Arsenal striker set for SHOCK transfer to Turkey? 1

Posted on July 24, 2015 by admin

If the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, then Arsene Wenger not only has a massive transfer war chest to spend this summer, but he also has a list of transfer targets to spend it on. And right at the top of that list, according to a Sky Sports report, is a new striker.

The report, which comes from an interview with the Arsenal director Lord Harris of Peckham, also claims that Wenger has identified the player he wants and is in the process of persuading the other club involved to sell the centre forward in question to Arsenal, with the suggestion that the player is keen.

This will make the powerful and talented striker one of the highest earning players in the Arsenal dressing room, although there is still a long way to go before the new salary of France international forward Olivier Giroud gets close to the really big earners in the Premier League like Wayne Rooney and anyone who plays for Man City.

But it is a significant move for the Frenchman who may have been worried about his future in north London with many Arsenal fans and members of the football press expecting Arsene Wenger to spend big and add to the firepower of the Gunners this summer.

I think that all Arsenal fans should be crossing our fingers and toes and hoping that Arsene Wenger fails in his reported attempt to bring the Real Madrid and France international star to north London this summer. According to the Arsenal transfer rumour mill, this could all hinge on Rafa Benitez and how his plans for the season affect the French striker and the saga could drag on right up until the end of the transfer window.

Arsenal fans might soon owe a big debt of thanks to the former Liverpool and Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez, because the chubby Spaniard seems determined to help the Gunners complete the stunning transfer of the world class centre forward Karim Benzema.

All the news coming from the Spanish media is that Benitez is not that keen on the French international and that Benzema does not really fit into his plans for the new look Real Madrid. Now Metro are reporting the latest transfer development is that Benitez wants to sign the German international forward Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund.

It might still be a subject for debate among the Arsenal fans but I think that most of us agree with Thierry Henry about the club needing more options than the French international Olivier Giroud to score our goals.

We do have the excellent Alexis Sanchez of course and our midfielders chip in with goals but it remains to be seen whether Danny Welbeck can push on and challenge Giroud for that central striker position. And the former Man United man really needs to improve his goal tally to go along with his good all round game.

Arsenal rocked by striker transfer snub!! 0

He has been the subject of a large number of Arsenal transfer rumours this summer and was certainly one of the strikers that the Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger would add to the attacking options of the Gunners for the season ahead.

Plus it was thought that the Lyon and France international star Alexandre Lacazette would be more easily available and probably cheaper than other strikers linked with the club, such as Karim Benzema and Edinson Cavani. So the news reported by ESPN today is a real blow.

Arsenal to soon have ‘new Zlatan’ up front? 0

You have to admire the self confidence of the young France international striker I suppose, as even though he has just been released by Arsenal to go to Holland and play on loan for Ajax, Yaya Sanogo has compared himself to the former Ajax star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

To be fair to Sanogo, he is only just 22-years old and has plenty of time to hone his game and start scoring the goals that would make the comparison a little less unlikely. He has the stature for it as well, being just an inch shorter than the Swedish international but he could do with bulking up a bit and getting a few tattoos while he is at it.

Why Arsenal boss is being patient on Benzema transfer 2

After quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with a move for the France international striker this summer, The Sun revved up the rumour mill today by reporting that the Gunners were ready with an offer of around £40 million to tempt his current club Real Madrid to sell.

But the Arsenal fans soon had to rein in our hopes of signing this striker, as Arsene Wenger personally denied the rumour in a pre-season press conference reported by Sky Sports. Or did he?

The Arsenal boss had this to say on the subject, “I don’t know where that story has come from. But that’s not happening at the moment.”

Arsenal turn to Italy for defensive transfer 0

Arsenal fans are still eagerly waiting to see in which positions in the Arsenal squad, if any, are going to be boosted by a signing or two in the summer transfer window. Many of us want a new centre forward but there are still plenty that feel are sorted when it comes to creating and scoring goals and that it is the other end of the pitch that needs help.

The manager clearly agreed or he would not have signed Petr Cech from Chelsea and while Wenger has suggested that the 33-year old’s experience and organisational skills will help the Arsenal defenders, we have still got room to bring in a new player or two.

Arsene Wenger has been pretty cautious in the summer transfer window so far, adding just Petr Cech to the Arsenal first team. But he has been open about his confidence in the squad already at his disposal, especially if they can stay relatively injury free.

Getting Cecg from Chelsea should be a big help top our chances of beating Jose Mourinho’s team to the title and there is a lot of strength and depth all over the pitch as well, but there is no secret that one of the positions we may need to strengthen is the centre forward role.
