Which of these TOP transfer targets will win Arsenal the title?

There is a very exciting report out there for Arsenal fans which, if it turns out to be true, could be the turniong point in the club’s fortunes that we have all been waiting for. To be fair to Arsene Wenger he did an incredible job of keeping us in the Champions League on a very tight budget but the Arsenal fans want more than that now.

The boss did give us two FA cups in a row to end the long trophy drought and he has made a few big and effective signings like the transfer of Petr Cech, Alexis Sanchez and Ozil but it still looks like we are short of the big target of winning the Premier League.

And according to The Sun the Arsenal board apparently realise that this is what the fans demand and so they are going to put pressure on the manager to make sure that he does bring in some big name players to help us challenge next season, with some of the names mentioned being Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Kroos, Higuain and John Stones.

Which of these players would help to make Arsenal champions again?

Arsenal hit transfer after burners with HUGE striker bid

Because of Chile facing Argentina in the Copa America final last weekend, Arsenal will have to get the new season underway without the star man of last year Alexis Sanchez. And if the latest of the summer Arsenal transfer rumours are correct, then Arsene Wenger could be without two of the biggest names in the Arsenal squad.

Because a Metro report claims that the Frenchman has made the Napoli and Argentina front man Gonzalo Higuain his priority transfer target. The report also claims that the Gunners have already made his Serie A side an offer of over £40 million, although that and the news that it was rejected seems a little hard to believe.

We know from transfer windows that Wenger is a fan of the former Real Madrid star, but just how much of a fan we should soon find out. Is Higuain the answer for Arsenal?

Arsenal lose ANOTHER transfer target to Man United

After the news in the football media this week that the long term Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin was close to joining our Premier League rivals Manchester United instead, Arsenal fans will be gutted if Louis van Gaal were to beat Arsene Wenger to yet another quality player.

But that is what is about to happen according to a Metro report. The player in question is the Napoli and Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain and the report claims that he has already agreed the personal terms of his possible move to Old Trafford.

Not only would this make two signing lost to Man United, it would be the second time that the Gunners have missed out on Higuain after we were said to be on the verge of getting him from Real Madrid until the Serie A club stepped in with a better offer.

Is it not about time that Arsenal started winning the occasional transfer tussle?

Arsenal to sign ONE of these two strikers! But which?

Arsene Wenger seems to be in agreement with the former Arsenal and France super striker Thierry Henry, at least where it concerns the Gunners’ need to sign another striker in the summer transfer window to replace or compete with our big centre forward Olivier Giroud.

According to the Arsenal transfer rumours, it looks like our manager has narrowed his striker transfer targets down to a shortlist of two and he appears top be trying to get a deal done nice and early. The fact that both Jackson Martinez and Gonzalo Higuain are about to head off to Chile to play for their countries in the Copa America might be the reason behind Wenger’s urgency but he does not seem to have made up his mind.

The Mirror is reporting that we have had a first transfer bid of almost £30 million for Higuain turned down by Napoli, who want closer to £40 million. Porto, meanwhile, cannot stop us activating the release clause of around £25 million for the Colombian star and may even accept less.

According to a Metro report the Portuguese club have already accepted the inevitable and have given Jackson permission to talk to Arsenal, so unless the Serie A club stop playing so hard to get, will it be the Porto man coming to north London? Would you be happy with that Gooners?

Arsenal to FINALLY complete SUPER striker transfer?

It was a big blow to Arsene Wenger´s transfer plans a couple of years ago, if you believe the majority of the Arsenal transfer rumours at the time, and it was almost a disaster when Gonzalo Higuain scored for his Italian club Napoli against the Gunners and nearly knocked us out of the Champions League.

But the club´s attempts to challenge Juventus in Serie A has never really materialised and their European adventure is turning sour as well. Having just been knocked out of the Europa League at the semi-final stage by Dnipro, Bapoli are almost certain to miss out on the UCL next season with three games left to make up a six point gap.

And that has led Higuain to start looking for a move away this summer, as reported by Metro. Arsenal will have to beat other clubs including Juventus and Real Madrid apparently, but Wenger is said to be determined to finally get his hands on this top striker who could be one of the final pieces in place for Arsenal to win the Premier League.

Arsenal hit by another transfer snub from super striker

It looks like it might be time for Arsenal to forget about this particular transfer target. The last time the Gunners were said to be on the verge of completing the transfer of Gonzalo Higuain, it was supposed to be a done deal and the then Real Madrid front man was on his way.

But as we know, the Argentina international opted for Napoli in Serie A instead, where Rafa Benitez was spending money like it was water in an attempt to challenge the dominance of Juventus in Italy. But the former Liverpool boss has failed.

Napoli have not even made the Champions League this season and were soundly beaten by Yong Boys of Berne in the Europa League this week. So it is no surprise that reports from Italy claimed that Higuain was not all that happy and was prepared to finally become a Gunner.

