Nicklas Bendtner was confident that he would find a new club at the end of last season, and he has
been variously linked with Stoke, Sunderland, Newcastle and a few German clubs but without seeming
to be close to actually signing for anyone. But his father (and agent) said today that he was happy
Liverpool outcast Joe Cole may be able to inadvertently help Arsenal secure a much needed new
midfielder by sparking a transfer merry-go-round. Arsenal are keen to add a creative player to
their squad after the departure of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Joe Cole has seen his career
stall after falling out of favour at [.
After Arsenal's shock 8-2 defeat to Manchester United this weekend the rumours around who will join
the club have been going into overdrive. While several players are thought to be of interest to
Arsenal the two most likely targets seem to be two defenders. TalkSport Radio is reporting that
Pert Mertesacker will undergo a medical [.
Arsenal have officially confirmed that Monaco striker Chu Young Park will join them today. The
26-year-old South Korean was rumoured to be heading to Lille but Arsenal stepped in at the last
moment and secured the striker's signature. Arsenal confirmed the signing on the official website
Arsenal.com and Gunners fans will hope that it's the [.
We said earlier on today that things were hotting up in the transfer market and that is certainly
the case. Mauro Zarate had been linked with a possible move to the Emirates, but he will now remain
at Lazio after they refused the player permission to leave on loan. Zarate's agent Giuseppe Bozzo
has said, [.
Things are starting to hot up at the Emirates with less than 48 hours remaining before the transfer
window comes to a close. Last night news broke about Andre Santos and today there is plenty more
news to report. Two Chelsea players, Alex and Yossi Benayoun, have been linked with Arsenal in the
last couple [.
The Arsenal legend Frank McLintock believes that Arsene Wenger has been given enough years to
address the Gunners' deficiency in defence, and this could be his last chance to plug the gaps or
the Frenchman could be sacked for his obstinacy. McLintock, who won the Double with Arsenal in
1971, said: "If he doesn't start [.
The news that Gunners fans everywhere have been waiting weeks for has finally happened. Arsene
Wenger signs a player! Brazilian Andre Santos has agreed to sign for Arsenal in a Â£6.2miilion deal
from Turkish side Fenerbahce according to reports tonight on Sky Sports and sports website
goal.com. The clubs have agreed terms, with just personal [.
Arsenal have been in the news for all the wrong reasons after yesterdays hammering at Old Trafford,
but things could be looking up as they may be about to sign Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun.
Benayoun has been at Stamford Bridge for just over a year, but his playing time has been badly
affected by a [.
With less than three days to go now before the transfer window closes the rumours on who Arsenal
are signing are increasing by the minute. Here are some of the latest. Mikel Arteta from Everton
has been mentioned already this summer and according to some reports Arsene Wenger is prepared to
pay Â£9million for the [.
Whether it be in the newspapers, on fans forums or on radio phone-ins there have been some Arsenal
fans suggesting, or even demanding in some cases that Arsene Wenger should be sacked as Arsenal
manager. The bookmakers have been having a field day with Arsenal all summer, but they have also
been having sleepless nights [.
I wonder if yesterdays defeat will have any bearing on whether Arsenal sign a defender in the next
three days. The way things have panned out during the current transfer window then most probably
not and when you read the stories in today's papers it seems even more unlikely. We all know about
Gary Cahill [.

Arsene Wenger saw his sadly depleted Gunners get a hammering from Manchester United yesterday, and
admitted that he is still trying to bring in some new players to improve the squad. He said that he
had a whole team of people looking for new players for Arsenal, and if he can find players of the
When Arsenal lost 2-1 to Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006 I was in tears. This
was the first and only game that I succumbed to visual anguish; expect today was the second time
ever that I cried over a defeat. The disappointment and anguish I have felt today will take a [...]
I don't think I need to comment on the result, but we can all agree it is one of the most
embarrassing moments of Arsene Wengers career. We are all used to Wenger complaining about the
referee or linesman, or anyone other than blaming the players themselves. But what will his excuses
be after this [.
