With Arsene Wenger admitting that his Arsenal squad was a bit light on the defensive side of things and suggesting that he may be adding to that area in the next week, there is some good news for the Gunners today, according to a report in The Express.
It appears that Arsene Wenger may not have been entirely honest last night, when he insisted that Arsenal were not really very close to signing any more players at the minute, when asked about his transfer plans after the battling draw with Besiktas in Istanbul.
Now that Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is looking for another centre-back after Thomas Vermaelen left Arsenal for Barcelona, it is no surprise that the papers are looking for new targets after it was revealed that Mats Hummels has been made captain at Dortmund so is definitely not available.
Joel Campbell still hopes to make it at Arsenal! by Ash
After watching Olympiakos against Manchester United last night I realised two major things. Firstly, one that does not come across as something shocking at all, is that Manchester United are currently in a bigger crisis than Arsenal have ever recently been in, despite not coming under the same level of media attention. And secondly what a very good player Joel Campbell has the potential to be.
Arsenal must take Joel Campbell back next year! by Ash
If you watched Manchester United’s game against Olympiakos last night, then I’m sure it probably had something to do with the fact an Arsenal player was on the pitch. Whilst one former Gunner Robin Van Persie led the line for Manchester United, Olympiakos had their own Arsenal striker up front, with Joel Campbell playing for the Greek side at Old Trafford, and it was the youngster that stole the show with an excellent goal as United were humbled.
The Arsenal boss will have to cross a couple of names of his transfer wish list for January, assuming that Arsene Wenger has such a thing, because two of the players that have been linked with a possible move to the Emirates stadium next month have just signed new extended contracts with their current clubs.
Just days after claiming that he is very unlikely to bring in attacking reinforcements in the upcoming January transfer window, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed his admiration for the Olympiakos front man Konstantinos Mitroglou, who is also being targeted by fellow Premier League side Liverpool.
Arsene Wenger saw his cobbled together team of reserves and misfits give a spirited display against Olympiakos in the first half of last nights match, but you could see that the lack of match fitness took its toll on the unusual Arsenal side in the second half.
