Various reports in Spain have suggested that Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas hopes to leave los Blancos for Arsenal in the summer transfer window as Keylor Navas looks set to complete a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

The Spain international played second fiddle to Diego Lopez last season and with the Costa Rica star also set to sign, he is no longer prepared to wait for his chances.

According to the latest reports, Arsenal are ready to match his £7.1 million yearly wage and offer him a five-year deal at the Emirates, but only provided they can sign him on a free transfer.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is about to make England international midfielder Jack Wilshere his first choice for the anchorman role in midfield. The strengthening of the position was believed to be one of the Gunners priorities this summer.


As we all know the likes of Germany internationals Sami Khedira and Lars Bender have been linked with moves to the Emirates. It was largely expected the Gunners would bring a new defensive midfielder to north London this summer.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal’s Spanish pair Nacho Monreal and Santi Cazorla has emerged as summer transfer targets for Spanish reigning champions Atletico Madrid.

Atleti have lost both striker Diego Costa and full-back Felipe Luis to Chelsea this summer and are now looking to strengthen their own squad.


Spanish international Nacho Monreal is very much backup left-back to Kieran Gibbs at the Emirates. He must be frustrated warming the bench and only getting a game when Gibbs is injured, which unfortunately is more often than we would like.

Arsenal are ready to launch a fresh assault on Argentina full-back Gino Peruzzi, who is currently on the books of Italian side Catania, according to the latest reports.

Despite signing Mathei Debuchy as a replacement for Bacary Sagna, Arsene Wenger does not seem convinced with Carl Jenkinson as he is actively searching for another right-sided defender.

And with the Gunners failing in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid starlet Javier Manquillo, it appears they have turned their attention to Catania full-back Gino Peruzzi.

Wenger denies striker move 0

Arsenal Football Club will not be making any more attacking signings in the summer transfer window, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has moved to suggest.

The club produced quite a coup by recruiting Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona and it appears that the Chilean will be used in a central role, with Olivier Giroud and Yaya Sanogo acting as his back-up.

Given that Joel Campbell has returned from yet another impressive loan spell and Theo Walcott expected to return into action in the opening exchanges, Wenger seems to have no plans to add any more attack-minded players to the squad.

David Ospina could prove a bargain buy for Arsenal 0

Posted on July 21, 2014 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal is close to completing a £3million deal to sign Colombia number one David Ospina. The 25-year-old was already a highly-rated keeper prior to the World Cup, but his performances in Brazil have raised his profile even further.

Ospina looked very solid as the South American’s reached the quarter-finals of the competition and were unlucky to exit the competition at the hands of the hosts Brazil.


Ospina has forged a big reputation in Ligue One with Nice, where he has become known as a very reliable keeper. Ospina has helped Nice to become a stable team in the French top-flight. Ospina has spent five years at the French club developing his talent.

Arsene Wenger to strengthen further this summer 0

It will come as no surprise to Arsenal fans that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has stated that he will strengthen his squad this summer. There are still certain areas of the team that are in need of strengthening and hopefully some new faces arrive sooner rather than later.


Wenger confirmed that he will strengthen his squad by telling Sky Sports: “It’s not over, there’s still a long way to go.

“I can’t give you any names because you’re never sure if you can do what you want, but we’re still out there to strengthen our squad.”

Wenger admits uncertain future for Thomas Vermaelen 1

Posted on July 20, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

With rumours linking Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen with a move to Manchester United, manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he will find a replacement for the Belgian centre-back this summer.

New United manager Louis van Gaal reportedly made a £10M bid for Vermaelen, but Arsenal are keen to hold on to him. However, with the 28-year-old playing less than 800 minutes of Premier League football last season, he would jump at the chance to get regular first-team action elsewhere.

“I cannot guarantee that (he will stay at the club) but should he go, I will bring another centre back in for sure”, said Wenger.

Should Arsenal be competing for Loic Remy? 6

Posted on July 19, 2014 by David Nugent

According to reports on Sky Sports, Liverpool has agreed a fee of around £8.5million for QPR and France striker Loic Remy. The former-Marseille striker was previously heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.


For that sort of fee the striker seems right up Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s street and the fact that he is also French normally appeals to the Gunners boss. It is surprising that the Gunners have not yet made a move.


Loic Remy has to be considered a consistent Premier League goalscorer. While on-loan at Newcastle the striker scored 14 Premier League goals and also got three assists in 26 appearances for the Magpies.
