Are Arsenal done in the transfer market this summer? 1

Posted on July 01, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal supporters were delighted to see the club sign Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as it represented how far manager Arsene Wenger was willing to go to turn the Londoners into title-challengers again, but is the Gunners boss finished in the transfer market this summer?

Almost immediately after the last season had come to close, Wenger admitted the club wouldn’t be spending heavily on major buys, saying: “We have not spent stratospheric kind of money. We will not be involved. Not at that level. I’m always more focused on a good rapport between price and quality.”

Arsenal’s latest signing Petr Cech has moved to reveal that it was Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich who eventually decided to allow the experienced goalkeeper to join local rivals in a reported £10 million deal.

The Blues manager Jose Mourinho was believed to be against the deal taking place due to his well known policy of not allowing his players to join club’s Premiership rivals.

That is probably the reason why the transfer took so long to get completed, and Petr Cech has now confessed that owner Roman Abramovich needed to interfere to allow the long-serving player to leave the club.

Italian media outlet Sport Mediaset is reporting that Arsenal are weighing up a bid for Napoli forward Eduardo Vargas as they look to reinforce the attacking department in the summer transfer window.

It is believed that the Gunners star Alexis Sanchez has encouraged the Premier League side to try and lure the 25-year-old to North London, with the Azzurri looking to cash in on the Chile hotshot.

Vargas has not started a single league game since joining Napoli in January 2012, albeit enjoying loan spells with Gremio, Valencia and Queens Park Rangers.

Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho has been impressing in this summer’s U21 European Championships with Portugal U21s, continuing on from an impressive domestic season, which will set a host of clubs on red alert for his services when he returns from international duty.

The 23-year-old has been linked with Arsenal for the last 12 months, and has shown exactly why with a series of brilliant showings in this year’s youth tournament. Carvalho is a defensive midfielder with a physical presence, who provides the protection to his backline, as well as sometimes driving deep in possession. He’s an imposing figure in the middle of the park, and has been outstanding in the Portuguese top-flight this season.

Was Arturo Vidal ever really an Arsene Wenger target? 1

Posted on June 30, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Various reports are suggesting Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has turned his attention away from the likes of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal this summer, and is in pursuit of other targets, but was the long-serving Gunners boss ever really interested in the hot-head Chilean?

Vidal, 28 is a talented player, and has been on the radar of many teams ahead of the new season, but he’s not of the Wenger mould to be an Arsenal signing. Combative and industrious, the South American midfielder often goes over the line in games, and can have issues with indiscipline as a result.

As my colleague Nemanja revealed on Monday, Arsenal have completed the £10million signing of Czech Republic international Petr Cech from Chelsea. The deal seemed to take an age to complete, as the deal was originally mooted in January, but it is now officially finalised.


The signing of Cech could be the major coup of the summer transfer window. Cech was linked with a number of other clubs including big-spending French outfit PSG, but the Gunners were able to clinch the 33-year-old’s signature.

Les Dogues recently recruited Herve Renard, one of Europe’s most talented coaches, and they have big ambitions ahead of the 2015/2016 campaign.

With Nolan Roux expected to leave, Lille hope to sign one or two centre forwards in the summer transfer window. And with their top target Jordan Ayew not available for sale, they appear to have turned their attention towards Yaya Sanogo.
