Arsenal offer for Kokorin revealed 0

Posted on October 09, 2015 by Nemanja Lazarevic

Dynamo Moscow forward Aleksandr Kokorin was the subject of a summer bid from Premier League side Arsenal, both his coach and official representative have moved to confirm.

It has now been revealed that the Gunners attempted to sign the 24-year-old on loan in the summer transfer window, but their offer was clearly not good enough.

Dynamo Moscow coach Andrey Kobelev did not want to let his star player leave for England, fearing that he would not be given a fair opportunity to showcase his skills.

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?

Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani has welcomed interest from Premier League giants Arsenal, according to a source close to the Italian defender.

The 21-year-old caught the eye of quite a few sides with some outstanding performances during a loan spell with Empoli last season, and he has since returned to Turin.

However, having failed to make a single appearance in the first six league games, Rugani is being heavily linked with a move away from the club.

Reports in Italy are suggesting that Arsenal have taken a keen interest in the talented footballer, with the Gunners reportedly even submitting an official proposal this summer.

Will Wenger better utilise his fringe players after avoiding a deadline day signing? 1

Posted on September 01, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal failed to spend on deadline day, with goalkeeper Petr Cech being their only summer signing. Supporters have been bemused by the lack of transfer activity, especially given the deficiencies in the side, but will manager Arsene Wenger now call upon the club’s fringe players to step up to the plate?

The likes of Joel Campbell in attack could prove to be a useful addition considering how short on goals the Gunners have been so far this season. Wenger has so far overlooked the talented Costa Rican international, but questions will be asked about their deadline day inactivity if the manager isn’t planning on using his entire squad during the course if the campaign.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has all but confirmed reports that the Gunners will add more high-profile players before the summer window closes on Tuesday, 1st September.

The Gunners have so far only recruited veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech from Chelsea, while Lukas Podolski and Abou Diaby were allowed to leave.

And while the latest speculations suggest that Wenger will make a move on Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, the manager has revealed that he does plan to make more summer signings.

Arsenal 11/10 to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema this summer 0

Posted on August 20, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Bookmakers have cut odds for Arsenal to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema during this season’s summer transfer window following a flurry of bets in the last 48 hours.

News broke of a £48M bid made from the Gunners for the former Olympique Lyonnais striker on Wednesday, but given there’s been little talk from either side suggesting such a deal is even in the pipeline, many aren’t convinced at the rumours.

This summer, Real have been more focused on signing Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea than letting other players go. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is unlikely to smash the club‘s transfer record to sign a position he doesn’t think Arsenal lack in.

Barcelona midfielder Alex Song looks on course to seal a permanent transfer to West Ham United this summer, with the 27year-old deemed not good enough for Luis Enrique’s side. And given he’s a former Arsenal player, having made more than 220 appearances for the Londoners between 2005 and 2012, who can break up the play, while being proficient at ball retention, would he not have been a good addition for the Gunners?

Arsenal forward Joel Campbell is reportedly close to completing a deal to sign for Italian Serie A side Palermo this summer, with the Costa Rican international seeking first-team football after being told such opportunities would be few and far between in an Arsenal shirt. The 23-year-old has shown promise earlier in his career, but has failed to improve in the last few years.

The Metro have confirmed that Arsenal’s young Brazilian winger Wellington Da Silva has joined Championship side Bolton Wanderers on loan. The move was revealed by the 22-year-old’s Instagram account.

Since joining the Gunners, Wellington has had loans with Spanish clubs Levante, Alcoyano, Ponterradina, Murcia and last season at Almeria. None of those loan spells have proved that successful, as the winger has been inconsistent.

Should Arsenal have made an approach for Yohan Cabaye this summer? 2

Posted on August 14, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal lock horns with Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend which will see midfielder Yohan Cabaye going up against a side who could well have signed him in the past, and Palace manager Alan Pardew believes his counterpart made a big mistake in overlooking him.

The Gunners were one of many teams linked with the playmaker’s services during his time with Newcastle, and his following difficult spell with Paris-Saint-Germain, but talks never progressed with Arsenal, which led to the move back to France. And when he was made available for transfer from PSG, it was Crystal Palace who made the Frenchman theirs.
