Arsenal transfer news and rumours: 2022 summer transfer window

Two defeats in the last three Premier League games of the 2021/22 season mean Arsenal have failed to qualify for the Champions League and it remains to be seen how much they lose in the transfer market after relegation to the Europa League.

That hasn’t stopped the Gunners from being one of the busiest teams in the first few weeks of the summer transfer window.

The striker position will be one of the most interesting after the departure of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah agreeing a new contract. Gabriel Jesus’ £45million deal from Manchester City was finally confirmed on July 4.

Manager Mikel Arteta, who has signed a new contract in the final weeks of the season, is busy strengthening his squad to ensure they don’t lose their fifth-placed improvement in 2022/23.

Arsenal want to sell Bernd Leno to Fulham

Arsenal have agreed to sell goalkeeper Bernd Leno to Fulham, according to Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth.

A deal between the two clubs seemed unlikely a few weeks ago, but the Gunners have now opted to sell the German in a deal reportedly worth £8m.

Leno still needs to pass a medical exam and agree on personal terms before the move is complete.

The 30-year-old made just seven first-team appearances for Arsenal last season and Aaron Ramsdale is now Mikel Arteta’s first choice.

PSV winger Cody Garbo interested in Arsenal

With the Gunners bringing in Gabriel Jesus and Alexander Zinchenko from Manchester City this summer, there is still a lot of work to do.

A spate of rumours on July 25 suggested Arsenal were keen on PSV winger Cody Garbo. The 23-year-old made seven appearances for the Netherlands national team, scoring two international goals. A youth product for PSV, he made 134 appearances for the senior team, scoring 42 goals and providing 33 assists.

Dutch Export VI, which pioneered the links back in March, said recently that interest has been rekindled this summer. However, with PSV under contract until the summer of 2026, forcing him out of the Eredivisie would require a hefty fee. The report also suggests that PSV will not make any overseas transfers ahead of their Champions League qualifying match against Monaco on August 2, meaning there are only three days before the deadline to finalise a deal.

Arsenal expected to make offer for Grimaldo

The Gunners are expected to make a £5.9m ($7.2m/$6.8m) bid for Benfica defender Alejandro Grimaldo to the La Liga club, Portuguese publication Notícias reported on July 9. is likely to be accepted. His Benfica contract expires next summer and the last four-year extension came in 2019.

Former Spain youth international Grimaldo joined Benfica in 2016 after being taken out of Barcelona’s academy. A regular starter at left-back since 2017, he has made 246 appearances for the Portuguese club, scoring 19 goals and providing 50 assists.

UPDATE (July 10): A day after he reported initial links with Arsenal, Newsday explained that Grimaldo’s poor performance in Benfica’s first pre-season has left fans They bragged about every touch he made and believed he asked to leave the club.

Yuri Tielemans prefers Arsenal to Man Utd

Arsenal blasters are reportedly “all in” to approve the transfer of 25-year-old Leicester City midfielder Yuri Tielemans, who has just one year left on his contract with the Foxes and will not be renewed. But while Manchester United are now in the mix, according to CBS’ Ben Jacobs (below), the players want Arsenal.

Leicester paid £39.2m (€46m/$49.5m) for Monaco in 2019, and according to GOAL’s Chris Watts, Tielemans will need around £25m (€29.4m) / $31.6 million), a steal for a midfielder with his quality and prime.

July 22 Oleksandr Zinchenko MF 25 Manchester City £30 million (€34.7m/$36.5m)

Gabriel Jesus, striker: The crown jewel of the Arsenal transfer window, Gabriel Jesus arrives from Manchester City to lead the Gunners’ attack. It was an exciting move for the club as Arsenal’s attack looked hampered following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Fabio Vieira, MF: Arsenal took over the 22-year-old’s youth product from Porto, who made 76 appearances, scoring 10 goals and providing 18 assists. The deal includes an additional £4.2m (€5m/$5.4m) in add-ons.

Results, highlights, and analysis from Liverpool’s win over Aston Villa.

The 3-1 victory over Aston Villa marked Liverpool’s return to Premier League play, but they had to battle hard for their triumph in an exciting game at Villa Park.

With barely five minutes remaining, Mohamed Salah scored the opening goal for the Reds, setting a Premier League defense assist record with Andrew Robertson’s help. Just before the halfway point, Virgil van Dijk increased the Reds’ lead.

The hosts, though, more than justified the Ollie Watkins header that got them back in the game in the second half, and that scoreline did not provide a totally fair portrayal of the game up to that moment.

Unfortunately for Unai Emery, his team’s brave attempt to gain an equalizer left them vulnerable to the counterattack. Stefan Bajcetic, a replacement, sealed the win late in the contest.

Nunez’s mixed Liverpool start continues

It is typical to point out that strikers are, at the very least, setting themselves up to attempt shots when they consistently miss opportunities.

Darwin Nunez, who might have possibly scored two hat-trick goals in Liverpool’s first two games following the World Cup, can attest to the fact that.

Unfortunately, the Uruguayan’s finishing has left a lot to be desired, and he doesn’t have a single goal to show for the raft of chances he has been involved in since returning from Qatar

Among the flaws Klopp has sought to iron out in Nunez’s game since he joined the team are his failure to finish off opponents and a concerning propensity to veer offside.

