Lewandowski proved why Arsenal should sign him up!

Arsenal were linked with a whole host of players over the course of the summer including several strikers. This included the likes of Wayne Rooney and Luis Suarez, which according to reports over the summer were deals that Arsenal would have been capable of pulling off. The Gunners were also linked with Karim Benzema, a former teammate of current Arsenal starlet Mesut Ozil, but that was another move that never materialised.

One man that seemingly managed to escape Arsene Wenger’s eyeline is Borussia Dortmund and Polish international striker Robert Lewandowski; however after a good game against Arsenal in midweek, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear the clubs interest pick up in the near future.

Rooney would like Arsenal transfer but we should forget him

There have been several articles in newspapers in Britain that claim that Wayne Rooney would like a move to Arsenal – but only if his move to Chelsea falls through.

If this is true (which is unlikely) then we shouldn’t want Rooney, but focus on Suarez or somebody else. Arsene Wenger has said earlier in the summer that he would find it hard to turn Rooney down if the opportunity to sign him presented itself. Ivan Gazidis then added to the speculation a week or two later and said just about the same things and as the man who deals with transfers usually, that meant that Arsenal must have been preparing bids for him.

Wenger may want Mata but Mourinho will not sell to Arsenal

Over the last couple of days a new transfer rumour has done the rounds to add to the endless list of players Arsenal have been linked with so far this summer, and this time around the player speculated to be joining Arsenal is the Chelsea and Spain International midfielder Juan Mata.

Firstly can I say that this is definitely a rumour and in no way could I ever see this deal coming off. If it wasn’t for the reports that suggested Chelsea had offered him as part of the deal for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, then I’m sure this speculation would have never arisen. Another factor is that Mourinho apparently doesn’t like flair players and so that’s why he is supposedly keen to get rid of the main man in Chelsea’s midfield.

Arsenal `interested in big signings` does not mean they will get them!!

The title says it all, ‘We are interested in big signings.’ The words of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, which gives hope to Arsenal fans wherever you may be, or does it? I am interested in a private jet made of solid gold, but it doesn’t mean I am about to get one.

The thing is, we should all be excited by the fact that we are looking to sign top quality players but after years of being lied to and told this exact same thing, summer after summer, we just don’t expect us to see anyone of exceptional talent come in. Every single transfer window, Wenger announces the same thing but in different ways.

Where do Arsenal go instead of Rooney?

Although it was always unlikely that Wayne Rooney would make the same transfer between rivals that Robin Van Persie did last year, the England striker who is reported to be extremely unhappy at Manchester United, seems to be almost certain that he won’t be swapping Manchester for London and Arsenal.

Throughout the summer, Arsenal have been consistently linked with Rooney after it was reported he had handed in a transfer request to leave the Premier League Champions. He was then denied the chance to have his request accepted and so to an extent this made him ever more eager to leave, not to mention the fact that David Moyes was announced as the new United manager.

Could Wilshere’s words help Arsenal to sign Rooney?

Jack Wilshere has commented on the reports of Wayne Rooney being linked with Arsenal. He basically said that he would love for Rooney to come to Arsenal and believes it would be a major boost to the squad for next season.

Having an important player like Wilshere comment on things like this can only add to the likelihood that something will happen as you don’t see players from clubs talking about everybody who is linked with them. Just the sheer fact that any Arsenal player has spoken about Rooney makes it all the more realistic and possible.

Why Arsenal should consider taking Vela back

Arsenal could sign Carlos Vela back for as little as £3.5 Million because of a buy back clause that was included in his contract when he moved to La Liga club Real Sociedad. The Spanish club are one of the teams that Arsenal could face in the Champions League two legged play-off in August.

Vela has been an outstanding player at Sociedad and has been a major factor in the club getting into the Champions League. He scored 14 goals in 36 games for them last season but has been even more active in assists. For a striker, he does everything you can possibly need as he scores plenty of goals and creates chances for others around him.

Higuain? Rooney? Are Arsenal going to aim for a “Galacticos Project”

It has been 9 years since Wenger had hold the league trophy and 2 years since Arsenal has played the final of any major tournament (if one considers it major?). Since moving to the dreaded ‘Emirates’ the moments to cheer had been very few. All we had seen are some moments to cheer here and there, whether it was the Carling cup final in 2011 or the win against the mighty Bayern side in last season’s Champions’ League. But most of the time it was the stars leaving the club for greener pastures and club being reluctant to part with the cash to bring in new stars to fill the void. Situations like the Walcott saga is just the tip of the iceberg of the larger systemic failure of the club’s contract philosophy.
