Zigic to Arsenal transfer rumour a wind-up? Apparently not!! 3

Posted on August 27, 2014 by admin

When the Arsenal transfer rumours first started to suggest that Arsene Wenger was considering the giant Serbian striker Nikola Zigic as an emergency replacement for the injured French forward Olivier Giroud, I didn’t even bother getting annoyed.

After all, there was no way there could be any truth to such a daft rumour was there? I mean, if Wenger wanted a striker who was just a big, useless lump, he would have offered Nicklas Bendtner a new contract wouldn’t he? The only possible explanation would be that Wenger’s dog had chewed up his notebook with all the possible striker in it and just left the final page intact. But even then he would have gone for Bobby Zamora.

Have Arsenal already agreed deal for Reus transfer? 1

Posted on August 22, 2014 by admin

The summer transfer window could still hold some interest for Arsenal fans, with Arsene Wenger having hinted that he is still looking to strengthen the squad, especially on the defensive side of things. But according to the latetst Arsenal transfer rumours, we could soon have another top class forward at the Emirates as well, in the shape of Marco Reus.

The Germany and Borussia Dortmund star is one of the most exciting attacking players in Europe, but he unluckily missed out on winning the World Cup this summer after picking up an injury in the build up. That, according to a Metro report, is the only thing that stopped Arsenal signing him earlier on this summer, because the 25-year old had already held talks in London with the Gunners about his move to the Premier League.

Stats suggest Rabiot IS the right transfer for Arsenal 0

Posted on August 21, 2014 by admin

Arsenal have been linked in transfer rumours with plenty of central midfielders this summer, and in every transfer window that I can recall. They are not always players seen as a typical defensive midfielder, often being more all-rounders like Sami Khedira, which Arsene Wenger’s use of Mikel Arteta in the role suggests is more likely.

The player that seems to be favourite to sign for us at the minute is Adrien Rabiot of PSG. I must admit that I knew very little about the 19-year old, but as some reports in the papers are claiming that the deal is nearly done, I have been doing a bit of research, using the comparison matrix on

Arsenal to sell Vermaelen but to which of the bidders? 2

Posted on August 07, 2014 by admin

Apart from clearing out his locker, sticking a SOLD sign on it and handing one of the other Arsenal players the number five shirt, Arsene Wenger could hardly make it more clear that the club captain, Thomas Vermaelen, will not be playing for Arsenal in the season ahead.

The fact that the Belgium international has not been seen at training or anywhere around the club, despite hyaving been due back from his summer holiday some time ago, has been a big hint, but Wenger confirmed the suspicions today, as reported by, while talking to the media in the build up to Arsenal v Man City for the Community Shield on Sunday.

Wenger dashes Arsenal fans’ hopes of Khedira transfer 0

Arsene Wenger spoke to the press today ahead of the Community Shield clash with Man City at Wembley on Sunday. But predictably, the manager was asked about the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the moment and Wenger had bad news for any Arsenal fans that were still hoping that Sami Khedira would be joining his World Cup team mates Mertesacker, Podolski and Ozil at the Emirates.

The Frenchman was reported by as saying, “We were never close to signing him because Jack Wilshere has come back fit and in midfield we have quite a few offensive box-to-box players.”

Wenger in talks with Schneiderlin over Arsenal transfer? 0

Posted on August 01, 2014 by admin

Arsenal may be getting ready to `do a Liverpool` and follow up the transfer of one of the Southampton players, Calum Chambers, with another Saint. The player in question is the French international Morgan Schneiderlin, who has been linked with the Gunners all summer.

And a new piece of Arsenal transfer news seems to confirm our interest in the defensive midfielder, despite us having also been linked with Sami Khedira of Real Madrid and Lars Bender of Bayer Leverkusen. A report in the Metro claims that Arsene Wenger has already held talks with the 24-year old Frenchman over a move to the Emirates this summer, which may explain the angry tweet from Schneiderlin when he was told by his current club that they would not sell him.

Could Arsenal get Khedira cheap after Bayern back off? 0

Posted on July 31, 2014 by admin

It could be back on, Arsenal fans, after our longed for transfer hopes of bringing Sami Khedira to join his World Cup winning team mates Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker received a big boost from the Spanish media today.

Apparently Khedira’s wage demands were the first stumbling block, with the 27-year old Germany international asking for around £150,000 a week, which would make him the best paid player at the club. Then when it was being reported that Khedira had lowered his demands a bit in order to force the move through, we got the bad news that Bayern Munich wanted him and were strong favourites.

Have Arsenal signed the wrong Saint in Chambers? 7

Posted on July 26, 2014 by admin

Although it has not been announced on the official Arsenal website yet, it appears that Arsene Wenger has wrapped up another first team transfer for the Gunners. The player who will soon be joining Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy in moving to the Emirates, is 19-year old Calum Chambers from Southampton, in a deal that will cost Arsenal around £7 million according to a report in The Mirror.

The reason I wonder whether Arsenal have gone for the right man from the Saints, is that the teenager is mainly known as a right back and there are at least two of his team mates at Southampton that I think would have been better signings for Arsenal.

Anchor role for Jack Wilshere in Arsenal’s midfield doesn’t sound right 1

Not so long ago did anyone of us hear that Sami Khedira would be joining Arsenal and fellow German team-mate Podolski on a 20 million pound move from Real Madrid. However, that hot rumour mill seems to have cooled down and Arsenal’s interest in capturing their third signing of the summer is also perceived to have been put off by Wenger.

But, that doesn’t take away Wenger’s imaginative managerial prowess, as he looks set to handover the duties of a holding midfielder to Jack Wilshere. Mikel Arteta played as a holding midfielder 31 times in the Premier League for Arsenal last season, but his lack of pace, finally, seems to have caught Wenger’s eye.

What will be Arsenal’s first choice midfield trio? 2

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Patrick

It is safe to say that Arsenal has the widest and largest array of offensive talents in midfield in the Premier league. Some might even say Arsenal may have the best amongst the world, with only Bayern Munich close to us. Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Rosicky, Arteta and rumours of Khedira or Bender joining, it must be a huge headache for Arsene to decide who should start. Also, it is important to note that all these players are extremely talented and would easily grace the starting lineup of any premier league team. Thus, it is vital to ensure that all these players get enough playing time. Otherwise, they would not be satisfied and may start to look for a move away from Arsenal.
