Arsenal Rumour Mill – Man United battle? Two French deals? Jenkinson out?

There have been a few rumours about today which may or may not be confirmed in the near future surrounding Arsenal Football Club.

Reports coming out of France moved to claim that new contracts had been signed by two of our key players, with Francis Coquelin and Olivier Giroud said to have extended their stays in North London.

The striker was claimed to have agreed a new deal until 2019, while our anchor-man was said to have signed a new four-and-a-half year contract which would see him stay until 2021.

The same outlet then followed that with ‘news’ that another Frenchman in Laurent Koscielny was also in advanced talks which could see him extend his deal until 2020.

We are yet to find out how genuine these reports really are, but there were also recent claims that Giroud could potentially return to France with Marseille interested, but his agent has already replied that he would not move in the coming window.

Jenkinson has disappeared from the playing squad in recent weeks, shortly after being installed in Wenger’s first-team plans in the absence of Bellerin. He is now said to be a target for Aston Villa, with Steve Bruce looking to strengthen next month in a bid to climb back into contention for promotion back to the Premier League.

One player who is speculated as a potential target for us next month is Porto winger Yacine Brahimi. The 26 year-old has been highly rated across Europe for some time now, and finally appears ready to move on. Manchester United are also reported to be keen.

  1. Sam, need a striker says:

    Giroud should be sold and replaced … Sanchez, Ozil, Koscielny, Coquelin, and Cazorla those who deserve new contracts …
    Need to buy either a top ST or a top LW/RW …
    Walcott, Ox are just too inconsistent to rely on … Giroud is a bench player at best …

    Surprised not much comments after a defeat.

  3. Gooner4G says:

    Giroud is not a key Arsenal player, if Welbeck cannot stay fit then another striker is needed. Giroud & Perez are below what we need. Otherwise the trophy drought will continue
