Arsenal need a long-term replacement for Nacho Monreal 0

Posted on February 27, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal recently turned 31 this month and is fighting for his place in the side after being dropped in the Premier League for Kieran Gibbs in recent weeks. The Spanish left-back has made 23 appearances this season but hasn’t been at his best in 2017 which will be a worry given the Gunners don’t have a better alternative in his stead.

The lack of game time for Gibbs has affected form as his re-introduction to the Arsenal first-team has seen him looking considerably short of quality and sharpness. The English international was tipped to eventually replace Monreal, but he will be 30 by the time the Spaniard’s contract is up at Arsenal (2019), and his performances are likely to see him on the periphery.

It is another day and another new name on the increasing list of possible Arsenal transfer targets.

In the reports brought and spread out by ESPN, the North London club have set their sights on FC Porto striker Andre Silva.

The Gunners have sent scouts to watch the 21-year-old Portugal international in action against the Serie A champions Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League Last-16 tie as a possible summer move is being mooted for one of Europe’s highly-rated prospects.

Arsenal are thought to be looking to expand their forward options next season and the young Portugal talent is seen as the ideal long-term addition to the squad.

Could Szczesny be on his way to Dortmund in the summer? 0

Posted on February 23, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is reportedly the subject of interest from a number of European sides, but Borussia Dortmund are said to be leading the chase for his signature. The Polish international has been on loan with AS Roma for two seasons, but the Serie A giants may not be able to match his agreed fee of £13M to make the deal permanent.

With Petr Cech and David Ospina as first and second choice at Arsenal, Szczesny has stiff competitions for a starting place if he returns to his parent club, and the 26-year-old may well be open to a move away from the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season as a result. Juventus and Napoli are two sides keen on the goalkeeper, but perhaps not to be an immediate regular.

Could Giroud return to France this summer? 0

Posted on February 22, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly being targeted by French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille ahead of a potential move at the end of the season. The Gunners centre-forward has been second-choice in attack this season due to Alexis Sanchez’s fine form in the role, and may consider his future with the Londoners as a result.

While not showing any public discontent in the lack of starts for Arsenal this campaign, Giroud may seek regular playing time with another club as it doesn’t appear he will be getting himself back into the side any time soon. He’s been effective from the substitutes’ bench, however, scoring an impressive 11 goals in all competitions in 2016/17, but reports suggest he’s weighing up his options.

Barcelona not giving up on Hector Bellerin 0

The Catalan giants Barcelona are dead set on making a deal for one of their former La Masia undergraduates Hector Bellerin happen in the nearest possible future.

Arsenal right-back has been repeatedly linked with a move back to the club he left in 2011 and according to the latest reports coming from the Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are confident a deal for the 21-year-old star could go through this summer already, if Arsene Wenger ends up leaving his post as Arsenal manager in the summer.

Have you heard the latest news on Emmanuel Frimpong? 0

Posted on February 22, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong remains an attractive subject for Arsenal supporters, despite the fact he never quite lived up to his billing.

The 25-year-old Ghana international earned himself a somewhat ‘legendary’ status with Arsenal faithful with his DENCH catchphrase – which was even written on the back of his shirt at Arsenal Tula – and social media antics that made him a community star, much larger and brighter one than he has ever been in football regard.

A football nomad of sort who was loaned out to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and Fulham during his time at Arsenal, made a short-lived move to Barnsley in 2014, before heading east to FC Ufa.

Premier league rivals Arsenal and Tottenham have set their sights on the same player, France Football has reported as both Gunners and Spurs sent scouts across the channel to watch Toulouse starlet Issa Diop.

The 20-year-old talented defender has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in the country and both North London sides appear to be alerted by his impressive performances this season.

Arsenal and Tottenham scouts were in France over the weekend where they grabbed a look of the Tolouse defender in action against reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Is Lucas Perez’s time at the Emirates already at an end? 0

Posted on February 19, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is reportedly disillusioned with the club and is seeking an exit at the earliest opportunity. The Spanish attacker, who signed from Deportivo La Coruna in the summer, has struggled for game time this season, and recently held talks with manager Arsene Wenger to hash out his future.

Perez is believed to have made his feelings clear that he wants to leave in the summer and Italian Serie A side AC Milan are one club reportedly interested in his services. The 28-year-old was brought to Arsenal as a secondary option to first-choice target Jamie Vardy of Leicester City, but hasn’t made much of an impact due to the lack of minutes afforded to him.

There is no end in sight for Arsenal’s difficulties as it seems that Bayern Munich loss caused an avalanche at the Emirates.

Arsene Wenger is being pressured to call time on his 20-year reign at the North London club as Gunners hang of from the edge of a cliff in the Champions League for the sixth season in a row.

Having suffered a huge 5-1 blow at the Allianz Arena during the week, Arsenal are likely to once again finish their European adventure outside the quarter-finals, and fans have had enough of the disappointments.
