When one door closes, Arsenal fans, it is always nice if another one opens. So although there is some bad news for the Gunners in our pursuit of a top class central midfielder who will add some much needed steel to our creative flair, there is no need for despair. The bad news, according to [...]
No pressure, Olivier, but I think the big Frenchman could soon find himself sitting on the Arsenal bench more often than he is on the pitch. Because unless Arsene Wenger has a complete change of mind, then the Gunners will be playing in our usual system of 4-3-3 and that means just one central striker.
We all know that a vast majority of Arsenal transfer rumours in the papaersa turn out to be fit only for wrapping up fish n chips. But not all of them, and Arsenal have been strongly linked with Morgan Schneiderlin, Sami Khedira and Lars Bender all summer, and we may soon find out which, if [...]
It seemed a bit strange at the time, to me anyway, that Arsenal signed Calum Chambers from Southampton. After all, we had already signed Mathieu Debuchy as a replacement for Bacary Sagna at right back, and then we had Carl Jenkinson and Hector Bellerin as back-up options. But that was because I only thought of [.
The best of Mesut Ozil could be on show this seasonb by SE It is not uncommon for any player making the switch to the Premier League, especially at Arsenal, to not realize their full potential in their very first season – and Mesut Ozil is no odd case in this regard. The German, though, [...]

One of the most important things for Arsenal last season, in my opinion, was the fact that we got our home fortress back and started making teams seriously worried about facing us. Of course there were those bad beatings away from home at Anfield and Stamford Bridge, but they were rare exceptions to the rule.
Arsenal fans know all too well the problems that an injury can cause. From having two of our most promising young players in years, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere, nearly having their careers ended before they began, to having Abou Diaby suffer enough injuries for a whole team.

Will Jenkinson ever start for Arsenal? by TJ When Jenkinson played his first ever match wearing an Arsenal shirt, many were skeptical about his ability.

Yaya Sanogo deserving of a place in the Arsenal squad? Signed on a free transfer by Arsenal in the summer after the 2012-2013 season, Yaya Sanogo was thought to be able to provide good enough cover for Olivier Giroud.

Injuries and Arsenal are two words that been synonymous with each other in recent years. And last season reached a whole new level, with the Gunners losing more player days to injury than any other Premier League team. About twice as many as our big rivals, and there is no doubt that it affected Arsenal's [.
For Arsene Wenger to be speaking of Calum Chambers in terms of what he might bring to Arsenal, is almost as good as seeing the transfer officially announced on the Arsenal website. So I am assuming that the 19-year old will be announced as a new member of the Gunners this week. But, depending on [...
We have all heard plenty about the Arsenal wage structure and it has sometimes been a real bone of contention for the fans who just want to see the best players come to play for us. But even now that Wenger has a lot more money to spend, he is not going to start paying [...]

There is an Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds that suggests that Arsene Wenger is set to offer the Portuguese winger Luis Nani a way out of his Old Trafford nightmare. But while I am not saying that the 27-year old is a rubbish player or that he is past it, I just do not [...]
When Arsenal completed the club record transfer of Mesut Ozil last summer, it had a hugely positive effect on both Arsenal fans and players alike. But there were a few dissenting voices among us and in the media, not doubting the quality of the Germany international, just whether he was what the Gunners really needed.
The fact that Jack Wilshere returned to pre-season training with Arsenal a few days early was a good start. But the England international is well aware that he must do more than that.

Could the absence of German trio be a blessing in disguise? by Blaz Wenger said yesterday he will probably rest Arsenal's World cup winning trio of Germans for the first game of the season against Crystal Palace.

For quite a while now, it has not been the easiest job in the world to be an Arsenal fan. Not only have we had to endure the club's slide from the pinnacle of becoming the only team not to lose a single game in a Premier League season, but have had to bite our [...]
After the fantastic signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, Arsenal are now set to announce their second (of many?) new arrival today according to a report in this morning's Independent. It was actually reported over a week ago that the Newcastle United defender Matthieu Debuchy had passed a medical at Arsenal, but since then there [.
Why Giroud should not be Arsenal's starting striker next year!! By Henry12 We all know that the transfer window is on and heating up. Arsenal have been linked to many great talents around the football world; Remy, Bony, Balotelli, Cavani etc. With Arsenal already completing deals for Sanchez, Khedira (maybe), and Debuchy (maybe), we as [.
