SAGNA ADVISES ARSENAL TO CASH IN ON NUNO TAVARES AMID INTEREST

According to Portuguese outlet O Jogo, Brighton & Hove Albion want to sign Nuno Tavares on a season-long loan deal from Arsenal. Graham Potter views the 22-year-old defender as a replacement for Marc Cucurella, who will likely join Manchester City this summer. Nuno Tavares had a mixed-bag of a first season with Arsenal after arriving from Benfica last summer. Despite his profile as a powerful full-back fitting in well with Mikel Arteta’s ideas, there were games where the 22-year-old made some high-profile errors, which cost the team valuable points.

MAN CITY TO MISS OUT ON £30M TARGET LIKENED TO REAL MADRID STAR

Manchester City will this week officially miss out on the signing of TSG Hoffenheim talent David Raum, with RB Leipzig set to announce their capture of the German international in the coming days. According to Sky Germany via GGFN, Raum will sign for Leipzig in a deal that could reach as high as €35m (£30m), with the Bundesliga side beating the likes of City as well as Bayern Munich to the 24-year-old fullback’s signature, with West Ham also linked to the defender.

SAGNA REPORTEDLY WANTS ARSENAL TO SIGN LEEDS UNITED STAR

According to The Athletic, Arsenal have submitted an offer to Leeds United to sign Brazilian winger Raphinha, who is also being pursued by Barcelona and Chelsea. However, the bid from the north London giants is short of Leeds’ valuation, with the Yorkshire club likely to reject it right away.
The Brazilian joined Leeds United in 2020, arriving from French club Rennes and has become a fan favourite at Elland Road. He played an integral role in helping the Whites maintain their Premier League status in both seasons since their return to the top flight. Raphinha enjoyed a productive 2021/22 campaign, during which he managed to score 11 and assist three more goals in 35 league outings.

FORMER GUNNER SAGNA URGES ARSENAL TO SIGN CORRENTIN TOLISSO

According to Fichajes, Arsenal and Manchester United could wage a battle for Corentin Tolisso’s signature. The French midfielder is available for a free transfer after his contract with Bayern Munich expired, and he remains an attractive option for many other clubs as well. Corentin Tolisso was primed for a massive career when he broke through the ranks at Lyon. He was considered one of the top talents to come out of the French giant’s academy, but his move to Bayern Munich has not gone to plan.

SAGNA DOESN'T THINK ARSENAL SHOULD SIGN YOURI TIE LEMANS

Arsenal don’t need to sign a midfielder and should focus on bringing in a centre-back and striker this summer, according to Bacary Sagna. The Gunners spent around £160million last summer on rebuilding their squad, with the new recruits helping them launch a challenge for the top four. The north London club are expected to bring in a number of new players again this summer, with a centre-forward thought to be top of the priority list.

SAGNA: FRENCH TEAM CAREER REVIEWED

BacarySagna scored once in 13 appearances for the French u-21 team over the course of a two-year period from 2004 to 2006. Sagna was part of the French squad to the 2006 edition of the UEFA European u-21 Championship.

Sagna had the chance of playing for Senegal, but he opted for France. According to him, he was contacted by Senegalese football officials when he started playing at French club Auxerre, but it was on the same day he had a game for the French u-21 team so he had to make a choice. BacarySagna had to choose either Senegal or France and he went on to pick France over Senegal. He had earlier wanted to play for Senegal at the age of 17, but the country's football officials didn't reply him.

SAGNA: ARSENAL SHOULD HAND THIS STRIKER NEW DEAL

Bacary Sagna has urged Arsenal to do ‘everything’ and retain Alexandre Lacazette, suggesting that a new contract should be on the cards.

However, retaining the Frenchman also remains on the agenda for now.

SAGNA TENDERS A TRANSFER ADVICE TO FORMER SIDE ARSENAL
