Arsenal have been enjoying a great pre-season so far, with a 100 percent record on the tour of Asia and plenty of good performances and goals. The preparations take a step up this weekend with the Emirates cup games against Napoli and Galatasaray, which should give us a much better idea of what shape the Gunners are really in as the Premier League season gets close.
What has happened to Gervinho at Arsenal? by SS
The first time I saw Gervinho play was in the 2010 world cup for the Ivory Coast. Every time he had the ball, the crowd would go wild because of his amazing ability to get past any man who stood in his way. He has fast footwork like we see from Cristiano Ronaldo and he could actually score goals.
Is Sagna’s time up at Arsenal? by AH
I had to do a double take when I saw this story in the newspaper this morning, then I checked the date to see if it was April Fool’s Day, although that does not necessarily the story true. Apparently, the Turkish champions Galatasaray want to sign the Arsenal and Ivory Coast forward Gervinho in the summer, and they are willing to pay £12 million for the privilege.
Many Arsenal fans were extremely surprised when the Gunners supersub (and cult hero) Emmanuel Eboue announced that he was moving to Turkey with Galatasary last summer.
When Sagna was out injured not too long ago, Arsenal have since been suffering in the right back position. Bacary Sagna has been an extremely important part to the Arsenal backline, his backup will also be essential as seen in recent matches where Arsenal look rather vulnerable on the right. So the question comes, should we have let Emmanuel Eboue the party animal to leave the club?
Emmauel Eboue was a cult hero for the Gooners. Naturally, it was shocking to hear of the news that he had left the club for Galatasaray. Arsene Wenger was no slouch either, signing Carl Jenkinson in response to the Ivorian’s departure.
It is being reported today that Arsenal have agreed a £4m fee with the Turkish giants Galatasary for the 28 year-old defender Emmanuel Eboue, and he is leaving with Arsene Wenger’s blessing.