Can Arsene Wenger prove Jose Mourinho wrong once again? by SE "He is a specialist in failure. 8 years without a piece of silverware, that is failure" were the words coming from the putrid Portuguese, who didn't fail to mince his words when he held parties for journalists on Friday evenings as part of pre-match [.
Fifa financial fairplay is toothless by dboy Looking at how other teams (certainly not Arsenal!) are still splashing cash and going about their business as if UEFA's Financial Fairplay (FFP) does not exist, makes one to feel for the smaller teams. It almost seem like FFP has more of an effect on them then on [.
Maybe I am wrong about Michael Owen having a huge bias against Arsenal and for his former clubs, Liverpool and Man United. Maybe, but I do not think so, as the former England striker seems to go out of his way to criticise us and predict doom and gloom for the Gunners. That is probably [...]
It is not too often in recent years that we have seen the Arsenal manager grinning like the Chesire cat from Alice in Wonderland, but that is how the Frenchman looks in some of the photos from today's training session at London Colney. I don't blame him either, because this time of year is usually [.
I am sure that a fair few Arsenal fans have been thinking that the name of Abou Diaby will always be linked with other players who have failed to live up to their potential, whether through injury problems like the Frenchman or because of things that they did or failed to do themselves. But even [...
There is a lot to be said for the impact that a good team morale can have on the performances of the players, both as individuals and as a collective unit, so the fact the Gunners' new signing Alexis Sanchez seems to be creating the same sort of buzz around the club as the arrival [...]
There is little doubt that Arsenal were on the wrong end of some terrible luck last season. I am not blaming our bad luck for everything, of course, as there seems to have been a definite underlying problem for the Gunners to have had so many injury problems throughout the season. And I am not [...]
When there were a few Arsenal transfer rumours towards the end of last season, linking our Spanish midfield magician Santi Cazorla with a possible move back to La Liga with Atletico Madrid, I did not think there was anything to it. After all, he had signed a new Arsenal contract in March and seen the [.
How should we line up against big teams this season? by KJ With Arsenal due to make 2 or 3 more signings this week and with the start of the Premier League season only a month away, it seems as good time as any to start postulating what our line up would be against the [...]
Hey Arsenal fans, do not get me wrong! I love the fact that Arsene Wenger no longer seems to be like the Gunners' own Ebeneezer Scrooge, carefully counting the pennies and looking for the cheapest possible way to make ends meet. But I am also a little concerned that we might be making a mistake [...]
Which United player should Arsenal ask for in return for Thomas Vermaelen? AT It is being reported by Jeremy Wilson of the Daily Telegraph that Wenger is only interested in selling Vermaelen to Man Utd providing that Arsenal receive a United player in return. But which United player would we ask for in any potential [.
Arsenal's German Connection by Big Gun Hi Gooners It has been a while since I last posted. I just want to start off by saying thanks to the Admin for keeping this site the NO1 place to be when you are not either watching the Gunners live or on the tele. Also, lots of respect [...]
Does the acquisition of Sanchez signal a change in the way Arsenal might lineup next season? by SE With the capturing of Alexis Sanchez from the Catalan giants Barcelona, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have sent out a raucous warning to their Premier League opponents ahead of the new season. Sanchez played a pivotal role in [.
Arsenal have been beaten to the signature of the 18-year old midfielder, Kingsley Coman, by the Serie A club Juventus. The teenager is so highly thought of that the likes of Bayern Munich were also keen on taking him after he decided to leave the French champions PSG, in order to secure more regular playing [.
I know that the Arsenal players need to have a break in the summer to relax and recover from the stresses and strains that their minds and bodies are put under during a gruelling season. And those Arsenal stars that have been at the World Cup finals in Brazil will have a shorter break than [...]
There was a bit of head scratching among the Arsenal fans last week, after we had built ourselves up to expect a possible three new signings to celebrate on the say that the new Arsenal kits by PUMA were officially unveiled. The one we got, Alexis Sanchez, was a top class piece of transfer action, [.
Rules, Current Players & Hopeful New Signings for Arsenal by Crack Clubs cannot name more than 17 non home-grown players aged over 21. With a further 8 home-grown players making a total of 25 man squad. Many have misinterpreted this as meaning clubs have to register 8 homegrown players, which isn't true – clubs could [.
