How will Arteta contract affect Arsenal stars and transfers?

If I was the Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini, I would be a bit worried right about now. Everything seems to be going against the tough tackling Frenchman, at least as far as his continued career as an Arsenal player goes anyway.

It is bad enough for Flamini that the football media constantly report Arsenal transfer rumours linking the club with various central or defensive midfielders, such as Morgan Schneiderlin, Sami Khedira, William Carvalho, Moussa Sissoko and the German Bender twins Sven and Lars.

Arsenal to make MORE defender transfers this week?

While the Arsenal fans still await official confirmation from the club that the transfer deal to sign the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal in La Liga is complete, many of us have been wondering whether that will be the end of our transfer business for this January transfer window.

Well according to a Metro report, not by a long chalk. The report claims that Arsene Wenger is actually looking to complete two more transfers before the window closes on Monday and even more surprising is that both of them are defenders.

Sissoko still prefers Arsenal move rather than PSG

The Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been strongly linked with a big money move to Arsenal or Paris St Germain this month, and even issued a come-and-get-me plea to Arsene Wenger when he announced that Arsenal were the “club of his heart” earlier in January.

Now the French international has spoken to Mercato Foot about the ongoing rumours, and he has clearly stated that he would prefer not to go back to France to continue his career, but wants to play for one of the “biggest clubs in England”.

Are Arsenal closing in on our PERFECT DM signing?

Although Arsene Wenger has already made two new signings to boost the Arsenal squad during the January transfer window, there could still be more to come. For one thing, the Frenchman always seems to have something planned for transfer deadline day and for another, the young Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik is just 17-years old and was not expected to come straight in to help the team out this season.

Arsenal move on to next target as Paulista gains work permit

The winter transfer window is now entering its final week and surprisingly Arsenal have already completed one deal with the news that the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista has been granted a work permit allowing him to join the Gunners at last.

But it seems that Wenger has not finished his business and has now turned his attention to the versatile Borussia Dortmund defender Kevin Grosskreutz. The previously successful Bundesliga side are currently languishing near the bottom of the League and their star players are becoming frustrated and are looking for ways out of the club.

WTF are Arsenal playing at with Campbell?

I am still in shock that Arsene Wenger has allowed Joel Campbell to leave Arsenal for the Spanish La Liga club Villarreal. If the ESPN report is right, we paid the release clause for Paulista so we did not have to include Campbell in the deal. It is only on loan until the end of the season apparently, but what if we need another striker in between now and then?

The Gunners have already let two strikers go this month, with Lukas Podolski going to Serie A with Inter Milan and Yaya Sanogo staying in the Premier League with Crystal Palace. That leaves us with Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Look away Arsenal fans! Di Maria joins AMAZING list of nearly men!

As Arsenal close in on the transfer of the uncapped Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from La Liga club Villarreal, Arsene Wenger knows that he will have to go to a tribunal hearing to ask for a work permit for the 24-year old to be able to play in the English Premier League and that has brought up a sore subject.

Arsenal set to snap up ANOTHER La Liga star?

If I was the Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta or his central midfield team mate Mathieu Flamini, I would be getting a bit worried right now. Because their future Arsenal careers are starting to look a little bit dicey, to say the least, and the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are not making things any better for the pair, with a Metro report claiming that the Real Madrid and Spain international star Asier Illarramendi could be joining the Gunners at the end of this season.

Will Arsenal haggling allow Man United to hijack Paulista transfer?

First of all I should say that I still expect Arsenal to complete the transfer of the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista from La Liga, even though the latest reports suggest that we have yet to come to an agreement with his current club Villarreal on the transfer fee.

I very much doubt that Arsene Wenger would have been so forthcoming about the ongoing transfer talks if he was not extremely confident of sealing the deal for the talented 24-year old. However, there is apparently a new complication to go with the cost and the work permit issue, according to a Daily Star report.

Wenger CONFIRMS transfer plans! Paulista a DONE DEAL?

It is not like Arsene Wenger to tell the football media anything at all about his Arsenal transfer plans. All the Frenchman usually says is something along the lines of, we are working hard, it is difficult and there is no point signing any players just for the sake of it.

And it is January as well, the transfer window that the boss likes about as much as an ince cube down the back of his jumper on a wintery British day. So when I heard the Frenchman being so forthcoming about the transfer talks that are going on between the Gunners and Villareal about the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista, I instantly assumed that the deal is all but done.

Why would Arsenal sell Monreal to pay for Paulista?

There is a very strange Arsenal transfer rumour going around today that the Gunners are preparing to sell Nacho Monreal back to a Spanish club to balance the books after buying Gabriel Paulista from Villarreal.

The Express reckons that Monreal, who has been very helpful at times this season during our defensive crises is NOT considered to be “a long-term defensive solution at the Emirates”, due to him only being 5ft 10in.

La Liga boss CONFIRMS defender’s likely transfer to Arsenal

After being the subject of some Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks, the Brazilian defender Gabriel Paulista, who is currently starring for La Liga club Villareal, spoke out to welcome the interest from the Gunners. The 24-year old said that the whole thing was being handled by his agent, but he made no secret of wanting the transfer to happen, as a report in The Telegraph reveals.

Paulista said, “If I go to Arsenal it will be excellent. But if it’s not finalised then I am relaxed. I am focused on my work here.
