Chelsea star’s snub to spark Arsenal title challenge

When the Arsenal players next kick off in the Premier League we could start the game six points off the league leaders, as Chelsea face Man City away in the early Saturday match. The best thing for the Gunners would be a draw but failing that I think it would be better for Man City in order to halt the recent momentum of Chelsea.

There is another reason for Arsenal fans and our players to want Chelsea to falter as well, because their Belgian international star Eden Hazard was reported by Metro this week dismissing Arsenal as a serious rival to his club for the EPL title this season.

Can Alexis Sanchez beat Eden Hazard to the PFA award?

Eight consecutive victories have put Arsenal on course to not only secure a top four finish and Champions League football for the eighteenth consecutive season under Arsene Wenger, but also finish runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League. An FA Cup Final at Wembley against Aston Villa may be the icing on the cake for the Gunners who have been in imperious form, playing the wonderful free-flowing football that makes them one of the best teams in Europe. Wenger will point to a collective team effort for Arsenal enjoying an excellent campaign, but there can be no doubt that Alexis Sanchez has been a revelation in his first season at the club and been the main reason behind the club’s success. The Chilean star has been in fantastic form all season, with Sanchez not only deservedly nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, but also included in Bookies.com team of the season and many other Premier League XIs. Eden Hazard may be the only player that stands towards Sanchez and a crowning achievement to wrap up a superb season for the former Barcelona man; it promises to be a close call between two players who have been instrumental in leading their respective team to glory.

Arsenal risking top transfer target as Wenger penny pinches

There is interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe, apparently, so when the Arsenal transfer rumours last week suggested that the Gunners were on the verge of sealing the deal for the summer transfer of Paulo Dybala, the talented young striker making waves with Palermo in Serie A, it looked like we had pulled off a real coup.

But the deal is now on hold, according to a Metro report, after Arsene Wenger backed away from meeting the Serie A club´s valuation of a bit less than £30 million. Instead the Frenchman is trying to screw the price down in order to bring the player dubbed the new Sergio Aguero to north London.

Hazard thinks Ronaldo, Messi, and erm, Gervinho, are world’s best!

After teasing media and fans alike over his prospective club destination in the off-season, new Chelsea recruit Eden Hazard has made another quick move to the top of the tabloids with a revelation that former Lille teammate Gervinho is his footballing inspiration.

Proving that he can contest Mario Balotelli in a competition for stories which provide the most laughs, 21-year old Hazard compared the Arsenal flop to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, whose videos Hazard watches in hopes of emulating them, adding that the Ivorian is the best player player he has ever played with.

Arsenal don’t need Hazard – We’ve got Gervinho!

I am sick of reading about Eden Hazard. It has been the most over-reported story of the summer, but it looks like he has made his mind up and we can all forget about it. Chelsea, obviously, are expecting big things form the Belgian international but he has claimed that Arsenal have a better player in Gervinho, The Sun reports.

The two players were team mates for two seasons at Lille, helping the club win the French league title. Gervinho was employed as a striker/winger and scored 15 league goals that season.

Eden Hazard to reveal new club by June 2nd – Are Arsenal Still In The Chase?

Negotiations over the sale of Eden Hazard seem to be continuing, but nobody knows anymore whether Arsenal are still in the fight for the Belgian international or not.

All we can say at the moment is that three teams are battling it out for Hazard, but unfortunately for the Gunners, despite Wenger’s huge interest in him, it seems that those three clubs are City, United and Chelsea, although no-one knows for sure.

Hazard’s agent John Bico stated that it’s only a matter of time until the switch will be made, but didn’t shed any light on to where the player’s destination might be.

Arsenal Transfer News Betting – Llorente, Van Persie, Huntelaar, Hazard and Podolski

The betting spree continues even though the Premiership has ended and the EURO has yet to start. Gunner fans can still earn some money if they’re inspired enough, as a few transfers are rumoured around the Gunners headquarters.

Fernando Llorente
A more than idealistic transfer, Llorente’s move to Arsenal has a 33 odd (which is sure to bring a fortune), but will probably never come true as clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona or City are roaring to take him.

Can Arsenal win a bidding war for Eden Hazard?

The fight for Eden Hazard’s signature goes on in England, as English giants Man United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City are all tracking the attacking midfielder.

Man City favourites to sign Van Persie, while Man Utd lead race for Eden Hazard

The transfer rumours which are wildly linking Arsenal’s striker Robin Van Persie with a move away from the club aren’t going unnoticed by the biggest British bookies on the internet, and you can earn quite an impressive amount of money if you’ll be able to predict his next destination. Our American readers can try this link for US friendly sportsbooks.

The trophy drought at Arsenal has convinced Robin to refuse to hold any contract negotiations until the summer transfer window opens. Many think that this is just a way to motivate Wenger into bringing reinforcements at the club, and it’s believed that Eden Hazard is the biggest target for Arsenal’s manager.

While a destination has yet been revealed, Lille’s president Michel Seydoux stated that the club can’t hold the attacking midfielder any longer and that they need to finally listen to offers coming in for his services.