'Arsenal fans now have a responsibility' by Le Prof Knows..... As the curtain closes on the World Cup, our focus turns to the opening day of Arsenal's season against Crystal Palace. Clearly, this is going to be an exciting season and from our point of view, one of the most exciting for years. With Sanchez [.
Why winning the World Cup is important for Özil and Arsenal by KJ Germany have just won the World Cup in dramatic fashion and Özil was the 3rd best player on the pitch for me (after Boateng and Schweinsteiger). Him winning the World Cup is a great feat and it will be important for him [...]
Giroud has to improve next season by KJ Giroud has had two good seasons with Arsenal but he will need to improve next season and I expect him to. Here's why: 1. He is fully adjusted to the league now. It is always difficult for a new player in the Premier League, especially when you [...]
I have not been exactly worried about the transfer of Mathieu Debuchy to Arsenal, because the deal was supposed to have been agreed between the player, his club Newcastle United and the Gunners last week. But we all know that until a transfer is officially announced, there is always the chance that something could go [.
It looks like Arsenal could soon have five World Cup winning players in the squad, when previously it was only our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla with one of FIFA's top medals to his name. After Germany beat Argentina in extra time on Sunday night, three more Gunners joined Cazorla, and according to a Daily [.
That's it Arsenal fans! The World Cup is over and we have nearly a month to wait before our Gunners are back in serious action. Arsene Wenger will be heading back from Brazil where he has been on pundit duty for French TV, and we are all hoping that the Frenchman is going to get [...]
As always on a Sunday there is no shortage of Arsenal transfer rumours, and todays offerings include a couple of goalkeepers. The Mirror reckons that the Gunners have dropped interest in David Marshall because of the asking price, but are now going for another relegated keeper in Norwich's John Ruddy.
The Arsenal boss has been talking about the new Manchester United boss, Louis Van Gaal, and how he thinks that the Dutchman will help United back into challenging the current Top Four for the title next season, but doesn't even consider that Tottenham will be part of the battle! "He is going to be a [.
Arsenal fans are still waiting impatiently for the club to officially announce their second senior signing of the summer, and hopefully when Wenger returns to the fold from Brazil we can see some new faces unveiled. But in the meantime, there are numerous papers (The Telegraph, Mirror, Metro, Express, Mail and Star to name a [.
Matthieu Flamini is in a confident mood ahead of the new Arsenal season, and reckons that if the Gunners can get over our injury problems there is no reason why we cannot win more trophies in the coming season. In the transfer window all Arsenal fans are hoping for new arrivals, but surely if we [...
I know that I am biased. It comes with the membership card when you become an Arsenal fan. But I scared the life out of my dog and the wife when I saw the board go up for a Germany substitution just before the end of the World Cup final at the Maracana stadium in [...]
Why this is Jack Wilshere's season by AT It's been three seasons now since Wilshere suffered an injury that would rule him out of an entire year of football and would lead him to have surgery that could've potentially ended his footballing career. Now he's played for the majority of the last two seasons but [.
With many of the Arsenal transfer rumours of the summer so far linking the Gunners with a move for a central midfielder with a defensive mind set, heavy work rate and tackling skills, together with youth and energy, the Arsenal fans have been rubbing their hands together. The signing of a player like Arturo Vidal, [.
It seemed at the start of the week that Loic Remy would have been announced as a new Arsenal player by now, along with his team mate at Newcastle last season Mathieu Debuchy. However, only the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona has been officially confirmed by the Gunners, so what is the hold-up?
And then there was one! Arsenal targets for the defensive midfield role I am talking about, because the list of possible players to bring that much needed steel to the Gunners midfield, which has been whittled down during the summer to the trio of Sami Khedira, Morgan Schneiderlin and Lars Bender, could now have just [.
The Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott has shown his delight with the Gunners new signing Alexis Sanchez. The speedy Englishman has tweeted what a terrific move it is for the club and even been pictured with a beaming smile on his face while holding up one of the new PUMA kits with the Chilean's [.
A tactical analysis and the importance of Giroud. by JC Though there were a lot of positives taken from last season, diversity and efficiency in attack was more often than not, not one of them and injuries to key players was largely to blame. Walcott had matured in leaps and bounds the previous two seasons [.
