Arsenal have been beaten to the signature of the 18-year old midfielder, Kingsley Coman, by the Serie A club Juventus. The teenager is so highly thought of that the likes of Bayern Munich were also keen on taking him after he decided to leave the French champions PSG, in order to secure more regular playing time.
In the next few years, Arsene Wenger could be kicking himself for missing out on this star of the future, especially when you hear the young Frenchman’s reasons for choosing the Italian club. A Daily Mail report reveals that it was the fact that Juventus have a strong history of having French players in their team. .......Read the full article here
I wish that Arsene Wenger would hurry up and seal the deal to bring Alexis Sanchez to Arsenal, because the longer the talks go on without a concrete resolution, the more chance there is of it turning into another Gonzalo Higuain situation. And media reports suggest that both of our Premier League rivals from Manchester could be the ones to leave Arsenal empty handed.
If it is the matter of a fee, with Wenger trying to squeeze an extra few million for Arsenal out of the deal, it could all go wrong, especially now that the Daily Star is reporting that Man City are interested in the Barcelona and Chile striker. And they are willing to go as high as £40 million for him. .......Read the full article here
There have been a number of Arsenal transfer rumours lately concerning a stunning move from the Gunners for the Juventus and Chile midfield general Arturo Vidal. Arsene Wenger waxed lyrical about the 27-year old and some of the media reckon that is a precursor to a huge bid from Arsenal. especially now that Chile are out of the World Cup finals.
Some rumours had already suggested that Man United had made a bid of around £30 million to the Italian champions, who are so keen to keep their other central midfielder Paul Pogba, that they may agree to let the Chilean go for the right price. .......Read the full article here
The World Cup has entered it’s second phase. For Arsenal fans starved of seeing their Gunners playing every week, it is great to have some top quality football action to watch, and when there are Arsenal players or transfer targets involved, it gives us an extra interest in the games.
But I am still hoping that the home nation of Brazil go through to the quarter finals at the expense of Chile tonight, for purely selfish reasons. Chile have been fantastic and were unlucky not to win their group after dominating most of the deciding game against Holland, while Brazil were very lucky in their first game against Croatia and Fred’s dive for the crucial penalty was just embarrassing. .......Read the full article here
With pictures and video in the media yesterday of Arsene Wenger chilling out on the beach in Brazil, some Arsenal fans have reacted by wondering just what the Frenchman is doing in the summer transfer window.
With plenty of other teams in the Premier League and around Europe moving to seal early deals for the players they want, Arsenal are doing their usual impression of a sleeping dragon, like Smaug in the Hobbit films, slumbering on a massive pile of treasure. .......Read the full article here
For some players, the World Cup finals is a great shop window for their talents and a springboard to a top transfer. Arsenal are not usually one of the clubs that chases the latest new kid on the block because of a few good games, but there is no doubt that Wenger will be watching all of the games closely, whether for new targets or to check on those he already has in mind. .......Read the full article here
One of the main subjects of Arsenal transfer news this summer has involved the Gunners’ search for the right player to fill that defensive midfield role. Assuming, of course, that Arsene Wenger has realised that Arsenal cannot carry on with just Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini next season, not if we want to win the Premier League title anyway.
Surely those painful heavy defeats against our big rivals will have left the boss in no doubt, although I still think he will go for a player with technical ability rather than just a beast who will break up play. The two players who I think would provide this all-round game best, apart from Paul Pogba who I think is out of our league, are Sami Khedira and Arturo Vidal. .......Read the full article here
£20 million is certainly within the transfer budget of Arsenal this summer and, although it would be the second highest fee that Arsene Wenger had ever paid, it would seem pretty cheap for a top class striker like Alexis Sanchez.
But, according to a report in The Mirror, that is the price we are looking at for the Barcelona and Chile front man. But it is not the money that will make it hard to sign the talented forward, because Italian champions Juventus are very keen to sign him and have already started to negotiate with the player and his current club. .......Read the full article here
One of the big transfer rumours doing the rounds about Arsenal in January concerned the Ju8ventus and Montenegro striker Mirko Vucinic. If the stories were true, Arsene Wenger was trying to get the 30-year old on loan until the end of the season, in order to help boost the injury depleted Gunners squad, especially after Theo Walcott was ruled out for six months. .......Read the full article here
Giroud won’t be on his way out according to agent! by Ash
Over the past week reports have suggested that after Arsenal’s demolition day at Stamford Bridge, in which we lost 6-0 to Chelsea, Giroud was consequently heading for the transfer list. The big Frenchman was blamed for his tame effort in the early stages of the game and since that moment it got worse and worse for the Gunners. It’s wrong to blame just one player for the defeat and although the team did very poor defensively, Giroud offered us absolutely nothing in attack. .......Read the full article here
Ever since the beginning of this January window, Arsenal have been linked with out of favour Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic. The Montenegrin international is failing to get the game time he wants with Llorente and Tevez the preferred choice. The rumours are becoming stronger as the window draws to a close, and today there are unconfirmed reports from Italy, according to Eurosport that he will be in London today for his Gunners medical. But is this loan deal for Vucinic really the right option for the club? .......Read the full article here
One of the recent transfer rumours concerning Arsenal was at least for a striker, even if a 30-year old who has not exactly been prolific and has pretty much lost his place in the Juventus side this season had hardly set Gooners’ hearts racing.
But even the deal for Mirko Vucinic seemed to be dead in the water after the Italian champions seemed to have all but agreed a straight swap with their Serie A rivals for midfielder Fredy Guarin, reportedly a target for Chelsea. Inter have now pulled out of the deal, as reported by Metro. They have released some long-winded explanation, citing FFP rules and other confusing reasons, but it is more likely that a fans’ backlash was the real reason, as the Inter faithful thought they would be getting the worst of the deal. .......Read the full article here
