Walcott Set For Saints Debut At Chelsea As Armstrong And Djenepo Miss Out

    Stuart Armstrong and Moussa Djenepo will miss Southampton’s Premier League trip to Chelsea on Saturday but manager Ralph Hasenhuettl sees this as an opportunity to hand deadline day signing Theo Walcott his debut at Stamford Bridge. Midfielder Armstrong tested positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Scotland and will complete his 10-day isolation period on Friday. “He cannot train with us and has been in quarantine,” Hasenhuettl told reporters on Thursday. “It’s a pity that he is out now. Nobody else has tested positive and we are all fine.   “I hope he is back in on Friday and then Saturday, so that he can be an option for next weekend.” Meanwhile, Malian winger Djenepo, who scored his first league goal in over a year in Southampton’s...

Onyekuru Gives Everton Director Headache

Everton’s director of football Marcel Brands has been left with a headache as he ponders what to do with in-form Henry Onyekuru. Everton signed the Super Eagles midfielder and sent him on loan first to Anderlecht of Belgium and then Galatasary of Turkey, because he couldn’t get a work-permit to play in England. But now Onyekuru is attracting interests from Marseille, Bayern Munich and PSG. Brands is now torn between selling the player they got for £7million or keeping him.

Arsene Wenger: I Snubbed Biggest Clubs In The World

Arsene Wenger has rubbished reports suggesting he could leave Arsenal this summer, with the manager saying he’s snubbed the “biggest clubs in the world” to stay with the Gunners, Goal reports. Once seen as untouchable, as he tasted Premier League title glory and pieced together a squad of ‘Invincibles’, the Frenchman has seen his position called into question of late. FA Cup glory in 2017 helped to salvage a season that saw Arsenal slip out of the top four for the first time under their current boss, with that success enough to earn Wenger a two-year contract extension. He has vowed to see that agreement out, amid talk that the current campaign could be his last, with interest from afar having been knocked back at regular intervals to remain in the Emirates Stadium hot-seat.

Arsenal Confident Of Securing Deals For Aubameyang And Mkhitaryan

Arsenal are growing increasingly confident of signing Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this month with both players agreeing personal terms with the club, Goal understands. Arsene Wenger is looking to soften the blow of losing Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United by bringing in what he sees as two world class attacking players and talks with Mkhitaryan’s agent Mino Raiola have finally seen a breakthrough after Arsenal agreed a healthy financial package to make the Armenian one of the club’s highest paid players. Sanchez was forced to train with the club’s development team on Thursday as his move to United was deemed imminent by Wenger. The transfer will have to be completed by Friday 12pm GMT in order for the 28-year-old to be available for Saturday’s league match away to ...

Everton Sign Theo Walcott From Arsenal For Reported £20m On 3.5-Year Deal

Theo Walcott has completed signing for Everton for a fee of £20m. Arsenal's longest-serving player Walcott has scored 108 goals for the club but has found game time difficult to come by this season in a year when he is desperate to be included in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the World Cup in Russia. Theo Walcott is a product of the Southampton Academy and started his career with Southampton before joining Arsenal for £5 million in 2006. His speedy pace and ball crossing led his manager Arsene Wenger to deploy him on the wing for most of his career. Walcott has been played as a striker since the 2012–13 season when he was Arsenal's top scorer. During his 12-year stint in London, Walcott won three FA Cups and two Community Shields. He has been capped 47 times by England, but his in...

Everton In Talks To Sign Arsenal’s Theo Walcott

Everton manager Sam Allardyce says the club is negotiating with Arsenal to sign Theo Walcott on a permanent deal. Allardyce is keen to strengthen his attacking options and said Walcott, 28, would be a “fantastic addition”. “It’s not imminent but negotiations are going on and we’re hoping to negotiate a permanent deal,” said Allardyce, 63. “I don’t get optimistic otherwise I get disappointed. I’ll be very excited and enthused when someone, even if it’s not Theo, has signed on the dotted line.” Allardyce, who has already signed striker Cenk Tosun from Besitkas for £27m in January, has cited Walcott’s “pace”, “experience” and “crossing ability” as attributes the England international would offer.