Going through the Arsenal transfer rumours today, I saw that our reported pursuit of the Germany international Sami Khedira was being put under serious threat by Jose Mourinho, who also wants to sign the central midfielder from his former club, Real Madrid. Let him I say. The Express are reporting that Chelsea are ready to [.
Sanchez and Arsenal by Twig By signing Alexis Sanchez, Wenger has made good his claim last Summer when he said that he wasn't looking for a striker to replace Olivier Giroud but one who can play alongside Giroud. Suarez, whom Arsenal chased so fervently last Summer fit that criteria as he could play on the [.
Arsenal have made an excellent signing by persuading Alexis Sanchez to move to the Emirates, and perhaps he could be the last piece of the jigsaw that turns the Gunners into the Super Club that can challenge for every top trophy on offer. Sanchez himself certainly seems to think so! Sanchez said in the Star: [.
One round of ovation for Fabregas, please By AondoaverK When Cesc Fabregas decided to join Chelsea, many Arsenal fans had divided opinions. For many, it was unbelievable to pass the chance of resigning one of the most adored players of all time. But it was understandable that his playing position had enough quality and dept [.
Remember what a boost the signing of Mesut Ozil gave the whole of Arsenal Football Club last August? Well it seems to be happening again with the capture of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona. There is maybe not quite such a big reaction to this one from the media and from Arsenal fans, but the last [...]
It has been reported in the Arsenal transfer news in the media that Arsene Wenger has already wrapped up the transfer of the French international Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United to replace his fellow countryman Bacary Sagna as the Arsenal right back. But there is uncertainty about the future of the Gunners back-up for the [.
Were the AKB's right all along? by MrGavis Hi fellow Gooners. It has not always easy being an Arsenal fan. As you all know we recently ended a run of 9 seasons without winning a trophy. During that time the fans have famously divided into two groups the AKB's (Arsene Knows Best) and the WOB's [...]
Everyone, including the Independent, reported last week that Newcastle's Matthieu Debuchy had taken a medical with Arsenal, but there has not been the expected confirmation from the official site. In fact there have been very few reports since Monday. Now the deal may or may not be still be on the table, but there are [.
If Arsenal could get Sami Khedira as well as Alexis Sanchez then this would just about qualify as the best transfer window ever for Gooners. The Metro is today reporting that Arsene Wenger could be pulling out of the deal as the German international wants a big hike in his wages, but surely with the [.
Thoughts on Alex and the Puma kit by KM Arsenal have signed Alexis Sanchez. And it was nicely timed with our new Puma kit being revealed. I have to admit i've been giving Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis a lot of stick in recent times but they really did their homework. What a way to [...]
I don't know about the rest pf you Arsenal fans, but I have been loving the World Cup finals in Brazil. No Arsenal players getting injured helps, of course, but right from the start the games have been exciting, unpredictable and full of goals. And the semi-final between the host nation Brazil and Germany was [.
The Home Grown Rule And How It Will Affect Arsenal's Purchases. by Supertuur Yesterday I wrote an article about the 25 squad rule and how it effect decisions about who to Loan/Sell and who to keep. Today I want to look at the home grown rule. The home grown rule is another rule that limits [...]
Arsenal have been in this situation ourselves, on more than one occasion. In fact, the club is in it right now, with the club captain and defender Thomas Vermaelen. So we know what it feels like when a player has just one year left on his current contract. The good news for the Gunners, is [...]
What the Ozil and Sanchez signings means for Arsenal moving forward. by KJ 10 days into the transfer window and it's been finalized at last. Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal. After weeks filled with jealousy looking over at rival signings wishing for one we finally have our own. The questions of Wenger's inactivity while in Brazil [.
Arsenals edits in squad numbers For any of you beady eyed people out there you may have noticed that new boy Alexis Sanchez has got Nacho Monreal's number 17. But fear not Arsenal fans for I think I may have found Arsenals squad numbers for next season. Listed below for anyone who's interested. 1. Wojciech [.
When it became clear that our new signing Alexis Sanchez had made Arsenal his choice, despite interest from the Italian champions Juventus and some of our big rivals in the Premier League, the arrogance of the Liverpool fans rose to the surface. They hit out at the Chilean and us via social media, accusing him [.
