YES! Arsenal in transfer talks with World Cup winning striker!

It looks like Arsene Wenger might just agree with his former Arsenal protege and star striker Thierry Henry after all. The former France international ruffled a few feathers, including those of our current centre forward Olivier Giroud, when he suggested in his role as a TV pundit that the Gunners could not win the Premier League with the forward line we have.

Wenger disagreed at the time but according to a Metro report, he is now looking to sign another striker in the summer transfer window. According to the report, the player is Pedro Rodriguez who has won almost everything going for his club Barcelona and on the international stage with Spain.

Bellerin contract shows Arsenal Youth Policy still works….

Hector Bellerin may or may not be a player you’ve ever heard of and you may not of been aware he was amongst the Arsenal ranks, but the Spanish under 19 international has been a very effective player for Arsenal under 21 and reserves over the past two seasons and his performances last season especially have been recognised through the offer of a new contract.

The contract is only being reported as a long term deal and no wages are of course involved in the news however this is a promising move by Arsenal. You may not see any relevance in reading this news however there is something more substantial to this agreement than you may think.

Rumours of Julio Cesar to Arsenal pick up once again

Why is it always Arsenal that seem to be involved in these never ending transfer fiascos? Normally its endless speculation on players leaving the club, such as Fabregas, Nasri and Van Persie. Whilst we also experience the odd piece of speculation that persistently links a player with Arsenal, only for us to miss out to one of our rivals, Juan Mata anyone? And this summer looks set to be no different, despite Arsenal’s change in attitude.
It’s being reported once again that Arsenal are set to step up their interests and sign QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar once he returns from the Confederations Cup tournament in Brazil. But how many times have we read this report, it’s becoming annoying rather than exciting. To be fair he has been away on International duty and so this would of hampered any potential deal that was in the process for the time being, however the persistent links do not help the transfer go through, all it seems to do is get a lot of Arsenal fans excited, only to be let down when the transfer never comes off.

Is Valdes the right keeper for Arsenal?

It is being reported today in most of the major Spanish media outlets that Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is on his way to Arsenal this summer after telling Barcelona that he is leaving. Barcelona are thought to have a goalkeeper lined up to replace him although they are keeping their mouths shut on just who that will be.

It has been reported at different times over the last few months that Valdes is unhappy at Barcelona and Barcelona are unhappy with him because of numerous attempts to agree a new contract for the Spaniard that have gone wrong and resulted in the possible transfer.

Samir Nasri shows he’s a good loser (NOT!) with four-letter rant!

The ex-Arsenal traitor Samir Nasri has shown the world that he still hasn’t grown up despite being saying at the end of last season: “I’ve matured, I’m now a champion in England and can handle these pressure situations,”

Nasri became a figure of hate for Arsenal fans after he forced Arsene Wenger to sell him to Man City and then followed it up by many anti-Arsenal comments during the season.

Wenger thinks Giroud is already at Arsenal

Arsene Wenger gave an interview to Tf1, the French TV station, in which he spoke about Montpellier and France striker Olivier Giroud as if he was already a gunner.

“I think he has exceptional potential and will integrate very well in our collective and our way of playing.”

Arsenal and Wenger in particular are known for playing their cards close to their chest, so this is the surest sign yet that the completion of the transfer is just a formality.The manager himself described the deal as “90 percent.”

Top Arsenal and Tottenham striker target admits Premiership desire

The prolific Spanish striker Fernando Llorente has been instrumental in helping Athletico Bilbao overachieve this season by reaching the Finals of the Europa League and the Copa Del Rey, which has made many Premiership teams step up and take notice.

Both Arsenal and Tottenham have been strongly linked wth a move for the giant 27 year-old after he managed to knock in 29 goals in 53 appearances for Bilbao this season, and he has told reporters that he is tempted by a move to the Premier League.

Llorente said: “I might end up playing in England, who knows? At the moment I’m at Athletic Bilbao, but who knows later.
