Have Arsenal won transfer battle with BIGGER bid for `new Xavi`? 0

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

One of the latest transfer rumours claims that Arsenal have already had one offer turned down by the Croatian club Dinamo Zagreb for their talented young midfielder Marcelo Brozovic. If the 22-year old really is good enough a player to deserve his nickname of the Croatian Xavi then I can easily understand why Zagreb are reluctant to let him go.

The fact that Brozovic also has a long term contract with the club, lasting until the summer of 2019 means that they are under no pressure to let him leave, but now the Metro have reported that the Gunners have increased their offer and that the transfer now looks like going ahead.

Two EPL rivals to battle Arsenal over Dutch defender transfer! 0

Arsenal face a Premier League battle with Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday and we need to win that game to keep the scousers well behind us in the league table. We will also probably need all three points to stay ahead of our north London rivals Tottenham as they now sit two points behind us but have a home game against Burnley tomorrow.

As well as battling these two rivals on the pitch and in the EPL table, Arsenal are set to be locked in a transfer battle with them once the January transfer window opens in around two weeks. The subject of that battle, according to a report in The Daily Express today, is going to be the Celtic centre back Virgil van Dijk.

All Arsenal need to do now is to beat Liverpool at Anfoeld on Sunday and come home with all three points. It would be a nice bonus if Alexis sanchez could score, after Brendan Rodgers desperately tried to beat Arsene Wenger to the Chile international star’s transfer in the simmer and then showed his sour grapes when Alexis chose the Gunners.

And as if a goal for Alexis and another defeat was not enough for Liverpool and Rodgers, a Metro report claims that Arsenal are poised to beat them to yet another transfer target in January. The former Barcelona team mate of Alexis the man apparently set to snub Liverpool and come to north London in a £26 million deal.

Van Dijk STILL Arsenal’s top defender target 0

There have consistently been regular Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with the Celtic star Virgil Van Dijk. Our interest was first noted when we made a last-minute bid for the Dutchman this summer, but the Scottish giants turned Wenger down as they had no time to find a suitable replacement.

I am sure in the intervening months the Hoops have had more than ample opportunity to source a cheaper alternative, and the Glasgow club are not averse to taking money of Premier League clubs if given the opportunity, so I believe this is the reason these rumours simply won’t go away.

We don’t really know which names are really on Arsene Wenger’s list of possible Arsenal targets for the January transfer window. Most in the football media think that most of the names on the Frenchman’s list will be either central defenders or defensive midfielders.

But the Arsenal boss has always got his eye out for a bargain as well and he is also partial to players on the creative and attacking side of the game, so maybe the name of Sebastian Giovinco is one of those that Wenger is think of.

Two Arsenal stars for sale to fund stunning transfer move? 0

You might not think much to one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours that claims to have news from Italy that Arsene Wenger is looking at an audacious double transfer swoop on Serie A in January. The players involved are both attackers and most pundits and fans are expecting the arsenal boss to be looking at a defender and a central midfielder.

But Wenger has surprised us before, like signing Kim Kallstrom last January, and a Metro report claims that the French boss is planning to fund the signing of striker Mattia Destro from Roma and creative midfielder Marek Hamsik from Palermo with the sales of our German international Lukas Podolski and the young Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell.

Arsenal set for titanic transfer battle with German giants? 0

There have been a lot of Arsenal transfer rumours recently that have linked Arsene Wenger with a stunning transfer bid for the young Argentinean striker Paulo Dybala. The 21-year old has been in such explosive form in Italy’s Serie A this season that he has been favourably compared to his compatriot Sergio Aguero.

But it was also reported that he was unlikely to complete the transfer from his current club Palermo to Arsenal until the end of the season. With all the attacking options at Wenger’s disposal and the injury situation leaving the Gunners stretched in central midfield and defence, a striker was hardly the priority in January.

It looks like Arsenal have at last lined up their first signing for the January transfer window as the Express is reporting that the Gunners have outbid Real Madrid in the race to sign the Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva.

According to today’s report, Madrid have made a final bid of £9.5m for the super-talented 21 year-old, but Arsenal have agreed to meet the full asking price of £12 million to ensure that Silva is on his way to the Emirates.

There will be a lot of speculation around Arsenal in the next couple of weeks and possibly well into the January transfer window. After Arsene Wenger admitted that he was still looking to add at least one centre back to his Arsenal squad, many people think the Frenchman already has his top targets in mind.

One of those is reported to be the West Ham and New Zealand international star Winston Reid. Not only has the 26-year old got plenty of international and Premier League experience and is having his best season since joining West Ham back in 2010, his current contract is due to expire in the summer.

DONE DEAL? Arsenal close on 1st signing of winter 0

Posted on December 14, 2014 by admin

With the January transfer window still over two weeks away from opening, there will be lots of Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds of the papers and football websites, especially after Arsene Wenger stated after the victory over Newcastle United yesterday that he was going to strengthen the Arsenal squad.

The Frenchman was referring specifically to the defensive side of things, with a quality centre back surely the priority. But the central midfield players in front of the back four can make all the difference to a team’s defensive solidity and Wenger may be on the verge of sealing the transfer of the player he wants to provide more strength in this area.