PUMA INTRODUCES THE ARSENAL HOME, AWAY AND CUP KITS FOR 2014/15 FOOTBALL SEASON New Kit Trilogy Revealed through Spectacular Water Projection on the River Thames London, United Kingdom – PUMA last night introduced the much-anticipated Arsenal Football Club kits for the 2014/15 football season. The Home, Away and Cup kits were revealed through a spectacular [.
There have been many Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Spaniard Mikel Arteta with a move away from the Emirates, but according to his agent the 32 year-old will be seeing out the last year of his contract with the Gunners. Fiorentina were rumoured to be interested, but Arteta's representative, Inaki Ibanez, has categorically stated that [.
All Arsenal fans are expecting a bumper payout tomorrow (forever to be known as PUMA Day for the forseeable future!) as it has been confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is ready to be unveiled, plus the news that Martin Debuchy has passed his medical at the Emirates. According to the Mirror, QPR's prolific striker Loic Remy [.
With the launch of the new Arsenal kit and other training gear and merchandise designed by the club's new commercial partners NIKE later today, Arsenal fans are expecting it to be accompanied by the announcement of some new players to strengthen our hunt for another trophy. The arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona seems to [.
There have been plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours already this summer and quite a large portion of those have centred around our search, if Arsene Wenger is actually searching this time, for the player to bolster the midfield and give us more defensive strength. Today there is a report in the Daily Mail that claims [.
Özil, Mertesacker and Podolski won't return to Arsenal until the season begins by KJ With Germany winning their game against Brazil (emphatically I might add) securing their place in the final of the World Cup, it now means that our three Germans in Brazil will most likely take no part in preseason and might even [.
WHY LOIC REMY AND MATHIEU DEBUCHY WILL BE GOOD SIGNINGS FOR ARSENAL Hello folks. As we eagerly await the ‘gifts' that ‘Puma Day' promises to bring, I would like to discuss the wisdom behind some of the expected signings we have been hearing about. They are none other than Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy, two [.
At least we can all rest easy as sky sports have finally confirmed that Alexis Sanchez has passed a medical at Arsenal. It seems that he has signed a four year deal worth 32m to Barcelona. Here is the excerpt from the Sky transfer centre. We're hearing that Chile forward Alexis Sanchez has now passed [.
Maybe Arsene Wenger had lost his keys to the Arsenal transfer war chest until this week, but it seems like the Frenchman has now found them and is ready to start splashing the cash. Today has already seen the stunning capture of the brilliant Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, which has got Gooners grinning from ear [.
It looks like the Arsenal comeback from the dark days of selling some of our best players; like Ashley Cole, Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, is well on the way. After Arsene Wenger smashed the club transfer record for Mesut Ozil last summer, it looks like the Frenchman is set to spend [.
The expectation among Arsenal fans, built to a crescendo by the Arsenal transfer rumours in the media, is that Arsene Wenger is set to announce the first big name signings of the summer transfer window tomorrow. The fact that this announcement will happily coincide with the fans' chance to spend their money on the new [.
According to the latest rumblings from the Arsenal transfer rumour mill, Arsene Wenger is still interested in the former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou. But the likelihood of the Ivory Coast international coming back to the Premier League with Arsenal this summer, has just got a lot smaller, as we have been told that his price [.
There is a theory that the Arsenal manager is waiting until the World Cup is over before he makes a couple of key decisions about some of the moves he is going to make in the summer transfer window. Arsene Wenger said as much himself at the end of last season. If one of those [...]
The 25 Squad Rule And What It Means For Arsenal's Transfer Window. by Supertuur As a true Arsenal fan I have been following the articles and discussions on Just Arsenal regarding the transfer activity that is up and coming. It looks like Arsenal are close to signing a new RB in Debuchy and Winger/Striker in [.
ARSENAL FOOTBALL CLUB REACHES FOUR MILLION FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER from Arsenal.com Gunners become third sports team in world to reach four million mark..... Arsenal Football Club has reached four million followers on Twitter. The Gunners are the first sports team in the United Kingdom to reach the landmark, and the third in the world after [.
