Proof Khedira is desperate to join Arsenal in January? 1

Posted on October 24, 2014 by admin

The Arsenal transfer rumours about the Real Madrid and Germany international midfielder seem to be growing all the time, so according to the old adage that there is no smoke without fire, there is definitely something going on behind the scenes.

But the Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti recently declared that he would not sanction the sale of his player in January even thought it meant that the La Liga club would receive nothing when he left in the summer. And he backed that up by bringing Khedira on against Liverpool on Wednesday, meaning the central midfielder would be cup tied in the Champions League knockout stages for Arsenal.

Arsenal stunned by £65m price tag for transfer target!! 0

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

I have got a feeling that Arsene Wenger may just decide to abandon this particular Arsenal transfer target. Although the Frenchman has started to spend a lot more money in recent transfer windows, I don’t think he is quite ready to join the ranks of clubs like Man City, Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid just yet.

And that is the sort of spending power it would need to sign the teenage sensation Goncalo Guedes from the Portuguese club Benfica. The 17-year old may be highly rated by his club but has only just made his first team debut, so the Talksport report revealing that his new contract is set to have a nmassive £65 million release clause is surely intended to ensure that the youngster is going nowhere.

Liverpool bid £31m to hijack Arsenal’s star striker transfer 0

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

Arsenal fans have been able to have a good laugh at their Premier League rivals from the red side of Liverpool this season. Gooners have not always had much reason to smile about the transfer side of things in recent years, but that seems to be changing with Arsene Wenger being given some decent money to spend.

And the Frenchman really dodged a bullet this summer it seems, while his Liverpool counterpart Brendan Rodgers poked his head over the trenches and took one full in the face, by signing the unpredictable and unreliable Italian striker Mario Balotelli.

Sensational Serie A striker set for Arsenal switch in January? 1

Posted on October 23, 2014 by admin

If the Arsenal transfer rumours last summer were anything to go by, Arsene Wenger would already have signed the Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain. It was claimed that an agreement was in place between him and the Gunners but it was hijacked at the last minute when Napoli offered Real Madrid more than we were apparently willing to pay.

But the transfer of the star striker to north London could finally be set to happen, according to a Metro report. The paper claims that the Arsenal boss is determined to finally get his man and is ready with a huge offer to convince his Serie A club to sell.

65 Today? Time for Wenger to retire from Arsenal! 4

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Patrick

Happy birthday Arsene – NOT! Surely when you get to 65 years of age you don’t need all this stress and strain, you could be heading for a heart attack if you carry on like this. Arsenal were incredibly lucky to win tonight against a useless Anderlecht side that has only won once in their last 20 Champions League games.

Never mind Arsene. What about us poor Arsenal fans who have been left with our hearts in our mouths at the end of nearly every single game, starting with the last minute equaliser at the Emirates against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the season.

Arsenal rocked by transfer snub from stunning Spanish striker 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

You would have to say that is the defensive areas of the Arsenal squad that are most in need of a boost at the moment, with the Gunners leaking goals on a regular basis and having to play inexperienced young players like Hector Bellerin and use others out of position.

Spud hating Podolski piles pressure on Arsenal boss! 0

Posted on October 22, 2014 by admin

Lukas Podolski may have endeared himself even more to the Arsenal fans this week, with his classic tweet. He was reacting to the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds about him and a possible switch to our north London rivals Tottenham,as reported by the BBC.

The German Gunner wrote, “Hell will freeze over before this transfer happens.”

Not keen then Lukas? But as much as the Arsenal fans would have loved that bit of spud bashing, it is the manager that he needs to win over and Arsene Wenger has not responded well to his recent calls to be be played more. He even left the striker out of the match day squad completely in the last game.

Ozil ready to join Arsenal panto villain Nasri at Man City? 2

Posted on October 21, 2014 by admin

I am not the biggest fan of the Arsenal and Gerrmany midfielder Mesut Ozil. But that does not mean that I am happy about the news that the World Cup winner could be heading to Man City.

According to a Metro report the Man City boss Manuel Pellegrini has asked his club chiefs to prepare an offer for Ozil in January.

And if recent Arsenal transfer rumours are true. Ozil is ready to go because of Arsene Wenger’s stubborn idea that the German should play on the wing rather than the number 10 role that made him a global superstar.

Madrid slam door on Khedira’s January transfer to Arsenal 0

Posted on October 20, 2014 by admin

If Arsene Wenger is determined to finally sign a top class defensive midfielder to strengthen his Arsenal squad in January, then it looks like the Frenchman will have to keep looking. Assuming that the recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Sami Khedira would be the player coming to join the Gunners that is.

It was rumoured that Wenger had already reached an agreement with the Germany international over the personal terms of his transfer and that Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker had convinced the central midfielder to snub any attempts by Jose Mourinho and Chelsea to hijack the deal.

Is Schneiderlin transfer the answer to Arsenal’s problems? 0

Posted on October 19, 2014 by admin

It seems to me as though Arsenal are being punished for their failure to push on and make a real concerted effort to sign Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton during the summer transfer window. The France international has not only pushed on with his personal performances, but he has led Southampton to the sort of results that Arsene Wenger and the Gunners can only dream of at the minute.

And it looks like the Arsenal boss may have realised his mistake, with The Mirror reporting that Wenger is planning to go back for the Southampton star in the January transfer window.
