Arsenal miss out on two midfield targets

The list of midfield targets seems to be getting dangerously small. Maybe Arsene Wenger is perfectly clear in his own mind about who he wants to join the Arsenal squad. I would like to see some positive action, however, before the options all evaporate.

Reports in the media today suggest that two of the midfielders linked with a move to the Emirates will not be Gunners next season. Alan Dzagoev will be staying at CSKA Moscow for at least one more season, while Tongo Doumbia is expected to sign for West Brom soon.

Which midfielder should Arsenal sign?

I am sick of talking or even thinking about strikers coming or going at Arsenal so I am going to have a look at the midfield and what is happening at the minute. I am also going to be optimistic and assume that Theo Walcott will stay and we will have plenty of attacking midfield quality.

Firstly, Arsenal and Sao Paulo have agreed a deal that will keep Denilson in Brazil for another season. Arsene Wenger had recalled the 24-year old Brazilian in order to sell him, but was unable to attract a buyer despite the measly £4 million price tag.

Well the press are having a field day with all of the Van Persie chaos. I think the media (just like most topics) are running it into the ground and pounding it into our eyes and ears so much that I really don’t want to discuss it anymore. Let’s not forget ourselves and get back to reality (and retain our sanity).

Seydou Doumbia keen on move to Champions League team

Arsenal target Seydou Doumbia has made it evident that his current season at CSKA Moscow is almost certain to be his last as the Ivory Coast international goes looking for Champions League football.

Having made a mockery of goal scoring records in Switzerland and Russia over the last few seasons, 24-year old Doumbia is desperate to prove his worth at the biggest stage. There is plenty of global interest in the man who hammered in 38 goals for his club this season, with clubs in Italy, Spain and England set to compete for his signature.

Arsenal look to the East for their latest targets

Arsene Wenger’s famous eye for talent has seemingly spread all the way to the far reaches of Eastern Europe with Arsenal be linked with some fine new attacking talents in Russia and Ukraine. The men in the spotlight are CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia and Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

Doumbia has been linked with a number of European clubs after declaring his interest to play in the Champions League and Arsenal have been encouraged in their pursuit after CSKA reportedly agreed to reduce their asking price to £15m. The Ivory Coast striker has traveled all across the globe, which includes spells in Japan and Switzerland and England could well be his next destination.

Arsenal and Chelsea fighting over prolific CSKA Moscow striker

After having been linked with a move to Chelsea all summer, Ivorian striker Seydou Doumbia has suddenly attracted interest from a different part of London, with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rumoured to be interested in signing the 24-year old.

Doumbia is an out and out goal scorer, having banged in goals for fun at every level, except surprisingly at the international stage where he has scored just 1 in 19 appearances for the Ivory Coast. With the national team front line often consisting of the former Chelsea duo of Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou, Doumbia has found a starting berth hard to come by for Côte d’Ivoire.

Arsenal chasing prolific Ivorian striker

At 23 years old Seydou Doumbia managed to impress many big clubs around the world with his skill and his very acute sense of goal.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Inter Milan were reported to be interested interested in the young striker in the last few years, and it is thought that he came close to signing for the Gunners before moving to Russia. Despite the big interest for him from different countries, Doumbia declared that his true dream is to play for a big Premier League team and that he will not stop fighting until it becomes true.
