Arsenal want Wanyama- Song can whistle

There was a time earlier in the season, shortly after Arsenal were knocked out of the Capital One cup by Bradford I think, when Arsene Wenger was getting flak from all sides. He had not publicly condemned the players, like Gervinho, that had played so poorly and been criticised for it. Martin Keown explained that Wenger was fiercely loyal to his players, right up to the point when he felt really let down, and then they would find it impossible to get back in his good books.

Celtic admit they will struggle to keep Arsenal target Wanyama

Victor Wanyama is one of the players linked with a summer transfer to Arsenal to fill the troublesome position of defensive midfielder, and his manager at Celtic, Neil Lennon, admitted that they are not too confident of being able to keep the 21-year old at Parkhead for another season. The manager was speaking after Celtic went out of the Champions League following defeat by Juventus last night.

“That’s going to be very difficult,” said Lennon.

“I think some of them want to progress their careers, maybe outside of Scotland. It’s difficult to stop that progression.

Arsenal could soon have Bendtner back!! Is Giroud better?

After losing three of the last four games, it is no wonder that Arsenal fans are unhappy and looking for somebody to blame. The defence has been the main target, mainly due to the soft nature of the goals that have been conceded, but the Gunners have been struggling at the other end as well. Olivier Giroud is coming under fire again, with some JustArsenal readers even commenting that they would prefer to have Bendtner back. Well it looks like they may soon get their wish.

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.
