Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

If Arsene Wenger is determined to finally sign a top class defensive midfielder to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January, then it looks like the Frenchman will have to keep looking. Assuming that the recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Sami Khedira would be the player coming to join the Gunners that is.

It was rumoured that Wenger had already reached an agreement with the Germany international over the personal terms of his transfer and that Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker had convinced the central midfielder to snub any attempts by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hijack the deal.

Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.

Man City to make cheeky bid for Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil! 0

Posted on October 18, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal are used to making large profits from selling our best players to Manchester City (or letting them go for free!) but I am shocked to think that Wenger would let them get Mesut Ozil in January.

There have been many Arsenal rumours linking Ozil with a return to Germany, but a report in the Express suggests that the League Champions are considering a bid.

The report says: “Ozil has been in lacklustre form for the Gunners after playing for Germany at the World Cup this summer and is now expected to miss up six weeks with a knee ligament injury.

Time for Arsenal to give up on Ozil? 0

Posted on October 13, 2014 by admin

There is a theory that the Arsenal and Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil may never play for the Gunners again. According to media reports, the 25-year old is thinking about calling time on his career with Arsenal and leaving the English Premier League altogether.

Ozil is already set to miss two or three months with the knee ligament damage that caused him to be sent home from the current international round of games, so if the Arsenal transfer rumour in the Daily Mail is true, Ozil may have played his last game for Arsenal.

Should Arsenal take Giovinco on a free transfer? 0

Posted on September 29, 2014 by admin

There have been numerous Arsenal rumours over the years linking us with the diminutive Italian international Sebastian Giovinco, but now it seems that the now 27 year-old midfielder will be available on a free transfer next summer.

He has declined to agree a new contract with Juventus and his agent has made it clear that he will be keen to start talks with clubs in January. Andrea D’Amico told “Sebastian is very focused on the season, calm and aware of his qualities.

“He always works hard to be ready. His contract expires in 2015. Anyway, we are calm.

Arsenal in pole position for stunning Reus transfer? 0

It could be more important than ever for Arsenal to secure a place in the Champions League for next season, especially if the Premier League table at the end of this season has the Gunners sitting above Liverpool and Man United.

That is because it could be the final factor that sees Arsenal beat off the competition from these two BPL rivals for the signature of the talented Germany international forward Marco Reus. According to a Daily Star report, the 25-year old has moved a step closer to an exit from his current club, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Which of these two DMs will Arsenal sign in January? 1

Posted on September 25, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has suggested that the way for Abou Diaby to resurrect his Arsenal career is to alter his approach to the game slightly, become more disciplined and help the Gunners to fill that difficult defensive midfield gap. But unless the French midfielder has a serious change of luck and his body suddenly becomes able to take regular games, it is not going to be enough for Arsenal.

So when the January transfer window opens, unless Diaby has shown he is able to play week in week out and do the DM job well, Wenger could finally turn to the transfer market to solve the problem and there seem to be two main candidates.

Arsenal to sign Real Madrid star as part of DOUBLE free transfer 0

Posted on September 18, 2014 by admin

Whether Arsene Wenger has been forced to make use of the free transfer system because of the mounting Arsenal injury list, or whether the Frenchman had this idea in mind all the time, I neither know nor care. I just hope that the reports are true.

According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, including the Metro, the defensive crisis at the club has persuaded Wenger that he needs another central defender and there are a few available for free because they are currently without a club.

Forget Falcao, Arsenal fans should be happy with Welbeck!! 6

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Look Arsenal fans, I am not saying that the (not official yet) new Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is as good as Radamel Falcao, or that Arsenal should not be in the market for the best players in the world. But I am being realistic and saying that before Falcao was on the table, the arrival of Welbeck today would have been welcomed a lot more by Gooners.

Once we were linked with the Colombian, however, Arsenal fans were never going to be happy with anything less than him or Cavani, so as soon as we hear about the Man United and England man, there are moans and groans and people saying he is a United reject.

No Bony but can Welbeck and Reid rescue Arsenal transfer window? 7

Posted on September 01, 2014 by admin

Right about now, Arsenal fans, I would settle for Arsene Wenger signing just about any player he could get his hands on. But that is just the deadline day jitters getting to me and in the cold light of day, I agree that there is no point bringing in a player just for the sake of it when they are unlikely to play.

We don’t want another Kim Kallstrom or Park Chu-Young but if we are not going to get a top, top, top player then maybe a couple of pretty handy ones would do. So I was hoping that the latest Arsenal transfer rumour reported by Metro has some truth to it. The paper claimed that Wenger was to make a late double swoop for Wilfried Bony and Winston Reid.
