Arsenal’s summer exodus could be set to continue with defender Sead Kolasinac being eyed by a number of European clubs. That could be set to continue with Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Willian, Alexandre Lacazette and even PierreEmerick Aubameyang having been linked with a move away from Arsenal this summer. Another candidate for departure is full-back Kolasinac. Signed from Schalke 04 on a free transfer in 2017, Kolasinac has gone on to make 113 appearances for Arsenal but fell out of favour under Mikel Arteta. There, Kolasinac made 17 Bundesliga appearances but could do nothing to avoid Schalke suffering relegation to the second tier of German football. Following confirmation of his move back to Schalke, Arsenal’s technical director Edu suggested that the intention was for the left-back to get back up to first-team speed. “We will be keeping in close contact with Sead, and wish him huge success for the remainder of the season with Schalke.”

On the biggest night of his fledgling career, perhaps the lasting memory for Billy Gilmour will be the ferocity with which his Chelsea clubmate Mason Mount pressed and harried him breathlessly without ever leaving him ruffled. The headline after this gritty scoreless draw is that Steve Clarke’s team remain in with a fighting chance heading into Tuesday night’s Group D climax, where they face Croatia at the same time as England take on Czech Republic at Wembley. A win is required for Scotland but they are entirely warranted to believe it can be done because of the transformation Gilmour’s inclusion and the return of Kieran Tierney from injury offered them here. The sight of Mount chasing him, dragging at his dark blue shirt and even occasionally getting near the ball added an extra layer of intrigue to this predictably feisty encounter on a sodden night that could not have been less similar to the conditions in which England opened their campaign against Croatia last Sunday. Their duel felt a bit like a big brother trying to show his little brother that he is still the boss at times, with Mount behind many of England’s most dangerous attacking moves when given a breather from tracking his clubmate. It should also provide head coach Thomas Tuchel with plenty food for thought considering the suggestions that Gilmour may head out on loan to play more regularly come August. Scotland were a far better team for his inclusion. Gilmour immediately assumed responsibility for the bulk of Scotland’s set pieces – as much down to his dead ball prowess as his lack of aerial ability – and by the interval he still possessed a 100% pass completion rate. Mount continued to be at the heart of England’s best work and forced a fine stop from David Marshall before Gilmour got a stern talking to from the referee for fouling Harry Kane as England counterattacked. England vs Scotland is kicking off tonight at Wembley and you can get your hands on the EURO 2020 tournament programme wherever you’re watching – and whoever you’re supporting!...

The £104m Transfer Windfall Arsenal And Edu Could Receive To Help Fund James Maddison Deal
1 min read
This is one of the biggest summer transfer windows that Arsenal have faced in their rich and colourful history. Arsenal finished eighth in the Premier League last term, meaning they missed out on a place in Europe for the first time in 25 years. The Gunners could turn to Leicester City star James Maddison, with Arteta understood to be a big fan of the former Norwich City player and keeping a close eye on him. If the Gunners are to stand any chance of luring Maddison to the Emirates Stadium then they are going to have to seriously cut their cloth to fund a move. London, Arsenal are ready to reduce the size of the squad this summer by listening to offers for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Eddie Nketiah. Midfielder Granit Xhaka’s impending switch to Italian giants AS Roma is yet to be finalised and completed, meaning the Gunners will bring in a further £17million, with a deal having been agreed between the two clubs. If all of that comes into fruition, Arsenal could find themselves in a strong position to launch a bigmoney move for Maddison this summer, with the Foxes star valued at somewhere between £60million and £70million.
Ben White To Arsenal Transfer: Brighton Make Stance Clear, £40m Bid Rejected, Price Tag Set
1 min read
With David Luiz leaving the club, the Gunners are eyeing a new centre-back and one in particular, with Ben White on their radar. White enjoyed a fantastic 2020/21 season at Brighton in the Premier League and earned himself a place in Gareth Southgate’s 26-man England squad for the Euros. London has rounded up everything that has happened so far in the White to Arsenal transfer saga. At the start of June, Brighton slapped a £50million price tag on White, according to the Mail. According to the Mail, White would command a significant wage increase if he is to leave Brighton following his new status as an England international. As mentioned above, Brighton reportedly want £50million for White, which might not make it surprising that Arsenal’s opening bid of £40million has been turned down. Arsenal might want to wrap up a deal for White as soon as they possibly can, with reports of Liverpool and Manchester United also being interested in the Brighton star as well, with the Premier League duo able to boast Champions League football next season, while the Gunners have no European football to offer.
Arsenal have turned down a £25million offer from Aston Villa for creative midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, football. The Midlands-based club are looking to bolster their attacking options, with the side already bringing Arsenal target Emi Buendia to Villa Park recently. Arsenal are set to resume contract talks with Mohamed Elneny before the beginning of the 2021/22 campaign, football. Negotiations over an extension started in April, but they paused for a while, but Arsenal are expected to revisit the talks in the coming months, it is understood. Arsenal are ‘among the clubs‘ in the race to sign Porto winger Jesus Corona this summer, according to the Daily Mail. The report claims the 28-year-old has a £21.4m release clause in his current deal, meaning Arsenal could trigger that to avoid possible competition for his signature next summer. London understands Arsenal could make five signings in different positions before the start of next season as the club seeks significant improvement from the 2020/21 campaign.
James Maddison To Arsenal Transfer: Arteta Wants Deal, Best Position Revealed, Rodgers Verdict
1 min read
As an alternative, the Gunners could turn to Leicester City ace James Maddison. The Spaniard is a big fan of Maddison and would be open to the idea of adding him to his squad if he could get a deal over the line. Despite being renowned as a modern-day No.10 that tends to play behind the striker(s), Maddison does see himself more as a No.8. “Number eight definitely,” Maddison once said of his favoured position to LeicestershireLive. According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners have ‘genuine hope‘ of getting a deal over the line for Maddison this summer. Considering Arsenal already find themselves in a position where they need to sell before they can buy, it does raise questions about whether or not they can raise enough funds through sales to land Maddison and other targets. Leicester chief Brendan Rodgers has previously likened Maddison to Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho, who has, of course, been heavily linked with Arsenal himself in the past.
Pep Guardiola’s Five-Word Verdict That Should Convince Edu And Arsenal To Complete £70m Transfer
2 min read
Maddison, who missed out on a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for this summer’s rearranged European Championship, is one of the Premier League’s best midfield architects, producing goals and assists from the advanced midfield role season upon season. It is not just Maddison’s stats that create a colourful picture, as Arteta’s former master and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is also a fan of the former Norwich star’s talents. Back in 2019, following a 10 win for City over Leicester, Guardiola was asked to address reports linking Maddison with some of England’s top clubs. Although Guardiola’s verdict on Maddison was short and sweet, it tells you all you need to know about the Leicester star. Guardiola, who is more than qualified enough to pick out a quality player when he sees one, is seemingly a big admirer of Maddison’s qualities, highlighting just how big a signing it would be for Arsenal if they were to pull it off. Whilst Leicester have not set a price for what they would consider as fair to part with Maddison, it is worth remembering that the Foxes fended off an offer of £70million from an unnamed club last summer, pointing out just how much it could cost to lure him away from the King Power Stadium. Considering that Arsenal are keen to add five new faces to the firstteam squad this summer, it is likely that Edu will be forced to enter negotiations with Leicester to try and strike a suitable deal if the Gunners are serious about landing his signature.
