Top boss tells Arsenal to forget Champions League

We all know that Arsenal are right up the creek after losing the first two games in our Champions League group to the unfancied Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos from Greece. But the nature of football being what it is and Arsenal having pulled off bigger comebacks in the past, Arsenal fans are still hoping that we might actually have a paddle.

It might be a small paddle but if used right it could just get the Gunners back down the proverbial creek. Not according to Carlo Ancelotti though, and this top manager does know what he is talking about after winning the European cup three times as a manager and twice as a player.

Poor form means Arsenal ARE prepared to dump Wenger

If Arsene Wenger can not get Arsenal firing on all cylinders soon, the Frenchman might find his long reign as manager of the Gunners finally coming to an end, according to a Metro report.

Expectations were high at the club after Wenger was given some serious money to spend to build on last season’s FA cup success and having led the Premier League for longer than any other team. But Arsenal have failed to live up to those expectations so far and even though the long list of injuries has not helped, it is the manager that takes the blame in the end.

Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal

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.

Real Madrid agree that Arsenal-target Morata could leave (but only for a year)

There have been hundreds of Arsenal rumours linking us with a move for the Real Madrid youngster Alvaro Morata, but Los Blancos have been very reluctant to allow such a promising talent to move away from the Bernabeau, unless it is simply a temporary solution.

There have been suggestions that could join Arsenal, but give Madrid a buy-back option for the next two years, but now it seems that the Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti will be pleased to let him go for one season to give him some regular football, but it doesn´t sound like he will sanction a permanent move.

Forget Benzema, but Arsenal could get Di Maria from Real Madrid

It came as an exciting bit of news to hear that Arsenal are making moves for both Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria. Both of them are top players and I would love to see them here but I do not think there is a realistic chance of signing Benzema at the moment.

As all Arsenal fans will remember with a grudge, we have previously missed out on Gonzalo Higuain who was at Real Madrid. Napoli stole him out of our hands and that left Real Madrid with one less striker.

Arsenal abandon Higuain transfer after Real Madrid demand £37m

The latest development in the Gonzalo Higuain saga is Real Madrid are apparently demanding £37M for him now after weeks of messing around in the negotiations that should have been sorted and sealed when a £23M deal was agreed. If Real Madrid are going to continue to string Arsenal along then I honestly think it’s time to give up and look elsewhere, or just focus on signing Luis Suarez and spend the rest of the money on the rest of the team.

Higuain could sign for Arsenal next week after £25m bid

It appears that Arsene Wenger has made his mind up and is determined to sign Gonzalo Higuain for Arsenal. The Frenchman is set to abandon his usual way of eking out every morsel of value in his transfer dealings, by meeting the £25 million valuation put on Higuain by his club Real Madrid.

According to Marca, The Spanish giants are sick of selling low and buying high, so this offer will put us firmly in the driving seat in the race for the Argentinean international. Madrid know that Higuain wants to go and they would probably sell him for less, but that would mean Arsenal haggling and counter haggling with Juventus and we could end up losing him and having to go back for somebody else.
