NO Alexis Sanchez as Arsenal face 4 games in 10 days

Even though Arsene Wenger has declared himself happy with what Arsenal were able to do in the summer transfer market this year, spending more than ever to bring in Lucas Perez, Mustafi, Holding, Xhaka and Asuno to strengthen the squad in key areas, the international break did not come at a very good time for us.

The boss told Arsenal Player that it would have been nice if the Gunners were able to carry on where we left off with the fluency and penetration we saw away to Watford but he does believe that our squad now has the quality and quantity that we need to fight on the four fronts of the Premier League, Champions League, FA cup and the EFL cup.

Arsenal boss states the bleeding obvious!!

Despite the fact that Arsenal have not lifted the Premier League trophy in almost 12 years, Arsene Wenger still has the reputation of changing the face of English football. The Frenchman even gained the nickname of Le Prof for his educated and erudite approach to all aspects of the game.

So even though his tactics or his refusal to change the Arsenal style of play has attracted some criticism in recent years, Wenger is still a man to listen to when it comes to the beautiful game. So the football press and Arsenal fans in particular were keen to hear his thoughts on what has been going wrong for the Gunners and our title challenge recently.

Arsenal just DAYS away from Schneiderlin transfer?

Without any reliable insider information on the transfer comings and goings at Arsenal, we are often left to trawl through the myriad of Arsenal transfer rumours desperately hunting for a crumb of truth. Sometimes you think you have got a handle on what Arsene Wenger is planning but often as not the Frenchman then goes and surprises you anyway.

So when I say that the Gunners could be just days away from completing the brilliant transfer of the French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, it is because a report in The Mirror has revealed that the player himself has confirmed that he is in transfer talks and that he hopes that his summer move will be sorted very soon.

Schneiderlin says YES to Arsenal transfer!!

Unless you believe Arsene Wenger’s claims that Arsenal are not yet in transfer mode despite all the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with players like Petr Cech, Jackson Martinez and many more, then you will be hoping that Wenger and his transfer team at the Emirates are already working hard and trying to get the transfer business of the summer done early.

According to a Metro report we may have already secured one of the most important signings, a top quality central midfielder, in the Southampton and France international star Morgan Schneiderlin.

TOP target WANTS Arsenal transfer and CONFIRMS talks

If this is all true then Arsenal should soon have one of the main transfer targets of the summer sewn up nice and early and us fans can start to relax and look forward to a promising summer in the transfer window and a real crack at the Premier League title next season.

The Gunners have long been linked with the France international midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and according to a Metro report the player himself has all but told us that the transfer is one the brink of being done.

Arsenal with GREEN LIGHT and PRICE to sign Schneiderlin

Although it meant that Arsenal had to miss out on one of our top transfer targets last summer, I have to admit that I was quite impressed by the way that Ronald Koeman and Southampton dug their heels in and managed to hold onto their midfield star Morgan Schneiderlin.

But it appears that the south coast club have already accepted that they will not be able to repeat the feat this time around. According to The Telegraph they have offered the Frenchman a bumper new deal that would make him the highest paid player at the club but they do not expect it to be enough.

Arsenal to let star join Premier League rivals on LOAN! WTF?

I do hope that this latest Arsenal transfer rumour is some sort of wind up. Or perhaps if it is going to happen it is because Arsene Wenger has found something better for the Gunners as letting our Poland international keeper Wojciech Szczesny go to strengthen another Premier League club, especially one who beat us twice this season, seems a bit daft.

A Metro report claims that Szczesny will be playing for Ronald Koeman at Southampton next season in order to provide cover for their England international Fraser Forster who looks set to miss quite a bit of the season with the knee injury picked up last month.

Arsenal closing in on their BIGGEST piece of the jigsaw!

If reports from ESPN are to be believed, it seems as though the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already made contact with Southampton over the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin, who has been on the club’s radar for quite some time now. After having been denied the chance to leave last season as a result of the mass exodus from St. Mary’s, ESPN reports that Southampton have assured the player that he will be allowed to leave this season, but for the right price.

Spurs loss gives Arsenal BIG trouble in Top Four fight

It was not just a bad day for the Arsenal fans who will now have to suffer the taunts of our rivals from down the Seven Sisters road. The away day defeat by Tottenham in the north London derby has left Arsenal in real danger of missing out on a top four finish this season.

Any lingering Premier League title hopes were extinguished as Chelsea beat Aston Villa and now it is all about the top four for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners. But with Southampton grabbing an extra time winner away to QPR and with Man United still to play tomorrow, that is now looking like a tall order.