Arsene Wenger has given a little insight into how he conducts his transfer business, and he says
that although the Arsenal fans are desperate for him to bring in reinforcements it doesn't mean
that to do so is the right thing for the club, which he feels is more important. As an example he
Arsene Wenger announced the other day that Nicklas Bendtner is set to leave Arsenal in the next few
days, and all reports have indicated that he has been in talks with both Stoke City and Newcastle
United. But this morning it has been reported that Stoke are close to signing the Tottenham striker
Peter Crouch [.
Despite the exaggerated public argument this week between Arsene Wenger and the Bolton boss Phil
Gartside over Arsenal's opening bid for Gary Cahill, it seems that Wenger still intends to return
with an improved ÂÂ£12million bid for the big England defender. Owen Coyle has already announced
that he would be happy to see Cahill move [.
After the public argument between Arsenal and Bolton over Gary Cahill this week, it is looking
unlikely that the two clubs will come to an agreement over the big England defender, so it seems
that Arsene Wenger has switched his attention to the Chelsea and Brazil defender Alex. It is being
reported in the Metro [.
Rumours are flying that Arsenal are about to sign South-Korea captain and striker Park Chu-Young.
The 26-year-old is thought to be in London for a medical and would be a surprise signing for the
Gunners. Although fans will welcome the addition of a striker they may be disappointed that this
almost certainly rules out a [.
Arsene Wenger isn't doing the Arsenal cause much good with his comments that Bolton can keep Gary
Cahill. Arsenal were rumoured to have put in a Â Â£6 million offer for the defender which Bolton
turned down point blank. Bolton manager Owen Coyle felt the offer was insulting and that they
expected three times as much [.
Arsene Wenger never fails to surprise us, and it looks like he has pulled off a coup by hijacking
the move of Monaco's South Korean striker Park Chu-Young, who had agreed terms with Lille and was
supposedly on his way to the north of France to complete a medical with the Ligue 1 Champions.
Arsenal have always had their fair share of French Internationals over the years, and they also
have done a lot of business with French clubs too. Well the latest rumour to roll off the press is
that they are planning a Â£22million raid on Frenchman Yoann Gourcuff who plays for Lyon. Arsene
Wenger needs a [.
There are just over 24 hours to go now until the game against Manchester United kicks-off, and with
no new players to mention we thought we should bring everyone up to date on who is available and
who is not. On the suspension front Gervinho and Alex Song are serving their second game of a [...]
Sorry to bore you with more transfer rumours, but with just five days remaining in the current
transfer window rumours are all there is when it comes to Arsenal signing any new players, but then
we are used to that are we not! Dutch International Eljero Elia is a winger who currently plays for
It is being reported today that Arsene Wenger is intending to reinvest the whole sum received from
Barcelona (for Cesc Fabrega)s to bring in a straight replacement for his influential captain. There
are very few candidates that Arsenal Fans would accept in place of Fabregas, but at the top of most
fans lists would be [.
It is being reported this morning that the Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is very keen on bringing
the young Portugese midfielder Danilo Pereira to Anfield, but the youngster, who has been
favourably compared to a young Patrick Vieira, is more likely to end up at the Emirates next week.
According to the Metro, Arsene Wenger [.
Arsene Wenger has finally uttered the words that no Arsenal fan wanted to hear, that the Gunners
may make no signings at all but he is not worried as he has enough youngsters ready to step up to
the first team. It would certainly be no surprise to Arsenal fans who have seen Wenger consistently
Arsene Wenger is desperate to add a defender to the squad, especially in the wake of all the
injuries suffered in the past weeks. With that in mind Arsenal have put in a bid for Bolton's Gary
Cahill. However TalkSport Radio is reporting that Owen Coyle feels insulted by the bid. He said:
"There was [.
Arsene Wenger has been speaking out about the transfer window again and has admitted he is looking
for someone in a striking position, just hours after it was confirmed that he had put a bid in for
a defender! He promised the Arsenal fans that he would be bringing in a big experienced defender at

Guardian that Thomas Vermaelen is [.
