Arsenal boss looking for weakness as Man Utd host Man City

The Manchester derby is clearly the big match of the Premier League weekend, but Arsene Wenger has got his own things to worry about as he prepares the Arsenal squad for the visit of Southampton to the Emirates stadium today.

It is a game that the Gunners need to win and one from which we expect to take all three points, especially aftyer their slow start to life under the new manager Claude Puel. But the fact that he knows Wenger from his time in charge of Monaco may just give Puel a helping hand and we cannot afford to take this game lightly.

Man United aiming to hijack Arsenal’s top target

Manchester United are reportedly claimed to be keen on signing Borussia Dortmund’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who Arsenal have been linked with since the end of the season.

The midfielder has been hugely impressive in the last 12 months, scoring 23 competitive goals and assisting 30 more.

He has since refused to sign a new contract with Dortmund, and is firmly expected to leave the club this summer, with his club believed to be ready to listen to offers.

Arsenal and Chelsea were previously said to be battling it out for his signature, but now it is Manchester United who are claimed to be making their own move to sign the goalscorer.

Is Mourinho just winding up Wenger with Welbeck rumours?

Welbeck wanted by former employers?

Danny Welbeck may have only made a hatful of appearances for the Gunners in his two seasons at the club, however according to a few reports, his former employers, Manchester United, could be interested in re-signing their former prodigy. To emphasise the point it appears that the bookies have slashed the odds on him going back to Old Trafford. If you want to take the tip, then you should check out bestbettingsites.org.uk so at least you could use the bookies bonuses to make the bet rather than use your own money!

BOOM! One Arsenal star beats WHOLE Chelsea team!!

This latest revelation showing how amazingly well Arsenal have been doing when compared to our big London rivals and the reigning Premier League title holders Chelsea this season is sure to help the miserable one Jose Mourinho to crack a smile and put his troubles to one side, NOT.

So it turns out, as revealed in a Metro report, that not only have the Blue boys been struggling to regain their form from the last campaign; with their creative stars like Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Oscar all looking like they are different players and failing to have much of a say in matches, but the whole Chelsea team have been out performed by a single Arsenal star.

Wenger – Costa always gets away with it

Chelsea’s Diego Costa wound up Gabriel yesterday to get the Arsenal defender sent off, but Arsene Wenger thinks that it was wrong for Costa to unpunished for his actions. Wenger said: “Costa can do what he wants and he stays on while everyone who responds to him has to be sent off.

“I think his behaviour is unacceptable. Look at the pictures and what he does to Laurent Koscielny. He pushes him down and hits him in the face before the throw in. And he always gets away with it. It’s surprising.

Arsenal COMPLETE transfer but is it Cech MATE?

Only time will tell just how much Arsenal will benefit from the signing of the Czech Republic number one Petr Cech from Chelsea, but if the thoughts of Jose Mourinho and John Terry are anything to go by, it could be just the chess move that the Gunners needed to capture the king of our London rivals.

Mourinho was quite clear that he did not want this transfer to go through and would have blocked his experienced keeper from joining such a close rival if it was up to him, just as he did with the proposed Demba Ba transfer. Terry has played in front of our new signing for almost his whole club career and he thinks that Arsenal could have just gained ourselves 12-15 points with this transfer move.

Arsenal ready to CONFIRM transfer after Cech medical

Any lingering doubts about Arsenal being able to complete the transfer of the Czech Republic international Petr Cech will soon be over once and for all. I for one had my doubts about Chelsea agreeing to the deal and have had a suspicion that Jose Mourinho would get his way and veto the move of his veteran keeper just as he did with Demba Ba a year or so ago.

But with the Evening Standard reporting that the transfer fee has been agreed at around £11 million and the keeper’s personal terms are all sorted, with Cech set to earn around £100,000 a week, the 33/year old is at the Emirates today to complete his medical.

Playing Promise has SEALED Cech´s transfer to Arsenal

It looks like Arsene Wenger will soon be able to give the Arsenal fans something to cheer about in the summer transfer window, perhaps before it even opens officially on the 1st of July. Given that the Czech Republic international number one is currently with a club in the same league as Arsenal, he would be able to complete his move now anyway.

According to a report in The Mirror today, the final stumbling block to the Gunners getting this top keeper from our Premier League rivals Chelsea has been removed and it has nothing to do with the wishes of Jose Mourinho to veto it.

PSG and Rosicky CONFIRMED Cech to Arsenal transfer?

This was supposed to be the week that the Arsenal transfer target Petr Cech was due for a meeting with the top brass at Chelsea to sort out his future. Despite his club manager Jose Mourinho being very clear about not wanting the talented and experienced keeper to join a Premier League rival, it is still thought that Roman Abramovich will stand by his decision not to block Cech’s transfer to thank him for a decade or so of sterling service.

Arsenal already `in transfer talks´ and on verge of SEALING DEAL

It is shaping up to be the most enjoyable and optimistic summer for Arsenal fans in many a year. Arsene Wenger and the Gunners are on the point of securing a higher than usual finish in the Premier League and lifting the FA cup for the second season in a row and the boss looks keen to push on even further and give us Gooners a title winning team with some great transfer business.