Arsene Wenger himself has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of putting pen to paper on a contract with Arsenal Football Club. This is the news that we have been expecting and waiting for, but it is good to hear some official confirmation, especially after last summer, when we all expected the Gunners [.
This is pure comedy gold for Arsenal fans, although if there was even the slightest chance of it actually being successful, I would certainly not be smiling. Our north London rivals, Tottenham, must have got their hands on something very powerful and mind-bending to smoke if this transfer rumour report by Metro is true.
Do Arsenal need Loic Remy? by AT It has been reported this evening that Loic Remy is close to a move to Arsenal. This has been reported by the Mirror and known Arsenal journalist, John Cross. It is thought that the fee will be around £8 million and that seems decent value for a squad [...]
Wow, Arsenal fans, just wow! The Gunners are going to have to wait a little bit longer to get our players back, after Germany just dealt out the sort of beating that the Brazil team might not easily comer back from. What a shame that Chelsea have managed to offload the calamity that was David [...]
The Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has been left out of the Germany starting XI again for their World Cup semi-final against Brazil. Maybe this should be a concern for Arsenal fans as well as the BFG himself. We have always known that Per was not the quickest over the ground, but has made up for [.
Although Arsene Wenger has worked hard on the Arsenal academy, making it one of his major focus points since he took over as manager of the Gunners nearly 20 years ago, the Frenchman is not averse to keeping an eye on the young players making a name for themselves at other clubs. Southampton have rightly [.
Maybe Paul Breitner is looking for a job in the English media, because they always seem to be on the lookout for criticism of Arsenal and their players. Or maybe I am just touchy, but it seems to have become a national pastime to knock the Gunners, Arsene Wenger and anyone who plays for him. [...]
Arsenal should try Theo out on the left by AT Theo Walcott is an integral member of this Arsenal squad and it has become apparent in his absence. We struggled to deal damage to the opposition on the counter and they were able to press us without any pace in our front three to punish [...]
There is excellent bit of Arsenal transfer news today as the local Liverpool rag the Liverpool Echo have reported that Alexis Sanchez has turned down a move to Anfield in favour of Arsenal. This is a direct quote from the article: Liverpool FC have been forced to admit defeat in their attempts to sign Barcelona [.
Many of the Arsenal transfer rumours in recent days have involved the Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, with it becoming increasingly likely that the likes of Liverpool, Man United and Juventus are falling behind in the race to sign the Chile international. In fact, today, most of the media in England, Spain and Italy are reporting [.
An Arsenal bone of contention by SB "But isn't this what you all wanted, a big name player?" No, I mean yes, but but but.. he was a panic buy to please the fans. We needed a beast of a DM and a Striker. "Why do you say that? Its not as if Cazorla, Rosicky [...]
There is little doubt that Arsenal will have a new club captain for the coming season, with current vice0captain Mikel Arteta and Germany international defender Per Mertesacker the stand out candidates. Not only does the current captain not feature on the pitch all that often, but his desire to move to another club is hardly [.
There is no suggestion that this is a vital part of the deal that will see Arsenal complete the transfer of the France international right back Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United, but Alan Pardew want to see the young Gunner Carl Jenkinson move in the other direction, according to a Daily Mail report.
It is not long now, Arsenal fans, until the Gunners are back in the action. In four weeks time, we will already have had the Emirates Cup, with games against Benfica and AS Monaco at the Emirates stadium. Then Arsene Wenger takes his Arsenal team to Wembley for the Community Shield against Man City before [.
Arsenal should sign Keylor Navas With Costa Rica going out of the World Cup last night, there is one player who we should be looking to add to our Arsenal squad next season and it isn't Joel Campbell – I'm talking about their star keeper, Keylor Navas. He has been outstanding during this World Cup [.
Every Arsenal fan knew that the Gunners simply had to buy a striker, a defensive midfielder and a right-back as the main priority this summer, and now that we are close to finalising deals for Matthieu Debuchy and Alexis Sanchez, it seems that Arsene Wenger has now moved on to the third and final piece [.
There was great expectations when Mesut Ozil joined Arsenal last summer, but after being injured in the second half of the season his form seemed to be on the wane and he started to become anonymous in some games. There was talk that he may not even make Joachim Low's World Cup squad but the [...]