Speculation and rumours are all very well, but Arsenal fans just want some signings to be made now,
especially as the transfer window comes to a close next week. The bookies are always quick to react
to news stories, and can be a good source of information when it comes to transfers. Here are some
The draw has been made for the Champions League and Arsenal have got a reasonable draw I'm sure you
will agree, but I expect many of you are just glad that we are in the group stages of this years

There is now less than a week to go before the transfer window closes and there is still no news on
any new permanent signings for the Arsenal. We have plenty more rumours to report though and the
first of those surrounds striker Papiss Demba Cisse. Cisse plays for Frieburg in the Bundesliga and
It is being reported this morning that Arsene Wenger has given up hope of signing Phil Jagielka
from Everton and has finally decided to pitch in with an opening bid for Bolton's Gary Cahill. The
Mirror reckons that Wenger has valued Cahill at just Â£6million as the big defender only has one
year left on [.
After Arsenal's successful qualification for the group stages of the Champions League several
ex-Gunners are weighing in with their opinions on Arsenal's future. The consensus is generally that
Arsenal need to shell out and bring in some experience to go with the young talent they already
have. Bob Wilson told Talk Sport Radio that they [.
There is no doubt as the transfer window nears closure there are some very strange Arsenal transfer
rumours being bandied about right now. Just as the Arsenal Fans are clamouring for Wenger to buy
some top experienced centre-backs, Sky Sports reveals that Arsene Wenger is chasing a 16 year-old
Arsenal seem to finally be making some real efforts to sign a top player the day after they
qualified for the Champions League group stages. It's being reported that they have put in a bid
for Rennes' Yann M'Villa. According to the Guardian Arsenal had a previous bid of Â£15 million
rejected for the holding [.
A great night last night in Italy for everyone connected with this great football club. A
performance that should inspire everybody and it could, no should have gone some way to ensuring
that new players will be arriving over the next few days. Eden Hazard is again in the news today,
but this time the [.
Samir Nasri has revealed that Patrick Vieira was the main reason he chose to move to Manchester
City. Not the fact he has just doubled his wages overnight of course. Money had nothing to do with
it did it Samir. Nasri has been speaking to MCFC TV and he said, "Patrick Vieira made a big [...]
A signing of intent is what Arsenal fans have been crying out for, a statement of the clubs future
if you like, but is a loan move for Real Madrid star Kaka the way to go. Real Madrid have dismissed
Arsenal's advances to take the Brazilian on a season long long deal. Jose Mourinho is [...]
So can things get any worse? I spend a week in a hospital that doesn't have internet (not that I
could have used my fingers with all those tubes sticking out of me) and as soon as i get home I
find that Samir Nasri has earned Arsenal another Â£24m, while his supposed replacement, Juan [...]
Hey Guys, big fan of the site. Big Arsenal fan, have had season ticket for past seven years. Just
thought that I'd put forward an argument for Arsene Wenger and why David Dein could be the answer
to our problems. If it's good enough can you let me know if you'll consider posting it on [...]
Way back in march i posted an article on here defending Wenger and questioning what was really
going on behind closed doors, i wrote this article after having stumbled across and interesting bit
of reading which made it clear all was not what it seemed at the Emirates and that Wenger was
working under tight [.
There is a list as long as your arm when it comes to players that Arsenal have been linked with
this summer, and when it comes to midfielders it is probably even longer. Marvin Martin of French
side Sochaux is a player that has been mentioned, but others like Juan Mata and Eden Hazard were
Just when you think things couldn't get any worse for Arsene Wenger he now has to do without
midfielder Jack Wilshere for a further three weeks. Wilshere, 19, was injured during pre-season and
played just seven minutes of the game against New York Red Bulls before being withdrawn. Speaking
at a news conference yesterday Wenger [.
Hands up those of you who would take a 2-1 defeat right now ahead of the game against Udinese. As
much as we all want Arsenal to win, and win well in every game they play, a 2-1 defeat would be
enough to make it through to the group stages and bring the club another [...]
Lille midfielder Eden Hazard has been a name on the wanted list of many over the summer months, and
there have been numerous reports over the last few days suggesting that Arsenal were about to offer
Â£26million for the Belgian international. Well I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but the
We all know about Arsenal's problems in recruiting new players, but it now appears they are even
having trouble in getting rid of players they don't want with a certain French defender up for
grabs, but there are no takers. Sebastian Squillaci joined Arsenal last year from Spanish club
Sevilla and broke into the first [.
