Arsenal! Don’t Don’t Do It

Arsenal! Don’t Don’t Do It

Reports surfacing is that Arsenal are ready to make a shock swoop for Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata in January.

The Manchester United midfielder, who joined Man United for £37.1m, is currently into the final year of his contract and there is no clarity as to whether the club are going to offer the Spaniard a new one.

Though Mata is keen to extend his stay at Old Trafford, the midfielder’s decision might depend on whether he will feature on a regular basis under Jose Mourinho this season.

The midfielder has made just 4 starts in the Premier League this season but he doesn’t seem like an ideal choice for the Gunners at this stage.

The Arsenal manager has previously coached Mata during their time together at Valencia and the Spanish coach is said to be a huge admirer of the midfielder.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is also set to leave the club when his deal expires in the summer, which means the Gunners will be one man short in the midfield department.

Given that Mata is now 30 years old and doesn’t really play in the same position as the Welshman, it is a hard case to justify the transfer move.

The Spanish midfielder was once one of the most exciting prospects in the Premier League and his attributes definitely atone his qualities.

Mata is predominantly used as a right-winger or a right-midfielder and the Gunners are currently well equipped in these positions.

The likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alex Iwobi, Danny Welbeck and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are all players who currently ply their trade up front for Arsenal.

All these players are also much younger and have been more prolific than the Spaniard in recent times. This means that Unai Emery won’t really be receiving an upgrade in the position.

Though Mata is capable of playing as a central attacking midfielder, Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is currently playing some of his best football under Unai Emery this season.

The German has never looked better in an Arsenal kit and is flourishing as the No.10 that everyone wants him to be.

Bringing Mata in would only disrupt the German’s flow and momentum.

Mata is definitely talented and one of the most technically gifted players out there but what Arsenal need at this moment are game-changers in their squad.

Young stars who possess great potential are required to take the Gunners back to the top and that is why Unai Emery should look elsewhere and forget about Mata.

Peter Crouch slams Arsenal for letting this midfielder leave for free

Former Burnley striker, Peter Crouch has come hard on Arsenal FC for letting Wales international and midfielder, Aaron Ramsey leave for free.

Ramsey will move to Italian side Juventus for free at the end of the season after a decade at Arsenal.

The Welsh midfielder has been instrumental for the Gunners this season, scoring goals and creating assists when needed.

However, Peter Crouch in a statement disclosed it is sad that Arsenal will lose Ramsey for nothing.

“It’s another week that has shown the error of their ways,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.
“I have written a couple of times this season about Aaron Ramsey and you will know my position.

“I found it madness they were not prepared to offer him another deal and I can’t believe they are losing him to Juventus for free.

“Ramsey is quality. He is the type of footballer that should cost someone £40m in a transfer fee alone.

“If Arsenal want to replace him like-for-like, that is the type of investment they will need to make, along with top-end wages.

“They will find it is no straightforward task.
“For Arsenal to make the same mistake so soon after losing Alexis Sanchez has left me scratching my head. It was avoidable.”

Unai Emery Backs Arsenal For Europa League Glory

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has thrown his weight behind his team in the quest to win the Europa League this season.

The Spanish tactician knows all about winning the competition after winning it for three successive seasons while he was at Spanish La Liga club Sevilla.

Unai Emery and his players booked their spot in the quarterfinals after beating Rennes 3-0 at home thereby advancing to the next stage via a 4-3 aggregate win with Napoli waiting in the wings.

In his post-match thoughts, Unai Emery told reporters that his players can do something special in the Europa League this season.

Arsenal can qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League or by finishing in fourth spot at least at the end of this Premier League season.

The Gunners took a big step towards realising their target of winning the Europa League with the 3-0 victory over Rennes.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the star of the show as he scored twice and also provided an assist for the Gunners.

He scored the first goal within the first five minutes before providing the second goal for the impressive Ainslay Maitland-Niles.

Aubameyang added a third goal in the 72ND minute to propel the Gunners into the next stage of the competition.

Arsenal Eyeing £25m Summer Move For Scottish Left-back

Arsenal are reportedly plotting a summer move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney.

The Gunners want to strengthen their squad with a new left-back and the £25m-rated Tierney is being considered by the North Londoners.

Arsenal will have to contend with the threat of German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in their quest to sign the highly rated Kieran Tierney.

The interest of Borussia Dortmund in Tierney was revealed by popular media outlet The Sun.

It was also revealed that fellow Premier League side Leicester City are also keen on a transfer for the Scottish international left-back when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers wants to sign Tierney whom he worked with at Scottish champions Celtic.

The Foxes have an exciting first choice left-back in Ben Chilwell but the Three Lions of England defender is courting interest from Premier League champions Manchester City and Kieran Tierney could be his replacement at the King Power Stadium.

Kieran Tierney was part of the Celtic team that won a treble in each of the last two seasons under Brendan Rodgers.

Former Liverpool and Swansea City manager Rodgers left Celtic to take up the managerial job at Leicester City at the end of last month.

He will have to see off Arsenal for the right to sign the aforementioned Tierney.

Arsenal and manager Unai Emery have identified a new left-back as a top priority ahead of this summer’s transfer window.
