As we near the end of a season that both players and fans want to see the back of, the transfer market is churning out all kinds of interesting rumours. However, we are not expecting too many huge deals to come out of it despite all the hype. With the pandemic revealing clubs are suffering from insurmountable debt and not certainty when it comes to their financial future, splashing out on luxury signings is unlikely to happen.
Arsenal likely to sign goalkeeper Mat Ryan
Arsenal is keen on signing in-form keeper Mat Ryan on a permanent deal when the transfer window reopens. Ryan is now 29 and seemingly in his prime after joining the Gunners via a loan deal signed that will end at the end of the 2020/21 season. The sources also revealed that converting a loan deal into a full transfer is in full swing and is likely to get accepted.
Since the beginning of his back-up to Bernd Leno, Ryan has had a remarkable impact on the Gunners coaching staff. He made his two premier league starts, including the one last weekend against Fulham.
Graham Potter approved the loan move after Ryan was axed from the side late last year after Robert Sanchez took his place – a keeper that has now earned 20 Premier League appearances for Brighton this season. Ryan simply has a year remaining on his Brington contract and won’t take near £10million in January valuation to sign him this summer.
Premier League Betting Tips
As the Premier League draws to a close, the odds are flying out there as to who will finish in the top 4. The best way to make an educated bet right now is to look at guides from expert tipsters who look deep into the teams likely to qualify and their up-and-coming fixtures. For example, Chelsea still have some tough fixtures remaining and could grow tired with Premier League, Champions League, and domestic cup games, while Leicester has a tough fixture list. Liverpool look in a position to take advantage of this, but thus far look a shadow of the team we saw conquer Europe, the world, and the Premier League!
Aston Villa reignites their interest in Werder Bremen winger
Aston Villa will push once again to sign the services of heavily watched winger Milot Rashica who is currently under contact with German outfit Werder Bremen. Preceding this, he was on Jurgen Klopp’s radar but thus far interest from the soon to be former league Champions `seems to have waned somewhat. Notwithstanding, the 24-year-old dismissed the Reds’ methodology and picked to remain one more season at Bremen in the Bundesliga.
A move away looked certain, yet didn’t emerge. In any case, it was reported a month ago that Rashica will be moving this mid year as Bremen hopes to trade out before his contract ends in June 2022.
As per sources, Villa is hoping to sign two wide forwards in the late spring transfer window. Villa may need to consider central attacking options this mid year, since Liverpool has allegedly enrolled initial interest in a transfer swoop for striker Ollie Watkins.
Tottenham Hotspur could move for Scott Parker or Graham Potter in contention for a return
As per the sources, Tottenham Hotspur’s replacement manager could be a permanent position for Scott Parker, while the club also likes the look of Graham Potter. For the time being though Ryan Mason will remain as caretaker manager.
All things considered, names are being tossed around as of now, and it’s proposed that Parker and Potter could both be focused as a component of Tottenham’s interest for another chief.
Parker, 40, has a significant history with Spurs. He showed up for Tottenham as a player before beginning his instructing profession with the club. Meanwhile, Potter has Brighton playing some delightful football. Although the team is still having problems finding the back of the net, Potter has shored up the goal leaks to some extent!
