Arsenal midfield star emerged as January transfer target for Juventus

Italy champions Juventus are reportedly interested in signing Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey in the January transfer window.

Ramsey’s current Arsenal contract will expire at the end of the season and if a pre-contract agreement is made the Italian giants can sign him for free in the New Year.

As it stands, the possibility of the Wales international penning down a new deal at the Emirates Stadium look completely off the table.

The bone of contention is that, Ramsey currently command wages up to £250,000 a week, something the Gunners are no longer interested in paying for him.

Juventus who have lifted the Serie A titles in the last seven consecutive years, are also topping the league with six points clear and the Old Lady’s manager Massimiliano Allegri is a huge fan of the Welshman.

Ramsey has also emerged as a transfer target for both Liverpool and Chelsea who are willing to make a move by the of the season, when he becomes a free agent.

After signing for the Gunners in 2008, Ramsey is Arsenal’s current longest serving player at Arsenal at the moment. It’s expected that the club should honour their star player and reward him with an improved contract, but that look unrealistic with both parties standing on their grounds.

Arsenal Manager Reveals How He Almost Signed Striker At PSG

Arsenal Manager Reveals How He Almost Signed Striker At PSG

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that striker Alexandre Lacazette was a transfer target for French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) while he was their manager.

The Spanish tactician further stated that it was difficult for Lacazette to secure a move from Olympique Lyon to PSG.

Unai Emery spoke about the 27-year-old ahead of the Gunners’ upcoming Premier League clash at home to Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

According to the former Sevilla and Valencia boss, it is historically difficult for a Lyon player to move to PSG and vice-versa.

Alexandre Lacazette sealed his transfer to Arsenal last summer after the North Londoners paid a then club record fee of around £46.5m to Lyon for his services.

He moved to Arsenal after his transfer to Spain with Atletico Madrid fell through.

The French international star started life with the Gunners like a house on fire netting in the opening minutes of his Arsenal debut against Leicester City on the opening day of last season’s Premier League campaign.

He went on to score eight goals in his first 15 games for the club and that preceded a wretched scoreless run of just one goal in 15 matches.

The poor run prompted the club to break their transfer record for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal paid £57m for the Gabonese striker who emerged as the first-choice striker ahead of Lacazette under former manager Arsene Wenger.

The advent of Unai Emery as the new Arsenal manager in the summer has led to the transformation of Lacazette as the Gunners’ first choice while Aubameyang has been forced to play on the left wing.

Arsenal Defender In Surprise Injury Return Ahead Of Leicester City Clash

Arsenal defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos has surprisingly made a quicker than expected recovery for the Gunners ahead of their league game against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The 30-year-old was initially expected to sit out the game as a result of the ankle injury he sustained while he was with the Greek national team during the recently concluded international break.

As a result of the ankle problem, Sokratis was replaced by Georgios Tzavellas at the start of the second half in the 2-0 loss to Finland in what was a UEFA Nations League clash.

The scoreline was goalless before the former Borussia Dortmund centre back left the pitch but the Finnish team went on to score two second half goals to secure the three points at stake in front of their fans.

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery spoke about Sokratis Papasthathopoulos and his ankle injury during his pre-match press conference on Thursday afternoon ahead of the Leicester City game.

The Spanish tactician revealed that he would be difficult for him to be fit for the game.

Sokratis, however, gave Arsenal fans something to shout about after stating that he has made a quicker than expected recovery from the ankle injury via his official Instagram account.

He’s expected to still play second fiddle to the centre back partnership of Rob Holding and German World Cup winner Shkrodan Mustafi despite his injury recovery.

The duo of Holding and Mustafi have started the last two league games for Arsenal with just one goal conceded.
