Sol Campbell hasclaimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will revert back to his favoured four at the back, with a solid addition or two. The Gunners recently reverted to the newly fashionable 3-4-2-1 formation, currently sported by Chelsea and Spurs who occupy the top two spots in the division, as well as being tried out [.
Arsenal are being linked with a move to sign Virgil Van Dijk from Southampton this summer. The centre-back is on Chelsea's radar after a thoroughly impressive time with the Saints, and is believed to be viewed as the idealtype of defender for playing with three at the back. The Gunners appear to be appear to [.
There have been thousands of calls from Arsenal fans to secure a top holding midfielder and a marquee style super-striker this summer, but after the interest in Benedikt Howedes it seems probable that Wenger is also looking for a top class centre-back. If so, then surely he should be looking at a player described as [.
No Gooner believes EVERY Arsenal transfer rumour that appears in the papers so it is welcome when someone connected to the selling club tells us that the Gunners really are interested in one of our rumoured targets. I just wish it was a much stronger player, but then who knows how anyone will perform until [.
Arsenal fans are used to seeing the club linked with lots of different players in different positions, especially in the run up to and during a transfer window. But Arsene Wenger;s words this week suggested that all these Arsenal transfer rumours are not just guesswork, at least not all of them. As our Just Arsenal [.
Arsenal have been linked with the Celtic defender Virgil Van Dijk since the end of the summer transfer window and it looked odds on that he would be moving to the Emirates in January, but it seems that Arsene Wenger is playing it cool so far. It has been rumoured that Celtic are holding out [...]
Last summer it was variously reported that Arsenal had made a last-minute bid to sign Celtic's talented Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk only to be rejected by the Scottish Champions because they had no time to bring in an adequate replacement. I must admit I was of the opinion that the Gunners would be going [.
There have already been many centre backs linked with a potential move to the Emirates in the January transfer window. One of the players that seems to be one of the favourites, at least according to a growing number of Arsenal transfer rumours, is the young Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk. But the Celtic star's [.
I really hope that Arsene Wenger's comments the other day about how hard it was to find good quality players available in the January transfer window, at the same time as praising the Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal on his ability to cover at the centre of defence does not mean that us fans are [...]
I must admit to being a wee bit miffed when I saw that Arsenal Football Club, with all the mega millions sitting in the bank, and after the likes of Stan Kroenke and Ivan Gazidis keep suggesting that they are ambitious and ready to back the manager in the transfer market. It seems that the [...]
There may still be 7 weeks until the transfer window opens, but after Arsene Wenger admitted that Arsenal needed another defender in January the transfer rumours are usually about (possibly) available centre-backs. The latest one to be linked is Man United's Chris Smalling according to the Mirror. They claim that now Adrien Rabiot has signed [.
There is doubt that Arsenal need some serious backup in defence in January, and Arsene Wenger has already admitted as much at the annual AGM as our usual lengthy injury list has decimated the squad. We all know that Wenger is not keen on spending money in the winter transfer window so the news that [.
Every Arsenal fan was left bamboozled this summer when Arsene Wenger allowed Thomas Vermaelen to leave (and Carl Jenkinson to go out on loan) but failed to bring in adequate replacements. The Frenchman admitted that he had made a mistake when he told fans at the annual AGM: ‘I agree we could have bought one [.
It was good for Arsenal fans to hear Arsene Wenger state this week that he knew that the Gunners are short on the defensive side of the squad and declare that he expects to be able to solve the situation in the January transfer window. Hopefully the defensive crisis will not be as bad by [...]
If the Arsenal transfer rumours of this week are to be trusted, the Gunners were beaten to one of our main defensive transfer targets by the Italian Serie A club Roma. The player in question was the Greece international centre back Kostas Manolas and then we were linked with his international colleague Sokratis.
Arsene Wenger has painted himself into the corner with the Arsenal fans in the build up to the January transfer window. The manager has already spoken a few times this season about the nedd to strengthen the Arsenal squad, especially in the area of defence, so there is no way that the Frenchman will get [.
