Xhaka proud of Jose Mourinho links

The Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has been tipped to leave Arsenal this summer, and there have been numerous rumours that Jose Mourinho is very keen to leave the Emirates to play under him in Serie A with Roma next season.

The Swiss captain has certainly had a rollercoaster career at Arsenal with his relationship with the notoriously fickle Arsenal fans often being in the spotlight, and he was hotly tipped to be leaving before Mikel Arteta took over the reins when Unai Emery was dismissed 18 months ago.

Arsenal to take advantage of Roma woes with BARGAIN transfer?

It is not the transfer that most of the Arsenal fans are hoping for. In fact it is not even in one of the two positions that most of us see as the priorities for strengthening in the January transfer window, central defence and central midfield.

But Arsene Wenger may be tempted to take advantage of the Serie A club Roma and their situation to pick up the Italy international star Mattie Destro for a bargain price when the transfer window opens in January. Roma were knocked out of the Champions League last night and the money lost from that as well as their desire not to sell Kevin Strootman to Man United have led them to offer to sell their talented young striker to us.

The possibility of Arsenal completing this transfer in January could still rest on matters outside of our control, as his current Serie A club Roma face a home game against Man City in the Champions League on Wednesday. If the Italian club qualifies for the next round, they may be unwilling to part with any of their players in the coming transfer window.

Roma’s European situation might not have anything to do with it either, but one thing that does seem certain is that there is a good chance that their striker Mattia Destro is keen on a move to the Premier League and Arsenal are interested in signing him.

Although Arsenal seem to have a couple of other transfer priorities than to strengthen the forward line in January, it does not mean that Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal scouting team will not still be looking at striking options for the January.

And with it looking increasingly likely that either Lukas Podolski, Joel Campbell or both will be looking to leave the Emirates in January in order to get more game time, maybe the Gunners will need to sign another striker when the winter window opens.

As Arsenal begin to prepare for the start of the new Premier League season, there is a sense of optimism among the club’s supporters in regards to the North London side’s credentials in this summer transfer window. Whilst there are quite a few areas that need to be strengthened, there is no question that the most important is in attack, more specifically, a central striker.

There have been several reports in the last couple of days claiming that the former Arsenal man Carlos Vela is set to return for a second spell at the Emirates following a very successful two-year stint at Real Sociedad, although the young Mexican is more of a left winger these days. Whilst this is definitely something to be excited about, there is more good news for Arsenal fans.

Why Arsenal could be in line for Reina transfer

We all know that QPR’s Julio Cesar seemed almost certain to join Arsenal after QPR confirmed that he would leave the club and Cesar said that he wants to stay in London. It was pretty much a done deal because no other London clubs in the Premier League really need a new keeper other than Crystal Palace. But today it seems that Roma are intent on taking Cesar back to Italy to replace their outgoing Dutch international goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg who has sealed a move to London club, Fulham.

My point is, if Cesar moves to Roma and out of Arsenal’s hands, should Arsene Wenger look to Liverpool’s Pepe Reina?
