Now this is a very interesting conundrum for Arsene Wenger as he ponders who to put in the Arsenal goal for next Tuesday’s game against Wigan. Wojciech Szczesny was dropped for the Champions League game away at Bayern Munich after some inconsistent performances and was swiftly replaced by Lukasz Fabianski who went on to perform well in five wins in a row (conceding just three goals) before being cruelly injured against Norwich.
Should we should offer Fabianski a new contract! by AH
Lukas Fabianski is a player full of controversy! He has managed to not only divide the fans but he also has the ability to amaze fans one week and then make them as angry as possible the next.
The England winger Theo Walcott has arguably been one of Arsenal’s best performers this season when he has been given time on the pitch, but with the contract extension hanging over him like a dark cloud, has Wenger finally decided to take him out of the team completely.
Ivan Gazidis made it clear this week that Arsenal would not be giving in to Theo Walcott’s wage demands to persuade him to sign a contract extension, so it would seem that Arsene Wenger will need to cash in on the wannabe striker in January, but who is Wenger likely to replace him with?
£100k a week, for the player that scared the pants off Messi & Guardiola? by Paul N.
According to media sources, Arsenal Football Club is apparently struggling to close a deal with a certain player who Lionel Messi himself once quoted as “one of the most dangerous players I have ever played against”. It is rumored that the player is holding out for a salary of about £100k a week.
Fulham’s big defender brede Hangeland has been linked with Arsenal for many years, but since then Arsene Wenger has brought in Thomas Vermaelen (now captain), Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, leaving the Swiss Johan Djourou as the odd man out in a brilliant foursome, with many Arsenal fans begging Wenger to sell him this summer.
The Arsenal contract rebel Theo Walcott has not started a game for the Gunners since the beginning of this season with his contract negotiations at a stalemate, and Arsene Wenger has admitted that if the situation is not solved in the next two months then he will have to consider selling him on before his contract runs out.
The young Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has taken another big step by being included in the England sauad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers (ahead of Theo Walcott no less), and there has been talk of Arsenal offering him a new improved and extended contract to make sure he remains at the club for as long as possible.
