Arsenal striker transfer ALMOST complete!!

Whether this one transfer will then lead to some more action in the market for Arsenal, we can only hope, but when the club does finally complete the transfer away from the Emirates stadium of the Costa Rican international forward Joel Campbell, it will create some space in the Arsenal squad.

Perhaps that is what Arsene Wenger has been waiting for as the fans get increasingly concerned about the Gunners trying to beat the likes of Chelsea and Man City to the Premier League title with Olivier Giroud as the first choice centre forward.

This new striker CAN fire Arsenal to Premier League trophy

Arsene Wenger has been pretty cautious in the summer transfer window so far, adding just Petr Cech to the Arsenal first team. But he has been open about his confidence in the squad already at his disposal, especially if they can stay relatively injury free.

Getting Cecg from Chelsea should be a big help top our chances of beating Jose Mourinho’s team to the title and there is a lot of strength and depth all over the pitch as well, but there is no secret that one of the positions we may need to strengthen is the centre forward role.

Great news as Arsenal complete double signing!

Arsene Wenger may not have done a lot of business in the January transfer window but he did identify the team´s most pressing need and signed a good quality centre back, the Brazilian Gabriel Paulista, in order to provide cover and competition for the centre backs we already have.

His other signing, the 17’year old Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik, is one for the future and that is something that our manager has to keep a close eye on as well as what will help us to do well this season. And the Frenchman has now completed two more very important deals for the future of Arsenal.

Watch out Arsenal fans, Here Comes Bendtner!!

The return of Nicklas Bendtner could finally happen today, with Arsenal set to face West Bromwich Albion in the first round of the Capital One Cup. Bendtner, who has been away from Arsenal for around two or three years now, since his declaration to never play for the Gunners again, looks set for a return and it’s come at a time where he couldn’t be needed more.

Currently with injuries to Podolski, Walcott, Sanogo and any other players that have the potential to play as central striker, as well as the lowering fitness of Olivier Giroud, suddenly Arsenal have been left with just three backup strikers in Park, Akpom and Bendtner himself, with the latter being our main focus of the moment.

How will Arsenal cope without Cazorla AND Giroud?

Whilst the majority of news surrounding Arsenal is positive at the moment, I’m afraid following on from our good win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, there is some bad news to deliver on the injury front. Firstly, though, Lukas Podolski is recovering well and could be in line for a return in early October, whilst vice-captain Mikel Arteta could feature in the Capital One Cup game vs. West Brom. Thomas Vermaelen too made his return for the final few minutes and although he didn’t have a lot to do, he looked up to shape and possibly he could be in line to challenge for his place in the team.

Arsenal to clear last deadwood – making room for……?

Yesterday Arsenal finally brought another player into the squad, with former Gunner Mathieu Flamini re-signing for the club on a 3 year deal worth £40k a week. And now the news could get even better with rumours suggesting the last remaining piece of deadwood (Bendtner aside) could be leaving the club for France.

Firstly my opinion on Flamini signing is a mixed one. Although I’m glad we now have another option to field and his experience will hopefully help us through the struggle, I am not particularly happy with the club making another free transfer and still not spending any money. What I also didn’t like was the fact, Arsenal were praising it up, especially on their twitter account, bombarding the fans about his signing as if we had just signed Messi or something.

Wenger to promote Arsenal youngsters to cover injury crisis?

Arsene Wenger has suggested in a press conference that he may choose to promote some more youth to the Arsenal first team squad, once the transfer window closes for the summer. Although he didn’t directly say anything about the Arsenal youth, he made it clear that he wanted to bring in quality rather than quantity. Every single year he seems to say this yet we are always left with it the other way round.
