Arsenal will not be the only club whose fans will be hoping that they are the club referred to by the brilliant, prolific and always entertaining striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But you may as well save your excitement, Gooners, because it is not going to happen and I will explain why.
Arsenal finished last season in style and we have taken up where we left off, with four wins out of four in the pre-season games, despite the squad rotation and youth player additions. We have lots of promising youngsters and just about all the senior midfielders and strikers nicked a goal or two in our run.

It all seems just too good to be true, but if there is any truth in the old adage that ‘There is no smoke without fire’ then we can take it as a given that Petr Cech will be signing for Arsenal in the very near future. Apparently the rich Arabs at Paris St Germain were very keen to take the much-decorated Chelsea stopper, but they have told L’Equipe that they have given up the chase because Cech has already decided he moving to Arsenal!
Arsene Wenger has just been handed a massive boost to his hopes of signing the PSG and Uruguay international star Edinson Cavani in the summer transfer window, assuming that the powerful striker is actually on the Frenchman´s transfer wish list that is.
The Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has made it clear that he will be leaving Stamford Bridge this summer, and, according to a report in todays Mirror, he has decided that he DEFINITELY going to either Arsenal or Paris St Germain.
Maybe Arsene Wenger will not be looking at the summer transfer of Yohan Cabaye to Arsenal as a cut-price deal, but I am fairly sure that his current club Paris Saint-Germain will after they paid almost £20 million for the France international midfielder a little over a year ago.
Even if Arsenal made the funds available to him, I still have my doubts about whether Arsene Wenger would ever be willing to pay really top dollar for any player. But I don´t think we will ever get the chance to find out because, despite Arsenal Football Club being in a very healthy financial state, it still appears that the club is unwilling to compete with the big boys when it comes to spending money.
