La Liga star striker declares himself ready to play for Arsenal 0

Posted on October 29, 2014 by admin

Just like one of the current options available to Arsenal in the forward department, Joel Campbell, the Brazilian starlet Wellington Silva has had to play at various other clubs on loan since he signed a contract with Arsenal back in 2011.

But after his spells in Spain with Levante, Alcoyano, Ponferradina, Murcia and now Almeria, the 21-year old has declared to the media in Spain that he is now finally available to play for the Gunners. This is because he has applied for and received a Spanish passport, as reported by Squawka.com.

Transfer request means Arsenal WILL sign Pedro in January 0

It does not happen very often in football these days because handing in a transfer request is kind of a last resort, but Arsenal will be pleased that the Barcelona and Spain international forward Pedro Rodriguez has apparently done just that, according to a Daily Express report.

The paper claims that the news comes from Spain after the 27-year old finally accepted that with Lionel Messi, Neymar and now Luis Suarez means that his playing opportunities are likely to be even fewer this season. And the Catalan club also has two new strikers in Sandro and Munir El Haddadi coming through from their La Masia academy, just as Pedro himself did.

Arsenal given Green Light for January transfer bid 0

Maybe I should have said that Arsenal get the green and white light from this defensive target, because the player in question is Virgil van Dijk and his current club is the Scottish champions Celtic. But he might not be there for much longer after his recent words suggested that the 23-year old was keen on coming to play for Arsenal as soon as possible.

The Holland international centre back has only been playing for the Glasgow club since last summer but his outstanding performances have already drawn admiring interest from some bigger clubs around Europe, with Arsene Wenger also keeping track of him according to recent Arsenal transfer rumours.

Arsenal star ready to make SHOCK switch to EPL rival? 1

The Arsenal transfer rumours about the Gunners’ star midfielder are back, with the latest claiming once again that Mesut Ozil is ready to call time on his Arsenal career already. And in a move that is sure to anger Arsenal fans everywhere, the Germany international wants to join our English Premier League rivals Man City, according to Metro.

But although the report claims that Ozil ts ready to make the switch north to the Etihad stadium, it does not say that Arsene Wenger is ready to sell. And the way that his Arsenal team have been struggling lately, I think that the last thing the French manager would want is to lose his record signing and one of the most creative talents at the club.

Arsenal hit by another transfer snub from super striker 1

Posted on October 25, 2014 by admin

It looks like it might be time for Arsenal to forget about this particular transfer target. The last time the Gunners were said to be on the verge of completing the transfer of Gonzalo Higuain, it was supposed to be a done deal and the then Real Madrid front man was on his way.

But as we know, the Argentina international opted for Napoli in Serie A instead, where Rafa Benitez was spending money like it was water in an attempt to challenge the dominance of Juventus in Italy. But the former Liverpool boss has failed.

Proof Khedira is desperate to join Arsenal in January? 1

Posted on October 24, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal transfer rumours about the Real Madrid and Germany international midfielder seem to be growing all the time, so according to the old adage that there is no smoke without fire, there is definitely something going on behind the scenes.

But the Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti recently declared that he would not sanction the sale of his player in January even thought it meant that the La Liga club would receive nothing when he left in the summer. And he backed that up by bringing Khedira on against Liverpool on Wednesday, meaning the central midfielder would be cup tied in the Champions League knockout stages for Arsenal.

Chelsea choked as transfer target snubs them for Arsenal move 0

Arsenal fans have had to suffer the pain of seeing another former captain starring for a Premier League rival, with Cesc Fabregas threatening to do for Chelsea what Robin van Persie did for Man United and help them to win the title.

But there could be some revenge for the Gunners, especially if the German defender Antonio Rudiger turns out to be as good a player as his first few years in the Bundesliga with Stuttgart have suggested. The 21-year old has been so good that a host of top clubs around Europe have been alerted, with Man United and Chelsea among them.

Arsenal stunned by £65m price tag for transfer target!! 0

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

I have got a feeling that Arsene Wenger may just decide to abandon this particular Arsenal transfer target. Although the Frenchman has started to spend a lot more money in recent transfer windows, I don’t think he is quite ready to join the ranks of clubs like Man City, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid just yet.

And that is the sort of spending power it would need to sign the teenage sensation Goncalo Guedes from the Portuguese club Benfica. The 17-year old may be highly rated by his club but has only just made his first team debut, so the Talksport report revealing that his new contract is set to have a nmassive £65 million release clause is surely intended to ensure that the youngster is going nowhere.

Liverpool bid £31m to hijack Arsenal’s star striker transfer 0

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

Arsenal fans have been able to have a good laugh at their Premier League rivals from the red side of Liverpool this season. Gooners have not always had much reason to smile about the transfer side of things in recent years, but that seems to be changing with Arsene Wenger being given some decent money to spend.

And the Frenchman really dodged a bullet this summer it seems, while his Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers poked his head over the trenches and took one full in the face, by signing the unpredictable and unreliable Italian striker Mario Balotelli.

Sensational Serie A striker set for Arsenal switch in January? 1

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

If the Arsenal transfer rumours last summer were anything to go by, Arsene Wenger would already have signed the Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain. It was claimed that an agreement was in place between him and the Gunners but it was hijacked at the last minute when Napoli offered Real Madrid more than we were apparently willing to pay.

But the transfer of the star striker to north London could finally be set to happen, according to a Metro report. The paper claims that the Arsenal boss is determined to finally get his man and is ready with a huge offer to convince his Serie A club to sell.
