OUCH! Rodgers rocked by REAL reason Alexis chose Arsenal 0

Posted on December 21, 2014 by admin

It was great for Arsenal fans at the time, hearing that Alexis Sanchez had snubbed a Liverpool transfer in favour of a move to the Emirates stadium, even though Liverpool’s star striker was heading in the opposite direction. And the Frenchman has this week admitted that he was worried about whether Brendan Rodgers would have the advantage in the Sanchez chase because of that.

After the taunting and disrespectful words flung in our direction when the manager thought their was a release clause in the Suarez contract and tried to activate it, it made it all the sweeter that Alexis became a Gunner, with Rodgers showing some sour grapes by claiming it was living in London that made the difference, not playing for Arsenal.

Wenger admits worries that Arsenal hitman could have joined Liverpool 1

Arsene Wenger pulled off one of the biggest transfer coups of the summer when he very quickly persuaded Alexis Sanchez to join Arsenal, but he has now openly admitted that the negotiations were far from simple and he was worried that Sanchez would have been the obvious replacement for Liverpool when Luis Suarez joined Barcelona.

“Sanchez, he looks like he is made for the English game,” Wenger said on ESPN. “Sanchez has settled very quickly. But Sanchez has a kind of game that is instinctive and tough.

“They (Sanchez and Suarez) have similarities. They are South Americans, they are provoking players, they go with the ball.

Shaqiri to snub Liverpool for SHOCK Arsenal transfer? 1

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

Maybe now that Arsenal have not been drawn to face the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the knockout stage of the Champions League, for a change, then their manager Pep Guardiola will not mind selling us one of his players.

And by all accounts, the Switzerland international midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not really a part of the Spanish manager’s plans for the club’s future anyway. But I did not realise that he was even a possible transfer target for the Gunners either, until I saw the Metro report that claims not only is Arsene Wenger keen on signing Shaqiri, but that the Frenchman is closing to completing the deal to bring him to the Emirates stadium in January.

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.

Why Arsenal MUST let this defender leave 1

Posted on December 19, 2014 by Patrick

Following the rapid progress of Hector Bellerin at Arsenal, there is a lot of speculation in regards to the future of Carl Jenkinson, who was loaned out to West Ham United as a result of Arsenal’s capture of Mathieu Debuchy and Callum Chambers. As a result of the Jenkinson’s promising start to life at Upton Park, several media reports suggest that the Hammers’ boss Sam Allardyce has been in contact with Arsenal in regards to make the loan deal a permanent transfer.

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

Posted on December 19, 2014 by admin

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.

Arsenal reportedly sign “The new Vieira” 4

Posted on December 17, 2014 by Patrick

Arsenal certainly seem to be sticking to Arsene Wenger’s policy of buying as many highly promising youngesters as possible, and it looks like the newest addition to the Arsenal academy is going to be the Polish wonderkid Krystian Bielik, already being dubbed the New Vieira for his skills as a defensive midfielder.

The Star has reported that the 16 year-old has been scouted from Legia Warsaw, and he must have impressed Wenger a lot as they are saying that the Gunners have agreed to pay Warsaw 1.6m GBP and he will move to Arsenal on £2,000-a-week which is pretty good for a schoolboy, even if he and his family have to relocate to London to take up the position. You never know he may already have half his relatives living in the capital already!

Arsenal target’s agent encourages transfer bid 0

Posted on December 17, 2014 by admin

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

Posted on December 16, 2014 by admin

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

Posted on December 16, 2014 by admin

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.
