I wonder if the people in charge of the French club Olympique Lyonnais are keeping tabs on the latest Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds in the football media. I do hope so, because it could make them more willing to accept our improved but apparently final offer for their striker Alexandre Lacazette.
With Arsene Wenger said to be clear about the fact that this new offer for Lacazette will not be increased and with Metro reporting that the Juventus and Croatia centre forward Mario Mandzukic is next on the Arsenal transfer list and much more available after the Italian club spent a fortune on Gonzalo Higuain, they could soon be saying goodbye to 40 million euros. ...........Read more
Earlier in the week it did not take a genius to work out that Arsene Wenger was not a happy bunny about the French club Lyon going public about Arsenal’s transfer bid for their striker Alexandre Lacazette and even revealing the amount of the offer that had been turned down.
It has not stopped the Frenchman from going back with a better offer though, according to a Squawka.com report. It also seems clear that Wenger is determined not to be held to ransom or messed about by the people at Lyon though. ...........Read more
On the face of it this seems like a brilliant deal for Arsenal and one that is right up the street of the financially careful Arsene Wenger. And if the report in The Mirror is right and it was the Gunners that made the first move and asked Valencia about the availability of their centre back Shkodran Mustafi then our manager must rate him as a player that could fill the gap left by the long term injury to Per Mertesacker. ...........Read more
Arsenal have already signed a new defender this summer, although there has not been too much fuss over the transfer as it was for Rob Holding, a 20-year old who has only played one full season for Bolton Wanderers as they finished bottom of the division below us.
He has been included in squad for Arsenal’s mini pre-season tour of America, though, so we should at least get a chance to have a look at what Arsene Wenger has brought to the club. Another player included in that squad is much more important to us and his name is Hector Bellerin. ...........Read more
There is Big news for Arsenal in their hunt for a striker today, as it seems that the Gunners are going to miss out on yet another transfer target, this time Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain. ...........Read more
Arsene Wenger told the Arsenal fans last night that they could still expect some big name transfers before the window shuts at the end of next month, but he also warned that we might have to wait until the last few days to see them.
The Frenchman may have been throwing us off track, however, because The Sun and other sources are reporting that we might soon have completed the transfer deal that would get us all buzzing. ...........Read more
You have to start wondering if there is an underlying reason for players not wanting to sign for Arsenal this summer, because it is starting to feel like Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are having serious trouble convincing the many reported transfer targets to come to one of the greatest cities in the world and play in the most prestigious leagues in the world in a state of the art stadium with Champions League football as the cherry on top. ...........Read more
There has been some detective work going on this week in order to try to get a handle on one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute. And this digging has revealed the interesting fact reported by 101greatgoals that the agent of the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, who also happens to be the player’s wife Wanda Nara, is currently in London. ...........Read more
The good news for Arsenal fans is that our Spanish international right back appears to happy with his life as a Gunner, for now at least. It does not take a great feat of memory for Gooners to recall the bad old days when we seemed unable to hold on to our best players, though, so maybe we should be worried about the transfer interest in Hector Bellerin.
It was bad enough when we kept seeing Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Bellerin’s boyhood club FC Barcelona were keeping track of the former La Masia academy defender and had put him on their list of possible replacements for the Brazilian star Dani Alves, who moved to Serie A to play for Juventus this summer. ...........Read more
While most Arsenal fans were hoping that Arsene Wenger was going to depart from his usual cautious approach to a transfer window this summer and add quite a few players for the season to come, a lot of us were also hoping more than expecting this from the Frenchman and so far that is the way it has been.
If you believe the latest Arsenal transfer rumours that could be about to change, as the Gunners could be about to go transfer crazy and sign not one but two new centre backs to compete with the likes of Per Mertesacker, Gabriel, Koscielny and Chambers. ...........Read more
