Injury leaves Draxler to Arsenal transfer in ruins

According to recent Arsenal transfer rumours, the FC Schalke and Germany international star Julian Draxler was thought to be high on the list of potential signings for Arsene Wenger in the January transfer window that is fast approaching. But the exciting young player has suffered yet another injury setback.

The attacking midfielder only lasted 11 seconds of his club’s most recent Bundesliga game, a narrow home win over Augsburg on Friday evening. And the injury has been named as a pulled thigh muscle that will see him play no more part for Schalke or Germany for the rest of this year.

Why Marco Reus should be Arsenal’s next signing

The international break is almost over now and it was apparent how vital Özil is to Germany as they struggled massively against Poland and then the Republic of Ireland. But what was also apparent was how much they missed Marco Reus. The German was injured throughout the entire World Cup and it was fortunate that the team collectively managed to overcome that shortcoming as they went on to lift the greatest trophy in football. But now, his absence is clearly seen and it has been costing them and will continue to cost them. Why is that? It’s because he’s one of the best wide players in Europe.

Stop Kagawa and Arsenal WILL beat Borussia Dortmund

When we watched with baited breath to see who Arsenal would be playing in the group stages of the Champions League this season, all of the softer looking sides got put into other groups and the Gunners got another tough draw. But I am now starting to think that we may have got a bit of luck after all.

Anderlecht are the Belgian champions and you should not take any team that has made it into the group stages too lightly, but they should be the whipping boys. Galatasaray are the biggest club in Turkey and have done well in Europe recently, but there are signs that they are not so good this year.

Wilshere – Arsenal must not lose at Dortmund

The Gunners have a daunting fixture list for the rest of this month, and its a shame we couldn’t start by taking three points of Man City, but to look on the bright side Arsenal are still unbeaten this season.

Jack Wilshere is adamant that this run should remain intact when Arsenal travel to Dortmund on Tuesday in the first of the Champions League Group Stage. “They’re always good games when we face them,” he said on Arsenal.com. “It’s a tough game and we go there first this time, so the hardest match of the group will be the first one.

Can Arsenal make most of Man City and Dortmund troubles?

After a steady but far from brilliant start to the season, Arsenal really need to get going after this international break. But our next two fixtures could not be harder, on paper anyway, with Man City coming to the Emirates on Saturday and the Gunners off to face Borussia Dortmund in Germany just three days later.

But Arsenal have reason for confidence in both games. Neither of these big hitters has really shone yet this season either, and they each lost one of their main players to injury this week, so can Arsene Wenger and his players take advantage?

Dortmund’s Marco Reus to miss big Arsenal clash

Normally Arsenal fans are used to getting extra injuries when there is an international break, but just for once it seems the tables have turned in our favour.

The Gunners have a daunting opening Champions League game away at Borussia Dortmund in eight days time, but we have been given a boost by the fact that Marco Reus has sustained an ankle injury in Germany’s 2-1 win over Scotland last night, and is now likely to miss the match against Arsenal.

Real Madrid likely to snatch Arsenal’s long-term target?

Some reports in Spain claim that Real Madrid have a deal in place with Borussia Dortmund, that gives the club first-hand information on any bids made for German superstar, Marco Reus.

This means that should Arsenal bid for the midfield maestro, Real Madrid would be notified of the situation. If a team was to have a bid accepted for Reus, Los Blancos would have the option of matching the bid and given the first chance to talk to the player directly about a move.

Why Arsenal SHOULD get Marco Reus

The Possible Answer for LW/ST? by AndrewAB

As many others have stated, LW/ST seems to be a real area of concern for Arsenal fans. I don’t think Jack or Santi are the answer for left wing & as good a job as Giroud does he doesn’t inspire the front line of a title winning side. The solution I pose is Marco Reus. Based on other posts across the site I don’t think I need to convince anyone that he’d be a fantastic signing but more importantly I think he could be exactly what we need at the moment.

Which of the striker targets do Arsenal really need?

What Striker should Arsenal be looking to sign this season? by CJ

The Arsenal transfer rumours that usually circle around the Emirates at this time of year seem to be entirely focused on our supposed pursuit of big name strikers, just like every year we are being linked to every player under the sun. However this post will focus on the strikers we seem to be constantly linked with, Mario Mandzukic, Mario Balotelli, Karim Benzema and Loic Remy.

The 3 players Arsenal MUST sign this summer!

What positions do we need to improve over the summer? by KJ

The defeat on Saturday has made me question the strength of the Arsenal team against those that are supposedly at a similar level to us. We have been thrashed three times away from home vs the best teams in the Premier league and it has all happened in the exact same way. I don’t think Wenger will change it tactically at all to deal with such teams. He’s always stuck by the philosophy of outplaying the opposition rather than tactically analysing them and searching for their weaknesses and strengths. This was fine during the earlier parts of Wenger’s era but now with a considerably weaker team, we need to improve the squad to cope with Wenger’s philosophy.

Arsenal striker options – Is Balotelli the best choice?

Can’t believe I’m saying this- let’s get Ballotelli By- Gunner Gyzinermouth

As the Arsenal transfer season is upon us, speculation and sensationalism are in the air. I too get caught up in considering what I would do were I in Arsene Wenger’s shoes. Now I’m not suggesting that I have the tactical acumen Wenger does, but my Arsenal team is unbeaten in 2 years with Football manager so I must be almost there right?!? Do we get a big name now (are there any available) or do we wait until summer when there are more options? Do we buy a short term solution now and hope to offload him in the summer when we buy a top top top striker? Do we seek a loan?

Is £16m Cerci the man to complete Arsenal attack?

Amidst rumours of Arsenal’s reported interest in a number of elite wide forward men across Europe which include the likes of Marco Reus and Pedro Rodriguez, there is also yet another transfer possibility that has been gaining credibility for quite some time now. Reports have emerged linking Arsenal and Premier League rivals Manchester United with a move for Torino’s influential winger Alessio Cerci, with Serie A champions Juventus apparently also very keen.
