Is there time to get Dembele done? 0

Posted on August 08, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The summer transfer window is set to close much earlier than usual this year, with tomorrow being the new Deadline Day just twenty-four hours before the Premier League actually kicks off. A parade of teams will be hoping to get some last minute deals done in order to bolster their squad and one such team is Arsenal.

The Gunners have already brought in a series of high-profile names throughout the summer in an attempt to improve their chances of finishing in the top four, but is it enough? The answer is probably yes given the depth they have in their squad, but when you’re linked with a name like Ousmane Dembele, it’s hard to pass up that kind of opportunity to try and sign him.

Forget the politics 0

Stan Kroenke is now the sole owner of Arsenal Football Club, and that sentence has frustrated quite a few fans over the last twenty-four hours – and rightfully so. It’s a tough situation in more ways than one and it’s completely understandable to see why so many people are annoyed by it, given that it creates more of a disconnect between the club and the fanbase. Alas, in every great negative there’s a positive to be found and in this instance, that positive is the return of the Premier League and domestic football as a whole.

Calum Chambers set for loan move to Fulham 0

According to the BBC, Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is set to join London rivals Fulham on a season-long loan deal. The report suggests that the player just needs to agree on personal terms with Cottagers before completing the move.

The 23-year-old has only recently signed a contract extension in north London. However, it seems that he is moving to Craven Cottage for more regular first team football this season.

Pushed down the pecking order by new arrivals

The summer arrivals of Swiss international defender Stephan Lichtsteiner and Greek defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos has seen Chambers fall down the pecking order at the north London.

Kroenke set to launch Arsenal bid 0

Posted on August 07, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Stan Kroenke has bought out Alisher Usmanov, meaning that he now has sole control and ownership of Arsenal Football Club. The overall value is believed to be around £1.8 million, with Kroenke now being the metaphorical judge, jury and executioner in North London – or, at least, one part of North London.

It’s a move that has upset and angered many fans who believe that this pulls them further away from the club that they know and love which, on the face of it, makes a lot of sense. Kroenke has long since been viewed as one of the major problems behind the struggle that the Gunners have experienced over the last few years, with his inability to pull the trigger on sacking Arsene Wenger being a big reason for that.

Arsenal set for Sunday showcase 0

Posted on August 07, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Whilst the Championship is now back underway after this past weekend, all eyes are now turning towards the Premier League which kicks off on Friday night. The twenty teams involved in the top flight will get their respective campaigns underway, as everyone attempts to build some momentum ahead of what is sure to be a gruelling 38-game season.

Two such teams are Arsenal and Manchester City, who will have the honour of closing out the first matchday during the 4pm kickoff on Sunday. The Gunners have been preparing for this for around two months now since the fixture list was released, with both teams strengthening their squads ahead of the new season.

West Ham interested in signing Arsenal striker 0

According to Sky Sports, West Ham are interested in signing Arsenal’s Spanish striker Lucas Perez before Thursday transfer deadline. The 29-year-old could well seal a move away from north London in the next few days, especially as the player’s agent has confirmed interest from the Hammers.

Surplus to requirements at Arsenal

Lucas Perez is reportedly considered surplus to requirements at Arsenal. The forward spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna, where he scored eight times in 35 appearances as Deportivo suffered relegation under Clarence Seedorf.

Emery’s mentality 0

Posted on August 06, 2018 by Harry Kettle

A lot of eyes are going to be on Arsenal this weekend, if only because they’ll be opening their Premier League campaign against reigning champions Manchester City. With just under a week remaining until kick-off some managers would probably be choosing to rest and keep a low profile, but not Unai Emery. Instead, the Spaniard took some time out of his day this weekend to go and watch the Community Shield which was contested between the aforementioned City and Chelsea.

Taking the risk? 0

The summer transfer window is coming to a close in the next few days, and with that comes a period of reflection for the majority of teams up and down the country. Some will be analysing how they’ve done and what players they’ve been able to bring in, whereas others will merely be interested in looking at ‘what could’ve been’ whilst also beginning their plans for the January window – despite the fact that the actual season hasn’t even begun yet.

Arsenal midfielder set for a late transfer window move 0

Posted on August 05, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Metro, Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey could be set to leave the north London club with less than a week until the transfer window shuts. The report suggests that both Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in signing the Wales international before transfer deadline next Thursday.

Contract talks dragging on

Ramsey is now in the last year of his Arsenal contract, therefore the midfielder could leave as a free agent next summer. Reportedly, talks have been ongoing between the midfielder’s representatives and the club for some time.

Arsenal full-back set to miss the start of the season 0

Posted on August 04, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the BBC, Arsenal’s Bosnia and Herzegovina full-back Sead Kolasinac will miss the first eight-ten weeks of the Premier League season through injury. The former Schalke star sustained the knee injury in the Gunners International Champions Cup clash with Chelsea on Wednesday.

The estimated timescale would see the Bosnian missed eight top-flight matches, two Europa League games and the third round of the League Cup. The news is a blow to the player and Gunners boss Unai Emery, who now has a dilemma on the left-hand side of his defence.
