Arsenal have already signed a new defender this summer, although there has not been too much fuss over the transfer as it was for Rob Holding, a 20-year old who has only played one full season for Bolton Wanderers as they finished bottom of the division below us.
He has been included in squad for Arsenal’s mini pre-season tour of America, though, so we should at least get a chance to have a look at what Arsene Wenger has brought to the club. Another player included in that squad is much more important to us and his name is Hector Bellerin. ...........Read more

Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal fans last night that they could still expect some big name transfers before the window shuts at the end of next month, but he also warned that we might have to wait until the last few days to see them.
The Frenchman may have been throwing us off track, however, because The Sun and other sources are reporting that we might soon have completed the transfer deal that would get us all buzzing. ...........Read more
You have to start wondering if there is an underlying reason for players not wanting to sign for Arsenal this summer, because it is starting to feel like Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are having serious trouble convincing the many reported transfer targets to come to one of the greatest cities in the world and play in the most prestigious leagues in the world in a state of the art stadium with Champions League football as the cherry on top. ...........Read more
There has been some detective work going on this week in order to try to get a handle on one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute. And this digging has revealed the interesting fact reported by 101greatgoals that the agent of the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, who also happens to be the player’s wife Wanda Nara, is currently in London. ...........Read more
The good news for Arsenal fans is that our Spanish international right back appears to happy with his life as a Gunner, for now at least. It does not take a great feat of memory for Gooners to recall the bad old days when we seemed unable to hold on to our best players, though, so maybe we should be worried about the transfer interest in Hector Bellerin.
It was bad enough when we kept seeing Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Bellerin’s boyhood club FC Barcelona were keeping track of the former La Masia academy defender and had put him on their list of possible replacements for the Brazilian star Dani Alves, who moved to Serie A to play for Juventus this summer. ...........Read more

Speaking with Arsenal.com Per Mertesacker, who is anticipated as the club’s next captain, was keen to express his excitement about linking up with Gunner’s new boy Granit Xhaka. Following on from the Swiss international’s £30 million move, Arsenal fans eagerly anticipate to see the club’s new signing in action after an impressive Euro’s with his national side Switzerland. ...........Read more
While most Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger was going to depart from his usual cautious approach to a transfer window this summer and add quite a few players for the season to come, a lot of us were also hoping more than expecting this from the Frenchman and so far that is the way it has been.
If you believe the latest Arsenal transfer rumours that could be about to change, as the Gunners could be about to go transfer crazy and sign not one but two new centre backs to compete with the likes of Per Mertesacker, Gabriel, Koscielny and Chambers. ...........Read more
This is getting silly now Arsenal, and not just a little bit embarrassing for a club that was runner up in the Premier League last season and has the remarkable record of qualifying for the Champions League every year, with our own board members admitting that Arsene Wenger has something like £200 million available to him in the transfer market.
Yet still the Frenchman does not seem to be able to seal the deal for a top quality striker. Following on from the Jamie Vardy transfer snub and the failure to get the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Higuain, Aubameyang and Draxler among others, The Sun is reporting that our latest target is likely to sign for Juventus instead. ...........Read more
The amount of £34 million for a player who was just voted as the best player in the Premier League and who was the driving force behind the remarkable story of Leicester City last season does not sound all that much in the crazy modern world of football transfers.
But that is the amount that Arsenal are looking at offering to the Foxes to even match the opening bid of our EPL rivals Man City after Pep Guardiola made his first move towards signing the brilliant Algerian international. We do not know if this offer will be enough and Claudio Ranieri suggested only this week that he did not think his star man would try to force a move. ...........Read more
