Ivorian midfielder reveals Arsenal talks 0

Posted on October 01, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote has revealed that he wants to leave St James’ Park for greener pastures, hinting that a move to Arsenal would appeal to him.

It is no secret the Gunners are looking to sign a new holding midfielder and they have been linked with a move for the Ivorian in the past.

The transfer eventually failed to materialise, but Tiote has confirmed that he has been in contact with Arsenal, although it remains to be seen whether Arsene Wenger is still interested.

Will Flamini’s latest error force Wenger to shop for commanding holding midfielder? 1

Another error from an Arsenal holding midfielder could well be the last straw for manager Arsene Wenger, with the January transfer window potentially seeing a new arrival coming in to oust the underperforming and ageing Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini.

Flamini cost his side a goal on the weekend, after being caught in possession deep into his own half. He Frenchman was intercepted, and the subsequent move saw Nacer Chadli put North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 up in the derby.

Arsenal targeting Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph 0

Posted on September 28, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are considering making an approach for Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph, who recently made his England debut.

The 24-year-old has been outstanding for the Villans in the last 18 months, but his deal with Villa runs out next summer. Contracts talks have so far stalled, and now Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may look to bring him in, potentially in January or for free the following summer.

With the Gunners recently suffering a host of injury problems to their central midfield, Wenger doesn’t have many viable options. Delph would offer industry and work-rate, but also possesses great dribbling abilities, a real combative streak to his game, and rove for England that he’s proficient at ball retention.

Various reports are suggesting Arsenal could come in for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling when the January transfer window opens, as the Gunners are thin on strong defensive options.

Arsenal did attempt to sign Smalling this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger trying to negotiate a part exchange deal for the England international that would see then-Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen go to Old Trafford as a makeweight.

Recent reports are suggesting that Arsenal could make a move on Leeds United full-back Sam Byram as Arsene Wenger eyes more defensive reinforcements ahead of the January transfer window.

The Gunners have already signed two right-sided defenders this summer, but with Mathieu Debuchy set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines and Calum Chambers impressing in central defence, another right-back could be joining in the winter.

According to the latest rumours, Leeds United youngster Sam Byram is believed to be on Arsene Wenger’s hit-list as the Frenchman reportedly wants to sign more home-based players following the capture of Calum Chambers from Southampton.

Arsenal-target Marco Reus stalls Dortmund contract talks 0

Reports from the Express are revealing Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus has stalled on signing a new deal with the Bundesliga runners-up as he’s awaiting Premier League interest.

The German international, 25, has a release clause in his contract that is set to drop to £20M at the end of the season, and the Bundesliga club are desperately trying to tie him down to a long-term deal, rather than risk losing him for a below value price as they did with Robert Lewandowski.

The 15-year-old has attracted attention of some of the Premier League’s big boys after impressing in youth tournaments for Belgium giants Anderlecht. The youngster has already been given a trial by Chelsea, while Arsenal is also believed to have invited Svilar for a trial.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has added fuel to speculation linking the Gunners with a January move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani by admitting that he really likes the Uruguayan forward.

The highly rated footballer is reportedly unhappy at being played out of position at Parc des Princes and he is open to the possibility of leaving the Saints in the near future.

According to the latest reports, Arsenal have emerged as favourites for his signature and Arsene Wenger has done little to dispel the rumours despite also criticising the player for his latest performances.

Arsenal in bid for Lyon striker Clinton N’Jie 0

Posted on September 22, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are eyeing up young striker Clinton D’Jie.

The 21-year-old Cameroonian international, who currently plays for Olympique Lyonnais, has been scouted by the Gunners, and manager Arsene Wenger wants to procure his signature when the January transfer window opens.

He would set the club back just £800K, and considering how many are tipping him for a bright career, it could be a bargain for Arsenal.

N’Jie has made four appearances for the Ligue One side, and he’s featured on two occasions in the Europa League this season too, scoring once. His international form has been very impressive, with the 21-year-old scoring three goals in two games for the national team.

Arsenal keep tabs on Edinson Cavani 2

Posted on September 19, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Daily Express has suggested that Arsenal are considering a winter swoop for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, who is reportedly becoming unsettled at Parc des Princes.

Reputable French newspaper L’Equipe revealed few days ago that the Uruguayan had become increasingly frustrated with Laurent Blanc for playing him on the wing and he is ready to quit the Saints at the earliest opportunity.

Namely, Cavani had been promised a central role when he joined from Napoli and he has instead been used on right and left wing as superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the preferred centre forward in a 4-3-3 formation.
