EPL: See The Three Players Arsenal Wants To Sell

Arsenal are ready to let Alexandre Lacazette, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson leave this summer, according to Sky Sports.

Joe Willock’s future with the Gunners is also in the balance, with the club yet to decide on whether they see a role for him.

Lacazette’s contract is due to expire in one year and no talks underway or planned over a new deal.

The 30-year-old will be allowed to leave as a free agent in 2022, if no suitable offers come in for him during this transfer window.

Lacazette cost Arsenal around £47m four years ago and they would obviously not get anything close to that money now. With his wages reportedly around £180,000-a-week, the club are very keen to get him off the books and free up space on the wage bill for new players.

Both Maitland-Niles and Nelson are deemed surplus to requirements and offers will be considered for both players.

Willock, who spent last season at Newcastle United on loan, appears to have convinced Mikel Arteta to give him another chance.

The 21-year-old scored eight goals in 14 games in the second half of the last campaign, netting in each of the last six league matches for the Magpies

AFCON 2021: Egypt coach, Queiroz apologizes to Nigerians

Egypt head coach, Carlos Queiroz has apologized to Nigeria and Nigerians ahead of his side’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, tie with Guinea-Bissau on Saturday night.

Queiroz issued the apology while lamenting again the inability of the referee, Bakary Gassama to award a penalty to his team when it appears Moses Simon had fouled Zizo inside the box during the Pharaohs’ 1-0 defeat to Nigeria in their opening 2021 AFCON tie earlier this week.

Recall that Nigeria defeated Egypt 1-0, thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s first-half goal.

Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Guinea-Bissau, Queiroz said at his pre-match press conference that his team lost to Nigeria because the referee didn’t do his job.

“I apologize to Nigeria and Nigerians, the fact is the referee doesn’t do their job, VAR inclusive. It’s totally unfair,” Queiroz said.

“The reality is the Egyptian needs to press. We lost because the referee did not do his job. The bad decision of the referee cost us the game. Probably this won’t be the situation in our next game,” he said.

He added, “It’s not the responsibility of Nigerians, they pressed. We will rise. Moving forward, winning the next.”

AFCON: Nathan Tella Confirms Desire To Play For Nigeria

England-born midfielder, Nathan Tella has confirmed his desire to play for Nigeria.

Tella, who plays for Southampton in the English Premier League, said he is a Nigerian and is ready to play international football.

The 22-year-old confessed that it would be a ‘dream’ to wear the famous green and white colours of Nigeria.

Tella also insisted that he has been keeping tabs on the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Cameroon because of Nigeria and his Southampton teammate Moussa Djenepo, who was in action as Mali defeated Tunisia despite several refereeing mistakes.

The ongoing 2021 AFCON may have played a key role in helping Tella arrive at that major decision.

“I would love to play international football,” Tella told HampshireLive.

“That is always been a dream of mine. If I went away with Nigeria, it would be something new and new experiences bring out the best in players.

“When I look at Che [Adams], I see that he has come back from Scotland as a more mature player. There is no reason why I can’t do that; come back a more mature person.

Tella was born in England to Nigerian parents and he is eligible to feature for the Super Eagles.
