Arsenal dealt injury blow ahead of their clash with Everton 0

Posted on October 19, 2017 by Ben Darvill

Arsenal are in huge need of a much-needed win over Everton at the weekend following their awful 2-1 defeat at the hands of Watford.

The Gunners currently sit in sixth place in the league with 13 points, and they are already nine points behind Manchester City at the top. Following a good run of form where they were unbeaten following a 4-0 loss to Liverpool on August 27th, they somehow conspired to waste all of their gathered momentum in classic Arsenal style.

Arsenal struggling to sell unwanted players 1

Posted on August 01, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are struggling to get rid of some of their unwanted stars this summer because of their high salaries.

The Gunners have a number of players that they are looking to sell this summer. The likes of Jack Wilshere, Lucas Perez, Kieran Gibbs, David Ospina, Mathieu Debuchy, Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers are all seemingly surplus to requirement in north London.

The players seem happy to leave the club, as they are unlikely to feature heavily for the first-team next season.
However, there seems to be one major sticking point for their exit, their high salaries at the Emirates Stadium. The players seem unwilling to take a pay-cut, even if it means regular action elsewhere in the Premier League.

Arsenal continue their preseason with the Emirates Cup that will this season see Premier League giants play host to the likes of Benfica, Sevilla and RB Leipzig.

This year’s edition of the tournament will be the ninth in total. The tournament will take place at the Emirates Stadium over the forthcoming weekend with all four teams playing twice.

The Emirates Cup precedes the Community Shield match and comes as a perfect opportunity for Gunners to gear up for the match against Premier League champions on 6 August.

Gunners reject bid from Palace for Calum Chambers 0

According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal have rejected a bid of around £16million from Premier League rivals Crystal Palace for young defender Calum Chambers. However, the reports also suggest that the Gunners are willing to sell the highly rated young defender, but are looking for a fee of closer to £20million.

Chambers has Potential

I have to say I do rate Chambers and it is hard to doubt his talent. However, he maybe needs to play more first-team football before he is ready to play first-team football at Arsenal.

Should Calum Chambers leave Arsenal this summer? 0

Last season young Arsenal defender Calum Chambers found himself loaned out to Middlesbrough, who were eventually relegated from the Premier League.

The young defender was one of Boro’s most consistent players though and the north east side’s defensive record was not the problem. They went down because they were toothless in attack. Chambers and Ben Gibson formed a very good centre-back pair.

Chambers made 24 appearances for Boro, despite being injured for some of the campaign. His performances suggest that the 22-year-old is now ready to play regular first team football in the top-flight.

Will Calum Chambers be sent out on loan again next season? 0

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers returned to his parent club after a season-long loan at Middlesbrough but could be on his way out of the club on a temporary basis again, with Premier League returnees Newcastle United linked, according to Gazette Live.

The 22-year-old made 24 Premier League appearances for Boro last season , scoring one goal and making one assist. Despite a number of impressive performances, he was unable to keep the North-East side in the top-flight and will be keen to avoid a repeat if loaned out to another newly-promoted outfit in 2017/18.

Holding and Chambers make the England squad for this summer’s U21 Championships 0

Arsenal’s defensive duo Rob Holding and Calum Chambers have both been called up by England manager Aidy Bothroyd for the U21 Championships in Poland. The full list of names can be read here.

Holding, signed from Bolton for £2m last summer, spent a large part of his debut season out of the Arsenal first-team but was recalled successfully with a series of impressive performances before the campaign came to a close.

The 21-year-old, who has made five appearances for the England U21 team, ended up making nine Premier League starts for the Gunners, winning seven, drawing one and losing one. His form late-season even led to him signing a new deal at the club.

Can Arsenal now challenge for the Premier League title? 0

With the summer transfer window now closed, it seems an apt time to look at Arsenal’s summer business. The Gunners left it late to bring in striker Lucas Perez from Deportivo and Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia, but they got the deals over the line in the end.

Most Arsenal fans would say it’s about time the Gunners made some fresh additions to their squad, but do the new signings make Arsenal more likely Premier League title contenders.

Why the delay in strengthening?

My big question is why did Arsene Wenger not bring these players in earlier in the summer and the Gunners may not have had such a mixed start to the season.

Calum Chambers will benefit from loan spell 0

On Tuesday Arsenal’s young defender Calum Chambers joined Middlesbrough on a season-long loan deal. A loan move for the youngster was mooted when it became apparent that the Gunners were on the verge of signing Germany centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.

Mustafi has now completed his big money move to north London from Valencia and that freed Chambers up to make a temporary move.

Youngster needs to play games

When Calum Chambers first arrived at Arsenal from Southampton for a fee in the region of £16million two years ago he was regarded as one for the future. However, he impressed in his first couple of months at the club, which in a way worked against him and raised expectations.

Calum Chambers loaned to Middlesbrough 0

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers will be joining Middlesbrough on a season-long loan, according to the latest reports, and the news has been well received by the supporters.

The English starlet was going to have a tough task of securing regular playing time at the Emirates following the capture of Shkodran Mustafi, especially with summer recruit Rob Holding also in front of him in the pecking order.

And seeing as how Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker will eventually recover from injury, everybody at the club was happy to see Chambers join Aitor Karanka’s high-flying side.
