Ornstein provides update on Maddison to Arsenal rumour

Arsenal have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison as the reliable Gunners news source David Ornstein thinks they will be priced out of a move this summer.

The Gunners have been actively looking to recruit an attacking midfielder who can fulfill the number ten role void, which Mesut Özil left behind following seven successful years at the club. 

Mikel Arteta opted for a loan deal for Martin Ødegaard from Real Madrid which was positive. The hope was that the Norwegian would be persuaded to stay on a permanent move following the end of his short-term loan but that did not come to fruition with Carlo Ancelotti re-taking over at the Bernabéu.



The next option on the agenda is seemingly Maddison who fits the bill perfectly for what they are looking for. Young, Premier League experienced, homegrown, and can score goals from midfield.

Unfortunately for the north Londoners, it seems unrealistic to expect them to be able to get a deal like this over the line.

Ornstein of The Athletic said on Sky Sports News: “James Maddison, that’s not what I can see developing, I think that would be a huge stretch of Arsenal’s finances, and I’m not sure it’s realistic especially with [Emile] Smith Rowe signing a new contract.”

Moving onto Emile Smith Rowe who has just penned a shiny new five-year contract with the club whilst picking up the iconic ‘number 10’ jersey, it shows the faith and belief the Arsenal hierarchy share in the 20-year-old.

Arsenal are very much on the wanting someone to play with Smith Rowe as opposed to replacing him with a new signing. The relationship the Hale End product and Ødegaard built in the short amount of time they played together will be something Arteta will be aiming to replicate in the new season. 

There are other alternatives mentioned that the Premier League side have been linked to such as Houssem Aouar and, of course, it’s important to not forget they already have a goal machine in their ranks in the form of Joe Willock.

Whatever Arsenal decide, they need to make their move quickly with the deadline for the end of the summer window coming very soon.

Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him

Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies has admitted that Man Utd defender Luke Shaw is ‘clear’ of himself, meaning that he thinks he is clearly better than him.

Shaw enjoyed a splendid 12 months, by far the best of his career. He was a standout for Man Utd as they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League, runners-up to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, and runner-up at UEFA EURO 2020 with England.

Davies on the other hand endured a slightly less colourful season as he struggled for a first-team place ahead of Lucas Hernandez. In the year prior, Davies enjoyed a mainstay role in the Bayern Munich treble-winning side as well as a spot in the UEFA Team Of The Year squad. 



Davies was full of praise for the Man Utd and England man. Davies said on his official TikTok account:

“I just saw one that was like ‘Luke Shaw is clear’. What does that mean? Someone explain to me. I never really understood that – clear of what?”

He then read out a reply in the chat: “That means he’s better.

“Ohhh! Ohh, OK, I get it now, it means he’s better. Yeah, I mean, he is, he’s a really good player!

“Alright, so every time you say like ‘Luke Shaw is clear, Robbo [Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson] is clear, that means he’s better’. OK, makes sense, makes sense.”

Shaw is finally living up to the £30m price tag the Red Devils paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014. He saw a relatively established name around Europe in Alex Telles come in to which he took this as a challenge and beat it in convincing style.

Telles seems to be already ready to move on from Old Trafford just one year after he joined and that’s very much down to the form and exemplary fitness of Shaw.

Man Utd are active in the transfer market with incoming and outgoings, the big news right now is Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane who are the marquee targets for the club this summer.
