Arsenal transfer rumour round-up – Meyer, Zivkovic, Allegri, Wilshere, Bellerin

The international break means a ramp up in the gossip mill, and there is plenty of talk about Arsenal’s summer speculation.

We are linked with a move to try and sign Massimiliano Allegri from Juventus this summer, with Arsene Wenger continually being linked with the exit door. His current side are unconcerned about the interest however, and they seem to insist that their club is too important to be snubbed in favour of ours. Wenger of course has another year on his contract, but reports linking him with an exit will continue for as long as he stays in the role.

The Italian’s also appear to have played down links between themselves and Jack Wilshere’s signature, naming Emre Can as their preferred capture.

Hector Bellerin is also believed to be on Juve’s wishlist, but Manchester United are claimed to have made an enquiry about his availability. The Italian’s remain favourites despite the Red Devils interest.

We could also be set to battle it out with United over the capture of Andrija Zivkovic who is currently starring for Benfica. We have been following him since his time with Partizan Belgrade, and seem ready to make the jump to bring him to the Emirates this summer.

We are also said to be eyeing a move to sign Max Meyer from Schalke, with the 22 year-old out of contract at the end of the season. The deep-lying midfielder has a whole host of potential and ability, but would have Aaron Ramsey and Wilshere to vie with for action. Liverpool are also linked and we could well overlook him if we tie both the above to new contracts.

Can you see any truth in these rumours? Is Meyer an exciting target or a confusing one? Would Allegri be tempted to quit Juve for us?

    Prepare yourself for a very shite and depressing summer…

  2. Counsel says:

    The spurs will finish above us and are likely to win the FA cup and that will be the cause for necessary changes at arsenal.The club needs to bring at least two big name players and we are good to go

    1. GB says:

      Hopefully Sanchez will come good and Man U will thrash spurs at their “home” ground, Southampton will beat Chelsea and then beat MU and lift the cup. I can dream can’t I?

      1. Sue says:

        I’m with you on that… come on you saints! Can’t stand the other 3 teams!!

  3. JustJoy says:

    everything will remain the same with Asene Wenger in charge.
    wenger a god created by kronky sadddddddd.

  4. Sue says:

    I’m quite excited about the future….. bringing in a new manager. I think Allegri is the type of manager the board will go for. I would like Simeone, closely followed by Allegri after seeing how he did against the spuds! Hopefully we’ll have a good summer, bringing some more players in that we’re desperately in need of! Cb, gk & dm!!

    1. GB says:

      Agree Sue??

      1. Tas says:

        As long as it’s not Manchini

        1. Yossarian says:

          Or Brendan Rogers!

  5. ks-gunner says:

    First of all we need to make sure to get rid of the old fart. After him being gone the new manager can then make future plans and adjust the team how he sees fit. Till then. Prayers should be deticated only towards Wengers exit. Lets wait and see.

  6. Innit says:

    I hope we do transfer business with Juventus this summer like
    Trade Wenger, Kroenke and Iwobi plus cash for Allegri and Agnelli (owner)

    Wouldn’t mind Benatia, Sandro, Pjanic and Dybala either.

    1. AndersS says:

      yeah, wonder how much they want for taking Wenger. I am sure it would break our transfer record.

      1. Yossarian says:

        Lol… We’d never sell Wenger… Nobody would match his wages. Same problem we’ve had with all our dead-wood.

  7. kelvondo says:

    Wenger out.bellerin out.wilhere out

    1. Tas says:

      Why Wilshere??

      1. antonioro says:

        Because is mediocre and overrated…

        1. Ozziegunner@Newcastle upon Hunter says:

          Max Meyer is a great prospect and would suit Arsenal’s style of play, if he can be acquired at a reasonable cost (given he is out of contract with Shalke). He has the potential to take on the Cazola role as a deep lying midfield playmaker.