There have been numerous Arsenal rumours saying that Thomas Vermaelen will be signing for Manchester United imminently, despite a terse denial from the Belgian international while he was in Brazil. But now Belgium are out of the competition it seems that Vermaelen has been talking to the Belgian press, and has admitted that he does [.
Who to follow this summer for Arsenal transfer news? by AT The window has just opened and the rumours are heating up with Arsenal in advanced talks with both Barcelona and Newcastle for Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy respectively. However, how do you know who to trust? Well I'm going to list three twitter accounts [.
There is no doubt that the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has had his fair share of bad luck and trouble in his short football career. And last season was no different, with more niggling injuries preventing him from having a big impact on the Arsenal season. Then the Arsenal man was savaged on [.
Well, Gooners, the only Arsenal players still involved in the World Cup finals in Brazil are the German trio of Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker and Mesut Ozil. Does that make us Arsenal fans honorary Germans now? I will certainly be supporting them more than usual and they are certainly an easier team to support than [.
This week there have been reports that Joel Campbell's agent has been discussing the Costa Rica stars possible move to Italy for a price of 16 million, but now that possibility has been blown out of the water and Campbell can't wait to play for Arsenal next season. Campbell's real agent, Joaquim Batica, has angrily [.
I am sure that I was not the only Arsenal fan to be surprised when the starting line-ups were announced for last night's World Cup quarter-final between France and Germany, because instead of five Gunners, only Mesut Ozil started the game. The biggest surprise was the fact that Joachim Low had dropped Per Mertesacker to [.
While Arsene Wenger is frolicking around in Brazil, it seems that Arsenal representatives have been making hay while the sun shines and are closing in on their top targets. The Gunners will start selling the new PUMA kits from the 10th July so we can expect a few announcements of new arrivals, just in time [.
It looks like Arsenal are closing in on some of their transfer targets. Hopefully the launch of the new PUMA kit next week will allow Arsenal fans to finally get excited about some completed transfers, instead of the thin gruel of Arsenal transfer rumours that we have had so far this summer. The media seem [.
The captain and keeper of the Spain national team, IKer Casillas, could be ready to make a shock summer transfer to Arsenal and the Premier League, bringing down the curtain on a 23-year career with his boyhood club Real Madrid. The 33-year old had looked a certain bet to go on and register the record [.
Well, another two Arsenal players were eliminated from the World Cup earlier. The Arsenal captain, who may not be with us for too much longer, had to watch from the bench as his Belgium team were beaten by Argentina. Then young Joel Campbell's Costa Rica went out on penalties to the Dutch. But fair play [.
I don't think the Gooners need to be too worried about the latest piece of Arsenal transfer news concerning the Barcelona star Alexis Sanchez. If the rumours about the Gunners offering the 25-year old Chilean a long term contract on around £130,000 a week are true, that is. Because the Metro has claimed that our [.
I know that we have already been told, apparently, by one player that he would be joining Arsenal this summer, although Serge Aurier's nod to an Arsenal fan during an Ivory Coast friendly game now seems more like the Ivorian revealing his wish than an actual agreement with the club. This time, as a Metro [.
Hunt for the right, right back – DEBUCHY VS SAGNA VS AURIER by SG Ever since Sagna refused a contract extension transfer gossip columns have been a- washed with potential right back rumors. Among the multitude of players linked with Arsenal, two names are more likely than others – Mathieu Debuchy and Serge Aurier Quite [.
Do not get too excited Arsenal fans, because even though the Gunners have managed to beat our premier League rivals Liverpool to the signing of this Finland international, there is little chance that we will actually see him playing in the Arsenal first team, at least not in the coming season. Hugo Keto is a [.
Should Arsenal buy Cuadrado? by AT Today, Brazil managed to knock out an impressive Columbia from the World Cup. This means players have the opportunity to mull over offers that their agents have received. Arsenal have been linked with Cuadrado on numerous occasions and with us being in for a pacey winger, it makes sense [.
It looks like the Arsenal captain is not going to change his mind about leaving the club. And recent transfer rumours suggest that Thomas Vermaelen has already agreed the personal terms of his potential transfer to Manchester United, where the new Dutch manager Louis van Gaal is apparently planning to use the Belgium international as [.
I wish that Arsene Wenger would hurry up and seal the deal to bring Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal, because the longer the talks go on without a concrete resolution, the more chance there is of it turning into another Gonzalo Higuain situation. And media reports suggest that both of our Premier League rivals from Manchester [.
