Schneiderlin snubs contract to move closer to Arsenal transfer!!

There is some very good news for Arsenal fans who are hoping that Morgan Schneiderlin is the player that Arsene Wenger signs in the January transfer window to shore up our fragile midfield. The France international, who was keen to move to a bigger club in the summer, seems to be no keener to remain at St. Mary’s despite their excellent start to the season.

Arsenal get crushing blow to Reus transfer hopes

The race to sign Marco Reus is hotting up and Arsenal fans are definitely hoping that the Gunners are one of the clubs in with a decent chance of completing the transfer for the talented German international forward. Whether that is to be in the up and coming January transfer window or when his £20 million release clause becomes active in the summer remains to be seen.

But the latest development with the Borussia Dortmund star has dealt a devastating blow to the Gunners’ hopes of signing the 25-year old. Because according to a Daily Express report the news from Germany is that Reus has taken up a new hobby, learning the Spanish language.

The players that Arsenal NEED to sign NOW

Arsenal Must Mass Clear Average Players and Sign World Class Now! by Nikko

When Arsene Wenger arrived at Arsenal, good football arrived. It was not just positive football but also trophies and for the first time Arsenal become a regular competitor at the highest level in England and Europe.

Flamini sees just 1 but Arsenal have 3 positives from Stoke

It is very hard to find any positives for Arsenal after seeing us taken to the cleaners by Stoke City, a team we should beat but just cannot seem to manage it at the Britannia stadium. The fact that their fans love to taunt Arsene Wenger, Aaron Ramsey and now every other Gunner just makes handing them a victory feel even worse.

But there are some positives to be taken from yesterday’s game and our French midfielder Mathieu Flamini identified one of them in his comments after the match, as reported by Arsenal.com. While the 30-year old was devastated by the team’s limp first half display and apologised profusely to the Arsenal fans for it, he rightly pointed out that the Gunners were much better in the second half.

Arsenal MUST go for this Man City midfielder

Why Arsenal Have to Move For this English International!

Among the several positions on the pitch where Arsenal need reinforcements, the most urgent necessity at the moment is at defensive midfield. The Gunners haven’t had a decent midfield enforcer for quite some time now and our lack of one has cost us on innumerable occasions. Keeping this in mind, it just so happens that Manchester City’s James Milner will be out of contract at the end of the season.

Wenger CONFIRMS Arsenal transfer interest in young defender

It is not like Arsene Wenger to give away any of his Arsenal transfer plans at the best of times, and with the opening of the January transfer window now less than a month away, the Frenchman is usually even more tight-lipped than usual.

So the fact that he confirmed his interest in the young English defender Tyrone Mings, as reported by The Mirror, is fairly out of character for the Prof. The 21-year old is currently playing in the Championship for Ipswich Town and his usual role is as a left back, but at 6ft 3in and with his power and pace, it is thought that he could easily make the switch to central defence, which is coincidentally the weakest part of the Arsenal squad right now.

Titi must return to the Emirates By Twig

I am not a Chelsea fan, but seeing Drogba in his second spell still doing the business for Chelsea gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. It was like watching a repeat of history. Although Drogba has tormented my Arsenal team quite severely over the years I was quite pleased when Mourinho signed him up for a second spell. Drogba will probably call it quits at Chelsea which will be the most befitting end to his amazing career with the Blues.

Why Arsenal WILL NOT be bidding for Petr Cech

New Kid on the Block : Emi Martinez
On the verge of leaving Arsenal in the summer, Argentine 22-year-old goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez feared that his time was up at the Emirates after Arsene Wenger signed David Ospina as back up to number one goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. Jumping forward a few months we’ve seen the young goalkeeper thrust into the spot light of the first team. With some excellent performances in both the Premier League and the Champions League, Martinez has quickly become one of the most talked about goalkeepers in European football.
Martinez kept his third clean sheet in a row after Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Southampton on Wednesday night. Since standing in for regular number one Wojciech Szczesny the third choice goalkeeper has risen to the challenge and made a big impression. In fact, Martinez has gone as far as saying that he now wants to challenge Szczesny for the number one spot. A clear sign that he is full of confidence on the back of his superb performances.
Our friends at Opta powered fantasy football game www.oulala.com have focused their attention on the two Arsenal goalkeepers on a per game basis and Martinez has a point as to why he deserves Wenger’s backing. The stats suggest that Szczesny will face a fight in regaining his first team spot once he regains full fitness. Martinez leads the Pole for clean sheets, fewer goals conceded, saves per goal, catches and punches.

Premier-League-Martinez-and-Szczesny

With Szczesny and Ospina both due back from injury during December, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger faces a festive headache in whether to stick with the ever impressive youngster or to recall Wojciech Szczesny. Wenger may now consider crossing Chelsea’s Petr Cech off of his Christmas shopping list with the goalkeeping talent that has emerged at Arsenal.

Podolski pushing even harder for Arsenal exit

Despite Arsenal being extremely short on bodies to help with squad rotation, we are hardly going to miss a player that has played about just 25 minutes all season (except for the League Cup game against Southampton where he was anonymous.

So it makes sense for Wenger to get Lukas Podolski off the payroll as soon as possible if he has no intention of playing the German international, and the latest Arsenal rumours are saying that he wants to go back to Koln one day, and now the Express is saying that Roberto Mancini is keen on taking him to Inter Milan.

BANG! POW! Double DM transfer blow for Arsenal

For all us Arsenal fans know, Arsene Wenger might not even be thinking about signing a player to strengthen the Gunners in the defensive midfield area when the January transfer window opens. About 99.9 percent of us hope that he is though and the current injuries to Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta, coupled with the captain’s age, makes it a lot more likely.

This week, however, the Gunners have been handed a double blow, with two of the players heavily linked with a move to north London seemingly being put out of our reach.

Arsenal young Guns spell the end for Podolski and Campbell?

The tension has been building between the Arsenal fringe players Lukas Podolski and Joel Campbell and the manager Arsene Wenger all season, if you believe what you read in the papers. The young Costa Rican international has claimed that he is happy to fight for his place in the Gunners team, but we keep hearing rumours that he is not happy and wants to move on if he does not start playing more.

Arsenal warned transfer target will cost BIG money

I really hope that Arsene Wenger’s comments the other day about how hard it was to find good quality players available in the January transfer window, at the same time as praising the Arsenal left back Nacho Monreal on his ability to cover at the centre of defence does not mean that us fans are in for more frustration in the transfer market.

Assuming that the manager has not changed his mind, however, and still accepts that the Gunners are dangerously short of defensive options, it will be interesting to see which player, or players, the Frenchman goes for in January to strengthen his squad.
