Posted on December 18, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Media reports in Poland are suggesting that Premier League giants Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Polish midfielder Krystian Bielik from from Legia Warsaw.

The 16-year-old recently visited the Premiership side with his parents as he was given tour of the training ground and facilities and it seems that the youngster and his family have been convinced by the Gunners officials.

It remains to be seen whether Bielik will join Arsenal in January or at the end of the season, but it has been reported that he will be earning around £2,000 per week in North London, which is a huge pay rise to his current £125 per week salary.

Despite hinting that he would be in the market for a central defender and defensive midfielder after the summer transfer window closed, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has now suggested that the Gunners are unlikely to sign any new players in January.

The Emirates outfit have largely struggled at the back due to injuries to Laurent Koscielny and Mathieu Debuchy, but even with the two players now back in action, the Gunners appear short of options in defence.

However, Arsene Wenger has again risked feeling the wrath of club fans by admitting that he would not be adding more bodies to the squad if Laurent Koscielny can prove his fitness.

Premier League giants Arsenal are reportedly ready to challenge Champions League holders Real Madrid for the signature of Cruzeiro midfielder Lucas Silva, Marca has revealed on Thursday.

Los Merengues are believed to be leading the chase at the moment and they were expected to wrap up the deal well ahead of the January transfer window, having reportedly agreed personal terms with the player.

However, it would appear that some €3m stands behind Real Madrid and their target considering that Cruzeiro value their star player at €15m and los Blancos have offered €12m.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he is looking at young Ipswich defender Tyrone Mings, with a view to make a bid for the £8M-rated full-back in January.

The 21-year-old can also play centre-back due to his aerial superiority, and with him also boasting great speed for a defender, he has unsurprisingly has attracted a lot of interest.

“We are following a few young players but we are not close to signing anybody. (Mings) is one of the young players we follow,” said the long-serving Gunners boss.

French media outlet Le 10 Sport has suggested that Arsenal are keeping close tabs on Lyon starlet Nabil Fekir with a view of luring the 21-year-old to the Emirates at the end of the current campaign.

The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger has a firm foothold of the French market and he has been notified of Fekir’s impressive displays a while back.

According to Le 10 Sport, Arsenal scout Giles Grimandi has been scouting the attacking midfielder over the last couple of months and he has been impressed with the Lyon starlet.

Should Arsenal be going all out for Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels? 1

Posted on December 02, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal are guaranteed to sign a defender when the January transfer window opens, and supporters feel there should be no expense spared if the club are serious about their seasonal objectives to challenge for major honours.

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels could be an ideal addition if Arsenal can pull out all the stops to sign him. The German international, 25, has been enduring a disappointing campaign with Dortmund this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently bottom of the table, losing eight of their 13 games played.

Posted on December 01, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Arsenal wantaway forward Lukas Podolski has reiterated his desire to return for a third spell at FC Koln as he appears to be nearing the Emirates exit.

Even if Arsene Wenger is adamant the Germany star is not for sale, the 29-year-old is no longer prepared to wait for his chance in North London and everything suggests he will be leaving as early as January.

And while some of Europe’s top sides remain keen on his services, Podolski cannot seem to stop thinking about FC Koln, the club where it all started for him, and he has said in no uncertain terms that a return to RheinEnergie Stadion is on the cards.

Lukas Podolski drops fresh quit hint 0

Posted on November 24, 2014 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Germany star Lukas Podolski has reiterated his desire to play more regularly at the Emirates, revealing that he is far from happy with his current status at the club.

The highly rated forward has been on the fringes this season, making just four substitute appearances in the Premier League and it is perfectly clear he is not in the first team plans of manager Arsene Wenger.

And while most players would have long ago jumped ship if they were in his shoes, Podolski is still hoping to be given a fair chance at the Emirates, even if that looks highly unlikely at the moment.

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has moved to admit that he has tried to persuade international teammate Sami Khedira to leave Real Madrid in favour of a switch to the Emirates.

The Germany international will be out of contract in the summer at Santiago Bernabeu and chances are that he will be leaving los Blancos in search of first team football either in January or at the end of the season.

Khedira has been repeatedly linked with a move to Arsenal and with the Gunners on the lookout for a new holding midfielder, the Premier League giants are likely to be interested.
