As one of my colleagues reported earlier, it looks like England midfielder Jack Wilshere could leave Arsenal on a permanent basis this summer. The reported news has been met by a mixed reaction from Arsenal fans.
The reason for their mixed reaction is that they just do not know what to make of Jack Wilshere. I have to admit I am in the same boat.
The midfielder’s contract expires this summer and he wants to stay at the club. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that he wants him to stay at the club too. He has been offered a new contract, but reportedly, he will have to take a pay cut to stay with the north London club. It seems .......Read more here.....

It seems that Arsenal has made signing a new goalkeeper one of their priorities this summer. Current number one Petr Cech was once a great custodian. However, the Czech star has seen better days and is now looking every bit his 35 years.

A number of candidates have been mooted to fill the post, despite current incumbent Arsene Wenger still having a contract until the summer of 2019. The likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Thomas Tuchel and Brendan Rodgers have all been linked with the job.
