Saul Niguez loan leads to Bukayo Saka interest as Arsenal see £34m bid for Madrid star rejected – Football.London

Welcome to our football.london The Arsenal Way daily news round-up. Maybe not the first, we’ve definitely done news round-ups before, and European round-ups, so I guess in some ways it’s not that new at all. Anyway, we thought we would enter the world of football in a broad and roundabout manner for you and have some fun with some of the stories and captions doing the daily rounds.

Saka Interest from Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone has set his sights on Bukayo Saka as Atletico Madrid look to strengthen their midfield after the loan of Saul Niguez to Chelsea.

According to Spanish outlet La Razon, the 20-year-old winger could be perfect for Simeone’s ever-changing formations – with Saka having the ability to play in multiple positions.

Per the report, Arsenal are asking for a minimum of £43 million in order for the north London side to allow the English player a move to La Liga.

Saka’s contract at Arsenal ends in 2022 and with stellar performances for club and country, he’s attracted attention which could lead to a potential move away from the Gunners.

Real Madrid reject Arsenal bid for Asensio

Arsenal had a £34 million pound bid for Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio rejected by the La Liga side in the summer transfer window. This report comes after links between the club and player continue to surface.

Spanish radio station Cadena Ser tweeted on Friday confirming that the bid was made by Arsenal, with Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan also carrying interest in the player.

Real Madrid allowed Martin Odegaard to join the Gunners on a permanent deal, but a move for Asensio won’t be as easy. The rejected bid shows the intention of the club to keep the player.

Mikel Arteta must win against Spurs

The Athletic’s David Ornstein has said that it would only be right to judge Mikel Arteta after his squad relinquished from a bout of injuries, COVID-19 cases, and new signings had the chance to settle in.

But, he also described Arteta’s need to get a “landmark victory” against Spurs. Speaking on Sky Sports News, Ornstein said: “They’re in this position now that I feel Arteta needs a landmark victory.
