Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang future

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has told Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang he should not need convincing to stay at the Emirates Stadium as the striker continues to dwell over his future.

Aubameyang’s contract is due to expire in 2021 and Arsenal are debating whether to cash on the forward this summer if he does not pen an extension.

Arteta is hoping to keep his captain and top scorer at the club but he will not pander to the 30-year-old.

“The moment we mention Arsenal you know what it means around the world,” Arteta said during a conversation with Ian Wright. “Everybody wants to come here. We have a very clear idea of what we are. It doesn’t need much convincing and if they do then it’s not a good starting point.

“If i have to convince a player to stay or join us then I am a little bit … it holds me back a little bit.”

Willian latest

Chelsea star Willian is set to be reunited with Jose Mourinho in the summer as the Brazilian has agreed to join Tottenham when his current contract expires, according to reports.

The 31-year-old had been in talks with Chelsea over signing a contract extension, but negotiations between the two parties stalled after they failed to agree on terms.

Willian is seeking a three-year deal, however, Chelsea were only willing to offer him a two-year extension.

Speaking on the Keys & Gray show on beIN Sports, former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys said: “He’s (Willian) another one that has already spoken to Jose Mourinho, he’s on his way to Tottenham.”

Aaron Ramsey swap

Manchester United could sign Aaron Ramsey with Juventus willing to let the former Arsenal man leave if they were to secure the return of Paul Pogba in a blockbuster swap deal.

The World Cup winner’s future is uncertain at Old Trafford with rumours rife he could leave the club this summer with Real Madrid and Juventus the two clubs consistently linked.

And now Calciomercato claim Ramsey could be used in a swap deal to bring the midfielder back to Italy.

The reports claim Maurizio Sarri is happy with Ramsey and believes he was in his best form when the coronavirus pandemic put an end to football in the country.

The Italian sees a future for Wales international at the club, as do senior management, according to Calciomercato.

Therefore the only way they would sell Ramsey is if it was part of a swap deal for one of their top targets.

Angelo Stiller to Arsenal

Arsenal are monitoring Bayern Munich midfielder Angelo Stiller.

Mikel Arteta is on the look-out for emerging talent and has identified the 19-year-old as a potential addition in the upcoming transfer window.

Reports claim the Gunners will have a limited budget because of the financial impact of the Coronavirus and Stiller could be snapped up for a relatively low price.

And that, according to German publication Bild, is because the Germany Under-19 international’s contract will expire on June 2021.

Bild claim Arsenal have already contacted Bayern to discuss the teenager’s availability but the Bundesliga champions are likely to want a buy-back option.

Mesut Ozil idea

Fenerbahce are still interested in Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.

Ozil, who earns around £300,000-a-week, has entered the final 12 months of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

But a renewal seems unlikely and the Gunners could decide to offload the German rather than see him leave the club on a free transfer.

Website Todofichajes claim Fenerbahce are considering an approach and could secure his signature for between £13-£17million.

Bayern Munich plan

Kai Havertz and Dayot Upamecano are NOT priority signings for Bayern Munich.

That’s according to German newspaper Sport Bild, who claim the Bundesliga champions will pursue other targets ahead of the Bayer Leverkusen and and RB Leipzig duo.

As previously mentioned, Bayern are close to completing a deal for Manchester City star Leroy Sane with Ajax right-back Sergino Dest their next target.

The news could be positive for Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United, who’ve been linked with the sought-after pair.

Arteta on Kieran Tierney

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says Kieran Tierney will bring something special to the Gunners.

The Scotland international has struggled with injuries since joining from Celtic last summer, but Arteta thinks he’ll be a ‘top player’ for Arsenal.

Speaking to Ian Wright, Arteta said: “I am really looking forward to working with him and giving him the opportunity to play.

“His attitude, his commitment, his willingness it’s incredible. I think he’s going to bring something special to us. You have everything to be successful here, you have the best possible attitude that I know from a player – go and enjoy it.”

Aster Vranckx battle

Two Premier League clubs are hopeful of signing KV Mechelen midfielder Aster Vranckx.

Vranckx, 17, is considered one of the brightest talents in European football having been promoted to KV Mechelen’s starting XI – scoring once and providing two assists in 10 appearances.

The Belgium Under-19 international, who plays in central midfield, is reportedly available for a paltry £1.5million with his contract set to expire in June 2022.

Bayern Munich and Feyenoord have been linked with Vranckx but they face competition from Premier League duo Manchester City and Liverpool, The Mirror claim.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United are claimed to have scouted the player in October.
