That recruitment ended with Thomas Partey. Arsenal activated their release clause on the deadline and secured the transfer that was talked about all summer.
Partey joined Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes and Alex Runarsson as the fourth senior signing of the summer window as Arsenal wanted to build a first-team squad capable of a top 4 result and more.
With the window closed and Arsenal’s squad finalized for the upcoming season, here’s a roundup of the latest rumors and comments on the Gunners’ transfer activity.
Claude Puel slams Saliba treatment
Arsenal chose not to loan young center-back William Saliba for the second straight season after signing a £ 26m deal last summer. The manager of Saint-Etienne, Claude Puel, suggested the decision-making process.
Puel trained Saliba last season, who returned to St. Etienne after his purchase from Ligue 1. However, with Saliba not featured on Arsenal’s Europa League squad, the former Southampton and Leicester manager questioned the Gunners’ approach to L’Equipe via Sports Mole.
“It was short term [thinking], also for the children, ”said Puel. “A great player like William, to whom I wish all the best, hasn’t even made it into the Arsenal Europa League squad. Where’s the logic if not financial?
“He had a great desire to join us. The club is a bit like family and friends [to him]. His adjustment would have been instant.
“This would have happened if all conditions were met. It had to stay in line with our finances and its contract, especially for management. ”
Simeone welcomes “extraordinary” parties
After Arsenal signed Atletico Madrid midfielder Partey on the cut-off date, former coach Diego Simeone praised the Ghanaian international as an “exceptional player” when he talked about Partey’s summer move.
“In these situations of the clauses we cannot give many opinions,” he told Spanish reporters this week via Sports Mole. “They are decisions that are made on the basis of this existing possibility.
“As for Thomas, everything makes me happy that happens to the people who gave me a lot. I remember the games we saw with the B-team and when he started to get through.
“He went to Almeria, it was difficult for him to find a stable place, but he is an exceptional player. He will do well and we wish him all the best. We love him very much. ”
Angelo Stiller thinks about the future of Bavaria
The earlier reported Arsenal goal Angelo Stiller should continue to think about his future at Bayern Munich, according to Sport1 via HITC.
The 19-year-old Stiller made his first team debut in the DFB Cup this week, but his contract expires in 2021 and has been linked to an exit in the past.
Arsenal is named as a potential landing site in the report. Mikel Arteta observed the Bayern starlet who shone for the youth teams in the Allianz Arena at the beginning of the summer.
Werder Bremen, Stuttgart and Union Berlin were also named as interested parties, while Die Sonne (October 12, page 61) reported that Wolves are also watching Stiller more closely, who would be available for free at the end of the season.
