MASSIVE Arsenal boost as midfield target puts in transfer request

Arsenal may have already sorted out one of the bits of transfer business that will be done when the January transfer window opens in a little over a month. We won’t know until then of course, but one of the players linked with a move to the Emirates to strengthen the central midfield area has now handed in a transfer request at his current club and so is very likely to be moving on in January, according to the Daily Express.

Arsenal told BIGGER bid needed for midfield star’s January transfer

That January transfer window, and the chance it offers Arsenal to redress the problems in the squad that have seen us fail to win the Champions League qualifying group, once again, and to sit languishing down in 8th place in the Premier League, with just four wins from 12 games so far.

So there will be a lot of work going on behind the scenes, even though the official action cannot begin until the window actually opens on the 1st of January. And a lot of that work at Arsenal will involve identifying and preparing bids for the right player to add steel to the centre of the Gunners midfield.

Klopp makes BIG step towards replacing Wenger at Arsenal

Unless he has been on the moon or simply does not read the papers or use the internet, Jurgen Klopp must have heard the Arsenal transfer rumours that have proclaimed him as one of the main front runners to take over from our current manager Arsene Wenger, whenever that might be. And after the loss against Man United, it could be sooner rather than later.

It seems as though the German is not against the idea at all. In fact, Klopp has almost encouraged the Gunners to make a move to prise him away from his current club Borussia Dortmund, in a statement reported by the Daily Mail. And the 47-year old could be ready to take the reins at Arsenal sooner rather than later.

How Barcelona will HELP Arsenal solve DM problem in January

I am not sure if you have heard this one before Gooners, but some people think that Arsenal could do with signing a world class central midfielder, a player with defensive discipline, high work rate and the power to battle Premier League opponents. Oh I don’t know, maybe someone like Patrick Vieira perhaps. I seem to remember the Gunners doing quite well when he played for us.

Why Modric injury could HELP Arsenal complete January transfer

It looked like bad news for Arsenal when the reports came in this week that the Real Madrid and Croatia international midfielder Luka Modric had picked up an injury while on international duty. But now it seems as though it could actually help Arsenal to complete the transfer to solve the long running defensive midfield issue at the club.

At first look, the Modric injury that will keep him on the sidelines seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of our chances of signing Sami Khedira in the January transfer window, because it opened up the opportunity for the German to play regularly, while Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti would be reluctant to let him leave.

Is Arsenal the EPL side that PSG star is set to join in January?

The priority for Arsenal in the January transfer window is likely to be for a central defender, as the recent injury problems of Laurent Koscielny have highlighted just how thin the Arsenal squad is in the defensive area. But many Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger finally accepts that he needs to sign a combative central midfielder to strengthen the spine of the team as well.

Joel Campbell rubbishes Arsenal exit rumours

Joel Campbell showed massive improvement last season at Olympiakos and with Costa Rica at the World Cup, but since his return to Arsenal he has found it very difficult to persuade Arsene Wenger to give him some playing time in the Premier League.

This has led to many rumours that the youngster is unhappy at he Emirates and is desperate to leave in January, even if it is only on yet another loan deal, to get more first team experience on the pitch. This media-led frenzy has now fostered rumours that Benfica and Inter Milan (amongst others) are trying to lure him away from Arsenal.

Former Gunner backs Klopp to shine as new Arsenal boss!

There are plans, apparently, for some Arsenal fans to show their displeasure at the way the Gunners have struggled and stuttered at the start of the season, with the manager Arsene Wenger set to be the main subject of the fans’ anger.

Once again it looks like Arsenal are going to have to settle for a top four finish and place in the Champions League, and we need to improve in order to do that. So despite the Frenchman having signed a three year contract extension in the summer, the pressure on him to retire or move upstairs into an executive position will only increase if Arsenal continue to struggle in the Premier League.

Podolski pushing even harder for Arsenal exit

Lukas Podolski is using his time with the German national team to get some proper playing time on the pitch, and also to voice his displeasure at being left on the sidelines with Arsenal. Now that he has been backed up by the Germany manager Joachim Low, Podolski has made it even clearer that he needs to get away from the Emirates.

“I’ve spent the last four months making brief appearances,” he was quoted as aying in the Standard. “I’ve had to wrap myself up warm in my winter coat with my hat and scarf on to watch the others playing.

Arsenal face Barcelona battle over top transfer target

First of all, Gooners, I do think that Arsenal should not really have a problem completing this transfer if Arsene Wenger and the board are serious about it and don’t do the usual trick of penny pinching and dithering. But if the Gunners do mess about in the transfer pursuit of Lars Bender, then it could all end in disappointment.

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are now ready to ramp up our interest in the 25-year old Germany and Bayer Leverkusen star to fill the holding midfield role, after reports from Spain that Sami Khedira looks like staying in Spain’s La Liga and signing a new contract with Real Madrid after all.

Khedira rules out Arsenal move in January

A lot of Arsenal fans were pinning our hopes on getting Sami Khedira from Real Madrid in January, but the latest utterings from the German international has made it clear that he will not be leaving the Spanish giants this winter.

Khedira said in the Mail: ‘Right now, I cannot see any reason why I would leave the club this winter.’

‘Real Madrid is a great club to be at. This club has a place in my heart and there is absolutely no reason for me to say that I want to or have to leave.

Internationals help Podolski and Campbell get last Arsenal chance

The next couple of months could be pivotal for the Arsenal careers of our two forwards, Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell. Both the World Cup winning German and the Young Costa Rican have clearly been chafing at their lack of playing opportunities and if things do not change, then January could see one or both of them waving goodbye to the Gunners.

It is a tricky situation for Arsene Wenger as well. The boss, I’m sure, would love to be able to give these two strikers more time on the pitch but as our results have not been going so well, he must do what he thinks is best for the club.
