With the Arsenal transfer rumours beginning to grow in number and frequency as the opening of the winter transfer window at the start of January draws ever closer, it is not surprising to read stories about some of our players being targeted by other clubs.
Whatever you think about the striker situation at Arsenal with the France international Olivier Giroud, with some claiming the big man is simply not up to the job and some feeling that he just needs more help, I think we can all agree that Arsenal are much better off with a Giroud that is full of confidence than one who is not.
We all know that the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere is a proper Gooner, as he proved a couple of times in recent years with his little sing songs about the Tottenham supporting side of north London after Arsenal won back to back FA cups. And I suspect that Jack’s anti-spud feelings might just have been part of his response to their former star Gareth Bale last night.
There are probably not many Arsenal fans that would agree with the above statement, as apart from one half season when the Welshman was world-class, he has regressed to being a run-of-the-mill workhorse once again.
First of all Arsenal fans, I am not going to read to much into the fact that the long linked and much reported transfer target of ours, Karim Benzema, did not feature in the starting XI of Rafa Benitez’ Real Madrid team for their first La Liga game last night.

It is looking extremely likely that Gareth Bale will be sold by Real Madrid to fund their next move for a new Galactico this summer, as he is deemed to be a flop by their standards, and it is very likely he will be returning to the Premier League.
As we prepare to take on Manchester United tomorrow where we could all but seal third place, and a place in the Champions League group stages for next term, we are distracting ourselves with an insight into the latest Arsenal rumours that are doing the rounds.
