Arsenal transfer news daily LIVE: Hakan Calhanoglu, Shkodran Mustafi, Eddie Nketiah


- Advertisment -

Mirror claim they are ready to offload him and see him as part of the problem and not the solution to their current problems.

The 25-year-old is keen not to find himself frozen out of proceedings for the second half of the season in case his place in the Turkey side for Euro 2020 suffers and is open to a loan move to Arsenal.

i verdict: The January before a major tournament often throws up these sorts of moves as players try to firm up their chances of getting a plane ticket. Cahlanoglu already has 47 caps for his country and has previously said he wants to be ‘Turkey’s Mesut Ozil’. Perhaps he could trying being Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil as well?

Mustafi to Galatasaray

Another centre-back could be heading out the door at Arsenal with Shkodran Mustafi apparently being eyed up by Galatasaray.

According to Turkish outlet Fotomac, Mustafi was previously identified as a potential signing by Besiktas, but they failed to reach an acceptable deal with Arsenal.

But now Galatasaray have taken an interest and believe the German would be available this month on loan.

i verdict: Mustafi has become a running joke among Arsenal fans, a living embodiment of everything that has been wrong with the club’s recruitment strategy. They will no doubt enjoy his departure – but only if there are others coming in to replace him.

Upamecano to Arsenal

Dayot Upamecano is a name that has been on the lips of many an optimistic Arsenal fan but the price tag and now competition from Barcelona could throw a spanner in the works.

Upamecano joined RB Leipzig from sister club Red Bull Salzburg in 2017 and now appears to be ready to make the next step with the German club top of the Bundesliga at the halfway stage.

Reports in France claim that the 21-year-old, who has been capped at under-21 level but is yet to debut for the national team, could be the subject of an £80 million bid in an attempt to bring him in as a replacement for departing Samuel Umtiti.

i verdict: No doubt, as we keep saying, that Arsenal need a centre-back but the links with Upamecano, who is one of the highest rated young defenders in Europe, seem to neglect the fact that the Gunners are a Europa League team with Champions League ambitions, rather than an elite level team. They also spent a massive amount of money last summer, and whether the coffers will be replenished this time around remains to be seen. That said, we cycled through about five publications claiming others had the story so this is a wild goose chase of sorts.

Mavropanos to Nurnberg

Konstantinos Mavropanos is having a medical ahead of a loan move to FC Nurnberg.

The 22-year-old has appeared just nine times since signing from Greek side PAS Giannina back in 2018 and will now seemingly drop down into the second tier of German football in an effort to play some regular games.

i verdict: It seems strange that Arsenal, who desperately need to shroe up their defence, are loaning out a centre-back, but this is probably an indicator of two things: firstly, that Arteta does not rate the Greek in his current form, and secondly, the Gunners are expecting reinforcements in that area soon.

Mavropanos has been confined to training and the odd first-team appearance Continue reading…
