Even though the long suffering Arsenal fans were finally able to see Arsene Wenger spend a decent amount of the club's money in the transfer market this summer, with the signing of Mustafi, Xhaka and Lucas Perez taking the total layout close to the £100 million mark, the Arsenal coffers were left far from empty.
Of course I want Arsenal to win things, but not at any price. That is why I was never among the Arsenal fans who would have liked to see Jose Mourinho replace Arsene Wenger as the boss. He may well have been successful in his career but that 'win at all costs' mentality that has [...]
The Arsenal and Spain international star midfielder Santi Cazorla has been the subject of a growing anumber of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last few weeks, ever since the reports began about La Liga´s Atletico Madrid being set to sell their own attacking midfielder Arda Turan. The Turkish international had been strongly linked with a [.
No way Arsenal will sell Cazorla to Atletico by DN I know that Arsene Wenger still has to balance the books at Arsenal and so as long as the current ownership stays the same, the Frenchman is never going to have the sort of resources available to his main rivals like Mourinho, van Gaal and [...]
Arsene Wenger no longer has to sell one or more of the better players in the Arsenal squad every summer in order to balance the books. The finances are a lot healthier for the Frenchman now his continued feat of getting the Gunners into the Champions League has helped the club to pay off the [...]
This is not the first time that Arsenal fans have woken up and read the papers or checked the football websites to find the worrying news that another club is planning to try to pry away our sublime Spanish international midfielder Santi Cazorla in the transfer market. This time, according to a Metro report, it [.
There were quite a few Arsenal transfer rumours last summer that suggested that Arsene Wenger was one of the club managers that were hoping to add the Croatian international star Mario Mandzukic to his playing staff. We do not know for sure if that is true, but if so, the Frenchman should be very interested [.
Arsenal fans may have been feeling a bit nervous recently about Arsene Wenger´s ability to hold on to our Spain international star Santi Cazorla, with many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that the little magician could be tempted to head back to Spain and La Liga with strong interest from big clubs like Barcelona and Atletico [.
Santi Cazorla and Mesut Ozil are two of the Arsenal players that were most in need of a good rest during the international break and Arsene Wenger would have been hoping for them both to be fresh and raring to go for the crunch game with Liverpool. But Ozil played 90 minutes in both of [...]
The Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has long been linked with a move back to Spain, with Athletico Madrid said to be especially keen on his services according to various media outlets both in England and in Spain. However, the diminutive playmaker has now spoken out about his situation and has flatly denied any approach from [.
L'Arsenal vince 2 a 0 in Francia, nel ritorno degli ottavi di finale di Champions, ma non basta per rimontare il 3 a 1 patito a Londra.

Arsenal are hoping to take advantage of a fall out behind the scenes at Spain's current La Liga champions Atletico Madrid, by making a summer transfer swoop for their star striker Mario Mandzukic.

The January transfer window may have only just closed and the summer one is still months away, but we still expect lots of Arsenal transfer rumours every week. Some fans may not like them but I take them as a bit of fun and like to think ahead to how Arsene Wenger might improve the [...]
You have probably heard the worrying suggestion that the Arsenal and Spain international star midfielder Santi Cazorla is wanted back in La Liga by the current Spanish champions Atletico Madrid. But even though the little magician has recently turned 30-years old, I believe that he is in his prime and that Arsene Wenger must do [.
Newsflash! Arsenal need a defensive midfielder, or at the very least, a central midfielder to add cover and competition at the heart of the Gunners squad. But the million dollar question is whether Arsene Wenger really agrees, or which players he thinks will do the job. Wenger is famous for not being the biggest fan [.
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 [.
Considering that Arsenal are supposedly intending to invest hundreds of millions in the transfer market this summer, it is a little disconcerting to find that the talented Spaniard Santi Cazorla could be interested in listening to offers after the World Cup ends in Brazil.

This is the sort of Arsenal transfer rumour that many young Gooners drool over, but us oldies are a bit more circumspect and cynical, knowing that the chances of it coming off are minimal. But with Wenger's new spending power perhaps there is a chance that he may spend half his "100million warchest" on the [.
Why this season has shown that talent isn't everything unless you're a striker by KJ This season has been an odd one, Arsenal fans.

Real Madrid would probably be looking for a new central defender in the summer. Pepe and Sergio Ramos are first choice defenders and there’s no chance they would be leaving the club anytime soon.

Barcelona lost their away game (not a huge surprise given that most of the times they kill off teams in Camp Nou exclusively) to Sevilla 2-1. Neymar scored a penalty late in the game to save face for Barcelona but we all know that a consolation goal, is just that. A consolation goal. Messi is out injured for possibly two months and that means Barcelona will drop more points.
