Arsenal To Challenge Five Clubs For Potential Free Transfer Signing

Arsenal will need to contend with the interests of five other European clubs in the race to sign FC Porto midfielder Hector Herrera on a free transfer when his contract with the Portuguese champions expires this summer.

He has six months to go on his FC Porto contract.

Hector Herrera is on the verge of becoming a free agent in the summer with no new contract talks in sight.

The Mexican international star is an important part of the FC Porto squad that has been impressive in both the Portuguese top flight and the Champions League this season.

A lot of clubs are interested in his signature with reports claiming that Italian capital club AS Roma tried to sign him this month after offering him a four-year contract.

According to popular Italian transfer news portal TuttoMercatoWeb, Arsenal and five others would like to sign Hector Herrera on a free transfer this summer.

The Gunners will have to face the threat from fellow Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers as well as two Spanish La Liga sides and two Italian Serie A clubs.

Spanish outfits Atletico Madrid and Sevilla are keen on the 70-cap Mexican international player.

Italian sides AS Roma and Inter Milan are also interested.

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.

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.
