Arsenal DO NOT need this new DM

Why This Portuguese Star is NOT the DM Arsenal Require! by AT

Well, it is no secret that Arsenal are in desperate need of a defensive midfielder. Let’s face it, Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta are both past their prime and are simply not good enough. In regards to the issue, the Daily Mirror is reporting that the Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger is contemplating a £25million move for the AS Monaco enforcer Joao Moutinho when the transfer window opens in January.

MASSIVE Arsenal boost as midfield target puts in transfer request

Arsenal may have already sorted out one of the bits of transfer business that will be done when the January transfer window opens in a little over a month. We won’t know until then of course, but one of the players linked with a move to the Emirates to strengthen the central midfield area has now handed in a transfer request at his current club and so is very likely to be moving on in January, according to the Daily Express.

Could Vermaelen be set for a shock return to Arsenal?

Arsenal’s decision to sell Thomas Vermaelen and Bacary Sagna during the summer transfer window led many fans to believe that Arsene Wenger would be focusing on defensive reinforcements to cure a long-term problem. Although Calum Chambers has shown maturity beyond his tender years following his arrival from Southampton, old problems have reared their ugly head yet again at the Emirates.

Arsenal told BIGGER bid needed for midfield star’s January transfer

That January transfer window, and the chance it offers Arsenal to redress the problems in the squad that have seen us fail to win the Champions League qualifying group, once again, and to sit languishing down in 8th place in the Premier League, with just four wins from 12 games so far.

So there will be a lot of work going on behind the scenes, even though the official action cannot begin until the window actually opens on the 1st of January. And a lot of that work at Arsenal will involve identifying and preparing bids for the right player to add steel to the centre of the Gunners midfield.

Arsenal get boost in Marco Reus chase and Podolski still wants out

There is a never-ending supply of Arsenal transfer rumours linking the Gunners with Borussia Dortmund’s Marcus Reus, despite the amount of quality midfielders already in Arsene Wenger’s squad. Reus has a contract with Dortmund until 2017, but a release clause of just 25 million euros means that there will be interest from most top Premier League clubs.

Wenger is reportedly a long term admirer of the 25 year-old and todays news that Chelsea will definitely not be standing in the way of any potential bid for the German international wll be welcomed by Arsenal fans. Jose Mourinho made it clear esterday when he said: “We don’t want Marco Reus, that market is closed to us and the player belongs to Borussia Dortmund,”

Arsenal lining up bargain defender in January?

Is This Swiss Defender the Solution for Arsenal’s Defensive Problems?

If reports from the Daily Star are to be believed, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to make a move for the FC Basel defender Fabian Schar once the transfer window reopens in January. The Swiss international is said to be priced at around £10millon but with his contract at the club set to expire this summer, a cut-price deal is very much possible.

The Arsenal Board should be talking to Jurgen Klopp NOW

Arsenal must act quickly or lose Jurgen Klopp by KM

While Arsenal sit managerless as Arsene Wenger is a deluded old man and everything but a decent football manager, a certain Jurgen Klopp hass issued his desire to come to the Premier league. While we all know Wenger is incapable of even thinking of change, since he believes blindly in a way of football that just doesn’t work I ask if at least the board is thinking rationally.

Is it time for Thierry Henry to return to Arsenal?

Arsenal’s legendary striker Thierry Henry is getting ready to play the last game of his contract with New York Red Bulls today, and he is keeping very quiet about his next career move. There is every chance that he may continue his playing career (maybe in India with some other old Arsenal team-mates?) but surely at 37 years of age he may certainly be considering a bash at management.

He still retains his talent in front of goal but his global experiences should have given him a good basis for being a successful coach, especially with his inside knowledge of how Wenger does his job, so should Arsenal bring him to the Emirates as a boost for the younger players (for now!)?

Arsenal Rumours 23rd Nov – Moutinho, Cech, Mings and Schneiderlin

There are now just six weeks to go until the Janary transfer window, so we can expect thousands of Arsenal transfer rumours in the meantime, especially as we all KNOW that the Gunners desperately need reinforcements!

The DM area is an absolte must in January, but with the likelihood of Sami Khedira arriving, the Daily Mail seems to be convinced that Arsenal will now try to entice Monaco’s 30million-rated Joao Moutinho in his place. I am personally not convinced that the Portugese international has the physique to do well in the Premier League, but what do I know?

How Barcelona will HELP Arsenal solve DM problem in January

I am not sure if you have heard this one before Gooners, but some people think that Arsenal could do with signing a world class central midfielder, a player with defensive discipline, high work rate and the power to battle Premier League opponents. Oh I don’t know, maybe someone like Patrick Vieira perhaps. I seem to remember the Gunners doing quite well when he played for us.

Why Modric injury could HELP Arsenal complete January transfer

It looked like bad news for Arsenal when the reports came in this week that the Real Madrid and Croatia international midfielder Luka Modric had picked up an injury while on international duty. But now it seems as though it could actually help Arsenal to complete the transfer to solve the long running defensive midfield issue at the club.

At first look, the Modric injury that will keep him on the sidelines seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of our chances of signing Sami Khedira in the January transfer window, because it opened up the opportunity for the German to play regularly, while Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti would be reluctant to let him leave.

Is Arsenal the EPL side that PSG star is set to join in January?

The priority for Arsenal in the January transfer window is likely to be for a central defender, as the recent injury problems of Laurent Koscielny have highlighted just how thin the Arsenal squad is in the defensive area. But many Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger finally accepts that he needs to sign a combative central midfielder to strengthen the spine of the team as well.