The manager still has a lot of work to do since, alarmingly, it appears that whatever advancement achieved in that direction prior to the mid-season break has been lost in the most recent weeks.

Control abandons the Reds once more

During the early part of the season, Liverpool’s inability to consistently dominate games was one of their main flaws, and it was anticipated that they would use the break to focus on improving it.

However, it is clear that they still have a long way to go based on how they played against Manchester City and Aston Villa.

Both contests turned into end-to-end brawls where the result was practically decided by the toss of a coin. If this trend continues, Klopp’s team will lose more games than they win.

By this time, it must be hard to argue that a center midfield acquisition in January will increase the likelihood of improvement on that front.

Rewarding young people’s faith

The more cynical Liverpool supporters may think that Klopp’s usage of Bajcetic here was intended to convey to the team’s owners the necessity for midfield reinforcements.

However, the Reds manager has a lot of trust in the young player and undoubtedly saw a chance to utilise him when his more seasoned heads grew weary in the face of a late Villa attack.

That bold decision was rewarded in the greatest manner imaginable when Bajcetic, in one of his few first-team appearances, calmly scored a crucial third goal late in the game.

Why You Should Support City of Manchester

Due to some important players taking their time getting back from the World Cup, the Citizens will be lacking some firepower. With Argentina, Julian Alvarez won a championship, and England’s Phil Foden and Jack Grealish, among others, advanced to the semifinals. Erling Haaland, whose country Norway did not qualify for the World Cup, will be eager to put on a show and City should have two of their greatest players. Kevin De Bruyne, a star midfielder for Belgium, should also be prepared to go after leaving the team early. This season, Haaland has scored 18 goals in EPL action, six more than any other player.

Ilkay Gundogan started with them in a friendly game against Girona last weekend. De Bruyne now leads the EPL with nine assists. In the 2-0 triumph, goals were scored by De Bruyne and Haaland. After scoring 21 goals in each of the previous two seasons, Gundogan now has two. Haaland and 18-year-old Carlos Borges likely start with Riyad Mahrez, who has 31 goals in the last three games. In 10 games for City’s U21 squad, the City academy product has four goals and five assists. Man City is 3-2-4 away from home this season, while Liverpool is 11-0-2 overall.

Reasons to Support Liverpool

In their last five encounters with City, the Reds are undefeated and have won the last three. Liverpool won the 3-2 FA Cup in April, the 3-1 Community Shield soon before the EPL season, and the 1-0 EPL triumph in October. The Reds have gone four games without a loss, with their lone loss coming in a 0-0 tie at Derby City. They won 7-2 against the remaining three foes. Both Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, who have combined for 14 goals and five assists in 21 games across all competitions, should be available. Firmino has also scored nine goals and assisted on four others.

Although Liverpool has four less attempts than City, which has the most in the league with 244, it still leads the EPL with 87 shots that are on target. With 50 shots and 20 shots on goal, Salah and Firmino are in a three-way tie for third place in the league. The Reds’ defense will be a touch porous, but Joel Matip should be available in the center. Alisson, the goalkeeper, Trent Alexander-Arnold, a crucial fullback, and Jordan Henderson, a midfielder, all worked out this week and might all contribute. City’s starting 11 and reserves are missing a lot more players overall.

Lionel Messi was influential for Argentina once again, as they prepare to face Australia, who qualified with France from Group D. At one point on Thursday night, Spain and Germany were both on their way out of the tournament, but it was the Germans who suffered another disappointing performance at a major tournament and joined Belgium in exiting the competition.

The World Cup will now be divided into two paths to the final, with countries prepared for knockout competition. Here is a schedule for the World Cup once all of the group stage matches have been completed:

The Netherlands won Group A with seven points from three matches and will face the United States, who placed second to England in Group B. Gakpo is the primary guy for Louis van Gaal’s team at the moment, although Christian Pulisic, Timothy Weah, Yunus Musah, and Weston McKennie are also dangers for the USA.

France vs. Poland and England against. Senegal on Sunday, December 4

The opposite half of the World Cup knockout bracket begins on Sunday, with France facing Poland, who finished second in Group C behind Argentina. England will try to advance to the quarter-finals with a win over Senegal, perhaps setting up a meeting with the current World Cup champions if France defeats Poland.

Monday, December 5: Japan vs. Croatia, and Brazil vs. South Korea.

Japan, who qualified out of Group E ahead of Costa Rica and Germany on the final matchday of the group stages, will face Croatia who saw out a 0-0 draw against Belgium to knock Roberto Martinez’s side out of the competition in shocking fashion. Brazil, the tournament favorites, rotated significantly for their last group stage encounter, which they lost 1-0 to Cameroon.

Neymar remains an injury worry for the remainder of the tournament, and South Korea will be a severe test after defeating Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the round of 16, qualifying ahead of both Uruguay and Ghana on goals scored.

Morocco against. Spain & Portugal vs. Switzerland on Tuesday, December 6

The last round of 16 matches get off on Tuesday, with Morocco taking on Spain and Portugal taking on Switzerland. The Swiss defeated Serbia 3-2 on the penultimate day of the group stages to secure their spot in the round of 16, while Morocco demonstrated their ability to trigger an upset by defeating Belgium in their group.