However, a Mirror report now claims that his brother has rubbished this claim and declared that the striker is going nowhere. Your loss Gonzalo…

Liverpool bid £31m to hijack Arsenal’s star striker transfer

Arsenal fans have been able to have a good laugh at their Premier League rivals from the red side of Liverpool this season. Gooners have not always had much reason to smile about the transfer side of things in recent years, but that seems to be changing with Arsene Wenger being given some decent money to spend.

And the Frenchman really dodged a bullet this summer it seems, while his Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers poked his head over the trenches and took one full in the face, by signing the unpredictable and unreliable Italian striker Mario Balotelli.

It was thought that Arsenal were set to sign the controversial player from AC Milan, until Wenger came to his senses and dropped the transfer like a hot coal. And now it looks like the Liverpool boss is regretting his decision to take a chance on the former Man City man, according to a Metro report.

But it could also wipe the smiles off Arsenal faces, as Rodgers is now hoping to beat the Gunners to the signature of Napoli and Argentina star Gonzalo Higuain to replace Balotelli. And the bid of over £30 million they are preparing is more than Wenger is willing to pay, so once again it looks like Arsenal will lose out on Higuain because another club is willing to pay more.

Sensational Serie A striker set for Arsenal switch in January?

If the Arsenal transfer rumours last summer were anything to go by, Arsene Wenger would already have signed the Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain. It was claimed that an agreement was in place between him and the Gunners but it was hijacked at the last minute when Napoli offered Real Madrid more than we were apparently willing to pay.

But the transfer of the star striker to north London could finally be set to happen, according to a Metro report. The paper claims that the Arsenal boss is determined to finally get his man and is ready with a huge offer to convince his Serie A club to sell.

Higuain has apparently moved to the top of our transfer list after the former Napoli striker Edinson Cavani was ruled out by his current club PSG. And if the rumours about our interest in Higuain is true, surely he would be keen as Rafa Benitez has failed to turn Napoli into real competition for Juventus and have dropped out of the Champions League.

Is Higuain finally set to become an Arsenal player and if so, whose place is most at risk, Welbeck or Giroud?

Arsenal’s Morata transfer at risk from Napoli and Madrid

Alvaro Morata is reported as being one of the top transfer targets for Arsenal this summer. The under 21 international for Spain is widely believed to have accepted that his future lies away from the Santiago Bernabeu, despite having been a Real Madrid fan since childhood and being desperate to make his mark there.

Even though the Spanish giants sold Higuain and Callejon last season, Morata’s chances have become even fewer and if it was not for the injury to his young team mate Jese Rodriguez, Morata would hardly have featured in La Liga. As it is, the young striker has only managed the equivalent of four full games, so his return of six goals is very impressive.

Perhaps that is why, according to Goal.com, Real Madrid are preparing to offer Morata a new contract to persuade him to stay. It is not the money for Morata, though, it is the lack of game time. If the rumours about them going for Luis Suarez are true, Morata will have even less chance of playing so, unless they can promise him more time on the pitch, he will probably decide to leave.

But even that does nbot mean that he will be coming to Arsenal, because our transfer tormentors of last summer, Napoli, are also keen on the 21-year old, and they proved with the Higuain deal that they are not afraid to spend money. Do you think that Arsenal are going to lose out?

Higuain and Reina thinking they should have joined Arsenal?

It’s a well-known fact that Arsenal were on the lookout to improve their squad in the goalkeeping area this summer, with several big name players such as Iker Casillas, Federico Marchetti and Rene Adler. In the end Arsenal brought in the loan signing of Emiliano Viviano from Serie B side Palermo and although he isn’t on the same level as any of those mentioned before, he is certainly still a good goalkeeper. One goalkeeper we were linked to that isn’t perhaps quite up to scratch is Barcelona’s Victor Valdes, who will leave the Camp Nou this summer. He is arguably one of the world’s most error prone goalkeepers, but is his fellow countryman Pepe Reina on the same scale?

It’s the man Pepe that is our focal point out of all of this and it’s been revealed that throughout all of these goalkeeping targets, one that did come close to being pulled off was Pepe Reina from Liverpool. Liverpool were willing to let the Spaniard go last summer and although Arsenal were in for him, he chose Napoli instead. Now, he is licking his wounds after Arsenal totally dominated what was expected to be a highly contested match.

Reina told the media, in an interview picked up by the Sun newspaper: “The interest of Arsenal in my services? Now I think only of Napoli. But to come back to England with Napoli against Arsenal in London is special. It’s a joy to meet Cazorla, Arteta and Monreal. They are my friends but rivals on the pitch. This is a test of fire for us. But Gonzalo Higuain and Jose Callejon have adapted to us well and are really performing — especially Gonzalo, he is sensational in front of goal. Arsenal are top of the Premier League but we are second in Serie A — and it looks like developing into a big season for us. There is no clear favourite in this game. We’re very confident but it’s a tough group and an away point would mean a very positive result for us.”

Alongside Reina, another player who could have been lining up against the Gunners last night is long term summer target Gonzalo Higuain. The striker looked forlorn as he watched the Gunners tear his new team a new hole, and I wonder if he was thinking what could have been had he moved to North London.
