£50m Superstar striker WANTS Arsenal move?

There is a very interesting Arsenal rumour doing the rounds today, as the Express has reported that the Uruguayan hitman Edison Cavani is pushing PSG to allow him to move to the Emirates.

The story says that Cavani is very keen on moving to London, and especially wants to work alongside Alexis Sanchez. Apparently he is trying to get his club to lower the asking price – to tempt Arsenal into making a bid. If this is true then Wenger really should sit up and take notice. The 27 year-old has a reported price tag of £50m and is said to have a salary bill of 10 million euros, (which as about the same as Arsene Wenger earns at the current exchange rate), but he has scored a very respectable 101 goals in his last 149 games which is not a bad rate of return, and he should be worth every penny.

Should Arsenal go back in for this £14m midfielder?

There were many Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with the French midfielder Yohan Cabaye, and it was even suggested that the Gunners had made a £12m offer for the Newcastle man, but the accomplished 28 year-old instead moved back to Ligue 1 with Paris St Germain for a reported price of more than £14 million to rejoin his old international boss Laurent Le Blanc.

Cavani to be sold but Arsenal will NOT attempt transfer

The Gunners have long been linked in numerous Arsenal transfer rumours with the Uruguay international striker Edinson Cavani. With all the money in the English Premier League and with Arsenal being one of the biggest and most financially solid clubs in it, we are bound to be linked with any top name transfers, but I don’t think there is any chance of this one happening.

Even though, according to a report in The Mirror, there is a good chance that Cavani will be leaving his current club PSG sooner rather than later. The striker has never really settle with the French champions since his £55 million move from Napoli last summer.

Roma rumour to push up price of Rabiot to Arsenal transfer?

If the number of Arsenal transfer rumours currently doing the rounds about the young Central midfielder Adrien Rabiot are anything to go by, there is certainly real interest from Arsene Wenger, despite the Frenchman refusing point blank to discuss him at the pre-match press conference.

Over the last few days, we have heard that Rabiot’s current club, French champions PSG, have slashed their asking price for the talented 19-year old, which has apparently caused Wenger to make his move. There has been a report about the central midfielder’s agent and mother arriving in London to finalise the deal, but then the latest reports, including one by Metro, suggests that the Gunners may face a late battle with Roma.

The best and worst that Arsenal could get in Champions League draw

After Arsenal survived the pressure and nerves of our hardest Champions League play-off encounter ever, with Slaven Bilic and his Besiktas team deserving an honourable mention for pushing us so close, we wait for the groups to be drawn later today.

It is really about time that Arsenal went one better than the first knockout round as well, so we are hoping for more luck than last year which saw us placed in the toughest group of all and then getting the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich for the second season in a row.

Will Cavani transfer complete the Arsenal title jigsaw?

According to some of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, Arsene Wenger is planning to make one more big splash in the summer transfer window, with a stunning swoop for the Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani. And if the Prof can pull this one off, I reckon it could be the final piece in the puzzle for the Gunners to become champions of England again.

The Uruguay international star is apparently unsettled in France and is keen on a move to the Premier League, with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Man United all interested. But according to a report in the Daily Star, Wenger thinks he can win the race for Cavani by offering the French champions our current front man Olivier Giroud plus a hefty cash balance of around £30 million.

Rabiot to Arsenal transfer boost as Blanc admits it’s out of his hands!!

Arsenal could be on the verge of completing the fifth transfer of the summer in the next few days. The player in question is the 19-year old central midfielder Adrien Rabiot who plays for PSG and the France under 21 international side.

Normally, with the amount of money available to them, getting a player from the French champions would only be possible for Arsenal if they were keen on selling, but it seems as though the FFP rules and sanctions from UEFA may be starting to bite on PSG a little bit, which may be why the manager Laurent Bland has revealed, in a Metro report, that there is little he can do to stop the club selling Rabiot.

Arsenal told to pay £24m for transfer target! Should we pay?

There have been some Arsenal transfer rumours over the last few days that suggested that the deal to bring the young French midfielder Adrien Rabiot from PSG to Arsenal was all but done and dusted. However, it now seems that this is not quite the case, because his current club are demanding much more than Arsene Wenger wanted to pay for their talented player.

Is Wenger REALLY happy with his Arsenal squad?

After leading Arsenal to an FA cup trophy after a long nine years with no silverware, along with a serious challenge for the title which just faltered as the injuries piled up, Arsene Wenger appeared to have fallen back in love with the game, as proven when he signed up to another three years at the helm of the good ship Arsenal.

After the barren years, there is no doubt that the Frenchman has major honours in his sights again, but the Premier League and Champions League are competitions that are even harder to win than ever these days, with clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Man City all able to outgun us in the transfer market.

Good news Arsenal as UEFA get tougher with FFP

Towards the end of last season, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger finally seemed to be vindicated over his financially stable way of running the Gunners. We heard that a number of clubs around Europe were set to face sanctions after breaking the Financial Fair Play rules, chief among them being Man City and PSG.

Great, we thought, now maybe these crazy transfer prices can calm down a bit and perhaps Arsenal could actually sign some of the players we wanted to without some other big time charlie coming along and outbidding us. But this feeling of optimism did not last long, as the Abu-Dhabi based owners of City, and the Qatari group in charge of PSG just carried on as if nothing had happened.

Could Arsenal capitalise on Cavani’s Man United snub?

It has been fun for Arsenal fans to watch the collapse of Man United since the scourge of Premier League referees that is Alex Ferguson stepped down from the manager’s job. But the club’s bosses are determined to stop the rot and are apparently going to give the new boss Louis van Gaal a king’s ransom to make sure that happens, but they are finding that money is not everything.

The player that van Gaal wanted to spearhead their resurgence was, according to reports, the Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani. And it was thought that the 27-year old was not very happy with his lack of opportunities and being played out of position at the French champions PSG would make him available to a decent United bid, but apparently not.

Have Arsenal turned to Benfica star after Benzema snub?

I must admit to being slightly underwhelmed by the latest Arsenal transfer rumour, as it has the Gunners moving from the established world class striker that is Karim Benzema, on to the relatively unproven but promising young forward called Rodrigo.

According to the Daily Star, Arsene Wenger is ready to offer around £24 million for the 23-year old striker who netted 18 times for his Portuguese side Benfica last season. That fee is not much more than it was supposed to cost to bring in Benzema from Real Madrid, but another report from the same paper claims that the French striker has rejected a move to the Premier League in favour of a return to France with the champions PSG.
