Wenger backs Jack but also signs `new Wilshere` for Arsenal

No pressure Jack, but Arsenal today signed up the player that some have dubbed the new Jack Wilshere. Calling young players the next Messi or the Bulgarian Ronaldo always seems a bit daft to me, but the fact is that 17-year old Daniel Crowley does play in a similar central midfield role to Wilshere and will be hoping to challenge him for a place in the starting line-up before too long.

Crowley spent last season impressing in the Arsenal youth team after joining the Gunners from Aston Villa last summer. He has also featured at undergae level for the England international team, so it is great news for the future that Arsenal have agreed a professional contract with the promising and talented youngster.

Arsenal MUST keep spending or forget title says former boss

Despite the fact that Arsenal have signed the two most expensive players in our history within the last 12 months, and with Arsene Wenger already having spent more money this summer than in any other transfer window, it is still not enough to bring the Gunners the trophy we really want, and become Premier League champions again, according to our former manager George Graham.

Has Arsenal fitness coach sealed Carvalho transfer instead of Khedira?

When Arsene Wenger was talking the other day about the transfer business that Arsenal had done so far this summer, the Frenchman could not hide his delight at now having the financial firepower to bring in players of the quality of Alexis Sanchez, Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy.

He also dropped a pretty strong hint that Arsenal were not done with the summer transfer window yet, either, and suggested that there would be another couple of players coming to join the Gunners in the next few weeks. And although the club has been linked with the Real Madrid and Germany star Sami Khedira all summer, The Telegraph are reporting that the first of those two players could actually be William Carvalho of Sporting Lisbon instead.

Arsenal really DO NOT need another striker this year

Why Wenger isn’t interested in buying a striker this summer by KJ

Buying a striker has been the message by many Arsenal fans ever since we sold Van Persie to Man Utd and yet here we are almost in August with no apparent intention of bringing in a striker. We’ve skipped on the likes of Mandzukic, Costa, Lukaku, Immobile and seem to have decided to stick with Giroud instead – but why?

Arsenal WON’T sell to Man Utd but WILL fight them for Hummels!

It seems like things are really changing for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal these days. The trophy drought is finally over and the club are now releasing decent sums of money for the manager to spend on players. Not only does that mean that Wenger has been able to buy top class players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, but it means that he is not forced to sell his best players either.

Wenger confirms Campbell and Sanogo will stay at Arsenal

There was much discussion during the summer about whether or not Arsenal two new young strikers, Joel Campbell and Yaya Sanogo should be sent out on loan this season, especially as they are unlikely to get many starting spots with the new star-studded squad that Arsene Wenger has assembled.

But after yesterday’s brilliant performances by the young duo in the massacre of Benfica, Wenger has now made it clear that both of them will be remaining at Arsenal. Here is an extract from the after-match interview with Arsene Wenger on Arsenal.com:

Arsenal loan out Campbell? Don’t be DAFT!!

It took Joel Campbell just a few days and one pre-season game to prove all the Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger was going to send him out on loan again, about as daft as Daffy Duck. What a debut from the young Costa Rica international!

We should not have been surprised, I suppose, after his showing at the World Cup finals in Brazil showed that we could have a star of the future on our hands, but any idea that the 22-year old forward might be a bit nervous on his first time in front of the Emirates crowd was proven wrong in the first few minutes.

Will West Ham loan save Jenkinson’s Arsenal career?

Arsenal and West Ham have confirmed that the England international defender Carl Jenkinson will spend this season on loan at Upton Park. It must have been a tough decision for Jenkinson to make, being a boyhood Arsenal fan as he is, but looking at it logically, this was probably the best thing for his future as a professional footballer.

After the Gunners signed Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle and then Calum Chambers from Southampton, along with the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin looking to break through from the academy, 22-year old Jenkinson has accepted that he needs to go elsewhere in order to get the regular first team football that will help him progress.

WOW! Get ready Arsenal fans! Wenger promises more signings!!

With Arsenal set to host our own regular pre-season tournament, the Emirates Cup, this weekend, Arsene Wenger has been speaking to the media at the London Colney training base, as reported by The Mirror. And the Frenchman wasted no time in giving us Arsenal fans a great reason for excitement.

The Gunners have already done some good business in the transfer market, but we are all hoping for a bit more. So Wenger’s revelation that he is still looking to make more signings is music to our ears. We have heard this sort of thing before, of course, like in January when Wenger said he was looking but just couldn’t seem to find anyone but an injured Swedish midfielder.

Forget Silvestre! Sanchez is PERFECT for Arsenal

First of all, for a player who will always be remembered as an Arsenal flop, after his move from Premier League rivals back in 2008, Mikael Silvestre has got a real cheek to talk about someone else being the wrong choice for the Gunners.

But that is just what the French defender, currently without a club after being released by the mighty Portland Timbers of the MLS, has said about out star signing of the summer, Alexis Sanchez. As reported by the Evening Standard, Silvestre thinks that the Chile international is too similar to the players already in the Arsenal team.

His agent and other rumours point to Khedira’s Arsenal transfer!!

There are more Arsenal transfer rumours in the media today, suggesting that the deal to bring Sami Khedira to Arsenal from Real Madrid this summer, might actually still happen.

Just a day or so ago we were told that the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich had entered the race to sign the central midfielder, and that they were strong favourites to beat the Gunners to the punch. However, that now appears to be somewhat wide of the mark, with the players own agent denying any links with Bayern.
