Raheem Sterling back on Arsenal radar 0

Posted on September 21, 2017 by Milos Markovic

Arsene Wenger remains the keen admirer of Raheem Sterling’s qualities and is reportedly thinking about going back for the Manchester City winger in January.

The Citizens are likely to use Wenger’s interest in the 22-year-old English international to leverage a deal for Alexis Sanchez as potential swap deal is already being mooted by the Mirror.

The Chilean star is unlikely to extend his deal with the north London club and although Wenger would rather not see him leave for Premier League rivals he will make sure to appease Arsenal fans with a respectable replacement.

Arsenal squeeze past Doncaster in the League Cup 0

Arsenal made it through to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 1-0 victory over Doncaster Rovers on Wednesday, with a Theo Walcott goal enough to ensure progress to the next round.

The visitors came close to taking the lead virtually straight from the kick-off. The ball was launched forward and Kongolo hit an effort from around 25 yards out that David Ospina had to get down low to save.

The home side went up the other end soon afterwards. Mohamed Elneny played the ball into the box for Theo Walcott. The winger beat his defender before attempting to fire back across Ian Lawlor, only for the Rovers goalkeeper to save the effort with his legs.

Things appear to be getting rather complicated in the Alexis Sanchez transfer saga.

The Chilean superstar had been pursued by Manchester City throughout the summer transfer window but the Citizens’ £60 million attempt ended up being unsuccessful since Arsenal failed to sign a replacement before the end of the window.

Pep Guardiola was left frustrated with Arsenal’s apparent incompetence and is expected to make a fresh approach in order to land the 28-year-old in January. However, the situation appears to has changed dramatically as the Manchester City boss is now facing competition from his fierce rival Jose Mourinho.

Gunners produced un-Arsenal like display to draw at Chelsea 0

I have to say going into yesterday’s London derby against champions Chelsea I did not fancy the Gunners to get the win. However, a draw was always achievable if Arsenal decided to abandon Arsene Wenger’s football philosophy.

I thought that was very unlikely, yet low and behold the Gunners produced a very solid, always perfect away performance to draw 0-0 with the champions. The only thing missing was a goal on the counter-attack, which Aaron Ramsey came so close to scoring, but hit the post.

Premier League club Arsenal are said to be plotting a January move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Lucas Moura.

The Gunners are apparently ready to reignite the long-standing spark and push for a move for the Brazilian star whose place in the team is coming under jeopardy.

The French giants are coming off from a big-spending summer.

They broke the world record to sign the Barcelona superstar Neymar and also boosted their squad with one of the hottest properties in European football, Kylian Mbappe. The French starlet joined PSG on a season-long loan with an option to buy.

Europa League win should lift Arsenal 0

Posted on September 15, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal are preparing to face London rivals and English champions at Stamford Bridge on Sunday lunchtime. No doubt, it is a very difficult game and one that could prove crucial to the Gunners season.

On paper, Arsenal look unlikely to win at Stamford Bridge and you would have to be a brave man to back the Gunners to emerge from south west London with a win. However, the performance of a weakened team in the second half of Thursday 3-1 win over Koln should give the visitors some encouragement.

Sanchez not sulking

Arsenal kicked off their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Koln on Thursday night. The kick-off was delayed by an hour due to crowd safety issues, but that mattered very little in the end to the Gunners, as they put in a strong second half display to see off the visitors.

The visitors scored with virtually the first attempt on goal on ten minutes. David Ospina rushed out of his goal to clear a long ball over the top, only for Bittencourt to find Cordoba, who lofted the ball back over the Colombian from around 40 yards out and into the net.

On Thursday night, Arsenal kick-off their Europa League campaign with a home game against Koln at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal last featured in the Europa League back in 2000 when it was known as the UEFA Cup. The Gunners reached the final that year only to beaten by Turkish outfit Galatasaray.

The team from north London have played their European football in the Champions League since that final appearance. In fact, the Gunners had dropped out of Europe’s elite competition into the Europa League that season.

Mesut Ozil contract talks break down, German genius set to leave Arsenal 0

Posted on September 13, 2017 by Milos Markovic

If reports coming from Germany are anything to go by, Mesut Ozil will pack his bags and leave Arsenal on a free transfer next summer.

German playmaker is in the final year of his deal with the north London club but it appears that negotiations over the contract extension have broken down and that Ozil has decided to walk away from Arsenal at the end of the season.

The 28-year-old has been one of the hottest transfer stories for months now as he is one of several Arsenal players nearing the end of their deal at the Emirates with the club actively trying to tie them down on new deals.
