signing Lautaro Martinez in the next transfer window have completely been shuttered after it was reported that Inter Milan and the Argentinian player have agreed on a new long-term contract deal. Inter Milan will make the official announcement soon but inside sources have confirmed that all the paperwork have been signed and the contract extension deal has already been sealed.

During the last transfer window, Arsenal were heavily linked with the Argentinian player as the Gunners sought to find the replacement of Alexander Lacazette whose contract is due to expire at the end of this season. A number of clubs had shown interest in the French striker but no agreement had ever been reached to sign him. With Lautaro Martinez far from their reach, Arsenal will be forced to scout for another number 9 striker.

Nao Lang

Arsenal have once again been linked with an Asian player by the name of Nao Lang. Nao Lang plays for German club Bayer Leverkusen and he has proven to be a real menace in the frontline in the last couple of seasons. At the young age of 22, he already scored 30 goals for the German club in the past two seasons.

Rumors have however mentioned that Arsenal is considering a swap deal so that the asking price for the Japanese player is lowered. No player has been mentioned in the potential swap deal, but inside sources have asserted that Eddie Nketiah could be the sacrificial lamb in the deal.

Miguel Azeez

Arsenal’s Academy graduate Miguel Azeez is still making headlines, especially after making an entertaining debut for Portsmouth in their 2-1 loss to Coventry. Portsmouth coach Mark Cowley said that he was very impressed by Azeez despite the loss. He said that Azeez showed a lot of rigor and passion as well as a strong commitment throughout the game.
