The Spanish striker Michu has had his rapid rise to stardom underlined with an international call-up to Spain, and there transfer rumours linking him with a possible move to Arsenal in January, but I nearly choked on my cornflakes when I saw the price tag being talked about as being around the £30 million mark.
Having cost just £2 million when Michael Laudrup signed him for Swansea City last summer, that fee would surely represent one of the biggest and fastest increases in value for a footballer ever. 1500 percent in a year!! Having said that, we already know that prices are crazy, especially for strikers and especially, it seems, if a big club is interested. According to The Express, Arsenal might have to fight Liverpool for his signature if we were to go for him in January. .......Read the full article here
As a few already wrote in their comments, last year’s home game against Swansea was the low point of the season for Arsenal. Not only did they defeat us on our turf, they defeated us at our own game too. We looked quite useless in that game, to tell you the truth. They were the surprise of the season and they managed not only to retain all of their main players (like our supposed target Michu), but also add new ones (Bony). They are, by all means, a worthy adversary, one not be taken lightly. .......Read the full article here
So here we are, 10 days left until the close of the transfer window and a new mammoth list of rumours linking us with players who in my eyes we will not get; Pogba, Fellaini, Michu, Guaita, Cabaye, Richards, Kondogbia, Lamela
Arsene says ”Who?” Let’s give him some help. by Neil
After the Arsenal vs. Villa debacle, of which I will not speak, it became clear to me that our manager needs some help. He said, and I quote ”Everyone keeps telling me to buy, but who..that is the question?”
Most gooners are in agreement that it is the spine of our team in need of additions. Perhaps a left back and left sided midfielder. Before I give my two cents, let’s look at the ships that sailed in the night. Let’s start with: .......Read the full article here
As Arsene Wenger has seen all his main transfer targets fall by the wayside, it seems that Arsenal will have no choice but to meet Swansea’s valuation of £25m for their Spanish striker Michu after just one good season in the Premiership.
The Gunners 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the season has caused such an outcry from the Arsenal faithful that Wenger will be subjected to serious abuse from the fans if he doesn’t spend a substantial part of the so-called £70m+ transfer fund in the next couple of weeks, and Michu seems like the only proven Premiership striker available that could calm down the irate supporters. .......Read the full article here
Premier League Club manager Michael Laudrup has closed the door on Arsenal’s transfer interest regarding Swansea City striker Michu, after it was reported in the media that Arsene Wenger would turn his attention to the Spanish danger man should the club’s final efforts for Luis Suarez be rejected. .......Read the full article here
Most of the popular newspapers in The Netherlands today are reporting that Arsenal are targeting two of PSV Eindhoven’s best players as the club rushes to sign some new players before the start of the new Premier League season.
We as Arsenal fans have seen a surge in new targets in the last week or so. We began with targeting the likes of Luis Suarez and Luiz Gustavo and have moved on to players such as Edin Dzeko, Michu and now Goerginio Wijnaldum and Zakaria Bakkali of the Dutch giants. .......Read the full article here
Yesterday morning Arsenal fans were greeted with fresh hope of signing a decent striker or two this summer. They are no Luis Suarez, but we have been linked with Swansea City’s Michu and Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko. I was getting worried when I faced up to the prospect of having Olivier Giroud, Yaya Sanogo, Nicklas Bendtner and Park Chu Young as our strike force for next season. Most of the four are target men type strikers too which worried me more. .......Read the full article here
Higuain to Arsenal looks gone; we can probably safely say that Suarez was never gonna happen (even though I’d love to see him at the Emirates, £40 million wired to the premier league team is just not Arsene’s thing. Rooney? Well, unfortunately it’s just us selling top players to competitors, they don’t do the same for us. Džekko would be nice, but again, Manchester City won’t sell him to us, even though they are filling in their strikers ranks daily. .......Read the full article here
We are feeding on crumbs at the minute, until Arsenal make another official announcement, but there are a lot of crumbs out there and many of them are about forward players. Of course, the Gunners have already got their hands on the promising young French striker Yaya Sanogo, but he has not exactly floated the boat of most Gooners. He is one for the future and I’m glad we’ve got him, but it is the already established strikers that we are interested in. .......Read the full article here
It seems that Arsenal are to make a shock move for Swansea City striker Michu who has been hailed as the transfer of the season after surprising Premier League fans with his 18 goal season which cost Swansea just £2 Million. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been secretly active in the transfer market so far this summer as the club have apparently been making bids for all kinds of players. .......Read the full article here
Filling the Van Persie Void Remains a Priority by DS
The degree to which Giroud has been successful has been heavily debated. When he first arrived at Arsenal I was not impressed – he was slow and cumbersome and nervous in front of goal. He found some form, however, and deserved his place in the starting lineup in Arsenal’s strong run at the end of the season. .......Read the full article here
