Can we expect another Arsenal v Liverpool thriller?

The Premier League season kicks off in exactly one months time, and we start our campaign with a home tie against Liverpool FC.

The last time the two teams met, it ended with a third equalising goal of the game scored bye Joe Allen, denying the Gunners the full three points they had been hoping for.

The Reds led twice during the first half, only for our side to level the scores four and six minutes later, in what was a highly intense and exciting match-up.

Chelsea now favourites as Arsenal ruled out of Morata signing

Alvaro Morata will not be playing for Arsenal next season, after Real Madrid upped their asking price to £60 Million, which immediately saw Arsenal drop out of the betting in every online sportsbook. Juventus confirmed that Real would be triggering their right to buy-back Alvaro Morata this summer, for a fee believed to be in the region of £25 Million.

Old Lady chief executive Giuseppe Marotta said: “Real Madrid have informed us of their intention to exercise the right to buy back [Morata], we are just waiting for a written offer.”

The Arsenal transfers which you could profit from this summer

Arsenal look likely to enjoy a busy summer of transfers, so we thought we’d give you a brief run-down of how you could make some money out of that in the coming months.

If you do opt to take up one of these bets, you may as well take up a bonus code from one of the best betting sites at toponlinebookies.com. That way you can use the bookies own money to increase your chances!

Two possible exits have been reported in the newspapers in recent months, but you will not get rich off either of these coming true. Oxlade-Chamberlain is most heavily linked with a switch currently, and is currently at evens (2.0) to leave the club before September (SkyBet).

The Arsenal stars I’m backing for Euro 2016

The playing season is over for Arsenal, and it is time to prepare ourselves for the upcoming European Championships, but that doesn’t mean I will be putting my club shirt away for the summer.

Eight of our players have been selected for their respective countries provisional squads for Euro 2016, and I will be keeping a close eye on a number of them for different reasons.

Jack Wilshere is our only star set to grace the England side this summer, and while my priority will be for Jack to return from international duty injury-free, I will of course also be cheering on the Lions. I’m usually one to have a sentimental bet on our side to win the tournament, but the 9/1 (10.0) available is a little short for my liking.

Should Arsenal keep Arsene Wenger as manager for next season?

Arsene Wenger has been a fantastic servant to Arsenal Football Club but is the Frenchman’s time at the club about to come to an end? Wenger has failed to inspire confidence at Arsenal since winning the Premier League back in 2004 but back-to-back FA Cup triumphs in the last two years have helped to ease the pressure on his shoulders.

However, the Gunners are on the verge of a trophy-less season and fans are rightfully angry at the lack of action taken by both the club and its manager. Wenger just doesn’t seem to have what it takes to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title and supporters are the ones to suffer most of all. Wenger still gets paid at the end of the day.

‘Arsenal will spend lots’, but who on? Benzema? Xhaka? Sadiq?

John Hartson has claimed that Arsenal are set to spend heavily this summer, so we thought we’d take a brief look into the latest speculation surrounding the club.

The former Arsenal striker claimed that Wenger knows that his time is running out to add any more Premier League titles to his record, and will invest in the close-season in order to try and achieve that.
One regular transfer target whose name gets brought up every summer is Karim Benzema, and this year will be no different. His club Real Madrid are being linked with a move to sign either Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Robert Lewandowski, which is said to free up the Frenchman’s signature, and of course, we are lining up a deal… Unfortunately we all know that Wenger is more likely to milk a Bingo bonus then splash the cash on this necessary addition.

There is still value to be had in Arsenal’s season

The season is not over yet, and there is plenty of value to be had from our team before it comes to a close. Arsenal have had an upturn in form and confidence in recent weeks, coinciding with the emergence of Alex Iwobi in the first-team and the goalscoring return of Danny Welbeck.

Four of our five remaining games are against teams in the lower half of the table, and you could add their current league positions to total a whopping 65, proving just how strong our end of season should be.

Arsenal line-up £10M bid to beat Man United to defender’s signature

Arsenal are ready to splash out £10 Million on signing Leicester City left-back Jeffrey Schlupp, according to the Express.

The 22 year-old has been an impressive performer for the Foxes this term, and is being lined up by Manchester United to cover the loss of Luke Shaw to injury.

We are looking to beat them to the punch however, by lining up a £10 Million bid to bring him to North-London instead.

The Ghana international is adept at playing at both left-back and left-midfield, and would be a welcome addition to our squad, especially as we are suspect to injuries on occasion.

Fabregas NOT coming back to Arsenal

Former Gunner and Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been rumoured with a return to England this sumer, with both Arsenal and Manchester United interested in the Spaniard. However after a saga of rumours that have been ongoing for well over a week now, Fabregas has confirmed that no only have no club spoken with him, but also that he has no intentions to leave the Spanish Champions.

Fabregas said; “People talk a lot but the truth is that no-one has spoken with me. I want to triumph in Barcelona, that club is my home and I always dreamed of playing there, so I will try and succeed there as long as I can.”

Have Arsenal sealed the deal for prolific striker?

It looks as though Arsenal are in for a busy day as it is now being reported in Spain that Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain is on his way to North London after the two clubs agreed a fee of around £18 Million. It is also being reported by the local media that Higuain and his agent have agreed terms almost immediately after the fee was agreed.