It may come as good news to some of you, but on the other hand it may not as it depends on your
point of view. Samir Nasri looks set to travel to Italy with the rest of the Arsenal squad for the
make or break game with Udinese. Nasri trained with the rest of [...]
Arsenal are frantically trying to sign new players before the transfer window closes next week, and
as usual today's newspapers are full of rumours on who is coming to the Emirates. One of the latest
is surrounding the German International defender Per Mertesacker of Werder Bremen in exchange for
want away striker Nicklas Bendtner.
Arsene Wenger has been getting plenty of stick of late, some rightly so and some not so in my
opinion, but he continues to receive the backing of his fellow professionals, and the latest to
come out and support him his the England manager Fabio Capello. Speaking on Sky Sports the Italian
said, "I hope [.
Arsene Wenger was absent from the bench last week when his side defeated Udinese 1-0 in the first
leg of their Champions League qualifier, and he has now been handed a further two game ban after
being found guilty of breaching UEFA rules. The ban takes effect immediately and it comes as a big
Arsene Wenger has insisted he will not walk away from Arsenal despite mounting criticism after
another pathetic performance at home to Liverpool. The players were booed off once again at the
sound of the final whistle. If Wenger doesn't change his transfer policy soon and do what is right
for our great club then his [.
You would have thought that filling the gap left by Cesc Fabregas would be easy, after all there
are numerous players that are for sale right now, and even some that would welcome a move to
Arsenal. We all have our own opinions on who, and who should not be coming to the Emirates, but
Arsene Wenger was a man under pressure even before yesterdays game, but after a disappointing
performance in which his side lost at home to Liverpool for the first time in 11 years some fans,
and it is a very small minority it has to be said, have been calling for Wenger to go. Despite
George Graham knows a thing or two about winning trophies, and during his time as Arsenal manager
he won the League Title twice, one FA Cup, two League Cups and he also has a UEFA Cup victory on
his CV. So surely there is no better person to comment on the current situation at Arsenal. [...]
You wouldn't think that the news could get any worse for Arsenal, but it has. They have just
suffered a 2-0 home defeat against Liverpool, which was the Merseysiders first ever win at The
Emirates and a first defeat at home against them since February 2000. Arsenal have suffered their
first first home defeat of [.
Yes Eden hazard comes to Arsenal. Sounds great doesn't it, but before you get carried away it all
hinges on whether Arsenal qualify for the Champions League group stages. According to some reports
the deal has been agreed in principal, but Arsenal must first dispose of Udinese in the second leg
of their Champions League [.
Juan Mata has been a target for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger all summer, but according to reports in
today's newspapers the midfielder is all set for a move to Chelsea. The 23-year-old midfielder was
also a target for Spurs, but the player himself was not keen on such a move which appeared to leave
There are a few interesting Arsenal transfer rumours about this morning, and these two regarding
Nicklas Bendtner and Eden Hazard would be most welcome to Arsenal fans if they are true. Firs of
all the Mail reports that the newly-rich Paris St. Germain have decided to make a move for Bendtner
and are actually willing [.
The Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has invested heavily in his team this year and is expected by
the new owners at Anfield to be challenging for a Champions League place this season, and this
weekends game against Arsenal will be a big test of their credentials. But Arsenal are looking
decidedly shaky going into the [.
The French midfielder Samir Nasri has confirmed that he is leaving Arsenal very soon to join
Manchester City, but he is not very happy with the way that he was treated by the Gunners fans at
this weekends match against Newcastle. When asked on Facebook about the propsed move to the
Eastlands, Nasri said on [.
Arsenal's crucial games against Liverpool and Man Utd in the next fortnight just got a little bit
harder as it has been revealed that the FA have given a retrospective three-match ban to Alexander
Song after his stamp on Joey Barton's legs went unnoticed by the referee. Gervinho was also given a
three-game ban for [.
Theo Walcott has picked a bad time to bring out his book which criticizes the England manager Fabio
Capello. In it he describes how the atmosphere before last years World Cup was tense and strained,
and how Capello ruined his confidence before even a ball had been kicked in anger. "There was
something very stiff [.
