If this latest of the usual mountain of Arsenal transfer rumours actually comes true it would surely put a smile back on the faces of the unhappy Arsenal fans who are planning another big protest at the ground this weekend after seeing the Gunners blow a great chance of ending the 12 year wait for a title.
But the smiles would come more because it would be a slap in the face for our London rivals Chelsea than genuine excitement about the signing of their young forward Dominic Solanke, who The Sun reports is a serious transfer target for Arsenal in the summer. ...........Read more
John Hartson has claimed that Arsenal are set to spend heavily this summer, so we thought we’d take a brief look into the latest speculation surrounding the club.
The former Arsenal striker claimed that Wenger knows that his time is running out to add any more Premier League titles to his record, and will invest in the close-season in order to try and achieve that.
One regular transfer target whose name gets brought up every summer is Karim Benzema, and this year will be no different. His club Real Madrid are being linked with a move to sign either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Robert Lewandowski, which is said to free up the Frenchman’s signature, and of course, we are lining up a deal… Unfortunately we all know that Wenger is more likely to milk a Bingo bonus then splash the cash on this necessary addition. ...........Read more
Arsenal’s end of season demise showed no signs of slowing down against West Ham this month after the Gunners, in all too predictable fashion, let a two-goal lead slip at Upton Park.
Whilst Arsene Wenger’s men did manage to salvage a point in the game after a nine-minute Andy Carroll hat-trick propelled the Hammers into a 3-2 lead, the fact that they still failed to take all three points from such a comfortable position will only mount further pressure on Arsenal’s under-fire manager. ...........Read more
The pressure from the Arsenal fans on Arsene Wenger to start matching the transfer spending of Premier League rivals like Man United and Chelsea has been around for years but it has definitely intensified over the course of this season as the usual injury crisis hit and Wenger’s decision not to sign any players really cost us.
I am not really sure whether the Frenchman takes much notice of the pressure from Arsenal fans but he must surely have seen that he needs to strengthen the squad to have a real chance of the Premier League title next season. According to The Sun he is already on the ball and appears to have already sealed the deal for one big signing in the summer, the Borussia Dortmund star Henrikh Mkhitaryan. ...........Read more
There have already been a fair few Arsenal transfer rumours linking the PSG and Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a summer move to the Premier League and with former Arsenal players urging Arsene Wenger to make the superstar striker one of his priority signings.
But there was also a theory that Wenger would not want to pay any one player a lot more than the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil and also that Zlatan’s well publicised ego might have put the Frenchman off. Not according to The Sun though, as they are reporting the news, which comes straight from the horse’s mouth as it were, or the mouth of his agent anyway. ...........Read more
Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger will have to wait until after the current Premier League season draws to a close, for better or worse, before we have a clearer picture of which players may be still in the Arsenal squad for next season, and the next couple of months and the eight Premier League games left for us to play could have a big say on this.
That is definitely the case with our Colombian international keeper David Ospina, as a report in the Daily Star explains that the current first choice between the sticks is leaving a decision on his future until the summer. ...........Read more
A year or so ago you would not have given Arsenal FC a snowball’s chance in hell of being able to sign the young centre back Rafael Varane from his current club, as the French international was a regular starter for Real and was drawing rave reviews for his performances in Spain and around Europe.
For some reason, though, Varane has dropped down the pecking order under first Rafa Benitez and now Zinedine Zidane, with Sergio Ramos and Pepe the preferred central defensive pairing and with Nacho starting to get more game time. At 22-years old and with his national team France about to host the Euro 2016 tournament this is hardly ideal for the talented young defender and there are growing reports that he could be moving on in the summer. ...........Read more
Despite the reports that Arsenal is the preferred destination of the Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as long as his current club PSG do not decide to extend his contract at the end of the season, it does not necessarily mean that the brilliant striker will be playing for the Gunners next season.
Ibra has already talked up a move to the English Premier League but Arsenal are not the only club that would like him by any means. One of the others is the Manchester United of Louis van Gaal that is currently fighting to get into the top four and gain a place in the Champions League for next year. ...........Read more
Arsenal will almost certainly be looking to sign a striker during the summer transfer window, probably two really, unless Arsene Wenger has another of his stubborn moments when he sees the current Arsenal players as being so good that we don’t need any more fire power even though everyone else and his dog thinks we do.
I think that the Gunners could do a lot worse than bring in the Liverpool and Belgium striker Christian Benteke and I will tell you why, even though he has had a bit of a nightmare since joining our Premier League rivals Liverpool. The fact is that Benteke has already proved himself in the Premier League and the fact that his performances and figures were extremely good in a struggling Aston Villa side is just one of them. ...........Read more
Perhaps Arsene Wenger, his back room staff and the Arsenal board have been getting worried about losing some of our best players in the summer after the disappointing way we seem to have blown this season’s fantastic chance of winning the Premier League again. We never seem to be confident winners any more, and rarely feature in those betting tips from online-betting.me.uk any more, so it is obvious that the club need some improvements going into next season. ...........Read more
