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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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. ...........Read more
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? ...........Read more