Arsene Wenger admits that Arsenal still need to bring in one or two more players to keep the
numbers up, but he will only bring in players that he believes will add "quality" to the squad. "We
are not frightened to spend money but we have to be convinced the player is better than what [...]
Although Nicklas Bendtner was insistent that he would be leaving Arsenal this summer, it seems that
he hasn't found the right club willing to pay Arsenal's asking price, and he may have to stay at
the Emirates for another season at least. Wenger has admitted a few times that Bendtner has been in
talks with [.
It has been confirmed by the the Turkish giants Galatasary that they are in talks to sign Emmanuel
Eboue from Arsenal. The popular reserve was not given a squad number by Arsene Wenger this season,
so it was only a matter of time I guess. Eboue may be missed (for a few weeks!) but what [...]
The news has just come in today that Arsenal Football Club has signed a deal with the Danish
Brewers Carlsberg to be their Official Beer Partner for the next three years, whatever that means!
I think it basically means that Carlsberg can directly target Arsenal fans all over the world (but
especially in the Far [.
All the reports (including the BBC) were told that Arsenal had agreed a Â£35m fee for Cesc Fabregas
plus another Â£5m in add-ons, but the Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has pooh-poohed that figure
and insists that they will pay less than 30m euros, which they stated before the negotiations
begam. Rosell said last night: "We [.
The Bolton boss Owen Coyle is loathe to let Gary Cahill leave the Reebok, but he understands that
the 25 year-old is ambitious and wants to play in the Champions League and at the highest level.
The Arsenal chief scout Steve Rowley was at QPR on Saturday to wact Cahill in imperious form, even
Arsenal and Barcelona have finally agreed terms for the Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas and the
Spaniard is set to be presented to the press as a Barcelona player at 1 p.m. this afternoon (BST).
The BBC reports that Arsenal have accepted just Â£30m for Fabregas with an extra Â£5m depending on
the trophies won by [.
The Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he may prefer to buy Samir Nasri from
Arsenal rather than the Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. It has become common knowledge that
Arsenal are preparing to sell the Frenchman and Man City are expecting to sign Nasri at Â£22m
although Wenger doesn't really want to sell him.
This is a Guest Post from Alan Machnik who is a comedian and an Arsenal supporter. This is his
first post on his new website called ArsenalBanter.com. It's fact that Arsenal fans definitely need
a sense of humour...... Through The Transfer Window by Alan Machnik It's that time of year when the
Transfer Window arrives [.
The rumours last week were saying that Arsenal were lining up the Brazilian Jadson from Shakhtar
Donetsk as a marquee signing to announce when Fabregas transfer to Barcelona is confirmed, but
Wenger was directly asked about it on Friday he said: "nowhere near on Jadson" and said the club
were "not talking to Shakhtar about [.
Arsenal can away from Newcastle with a point and a red card on the opening day of the season in a
game full of controversy. On his League debut for the Gunners, Gervinho will not gain many admirers
for the way he goes to ground, but he'll certainly have top marks for slapping Joey Barton! [...]
The Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton managed to get the Arsenal new-boy Gervinho sent off after
going to ground like he'd been hit by a train, but thinks that the Frenchman should have got sent
off for diving anyway. He said on his Twitter page last night: "I went down easy, no doubt. Still,
you can't [.
The Japanese genius Ryo Miyaichi may only have a handful of senior competitive games under his belt
in Europe, but Arsene Wenger believes that he can have a "big impact" on Arsenal's push for the
Premiership title this season. The Gunners have secured a UK work permit for the 18 year-old, but
Wenger reveals that [.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger promised the fans a "busy summer" and it looked like being
anything of the sort until now. But Wenger has now brought in Gervinho, Carl Jenkinson, Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell, and with the myriad departures (no names mentioned!) it
certainly HAS been a busy summer.
Adam Kemp â€“ Pathetic management from the most delusional has been in football. Many of you
readers may have been wondering where I have been hiding this past month. I did say I would give Mr
Wenger the opportunity to prove me wrong and strengthen the squad as promised. I told you in June
Arsene Wenger may have promised the Arsenal fans a new defender this summer (after Carl Jenkinson's
arrival I might add), but it seems that the return of Thomas Vermaelen (and maybe the departure of
Gael Clichy!) is enough for Wenger to believe that the defence has been improved enough. Wenger
hasn't seemed such a happy [.
