Hello there, Gunner. Here's the latest news from Arsenal.
Arsenal recently met with Barcelona, and two key players were discussed: Gabriel Maghales and Memphis Depay. Barcelona is willing to send Depay to Arsenal in a swap deal involving Gabriel.
With Lacazette and Nketiah potentially leaving, Arteta would be keen to reinforce his attack. Arsenal would benefit from landing Depay, with his extensive experience and potential. But the question is whether a deal for Depay is worth sacrificing Gabriel.
Meanwhile, after rumours surfaced that Arsenal could sign Leicester City's Youri Tielemans for at least £25 million this summer, another rumour surfaced about Arsenal reigniting their interest in James Maddison. According to reports, the Foxes are willing to let Maddison leave for £60 million.
Given how influential the playmaker has been for Leicester, scoring 13 goals and making 9 assists in all competitions, now may be the best time to swoop in for Maddison. However, Kevin Campbell, in an interview with Football Insider, advised his former club to abandon their pursuit of Maddison.
"Tielemans is a player Arsenal needs. He has a different game than Maddison.
"I’m sure Arteta will see him as our type of player.
"For me, Tielemans is the one, and I hope we can get that deal done in the summer.
"Since being signed by manager Brendan Rodgers in 2019, Tielemans has become one of the most sought-after midfielders."
