Podolski hints at Bundesliga return 1

Posted on April 24, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has revealed he is open to a return to German Bundesliga in the future, stating that he would like to enjoy a third spell with FC Koln, the club where it all started for him.

The Germany international hasn’t quite managed to make the desired impact in the English Premier League, although he is hardly the only one to blame, with Arsene Wenger often playing him out of position.

And despite enjoying a prolonged run in the side over the last few weeks, Podolski could still be leaving the Gunners at the end of the current campaign, with the player hinting at a return to German Bundesliga.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to end speculation over his future by signing a two-year contract extension and then spend big this summer strengthening his squad. The news that Wenger will sign a new contract may not come as a surprise, but Wenger spending big may surprise some Gunners fans.

Spending

Mr Wenger is notoriously careful with Arsenal’s money and almost treats the club chequebook like it his own. For most managers that would mean spending big and bringing in expensive new players, not Arsene though.

Latest media reports are suggesting that Arsenal have been handed a major boost in their attempts to tie down French defender Bacary Sagna to a new contract just when it was starting to appear the full-back will be leaving on free.

As you are all too aware, the 31-year-old is in the final year of his deal at the Emirates, and his representatives have been unable to agree terms on the contract extension despite having a number of meetings with club officials.

However, the latest reports have suggested that a new meeting has been scheduled, with Arsenal officials confident the two sides are closer than ever to reaching an agreement.

According to Goal.com, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger could leave the club if the Gunners do not achieve their season objectives of winning the FA Cup and finishing in the top-four of the Premier League.

Doubts

Arsenal’s recent slump from the top of the table to fourth has created doubts over the Frenchman’s future at the club. Embarrassing defeats against the likes of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have led to fans questioning the veteran’s future with the club.

According to Goal, it seems the 62-year-old could walk away from the club if the Gunners do not achieve their goals in the next month.

Posted on April 21, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Alex Kroes, agent of Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen, has confirmed Serie A side Napoli are one of many clubs looking into the possibility of signing the Belgian international.

‘Yes Napoli have been on the player and have stepped forward, but other clubs have also shown their interest and not just Italian clubs. We will postpone any discussions until after (the World Cup) then we will then consider any kind of offer regarding his future.’

Vermaelen, 28, has been on the periphery at Arsenal this season. The centre back has made just seven Premier League starts for the Gunners, but did make three league starts in a row – as cover for injured left-backs Kieran Gibbs & Nacho Monreal.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are looking into the possibility of signing Frankfurt defender Sebastian Jung. His agent confirmed the news of the Gunners’ interest, but also revealed a number of other sides have looked at him too.

“In England, we know Arsenal are very strongly on his trail for the summer,’ said Mino Grillo. “They have had scouts watching him in the Bundesliga. There is was interest in the past from Inter, Roma and Milan.”

Jung, 23, plays as a right-back for the German outfit. He’s made 27 league appearances this season – making an impressive six assists. A product of the Frankfurt academy, the defender made more than 160 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals.

Toulose defender Serge Aurier has spoken out against about his desire to play for Arsenal. The Ivorian right-back revealed he dreams of playing in the Premier League for Arsene Wenger’s side and is hoping such a move will present itself soon.

‘You cannot refuse Arsenal. It is certain that Arsenal is a dream. England is a championship where everyone would like to play there. It has a great atmosphere in the stadiums. This is the league that suits me the most, in terms of my commitment, my playing style.’

Santi Cazorla hints at Arsenal exit 2

Posted on April 09, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla has added fuel to speculations linking him with a summer move away from the club by admitting he could quit the Emirates if the club’s trophy drought continues.

What looked like a very promising season is quickly turning into an utter disappointment for the Gunners, with the team out of the title chase and no longer favourites for a top 4 finish in the Premier League.

And if they also fail to lift the FA Cup trophy this season, Arsenal could have a real battle on their hands to keep hold of their high-profile players, with Santi Cazorla the first one to admit he could leave in the future.

Arsenal interested in Real legend 0

Posted on April 09, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal midfield playmaker Santi Cazorla has revealed that the Gunners are interested in Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas. The veteran keeper is a Real Madrid and Spain legend after a trophy-laden career.

Out-of-favour

However, despite his status in Spanish football, Casillas has fallen out-of-favour with the Real management. The 32-year-old had to play second fiddle to Diego Lopez under Jose Mourinho last season and that situation has stayed the same under Carlo Ancelotti this season.

Casillas has been first choice keeper in Real Madrid’s games in the Champions League, but Lopez has been first choice in La Liga. His lack of La Liga action has led to speculation that he could leave the Bernabeu this summer.

Who would you like to see in the Arsenal dugout next season? 4

Posted on April 08, 2014 by David Nugent

Arsenal recent slump in form and boss Arsene Wenger’s contract situation has put the veteran French boss’ future in north London in doubt. I think most us know that he is too stubborn to quit and the Gunners board are very unlikely to fire him, but if he did leave Arsenal here are some of the likely candidates:

Roberto Martinez (Everton)

Fresh off the back of a 3-0 win over Arsenal and leading Everton to their highest points total in the Premier League era, the Spaniard is doing a fine job on a small budget on Merseyside. The 40-year-old is regarded as one of the European games brightest young up-and-coming coaches.
