There has already been reports of Arsenal turning down bids from Juventus and Fenerbahce for our two goalkeepers, Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina because Arsene Wenger’s valuations were far above the buying clubs.
If Arsenal get Lacazette, Arsenal fans should be happy…by Goonerboy
Arsenal appear to be closing in on Lacazette and In my opinion he is a good striker who will be a good addition to our team. Unsurprisingly for me, many Arsenal fans have began their devaluation campaign saying all sort of negative stuff about our potential signing…
Although there have been many rumours about Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain being given a much-improved contract extension by Arsenal, there is still no confirmation of the Ox being any closer to signing a new deal. This is making it much more likely that the 23 year-old will be allowed to go to join Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool rather than let him run down his contract next season. Wenger said that losing the Ox would be a ‘disaster’ for the club, but if he defers signing a new contract then Le Prof will have no choice but to let him go to our rivals.
It looks like Arsenal are finally getting close to landing the world class striker we have all been waiting for for many long years, with the news that Arsene Wenger and the Lyon president, Jean-Michel Aulas, have had meetings this week and are close to reaching an agreement on the transfer fee for Alexandre Lacazette.
Well it looks there could be some good Arsenal transfer rumours this morning with the news that the young Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru is in France and has managed to obtain a UK working visa and can now begin in earnest his discussions with Arsenal and other Premier League sides. The 20 year-old scored 24 goals in 41 appearances for Eupen last season despite playing on the wing and is considered to be a rising star in Belgium.
The conundrum that is Danny Welbeck by Precious Et Al
I do not know if he is on the Arsenal transfer wish list of Arsene Wenger this summer, but if he is not then he should be, because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of the hottest forwards in world football right now and even if Arsenal do somehow manage to persuade Alexis Sanchez to sign a new contract extension, the Gunners need more firepower if we are to stand any chance of reclaiming the Premier League title.
Central midfield, or the defensive side of it at least, has been a problem position for Arsenal for as long as some younger Gooners will remember. And for those of us lucky enough to0 have longer memories there is a feeling that the Gunners have still never found a good enough player to fill the considerable boots of the great Patrick Vieira.
