Would David Luiz be a good signing? 0

Posted on June 15, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While the focus of football fans around the globe is currently on Russia as the World Cup continues, you could argue that this is going to be one of the most exciting summer transfer windows in recent memory. Several high profile names have jumped ship already in the last few weeks, and as we look ahead to the next few months, it seems like Arsenal could well be one of the most active teams in Europe.

Arsenal still in for Seri 0

Arsenal are still interested in OGC Nice’s Jean-Michael Seri, according to Sky Sports. The man said to be behind the club’s ambition to sign the midfielder is Raul Sanllehi. The current Head of Football Relations at Arsenal once upon a time tried to secure his services for Barcelona.

Seri is, however, just one on the list of names being considered at the moment. As it stands, he would be available for a price of £35million, which is pretty reasonable given the way the football transfer market has been evolving since Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for around £200million last summer.

While the dust is only just starting to settle in regards to the 2017/18 Premier League season, we’re already extremely invested in seeing what’s going to go down next year – which is hardly a surprise. Sure, the World Cup is going to keep us occupied for a few months, but the consistency and the drama of domestic football is something that is always going to capture our hearts and attention.

On This Day In 2017: Arsenal lift the FA Cup 0

Posted on May 27, 2018 by Harry Kettle

While Arsenal haven’t exactly been successful in the Premier League in the last few years, they’ve managed to find some success in the FA Cup. As we take another trip down memory lane, it’s time to look at the last big trophy victory for Arsene Wenger before he rode off into the sunset this season.

This time last year, Arsenal fans were celebrating a huge 2-1 victory over Chelsea in a game which many weren’t expecting them to win. The Gunners, while successful in the FA Cup on many different occasions, were considered to be the underdogs – and in many ways, that probably favoured them. It felt like the Blues came in with an aura of overconfidence as if they were just naturally expecting to win the trophy without too much effort.

It’s time for another trip down memory lane, and this time, it’s a little bit more positive. We’re going to be talking about a game from seven years ago today, which saw Arsenal give themselves a glimmer of hope in the race to become Champions of England. The location was Emirates Stadium, and the game in question saw the Gunners host the eventual league champions Manchester United in what proved to be a tight yet scintillating encounter in North London.

Would Arsenal fans reject Conte? 0

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is on the way out, and because of that, the rumours have begun regarding who will replace the Frenchman as manager. After more than two decades of the same man being in charge many fans are wondering whether or not the club will go for a different change of pace this time around, but if this specific man is put in charge, you could argue he’d implement the same kind of style that Wenger did for many years.

How important would Diego Costa’s absence be? 0

Posted on April 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Rumours in football can either create excitement or dread, depending on the nature of the specific rumour. Thankfully for Arsenal fans, this specific ‘rumour’ is a little bit more substantial than most, with Daily Mirror reporting that Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa may not be fit for their UEFA Europa League semi-final first-leg game against Arsenal. Yes, it’s the same Diego Costa that once played for Chelsea and was vilified for being the sport’s equivalent of a supervillain.

Should Cesc Fabregas return to Arsenal? 1

Posted on March 28, 2018 by Harry Kettle

There are plenty of rumours surrounding players from around the world potentially coming to Arsenal, but none will strike a chord as much as this story involving Cesc Fabregas. Apparently, according to the man himself, he’d consider returning to the Emirates as a coach once his playing days are over – and while that’s all well and good, we’d be curious to see whether or not he’d entertain the idea of something more.

A murky road

Another twist in the Thomas Tuchel saga 0

Posted on March 27, 2018 by David Nugent

It seems that Arsenal are one of the main characters in the ‘Where will Thomas Tuchel be managing next season’ saga. Recent reports from the German media really confused the situation surrounding the talented boss.

One German media organisation claimed that Tuchel had signed a deal with Arsenal, while another completely contradicted its competitor saying that Tuchel is more likely to move to Paris.

Bayern the preferred option for Tuchel

Now according to Sky Sports, the former Dortmund boss’ most likely destination this summer is German giants Bayern Munich. The move would be an understandable one for Tuchel.

Arsenal linked with a move for Atletico ‘keeper 0

Posted on March 26, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal and Chelsea are set to go head-to-head this summer to sign Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The Slovenian international has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in European football in the past few seasons. The stopper has a release clause of £88million in his contract and Atletico are not likely to let him go without a fight.

On Arsenal’s wanted list

The Express claims that Oblak is on the wanted list of both London clubs as they look to add to their goalkeeping options. The Gunners are claimed to have scouted Oblak on a number of occasions.
