With Arsenal fans still wondering which striker Arsene Wenger will turn to after our transfer offer was turned down by Jamie Vardy, the news reported by Metro that the Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain is looking to move on from his Serie A club Napoli comes as a huge boost.
Whether Arsenal can finally seal the deal for the forward we tried to sign from Real Madrid a few years ago remains to be seen, though, as Napoli will still demand a big transfer fee for their star man. The Italian side cannot be too demanding though, even with Higuain having a huge release clause of nearly 100 million euros in his contract, because the player’s agent and brother Nicolas has declared that Gonzalo will definitely not be signing a new deal and so could walk away for nothing in two years. ...........Read more
Maybe Arsenal fans will not be feeling so bad today after missing out on the transfer of Jamie Vardy from the Premier League title holders Leicester City. The England striker certainly failed to show his class as Roy Hodgson’s three lions were dumped out of Euro 2016 by the tournament minnows Iceland.
Quite a few people have said that Vardy would not really have suited Arsenal’s possession and dominance bsed style and perhaps they were proved right by England this summer. Whatever the case, Arsenal fans have been anxiously waiting to hear which striker would be coming to boost the firepower of the Gunners and now we do according to The Sun. ...........Read more
After Arsenal found out today once and for all that the England international striker Jamie Vardy would be staying at Leicester City for next season, the pressure on Arsene Wenger to find another front man to supplement the goals of Olivier Giroud has just gone up a notch.
One thing the Vardy saga has showed us is that the Frenchman does agree with the vast majority of the football world about our need for more firepower and that can only be a good thing after recent transfer windows. The problem now is who to get and if we are looking at a real top quality player up front then Wenger needs to move fast before all the best ones are snapped up. ...........Read more
It looks as though the Arsenal manager’s search for a striker to help out the much criticised France international Olivier Giroud will have to go on, as we appear to have missed out on the Celta Vigo and Spain star Nolito and the fact that Arsene Wenger was in the running for the 29-year old at all was because the Leicester City and England forward Jamie Vardy has apparently rejected the chance to join Arsenal.
Even worse than us missing out on yet another striker transfer, according to a report by The Mirror, is the fact that Nolito will be playing for our Premier League rivals Man City instead. ...........Read more
There have been a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks that have suggested firstly that the Borussia Dortmund and Armenia star Henrikh Mkhitaryan was a target for Arsene Wenger and then that the player wanted to join us and was set for a move to north London in this summer transfer window. The Gunners werequickly installed as favourites to sign him in the Online Soccer Betting.

Wenger on France’s radar?
Since the end of the season Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, has been quite coy on the speculation surrounding his future at the club. Although many fans had wanted Le Prof out of Arsenal last season, it seems the majority have again warmed to him since the signing of Granit Xhaka.
When speculation surrounding his future was at it’s highest point, Wenger did comment to say that he isn’t sure of how much longer his managerial association with Arsenal will last, with as early as the end of next season being a possibly departure date for the Frenchman. With his contract up at the end of next season and there yet to be any committal to a new deal, it starts to spread rumours that next year could be his last. ...........Read more
It is all happening for Arsenal so far in this transfer window, or at least compared to previous summer and winter windows in which Arsenal fans have sat bemused and impatient as all of our rivals spend money while Arsene Wenger insists there are just no players out there.
So it is so far, so good for the Gunners, after completing the big money transfer of Switzerland international Granit Xhaka from the German Bundesliga and having apparently activated the release clause in the contract of Leicester City´s star striker Jamie Vardy, so what’s next? ...........Read more
It looks like the minority of Arsenal fans who tried to organize protests against Arsene Wenger at the end of the season are going to be feeling disappointed now that Ivan Gazidis has announced that Wenger is fit and well and still making long term plans for the club.
The Gunners CEO also reiterated that Le Prof will be the one that decides when he cannot go on and he expects Wenger to give the Board plenty of notice before the event but he is not even considering the possibility at the present time. ...........Read more
