Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

If Arsene Wenger is determined to finally sign a top class defensive midfielder to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January, then it looks like the Frenchman will have to keep looking. Assuming that the recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Sami Khedira would be the player coming to join the Gunners that is.

It was rumoured that Wenger had already reached an agreement with the Germany international over the personal terms of his transfer and that Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker had convinced the central midfielder to snub any attempts by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hijack the deal.

Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.

Time for Arsenal to give up on Ozil? 0

Posted on October 13, 2014 by admin

There is a theory that the Arsenal and Germany international playmaker Mesut Ozil may never play for the Gunners again. According to media reports, the 25-year old is thinking about calling time on his career with Arsenal and leaving the English Premier League altogether.

Ozil is already set to miss two or three months with the knee ligament damage that caused him to be sent home from the current international round of games, so if the Arsenal transfer rumour in the Daily Mail is true, Ozil may have played his last game for Arsenal.

Worth of a Gambling Kingz Review

The chance that Arsene Wenger took when splashing out £16m on Manchester United misfit Danny Welbeck was worthy of a review by the online casino experts at Gambling Kingz but now, after four goals in his first five Arsenal appearances, including a hat-trick in Champions League against Galatasaray, it is starting to look like money well spent.

Wenger NEVER intended to bring Fabregas back to Arsenal! 1

Posted on October 05, 2014 by Patrick

There has much talk about Arsenal’s so-called “first option” on bringing Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates if he ever left Barcelona, but according to this interview with Arsene Wenger in the Telegraph, he did not even consider getting him to rejoin his old team-mates.

Here is a direct quote from the article:

Asked whether a buy-back option in the contract existed, Wenger replied: “Yes.” Asked specifically whether he had decided not to take up that option he also simply said: “Yes.”

DONE DEAL as Arsenal boss confirms striker signing 1

Posted on October 01, 2014 by admin

With Yaya Sanogo still not due to return to action for Arsenal from his hamstring injury until after the international break, Arsene Wenger is keeping his fingers crossed that nothing happens to Danny Welbeck. In fact, the young French striker is a very raw gem that still needs a lot of polishing, so the centre forward position is still a bit light for the Gunners.

As long as Welbeck can stay fit foe the next few months though, we will then have two good options to choose from, with the France international Olivier Giroud due to make his comeback from that freak tibia injury picked up right at the end of the Everton game.

Arsenal in pole position for stunning Reus transfer? 0

Posted on September 25, 2014 by admin

It could be more important than ever for Arsenal to secure a place in the Champions League for next season, especially if the Premier League table at the end of this season has the Gunners sitting above Liverpool and Man United.

That is because it could be the final factor that sees Arsenal beat off the competition from these two BPL rivals for the signature of the talented Germany international forward Marco Reus. According to a Daily Star report, the 25-year old has moved a step closer to an exit from his current club, Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Which of these two DMs will Arsenal sign in January? 1

Posted on September 25, 2014 by admin

Arsene Wenger has suggested that the way for Abou Diaby to resurrect his Arsenal career is to alter his approach to the game slightly, become more disciplined and help the Gunners to fill that difficult defensive midfield gap. But unless the French midfielder has a serious change of luck and his body suddenly becomes able to take regular games, it is not going to be enough for Arsenal.

So when the January transfer window opens, unless Diaby has shown he is able to play week in week out and do the DM job well, Wenger could finally turn to the transfer market to solve the problem and there seem to be two main candidates.

Arsenal to sign Real Madrid star as part of DOUBLE free transfer 0

Posted on September 18, 2014 by admin

Whether Arsene Wenger has been forced to make use of the free transfer system because of the mounting Arsenal injury list, or whether the Frenchman had this idea in mind all the time, I neither know nor care. I just hope that the reports are true.

According to various Arsenal transfer rumours, including the Metro, the defensive crisis at the club has persuaded Wenger that he needs another central defender and there are a few available for free because they are currently without a club.

Former Arsenal star says signings NOT enough for title challenge! 2

Posted on September 08, 2014 by admin

Whatever your thoughts are on how well Arsene Wenger has added to his Arsenal squad during the summer transfer window, and those opinions are widely different among Gooners and will continue to be a major source of argument and discussion as the season rolls on, I think we can all agree on one thing and that is the hope that it is enough to mount a serious title challenge this season.

Former Arsenal and England centre forward Alan Smith, however, thinks that we are all going to be disappointed in that respect again. The 51-year old scored over 100 goals for the Gunners in his time, including the first in that title winning victory at Highbury made famous by the film Fever pitch.
