What is Ramsey hinting about Arsenal and Wanyama?

Does Ramsey know something we don’t? by AH

Aaron Ramsey has been speaking to the media a lot recently about Arsenal’s ambitions and things going on at the club, but he also spoke about one player who has been consistently linked with the Gunners since the mid-season.
The player in question is Celtic’s Victor Wanyama, who is a midfielder with all-round qualities, although he acts best in a defensive midfield role. Wanyama has been linked with a number of top clubs across Europe, including a few in England alone, and out of all of them, Arsenal seem to be the most interested according to reports.

Arsenal must sign Big Vic Wanyama says former Gunner

When George Graham took over as the manager of Arsenal back in 1986, the first player he signed was the young left winger Perry Groves. Groves went on to become a fans favourite. The Londoner still has the club at his heart and often appears in the media to talk about them. Like all Gooners, Groves has his own ideas about what the Gunners need to do to push on from merely qualifying for the Champions League every season and like most Gooners he feels that a proper defensive midfielder should be one of the main transfer targets this summer.

Arsenal target Wanyama will not sign this summer

If there is an element of truth to all the transfer rumours you hear involving Arsenal, then Arsene Wenger’s list of targets must be as thick as the Yellow Pages. Well it looks like Le Prof can cross one of those names off his list today, as the talented and powerful defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed his intention of staying at Celtic.

21-year old Wanyama is a real powerhouse in the centre of the pitch and his performances this season, especially in the Champions League, have attracted a lot of interest. Both Arsenal and Manchester United have had scouts in Glasgow to watch him and it has been heavily rumoured that he would be moving on at the end of this season.

Arsenal could face competition for Capoue from QPR

We do not know if Arsenal tried to sign Etienne Capoue from Toulouse in January, but he could have been the player Arsene Wenger was referring to when he said that a club had rejected a late transfer window offer for one of the Arsenal targets. Toulouse had sold Sissoko to Newcastle, and would have been left very light in midfield if they had also sold Capoue.

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.
