Arsenal need to move fast to beat United to Wanyama

Arsenal are workinh hard to bring at least two quality players to the Emirates before the transfer window closes in just over a week. Most people seem to think that one of these will be a striker, with David Villa and Stevan Jovetic two possible transfer targets. The other is likely to be a defensive midfielder, possibly a player in the same mould as Abou Diaby. With the club also short on centre backs, Arsene Wenger may well opt for a player who can also fill that position in an emergency.

Is Big Vic the man for Arsenal?

The clock is ticking for Arsenal, and there are just eight days left of the transfer window left. Arsene Wenger has stated that the club is working on bringing a couple of new players this January, and one of those could be the powerful Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama, according to reports in the Independent and the Mail that claim an offer is being considered.

The 21-year old did no harm to his chances of a move to the Premier league tonight, with another strong performance for Celtic which he capped with a goal. Wanyama got Celtic’s second with a towering back post header. He also hit the woodwork from another corner. Wanyama began his career as a defender but now plays in midfield and has added goals to his game as well.

Celtic brace for Arsenal bid for Wanyama?

After Arsene Wenger declared that the club are ready to spend some serious money in the January transfer window, some clubs will be dreading the phone ringing as they may be about to lose one of their best players to the Gunners. One of these clubs is Celtic, the Scottish champions, and the manager Neil Lennon is going to try to persuade his Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama to sign a new contract with the club in order to keep clubs like Arsenal at bay.

Arsenal WILL spend serious money says Wenger – better hurry!

Arsene Wenger is leaving it a bit late to get his transfer business done and bring in some new players that Arsenal need. He must have some players in mind, however, after promising that the club was going to spend some money, and a substantial amount at that.

Wenger was explaining the club’s situation on Al-Jazeera TV, and he said that Arsenal were now over the situation we have been in for years due to the financing of the Emirates stadium, which will be music to the ears of Gooners everywhere.

Will Arsenal lose Capoue to Chelsea?

Arsenal are in danger of watching as all of the potential signings get snapped up by other Premier league clubs. I don’t understand what we are waiting for. Maybe Arsene Wenger does not want to get his pants pulled down over transfer fees, but Arsenal need some players and we don’t want to be left to pick over the players that other teams have left.

Arsenal transfer rumours McCarthy and Wanyama

Arsenal are planning bids for two midfielders, if the rumours are true. Victor Wanyama from Celtic has been watched by scouts from the Gunners, and was linked with a possible transfer in the summer. Celtic are keen to hold on to the talented and powerful young player, especially as they are through to the next round of the champions league against Juventus. The Scottish champions value Wanyama at well over £10 million.

It’s Huntelaar plus others for Arsenal in January transfers!

Arsene Wenger is constantly asked about who, if anyone, Arsenal will be signing to strengthen the team when the January transfer window opens on January 1st. For the last two games he has given pretty much the same answer, that he does not want to react after a defeat, it is better to think carefully. He was nearly laughing at the reporter who quizzed him last night. Did they really expect him to tell them all his plans?

Maybe the Champions League DID affect Arsenal

Arsene Wenger suggested that Arsenal were jaded against Aston Villa on Saturday, after the North London derby against Tottenham and a crucial Champions league game against Montpellier. Many Arsenal fans may have seen that as just an excuse and there have been angry reactions to the draw, with lots of blame levelled at the French manager, but if you look around Europe, there is some evidence to back up Wenger’s claim.

Can Arsenal beat Man United to Celtic star Wanyama?

Celtic are understandably keen to hold on to their Kenyan midfield star Victor Wanyama, but they face a tough task fighting off interest from Arsenal and Manchester United. The 21-year old, whose best position is as a central defensive midfielder, was catapulted on to the world stage with two outstanding performances against Barcelona in the Champions league.

Celtic were unlucky to come away from the Nou Camp with nothing after Barcelona came from behind and scored a winner with almost the last kick of the game. Wanyama was even better at Celtic Park, effectively stopping Barcelona’s one touch midfielders and scoring the opening goal. That is why Neil Lennon has suggested that his value has increased from the million they paid for him last summer to around £20 million now.

Arsenal and the defensive midfield dilemna

With the January transfer window getting closer, the rumours about Arsenal transfer targets are getting more frequent and the fans are hoping and praying that the Gunners actually spend some cash this time around. In the summer, a good percentage of the rumours were about which defensive midfielder was coming to the Emirates, but Arsenal surprised everybody by not only failing to buy one, but selling Alex Song to Barcelona.

Celtic star Wanyama could be Arsenal transfer target

Victor Wanyama is an international midfielder for Kenya who signed for the Scottish champions, Celtic, from the Belgian club Beerschot AC last summer. His performances have drawn the attention of some big clubs, including Arsenal, and Celtic have prepared a new and improved contract to keep him in Glasgow but the player has not signed it.

Neil Lennon is desperate to keep the powerful and combative midfielder but may find it difficult. He was Man of the Match in Celtic’s heroic Champions League game against Barcelona this week and that will increase his value and the likelihood of a move to a bigger club and a better league.

Another wantaway midfielder linked with Arsenal

Ki Sung Yeung to Arsenal? by TS

Well it seems these next coming days will be riddled with Arsenal transfer rumors and the Gunners are once again being linked with anyone wanting a transfer. On our list today is the Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng who has told the club that he would like a move to the Premier League. Now with Sahin on his way, M’villa still in the cross hairs and Biglia on the fringes one has to wonder just how many midfielders the media thinks Arsenal need!
