Arsenal fans fuming over Wenger’s transfer reasoning

There was me thinking that Arsene Wenger was planning to do some serious business in the transfer market this summer in order to avoid a repeat of last season’s awful showing that saw us drop out of the elite of Europe and the Arsenal fans agree that the Frenchman’s time was up.

The club and manager led us to believe that this summer would be different but once again we have spent much less than opur main rivals and you are not going to like the reason given by Wenger for it, as reported by Metro. He would, of course love to buy loads of players and spend lots of money, but the current squad is just too big and so his hands are tied.

Ox WANTS Chelsea transfer but will Arsenal take the £35m?

In all honesty the offer that Arsenal have reportedly received for the England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is quite a good one, even in today’s crazy world of transfers where PSG will pay something like £200 million to take Neymar from FC Barcelona.

The Ox may have a lot of talent but so far his playing career has been about flashes of dynamism and impact broken up by injury problems and loss of form, so the £35 million offer for him reported by Metro sounds like a lot when you consider that the 23-year old is now in the final year of his contract with the Gunners.

Arsenal to sell Welbeck to Everton but refuse Giroud transfer?

It is now being reported that Ronald Koeman is not just keen on one of the current Arsenal strike force but two, as the Dutchman is still looking for a player to replace the Belgium international star Romelu Lukaku who completed his transfer from Everton to Old Trafford to play for Manchester United earlier in the summer.

We have been hearing for some time that the Arsenal and France centre forward Olivier Giroud was one of Koeman’s top targets to replace the Belgian and for a while we thought he might get him as Giroud made it clear he did not want another season on the bench and that was before Arsenal signed Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.

How Neymar transfer from Barcelona to PSG can HELP Arsenal

The transfer of the Brazil international star Neymar from FC Barcelona to PSG has quickly become the most talked about and sensational transfer of a summer of big signings and Arsene Wenger has already had his say about the deal and how it shows the crazy nature of the modern game, but maybe he should be pleased because I think it could turn out to be a big help to Arsenal for a number of reasons.

Arsenal CAN sign Lemar!! As long as Monaco get Alexis Sanchez

To be perfectly honest I do not think this would be the worst of outcomes for Arsenal in the ongoing transfer sage of our Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, because seeing him sign for the French club AS Monaco would mean that he was not joining one of the rival Premier League clubs like Chelsea or Man City that are keen on him.

He would not even be strengthening a club with realistic Champions League trophy hopes like PSG, so as options go Monaco is not a bad one for Arsenal. The latest news reported by Metro is that the French Ligue 1 champions want us to include Alexis Sanchez in any deal to bring their young French winger Thomas Lemar the other way.

Will Arsenal have to sell after striker hands in transfer request?

Handing in a formal transfer request is usually the last act of a player desperate to move away from their current club and that is just what Arsenal have been hit with from the wantaway striker Lucas Perez, who the Gunners only signed a year ago for £17 million.

Arsene Wenger has already admitted that he might have to sell the Spaniard because of the number of players competing for the Arsenal forward positions, but the Frenchman does not want to make too much of a loss and was ho9lding out for something like £13 million according to a Metro report.

Alexis returns with transfer request to force Arsenal exit?

The good news for Arsenal fans is that the main man Alexis Sanchez has actually touched down in London once again after his return to training after an extended summer break because of his and Chile’s appearance in the final of the Confederates Cup was delayed due to a bout of illness.

But just as that illness has raised questions about the striker’s desire to quit the club he signed for from La Liga’s Barcelona a few years ago, there are rumours circulating that Alexis has returned to England with the intention of forcing Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to sell him by handing in a transfer request, according to a report by Metro.

Alexis Sanchez set to force transfer from Arsenal?

He did not have to say anything about the situation at Arsenal and whether he would be signing a new contract, seeing out the final year of his current deal or securing a transfer away from north London during the summer transfer window, but Alexis Sanchez chose to give his thoughts on the matter to the football media in Chile.

Not only do the striker’s comments reported by Metro tell us that Alexis certainly wants to say goodbye to Arsenal this summer, it also suggests to me that he may start trying to force the hand of Arsene Wenger to sell him.

Lemar’s demands to seal transfer from Monaco to Arsenal?

It is being reported that the Arsenal transfer target Thomas Lemar is ready for a bust up with his current club AS Monaco over the feeling that the French Ligue 1 club are standing in the way of the 21-year old sealing his dream transfer and coming to work with Arsene Wenger in north London.

This could be great news for the Gunners after Monaco have apparently three offers from us already, with Arsene Wenger starting at around £30 million and with our latest bid thought to be about £45 million. The Sun is reporting that it is not so much about the price being right for their 21-year old winger but rather that they do not want to lose yet another of their title winning team following the departure of Bakayoko to Chelsea and Silva to Man City.

Mahrez to force Arsenal transfer after Foxes leave him fuming?

When Arsenal tried to sign Riyad Mahrez last summer the Algerian international star had just played a major part In Leicester City shocking the football world and being crowned the English Premier League champions, so it was not hard to understand why they wanted to keep him.

Despite the lure of big money and a move to London with Arsenal Mahrez agreed to stay with Leicester and help them in their first Champions League campaign, thereby disappointing Arsene Wenger and us Arsenal fans, but I think we all respected his decision as well.
