Arsenal move closer to signing Brazilian international star in January

Every Arsenal fan knows that the club is in desperate need of a strong defensive midfielder urgently and even Arsene Wenger has admitted that he needs a buy some defensive reinforcements in January (much to our surprise!) Recently it was reported that the Gunners were preparing to make a £9.5m offer for Spartak Moscow’s Romulo, while also allowing YaYa Sanogo to go to Russia for a year on loan.

Today it has been reported that the former Spartak star Valery Rheingold that the Russian giants should not stand in Romulo’s way and allow him to move to the Emirates. Rheingold was quoted as saying in the Express: “In general Romulo is a useful player who gets through a lot of work.”

Sanchez is unhappy at Arsenal? Mikel Arteta disagrees!

I have just read one of the most ridiculous Anti-Arsenal articles of all time! According to a report in today’s Star, they report: “The £35m summer signing from Barcelona, according to Chilean newspaper La Tercera, has already fallen out with some of his team-mates, including the Gunners’ record signing Mesut Ozil.

It is a sensational claim from Sanchez’s homeland given that he has enjoyed a blistering start to life at the club following his move from the Nou Camp.

Despite Arsenal’s mixed beginning to the new season, the 25-year-old Chile star has netted an impressive eight goals in 15 appearances and received huge praise from manager Arsene Wenger for his performances.

Arsenal to miss out on Klopp as new manager?

I am not one of the many Arsenal fans that cannot wait for the club to replace Arsene Wenger as the man in charge. I have had my moans about the Frenchman but also feel that he has done a remarkable job in difficult circumstances for the last 10 years.

But even the fans that think Wenger fully deserved his new Arsenal contract after a good title challenge for most of last season and an FA cup trophy for us to celebrate, are already looking to the future knowing that it will be sooner rather than later that the club has to find the man to replace the Prof at the top.

Arsenal “desperate” to sign experienced international defender in January

There is doubt that Arsenal need some serious backup in defence in January, and Arsene Wenger has already admitted as much at the annual AGM as our usual lengthy injury list has decimated the squad.

We all know that Wenger is not keen on spending money in the winter transfer window so the news that Celtic’s 10 million-rated centre-back Van Dijk is one of our top targets, but we could also use a new right-back to provide in depth backup for the rest of the season.

Hummels transfer to leave BFG out of Arsenal line-up?

There is another development in the Arsenal transfer rumour linking us with a possible swoop for the Borussia Dortmund star defender Mats Hummels in the January transfer window. According to a report in the Daily Star, one of our main rivals for the signature of Hummels has dropped out of the race.

The paper claims that news from Russia suggests that the Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is now looking at Ezequiel Garay, the Argentina international centre back currently playing for Zenit St. Petersburg, as his top transfer target in January. This apparently leaves Arsenal in pole position to sign the Germany international.

Is Reid transfer really the answer for Arsenal?

There is one big thing that bothers me about one of the recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the one that suggests that Arsene Wenger is preparing a move for the West Ham and New Zealand international defender Winston Reid in the January transfer window.

My concern is why, if Wenger wants the player and the player does not seem keen to sign an extension to the current deal with the Hammers that is due to run out in the summer, did the Gunners not try to sign the centre back during the summer transfer window?

The man being lined up to replace Wenger at Arsenal?

Many Arsenal fans have been calling for years for the club to get rid of Arsene Wenger as the man in charge. And maybe if the Frenchman had failed to qualify for the Champions League one year or even if the players had not managed to overturn a 2-0 deficit to beat Hull City and win the FA cup in May, they might have got their wish.

Arsenal to sign another Barca striker in January?

For three seasons between the summer of 2011 and the summer of this year, the current Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez was playing alongside and competing with the Spain international Pedro Rodriguez at La Liga club Barcelona. And according to one of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, the same could soon be happening in north London.

Because according to a Metro report, the 27-year old Barca star has had enough and is ready to rejoin his former colleauge in the English Premier League with the Gunners. Maybe he has been encouraged to see just how well Alexis has settled into life at Arsenal and started to take the EPL by storm.

Is this Dutchman Arsenal’s new defender in January

Every Arsenal fan was left bamboozled this summer when Arsene Wenger allowed Thomas Vermaelen to leave (and Carl Jenkinson to go out on loan) but failed to bring in adequate replacements. The Frenchman admitted that he had made a mistake when he told fans at the annual AGM: ‘I agree we could have bought one more player but we didn’t find one.

‘But we will try in January to rectify that because we are a bit short because of the injuries we’ve had.’

Arsenal in SIX way Premier League transfer battle for German star?

One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours could see the Gunners embroiled in a transfer battle with five other Premier League clubs, according to a report in The Mirror. And that could definitely turn into an interesting fight.

The player involved, German international winger Karim Bellarabi, must be feeling quite good about himself after scouts from Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Man United, Tottenham and Newcastle all turned up to watch him play for Bayer Leverkusen against the Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League this week.

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.
