This is the one transfer deal that every Arsenal fan is hoping will happen this summer. If Arsene Wenger does get his man and last season’s PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez comes to north London then I reckon all the transfer window woes of the past will be forgotten, for a while at least.
The only thing I would like to see more than Arsenal lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the up and coming season (well maybe not the only thing but let’s stick to football) would be for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United to flop like a souffle taken out of the oven too soon.
Big Pre-Season for Gnabry!
Serge Gnabry made his debut for Arsenal in 2012 and it seems like despite being in the squad for four years now, Gnabry has made very little progress towards becoming a first team regular. Having featured in the opening game against Lens and looking relatively impressive for the first game back, Arsenal fans will hope to expect bigger things from Gnabry this year!
Football is a matter of opinions in some ways, even though it is on paper a simple game that is about getting a round bag full of wind into an oversized net, and this is highlighted perfectly by the very different sections of Arsenal fans that have become known as the WOB and the AKBs.
Arsenal have returned to Inter Milan to enquire about the possible capture of Marcelo Brozovic this summer. The Croatian international enjoyed an impressive European Championships alongside Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic, although the Arsenal chief has long been in the know when it comes to his potential and talent.
Arsenal are in talks to sign an unknown striker according to Emanuele Giulianelli, but will turn to Alexandre Lacazette should talks fail to prove fruitful.
The journalist was the first to reveal the deal which would send Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach to North-London this summer, and he has now claimed that there is a deal in place to sign Alexandre Lacazette, despite the club holding preference in another signature.
Injury update in Arsenal’s pre-season!
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already had to give his first injury update of the new season and we’ve only had one pre-season game. The Gunners didn’t sustain any injuries as a result of the first pre-season match against Lens, however there were a few first team regulars who were absent due to either injury or an extended holiday.
