Maybe Arsenal fans will not be feeling so bad today after missing out on the transfer of Jamie Vardy from the Premier League title holders Leicester City. The England striker certainly failed to show his class as Roy Hodgson’s three lions were dumped out of Euro 2016 by the tournament minnows Iceland.
Quite a few people have said that Vardy would not really have suited Arsenal’s possession and dominance bsed style and perhaps they were proved right by England this summer. Whatever the case, Arsenal fans have been anxiously waiting to hear which striker would be coming to boost the firepower of the Gunners and now we do according to The Sun. ...........Read more
While Arsenal fans may have been hoping that the move by Real Madrid to use the buy back clause they insisted on putting in the contract of Alvaro Morata when they sold the young striker to Juventus could end up with them selling the Spain international on to Arsenal, it might not happen and it could get even worse for the Gunners.
Because the Daily Star is now reporting that the player the Italian club want to replace Morata is none other than the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez. The Serie A champions are said to be very keen on our striker and they are certainly an attractive option, especially as Alexis has already spent some successful seasons in Italy with Udinese. ...........Read more
With most of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours focusing on which striker’s might be in the running for a summer move to north London following the confirmation this week that it would definitely not be the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy, the football media might soon have to find something else to talk about.
That is if the rumour reported by The Mirror about Alexander Lacazette is true of course. The report claims that Arsene Wenger is set for a meeting with the representatives of the Olympique Lyonnaias and France international forward and the fact that Didier Deschamps has not included the prolific 25-year old in his Euro 2016 squad means that Arsenal do not have that to interfere with our plans. ...........Read more
One of the best players to grace the pitch in an Arsenal shirt is Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp. It’s been awhile since we last saw Bergkamp at the club, however is there any chance that he could be in for a return role in the coaching department?
Dennis Bergkamp left the Arsenal as one of the club’s greatest ever players. The Dutchman was one of the most influential and creative players that not just arsenal have seen, but that the Premier League has seen in its entirety. His legendary status therefore obtains much admiration, and players are surely ambitious to play the role that Bergkamp did. He was influential on the pitch as well as more recently off it, with Bergkamp telling Arsenal.com how he teaches youth players, ‘The Arsenal Way.’ ...........Read more
After Arsenal found out today once and for all that the England international striker Jamie Vardy would be staying at Leicester City for next season, the pressure on Arsene Wenger to find another front man to supplement the goals of Olivier Giroud has just gone up a notch.
One thing the Vardy saga has showed us is that the Frenchman does agree with the vast majority of the football world about our need for more firepower and that can only be a good thing after recent transfer windows. The problem now is who to get and if we are looking at a real top quality player up front then Wenger needs to move fast before all the best ones are snapped up. ...........Read more
According to reports in today’s newspapers, Manchester United have identified Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey, as a potential target to bolster their midfield.
Reports suggest that new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for a new midfielder. After missing out on new Manchester City player Ikay Gundogan and the potential deal for Henrik Mkhitaryan still some way away, Mourinho has lined up Ramsey as his next port of call, should the bid for Mkhitaryan fail. ...........Read more
It looks as though the Arsenal manager’s search for a striker to help out the much criticised France international Olivier Giroud will have to go on, as we appear to have missed out on the Celta Vigo and Spain star Nolito and the fact that Arsene Wenger was in the running for the 29-year old at all was because the Leicester City and England forward Jamie Vardy has apparently rejected the chance to join Arsenal.
Even worse than us missing out on yet another striker transfer, according to a report by The Mirror, is the fact that Nolito will be playing for our Premier League rivals Man City instead. ...........Read more
Alvaro Morata will not be playing for Arsenal next season, after Real Madrid upped their asking price to £60 Million.
Juventus confirmed that Real would be triggering their right to buy-back Alvaro Morata this summer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 Million.
Old Lady chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “Real Madrid have informed us of their intention to exercise the right to buy back [Morata], we are just waiting for a written offer.” ...........Read more
England and Wales take on Slovakia and Russia respectively tonight, as they seek to qualify in the best possible places for the knock-out rounds.
Get into the excitement of tonight’s match by listening to some classic England World Cup songs, which have got me raring for the coming encounter.
The Dragons come into tonight’s match needing to avoid defeat in order to seal a place in the top three, which is highly likely to be enough to seal a place in the next round, with four of the remaining five groups third-placed sides unlikely to all finish with a better points and goal difference. ...........Read more
Mourinho doesn’t want him, but neither does Arsene, I hope!!
Arsenal may have been left disappointed by the news that it is increasingly unlikely that the club will sign Leicester and England international striker Jamie Vardy, but the transfer rumours for potential incoming targets are still in full swing.
The Daily Mirror is today reporting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a move for Manchester United’s Daley Blind. It is reported that new United manager Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger’s enemy is football, is unsure on whether he has room for Blind in his plans for next season. Mourinho could therefore be willing to sell the player and media reports today suggest that Wenger is not afraid to contact Mourinho over a potential move for the Dutchman. ...........Read more
