Mr Consistent wants to finish career at Arsenal…

Monreal wants a contract extension at Arsenal!

Whilst the club seems to be surrounded by transfer speculation of potential incoming players, one player who already plays for the Arsenal has announced he wants a new contract to stay longer with the Gunners!

Nacho Monreal has improved massively these past two seasons and is now known as Arsenal’s Mr Consistent. Monreal has commanded the left back position so impressively that Gibbs, who was supposed to be the next Ashley Cole for Arsenal, no longer gets a look in at all. Monreal has improved so much in his time at the club, since joining from La Liga side Malaga in January 2013 and is now surely one of the first names on the teamsheet.

Arsenal star tells Wenger NOT to make big transfer splash

Whether Arsene Wenger manages to lead Arsenal to the Premier League title or not at the end of this season, the chances are that the fans will be hoping and demanding that the boss does what he has not done in the last couple of transfer windows and spend some serious amounts of money to sign some top class players.

If we win the league then people will say that we have to make the most of being in pot one for the Champions League and make some transfers to really give Europe a good go. If we fail to win the EPL then fans will say this proves that the squad is not good enough and needs an overhaul.

Is language the only thing holding back Arsenal star?

If you ask most Arsenal fans which player they would lke to start in the centre of defence next to Laurent Koscielny against Leicester tomorrow then I reckon the cast proportion would go for Gabriel over Per Mertesacker. Even though the German has huge experience, including the small matter of a World Cup win, and has a great record in partnership with Koscielny at the back, we cannot help but feel nervous about his lack of pace being exposed, especially when you are up against a team like the Foxes that has great pace up front and plays on the counter.

Does 2nd Arsenal transfer bid mean Gibbs is Gunner go?

The Arsenal and England international left back Kieran Gibbs might have been feeling a little bit frustrated and sorry for himself before these Arsenal transfer rumours started hitting the press, although he has showed a strong and professional attitude to not complain and to perform for the Gunners when he does get a chance.

But even though the stats show that Gibbs has played 21 times for Arsenal this season, only two of those were Premier League starts and it is clear that the defender is second choice to his older and more experienced Spanish team mate Nacho Monreal.

YES! Arsenal complete signing of BRILLIANT and crucial defender

It looks as though the battle for places in the Arsenal back four is going to be as hot as ever this season and while that may not be the best of news for the England international left back Kieran Gibbs, it is fantastic news for the Gunners and for us fans and our hopes of finally winning the Premier League again.

There had been a few Arsenal transfer rumours recently suggesting that Gibbs’ rival for the starting line-up, Nacho Monreal, might be tempted to accept a transfer back to play in La Liga, but those fears are now over as Metro reports that the 29-year old has agreed a new contract extension.

Wenger SLAMS Arsenal defending NOT Ospina!

The TV pundits were pulling no punches on the Arsenal and Colombia keeper David Ospina last night, with both Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher not only blaming him for the winning goal scored by Swansea but claiming it as proof that Ospina has not got what it takes to be the Arsenal number one.

Arsene Wenger, however, saw things differently and is clearly keen to stand up for his keeper, as his post match comments on the Arsenal website show. The Frenchman instead suggested that it was the Arsenal defenders who were at fault for failing to deal with a situation the boss called an easy one.

Arsenal preview and starting XI for Burnley with Gibbs IN

Arsenal are looking to continue the remarkable recent run which has seen us overtake both Man United and the reigning champions Man City, while ending the Champions League hopes of Brendan Rodgers and Liverpool. But this is not time for Wenger and the players to pat each other on the backs as Burnley are no mugs.

They are a very hard working, energetic and physical team and Wenger mentioned in the pre-match build up that his players need to cope with that first and foremost before our superior technical skills can come into force.

Arsenal prepare BIG money summer swoop for La Liga star

If there really is truth to this latest Arsenal transfer rumour then it shows us fans a few things. One is that Arsene Wenger has no problems in continuing to spend the big money on the sort of transfer deals that we had not seen for years before the stunning signing of Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

Because £25 million for a defender would represent another break from tradition for the Arsenal boss and that is what a Metro report claims that we will pay Madrid for another of their stars Fabio Coentrao in the summer.

Arsenal boss ready for defender transfer NOW!

We are all used to Arsene Wenger being very tight lipped and playing his Arsenal transfer cards close to his chest, so when you get a straight answer from the Frenchman it is a pretty good sign. Hopefully that means that the Gunners will soon have another defender in the squad, as Wenger admitted after the weekend win over Stoke City that he was in the market for a defensive transfer.

As reported by Arsenal.com, the boss revealed his intent to move for a defender in the transfer markey was strong before the match, so after losing Mathieu Debuchy to a shoulder injury that could keep the French right back out for a while, that need is even more urgent.
