Arsenal predict XI against villarreal as their player return from injury



Arsenal will come up against Villarreal on Thursday in what is the most important game of the season for the Gunners so far.

The last time the north Londoners reached a European final was under former head coach Unai Emery, who will manage against his old side for the first time since being sacked in December 2019.

Winning this year’s Europa League would guarantee Mikel Arteta’s side a place in the Champions League next season, and the Spaniard is expecting a difficult game at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

There is good news on the injury front for Arteta’s side, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both in contention for the first leg.

Aubameyang has recovered from malaria which he contracted on international duty, while Lacazette had a hamstring injury.

Kieran Tierney is also back in the squad after it was initially feared that he would be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Arteta has several options to choose from in defence with David Luiz also back from his knee injury.

He may choose to continue with the trusted partnership of Rob Holding and Pablo Mari, with either Calum Chambers, Hector Bellerin or Cedric Soares set to feature at right-back.

Arsenal open to offer for striker,who they could sell to fund move for Chelsea star



Arsenal are open to offers for striker Alexandre Lacazette, who they could sell to fund a move for Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, according to the Telegraph.

Lacazette was acquired by Arsenal on the back of a prolific campaign with Lyon, but has never managed more than 14 goals in a single Premier League campaign.

The Frenchman’s total in England’s top tier reads as follows: 128 games played, 50 goals scored. It’s nothing to write home about, if not disgraceful.

Arsenal clearly don’t deem his contributions to be sufficient, though, as the Telegraph report they are open to the idea of selling him this summer.

The Telegraph’s story is centred on Arsenal’s surprise interest in signing Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham, who appears to be heading out the exit door.

The belief is that the Gunners would be willing to listen to offers for Lacazette in order to raise funds for Abraham, which would presumably apply for any striker they’re keen on.

With Lacazette out of contract in 2022, this may well be the only opportunity Arsenal will get to recoup a significant amount of the £46.5m (the fee as per the BBC) they paid back in 2017.

Interesting’: Arsenal could move to sign £70m star, after Tottenham reportedly have bid accepted – journalist



Arsenal have consistently been talked up as the most likely buyers of White.

However, McGarry claims that Brighton are yet to really enter advanced negotiations over selling the central defender.

Indeed, the journalist says that Arsenal are now beginning to look at other options.And both them and Chelsea – who have been keen on White – are now looking at landing Kounde from Sevilla.

“An interesting development has been that Brighton have so far not entered into any serious discussions regarding White’s future,” he said.

“They have named a price and that is a basic £50 million fee, plus add-ons and potentially a sell on fee as well.

“This has led to Jules Kounde of Sevilla being in the mix with both clubs – both London clubs [Arsenal and Chelsea] – someone who is clearly a prospect and also who is flexible, he is not just a centre-back, he can play at right-back as well.

“I wonder if this will become a bargaining chip against Brighton in terms of the sale of White, or could it be the case that Kounde could well become a player for one of those clubs, making White the only option for the other.

Kounde is actually a defender in a similar mould to White. He is also valued at around the same figure.

He would, therefore, be an expensive signing if Arsenal were to land him.

The 22-year-old, who is valued at £70 million (La Colina Denervion) does possess more speed than White and is also comfortable on the ball, just like his Brighton counterpart.

However, he has no experience of Premier League football under his belt.

That could make him a more risky signing for Arsenal, especially as whatever central defender they try and sign appears to be set to step straight into their starting line-up.

If Arsenal are to sign Kounde they may also have to move quickly.

Gianluca Di Marzio says that Tottenham Hotspur have now agreed a deal with Sevilla for the defender, which includes Davinson Sanchez going the other way.Have something to tell us about this article?Let us know

Lucas Torreira face huge summer as athletico decided on his future



Lucas Torreira will have to sort out his future again after failing to impress Atletico Madrid while on loan there this season.

The Uruguayan is having a hard time in his career and is at a crossroads at the moment.

He doesn’t fit into Mikel Arteta’s plans and that is why the manager sanctioned his loan move away from the Emirates in the summer.

This is because teams from that region don’t have the financial power to sign a top player from Europe.

We expect arsenal to bolster their team in the summer and selling him will boost their transfer kitty.

But his poor form on-loan at Atletico means the Gunners might be stuck with him for the whole of next season.
