Is Jackson Martinez moving closer to Arsenal move?

It appears as though the media do not believe Arsene Wenger, how strange! After the Frenchman made it plain as day that Arsenal were not in the transfer market for any more strikers, there seem to have been more Arsenal transfer rumours concerning forwards than ever before.

Do they think the Prof is doing the old Poker bluff again? Who me, guv, after a striker? Nah mate, I would not have released the Greatest Striker In The World if that was the case. It would not be the first time the Gunners manager has tried to throw the hounds of the media off the scent, that is for sure.

WOW! Messi to Arsenal transfer not a pipe dream after all?

I got a lot of stick from some Arsenal fans after writing an article last year about the Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi possibly coming to play for Arsenal. Now I am not saying that I was right, because I wrote the story as an April Fool’s Day piece, but amazingly, The Express are now reporting that arguably the best player to ever lace up a pair of football boots was actually contemplating becoming a Gunner.

Why Monaco could hold key to Arsenal transfer plans!

Hold on a minute, you might say, Arsenal are not being linked with any of the players from AS Monaco, although there are a few in that squad we might like. But the moneybags team from the French Ligue 1 could still have a big say in the transfer plans of the Gunners this summer.

It remains to be seen, of course, but if the transfer rumours are correct, the player who should have been given the Golden Ball at the World Cup, along with the Golden Boot for scoring the most goals, could soon be completing his transfer to Real Madrid in La Liga.

Khedira transfer – Arsenal having to wait for Real Madrid yet again?

At least Arsenal fans are not going to have to wait until the last few days of the transfer window, nervously checking the sports websites dozens of times a day and wondering what the hell Arsene Wenger is playing at. Having already done some good business in the transfer market has made us all a lot more relaxed.

But Arsenal still need to make a few more key signings in key areas and, just like last year with Gareth Bale and Mesut Ozil, it looks like the Gunners will have to wait until La Liga’s Real Madrid wrap up their own transfers before we can get the player or players we want from them.

Arsenal chasing William Carvalho? Really?

Why Arsenal won’t sign William Carvalho by KJ

There have been reports by Matt Law at the Daily Telegraph that Arsenal have made a £24 million bid for 22 year old William Carvalho. This was initially reported by O Jogo and Tony Lean (who was one of the first to report the Sanchez deal) feels that our interest in Carvalho is real. Even with all this going on, I don’t believe we’ll sign Carvalho, and here’s why.

Transfer rumour madness has Arsenal chasing FOUR D.M.s!

I know it is a bit hot at the minute, but the weather seems to be really affecting some people, mainly the ones who write the Arsenal transfer rumours it seems. We are used to the Gunners being linked with every player and his dog whenever the transfer window is open in January or the summer, but sometimes it gets out of hand.

£16m Balotelli deal the real reason Remy to Arsenal is off?

I must admit to being a bit baffled as to why Arsenal just stepped aside and allowed Liverpool to lead the race of Loic Remy. There was talk of his £80,000 a week wages being a problem for Arsene Wenger, but that is not a lot for a Premier League class striker these days.

The BBC, however, have reported that the Anfield club and QPR have already agreed the transfer fee of £8.5 million, which was the striker’s very affordable release clause and it looks like the move will soon be done and dusted.

Arsenal ready to take £10m Man United bid for Vermaelen?

Nothing has been confirmed yet, by either Arsenal or Man United, but it appears as though the transfer of the Gunners captain to our Premier League rivals could be back on. Thomas Vermaelen was pictured this week on holiday with former Arsenal captain and turncoat Robin van Persie, and the two could soon be seeing a lot more of each other.

The Belgium international defender is in the same situation as the Dutchman was when he forced a move to United two years ago, with just a year left remaining on his contract and Arsene Wenger well aware that he is not about to sign a new one. The Frenchman still wants decent value for his players, but the £10 million bid reported by The Mirror could well be enough to convince Arsenal to sell.

Arsenal transfer news – Khedira off, Schneiderlin talks ON!

Arsenal may have more money to spend this summer than ever before, with the debt incurred by building the Emirates stadium no longer requiring Arsene Wenger to scour the French second division and other corners of the football globe looking to unearth a hidden gem in the transfer market.

But the Frenchman is still not the kind of manager, like many others I could mention, that does not care about the club’s money. The Prof always wants to get value for money, which is why he has apparently refused to meet the £80,000 a week salary demands of Loic Remy. And the same financial acumen seems to have put paid to the possible transfer of Sami Khedira from Real Madrid.

Will Arsenal regret after letting Remy sign for Liverpool?

There is a good chance that Arsene Wenger could end up kicking himself over this one, as Arsenal are set to see one of our long term transfer targets, Loic Remy, sign a long term contract with Premier League rivals Liverpool, according to a report in Metro.

It appears as though their manager Brendan Rodgers has no qualms about meeting the £80,000 a week wage demands of the French striker, as well as paying the release clause in his QPR contract of around £8-10 million. I still do not really understand why the Gunners baulked at this amount of money, because it is well within our pay sclae and ability to cover it.

Rodgers reveals reason (he reckons) for Sanchez choosing Arsenal

Last summer definitely saw Liverpool get one over on Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger making the infamous bid for Luis Suarez of one pound over £40 million. That may or may not have triggered a release clause in the cannibalistic Uruguayan striker’s contract, but they stood firm and used the opportunity to take the mickey and show Arsenal plenty of disrespect along the way.

Valencia one of THREE clubs fighting Arsenal for Ospina transfer!

It was being reported a few days ago that Arsenal had agreed terms with the French Ligue 1 club Nice for the transfer of their keeper David Ospina. With a transfer fee of around £3-4 million, it looked like Arsene wenger had done it again, with the Colombian international keeper showing some fantastic ability in Brazil this summer.

According to a Daily Mail report, the Nice player had been on the Frenchman’s transfer wish list before the World Cup finals, but his excellent performances for Colombia this summer have brought him to the attention of a number of other clubs.