Arsene Wenger was given complete control when the old Arsenal Board was in command at the Emirates,
and they were quite happy to let him run the team his way while the share price was growing
exponentially,but now there is a new man in control who has the main aim of making more money.
It seems that everyone and his dog now knows that Cesc Fabregas will be playing for Barcelona next
season (except Arsenal.com of course!) and it appears that Arsene Wenger has been dragging his feet
so that he has got his marquee signing ready to be unveiled at the same time. Whether that will
lessen the [.
With all the never-ending Arsenal transfer rumours about Fabregas and Nasri it has been a bit easy
to forget that Arsenal have a very important game coming up this weekend, and amazingly Arsene
Wenger has found time to give as an injury update ahead of the match. He is of the opinion that the
This transfer window seems to be getting crazier and crazier as the closing date approaches with
claims and counter claims coming thick and fast. The latest bit of Arsenal transfer news reported
all over the media yesterday was that the Gunners had "opened negotiations" with Birmingham for
their big defender Scott Dann, but today there [.
Arsene Wenger previously said that he wants all the problems associated with Samir Nasri and Cesc
Fabregas to be finished "before the season starts" but with the Gunners preparing to face Newcastle
that time is approaching rapidly. Last night in his pre-match conference he was (as always) asked
about the negotiations for the star duo [.
There will be many Arsenal fans a little surprised at Arsene Wenger's statement that he won't be
buying any more central defenders, as the four we have are enough for the team. Wenger has been
linked with the Werder Bremen centre-back Per Mertesacker, and was asked if there was any truth in
the rumours by [.
Arsene Wenger has promised the fans a big announcement tomorrow morning at his first pre-match
conference of the new season, and it is certainly going to include the sale of Cesc Fabregas to
Barcelona. There are whispers that he may be giving his decision on Samir Nasri as well, and
hopefully a couple of new [.
The Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has refused a new contract with the Gunners and has made it
clear that he wants to move to Man City this summer, despite Arsene Wenger saying that he would
rather forgo a sale and let Nasri run down the last year of his contract. But now that the Fabregas
There are hundreds of Arsenal transfer rumours around in the media, but I prefer to keep an eye on
the bookies to see who is being backed to join Arsenal in this transfer window than relying on half
made-up transfer news in the papers. Today I have noticed a very big move in the market [...]
Arsene Wenger has promised the Arsenal fans a new defender before the end of the transfer window,
but there is no imminent signing on the horizon so far despite the big words. Kyle Bartley was
thought to be nearly ready to take the step up to the Arsenal first team, but after Wenger sent him
According to a report from the respected UK newspaper The Guardian this evening, the Barcelona
officials are convinced that Arsenal have finally given in on the price of Cesc Fabregas and he is
set to join the European champions imminently. Matt Scott reports that Barca "officials let slip
excitement" over the deal this evening,, and [.
The war between Pro- and Anti-Wenger supporters seems to be getting more angry every day,
especially as the Fabregas and Nasri sagas seem to be a never-ending thorn in our sides. There are
daily slanging matches on nearly every single Arsenal Blog on the web, and Ian Wright seems to
think that if Arsene Wenger [.
The France international team manager seems to talk quite a lot about things that don't concern
him, and if I was one of his charges in the France team I wouldn't be happy that he revealed the
content of private conversations. But as we are Arsenal fans, then of course we want to know what
Both Liverpool and Arsenal are both looking for a top class centre-back to shore up their defences
ahead of the new Premiership season, and according to reports they are both trying to decide
between the same pair of candidates. The Mail reports that Pat Rice and Steve Crowley were both
among the scouts at Tottenham's [.
The Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh believes that both Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri will be
leaving the Emirates this summer, and thinks that they would have already have left if Arsene
Wenger had managed to locate the right replacement to come in their places. Speaking to L'Equipe
yesterday, Chamakh was asked his opinion about his [.
As predicted on Just Arsenal yesterday morning, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain quickly agreed personal
terms with the Gunners yesterday and is now officially an Arsenal player, and we can expect this to
be swiftly followed by an official annuncement about the Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell as well.
