Arsenal boss targets group win AND long run in Champions League

The main reason for Arsenal wanting to finish on top of the Champions League group, apart from ending the frustration of coming second for six years in a row, is to be in pot one when the draw for the knockout stage is made and hopefully get an easier route through to the latter stages.

The Gunners have already secured a place in the next round after Mesut Ozil hit that late winner away to Ludogorets Razgrad, but Arsene Wenger has called on his players to ensure that we do not mess it up at home to the French champions PSG, with any win enough to guarantee us top spot.

Arsenal IN and Man City OUT but will Ibrahimovic become a Gunner?

There have already been a fair few Arsenal transfer rumours linking the PSG and Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a summer move to the Premier League and with former Arsenal players urging Arsene Wenger to make the superstar striker one of his priority signings.

But there was also a theory that Wenger would not want to pay any one player a lot more than the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil and also that Zlatan’s well publicised ego might have put the Frenchman off. Not according to The Sun though, as they are reporting the news, which comes straight from the horse’s mouth as it were, or the mouth of his agent anyway.

Arsenal to miss Ibrahimovic transfer as Man Utd plan MEGA money offer

Despite the reports that Arsenal is the preferred destination of the Swedish international striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as long as his current club PSG do not decide to extend his contract at the end of the season, it does not necessarily mean that the brilliant striker will be playing for the Gunners next season.

Ibra has already talked up a move to the English Premier League but Arsenal are not the only club that would like him by any means. One of the others is the Manchester United of Louis van Gaal that is currently fighting to get into the top four and gain a place in the Champions League for next year.

Arsenal to seal last gasp transfer with STUNNING striker signing?

As per usual the Arsenal manager has been saying both before and during the current transfer window that he was open to the signing of top players if only he could find them, but try as he might he just could not identify any available players that would improve the squad.

Maybe he has been right as well, but now that the Metro is reporting that Arsenal are one of a number of clubs to have been offered the PSG and Uruguay centre forward Edinson Cavani, that could well have changed.

Brilliant Brazil star urges Arsenal to make transfer bid

If Arsenal do complete the signing of this Brazil international during the January transfer window, it could spell bad news for the current Gunners Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell, as Lucas Moura would then be in direct competition with the pair for a place in the starting line-up.

And I would expect the dynamic and talented player from the French champions PSG to have the edge over his rivals. There have been Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the 23-year old before but they seem to be gathering pace with the news coming out of France that Moura is not entirely happy in Paris and with his importance in the plans of Laurent Blanc.

Brilliant Brazilian to say yes to Arsenal transfer?

This particular Arsenal transfer rumour may not be right at the top of Arsene Wenger’s list of priority targets for the January transfer window, but the PSG and Brazil international star Lucas Moura is a top quality player and he would certainly be a great signing for the Gunners.

According to a Metro report, a move could really be on the cards in the winter transfer window. THe report claims that the French champions are willing to let the Brazilian go and the transfer fee of just over £20 million being talked about sounds like quite a bargain to me for a player of Moura’s quality.

Arsenal to STUN Premier League rivals with Cavani capture!!

Oh how we will laugh Arsenal fans! If the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and there are pictures of Arsene Wenger on a plane to France and in Paris later, and the manager is ready to complete a brilliant transfer deadline day signing that is.

There could even be two PSG players joining Arsenal according to reports but the one that would clearly make the biggest waves would be the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani and would surely give us a much larger chance of winning the Premier League this season.. The Daily Star is reporting that we have already had our bid of around £45 million accepted by the French champions.

Arsenal back in for SHOCK Cavani transfer

Reading between the lines, it looks like the Arsenal manager was still hoping that the France international striker Karim Benzema might still be available from Real Madrid, but now that the player himself has poured cold water on those hopes, Arsene Wenger has just a few days to sign a striker that everyone seems to think we need.

But there are not that many out there and the ones that are good enough to really improve our squad are not easy to get. Most are just about impossible, especially at this phase of the transfer window, but apparently there is a chance that PSG might accept a good offer for Edinson Cavani.

WOW! Cavani edges ever closer to Arsenal transfer

Arsenal fans were crying out for Arsene Wenger to sign the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani in the summer of 2013. That was a year after the Frenchman had brought in Oliver Giroud and Lukas Podolski after the departure of Robin van Persie and it is safe to say that we were not too impressed.

But Cavani went for around 65 million euros to PSG from his Italian club Napoli and they spent some of that money, too much really, in beating us to another striker in Gonzalo Higuain. Neither have exactly lit up their new clubs, but the Arsenal fans could finally be set to see what all the fuss over Cavani was about.

Does this mean SHOCK Cavani to Arsenal transfer is DONE DEAL?

There is a bit of news about Edinson Cavani that could mean that Arsenal have played an absolute blinder in the run up to the January transfer window. The Gunners have long been linked with a transfer swoop for the talented striker and according to a Daily Express report, his current club PSG may finally have agreed to let him come to the Premier League and play for Arsenal.
