Arsenal have completed the signing of former Manchester United and Tottenham defender Reuell Walters.

Walters joined United last season following a successful trial with the Red Devils.

He initially came through Tottenham’s youth set-up, but is already on the move again after a switch to the Gunners.

The young right-back posted an image of himself on Twitter in an Arsenal shirt as he signed his contract. He wrote, as cited by football.london: “New chapter. New beginning.

“Thanks to God and everyone who has played a part in my journey so far, especially my mum, dad, sister, family, and friends. Also a very special thank you to everyone at Arsenal for believing in me. Excited to get started!”

Walters is now expected to join up with Arsenal’s under-16s side. He’s also become the latest former Tottenham youngster to make the switch to the Emirates.

Jonathan Dinzeyi made the switch from Spurs over the summer and Walters has now followed in his footsteps, albeit via a short stay at Old Trafford.

Arsenal target cleared for Inter exit

Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has cleared the way for Christian Eriksen to leave the club in January – just one year after signing him for a “bargain”.

Eriksen joined Inter in January 2020, six months before his contract with Tottenham was due to expire. The Danish playmaker had previously spent seven years with Spurs.

 

During that spell, Eriksen became a key player for Tottenham, but has been unable to replicate that form in Italy. He has only scored one goal in 22 Serie A appearances.

There was already talk that Inter could look to cut their losses on Eriksen as early as the summer. He eventually stayed, but there have been few signs of improvement.

Eriksen is struggling to find a role in Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 system, only starting three league games this season. Therefore, those rumours of an exit have quickly resurfaced.

Eriksen was linked with an unlikely return to Tottenham over the summer. But they are not the only potential suitor in the Premier League; he has reportedly been offered to Manchester United, and Arsenal have been suggested as well.
