Seems like a strange move

There is plenty of commotion currently at Arsenal with Serge Gnabry being linked with a shock move to Bayern Munich, Calum Chambers already loaned out to Middlesbrough and injury-laden midfielder Jack Wilshere possibly moving out for a loan deal himself.

Another departure from Arsenal is on the cards before the curtain falls on the summer transfer market with Bolton Wanderers targeting Gideon Zelalem, according to ESPN FC sources.

Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry is reportedly set to join German giants Bayern Munich, Sky Germany has moved to suggest.

The Gunners were hoping to extend the player’s deal before sending him out on loan, but it looks as though the talented footballer is now set for a permanent move away from the Emirates.

According to reports, Gnabry will be sold to Bayern Munich before the transfer window closes and will then be immediately loaned to Werder Bremen.

The news will not go down well with Arsenal fans after the 21-year-old impressed playing for Germany at the 2016 Summer Olympics, where he bagged six goals in as many appearances.

Will Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere really be loaned out this season? 0

Speculation surrounding Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has sent social media in a frenzy on Monday evening, with reports that the England international will be loaned out for the season due to the stiff competition in the Gunners side. Wilshere was recently omitted from the England squad with manager Sam Allardyce says the playmaker needs regular game time to force his way back in.

But with the likes of Granit Xhaka, Santi Cazorla, Mohamed Elneny, Francis Coquelin and Aaron Ramsey currently ahead of him in the pecking order, Wilshere has little chance of getting minutes in an Arsenal shirt. The 24-year-old has played such little football for the Gunners in recent seasons, amassing a paltry 141 minutes in the Premier League in 2015/16.

Granit Xhaka settling in quickly at Arsenal 0

Arsenal new-boy Granit Xhaka drew plaudits after an assured performance in Saturday’s 3-1 win away to Watford, and the former Borussia Monchengladbach man looks to have settled in the Premier League now he’s being afforded consecutive starts in the first-team.

The 23-year-old has made three Premier League appearances for the Gunners this season, averaging a tackle or interception every 14 minutes so far. Xhaka’s impressive range of passing has been praised too, with the Swiss international having made 22 attempted long-range balls for Arsenal so far.

Calum Chambers loaned to Middlesbrough 0

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers will be joining Middlesbrough on a season-long loan, according to the latest reports, and the news has been well received by the supporters.

The English starlet was going to have a tough task of securing regular playing time at the Emirates following the capture of Shkodran Mustafi, especially with summer recruit Rob Holding also in front of him in the pecking order.

And seeing as how Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker will eventually recover from injury, everybody at the club was happy to see Chambers join Aitor Karanka’s high-flying side.

Jack Wilshere didn’t deserve a place in the England squad 0

England boss Sam Allardyce announced his Three Lions squad to face Slovakia on Sunday in a World Cup qualifier, with Allardyce’s side odds of evens to claim victory in the new boss’s first outing as national team boss.

There were a few surprises like Everton’s Ross Barkley, who has made a decent start to the campaign. One of the other surprise omissions was that of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Maybe it was not a surprise

Okay so maybe it should not have been such a surprise. The central midfielder has made just two substitute appearances for the Gunners this season, amounting to just 37 minutes in total of action.

Theo Walcott’s early season form earns him an England call-up 0

Posted on August 28, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal winger Theo Walcott has been recalled to the England national team by new manager Sam Allardyce ahead of the Three Lions’ World Cup qualifier against Slovakia next month. The former Southampton man has impressed early on this season for Arsenal and has been rewarded with a call-up that could see him make only his second England appearance since September 2015.

Walcott was omitted from the Euro 2016 squad this summer but has worked hard to hit form straight away in 2015/16. The 27-year-old has no distractions in pre-season as he wasn’t playing international football, and he will be hoping he can finally go a season without a major setback. Walcott has been blighted with injuries during his 10 years for club and country, but England manager Sam Allardyce feels he’s still worth the gamble.

Santi Cazorla impressing early on for Arsenal 0

Posted on August 28, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla scored in his side’s 3-1 win against Watford on the weekend, and has been starting the new Premier League season strongly with a series of convincing performances. The Spanish international has scored and created three goals in as many league games so far, and could be key for the Gunners if he stays free of serious injury.

Manager Arsene Wenger moved Cazorla back into a deep-lying midfield role alongside new-boy Granit Xhaka, while Mesut Ozil started in the central attacking-midfield position. The trio were highly effective dominating possession and creating numerous chances for the forwards, and Cazorla managed to get himself on the scoresheet for good measure.

Positivity for Arsenal heading into international break 0

Posted on August 28, 2016 by David Nugent

This summer has been all doom and gloom at Arsenal, as the lack of transfer activity has dominated the club and the fans minds. However, the actions of the last few days may just take the Gunners into the international break on a more positive note.

Firstly according to reports Arsenal are close to sealing the double signings of German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi and Spanish striker Lucas Perez. Then there was a very decent 3-1 win at Watford to celebrate.
