Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has named Giovanni Van Bronckhorst as the man he wants to replace him. The Gunners’ boss has had to put up with a lot of speculation regarding his future this and last season, and he has further stoked the fires by naming his ideal successor.

Arsenal dismantled Tottenham 2-0 in the north London derby on Saturday as they dragged themselves back into the race for the top-four. Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez were enough to see off Spurs in a contest that saw the hosts dominate.

Arsenal are set to be handed a major blow in their pursuit of Schalke’s Leon Goretzka. With Arsene Wenger looking to add more options to his squad, the news will come as a huge disappointment to the manager and the club.

Arsenal were able to get their Premier League campaign back on track at the weekend as they brushed Tottenham aside in impressive fashion. Their 2-0 win actually flattered Spurs, with the visitors offering very little on the day as they were dominated by their opponents.

La Liga title contenders Barcelona have stepped up the chase for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil.

The Catalans have been informed of the German international’s availability by Arsene Wenger himself, claims Don Balon, and have moved forward to open talks regarding a possible January move.

Wenger is keen to cash in on his wantaway star rather than lose him for free when Ozil’s contract expires at the end of the season and Barcelona are prepared to take advantage of such a situation.

Arsenal reportedly send scouts to watch Porto ace 0

Arsenal outplayed Tottenham in their north London derby on Saturday as the Gunners returned to Premier League action with a 2-0 win. The victory allowed the London side to relieve a lot of the pressure that they had come under, and they are now reportedly looking to add more strength to their squad as they supposedly sent scouts to watch Porto’s Danilo.

Arsenal were by far the better team on the day as they defied the odds to claim a valuable win on Saturday. The 2-0 scoreline did nothing to flatter the Gunners, who probably should have won by more. Tottenham were very poor on the day but that should not take away from the performance of the home side.

Arsenal open talks with Paris Saint-Germain over HUGE January deal 0

Reports in France are spreading a huge transfer story that involves Arsenal and one of Paris Saint-Germain’s biggest stars Julian Draxler.

Gunners have long been linked with the German international who has thus far been rewarded with only seven Ligue 1 games this season. Arsene Wenger have been keeping the German international in his sight since his early days and the French tactician is a known admirer of his talents.

Draxler is said to be desperately looking for regular football in order to polish his form ahead of the next summer’s World Cup in Russia and it is French media outlet L’Equipe who claim that a number of Europe’s clubs – including Arsenal – are monitoring the situation.

Arsenal dismantled Tottenham in a 2-0 win on Saturday as they proved to everyone that they can still compete in the biggest games. Despite starring throughout the match, it has been reported that Mesut Ozil has been given permission to negotiate a January transfer away from Arsenal.

The Gunners were able to defy the odds as they beat Tottenham last Saturday. The 2-0 win was one that few saw coming, but from the way they played, it was entirely deserved. For a man, Arsenal outplayed their opponents, with the usually so devastating Spurs unable to get a foothold in the game.

Another day, another Mesut Ozil rumour as midfielder’s former club join race 0

It’s just another regular day in the Mesut Ozil transfer saga.

The 29-year-old World Cup winner is nowhere near signing a new contract with the London-based club and is looking increasingly likely to leave the Emirates as early as January.

Mesut Ozil produced a superb display in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Tottenham last weekend to send a clear message to his relentless critics and also to show potential suitors what is there to get in the German midfield maestro.

Ozil has initially been linked with a Manchester United switch but Arsene Wenger would rather not sell his prized asset to his direct rivals in the Premier League, more so to his hated rival Jose Mourinho.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are in talks with German club Dortmund about appointing their chief scout Sven Mislintat. The Gunners are reportedly set to appoint Mislintat as the head of recruitment working alongside chief scout Steve Rowley, who was rumoured to be set for the Emirates exit.

Reports last week claimed that Rowley was leaving the club. However, it now seems the pair are set to work together. The Sky report claims a deal is close for the Gunners to complete the move for the highly-rated Mislintat, who is nicknamed ‘the diamond’.

Catalan giants Barcelona look determined to go for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil during the January transfer window.

The German international Ozil is running out of contract at the end of the season and Gunners look set to sell their first-team star in order to avoid losing him on a free contract next summer and La Liga leaders Barcelona are said to be leading the race.

The 29-year-old midfielder has been the centre of attention at Arsenal for quite some time. Ozil has been linked with a departure to Manchester United where he would be reunited with former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, but it appears that Arsene Wenger would rather not sell his top asset to league rivals.

Rated one of the most promising goalkeepers in Europe, Keppa Arrizabalaga is gaining plenty of admirers all around the continent.

The 23-year-old Athletic Bilbao custodian’s contract with the Basque side expired in June and Arrizabalaga has been widely tipped to join La Liga and Champions League holders Real Madrid who have emerged as the biggest favourites to secure his signature.

Spanish media outlet Marca claimed that Los Blancos are willing to trigger his release clause in excess of €20 million and get him to Santiago Bernabeu in January, but the British press report that Arsenal are prepared to challenge the Spanish giants in an effort to steal Keppa Arrizabalaga’s signature.