Everton Favourites To Beat Southampton In Race To Sign Walcott In £20m Deal

Arsenal may consider letting the England forward leave this month, with Walcott on the periphery of Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans. And Everton are confident that they can beat the Saints to Walcott’s signature this month. Everton would be able to get close to Walcott’s current deal, worth £110,000 per week; while Southampton’s financial limits would mean the 28-year-old would need to take pay cut to rejoin the club where he started his career. However, if Walcott prefers not to uproot his young family from the south of England, Southampton may well find themselves in pole position to land the player. Walcott seems certain to leave the Emirates in the summer given his lack of action so far this season. However, much could depend on whether Alexis Sanchez moves on this month, with We...

Arsene Wenger Unfazed By Turnout Of Arsenal Fans For Europa League Win Over BATE Borisov

Arsene Wenger insisted he respected those Arsenal supporters who stayed away from their Europa League victory over BATE Borisov on Thursday. The Gunners, already assured of progressing as winners of group H, hammered the Belarusian champions 6-0 in front of a record-low Emirates stadium crowd. While the official figure was 54,648 it is understood less than 30,000 fans were present to see Arsenal run riot with an emphatic victory. Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny all got on the score-sheet while Denis Polyakov scored an own goal and Olivier Giroud converted a penalty. The likes of Borussia Dortmund, Napoli or Celtic are now waiting in Monday’s draw for the round of 32 as Wenger – toasting his 700th win as Arsenal boss at the full-time whistle – def...

Wenger Explains Decision To Deny Lacazette A Shot At First Arsenal Hat-Trick

Arsene Wenger says Alexandre Lacazette was denied an opportunity to net his first Arsenal hat-trick because he was “tired”. The France international continued his impressive start to life with the Gunners on Monday as he bagged a brace in a 2-0 victory over West Brom. Lacazette opened the scoring in the Premier League encounter at Emirates Stadium in the 20th minute, before going on to convert a 67th-minute penalty. The 26-year-old would have had his eyes on the match ball at that stage, but was replaced seven minutes from the end by countryman Olivier Giroud. Explaining that decision, Arsenal boss Wenger told the Evening Standard: “I took him off because he was tired. “I would have loved him [to score a hat-trick]… he had an opportunity. But I gave him the penalty as well you know. O...

Henry Backs Lacazette Fire Arsenal To Glory

Arsenal great Thierry Henry is trusting countryman Alexandre Lacazette to follow in his footsteps and find success with the Gunners but warns that Arsene Wenger’s full squad will be required to make it happen. The former Olympique Lyon forward joined Arsenal for a club record fee and his set to be Wenger’s first-choice striker ahead of fellow France striker Olivier Giroud. Henry, Arsenal’s all-time top goal scorer with 228 goals, believes both Lacazette and Giroud will offer versatility for the current squad’s benefit. “(Lacazette) has a different game to Giroud, which I think is good because you need different types of strikers,” Henry said on Sky Sports. “He did it in the French league and people might say it’s a different league, but, with due respect to Lyon, he’ll also be ...

Arsenal Urged To Accept Everton’s £30m Bid For Walcott

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said the club should accept a £30m offer for Theo Walcott, amid reports Everton is chasing the England international. And while Wright insists he will “always love” Walcott, he accepts that the time could be right to move on. “Sad to see the amount of disrespect that Theo gets from the fans. I’ll always love him, but if it is a 30 million bid, got to take it,” Wright tweeted. Walcott scored 14 goals for the Gunners by January last season, but quickly faded off, only adding five more as Arsene Wenger’s men failed to qualify for the Champions League. The arrival of Alexandre Lacazette this summer and the club’s pursuit of Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, may see Walcott spend more time out of the team.

Giroud Warns Arsenal Over Playing Time

France forward Olivier Giroud said on Tuesday he will not accept a bit-part role with Arsenal next season. The 30-year-old was often a substitute over the last campaign as Gunners manager Arsene Wenger preferred to line up Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott in attack. Giroud, who also had an injury-disrupted campaign, made only 11 league starts and, with 18 appearances from the bench, was the Arsenal player most used as a substitute last season. But while he said he’s happy at Arsenal, the former Montpellier striker says he wants to play more. “I still have two or even three years left on my Arsenal contract, for the moment my future is at Arsenal,” he said. “I feel good here, I want to win the Premier League with Arsenal. “But I don’t know what the future holds.” On Sund...
