Time for Arsenal to move it or lose it on Reus transfer

Arsene Wenger may not have much more time to make up his mind about this particular transfer target. Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund has been linked with us for a long while and continues to be the subject of many Arsenal transfer rumours.

But the talented and exciting Germany international will not come cheap and may not even come at all. THere is a buy out clause in his contract, believed to be more than £30 million according to a Talksport report. But any potential suitor would have to persuade him that the transfer was right for him as Dortmund are not keen to sell their star and his current deal lasts until 2017.

Arsenal set to poach TOP defender from Chelsea?

This should be music to the ears of Arsenal fans everywhere, because ever since the Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich started pumping money into Chelsea, the Blues have regularly been able to beat the Gunners to any transfer targets that both clubs want, as well as being able to poach the likes of Ashley Cole with the offer of a massive hike in salary.

So to see the Metro report which reveals that Chelsea are set to miss out on one of their main transfer targets because the player has set his heart on playing for Arsenal, has got to be good news. The player in question is the Germany international centre back Antonio Rudiger.

Agent confirms Arsenal in talks for Croatian star

Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is going to fortify Arsenal’s defensive capabilities in January and according to Marcelo Brozović’s agent, the young Dinamo Zagreb midfielder will be holding talks with the Gunners next month.

Brozovic may not be a household name but he is now a regular in the Croatian national side alongside Real Madrid’s Luka Modric and Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic, and at just 21 years of age, certainly has the potential to become one of his country’s greats. He has been a part of Croatia’s’s international setup from the U18 upwards and is certainly expected to move onto a bigger and better club than Zagreb in the near future.

Arsenal linked with £36m wantaway Argentina star

Although January seems a long way away, there are still many Arsenal transfer rumours flying around. Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he intends to strengthen the defence in the upcoming transfer window, but the Daily Star reckons that Arsenal are intending to bid for the Benfica and Argentina star midfielder Nicolas Gaitan, who has a £36m buyout clause in his present contract.

Arsenal need to move fast if they are serious about German’s signature

Arsenal’s long-term target Marco Reus is attracting the interest of Bayern Munich at present, and will have to move quickly or risk losing out. Munich’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge today told the press that they are seriously contemplating another attempt to raid their main Bundesliga rival, this time for Dortmund born winger Marco Reus.

Bayern have signed Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski from their German counter-parts in recent seasons, and has angered their rivals with the way they do business. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s recent comments will not have helped their relationship in the slightest.

Roma defender reveals Arsenal DID try to sign him this summer!

There have been a lot of doubts from Arsenal fans and members of the football media about why Arsene Wenger did not strengthen the Arsenal defence more in the summer transfer window. And for those of us that are not entirely convinced by Arsene Wenger’s vague words about not being able to find the right player available, there is today some evidence that he did at least try.

According to a Sky Sports report, the Greece international defender that we were linked with in various Arsenal transfer rumours over the summer, Kostas Manolas, has revealed that he did have the choice of Arsenal and the Italian champions Juventus.

Khedira transfer blow could be GOOD news for Arsenal

Arsenal were handed an unequivocal `forget it` by the Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti on our hopes of completing the transfer of the Germany international Sami Khedira in the January transfer window. It was thought that the powerful central midfielder was the top transfer of Arsene Wenger but according to a report in the Evening Standard the move is not going to happen.

Not in January anyway, after Ancelotti issued a statement yesterday declaring his intention to continue trying to persuade the 27-year old to renew his contract and stay in La Liga. And Ancelotti also stated that if Khedira did not agree to stay in Madrid, he would not be leaving before next summer.

The 3 reasons Arsenal WILL sign Khedira in January

With Arsenal once again showing our soft underbelly with a tame performance and a disappointing draw with Hull City at the Emirates yesterday, the need for more power and fight in the squad has become more urgent than ever. And according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger is finally ready to act and bring in Sami Khedira in the January transfer window.

Will Virgil transfer be F.A.B for Arsenal?

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 then, with our France international right back Mathieu Debuchy supposed to be fit again around the end of the year, but the current problems have shown that we are very vulnerable to injury.

Khedira to Arsenal transfer at risk from Chelsea AND Juventus

Can the world stop picking on Arsenal for a while. Not for long, I am not greedy, but it would be nice if we didn’t have to without almost a complete first team of players through injury for the rest of the season. And it would be nice if Arsene Wenger could complete his transfer business in January without some of the richest and most extravagant clubs in the world getting involved.

Does Wenger mean Hummels as this January Arsenal transfer?

The Annual General Meeting of Arsenal Football Club was today and as usual there were lots of questions raised about the club’s financial dealings, especially the spending on transfers by Arsene Wenger. Even though the Frenchman spent more than ever in the summer transfer window, a year after smashing the club’s transfer record to sign Mesut Ozil, there is still a feeling that we could and should have done more.

Why Arsenal will LOSE if Chelsea go for Khedira transfer!!

It was only a few weeks ago that Arsenal fans were hearing some good news on Sami Khedira in various Arsenal transfer rumours around the media. The gist of it was that the Gunners had agreed personal terms with the Germany international and just needed to wrap up the deal with his current club Real Madrid, who know that January is their last chance to get something before the midfielder leaves on a free transfer next summer. All good then.