I think that almost all Arsenal fans, at one time or another, have wondered whether Arsene Wenger was on another planet transfer-wise. Some of the signings the Frenchman has made since joining Arsenal, like Vieira, Henry and Fabregas, have been unbridled genius, while some, like Bendtner, Squillaci and Gervinho are best forgotten.
It was a little odd to see the starting line-ups for this World Cup quarter-final, because I was expecting there to be a healthy Arsenal contingent between the two teams. Only Mesut Ozil started this crucial game between France and Germany, though, with all the others on the bench. There was some good news for [.
The first of the World Cup quarter-finals in Brazil today holds an extra special fascination for Arsenal fans (as if we would not be watching avidly anyway). The battle between the France team of Didier Deschamps and the Germany of Joachim Low could include no less than five of the current Arsenal team and at [.
It would appear that Arsenal are no longer in the hunt to sign Serge Aurier, as it is now being reported that the Gunners have officially approached Newcastle United over their French international right-back Mathieu Debuchy. Sources from Sky Sports are convinced that a move has been made after the Frenchman told reporters that he [.
Arsenal fans were all saying "Joel Who?" when Arsene Wenger spent a million pounds on signing the unknown Costa Rican Joel Campbell three years ago, but now he has been thrust into the spotlight with some brilliant performances at the World Cup. Campbell has never even played a competitive game for Arsenal as his three [.
Khedira won't join Arsenal as a defensive midfielder There have been reports today that we've launched a move for Sami Khedira of Real Madrid with figures north of £20million being touted. But I think this is an unlikely transfer for numerous reasons and I'll be listing them. Khedira is not a defensive midfielder.
Maybe it is just the way these things go in the media, but the Arsenal transfer rumours a couple of weeks ago were building to a crescendo about Mario Balotelli and it really did appear as if the controversial Italian was going to become an Arsenal player this summer. Hints from the 23-year old himself, [.
It certainly seems as though one Arsenal target, Mathieu Debuchy, has edged ahead of the player he could be about to replace, Bacary Sagna, at least as far as their international careers go. And that could just prove to be the decisive factor in whether or not the Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Newcastle United [.
The latest Arsenal transfer rumours are saying that the Gunners can forget about getting Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, as he seems certain to be joining Liverpool as part of the deal for Luis Suarez. Even the Arsenal old-boy Perry Groves has admitted that he thinks the Chile international will be on his way to Anfield.
Despite quite a few pundits and sections of the media, and the Arsenal fans, grabbing the nearest stick to beat Mesut Ozil with because of his perceived flop in his debut season as a Gunner, there is no doubt that Arsene Wenger sees him as a key member of the Arsenal team. Hopefully that will [...]
Things could finally be starting to happen for Arsenal fans in the summer transfer window, as the papers are reporting that the Gunners could soon have too shiny new players among their ranks. As well as Arsenal looking favourites to snap up Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona and under the noses of Liverpool, we could be [.
We are still not really any the wiser as to whether the Costa Rica international Joel Campbell will be playing his club football for Arsenal in the coming season, or whether the 22-year old will be spending a fourth season out on loan from his parent club. He is certainly going to get a chance [...]
Yes Arsenal fans, we have finally completed the first signing of the summer, but it is not one of the ones you were hoping to hear about. So while we wait for more positive Arsenal transfer news on the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Sami Khedira and Angel Di Maria, let us see who we have [...]
5 Reasons why Sanchez would pick Arsenal over Liverpool by KJ The rumours today are that Barcelona officials are in London to negotiate the transfer of Suarez from Liverpool and Rodgers is asking for Alexis Sanchez to be included in the deal. However, it has also been reported that Sanchez doesn't want to join Liverpool [.
There is little doubt that signing Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid would be a great transfer move by Arsenal, and it seems that the Argentina international would be keen on a move to the Premier League as well. But just because the Gunners smashed the club transfer record last summer to bring Di Mari's [.
Oh well, Arsenal fans, this one was always going to be a long shot anyway. There were times in the last few weeks, however, when the Arsenal transfer rumours were giving us hope that the Gunners might be in with a chance of bringing Karim Benzema to the Premier League, but that hope now looks [...]
