BREAKING NEWS: coming from Fabrizio Romano, Pep Guardiola has reportedly sent a message to Mikel Arteta, telling him that he is ready to rival Arsenal for the signing of a £70m target. It is said that Guardiola has told Arteta “He is a good finisher, and I’m wondering why Arsenal didn’t finalize his deal in January, you snooze, you lose”, and that he is prepared to outbid the Gunners for the player. The player has been linked with both clubs, but it now appears that Guardiola is ready to step up his interest. Arteta is said to be frustrated by the situation.


Pep Guardiola has commended the skills of Ivan Toney, a striker Arsenal sought to sign for £70 million in January, expressing his wonder at why Arsenal didn’t finalize the deal during the transfer window.

Despite Arsenal refraining from making signings in January, primarily due to Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations impacting several teams, there is growing speculation that the Gunners are preparing to make a significant move for Toney in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The lack of January signings was a consequence of FFP constraints, but Arsenal is gearing up for an active summer transfer window, with Toney emerging as a key target. Manchester City’s manager, Pep Guardiola, has shown interest in the English striker, praising his goal-scoring abilities.

Ivan Toney’s return to the football pitch after a one-month ban has been outstanding. Playing for Brentford in the Premier League, he has impressed with notable performances, including goals against Nottingham Forest and Tottenham Hotspur in his initial games back.

Looking forward, Toney is set to face the challenge of maintaining his goal-scoring form, with a tough match against Manchester City on the horizon. Despite City’s reputation as one of the world’s best teams, Guardiola recognizes Toney’s talent and believes he can pose a threat even against such formidable opponents.

In an interview with GuardiansTV, Guardiola openly praised Toney, highlighting his versatility and skills beyond goal-scoring. He emphasized Toney’s all-around contribution to the game, stating, “He’s an exceptional player, not just with long balls, but also with set pieces, penalties, free kicks, and many other things—they can link with him.”

Furthermore, Guardiola expressed hopes for Toney’s well-being, acknowledging the challenges he faced during his ban. “He is a very good player. He’s back now, and I hope that time in his life, with his family, and in his mind is forgotten,” Guardiola stated, conveying a positive outlook for Toney’s future both on and off the pitch.
