Although there were a few Arsenal transfer rumours this season suggesting that our brilliant young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin could have his head turned by the transfer interest in him from his boyhood club Barcelona, where he spent the first eight years of his youth career in their famous academy at La Masia.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has managed more matches at Arsenal than the combined total of games his Premier League rivals managed at their current clubs. Another feather in the already brimming cap of Wenger! The departure (or more appropriately ‘sacked') Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson brought Wenger this new acclaim.

In long-drawn transfer story, Arsenal have agreed to sell striker Lukas Podolski to Galatasaray. In a report by the ever-reliable BILD,the German will join the Turkish champions for €4 millionon a three-year deal.
Arsenal fans have become well used to the many faces of Jose Mourinho over the last 10 years or so. Even once the Portuguese manager had finished his first spell and moved to Inter Milan and Real Madrid, I could not help but hear with disbelief and disapproval about some of the things he said [...]
Arsenal have been linked with this striker for a long time, almost ever since he first came to the Premier League three years ago from the Belgian club Genk. And once Christian Benteke had revealed that he was a big fan of Arsenal and that he hoped to use his time at Aston Villa to [...]
If you ever get a chance to play poker with the Arsenal manager, make sure that you have got plenty of cash and can afford to lose it. Or that is what you would expect from Arsene Wenger after what his old adversary Sir Alex Ferguson said about the prof when the transfer of Robin [...]
Our newest signing the great Petr Cech has been filling the papers with his first interviews for the Gunners, and he seems very confident that Arsenal can go on to great things if they continue their form from the end of last season. But Petr believes that the Gunners slow start was the only reason [.
There was one good thing to come out of the Copa America match for Arsenal fans last night, and that was that our Player of the Year Alexis Sanchez did not pick up an injury. He and his Chilean international team Eduardo Vargas edged out Peru and will now play the final against Argentina or [...]
The last couple of years have been the best for a long time for Arsenal and the fans, financially speaking as well as on the pitch. Not only has Arsene Wenger finally had some decent money to spend in the transfer market following the Emirates stadium debt being paid off, but our big spending rivals [.
Why Petr Cech signing may be Arsenal's first step towards the title - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
When criticising Arsene Wenger's transfer policies over the past decade, one really does not know where to start. Even though Arsenal were debt-ridden up until recently owing to the building of the Emirates Stadium, the manager's extreme parsimony at times, coupled with his decisions to let his star players go, have left a large portion of the fans frustrated.
Most Arsenal fans are agreed on the idea that Arsene Wenger should have a top quality striker on his transfer wish list for this summer window, but your guess is as good as mine as to whether the Frenchman agrees. The boss has certainly not made any moves for Arsenal in that direction yet. Despite [.
Thank God that Arsenal have finally confirmed the acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea OFFICIALLY. We know we are all used to waiting for weeks on end for Arsenal.com to confirm any transfers that we have all known about for ages, but it became reality today! Arsène Wenger said on the official Arsenal website: "Petr [.
Gonzalo Higuain eager for Liverpool move; will Reds sign him? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain is very interested in a move to the Premier League, according to a report by Italy's Sports Mediaset (scroll down to 10:38 AM) today. The Napoli man has been targeted by nearly every top English club including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, but according to the story, it is a move to Anfield that excites him the most.
On the face of it, you could say that it should not really matter if Arsenal and Arsene Wenger cannot end the run of games against the Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho without a victory. That run stretches over the Portuguese manager´s two spells at Stamford Bridge and although it is annoying, the two league games [.
The Arsenal transfer rumours this week have been moving us further and further away from the hope of securing the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, to the extent that the papers today had all but signed the Frenchman for our Premier League rivals Manchester United and moved Arsene Wenger on to the pursuit of [.
It was only just over a year ago that Arsenal signed up the France international defender Laurent Koscielny to a new long term contract, so in theory we should not have to worry too much about the Gunners losing our brilliant centre back. But with some recent Arsenal transfer rumours linking Real Madrid with Koscielny, [.
Look Arsenal fans, I am hoping that the transfer capture of Petr Cech from Chelsea, which will hopefully be announced on the Arsenal website this week, will not only make the Gunners into real Premier League title contenders straight away, but will help our Poland international Wojciech Szczesny to finally realise the awesome potential that [.
