Arsenal to win 3-way Premier League battle for Draxler transfer?

The defending of the Arsenal team may be under the microscope of the football media at the minute after the Gunners shipped four goals in two games at the start of the new Premier League season, but as Arsene Wenger pointed out in his comments after the Stoke loss, it was not just the defence who were to blame for that defeat.

With Mesut Ozil not firing on all cylinders and with both Welbeck and Lacazette off colour up front the dominance we had of the ball did not bring us a goal, although many will argue that it would have but for an incorrect offside decision against our new striker.

Arsenal fans fuming over Wenger’s transfer reasoning

There was me thinking that Arsene Wenger was planning to do some serious business in the transfer market this summer in order to avoid a repeat of last season’s awful showing that saw us drop out of the elite of Europe and the Arsenal fans agree that the Frenchman’s time was up.

The club and manager led us to believe that this summer would be different but once again we have spent much less than opur main rivals and you are not going to like the reason given by Wenger for it, as reported by Metro. He would, of course love to buy loads of players and spend lots of money, but the current squad is just too big and so his hands are tied.

Ox WANTS Chelsea transfer but will Arsenal take the £35m?

In all honesty the offer that Arsenal have reportedly received for the England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is quite a good one, even in today’s crazy world of transfers where PSG will pay something like £200 million to take Neymar from FC Barcelona.

The Ox may have a lot of talent but so far his playing career has been about flashes of dynamism and impact broken up by injury problems and loss of form, so the £35 million offer for him reported by Metro sounds like a lot when you consider that the 23-year old is now in the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

5 things we learned from Arsenal’s Community Shield triumph

Arsenal lifted the Community Shield for the third time in four years on Sunday after securing a deserved victory over a sluggish Chelsea side. It came seven weeks after they beat Antonio Conte’s men in the same stadium to win the FA Cup and provides a nice psychological boost going into the new Premiership season. Arsenal finished 18 points behind the Blues last campaign so there is a lot of ground to make up, but the signs are very encouraging. Here are five things we learned from the Arsenal’s Community Shield victory.

Sead Kolasinac could become a cult hero at The Emirates

Arsenal to sell Welbeck to Everton but refuse Giroud transfer?

It is now being reported that Ronald Koeman is not just keen on one of the current Arsenal strike force but two, as the Dutchman is still looking for a player to replace the Belgium international star Romelu Lukaku who completed his transfer from Everton to Old Trafford to play for Manchester United earlier in the summer.

We have been hearing for some time that the Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud was one of Koeman’s top targets to replace the Belgian and for a while we thought he might get him as Giroud made it clear he did not want another season on the bench and that was before Arsenal signed Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

Wenger’s Arsenal XI to face Chelsea with NO Alexis Sanchez

I am pretty sure that the Arsenal and Chile international star will feature at some point in today’s Community Shiled clash with Chelsea at Wembley stadium, especially as the striker has a fantastic record at the stadium, winning all six of his games with either the Gunners or his national side, but I do not think Arsene Wenger will risk him from the start today.

How Neymar transfer from Barcelona to PSG can HELP Arsenal

The transfer of the Brazil international star Neymar from FC Barcelona to PSG has quickly become the most talked about and sensational transfer of a summer of big signings and Arsene Wenger has already had his say about the deal and how it shows the crazy nature of the modern game, but maybe he should be pleased because I think it could turn out to be a big help to Arsenal for a number of reasons.

Arsenal to beat Chelsea AND damage their EPL title defence hopes?

When Arsenal beat Chelsea comfortably last season at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, it was a happy day for us Gooners, but instead of being the springboard to our own race for the EPL trophy it was the start of a great run for the Blues, after Antonio Conte learned his lesson and changed their tactics to go on a run that would see them crowned champions.

Arsenal CAN sign Lemar!! As long as Monaco get Alexis Sanchez

To be perfectly honest I do not think this would be the worst of outcomes for Arsenal in the ongoing transfer sage of our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, because seeing him sign for the French club AS Monaco would mean that he was not joining one of the rival Premier League clubs like Chelsea or Man City that are keen on him.

He would not even be strengthening a club with realistic Champions League trophy hopes like PSG, so as options go Monaco is not a bad one for Arsenal. The latest news reported by Metro is that the French Ligue 1 champions want us to include Alexis Sanchez in any deal to bring their young French winger Thomas Lemar the other way.

Will Arsenal have to sell after striker hands in transfer request?

Handing in a formal transfer request is usually the last act of a player desperate to move away from their current club and that is just what Arsenal have been hit with from the wantaway striker Lucas Perez, who the Gunners only signed a year ago for £17 million.

Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he might have to sell the Spaniard because of the number of players competing for the Arsenal forward positions, but the Frenchman does not want to make too much of a loss and was ho9lding out for something like £13 million according to a Metro report.
