Arsenal Times understand from Express and Star that Aston Villa are preparing a second bid for Arsenal young playmaker Emile Smith Rowe.

Arsenal Times revealed that recently Arsenal rejected a £25m offer from Aston Villa for the 20-year-old.

However, Aston Villa are not giving up, and reports claim that they’re now gathering forces to re-send an improved bid for Emile Smith Rowe.

Emile Smith Rowe has two more years remaining in his contract.

Former Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor believes there is little chance of Arsenal luring James Maddison away from Leicester City this summer.

Maddison has been linked with a move to the Gunners in recent days, but Agbonlahor thinks a move is unlikely.

He told Football Insider: “I don’t see that happening at all, to be honest.

“Leicester are in Europe, Arsenal aren’t. Leicester are a top-six team, Arsenal aren’t. I just don’t see it happening.”

First things first, you may be wondering about the whereabouts of Arsenal target Albert Sambi Lokonga.

The deal still remains.
According to Belgian outlet HLN, the deal is “99.9% complete” but the midfielder is in quarantine in England before he announces as a Gunner.

He will join his new teammates on Arsenal’s pre-season trip to America.

On the topic of midfielders, Arsenal appear to still be in the hunt for Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Ruben Neves.

The Gunners have long been linked with the Portuguese and according to The Sun, the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, remains in constant dialogue with Edu.

However, the £35m price tag on his head remains a significant problem for Arsenal.

Locatelli talks

Les Sports have announced his arrival late last night but warns fans that he won’t be able to join up with Arsenal until he has finished his Covid protocols.

They reported:

“We come to the end of the summer series.

On Saturday morning, Albert Sambi Lokonga (21) arrived in London.

He must pass the rest and the end of the medical tests started the day before. A formality, in theory.
He will then be able to officially sign for five seasons at Arsenal.

He was unable to join his teammates directly in Edinburgh where they are starting a one-week training course (with two friendlies).

Passing through the England box where the health situation is worrying, he must respect a quarantine of ten days before being able to train collectively with the Gunners.

If all goes well, it is during a second internship, in the United States,
that Sambi Lokonga will discover his new partners.

With a preparatory meeting against Romelu Lukaku’s Inter scheduled for July 25.”

Obviously, we will have to wait for Arsenal’s official announcement,
but I think we can all be reassured that this second signing is as good as done.

Who will be our third signing?

Bukayo Saka’s injury status update ahead of semi-finals for England

Published

Gareth Southgate has provided an update on Bukayo Saka’s fitness ahead of the EURO 2020 semi-final on Wednesday.

Bukayo Saka missed England’s quarter-final triumph against Ukraine after suffering a knock in training after successive starts against the Czech Republic and Germany. The Arsenal teenager has already returned to training with England. Gareth Southgate provided an encouraging update on the injury issue ahead of the semi-final against Denmark.

“He should be fine,” said Southgate. “He did declare himself available for the [Ukraine] game. But we had not really had the chance to see him on the pitch and working at the level we felt would vindicate that decision.

“He will go back into full training with the group on Monday and he should be fine.”

The major question is whether Southgate will reintroduce Saka into his starting team

England did well enough without Bukayo Saka against Ukraine. But that appeared to be down to a change in formation. And also the fact that Ukraine simply isn’t on the same level as Germany.

Jadon Sancho, in particular, didn’t provide much more than Saka had in the previous two games. With Saka, you know you’re getting both the defensive work rate and the attacking output.

Saka has come off as a substitute in both of England’s starts this tournament. This is probably unsurprising given how much he runs himself into the ground while on the field.

As a result, opposing defenders become fatigued and are forced to deal with impact subs.

But that is entirely up to Southgate. Along with Saka and Sancho, Gareth Southgate has Phil Foden as a backup option, so he has a lot to ponder about.
