Arsenal FC are the front runners to sign Borussia Monchengladbach rebel Denis Zakaria who has insisted that he wants to leave the club this summer and search for greener pastures elsewhere. Reports have shown that the player prefers to play for Arsenal because they are his boyhood fan club.
However, with the signing of Sambi Lokonga and Granit Xhaka’s U-turn from Tom transfer rumors, it is less probable for Arsenal to bid for a player who has a familiar profile in the current. Arsenal have already moved on from the search for a defensive midfielder and are currently invested in searching for an attacking midfielder.
The reason as to why Arsenal sold Joe Willock to Newcastle United has been revealed. It has been rumored that Arsenal were intending to raise funds that will facilitate the signing of either Martin Odegaard or James Maddison.
Joe Willock will join Newcastle United next after the two clubs agreed on a principle fee for the player. Many fans rued the transfer move, claiming that Arsenal would have benefited from Willock’s prolific form but apparently Mikel Arteta had other plans. It is a major risk that Arsenal have made but maybe it is for the greater good of the club.
Former Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has said that Mikel Arteta has achieved a lot since he took over Arsenal a couple of years ago. He said that Arteta is taking the necessary strides to improve the squad and stem out the weaknesses by making sensible signings. “Arsenal now have an identity,” he said.
