Midfield target’s ‘come and get me’ plea to Arsenal

Arsene Wenger will no doubt be keeping a very close eye on a number of players over the next few weeks, as the January transfer window edges ever close and the Arsenal boss, hopefully, gets ready to splash some cash and strengthen the squad that is currently stretched very thin due to the mounting injury list.

One player that Wenger may watch more closely than others is the Sporting Lisbon and Portugal international star William Carvalho, as that defensive midfield role is surely the one most in need of help after the news that Francis Coquelin would be out for about three months.

Arsenal´s DM transfer hunt finally over?

When it was clear that Arsenal were not going to beat our Premier League rivals Man United to the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, despite a mountain of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last two years linking us with the Frenchman and recent reports suggesting that the player himself would have preferred to join the Gunners than the Red Devils, it did not necessarily mean the end of our hopes that Arsene Wenger would sign a top quality central midfielder this summer.

Arsenal HAVE signed ANOTHER defensive midfielder

With the young product of the Arsenal academy Francis Coquelin surprising all of us, except Arsene Wenger apparently, by showing that he has got what it takes to star for Arsenal in central midfield and provide the work rate, energy and tough tackling that you need to thrive in the Premier League, we all wondered whether that was it for Arsenal in that position.

And when Wenger also brought in the 17-year old Polish prospect Krystian Bielik from Legia Warsaw, said to have the potential to become a player like our former captain Patrick Vieira, it seemed that the Gunners had the deep lying central midfield role sewed up for years to come.

Arsenal to make this DM the SECOND transfer of 2015?

With the January transfer window just a couple of days away, Arsenal fans are hoping for some early business to be done by Arsene Wenger. There are reports that the West Ham and New Zealand international defender Winston Reid is likely to be the first player the Gunners sign in January, in a deal worth around £4 million.

And according to a report in the Daily Mail he could be joined at the Emirates stadium soon after by the young Portugal international star William Carvalho.

Arsenal transfer train gets moving with DOUBLE swoop!

Can anybody shed some light on the mysterious world that is the football transfer window? We Arsenal fans have suffered more than most in recent years, mainly because Arsene Wenger was trying to buy a Ferrari with a couple of boxes of water damaged umbrellas and some vouchers for the gift shop.

What I really don’t understand is why we have to wait until the last few days to get the deals done. Wenger, and the other managers to be fair, have had all summer to get the players they want but there is always this last minute scramble. As long as we get what we need, I suppose, it is alright, and it seems as though the Gunners are about to really get going with the last few pieces of transfer business.

Wenger dashes Arsenal fans’ hopes of Khedira transfer

Arsene Wenger spoke to the press today ahead of the Community Shield clash with Man City at Wembley on Sunday. But predictably, the manager was asked about the Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the moment and Wenger had bad news for any Arsenal fans that were still hoping that Sami Khedira would be joining his World Cup team mates Mertesacker, Podolski and Ozil at the Emirates.

The Frenchman was reported by Arsenal.com as saying, “We were never close to signing him because Jack Wilshere has come back fit and in midfield we have quite a few offensive box-to-box players.”