But all Arsenal Fans are clamouring for the (far [.
As the Premier League opening games draw nearer there certainly seems to be some movement in the
Arsenal transfer market. The arrival of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain surprised nobody but it seems that
Arsene Wenger will quickly recoup his expenditure when Samir Nasri joins Manchester City. For a
manager that hates paying over the odds for great [.
This is probably the news that Arsene Wenger has been dying to hear more than any other this
summer, as he believes that the little Japanese star Ryo Miyaichi will be a more than adequate
replacement for Samir Nasri. Now that Miyaichi is in the squad Wenger can happily take the millions
on offer from [.
There is a report in this mornings Telegraph that seems to be certain that Arsenal will finalise
the deal for Alex Oxlade Chamberlain from Southampton this week. The two clubs have apparently
agreed on a price of Â£12m (Â£7m in cash plus Â£5m in add-ons) and personal terms will be discussed
with the youngster this [.
The ex-Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein believes you can't write-off Arsene Wenger achievements and
expects that the Frenchman will still come good for the Gunners if e is just given time to sort
things out. Dein said: "Arsene is very focused and very determined. I see a man who still has as
much fire in the [.
Arsene Wenger was hoping for a good test for his Arsenal team this week as it was the last warm-up
before the beginning of the Premiership and he put out the strongest team available to him, but not
ony did it end in defeat, the Gunners also sustained a few injuries. Walcott, Wilshere, Diaby,
Arsenal lost todays last pre-season friendly against Benfica and Arsene Wenger thinks that the
reason they were defeated was because we were missing key players. Okay, so lets have a look at the
team that played: Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Rosicky, Van Persie, Ramsey, Song, Djourou, Gervinho,
Arshavin, Gibbs Subs: Fabianski, Squillaci, Jenkinson, Chamakh, Traore, Frimpong, [.
Arsene Wenger understands that some Arsenal fans have become frustrated with the lack of movement
in the transfer market and has explained what he thinks the reasons are behind it, but he is
hopeful that he can announce the signing of a "super-quality" player next week. "Ideally I would
have finished all our business but [.
Arsene Wenger has been giving a full injury round-up as the Arsenal squad prepares for the final
pre-season game against Benfica, and it seems that Laurent Koscielny has been added to the list of
missing players. "Walcott is back in training but he is not ready just yet," Wenger said. "Wilshere
is injured on his [.
What on Earth is going on with Arsene Wenger and Cesc Fabregas? It seemed like it was a business
relationship that went wrong, but now it is turning into a soap opera. Arsene Wenger took Cesc
Fabregas away from Pep Guardiola (his first love) and tried to persuade him that his life would be
There is one centre-back that will not be at Arsenal next season, as it has been revealed this
morning that the 20 year-old Kyle Bartley will be returning to Rangers for the whole of the coming
season. He made 9 appearances for the Scottish giants while on loan last season before an injury
cut his [.
There is very little actual Arsenal transfer news about today, but there are lots of rumours! The
main story seems to be the appearance of Cesc Fabregas at the Members Day at the Emirates. Although
he was applauded by the crowd, most papers have got pictures of him looking decidedly glum and
sulky at in [.
Arsenal will find out today who they will face in the two-legged Champions League Qualifier later
this month, but it seems that the challenge will be made much harder because of some top players
missing from Arsene Wenger's squad. Robin Van Persie and Samir Nasri are both suspended for the
first leg, and all the [.
The France international team manager Laurent Blanc is unlikely to pick Samir Nasri for next weeks
international friendly. Nasri is currently injured anyway, but Blanc thinks that the uncertainty of
where he will be playing next season is also causing him problems on the pitch. Nasri's form
dropped off for club and country in the [.
After the tortuous rollercoaster of the On-Off transfer of Juan Mata to Arsenal, it seems that
Valencia now seem certain that the Spanish midfielder will be staying in Spain for the forseeable
future. The Valencia boss Unai Emery made it clear that he believes Mata has decided to refuse a
move to the Emirates.
Here is a bit of Arsenal transfer news with a difference it consists of two denials! First off
