Another Kroenke And Kolasinac Update

Kroenke son’s Ozil talks
Josh Kroenke has been brought in and replaced Dick Law to sort out Mesut Ozil’s contract. With manager Arsene Wenger desperate to keep the German, Kroenke has been brought into securing Ozil’s future at the club. Ozil has so far refused a new contract although he is looking for £300,000 per week. The club have yet to offer a new improved contract to the German.
Wenger defends Ozil…again
Manager Arsene Wenger has leapt to the defence of midfielder Mesut Ozil after his poor showing against Tottenham last weekend. Wenger felt that the criticism given to Ozil did not reflect exactly what had happened on the pitch. Claiming that Ozil is fluid and less aggressive on the pitch does not mean he wants it less. However, Wenger did say he fears Ozil perhaps does not handle criticism well and questioned his mental strength. What is needed now for the German is a big performance against Manchester United on Sunday.
Perez out again
According to reports in the Mail, Lucas Perez is out again despite only returning from injury recently. Perez was back in training recently but has not featured yet back in the Arsenal team for the last two games. Deportivo La Coruna would welcome back the striker, with a loan move a possible outcome next season. The Spaniard cost Arsenal £17m last summer from Deportivo.
Kolasinac deal
Still not completed or undecided is the signing of Schalke left back Sead Kolasinac. The club have apparently tabled a contract of £119,00 per week, as have Manchester City, but still no further development on his signature or not. The Bosnian is out of contract in the summer and Arsenal see him as an ideal replacement for Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs.
Rafinha hint
Bayern Munich defender Rafinha has hinted he has had offers from Premier League clubs with rumours that Arsenal have approached the Brazilian with a view to signing him. Rafinha has not gone into detail over who the potential club or clubs could be, but a summer move could well be possible.
Ramsey still believes
Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey still believes if Arsenal can beat Manchester United this weekend they still have a good chance of finishing in the top four. Ramsey claims the club can only keep believing to stand any chance of qualifying for the Champions League places and win against United would get them back on track.
