Arsenal still keeping tabs on Alvaro Morata? 0

Posted on September 29, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

According to Don Balon, Arsenal are one of two sides reportedly keen on signing Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata in the winter transfer window. The Gunners were interested in the 23-year-old back in the summer but instead opted for Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez as they were priced out for the Real centre-forward.

However, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is said to still be weighing up an approach for the striker as he looks to turn his side into challengers for major honours following their upturn in form in all competitions. Morata has scored two goals for Real Madrid this season, but particularly impressed during his two-season spell with Juventus.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaced the impressive Theo Walcott in the 70th minute of Wednesday’s 2-0 win over FC Basel, but won’t have been pleased with his own performance at the Emirates Stadium. The former Southampton man wasted a glorious opportunity to make it 3-0 to Arsenal later in the game, rounding the goalkeeper but failing to cross the ball into the area quickly enough before the ‘keeper got back.

Arsenal centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi helped the Gunners to a second consecutive clean sheet in all competitions after shutting out FC Basel in Wednesday’s Champions League group game. Basel managed just two shots on target at the Emirates Stadium, and are the second side in a matter of days to fall short against Koscielny and Mustafi at the heart of the defence.

Olivier Giroud faces a tough task to get himself back into the Arsenal side 1

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud was forced to watch his side flourish in his absence with Wednesday’s 2-0 win over FC Basel being the Gunners’ sixth consecutive win in all competitions. Giroud has racked up just 78 minutes of game time for Arsenal this season, and may have a tough task getting back into the starting line-up given how well Alexis Sanchez has fared in his role as a makeshift No.9.

Theo Walcott continues fine form with Champions League brace 0

Posted on September 29, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott looks like a new man this season, and the former Saints attacker continue his recent resurgence with both goals in a 2-0 win over FC Basel in Wednesday’s Champions League clash. Walcott’s opener came just seven minutes into the game, courtesy of a lofted Alexis Sanchez cross that Walcott headed home.

The 27-year-old wasn’t done there either, and once again it was Sanchez who was the provider. In the 26th minutes, Walcott played a one-two with his Chilean teammate and rifled a low effort into the far corner to double Arsenal’s lead and his personal tally for the evening. It’s already his fifth goal in all competitions, and Walcott believes his form came from a pre-season talk with manager Arsene Wenger about his dwindling stature at the club.

The Gunners took the lead with virtually the first real attempt on goal. Alexis Sanchez broke free down the right and cross for Theo Walcott who had the simple task of heading home after rising high to beat his marker in the air.

On 17 minutes the visitors offered their first real threat on goal, as defender Suchy headed over from a corner kick. The Gunners were two up on 26 minutes. Sanchez was involved again as he found Walcott who kept his cool to drill an effort across goal to double the Gunners lead.

Premier League outfit Arsenal have joined chase for the in-form French forward Gregoire Defrel, according to reports from Daily Mail.

Gunners have joined chase for in-demand Sassuolo striker, who has been closely watched by Crystal Palace, Swansea and Liverpool.

Swansea were keeping an eye on the striker last January as the Welsh side utilised their Italian contacts through manager Francesco Guidolin to keep Defrel in the loop.

Arsene Wenger was also alarmed by the in-form striker having reportedly sent his scouts to watch the 25-year-old striker in action on three different occasions this season and is likely to continue to monitor his progress ahead of a potential January deal.

Arsenal fans were hoping for a new centre-back and a new striker in the summer transfer window. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger kept his powder dry until deadline day. The Frenchman then signed Shkodran Mustafi and striker Lucas Perez.

Lucas may take a while to adapt to his new surroundings, but Mustafi has already produced very positive signs that he has what it takes to be a top Premier League centre-back.

Why didn’t Mustafi arrive sooner?
