Should Wenger bring Toure back to Arsenal?

Could Kolo Toure be on his way back to Arsenal on a one year deal? by SS

He is going to be out of contract this summer and he and Manchester City have confirmed that there will be no new deal. He has said he would like to stay in England because his family is based here and he could be available on low wages compared to his Man City pay packet.

Arsenal’s Verminator-Will he be back?

Thomas Vermaelen has played just once for Arsenal since the devastating derby defeat at Tottenham, and that was only because Per Mertesacker was suspended for the Norwich game. At least the Belgian international has not fallen so far in Arsene Wenger’s estimation that Sebastien `the squid` Squillachi was preferred to him, but there is a growing belief in the football media that Vermaelen could be sold during this summer’s transfer window.

Will Wenger bring Djourou back to Arsenal?

Johan Djourou has once again stated his desire to stay in Germany with the Bundesliga club Hannover, as he is plasying regularly and getting back into form, following ten league starts since moving on loan from the Gunners in January. Arsene Wenger had seemed reluctant to let him go, telling the 26-year old last summer that there was a place for him in the team to keep him at the Emirates.

Arsenal transfer rumour- the Return of Vela??

It would be the strangest Arsenal transfer move for quite a while if one of the players to be signed in the summer was Carlos Vela. The 23-year old Mexican striker spent most of his time out on loan after signing for the Gunners back in 2005. Until Wenger finally let him go permanently to Real Sociedad last summer, Vela had played just 62 times for Arsenal, most of them being in cup competitions, scoring just 11 goals.

Arsenal to smash wage structure for summer signings

All of the talk and information coming out of Arsenal Football Club suggests that the days of scrimping and saving to pay off the Emirates Stadium are over. The latest financial figures show a big cash reserve and good profitability, with new sponsorship money on the way. It is not just the money to be able to compete with the big spenders over transfer fees that has seen Arsenal lose it’s best players and miss out on big name signings, however. The current wage structure at the club falls way short of what top players are earning, but that too is going to be torn up, apparently, so we really should be able to compete.
