Check Out “Saudi Arabia’s financial influence worries European clubs.” At first, many people believed that the only players who would consider accepting money from the Middle East were those who were nearing the end of their careers.

However, the possibility of big names like Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Manchester City treble winner Riyad Mahrez, and Bayern Munich’s Sadio Mane being tempted to switch to Saudi Arabia is an unwanted headache for the established superpowers as well as for UEFA themselves, who are concerned that their European competitions will be less appealing to TV viewers.

It is our understanding that Mahrez has already reached an agreement on a lucrative contract with Al Ahli, and all signs point to Henderson being willing to forego his role as Liverpool captain in order to reconnect with his former teammate Steven Gerrard.

Mane is also lobbying for a transfer away from German heavyweights Bayern, and it is anticipated that additional megastars may follow suit before the end of the summer transfer season.

Even managers are a target, as evidenced by the fact that Fulham’s Marco Silva has not yet signed a new contract despite interest from Saudi Arabia.

On Thursday, questions regarding the impending signings of Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber were directed at Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.

After a club record £105 million agreement was made with West Ham ten days ago, Rice has passed his medical with the Gunners and agreed to personal terms with the club.

According to reports, the Hammers are extremely frustrated by the delay, as the attorneys for Arsenal have not yet approved the transaction.

The fans are still waiting for word from the Gunners that they have agreed to a deal worth forty million pounds to recruit defender Timber from Ajax.

The Arsenal football team is now in Germany, and on Sunday they will depart for the United States.

After the match with Nurnberg ended in a 1-1 tie, Arteta was asked about the transactions, and he responded by saying, “At the moment we are working with the group of players that is here.”

“At this time, we do not have anything to announce, but you will be the first to know once it is completed.”
