The English Premier League transfer window will be shutting on August 31 at 11 pm. As a result, various European clubs are hurrying to secure signatures from top players to strengthen their squad during the 2021/22 season campaign.
Let’s review some of the top soccer gossips surrounding various clubs in Europe this season.
Paul Pogba is Yet to Respond to the Manchester United Offer
According to reports, the Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is yet to renew his contract. Pogba’s contract with the Red Devils is expected to end in the coming EPL season, yet no agreement is in place at the moment.
According to EPL transfer rumors, French giants PSG are interested in signing the Red Devils star, who is currently earning a whopping 290,000 Euros per week.
Pogba won the 2018 World cup with France, and it is clear Man United cannot force him to sign a new deal if he is unwilling. However, if Pogba fails to renew the contract, he would command a much higher wage in a free transfer, and many clubs will be interested in signing him.
Arsenal’s Strategy to Secure the Premier League
In the latest soccer News transfer, Arsenal has improved their squad after signing Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United and Martin Odegard from Real Madrid. Odegaard, who also plays for Norway national team, joined Arsenal on a loan transfer in January and made a permanent move recently for around 30 million Euros. The 22 years old was expected to visit Chelsea on Sunday, but he will miss out due to Visa clearance.
Martin Odegaard will be wearing the number 8 jersey for Arsenal during the 2021/22 Premier League campaign.
On the other hand, Ramsdale made 38 premier league appearances for Bournemouth before featuring in England’s Euro 2020 squad. Ramsay joins Bernd Leno and Runar Alex as the thor Arsenal goalkeeper.
Arsenal announced Ramsdale on Friday after Odegaard confirmation. “Aaron is a talented young keeper with huge experience and has international experience for England. He will bring competition and that’s what we want to create – healthy competition, quality competition in every position. We identified Aaron as the ideal option.” Arsenal boss Michel Arteta said.
