Arsenal could sell Podolski but not Campbell 1

Posted on August 21, 2014 by David Nugent

According to the Sun, Arsenal is willing to allow Galatasaray to sign German World Cup winner Lukas Podolski, but will not allow Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell to join the Turkish side in a double £22million deal.

Competition

Both players now face stiff competition for a place in the team this season, especially with the summer arrival of Chilean star Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona. It seems that Podolski has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates.

Cameroon star Alex Song is the latest player to be linked with a return to the Emirates as the Gunners are reportedly open to a possibility of signing their former midfield general.

A number of media outlets has reported that Barcelona has made the experienced footballer available for loan, with several Premier League sides believed to have taken notice.

Arsenal are thought to be one of the teams showing interest in Alex Song as Arsene Wenger remains a big fan of the player who enjoyed a very successful career in North London.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for former midfielder Cesc Fabregas this summer, but the Spaniard revealed manager Arsene Wenger pulled out of the deal because Mesut Ozil could play his role. However, was he really thinking of Aaron Ramsey?

The Welsh international has been Arsenal best midfielder for the last 12 months due to his scoring and creating antics in the middle of the park. He scored 10 goals and made eight assists in 23 Premier League games last season.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal has competition on their hands if they are looking to sign Greek international centre-back Kostas Manolas. The Gunners have been heavily linked with a £8million bid for the Olympiakos star.

Impressed

The 23-year-old produced some commanding performances for his national side as they made it through to the last-16 of the World Cup. His performances have raised his profile among European clubs attempting to sign a solid centre-back at a decent price.

Kostas Manolas on Arsene Wenger’s radar 0

As Arsenal are currently thin on options at the heart of their defence following Thomas Vermaelen’s sale, Greek defender Kostas Manolas is a target for the Londoners this summer.

Manager Arsene Wenger signed Southampton right-back Calum Chambers, who can play centre-back too, but he’s the only cover option for the side.

With the fitness of Laurent Koscielny currently a worry, Arsenal are in need of at least one more defensive recruit, especially considering Per Mertesacker may miss the season opener as Wenger is resting him following his World Cup showings.

Arsenal could be making a move on Olympiakos defender Konstatinos ‘Kostas’ Manolas as they look to sign a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, Tutto Mercato has suggested.

In spite of the impressive showing of summer signing Calum Chambers in the Community Shield match against Manchester City, Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is in the market for a new central defender.

And with the player likely to serve as a back-up to Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, there won’t be too many high-profile players willing to join the ranks at the Emirates.

Posted on August 11, 2014 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Serge Gnabry could be sent out on loan before the summer transfer window shuts. The young winger is highly-rated at the Emirates Stadium and is unlikely to be allowed to leave on a permanent basis.

Attention

Gnabry showed promise in his limited first team appearances last season and at 19-year-old looks to have plenty of potential. His appearances are believed to have been enough to attract the attention of Premier League trio Crystal Palace, Southampton and Newcastle.

Newcastle Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle Football Club are ready to make a move on Arsenal starlet Joel Campbell as they look to add the Costa Rican to the long list of summer signings.

The Magpies have been very active in the summer transfer window, having already recruited the likes of Jack Colback, Ayoze Perez, Siem de Jong, Remy Cabella, Emmanuel Riviere, Daryl Janmaat and Facundo Ferreyra, with the Costa Rica international the latest player on their hit list.

According to Newcastle Chronicle, Newcastle will attempt to sign the talented forward on a season-long loan before the summer transfer window closes.

Arsenal linked with move for Marco Reus 4

Posted on August 07, 2014 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal could be leading the race to sign Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus. The Germany international missed the Die Mannschaft’s World Cup triumph through injury, but he is one of the most highly-rated players in European football.

Release Clause

Reus has a release clause in his contract, which was believed to be around £35million, but Bayern director Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has claimed that the release clause is £25million. That fee is likely to mean that a host of clubs will be interested in signing the forward.

According to the Metro, Arsenal is looking at signing Manchester City centre-back Matija Nastastic. The 21-year-old Serbian international is apparently surplus to requirements at City and Tuttosport claim that the Citizens could sell the youngster. There are even suggestions that the youngster could go out on a season-long loan deal.

Target

Nastastic is believed to be Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s top target to reinforce his defence this summer, with Belgium international Thomas Vermaelen set to move away from the Emirates in the near future.
