For any Arsenal fans that do not keep up to speed on the goings on in Spain’s La Liga, you may not have heard of the Celta Vigo and Spain international forward Nolito, real name Manuel Agudo Duran. If so I would advise you to have a look at him over the next couple of weeks because the absence of Chelsea’s thuggish striker Diego Costa from the squad should see him start for Spain. And according to a report in The Mirror, Arsenal are weighing up a transfer move for him.
I have often wondered what goes on behind closed doors during the winter and summer transfer windows ( not much it seems of you are an Arsenal fan) as it seems to be a strange system. Arsene Wenger is always saying things like he is working around the clock trying to find and sign the players that he feels would improve the Gunners.
Hmm, I wonder of the recent comments made by the agent of Mesut Ozil were intended to get the attention of Arsenal Football Club. The Arsenal and Germany play maker still has a long time to run on his current deal with the club and there will still be a full two years left at the end of this season.
Well I didn’t start it, but there are lots of Arsenal rumours around saying that Barcelona have drawn up a short list of players, including Theo Walcott, that they want to replace the injured Brazilian Rafinha. The 22 year-old Brazilian midfielder has injured his cruciate ligament and is expected to be missing for the next six months (If he was an Arsenal player we’d be guessing more like a year!) Or, alternatively, they want him as a replacement for Pedro, who just moved to Chelsea.
There is a long way to go and a lot of football to be played before we start to look seriously at what Arsenal and Arsene Wenger might do in the January transfer window. Bugger all would be my guess, but an injury or two as well as the form of our current Gunners could all have a big effect on the Frenchman´s thought process.
LOL It didn’t take too long for the media to start the January Arsenal transfer rumours as at the start of yesterday the Guardian are saying that Arsene Wenger made a last minute offer to buy the Juventus striker Simone Zaza, despite the 24 year-old only moving to the Old Lady earlier in this transfer window, and are now preparing to go back for another bid in January.
It will come as no surprise to Arsenal fans to hear that Arsene Wenger has been trying to find a way to get the French midfielder Mathieu Flamini out of the club. Ever since his younger compatriot Francis Coquelin burst back onto the scene for Arsenal about half way through last season, Flamini’s days have been numbered.
It is being reported that Arsene Wenger is about to delight the long suffering Arsenal fans by once again making a brilliant late transfer addition to the Arsenal squad, two years after he almost broke the internet by signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day.
