The TOP striker Arsenal are plotting transfer deadline swoop for? 0

Posted on August 30, 2015 by admin

After watching his Arsenal team struggle once again in front of goal yesterday, needing a slight deflection from Coloccini to edge past a dogged 10 man Newcastle team, Arsene Wenger finally admitted that he could do with a bit more fire power at the club, or at least another option to what he has already.

And I am sure that the Frenchman will not have left things to the very last minute to identify some possible signings, so will probably have a list of transfer targets. There may well be some big names on it as well, such as Gonzalo Higuain and Edinson Cavani, but the manager is not lying when he says it is the availablity of these players, not the cost, that makes signing them difficult and unlikely.

Arsenal in for striker transfer after Newcastle struggle? 3

Arsene Wenger would not say so of course, but he must have been very worried as he sat and watched his almost full strength Arsenal side struggle to make much impression on the goal of a ten man Newcastle team. The only good thing to come out of the game, to be honest, was the three points but if this latest toothless performance can persuade the boss that he really could do with another striker, then maybe the win will not be the only positive.

Arsenal to start same XI for Newcastle away 0

Hopefully this will be the last match for which Arsenal will have to do without the first choice centre defensive pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny. Judging from what Arsene Wenger said in his press conference on Thursday though, neither will be available for selection today, leaving Gabriel and Chambers to fill in again.

If that is the case then I see no reason why the manager will not go with the same starting line-up that managed a point at home to Liverpool on Monday night. There are changes that the Frenchman could make, such as bringing his fellow countryman Debuchy back in to face his former team mates, but I think that Wenger is looking for some consistency and rhythm and until he finds it I don’t think he will tinker.

Arsenal set for DOUBLE transfer boost from Madrid? 1

If only this latest Arsenal transfer rumour came true, it would be the best bit of news for Arsenal for a long time. Just when all the Arsenal fans were resigned to the fact the France international striker Karim Benzema would not be signing for us this summer, the door might be open again.

This is because, as revealed in a Metro report, the Frenchman’s current club Real Madrid are apparently trying to sort out the transfer of the Poland international star Robert Lewandowski.

Arsenal back in for SHOCK Cavani transfer 0

Reading between the lines, it looks like the Arsenal manager was still hoping that the France international striker Karim Benzema might still be available from Real Madrid, but now that the player himself has poured cold water on those hopes, Arsene Wenger has just a few days to sign a striker that everyone seems to think we need.

But there are not that many out there and the ones that are good enough to really improve our squad are not easy to get. Most are just about impossible, especially at this phase of the transfer window, but apparently there is a chance that PSG might accept a good offer for Edinson Cavani.

Benzema OFF! But Arsenal still in for TWO top strikers 0

Posted on August 25, 2015 by admin

The news that Arsenal will definitely not be completing the transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid is definitely bad news for us. Despite all the recent positive Arsenal transfer rumours about him though, it is not really a big surprise.

And the good news is that Benzema has totally ruled out the move with a week still left of the summer transfer window and that means that Arsene Wenger still has enough time to bring another top class striker into the Arsenal squad.

Ozil calls on Arsenal to repeat 4-1 Liverpool lashing 1

Posted on August 24, 2015 by admin

I think that most of us Arsenal fans will be happy with any win over Liverpool tonight, whether it comes through a lucky goal bouncing in off someone’s bum or even a dodgy referee decision. Because after our shaky start against West Ham, Arsenal are already under pressure and this early game against a direct rival has become more important than ever.

But as well as all three points, our club record signing Mesut Ozil is looking for a real performance and a statement of intent from the Gunners. And as he talks about the way we demolished Brendan Rodgers and his players at the Emirates stadium, he has every right to feel confident that we can do it again.

Arsenal boss wrong with Liverpool transfer taunt? 0

As if the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Liverpool at the Emirates tonight was not already going to be hard fought enough, Arsene Wenger has ensured that Brendan Rodgers will be desperate for his players to get one over on us.

The Arsenal boss has chosen to have his say on the Raheem Sterling transfer saga and he has made it crystal clear, as reported by the Daily Mail, that he is on the side of the young England international.

Arsenal to announce Benzema signing TOMORROW? 4

This would be a great piece of timing for Arsenal if it happens, quite apart from the fact that completing the transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid would be a fantastic bit of business from the Gunners. If the Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli┬┤s latest update on the saga, reported by Metro, is true then it should give the Arsenal players and fans a huge boost.

The reporter claims that Arsene Wenger has all but sewn up the deal abd that the Gunners have laid on a private jet to bring the striker to London from Spain tomorrow, where he will be put up in a hotel and get his medical done before signing on the dotted line.

Arsenal set to seal Benzema transfer NEXT WEEK? 0

Posted on August 21, 2015 by admin

If this does happen when the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are suggesting then it will save us Arsenal fans a whole lot of hair being pulled out and nails being bitten over the last few days of the summer transfer window.

And it will give everyone connected with Arsenal Football Club a huge boost, perhaps even more than last year’s capture of Alexis Sanchez and the previous year’s signing of Mesut Ozil did.

According to a couple of well respected football journalists, our transfer bid for the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema is very much on, although Arsene Wenger has still apparently not gone all out with the money on offer.
