AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella has admitted that M’Baye Niang, who is understood to be a top target for Arsenal this winter, may leave his current side in the days to come.
The boss was quoted telling Milan TV: “Niang might leave the club. He’s discussing it with the management. He won’t be called up for the game against Juve as I thought he would definitely have been distracted.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly keeping tabs on Porto ace Danilo with the intent of signing him in the near future, according to reports in A Bola.
It is reported that the Frenchman had the player watched by his scouts during his team’s match against Rio Ave over the weekend and that the north Londoners are now ready to table a bid for him.
Arsenal have been boosted in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the player indicating that he may be open to the prospect of a move away from Signal Iduna Park in the near future.
The Gabonese international was quoted telling Fussball Bild: “No one can predict the future… I cannot say that I’ll stay for another two, five or 10 years. It is possible that in June a club comes to an agreement with Dortmund.”
Arsenal legend Sol Campbell has pointed out that the Gunners will need to splash big bucks in the transfer market in order to have a chance at winning the Premier League, or even finish ahead of Tottenham Hotspur, this season.
The Englishman, who has also played for Arsenal’s arch rivals in his career, was quoted telling The Metro: “There’s a long way to go but the way Chelsea are looking at the moment alongside Tottenham and Liverpool – those teams just seem to be a little bit ahead of Arsenal at the moment. Arsenal need to settle some contracts and get that sorted, maybe buy another player before the January window closes.”
Arsenal great Thierry Henry has doubts about the long term future of club star Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium.
The Frenchman was quoted telling Sky Sports: “I want him [Sanchez] to sign, everybody wants him to sign. That’s a tricky one for the club. That’s why you have guys there to be able to deal with that… If he ever leaves then you would think the likes of Bayern are going to come, Paris Saint-Germain. Maybe joining his friend [Arturo] Vidal at Bayern Munich so we’ll see. But stay… don’t listen to anyone, find a way, stay!”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has told Juventus that he will not be selling them Alexis Sanchez at any cost, according to a revelation made by The Daily Mirror.
The Bianconeri have been known to be long term admirers of the highly rated Chilean and it was believed that they were ready to splash out as much as £60m in a player plus swap deal for him, which may have also seen Miralem Pjanic moving to the Emirates Stadium.
Borussia Dortmund have revealed that they would be open to the prospect of selling their prized possession, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is known to be a target for Arsenal for quite a while now, if they receive in excess of €70m for him, according to reports in German publication Bild.
Dortmund’s director Hans-Joachim Watzke was recently reported having said that the side would sell the Gabonese sensation, who is also known to be a target for the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid, should they receive the right kind of cash for him, and now news reports have finally revealed how much that amount may be.
Arsenal fan favourite Olivier Giroud has hinted that he is open to the prospect of moving to China in the future, but that he first wants to win the Premier League title with the Gunners.
The Frenchman was asked about his views regarding the recent temptation in players to move to the big money Asian league, to which he replied: “Honestly, from my point of view I will tell you that I can understand, but if you asked me if I want to go now I will tell you ‘no’. The Premier League is my main target so after when I will win it one day, why not, you never know.”
