There is no suggestion that this is a vital part of the deal that will see Arsenal complete the transfer of the France international right back Mathieu Debuchy from Newcastle United, but Alan Pardew want to see the young Gunner Carl Jenkinson move in the other direction, according to a Daily Mail report.
According to many Arsenal transfer rumours in the media, the transfer fee is already agreed with the Magpies for Debuchy and the transfer is expected to be announced official this week. It is a little odd that the 28-year old Frenchman is about to take over from the long serving Bacary Sagna at Arsenal, just as he appears to have done so in Didier Deschamp’s France team, but it is great news for us. .......Read the full article here

Everyone is getting excited about all the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with top-class replacements for the departing Lukasz Fabianski and Bacary Sagna, but few people are thinking from Arsene Wenger’s point of view. Has everybody forgotten Wenger’s mantra of “Arsenal don’t buy stars – we make them…..”
With that in mind in may pay to consider that we have a very talented youngster already in our squad; the Macedonian U21 keeper Deyan Iliev. Wenger brought him in on deadline day in 2012 and he has been solid in the Arsenal Youth team this season, and was apparently set to be snapped up by the Belgian club Mechelen this summer, only to be listed on Arsene Wenger’s retained list for the coming season. .......Read the full article here

Following the recent departure of promising full-back Hector Bellerin to Watford on loan, another promising Arsenal youngster has left the club on a temporary basis to gain some competitive experience. It has been confirmed that the versatile midfielder Nico Yennaris has joined Championship side Bournemouth on a short-term term deal valid until January.

Bendtner leads Arsenal youth to victory by Twig
Nicklas Bendtner’s pass to Eisfeld was delightful; almost Cesc-like. Had the pass come from Arsenal new signing, Mesut Ozil, I’m sure we would all have been glowing about the assist all day long – even if he didn’t do much else after that. But since it was Nicklas Bendtner, the reception has been a little bit muted. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal vs West Brom match review by Ash
Arsenal travelled to West Bromwich to face the Baggies in what was expected to be a highly contested League Cup tie. The game certainly did disappoint however as it was overall quite a flat game, however in the end thankfully the Gunners managed to come away with a win after both extra time and penalties.

He was always known as “Mr.Consistent” because of his, well you guessed it, consistency. However, Sagna has been below par last season and with only a year left on his contract; Arsenal will need to be looking at replacements soon. .......Read the full article here
