Arsenal: Hijack Attempts Reported in Latest Transfer Deal, Arteta’s Chance to Analyze Target

Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal will have to be a little more careful about what they disclose to the media because it seems that other clubs are developing the habit of trying to hijack their transfers. Recently, Chelsea snatched Raphinha under Edu Gasper’s nose after Todd Boehly made an agreement with Leeds United for a €60 Million transfer fee hours before Arsenal presented their second bid. Now, it has been revealed that three other clubs were trying to hijack Arsenal’s transfer move on Gabriel Jesus in the last meeting but luckily for them the Brazilian had already made up his mind about joining Arsenal.

There is still another target out there that Arsenal are interested in- Youri Tielemans, but talks for him are progressing slowly. If Arsenal are to ensure that they land the midfielder this summer, they have to be very cautious of what they let other clubs know about their deal with the midfielder.

Tyler Adams

Mikel Arteta has now been presented the perfect chance to monitor the perfomance of USA international Tyler Adams who has secured a move to Leeds United. Jesse Marsh has been credited for pushing for the deal to be completed since he wanted the right back to reinforce the defensive line up ahead of next season. As for Arteta, the defender has been on Arsenal’s radar for quite a while and with Cedric’s contract expected to expire at the end of next season, Tyler Adams could be touted as the perfect replacement.

Tyler Adams has a decent track record in the Bundesliga and many are hoping that the same will be reflected in the EPL. No buy back clause has been attached to his contract which means that it will be fairly easy to sign him next season if Arteta is satisfied with the impact the player can make at the club.
