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?

STUNNING transfer GREAT for Arsenal – NIGHTMARE for Man Utd

Oh Arsenal fans, can you just imagine how much it would wind up our old rivals Man United and how much ammunition it would give Gooners to use on their fans if this Arsenal transfer rumour was to come true. A Metro report claims that it has news from Italy that Arsene Wenger is willing to break the bank to get the France international star Paul Pogba from Juventus this summer.

It is already killing United fans that they lost this brilliant young player to the Italian champions after he came through their academy but decided to leave after Fergie failed to give him the playing opportunities that he was promised. How much worse would it be for them if Pogba was to end up back in the Premier League but as a Gunner rather than a Red Devil?

It would also be a fantastic transfer coup for Arsenal but with the transfer fee being talked about in the region of £80 million, I have to say that I have serious doubts about it happening. At a lower but still substantial fee I could see it happening though, so watch this space.

Can Arsenal really challenge Chelsea, City and United for this superstar?

Everyone single Arsenal fan and his grandmother knows that the Gunners have desperately needed a young, strong defensive midfielder to improve an already promising Arsenal squad, so when we hear that a 21 year-old FRENCH midfielder of the quality of Paul Pogba is available then surely Arsene Wenger must sit up and take notice?

Pogba has recently signed a new contract at Juventus, but nowadays that just means that the price will go up if the player really wants to leave. So it will take an offer of at least £40m to prise the 21-year-old away from Serie A.

But, according to the Express, Arsenal are willing to finally try competing with the Manchester City’s and Chelsea’s of this world and try and persuade Pogba to come to the Emirates.

From the Express:

However, Arsenal will also enter the race to land the former Manchester United youngster if there is any indication he could leave Serie A.

Arsene Wenger is thought to be a huge admirer of his compatriot and Pogba is exactly the sort of player the tactician wants to target with the Gunners’ new spending power.

We all know by now that Arsenal are making so much money now that they can afford to pay up to £42m to get a truly World Class player if they become available, but whether he can persuade Pogba that he is more likely to win trophies with a move to Arsenal is another thing altogether…

Arsenal Transfer rumours latest – Lots of players linked(as usual)

As the media hype begins to build up, Arsenal now have just a week and a half remaining in the transfer window and as of yet there has still been no further additions to the squad. It has left us very bare in terms of squad depth and with other teams improving, Spurs particularly who are supposedly now signing Willian, its worrying times for the Gunners.

But I suppose no additions doesn’t particularly mean no developments or advancements in transfer negotiations and if different reports are believed to be true from the likes of BBC, Sky Sports, ESPN and of course the usual newspapers, then Arsene Wenger has finally pulled his finger out! The other day it was reported on Sky Sports News and BBC Sport that Arsenal were in talks with two clubs regarding players however the players’ identities were not made public knowledge.

It seems that one of those players was Newcastle and French international Yohan Cabaye, who if I’m honest, I’m not overly excited about. I cannot see what he would bring to the Arsenal team apart from being just a player to field if we became desperate. I’m not saying he is a bad player, I just struggle to see his purpose in matches and so I don’t understand what kind of job he could do at Arsenal apart from just be another man out on the pitch or another option on the bench.

Then the other reports suggested that we were also looking at players from England, France and Italy, whilst we are also supposedly in for a Spanish surprise, with Valencia goalkeeper Vicente Guaita. He may not be very well known however he can be an absolute monster in goal and if we can get him for a relatively cheap price then he would be a fantastic coup for the Gunners. Other reports link us with Iker Casillas but come on guys, let’s be serious!

Then from France, I’m guessing the link is possibly still on Yohan Gourcuff, the midfielder from Lyon; however it could also be Mamadou Sakho, who reportedly wants to leave PSG and so would be available for a relatively cheap price. He’d be a nice option in defence and a powerful option should we sign him.

Then lastly we come to Italy and I suppose this coup be the best of the best in terms of what we are linked with here. Juventus’ Paul Pogba is reportedly subject of a £20m bid from Arsenal and so it will be interesting to see if this story develops. He would be a fantastic buy and his versatility would certainly help us out in times like these. Or it could even be Erik Lamela from Roma, who the spuds have been linked with.

Arsenal face a tough task over transfer of Pogba

After two previous attempts by Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager is hoping to make it third time lucky in his efforts to capture the young French midfielder Paul Pogba. Wenger has been alerted to the chance of signing the 20-year old after reports that he is unhappy at Juventus.

Pogba has impressed since moving to the Italian champions on a free transfer last summer from Manchester United. Ferguson was not happy about losing the talented player, although United were themselves accused of dirty dealing when they poached him from the French club Le Havre in 2009. Arsenal wanted him back then and it’s a real shame that United got him because he never got much of a chance and that is why he let his contract run out and joined Juventus.

He has played well in Italy and the Turin club do not want to sell him, but the widespread racist abuse that goes on in Serie A has made Pogba unsettled and think about leaving. The word from Italy, though, is that Juve see him as a long term replacement for Andrea Pirlo and are loath to see him leave.

It is not really a question of money, rather a case of whether Pogba can persuade the club to release him or whether the club can convince him to stick it out. Arsenal and Wenger will be waiting to pounce, but may well be disappointed. We must not wait too long, however, because we need a defensive midfielder desperately. Pogba is said to be a new Patrick Vieira, which would be ideal for us, but if we cannot get him we need somebody else.
