Bad news for Giroud as Arsenal plan another striker transfer

The Arsenal and France international centre forward Olivier Giroud is already struggling to get a start this season, at club level anyway as he seems to still be in favour with his national coach Didier Deschamps. The problem Giroud has in north London, though, is that the current first choice centre forward Alexis Sanchez is playing so well that Arsene Wenger really has no option but to keep starting him.

Giroud has done brilliantly in recent weeks coming off the bench but even his place there could soon be in danger if the recent Arsenal transfer rumours are right. Already this week the Gunners have been linked with moves for two different strikers in the January transfer window.

Arsenal to lose TWO transfer targets to EPL rivals?

With results and performances starting to get better for Arsenal, the manager’s claim the other day that the Gunners should not be written out of the race for the English Premier League title just yet is not looking quite as blindly optimistic as before.

And with the Champions League and FA cup trophies to play for as well, Arsenal fans will still be hoping for another piece of silverware to celebrate at the end of the season. But Arsene Wenger will also know that a key signing or two in the January transfer window will go a long way to helping to achieve that goal.

If it takes Podolski to get Draxler, should Arsenal do it?

Reports coming out of the transfer gossip columns suggests a new turn in the tables for Arsenal’s interest in young German international Julian Draxler. Draxler has been linked with the Gunners for a substantial amount of the January transfer window and before, but as of yet nothing on the subject seems to have changed. But with less than 10 days now remaining in the window, Arsenal fans will be desperately hoping Arsene Wenger can pull off another big money deal, even if it follows the fashion of the summer 2013 deadline day.

Schalke star Draxler hints at imminent Arsenal transfer!!

If you watched the international friendly game of England vs Germany then you may not have seen much of Julian Draxler apart from when the youngster made his way onto the pitch. However let me reassure you that this young German international is well on his way to greatness and has been labelled as one of the game’s most upcoming gems for some time now.

Interestingly in regards to Draxler, he has been linked with a move to Arsenal several times already in his career and although it may seem natural considering every young player usually ends up being linked with the Gunners, there is something different about this case because Draxler continues to talk about Arsenal on every opportunity he gets.

Arsenal transfer boost from Draxler but Price is too high…. as usual

Arsenal have been linked with a lot of players in the build-up to the final week of the summer transfer window, as Arsene Wenger looks around the market for a lot of players, and although the Real Madrid players in Benzema, Di Maria, Ozil and Casillas clearly stand out the most, one story that has developed a lot over the past week is Arsenal’s enquiry for Julian Draxler.

For those of you that aren’t aware, Draxler is supposed to be the biggest young talent in world football right now. Forget Jack Wilshere and Mario Gotze, Julian Draxler is meant to have hit the same heights as Real Madrid superstar Cristano Ronaldo, when he was 19.

These 3 signings in 3 days – Can Arsenal Do It?

As I write this, there are only 3 days left in the window and aside from Arsenal’s interest in Draxler last night, there’s nothing else going on at the club, looking in from the outside. Maybe they are being super secretive. I was hoping we’d bring in 5 proper signings at the beginning of the week and with every passing day, my hopes are dwindling. However, we still can bring in players for 3 positions of sufficient quality. Here are my suggestions:

Just how realistic are Arsenal transfer links with Draxler and Kalou?

Arsenal have been linked with a whole host of players over the course of this summer, from the likes of Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria and Mesut Ozil, all the way down to some unknown French midfielder from Ligue 2 side Angers FC, but the recent rumours that stand out from the others are links for both Julian Draxler and Salomon Kalou.

Now firstly, the main suggested players still feature the quadruple of Real Madrid players we seem to have an interest in, in Karim Benzema, Mesut Ozil, Angel Di Maria and Iker Casillas. All would be fantastic signings and imagine if we brought all four into the club by the end of the window.
