Late development could “change everything” as Arsenal bid to conclu

Arsenal fans have had to put up with a frustratingly quiet January transfer window, but it seems there’s still some chance of things hotting up late on as Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri provides an update on the Gunners’ pursuit of Everton midfielder Amadou Onana.

See below for details as Tavolieri has posted on his official account on X to provide the latest information on the Onana to Arsenal saga as he claimed earlier this month that the north London giants were intensifying efforts to sign the 22-year-old.

It now seems, according to Tavolieri, that Arsenal’s bid to conclude this deal hinges on a player sale at the Emirates Stadium, which he says could “change everything”…

Onana has impressed at Everton and could be an ideal signing to help Arsenal replace the injury-prone Thomas Partey in that defensive midfield role, though it remains to be seen if the sale of anyone else in the first-team squad is actually imminent.

Ben Jacobs recently told CaughtOffside in his Daily Briefing column that Cedric Soares could be one potential exit from AFC this month, while Emile Smith Rowe is another, but only if the money is right.

O’Hara claims £45m Arsenal attacker is way better than Jarrod Bowen

Even former Tottenham man Jamie O’Hara insists West Ham star Jarrod Bowen is not as good as Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus.

The pundit got into a debate with ex-Hammers striker Carlton Cole about this on talkSPORT, with Cole making the bold claim that Bowen might actually be the better player.

While Bowen has undoubtedly been a top performer for West Ham in recent times, he’s surely not quite in Jesus’ league, as O’Hara says.

The Brazilian has won numerous honours at Manchester City and also starts up front for his country regularly, so it’s no criticism to Bowen, but he’s surely not that close.

He’s not better than Jesus! Jesus plays for his country [Brazil] week in, week out, what are you talking about?” O’Hara said in response to Cole.

“Jesus is a top striker, Bowen is a really good player, for West Ham.”
