Arsenal team news with Gibbs captain and Giroud IN against Reading

Arsene Wenger must be feeling pretty confident that his Arsenal team will bounce back from the Premier League draw with Middlesborough to beat Reading in the EFL cup tomorrow. Not only is Le Prof going with a much changed side at the Emirates, he has revealed a lot of the changes that will be made in an Arsenal.com report.

The Gunners boss is going to completely change the back four, with the summer signing Rob Holding to partner Gabriel in the middle and with Carl Jenkinson set for the first game since his long spell out with injury. Kieran Gibbs will be the other full back and just like in the last round of the cup away to Nottingham Forest, the England international defender will captain Arsenal.

Arsenal to SEAL DEAL for brilliant Spanish star

Having really burst on to the scene this season and been rewarded with great praise from the football media, Arsenal have decided that he really is the real deal and are ready to complete a deal to keep our young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin a new long term contract, according to a report in The Mirror.

It might not have happened either, after Arsene Wenger signed the France international Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle in the summer to replace the Man City bound Bacary Sagna, who probably wonders whether he should have stayed. The boss also let Carl Jenkinson go on loan and if he hadn’t, then it might be him rather than Bellerin getting a new deal.

Why Arsenal MUST let this defender leave

Following the rapid progress of Hector Bellerin at Arsenal, there is a lot of speculation in regards to the future of Carl Jenkinson, who was loaned out to West Ham United as a result of Arsenal’s capture of Mathieu Debuchy and Callum Chambers. As a result of the Jenkinson’s promising start to life at Upton Park, several media reports suggest that the Hammers’ boss Sam Allardyce has been in contact with Arsenal in regards to make the loan deal a permanent transfer.

Arsenal new and old to fight for England place! Who will win?

With more injuries than the annual over-90s breakdancing competition, Arsenal fans will be nervously hoping that the upcoming international break does not end up with any more Gunners out of action, but there is nothing that Arsene Wenger can do, except hope that the players who do go manage to play well and come back in rude health.

The England under 21 squad has just been announced by Gareth Southgate and it has thrown up an interesting little situation for Arsenal fans, as our new versatile young defender Calum Chambers has been selected for the first time, despite already having played for the senior England squad.

Wenger reveals why Debuchy is perfect for Arsenal

After making the Arsenal fans wait for well over a week, when the deal was reported to be done and the French right back had already seemed to let slip that he was heading to north London, Arsene Wenger was yesterday finally able to announce that Mathieu Debuchy had signed a long term contract with Arsenal Football Club.

Debuchy is coming in as a direct replacement for our long serving right back, Bacary Sagna, and the two are already very close competitiors for the starting role in the France national side. And it seems to be the fact that Debuchy has very similar attributes in defending, getting forward to help with the attacks, as well as top class experience, that has convinced the Arsenal boss that he is our man.

Arsenal ready to beat off late PSG interest to seal Debuchy transfer

Now that the France national team has been knocked out of the World Cup, Arsenal fans are hoping that at least one of their players will soon be on their way to the Emirates, as the Gunners have been linked with Karim Benzema, Loic Remy and the two Mathieu’s; Valbuena and Debuchy.

From the latest transfer rumours, it looks like the 28-year old right back is the most likely. The fact that he has edged our former defender, Bacary Sagna, out of the France starting line-up should tell you all you need to know about the quality of Debuchy, so it is no surprise that he is looking to move up from Newcastle and the fact that Arsenal have our usual Champions League place means we have seen off interest from Tottenham.

Sagna scares Arsenal fans with exit talk!!

Arsenal have seen many players from their successful squad from the previous decade move on from the club, with Robin Van Persie being the last man that was a winner in the Arsenal squad. Such players like Theo Walcott, Tomas Rosicky and Bacary Sagna have all been with the club for quite some time now, however none of them have been successful with Arsenal as of yet and it’s a great shame considering their dedication to the club, especially the latter two who are coming towards the end of their respective careers.
