Will Giroud stay at Arsenal this summer? 0

Posted on April 09, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was given 16 minutes from the bench in Wednesday’s win over West Ham United, and has made just one Premier League start for the Gunners since January. And with reports suggesting the French international has been contacted by a club in the French Ligue 1, could Giroud be on his way out this summer?

Given the former Montpellier centre-forward has largely spent the season as a substitute, Arsenal might not stand in his way if he seeks an exit in the summer. Giroud has scored a respectable nine goals in 793 minutes of Premier League football but finds himself below the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in the striker pecking order.

Should Arsenal enquire about Luke Shaw given broken relationship at Manchester United? 0

Posted on April 09, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has been publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho potentially to breaking point, with reports suggesting a parting of company in the summer as a result. And with Arsenal needing a left-back given the advancing age of their incumbent, should they look at Shaw?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger looks set to be staying at the club for another two seasons, in which time he will be tasked with future-proofing the squad to ensure his successor isn’t left with an ageing side undergoing a transitional period. This means a youth injection in the transfer market to cover each position, and one position needed will be at left-back.

French champions Paris Saint-Germain are preparing a mega-money offer for Arsenal key man Alexis Sanchez, according to reports from the French media outlet Le 10 Sport.

Alexis Sanchez has been linked with Arsenal exit for quite some time now, with various reports of the player’s frustration with lack of results and ambition at the Emirates. The Chilean’s reported fallout with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was another key factor in the 28-year-old wanting to leave at the end of the season.

Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina has once again emerged as a transfer target for Turkish heavyweights Fenerbahce.

David Ospina most recently managed to notch back-to-back Premier League appearances due to Petr Cech’s injury to his calf in the 3-1 defeat at West Brom, although he himself picked up a knock that is likely to keep him away from the West Ham clash tonight.

Arsenal compete with Tottenham over Toulouse talent 0

Posted on March 31, 2017 by Milos Markovic

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham appear to be locked in race for the 20-year-old Toulouse talent Issa Diop.

The central defender boasts an increasing list of admirers with Gunners and Spurs believing to be leading the line for his signature. According to reports, Bundesliga surprise outfit RB Leipzig have already had a €13 million offer rejected as the French club keeps weighing offers.

Posted on March 29, 2017 by Milos Markovic

The North London club appear to be coming to terms with Alexis Sanchez leaving the club at the end of the season as there are currently no indications that the Chilean superstar is prepared to commit himself to a new contract at Arsenal.

Following months of negotiations, the contract talks have reached an impasse and it is now believed that the two parties will not be returning to the table to discuss Sanchez’s contract situation until the end of the season.

Alexis Sanchez has reportedly asked for weekly wages around £300,000, which would be more than double to his current wages standing at £130,000 a week.

Juventus join chase for Hector Bellerin 0

Posted on March 29, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin continues to generate plenty of interest from Europe’s biggest clubs despite his poor run of form, which comes as a huge contrast to performances that made him a first-team regular at Emirates last season.

Reasons for troubling dip in form Hector Bellerin in experiencing could be found in increased pressure in the club and growing interest from his former club Barcelona.

However, the Catalan giants are not the only one interested in Arsenal hot-shot as the Italian media outlet Tuttosport is suggesting that Serie A champions Juventus have also set their sights on the 22-year-old defender.
