According to reports today, Arsenal have signed former centre back and club legend Tony Adams. I know we are on the lookout for a new centre back but talk about getting desperate Arsene, Adams is 49 years old! Bit past his prime if you ask me!
Of course Adams isn’t returning to the first team, instead will be joining up with the coaching staff at Arsenal and will apparently be working alongside fellow legend Thierry Henry, amongst the youth ranks.
Adams has been in and out of the game since his retirement and his last managerial involvement came five years ago back in 2011. Arsenal however have given Adams the opportunity to rekindle his involvement in football and where better place to return, than with the club he devoted his entire career to. ...........Read more
With Arsenal fans still wondering which striker Arsene Wenger will turn to after our transfer offer was turned down by Jamie Vardy, the news reported by Metro that the Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain is looking to move on from his Serie A club Napoli comes as a huge boost.
Whether Arsenal can finally seal the deal for the forward we tried to sign from Real Madrid a few years ago remains to be seen, though, as Napoli will still demand a big transfer fee for their star man. The Italian side cannot be too demanding though, even with Higuain having a huge release clause of nearly 100 million euros in his contract, because the player’s agent and brother Nicolas has declared that Gonzalo will definitely not be signing a new deal and so could walk away for nothing in two years. ...........Read more
Maybe Arsenal fans will not be feeling so bad today after missing out on the transfer of Jamie Vardy from the Premier League title holders Leicester City. The England striker certainly failed to show his class as Roy Hodgson’s three lions were dumped out of Euro 2016 by the tournament minnows Iceland.
Quite a few people have said that Vardy would not really have suited Arsenal’s possession and dominance bsed style and perhaps they were proved right by England this summer. Whatever the case, Arsenal fans have been anxiously waiting to hear which striker would be coming to boost the firepower of the Gunners and now we do according to The Sun. ...........Read more
While Arsenal fans may have been hoping that the move by Real Madrid to use the buy back clause they insisted on putting in the contract of Alvaro Morata when they sold the young striker to Juventus could end up with them selling the Spain international on to Arsenal, it might not happen and it could get even worse for the Gunners.
Because the Daily Star is now reporting that the player the Italian club want to replace Morata is none other than the Arsenal and Chile international star Alexis Sanchez. The Serie A champions are said to be very keen on our striker and they are certainly an attractive option, especially as Alexis has already spent some successful seasons in Italy with Udinese. ...........Read more
With most of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours focusing on which striker’s might be in the running for a summer move to north London following the confirmation this week that it would definitely not be the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy, the football media might soon have to find something else to talk about.
That is if the rumour reported by The Mirror about Alexander Lacazette is true of course. The report claims that Arsene Wenger is set for a meeting with the representatives of the Olympique Lyonnaias and France international forward and the fact that Didier Deschamps has not included the prolific 25-year old in his Euro 2016 squad means that Arsenal do not have that to interfere with our plans. ...........Read more
After Arsenal found out today once and for all that the England international striker Jamie Vardy would be staying at Leicester City for next season, the pressure on Arsene Wenger to find another front man to supplement the goals of Olivier Giroud has just gone up a notch.
One thing the Vardy saga has showed us is that the Frenchman does agree with the vast majority of the football world about our need for more firepower and that can only be a good thing after recent transfer windows. The problem now is who to get and if we are looking at a real top quality player up front then Wenger needs to move fast before all the best ones are snapped up. ...........Read more
It looks as though the Arsenal manager’s search for a striker to help out the much criticised France international Olivier Giroud will have to go on, as we appear to have missed out on the Celta Vigo and Spain star Nolito and the fact that Arsene Wenger was in the running for the 29-year old at all was because the Leicester City and England forward Jamie Vardy has apparently rejected the chance to join Arsenal.
Even worse than us missing out on yet another striker transfer, according to a report by The Mirror, is the fact that Nolito will be playing for our Premier League rivals Man City instead. ...........Read more
Alvaro Morata will not be playing for Arsenal next season, after Real Madrid upped their asking price to £60 Million, which immediately saw Arsenal drop out of the betting in every online sportsbook. Juventus confirmed that Real would be triggering their right to buy-back Alvaro Morata this summer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 Million.
Old Lady chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “Real Madrid have informed us of their intention to exercise the right to buy back [Morata], we are just waiting for a written offer.” ...........Read more
Mourinho doesn’t want him, but neither does Arsene, I hope!!
Arsenal may have been left disappointed by the news that it is increasingly unlikely that the club will sign Leicester and England international striker Jamie Vardy, but the transfer rumours for potential incoming targets are still in full swing.
The Daily Mirror is today reporting that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a move for Manchester United’s Daley Blind. It is reported that new United manager Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger’s enemy is football, is unsure on whether he has room for Blind in his plans for next season. Mourinho could therefore be willing to sell the player and media reports today suggest that Wenger is not afraid to contact Mourinho over a potential move for the Dutchman. ...........Read more
There has been a growing sense coming from the football media that Arsenal would not get their man, and the fact that the Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy did not accept the offer to move to Arsenal before heading off to Euro 2016 with Roy Hodgson and the England squad was always a worry. He would have been perfect for Arsenal, especially as at that price Wenger would not need to win multiple jackpots at the online casinos at Automatenherz.com to pay for him! And no Automatenherz is not the new German centre back we are looking for as a partner to Laurent Koscielny, although I wonder if we are still looking for a player in that area of the pitch.” ...........Read more
