Arsenal accused of tapping-up? Right or wrong?

Arsenal have been accused of ‘tapping-up’ Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, but are they innocent?

The goalposts are certainly flexible when it comes to the terms of unlawful pursuits of players, with a number of big clubs given huge leeway when it comes to talking about rival clubs stars, and Arsene Wenger is one to claim victim of such offences.

Does Chelsea draw prove that Arsenal should have sold Ozil and Alexis?

Arsenal lost out on a potential 100m GBP by refusing to sell Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez despite the very real threat of them walking away from the club for nothing next summer, not to mention the potential disruption from the inevitable transfer rumours as they near the end of those contracts.

Why oh why did Arsenal turn down Fabregas return?

Arsene Wenger has helped to develop lots of star players through the Arsenal academy, but surely one of the best and most successful was the Spaniard Cesc Fabregas who was cruelly tapped up by Barcelona too early in his young career. But at least Wenger sensibly inserted a buy-back clause into the transfer agreement in case things didn’t work out in Fabregas’ hometown.

Typical Arsenal: Lemar wanted to join but we missed the boat…

Respected journalist David Ornstein has claimed that Thomas Lemar was keen on a switch to Arsenal, but the club took too long to agree a deal with Monaco. The France international was lined up as the man to improve our attacking options this summer, having already brought Alexandre Lacazette to the club from Lyon.

If Arsenal HAD to sell the OX where has the money gone?

Wenger wants to scrap January transfer window to stop Alexis moving to Man City?

All the rumours are saying that although Man City failed with a reported bid worth up to £60m for Arsenal’s Alexis on the last day of the transfer window, they have every intention of trying to persuade Wenger to sell in January instead.

Will Arsenal’s ‘tapped up’ players lose concentration from October?

Arsene Wenger has called for a close of the January transfer window, with fears over players performances in the run-up to Christmas.

The Frenchman endured a tough summer window, with a number of players pushing for the exit door, and he now fears his players will have their heads turned in the run-up to the winter window.

What do the fans make of Bellerin asking to leave Arsenal?

Last season, there was much made of the rumours that Barcelona wanted to re-sign the Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin, especially as his whole family moved out of his London home en masse to return to Cataluña last winter. As the youngster had recently signed a very long term contract just months before, Arsene Wenger readily dismissed the rumours as just paper speculation.
