Arsenal transfers! Ryo OUT and Draxler IN is a DREAM DOUBLE

After it looked to Arsenal fans, or to me at least, that Arsene Wenger was dragging his feet about getting something going in the summer transfer market, we could be set to go ballistic and complete the transfer of a player that has been linked with a move to north London in no end of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last two years.

According to a Metro report, the talented 21-year old German international is now keen on the step up, after previously saying that he thought his progress in the game might be better served staying with his current club Schalke.

Arsenal must use Youth and Experience to compete in Capital One Cup

Chelsea have beaten Manchester City 2 – 1 at Stamford Bridge thanks to once again another Joe Hart howler. Now they set their sights on the Capital One cup match against Arsenal at the Emirates. And although are going to play the second string, it will not be an easy game for Arsenal.

Even though Chelsea will be playing the game only two days after their previous game, they will still field a very menacing line up. The likes of Willian, Mata and De Bruyne didn’t even start for Chelsea today meaning that we can expect those three behind Eto’o.

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.

Young Gunner Ryo Miyaichi is set to join Fulham or Bolton today

Wenger says he has a plan to loan out Ryo Miyaichi to an English team (Bolton?)

The young Japanese genius Ryo Miyaichi had an excellent first loan period at Feyenoord last season, and it was the sparkling reviews from Holland which prompted Arsene Wenger to bring him back to Arsenal this season to see him first hand.

But the emergence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain along with the arrival of Gervinho has left the youngster with very little chance of breaking into the Arsenal first-team this season, so Wenger is planning to send him out on loan to an English side in the next couple of days.
