Should Arsenal bring back Bergkamp as striker coach?

One of the best players to grace the pitch in an Arsenal shirt is Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp. It’s been awhile since we last saw Bergkamp at the club, however is there any chance that he could be in for a return role in the coaching department?

Dennis Bergkamp left the Arsenal as one of the club’s greatest ever players. The Dutchman was one of the most influential and creative players that not just arsenal have seen, but that the Premier League has seen in its entirety. His legendary status therefore obtains much admiration, and players are surely ambitious to play the role that Bergkamp did. He was influential on the pitch as well as more recently off it, with Bergkamp telling Arsenal.com how he teaches youth players, ‘The Arsenal Way.’

End of the line for Arsenal flop?

Arsenal fans were not exactly over the moon when the club announced the transfer of the young French striker Yaya Sanogo in the summer of 2013, as none of us had heard of him and he was not exactly pulling up trees for Auxerre in the French second division.

But despite his struggles to find the back of the net for Arsenal and a few injury setbacks to his career, Sanogo did have some good games and it was starting to look as though Arsene Wenger may have found a gem. After scoring four goals in a game during pre-season, the Frenchman notched his first competitive Gunners goal to help us beat Borussia Dortmund and qualify from our Champions League group.

Arsenal to soon have ‘new Zlatan’ up front?

You have to admire the self confidence of the young France international striker I suppose, as even though he has just been released by Arsenal to go to Holland and play on loan for Ajax, Yaya Sanogo has compared himself to the former Ajax star Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

To be fair to Sanogo, he is only just 22-years old and has plenty of time to hone his game and start scoring the goals that would make the comparison a little less unlikely. He has the stature for it as well, being just an inch shorter than the Swedish international but he could do with bulking up a bit and getting a few tattoos while he is at it.

Barcelona could be poised to poach Vermaelen from Arsenal

According to reports that have persisted with Arsenal in the past and now reappeared across several media outlets today, it seems as if the dominating Spanish club of FC Barcelona are still interested in Thomas Vermaelen despite a poor season from the Belgium international.

Perhaps it’s just because he is Arsenal’s captain and so Barcelona feel it’s necessary to table a bid for the player, like they have done several times in the past, but I honestly find it quite strange to why their interest remains, that is if the reports are deemed to be true in the first place. Vermaelen endured what was his worst season at the club since his arrival in 2009 from Dutch club Ajax.

De Boer: Vertonghen has seen the light!

It has now become clear that Ajax’s defensive star Jan Vertonghen will leave the Eredivisie in the summer, after he has consistently expressed his interest in joining the Premier League.

Ajax’s manager Frank De Boer admits that it will be hard to lose Vertonghen who is now one of the most wanted players on Wenger’s shortlist. According to the Dutchman it will be very hard to replace the Belgian international, but it’s the right move for him.

“Jan has seen the light,” said De Boer. “Not only on the pitch, but away from it.

Brilliant Belgian Star Desperate To Join Arsenal!

The Arsenal transfer target Jan Vertonghen has spoken yet again about his interest in joining the Gunners in the summer if the Premiership side will be able to agree on terms with the club he currently plays for, Ajax.

According to the defensive star he already went to visit Arsenal’s stadium in the second Champions League leg against AC Milan, but he didn’t sign with the Gunners yet and Wenger didn’t speak of any potential deal with Ajax.

“I have instructed my agent carefully. He knows which clubs I want to join, and Arsenal are one of them,” he said.

Bayern Munich Looking To Highjack Arsenal’s Top Deal

With the transfer window now fast approaching the end, rumours have it that German giants Bayern Munich have now set eyes on one of Arsenal’s most precious targets and are going to battle the English club for his signature.

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger admitted interest in Ajax’s player Jan Vertonghen a long time ago and everybody was expecting the Gunners to be the first to feed on the opportunity to transfer the 23-year-old Belgian.

Vertonghen is a very prized possession being able to play as a defensive midfielder, position he covers for the Belgian national squad, as a central defender, role he plays for Ajax, and as a left-back in case he’s needed, all positions on which Wenger wouldn’t mind improving on.
