Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly stepping up their efforts to sign Spanish forward Nolito from Celta Vigo, according to numerous reports in Spain.

In the light of the recent injury crisis, the Gunners may decide to add more bodies to the squad in an attempt to keep their Premiership title bid alive and the Spain international is reportedly high on their wish list.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny remains undecided on his future despite impressing at AS Roma and he has even hinted he would be happy to return to the Emirates.

Szczesny has been putting in some strong performances in both domestic championship and the Champions League, with AS Roma officials hoping to tie him down to a long-term deal.

Spotlight on Arsenal target Granit Xhaka 0

Posted on November 12, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal have been linked with Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Granit Xhaka this season, with the Swiss playmaker making a name for himself following a real rise to prominence in the last 18 months. Reports have suggested a £30M bid could be in the offing for the 23-year-old, and here’s why he’s attracted the attention of Arsenal among others.

Xhaka is talented playmaker who boasts high levels of ball retention. He’s less effective in the final third, and instead more of a combative player who will control possession in the middle of the park. With his defensive traits, the Swiss midfielder is someone Arsenal have been lacking, with only Francis Coquelin and fringe star Mathieu Flamini being players of his ilk.

Catalan daily newspaper Sport has moved to suggest that Arsenal are among clubs showing interest in Dynamo Kiev star forward Andriy Yarmolenko.

The Gunners are being linked with signing at least another attacker in the January transfer window and they have so far shown interest in Aleksandr Kokorin and Nolito.

Will Arsenal spend in January? 2

Posted on October 08, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is being linked with a host of names, with various reports tipping the long-serving Gunners boss to spend in the January transfer market on a new striker. But considering the form of Theo Walcott at first-choice, coupled with the cover Olivier Giroud provides as back-up, the Londoners are unlikely to add to their array of forward this season – nor are they immediately deficient in any other area on the pitch. So could supporters be left disappointed in the midseason transfer window?
