Arsenal on transfer trail of stunning young winger

There is a long and distinguished list of players that Arsenal have missed out on during the managerial reign of Arsene Wenger, with big name players like Zlatan Ibrahimovich, Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and many more having been close to a transfer to Arsenal before going on to having stellar careers.

But surely the most painful one has to be losing out to Manchester United for three time Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo. Wenger has admitted to this being his biggest regret, transfer-wise, so the Frenchman will be even more keen to avoid it happening again.

Arsenal have found their perfect striker

The win against Stoke highlighted the triumph of class over brute force. It also highlighted the worth of a certain player called Theo Walcott in his striker role.

Walcott has always been acknowledged for his versatility and speed. When be burst onto the scene as a youngster, he was a speedy winger who could trick any defence. But the question always remained top of his agenda – could he become a top striker like his idol Thierry Henry?

Gunner reveals fitness worries over Arsenal star man Alexis

It is perhaps a bigger concern for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger than it would be at most clubs, because of the crippling injury list that the club has had to cope with in recent years, including the way last season’s Premier League title challenge fell away when we lost the likes of Theo Walcott.

And the flying England forward who is just coming back from that long term injury has told Talksport that his new team mate Alexis Sanchez is giving his team mates and manager a little cause for concern about his own fitness.

Will Higuain join Henry and Bergkamp as an Arsenal legend?

Arsenal could be on the verge of throwing down a real marker in the transfer market. The English and Spanish media is awash with reports that Gonzalo Higuain has agreed personal terms with Arsenal and Real Madrid have accepted the Gunners’ offer of around £22 million.

There are also rumours that the 25-year old striker will be in London this week for his medical, while the bookies have slashed the odds of him coming to the Emirates down to 1/5 on, which is usually a very strong indication that the deal is done. However, we all know that until it is officially announced then we can take nothing as certain.

Hazard thinks Ronaldo, Messi, and erm, Gervinho, are world’s best!

After teasing media and fans alike over his prospective club destination in the off-season, new Chelsea recruit Eden Hazard has made another quick move to the top of the tabloids with a revelation that former Lille teammate Gervinho is his footballing inspiration.

Proving that he can contest Mario Balotelli in a competition for stories which provide the most laughs, 21-year old Hazard compared the Arsenal flop to the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, whose videos Hazard watches in hopes of emulating them, adding that the Ivorian is the best player player he has ever played with.

Arsene Wenger’s biggest mistake in the transfer market?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s biggest mistake since he joined the English side was just revealed today by Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent who shed some light regarding the star player’s move to Manchester United.

According to Jorge Mendes, Arsenal were the first to eye Ronaldo (like they usually are with talented young players), but lost the player in favor of Manchester United because they were too slow to react (again, like they usually are).

“I remember what happened to Ronaldo at Arsenal,” Mendes said.
