Would Ross Barkley be a worthwhile signing for Arsenal? 0

Posted on June 22, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Metro, Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all interested in signing Everton playmaker Ross Barkley this summer.

With the futures of attacking midfielders Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in doubt, a new attacking midfielder may well be on Arsenal’s shopping list this summer.

Highly-rated but highly inconsistent

When Ross Barkley first broke into the Everton first-team, he was hailed as the future England number ten. However, things have not quite turned out like that for the Wavertree-born star.

Premier League giants Arsenal have officially unveiled their new home shirt for the 2017/18 season.

Arsenal legends such as Robert Pires and martin Keown took part in club’s new kit launch that promotes Arsenal’s traditional red and white strip with a little twist to the socks that are a bit different with a streak of red fading into white.

Predominant red colour appears to be a bit darker than usual, whereas kit manufacturers Puma have decided to lose the touch of black around the collar which was present last season. The new stylish edition features white collaring and truly is a mixture of traditional and modern.

Arsenal open contract extension talks with Aaron Ramsey 0

North London club Arsenal have opened negotiations with midfielder Aaron Ramsey over contract extension in an attempt to tie down one of key first-team players and avoid any possible uncertainty next year.

Aaron Ramsey is one of many players whose contract expires in the summer of 2019 and the Gunners have moved forward in a bid to avoid any potential departure of the Welsh international on free transfer next year.

According to The Telegraph, Aaron Ramsey is set to be offered a bumper new deal by Arsenal that would allow him to retain his position as one of the club’s highest earners with wages in excess of £100,000 a week.

Why aren’t Arsenal interested in Aubameyang? 3

Posted on June 21, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang could be on his way to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, with the Ligue 1 runners-up currently unopposed to procuring his signature. The likes of Manchester City and Arsenal were linked at times last season but talk has gone cold on a potential move to the Emirates Stadium. Why is that?

Aubameyang has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe in the last two seasons. In 2015/16, he scored 39 goals in all competitions for Dortmund. In 2016/17, the Gabon international netted 40 goals. He’s reportedly valued at around £60m, £30m shy of the bid Arsenal were believed to have lodged for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, so why aren’t the Gunners making an approach?

Would any of Arsenal’s strikers get into a top-six team? 0

Posted on June 20, 2017 by David Nugent

I was pondering the other day whether any of Arsenal’s strikers would get into any of their top-six rivals teams. When I say strikers, for the sake of argument take Chilean Alexis Sanchez out of the mix, as he does not always get used as a central striker.

That leaves us with Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Lucas Perez. The only one out of that trio who has not been linked with a summer move is Welbeck.

Rivals have better strikers

Arsenal told to improve bid for Juventus star 0

North London club Arsenal have set their sights on Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado.

The Gunners are thought to have already submitted an offer for former Chelsea player and Colombia international, who made 30 Serie A appearances for the Italian champions last season.

According to reports from The Sun, Juventus have rejected Arsenal’s £17 million approach for the 29-year-old, who is also a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

The Champions League finalists Juventus are believed to be holding out for £30 million for their player as Arsenal are told to cough up if they want to land the Colombia international.

Who would be a better signing for Arsenal, Mahrez or Rodriguez? 2

Posted on June 11, 2017 by David Nugent

As we all know Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not like putting his hand in his pocket when it comes to spending the clubs money. Last summer he did spend big money on Shkodran Mustafi and Granit Xhaka.

However, the rumour mill has now well and truly kicked in and Arsenal are being linked with some top players. Two of those players are Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez and Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, who would both no doubt add something to the Gunners team for next season.

Would reportedly cost similar fees

Should Arsenal renew their interest in Alvaro Morata? 1

Posted on June 08, 2017 by David Nugent

As always we are set for a whole host of transfer talk and probably little activity at Arsenal if Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has his way anyway.

Arsenal needs to strengthen this summer in a number of departments. For me, a new striker is still needed. It looks likely that Alexis Sanchez may leave and Spaniard Lucas Perez also seems set for the exit door.

That leaves Arsenal with Olivier Giroud and the fragile Danny Welbeck as striking options for next season. One option that could be available is Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard has been linked with a move to north London before and speculation is rife that he will leave the European champions this summer.

Alexis Sanchez is leaving Arsenal and it’s only matter of choice 2

Posted on June 08, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Arsenal contract rebel Alexis Sanchez is set for summer exit amidst contrasting claims regarding his future with Gunners.

Arsene Wenger is confident the Chilean star would remain at Arsenal next season, but such belief rests on restless ground with latest reports coming from a respected Spanish journalist Gerard Romero who shed a new light on Sanchez’s future.

Romero claims Sanchez is set to join Manchester City ‘in the coming days’ and the Citizens have been installed as 6/4 favourites to land the Arsenal star.

Arsene Wenger to be given £100m war chest 0

Posted on June 01, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Arsene Wenger signing a new two-year deal at Arsenal has firmly split the public opinion down the middle.

And while Wenger’s supporters will be quick to heap praise on Arsenal board and tap the club official on the back, critics will be cursing their faith. The club however is thought to be preparing a plan to win more votes to the ‘In’ party with a reported £100 million transfer kitty which would be presented to Arsenal boss ahead of this summer’s transfer window.

The Gunners are expected to invest heavily into bolstering their squad in the upcoming market.
