Arsenal’s recent results indicate that “the jigsaw piece is fitting together” in terms of their title aspirations, as per Danny Murphy.

Arsenal’s recent results, according to former Premier League midfielder Danny Murphy who spoke to BBC, indicate that “the jigsaw piece is fitting together” in terms of their title aspirations. The occasion has come sooner than those with Arsenal tickets expected.

Murphy said on the Football Daily show on BBC Radio 5 Live: “It’s not just this one. There was a late winner versus Manchester United, similar to the last-second victory at Villa.

“It appears that everything is coming together and heading in the right direction. I know that Arsenal supporters are not ready to speak that way.”

Jesus won’t be a guaranteed starter: Arteta

According to manager Mikel Arteta, there are no assurances that Gabriel Jesus will immediately re-enter Arsenal’s starting lineup.

The Brazilian forward has been sidelined since December because of a knee injury, but is now nearing full fitness, having played in Arsenal’s last two fixtures, including 45 minutes in the Europa League exit to Sporting on Thursday.

Speaking after Arsenal’s victory over Fulham, Arteta said: “Now (Jesus), needs to earn his place like anyone else in the team. We have alternatives that can play in different positions and we have different roles to fill in relation to the chemistry of the players and what we ask them to do. It’s a great problem to have, believe me.”

Ramsdale “relishing the battle.”

According to Aaron Ramsdale, the Arsenal team is now playing with a mid-table mindset rather than bearing the strain of trying to win the league for the first time since 2004.

With Sheffield United and Bournemouth, the England goalkeeper experienced two straight Premier League relegations. He is relishing the various demands that come from playing at the other end of the table.

He stated: “Although it’s simple, there is a much more pleasant pressure than the alternative.

“We don’t know how to handle it because few have experienced it.

“So we’re simply going to the games and acting like we’re 10th or whatever.

“I had to discover the hard way that you can always stay high enough.

“If you lose a football game, it can’t control the rest of your life; otherwise, I would have spent a significant portion of my career living indoors and never leaving the house.

“I want to succeed and win every game, but it isn’t the most important thing right now.

“Of course, if there are still four or five games left and we are in the same spot, things will change. But I’m just having fun playing with my friends now.”

Transfer watch

According to Calciomercatoweb, Arsenal are interested in landing Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli and is willing to trade for Kieran Tierney.

Juve has already made the first payment toward the player’s permanent signing after signing him on a two-year loan from Sassuolo in 2021.

The Italian midfielder, who was a transfer target before joining Juventus, has been talked about moving away from Turin, with the Gunners rekindling their interest in the player.

With Mikel Arteta as the left-back of first choice and Oleksandr Zinchenko as the backup, Tierney has slipped down the lineup.

Reiss Nelson, whose contract with Arsenal expires at the end of the current campaign, is reportedly in the running to be signed by Brentford, Crystal Palace, and West Ham for the upcoming campaign.

But, in light of the England winger’s stellar achievements this year, the Gunners are considering giving him a new contract.

Romeo Lavia, a former Man City player who has been outstanding for Southampton thus far, has been linked to a £40 million move to Arsenal. Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert, has downplayed the significance of the links from the Mail.

Right now, everything has stayed the same for Romeo Lavia, said Romano. Since he is a high prospect, it is common to see significant teams associated with him at this time. Fans with Arsenal tickets will be thrilled to see Lavia don the red.

It’s essential to remember that Man City has a £40 million buyback clause for Lavia; therefore, the value must unquestionably be higher.

Arsenal have reportedly expressed interest in signing Brighton playmaker Alexis Mac Allister during the off-season, according to Football Insider, and is the newest team to jump on the bandwagon of suitors.

When the summer transfer window reopens, the Brighton star will be in high demand, with teams like Chelsea, Manchester City, Man Utd, and Liverpool already in the running.

Since Mac Allister’s contract with Brighton expires in 2025, the south coast club may take his reasonable offers seriously in the summer.

According to CBS reporter Ben Jacobs, midfielder Declan Rice of West Ham United is open to moving to the Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2023.

The West Ham midfielder has been a target for Arsenal for some time, and they plan to go on the attack during the upcoming transfer window. Those with Arsenal tickets are big fans of Rice.

Arsenal also has a lead in the race to get the West Ham player despite reports of interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Rice has expressed admiration for Arsenal, their form, their style, and Mikel Arteta, which also suggests that he is pretty open to a move to Arsenal, according to Jacobs, who spoke with GiveMeSport.

TalkSPORT claims that Arsenal will try to sign Wilfried Zaha for nothing at the end of the summer. The England international has often been linked to a transfer to one of the Premier League’s “Big 6” clubs, but no agreement has been reached.

Yet Zaha could finally make the significant career move now that his contract at Selhurst Park ends at the summer’s end.

With Arsenal being prime contenders for the Premier League title this summer, it is evident that Arsenal tickets are selling hot and fast. Hence, official retailer sites may not provide the best value for money and trusted 3rd party retailers can help you reliably source tickets.
