The time is right for Arsenal to sell Granit Xhaka, former Gunners star Kevin Campbell has told Football Insider.

He said: “The midfield needs to be revamped. There needs to be more speed and goals injected into that midfield.

“The reliance on Granit Xhaka that Arsenal had has to go. There has to be enough midfielders there who can do a job.

“This is probably the last time we could get money for Xhaka realistically. He is an international player, a good player but the time has come. If an opportunity comes along I think they should move him on and get younger legs in there.”

Rekik makes Sparta Rotterdam loan move

Monday 20 June 2022 17:50 , Matt Verri

Arsenal defender Omar Rekik has joined Sparta Rotterdam on loan.

Rekik will spend next season at the club, who will cover his full salary. The 20-year-old will hope that regular first-team football will solidfy his place in Tunisia’s World Cup squad.

“Omar is well regarded as a talent at Arsenal, but it is not easy to break through there,” Rotterdam’s technical director Gerard Nijkamp said.

“He trained with the first team, but it is important for his development to make minutes at the highest level, a chance that is greater at Sparta.

“Omar is a central defender who is strong in football, but also leads the way in battle and does not shy away from duels. There was a lot of competition to attract him, but we are happy that he chose Sparta.”

Salah demands not met

Monday 20 June 2022 17:37 , Matt Verri

Liverpool continue to appear unlikely to meet Mohamed Salah’s contract demands.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the club fear doing so would bring Salah out of proportion with the rest of the squad, resulting in a number of other players asking for huge increases.

While talks are continuing, Liverpool are willing to accept losing him for free next summer.

Inter chief executive Giuseppe Marotta told Radio Rai: “It’s certainly easier to replace a centre-back than a striker ... we will probably be forced to sell someone in that position.”

Dean Saunders has questioned Sadio Mane’s decision to join Bayern Munich.

Mane is set to have a medical on Tuesday ahead of completing his move to the Bundesliga champions, bringing an end to six years as a Liverpool player.

“I can’t believe he’s leaving Liverpool, I don’t know how it’s got to this point,” Saunders told talkSPORT.

“He’s 30, I think of all his time at the club, the last six months he’s played the best football, he’s been unstoppable at times.

“He went up the middle when (Luis) Diaz signed and he started getting better and better at finding the pockets and linking the play up. I can’t get my head round why you’d want to leave Liverpool right now, when you’re playing the best football of your life in the best combination front-three he’ll ever play in, to go and play for Bayern Munich.”
