Why Arsenal need to move fast on Schneiderlin transfer

Arsenal need to win away to Liverpool later today in order to go level on points with Southampton after Ronald Koeman’s team cruised to a 3-0 win over Everton yesterday. THat ended a dreadful run for the Saints but hopefully Arsenal will still be able to overtake them before we meet at St. Mary’s on New Years Day.

And once we have beaten them on their own ground (hopefully) then I think that Arsene Wenger needs to bang in an offer for their France international midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. And I think it is important to try to get the transfer done early if possible for a couple of very good reasons.

Arsenal set for another raid on Barcelona?

Arsenal Linked with January Swoop of Yet Another Barcelona Forward! by AT

While Arsene Wenger’s first call of action in January will be to strengthen Arsenal’s defence, recent media reports are suggesting that the Frenchman is also planning to comprehensively strengthen the attack as well. According to reports from The Express, the Gunners’ boss is all set to make a surprise bid for the Barcelona forward, Pedro Rodriguez.

Arsenal to finalise deal for another top Liverpool target?

Maybe now that Arsenal have not been drawn to face the German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the knockout stage of the Champions League, for a change, then their manager Pep Guardiola will not mind selling us one of his players.

And by all accounts, the Switzerland international midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri is not really a part of the Spanish manager’s plans for the club’s future anyway. But I did not realise that he was even a possible transfer target for the Gunners either, until I saw the Metro report that claims not only is Arsene Wenger keen on signing Shaqiri, but that the Frenchman is close to completing the deal to bring him to the Emirates stadium in January.

Arsenal set for SHOCK transfer swoop on Man City?

The way things have gone for both clubs in the last 10 years or so, any transfer business between Arsenal and moneybags Man City would only have been one way. In fact the Gunners fans have had to see some of our best players heading north to pick up a nice fat pay packet and put on the sky blue shirt.

But according to one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, we could be about to see one of their players heading in the other direction and the fact that is is being reported by The Independent means that there could well be some truth in the rumour.

This German defender is Arsenal’s perfect target for January

Are Arsenal on the Verge of a Move for Yet Another German WC Star? by AT

Over the past month or so, there have been several media reports linking the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger with a move for Schalke’s Benedikt Howedes once the transfer window opens in January. With the Gunners struggling defensively, it seems as though Wenger has once again turned towards the Bundesliga to bolster his side’s credentials, this time in defence.

Who is the defender transfer set to fix Arsenal?

It is coming Arsenal fans, and I am not talking about Christmas day, Hannukah or the winter solstice for you pagans out there. The event that is on some of our minds is the January transfer window. Last season it was a disaster, with an injured Kim Kallstrom on loan when we needed so much more.

This season will hopefully be a lot better, not that it would be difficult, and with an even harder injury hit season than last time the manager must agree. We were in a lot better position at this time a year ago and the Frenchman has already accepted that the defensive side of the Arsenal squad needs strengthening.

This DOUBLE transfer spells TROUBLE for Wenger and Arsenal fans!

Everyone in the extended Arsenal family is looking forward to the January transfer window; some of us with eager anticipation and some with nervous trepidation. But we are all hoping that Arsene Wenger works his old magic in the transfer market and brings in a few key players that will help the Gunners finish the Premier League season strongly, enjoy an extended run in the Champions League, and retain the FA cup trophy we won last season.

Why Schalke defender’s transfer is PERFECT move for Arsenal

If this particular Arsenal transfer rumour, then I am one Gooner who is hoping that Arsene Wenger is serious and can complete the deal in the January transfer window, although that is not likely to be easy.

Benedikt Howedes is, in my opinion, the perfect transfer target for Arsenal. The 26-year old a very talented centre back, proven by him already earning 31 caps for the Germany national team, including playing every minute for the World Cup winners at the finals in Brazil this summer.

Is this Barca defender trying to force through Arsenal move in January?

There has been some interesting news today that the young Barcelona defender Martin Montoya is trying to force the Spanish giants to allow him to leave the Nou Camp in January, despite only having six months left on his contract.

The 23 year-old right-back was reported as being in talks with Wenger last summer with a view to moving to the Emirates for free when his contract ended, but the ex-Spanish youth international has only featured once for Barca this campaign and has made it clear through his agent that he doesn’t want to waste the rest of the season in the reserves.

Is this Moscow star REALLY the answer for Arsenal’s midfield?

I must admit that I had never heard of the subject of this one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute. But apparently the Brazilian defensive midfield star Romulo is the player that Arsene Wenger is set to bring to the Emirates to solve the central midfield problems that have been going on for so long.

The 24-year old is currently playing in Russia for Spartak Moscow, but according to a Metro report the talks about his imminent transfer to north London and the Premier League are well underway. In fact the report claims that Romulo could become an Arsenal player as soon as this weekend.

Happy Arsenal fans as Wenger declares January defender transfer!!

There was only one thing to worry about for Arsenal fans, well for me at least, as the Gunners cruised to a 4-1 victory over a good Newcastle United team fresh from a win over the Premier League leaders Chelsea. And it was not whether Arsene Wenger was so thankful to the Magpies for stopping Jose Mourinho emulating the invincibles season.

With an Arsenal squad and particularly our back four that was ravaged with injury problems, the makeshift defence with Debuchy alongside Mertesacker and Bellerin at right back, put in a really solid showing. The young Spaniard and the Frenchman were particularly good, Gibbs carried on his recent excellent form and our BFG suggested once more that he is world class as long as he is comfortable with the players around him.

The midfielder that Arsenal NEED this January

I want Real Madrid to sign Lucas Silva, not Arsenal by KJ

There has been reports in Marca today that Arsenal have agreed a £12million fee with Cruizero for the transfer of defensive midfielder Lucas Silva. However, there is also reported interest from Real Madrid and it seems it will be very difficult to persuade the Brazilian to join Arsenal with the biggest team in the world wanting his signature. But I personally don’t mind and I actually want Madrid to get Silva. Why? Two words… Asier Illarramendi.
