All good official news from Arsenal as the club have announced that not only has Theo Walcott has signed his new contract extension (in a lot quicker time than the last saga) but also our little Spaniard Santi Cazorla has also put pen to paper, which should stop all those crazy rumours about him returning to Spain in the near future.
Arsene Wenger oversaw his side add another pre-season trophy with the Emirates Cup on Sunday. He then went on to confirm that the forward Theo Walcott, who incidentally was the goal scorer, is close to signing a new contract with the Gunners.
It is an excellent bit of Arsenal transfer news that Wenger is sending Wojciech Szczesny off to Roma for next season and hopefully keeping David Ospina as backup if (God forbid!) Petr Cech gets injured. This is the obvious solution for all concerned but admittedly many Gooners were worried that Szczesny would be retained while Ospina was going to sold.
Latest transfer reports coming out of Ajax talk about the possibility of the Dutch giants signing Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny. The Ajax director of football Marc Overmars has reportedly been in touch with the Gunners to find out about his availability.
Arsenal fans can thank our lucky stars that Arsene Wenger did make the decision to push ahead with the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea this summer, as long as the Czech Republic international goes on to prove that he is still one of the very best keepers in the Premier League and the world.
Arsenal Transfers: Emotion vs Ambition by BVR
Emotion (In My Opinion) is what is stopping Arsenal from buying the players who could really make THAT change and lead us to titles. My first case in point is the extension of Mikel Arteta’s contract. Yes, Arteta has been a great servant to the club. Immensely committed and loyal. But what does this mean? Are we not going to buy a DM?
It just seemed to be the perfect thing for Arsenal to do when the chance of signing Petr Cech popped up, and we are all very very happy with the outcome, but it has now given Arsene Wenger a massive problem.
Wojciech Szczesny was ‘lied to’ by his Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger over future, it was accused.. by Sridhar
The future of the Polish national goal keeper was in shambles following the transfer of Petr Cech from Chelsea. It is widely regarded that Cech is head and shoulders above Szczesny and so would be the first choice at the club.
