Piers Morgan has attempted to be the barer of bad news as usual, after claiming that Mesut Ozil is considering his future amidst interest from European giants Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
There has been little mention of Mathieu Flamini leaving Arsenal this summer despite the whole world and his dog knowing that Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Flamini were all out of contract this summer. Matheiu was the only one of the three that actually featured in a few games last season and he wasn’t completely useless, and it seems that Wenger certainly hasn’t ruled out the idea.
Now we all know that Arsene Wenger is always looking for an uncut diamond when he goes searching for new Arsenal players, but some of his purchases have defied belief, like the 1million laid out for the French Second Division “star” Yaya Sanogo.
Aaron Ramsey has talked up a switch to La Liga in the future, but how much effect would his exit have on Arsenal?
The Welshman has been in-and-out of the first-team this season, and is now outside my preferred XI, following the emergence of Alex Iwobi from the youth side.
It is nice to know that Arsene Wenger has given Arsenal fans hope that we are finally going to get the “urgent” signings that we have been screaming for for the last few years. Namely, one top striker, one top midfielder and one top centre-back.
At this time of the year Arsenal fans are inundated with various (and sprurious) transfer rumours regarding just about every available (or even unavailable!) player on the planet, but I am a firm believer of checking out the bookies prices to give us an indication of whether we really have any chance of signing certain players.
Now that the arrival of Granit Xhaka has finally been confirmed by the official Arsenal website, it would appear that the Gunners have quickly moved on to their next targets. With Wenger set to be commentating at the Euros he will be keen to get his targets signed up before the competition starts.
Granit Xhaka has been confirmed as joining this week, but who could be next through the door?
Another midfielder could follow the Swiss midfielder to North-London, with Celtic’s Tom Rogic linked. The Australian international enjoyed somewhat of a breakthrough year with the Scottish champions, scoring 10 goals from midfield. We are supposedly ‘confident‘ in in his signature, which could boost our reputation in his home-country.
