For any Arsenal fans that do not keep up to speed on the goings on in Spain’s La Liga, you may not have heard of the Celta Vigo and Spain international forward Nolito, real name Manuel Agudo Duran. If so I would advise you to have a look at him over the next couple of weeks because the absence of Chelsea’s thuggish striker Diego Costa from the squad should see him start for Spain. And according to a report in The Mirror, Arsenal are weighing up a transfer move for him.
I am not too sure what the Arsenal and Spain international midfielder Santi Cazorla has to smile about at the minute. The 29-year old ballooned a couple of great chances to get his scoring off the mark against Sunderland miles over the bar.
What can Arsenal learn from Chile’s performance against Spain? by Alex
At the time of writing this Spain have just lost to Chile 2-0, which has got me wondering. How has this little nation from South America managed to keep out a very talented Spain side for 90 minutes?
Considering that Arsenal are supposedly intending to invest hundreds of millions in the transfer market this summer, it is a little disconcerting to find that the talented Spaniard Santi Cazorla could be interested in listening to offers after the World Cup ends in Brazil.
Of all the Arsenal players involved in this frustrating international break, the two involved with the reigning World Cup and Euro champions Spain have the longest to travel. For some strange reason, Spain’s governing body have decided to go to Africa where they played against Equatorial Guinea yesterday.
There has been a lot of talk about international players this season, which is perfectly normal in the run up to the World Cup, with speculation about lots of Arsenal players, especially those like Thomas Vermaelen and whether they might be looking to move on to get regular game time to boost their chances of going to Brazil next summer.
Monreal may not stick around! by Ash
For the first time arguably since the days of Ashley Cole’s time at the club, Arsenal have managed to find a top quality left back in Kieran Gibbs. Gibbs has been in great form so far this season and in fact he has been praised for his performances over the course f the last few seasons, getting better game by game, however how can we forget that we also have another left back on the books in Nacho Monreal.
Something has got to give at Arsenal. Arsene Wenger really does not like the January transfer window, but Olivier Giroud cannot play every minute of every game this season. So the smart thinking is that the boss is going to have to sign someone in January, but we have heard many times from the Frenchman that he only wants to sign top class players.
