Posted on April 09, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

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

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

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.


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.

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.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been forced to concede his side’s title hopes are over for another season, while the Champions League was beyond them too. But they do have one saving grace left – the FA Cup.

The Telegraph has learned that Fulham youngster Patrick Roberts is being linked with a summer switch to the Emirates. Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing the talented attacker and could step up their interest at the end of the season.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has given an injury update ahead of the Gunners’ vital weekend clash against Everton.

Midfielder Aaron Ramsey will return to the squad after a long layout. The Welsh international had been out of action since Boxing Day with a thigh injury.

The Everton match will be too soon for midfielder Jack Wilshere, however. Wenger said the England man is ‘progressing very well’ from a broken foot.

Centreback Laurent Koscielny could return ‘in a week’s time’, or at the very latest the following week, said the Arsenal boss. The French defender has missed the Londoners last two matches.

Glad that Kaboul is not heading for Arsenal 1

Posted on April 03, 2014 by David Nugent

The Daily Star were yesterday claiming that Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul could be heading for the Emirates Stadium on a free transfer this summer. Kaboul has endured an injury-hit season and the French international is expected to leave White Hart Lane when his contract expires this summer.

This rumour broke on Wednesday, but I am surprised it did not break on Tuesday, which was April 1st, a day famous for April fool’s day jokes of course.

Switzerland starlet Josip Drmic has denied that a deal has been agreed for him to join Arsenal this summer. The 21-year-old striker has scored 16 goals for struggling Bundesliga outfit Nurnberg this season, just one goal behind Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic in the race for the golden boot in the German top-flight.


Germany legend Lothar Matthaus had even claimed on German television that Drmic and his wife were looking at houses in the English capital ahead of the move. However, the youngster has denied that any deal has been agreed.
