He may not be the striker that a lot of Arsenal fans were hoping to see come to north London this summer to boost the fire power of the Gunners, but the Croatian Republic international Mario Mandzukic does have a lot going for him. And according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours he could be available after his current club Juventus beat us to the mega money transfer of Gonzalo Higuain.
I am very glad to hear that Arsenal are not wasting any time in trying to sign a replacement for our World Cup winning centre back Per Mertesacker, after the beanpole German picked up a knee injury in the Gunners’ first pre-season outing against the French club Lens last week.
It seems clear to me that the answer to the question of whether Arsenal will be successful in the pursuit of the Algerian international star Riyad Mahrez lies firmly with the player himself and not with his club Leicester City. As we saw with the transfer of their French midfielder N’Golo Kante to Chelsea for something like £30 million the Foxes are not going to hold on to a player that really wants to leave as long as they get a decent price.
So it looks like Arsenal are ready to test the resolve of the French Ligue 1 club Olympic Lyonnais and see whether they meant what they said recently about their France international forward star Alexandre Lacazette being an irreplaceable part of their set up and not being for sale at any price.
Whether or not Arsene Wenger stays in his job as manager of Arsenal Football Club beyond the range of his current contract, which is due to expire at the end of the coming season, is probably still the Frenchman’s decision and I reckon that what happens over the next nine months will play a big part in that decision.
know that it sounds like a lot of money, and it is, especially for Arsenal to pay for a striker that did not even make the national squad of France for the Euros this summer. The sort of money that is being talked about it costing us to persuade Lyon to part with their talented young forward Alexandre Lacazette, as reported by The Mirror, is around the level of the club’s record spending on a single transfer.
Arsenal fans could end up happy about this injury news by Sam P.
There was a little bit of good news for Arsenal fans on the injury front this week, with Arsene Wenger declaring that even though our Chilean international star Alexis Sanchez was not being included in the Arsenal squad for the pre-season tour of America, as reported by Metro, his ankle injury was actually not too bad.
According to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours the Gunners and Liverpool will be battling it out as rivals for the signature of Real Madrid winger Jesé Rodriguez. But just how much truth to the tale is there in this rumour?