Arsene Wenger may already have completed the first Arsenal signing of the summer, although not many Arsenal fans had heard of the young Romanian prospect Vlad Dragomir until the football media told us that he had signed for the Gunners earlier this week. But even if the news about the Chelsea keeper Petr Cech having [.
There were various Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with a possible transfer capture of the Juventus and Chile international star Arturo Vidal during this summer transfer window before he set off with the Gunners' and the PFA fans' player of the season Alexis Sanchez for the Copa America tournament.
There is one last bit of anxious waiting for Arsenal fans today, but as long as the medical team at the club do not find that the Czech Republic keeper has some never before realised problem that stops him getting the all clear, then Petr Cech will soon be confirmed as an Arsenal player, joining [...
This was definitely the most drawn out Arsenal transfer deal I have ever known, although I can imagine Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho shouting at each other over the conference table while discussing the price. I reckon that it only ended up at 10.9 million GBP because they flipped a coin for the final 100,000!
Things are not looking good for Arsenal, on the striker front at least, as this week has already seen the Arsenal fans´ hopes of completing the signing of two reported transfer targets dashed. But after Jackson Martinez was reported to be joining La Liga club Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund declared that they would not [.
I know that Aaron Ramsey has been excellent for Arsenal at times, and I have also seen him in a terrible run of form at other times, (and he also spends his fair share of time in the treatment room) so I am of the opinion that he needs to build up his consistency first [...]
I really hope it is Arsenal, but there could be a few clubs involved in these transfer talks with Southampton, with at least two Premier League rivals having been linked fairly heavily with the France international star Morgan Schneiderlin this summer. But as reported by The Mirror and revealed by Schneiderlin himself, we could soon [.
Here are three relatively young players that AW rates highly...
Joel Campbell had an outstanding WC2014 and then had some decent appearances but he was never really outstanding when playing for us or when going out on loan. Clearly, he is a talented player and he is highly viewed by many. The question is what shall we do with him?
There have been various players that Arsene Wenger has turned to in an attempt to fill the very large gap left in the Arsenal side when our midfield star and captain Patrick Vieira left the club for Serie A and Juventus after scoring the penalty that handed the Gunners the last trophy that we were [.
He may have started only nine Premier League games last season, but I have a feeling that Arsenal are about to see the best of the England international Jack Wilshere. To do that, however, the club and Arsene Wenger will need to keep hold of the injury plagued midfielder and that may not be [...]
It is my belief that we should be looking to retain the services of one Corporal Carl Jenkinson at THOF for the immediate future and I will state my case as to why.
What would be the reasons to let him go? Firstly some would argue he is not good enough. Others would say that we are well covered in his position and that there is no place for him when we have Bellerin, Debuchy and Chambers who can all play there.
There has been quite a lot said about the former Arsenal star Dennis Bergkamp in recent days, because the weekend marked the 20th anniversary of our incredibly talented Dutch master signing for the Gunners. The praise for the forward has been fulsome, with another former star Paul Merson going as far as telling Sky Sports [.
Arsene Wenger has developed a reputation of only signing players at the last minute to try and get the price reduced, but according to the Arsenal CEO, Ivan Gazidis, they do usually try to get the signings done early if possible. Look at Alexis Sanchez last summer, who was signed as soon as the World [.
The thing to remember about Arsenal transfer rumours is that crucial third word, rumours. Even the most confident sounding media report, and there are plenty about the Gunners signing Petr Cech from Chelsea at the minute, means very little until the deal is confirmed on the Arsenal website. But I still assume that some of [.
I don´t know why I am surprised really, because we Arsenal fans should be used to disappointment in the summer and winter transfer markets. And to be honest I do not expect Arsene Wenger to continue this way. I am sure the Frenchman has plans and knows what he wants to do, but it is [...]
Although Arsene Wenger has taken a lot of the flak from Arsenal fans and the football media alike over the last decade, a lot of us can appreciate that the Frenchman was working with one hand tied behind his back. We are all fairly optimistic these days going in to a transfer window but up [...]
Remembering one of Arsenal's best ever playeers, Dennis Bergkamp by TRJ There have been a few articles today commemorating the 20th anniversary of DB10's arrival at Arsenal. I remember clearly being in denial that this was some kind of cruel prank...it wasn't just Dennis but it was the Double D Dennis and David [.
