Posted on February 27, 2017 by David Nugent

According to Italian publication Calciomercato, Arsenal are set to make a move for Inter and Croatia attacking midfielder Ivan Perisic in the summer.

The Croatian international has frequently been linked with moves to the Premier League in the past with the likes of Chelsea and Everton mooted as possible destinations for the former Wolfsburg star.

The Italian media claim that Inter rated Perisic in the region of £29.5million. The star only cost the Nerazzurri £16million when he arrived in 2015.

Impressive for club and country

Wenger demands unity after title-race setback 0

Posted on February 11, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called for his side to be united against Hull City this afternoon after falling 12 points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea last weekend. The Gunners came unstuck to their London rivals at Stamford Bridge the previous Saturday and they are all but out of the title-race for another season as a result. Currently fourth in the Premier League with 47 points from 24 games, Arsenal risk dropping out of the Champions League places this weekend if fifth-placed Liverpool or sixth-placed Manchester United better their result.

Does Petr Cech have anything to prove ahead of Hull City meeting? 0

Posted on February 11, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech should start in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Hull City, but he’ll be feeling he needs a good performance to put last week out of his head. The veteran shot-stopper didn’t have the best homecoming at Stamford Bridge when he lined up against former employers Chelsea on Saturday, and in truth has been picking the ball out of his net all too often in recent weeks.

The defeat leaves Arsenal fourth in the Premier League and the Gunners are now 12 points behind league leaders Chelsea in the table. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to rule his team out of the title race, but winning the league now looks beyond the side from north London.

Bosnia international and Schalke left-back Sead Kolasinac is in hot demand as his contract with the Bundesliga outfit nears its end.

The 23-year-old is set to become a free agent at the end of the season and the clubs are lining up behind the highly-rated defender with Juventus and Chelsea believed to be leading the pack.

Premier League leaders were heavily linked with Kolasinac in January as the Blues attempted to push through a move in the winter, but Schlake decided to hold on to the player until his contract instead of trying to cash in on him.

Posted on February 07, 2017 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are set to make a sensational summer move for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.

The forward has is out-of-favour with City boss Pep Guardiola and the Catalan boss has benched the Argentinian striker for the last two games. Brazilian starlet Gabriel Jesus has started in Aguero’s place and has made a big impression.

Aguero is now rumoured to be unhappy with the Citizens and ready to move on in the summer. However, Arsenal are unlikely to be the only interested club in acquiring Aguero’s services, with the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid also being linked with a move for the striker.

Surely this has to be Wenger’s last season at Arsenal? 3

Arsene Wenger is an Arsenal legend there is no doubt about it. However, there comes a time in every manager’s time at a club when he has stayed too long. Unfortunately for Wenger it seems he has reached that time.

Insanity was once described by Albert Einstein as doing something over and over again and expecting different results. That is what Arsenal have been doing for nearly a decade.

Wenger never learns from his mistakes

Mesut Ozil struggling to make an impact for Arsenal in recent weeks 0

Posted on February 06, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil under-performed as the Gunners fell short to Chelsea in Saturday’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge. The German international was singled out by many for a poor showing this weekend and hasn’t been at his best for some time.

Ozil has scored and created just two goals in his last seven Premier League appearances, and has been on the losing side in four of the games. The Gunners have scored one or less goals in five of the seven outings, and their dip in form could somewhat be attributed to Ozil’s below-par showings.

Hector Bellerin recovering well after suffering concussion 0

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is said to have recovered well after picking up concussion in Saturday’s defeat to Chelsea. The Spanish international was struck in the head by Marcos Alonso after challenging the Chelsea wing-back in the air, but came off worse and had to come off after 17 minutes.

Alonso apologised to Bellerin after the game, and despite the Arsenal right-back looking dazed and confused on the floor at the time of the incident, he’s suffered no serious lasting effects. The 21-year-old has hardly featured for the Gunners in recent weeks due to injuries but could return to face Hull City on Saturday.

Olivier Giroud ends 11-game wait for a goal against Chelsea 0

Posted on February 05, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud came off the bench and scored in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Premier League leaders Chelsea, ending an 11-game goal drought against the Blues in all competitions. The French international has been on the winning side only twice in the head-to-heads with Chelsea, but has finally got a monkey off his back by registering at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Giroud was dropped for Saturday’s clash for Alexis Sanchez but responded in the best way by scoring after being introduced in the second-half. He’s enjoyed a fantastic season for goals, netting eight times in 658 minutes in the Premier League, but still cannot nail down a starting place for a prolonged period. The 30-year-old has made only six league starts but is proving to be a super-sub.
