Although the Arsenal boss was spotted on the beach in Brazil the other day enjoying a spot of head tennis and keepy-uppy, I think that his favourite hobbies could involve chinese water torture and watching grass grow, because the Frenchman seems to have limitless patience in the transfer market and seems to love making the [.
£20 million is certainly within the transfer budget of Arsenal this summer and, although it would be the second highest fee that Arsene Wenger had ever paid, it would seem pretty cheap for a top class striker like Alexis Sanchez. But, according to a report in The Mirror, that is the price we are looking [.
Chelsea star Juan Mata is reportedly a transfer target for Barcelona but Jose Mourinho may block any move because of his ongoing feud with the Catalan club. Mourinho and Barca enjoyed a less than friendly rivalry during his time as Real Madrid manager and even during his first stint at Stamford Bridge.
As two former Arsenal players sat on the bench and watched, Barcelona were torn to shreds by Bayern Munich last night. Despite struggling to create anything and Alexis Sanchez wasting the one good chance he had, David Villa also sat on the bench until there were less than 10 minutes to play. The Spanish international striker is surely sick of seeing Pedro and Alexis start in front of him and could be open to a transfer to Arsenal in the summer.
Arsene Wenger was frustrated in his attempts to persuade Barcelona to release the Spanish international striker David Villa in January. The 31-year old was seen as the ideal player to add some venom to the Arsenal attack, but the Spanish club refused to sanction the deal, despite the fact they were hardly playing him and that Villa had told them he wanted to go.

Arsenal were linked with David Villa weeks ago, and may even have had a bid turned down by Barcelona. The Spanish giants have declared that Villa is a vital member of the squad and they need him for the rest of the season, but something is not right. Stories hit the papers that the 31-year old striker was pushing for the transfer to Arsenal, because what the club was saying was not reflected in the reality of his situation.
Arsenal have spoken to Barcelona and tried to persuade them to sell David Villa this January, and the Spanish international is keen on the move, but the Barcelona president has squashed the transfer and told the media so in no uncertain terms. Sandro Rosell has made his mind up and told the Catalan radio station RAC.

It seems a little bit unfair to me. After all, Arsenal have only got Olivier Giroud as a realistic first choice central striker, while Liverpool have two of this Premier League season's top scorers already in Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. So it strikes me as annoying and greedy that the Anfield mob are planning [.
If reports from the Spanish media are to be believed, Arsenal are in 'advanced talks' with the representatives of Barcelona forward Pedro Rodriguez ahead of a potential move in January.

Malaga won on the road, Sevilla edged Getafe, and Mallorca defeated Espanyol in the Spanish
Primera Division (La Liga) on August 18, 2012.
Celta Vigo 0-1 Malaga
Malaga started the season with a victory thanks to a late second half Fabrice Olinga goal.
Malaga finished fourth last season and will be looking to challenge for third which would avoid
qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.
Aged 16 years and 98 days, MÃ¡laga forward Fabrice Olinga became the youngest scorer in Liga
history as his late goal earned the Champions League play-off contenders a 1-0 victory at promoted
RCelta de Vigo.
The second-half substitute made an immediate impact, first hitting the woodwork with a stinging
effort and then bundling the ball in off his thigh for an 84th-minute winner, thereby eclipsing
Iker Muniain's 2009 record by 191 days.
New York is getting another big summer game, and this one will have a bit of South American
