In Case You Missed It: Arsenal Transfer News Round-up

Updated

Today for CF, I’m going to try a little something new. Although #content, traffic figures, page views, etc. might indicate otherwise, there haven’t been enough rumors or updates on the significant transfer stories surrounding Arsenal over the past day or two to warrant a complete post. The rumors have come from sources that don’t live up to my usual “go with it” criteria, so it hasn’t been enough for me to feel like I should write a whole separate piece.

I’ll give you a few bullet point updates to chat about, then. If you’d want to see more CFs like this, let me know. perhaps once per week?

Gabriel Jesus’ purchase price has apparently been orally agreed upon by Arsenal. There is no information on what it would be, although the last I heard, the clubs were discussing a range of £50M. Jesus has still to sign his contract, which is estimated to be worth roughly £220K per week and to pass a medical exam. Jesus apparently let it be known that he preferred Arsenal and being reunited with Mikel Arteta, rejecting Chelsea and Spurs in the process. The young man is aware of his goals.

Undoubtedly, Leeds United turned down Arsenal’s low-ball offer for Raphinha. The most recent I heard was that they wanted more than £60 million for him, which I think is a bit excessive. It appears that Leeds is attempting to incite a bidding war given the interest shown in Raphinha by Chelsea, Spurs, and perhaps one or two other clubs. My instinct tells me that Arsenal won’t have to spend that much money on him if they decide to sign him. Richarlison is reportedly the player that the other London clubs are more interested in, which strikes me as a code for the fact that Raphinha would almost certainly wind up at the Emirates if he decides to leave at all.

Nuno Tavares is appealing to Atlanta. Arsenal wants a sell for £35 million or a straight loan, nothing in between. The Serie A team is unwilling to play right now. I see why Arsenal might be reluctant to work out loan deals with Italian teams in light of the Lucas Torreira incident with Fiorentina.

Another Alvaro Morata report suggested that he would serve as a backup choice if the deal for Gabriel Jesus falls through. Even if the deal for Jesus falls through, Arsenal won’t be signing Morata. Media, halt this.

Have any of you noticed any other objects floating around outside?
