The THREE Twitter accounts that Arsenal Fans should follow for transfer rumours

Who to follow this summer for Arsenal transfer news? by AT

The window has just opened and the rumours are heating up with Arsenal in advanced talks with both Barcelona and Newcastle for Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy respectively. However, how do you know who to trust? Well I’m going to list three twitter accounts that you should follow for your Arsenal transfer news.

Have Arsenal fans had enough of Frimpong?

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who saw the comical side to Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong’s picture upload of his newly name engraved football boots, on social networking site Twitter. The boots which have ‘Frimpong’ etched into the stitches was the latest in a line of stories to arise about the young midfielder, and he seems to have the knack of hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons.

Hayden has overtaken Frimpong in race to Arsenal first team

After Emmanuel Frimpong survived a mass clear out by Arsenal of players who were surplus to requirements, it seemed like the Ghanaian born midfielder had a future with the club. When you consider that his playing position of defensive midfielder is one of the least well covered in the Arsenal squad, then this season promised a lot for the 21-year old.

Do Arsenal have two striker targets before Higuain?

Is Higuain really Arsenal’s third choice? by KJ

As the transfer window officially opens today for Europe, many Arsenal fans are expecting a big week or two from the club considering our pre-season tour starts in just 13 days. One of the biggest transfers that are seemingly close is that of Gonzalo Higuain.

However, according to a famous Spanish sports journalist, Kike Marin (@Kike_Marin_): “Higuain is the 3rd option to Arsenal, but i think that is the more easy. Arsenal is waiting.”

Podolski leaves no doubt that he is staying at Arsenal

To be fair to Lukas Podolski, he has never suggested that he is not happy at Arsenal, or given any sign that he wants to move to another club. On the contrary, he generally looks like he has been having the time of his life since joining the Gunners from Cologne last summer. If you don’t believe me, look on Arsenal.com at all the pictures from the training sessions. He looks as happy as a pig in a place where pigs are happy.

Have Arsenal made bid of £30m for Cavani?

Arsenal rumoured to have bid big for a player by Twig

According to rumours on Twitter, Arsenal have reportedly bid 30 million pounds for a player today. The story originated from the trusty GeofArsenal who has got some insider information on Arsenal correct in the past. Wenger has consistently said he would bid that much if he found the right player. His comments after the Swansea game show that Arsenal is indeed looking but that he would not mention names.

New Arsenal striker or elaborate hoax?

With the January transfer window looming, Arsenal are becoming linked with lots of players. The poor start to the season for the Gunners, and the statement by Ivan Gazidis that there was money available to Arsene Wenger means that speculation is rife about who will be coming to the Emirates in January. Rumours on Twitter this weekend said that Arsenal had agreed a deal with a young French striker to join from Lyon in January, but there is more than a slight whiff of rodent to the whole story.

Arsenal left back Gibbs out of England squad with thigh problem

Most Arsenal fans will be relieved that Kieran Gibbs will not be joining the England squad this week, as long as he is ready to play for the Gunners when they return to Premier league action against Norwich at Carrow Road on October 20th. The 23-year old must be cursing his luck, however, because he was in with a real chance of playing after the Ashley Cole and Twitter affair.

Twitter trouble for Arsenal youngster

Emmanuel Frimpong could be in deep doo-doo after getting involved with a Tottenham fan on his Twitter page. Frimpong responded to an abusive message with “Scum Yid.” Following the racism case involving John Terry and Anton Ferdinand and the Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole “choc ice” reference, Frimpong could not have picked a worse time.

There is a good chance that the football authorities will take the matter further, and Arsenal may come under pressure to discipline the young midfielder themselves. The 20-year old from Ghana cannot seem to get a break, having suffered cruciate ligament damages twice already during his fledgling career.

Arsenal close to signing Clint Dempsey?

Are Arsenal in for Clint Dempsey? by KJ

Twitter today has again exploded at the prospect of another transfer. An account more akin to an ITK announced that Arsenal were in talks with Clint Dempsey and all that’s left is for an official transfer bid to be made.

Here are the quotes from @sport_trend:

#ARSENAL‬: Clint Dempsey will choose Arsenal ahead of‪#Manchester‬‬ United & ‪#Chelsea‬‬ based on a guaranteed playing time, his agent confirmed

#ARSENAL‬: Dempsey’s agent had met with trio clubs on separate occasions before player made his decision. A bid & Fulham’s response next.

Van Persie to sign for Man City? The BBC says YES – The BBC says NO!

The RVP saga – it’s a rollercoaster for sure! by KJ

There has been some very interesting developments regarding the situation with our Dutch captain over the last 24 hours.

Yesterday evening, Ian McGarry from the BBC reported on Twitter that RVP had accepted a contract from Man City that offered £225k a week. The only thing left was the transfer fee with Arsenal.

The whole of the Twitter universe exploded and everyone was in a massive state of shock at the news.
