The worst transfer window ever for Arsenal fans?

It all seems so long ago that Arsenal signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona, beating Liverpool into the bargain. We Arsenal fans were really happy and could hold our heads up and even take the mickey out of our Premier League rivals. Well that did not last very long did it?

In fact, that early flush of hope and expectations make this, for me, the most frustrating transfer deadline day ever. At least in recent years we were told that there was hardly any money so when we signed some unheard of player it was not too much of a shock.

BANG! Arsenal swoop to beat Spurs to Welbeck transfer!!!

At last it looks like Arsenal fans might have something to get excited about on this final day of the summer transfer window. As long as you consider the signing of the England international striker Danny Welbeck exciting that is.

Sky Sports are reporting that the 23-year old is currently having a medical ahead of joining the Gunners, when not long ago it looked like Welbeck was set to join our north London neighbours Tottenham on a season long loan deal.

Has Falcao failure forced Arsenal to give up on transfer window?

Arsenal were supposed to be `very active` on transfer deadline day today, but the silence from the Emirates is deafening and us fans are starting to worry that the deadline will come without Arsene Wenger adding a single extra player to the Arsenal squad.

In fact, Wenger seems to have knocked off for the day according to a Talksport report that claims the Frenchman has flown to Italy to be the referee in a charity football match. Really I am not making this up, although I hope that somebody is.

Arsenal offered experienced goal-scorer until January?

Arsenal are said to have been offered MLS striker Jermain Defoe on a temporary deal until January, as the former Spurs striker seeks a return to the Premier League, according to The Telegraph.

Defoe is said to be in advanced talks with previous boss Harry Redknapp´s QPR, but the player has asked his agent to sound out a move to Arsenal as his preferred destination.

JD moved to Toronto FC in January of this year, and scored 11 goals in his 16 appearances for the club. It is thought that he has not settled into the Canadian lifestyle as well as he had hoped, and is keen on a return to England.

Giovinco transfer rumour gives Arsenal fans the SHORT straw

Arsenal have had all summer to sort out a new striker and even if Arsene Wenger really did believe that he had enough options before, the injury to Olivier Giroud that has made signing a centre forward even more important happened over a week ago.

But here we are again, somehow, nervously checking the sports websites’ deadline day updates in the dwindling hope that the Prof has got it all in hand and will pull off another Mesut Ozil style stunning swoop before the window shuts tonight.

Analysis of why Arsenal couldn’t beat Leicester

What cost Arsenal from picking all three points against Leicester? by SE

Wenger’s men drew against Leicester last night, as they failed to capitalize on Manchester City slipping up at Etihad, on Saturday. A win for Arsenal would have seen them pip, both Man City and Liverpool, to 3rd place in the embryonic Barclays Premier League table. But what cost Arsenal from picking all three points against a spirited Leicester side?

DONE DEAL but this defender is heading OUT of Arsenal

There is finally some action for Arsenal as the summer transfer window starts collecting glasses and shouting drink up please, it’s time. But this transfer action is not really what we want to see, as it sees a player leaving Arsenal rather than one coming in.

The report in the Daily Mail reveals that the Gunners have agreed to sell the young Spanish centre back Ignasi Miquel to Norwich City who are trying to bounce straight back into the Premier League. Miquel spent the latter part of last season in the Championship with Leicester and has earned himself a move with his performances for the Foxes.

Arsenal still fighting Roma as PSG admit Rabiot is to leave!

It seems as though the reports in the last few days about the Serie A club Roma beating Arsenal to the signature of the central midfielder Adrien Rabiot may have been a bit premature. The Gunners had previously been said to be the favourites to seal the deal with PSG for their talented youngster and it now looks like the battle between the clubs is still on.

Sky Sports have reported that the French champions are still in talks with different clubs and that their president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has revealed that he does expect the 19-year old French midfielder to be playing elsewhere this season, so Arsenal fans will be hoping that it is the Emirates that will be his new home.

Carvalho transfer OFF as Arsenal fans start to fume

If you ask most Arsenal fans whether the club could do with a defensive midfielder, be ready for a verbal hairdryer, because we have needed one for at least the last three years, But once again during the summer transfer window, the Gunners have been linked with every central midfielder out there but once again look like going into a campaign with Mikel Arteta as the main man.

Have Arsenal said no thanks to Falcao AND Premier League title?

So Arsene Wenger does not think that Arsenal need the striking services of Radamerl Falcao then, it seems. The Frenchman must have seen something in the 17 goal free Premier League appearances of Yaya Sanogo that the rest of us are missing.

Because the news all over the media at the moment, including Metro, is that the Colombia international striker Radamel Falcao will be signing for our Premier League rivals Man United today. We don’t know whether it is a permanent move or the season long loan deal that has been talked about it and frankly I could not care less. I am just thoroughly cheesed off.

Should Arsenal accept Campbell request to join Benfica?

I know that Arsene Wenger has mentioned Joel Campbell many times recently as part of his striking options for Arsenal. Not only that, but the Frenchman said straight out the other day that he was not going to let the young Costa Rica international go anywhere, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Frenchman said, “We’ve had lots of enquiries and turned them down. There have been plenty of clubs interested, but I don’t know how many.

“Once I say to my assistant he won’t go out on loan, even if people ask about him, my assistant doesn’t even tell me. When I say no it’s no.

Arsenal set to sign Colombian hitman – but which one?

Deadline day finally arrives. And if the rumours are true then Arsenal are definitely trying to sign another striker to cover for Olivier Giroud while he is out injured. All Arsenal fans are hoping that the top Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao is our main target, but with a price of £55m and Real Madrid and Man City’s millions to compete with I doubt very much that he will be the one.
