BOOM! Arsenal rocked by MEGA transfer fee for Mbappe

Arsenal fans already knew that Arsene Wenger would have to break the club’s record transfer outlay in order to secure the signing of the manager’s top transfer target of the summer. And with all the hype around Kylian Mbappe together with the reports that the Monaco and France international star was wanted by the likes of Real Madrid the talk was that it would probably have to break the world transfer record set by Manchester United for the French midfielder Paul Pogba as well.

Good AND bad news for Arsenal on Bellerin transfer

I believe that the football media, or some members of it at least, like nothing more than to wind up football fans and I also think that Arsenal fans get this treatment more than most. Any hint of something that will stress us out is instantly splashed all over the back pages and if there is nothing about someone will probably make a rumour up.

Having said that, it is easy to take the news reported by The Mirror and other outlets that our Spanish right back Hector Bellerin has bought a house on the Catalan coast near Barcelona as a sure sign that the Arsenal transfer rumours linking the right back with a summer transfer back to his boyhood club will prove to be spot on.

Arsenal about to seal BIG money Lacazette transfer?

If the reports are true then the only thing stopping Arsenal from completing the big money transfer of the France international star Alexandre Lacazette from his current club Lyon is the say so of the striker himself.

The president of Lyon admitted earlier in the week that his club have received what he described as a nice offer from Arsenal and now The Mirror is reporting that he has also revealed that this has been passed on to the player and his people and that there are no rival bids.

Could this Chelsea reject come good at Arsenal?

It is safe to say that the Juventus star Juan Cuadrado had a rather disappointing six months at Chelsea, struggling to compete against the likes of Willian and Hazard. But if reports from the media are to believed, the Colombian winger might just get a second crack at the Premier League with the Blues’ London rivals, Arsenal.

According to a report from the Sun, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing the pacey wide man to the Emirates. The report from the Sun further states that the Frenchman has already seen a £17.6 million bid rejected for the player, with Juventus holding out for a transfer fee in the region of £30 million.

Mahrez gives Arsenal transfer green light – So why is Wenger waiting?

Arsenal fans already know that Arsene Wenger is a fan of the Leicester City and Algeria footballer Riyad Mahrez, because the Frenchman tried to sign him last summer after a stellar season full of goals and assists helped the Foxes to defy the odds and win the Premier League title.

Just in case any of you Gooners out there had forgotten this, the Frenchman spoke again recently about Mahrez and even said that an Arsenal bid for the player was a possibility. The rumour was that the 26-year old had made an arrangement with his current club that he would be allowed to leave after staying for one more season, so it was hardly surprising to learn of Wenger’s interest.

Will Arsenal really break the bank to keep Alexis?

After reports from various sources in the media, including the reliable Sky Sports, emerged yesterday claiming that Bayern Munich had dropped out of the race to sign the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, a report from the Daily Mail is now claiming that Arsenal have tabled a lucrative £270,000-a-week offer for Alexis to renew terms and stay at the Emirates.

Despite being short of the player’s demands which is understood to be around £300,000-a-week, the report from the Mail claims that the offer is loaded with incentives that take the package closer towards the range of £300k. The news comes on the heels of Wenger claiming that the Gunners are in a much stronger position to keep its best players compared to the time when Robin van Persie was sold to Manchester United.

Former Gunner gives Wenger PERFECT Arsenal transfer

It is one thing for Arsenal to identify the perfect player to go and get in the transfer market this summer, but another thing entirely for the board and Arsene Wenger, assuming it is the Frenchman who is going to manage the Gunners again next season, to actually beat all the other interested clubs to complete the transfer.

Having said that, it is not always easy to identify the right player, so maybe the former arsenal and France international star Robert Pires has done Wenger a big favour this week, as he has claimed in an interview with BWIN that he has found the perfect player for the boss to sign at the end of the current season, and that player is another Frenchman Antoine Griezmann.

Arsenal will only pay what they can afford……

After a report from the Evening Standard claimed that Arsenal had tabled a mammoth £300,000 a week offer to try and persuade star man Alexis Sanchez to stay at the Emirates, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has spoken out about the situation and given his opinion not just on the contract saga revolving around the Chilean but also about the practice of big-name players being paid astronomical wages.

As quoted by Sky Sports, the Arsenal boss said: “You have many different opinions there. Some people tell me ‘just give him what he wants’, but then you cannot respect anymore any wages structure and you put the club in trouble as well.

Does this mean Nacho Monreal is leaving Arsenal?

According to numerous reports in the English media, Arsenal have reached an agreement with the Schalke 04 left-back Sead Kolasinac to move to the Emirates for next season. While the North London side are yet to officially confirm the signing, it is more or less an open secret with various sources like the Guardian, the Daily Mail, the Metro and the reliable Sky Sports all reporting that the deal has been done.
