Arsenal have been enjoying their victory in the final of the FA Cup against Chelsea, however, their backroom team must be back to work as they don’t have much time to flex their muscles in the transfer market. Hence, keeping up with the reports we bring to you the latest transfer rumours regarding the Gunners.
The Gunner’s biggest target of the summer transfer window might have just been already achieved. They were reportedly keen on tying down their captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a long term deal with his current contract winding up at the end of the next season.
And reports have now claimed that the Gabon international might has agreed to a 3-years-long new deal at the Emirates which will see him earning £250,000-a-week of a base salary and an additional performance based bonuses with clauses regarding Arsenal qualifying for the Champions League and if he wins the Premier League Golden boot in any of the next three seasons.
Arsenal seems committed to signing Sporting’s highly-rated youngster Joelson Fernandes. The Gunners have submitted two bids for the 17-year-old and have had both of them rejected. However, as per reports, Gunners are adamant on their pursuit of Joelson, who has been regarded as the “Next Cristiano Ronaldo” by many in Portugal.
Arsenal’s pursuit of Atlético Madrid star Thomas Partey doesn’t look like coming to an end anytime soon. Arsenal have made it clear that they don’t want to pay his release clause and are instead looking at more creative ways of getting the deal over the line by offering a £25 million plus Matteo Guendouzi. However, Gunners bid was turned down by Atletico and it is now being reported that the LaLiga outfit is adamant on getting Partey’s release clause paid as they won’t entertain even a bid of £35 million plus Matteo Guendouzi.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles, one of Arsenal’s brightest academy products, has been told that he will be allowed to move this summer. The 22-year-old has been looking for a move away in a bid to get more and consistent game time in his favoured midfield role rather than playing a bit and piece role at Arsenal.
