Theo Walcott the right move for everybody involved 0

Posted on January 17, 2018 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott has completed a medical and agreed personal with Everton ahead of a £20million move to Merseyside.

Former club Southampton were also reportedly interested in signing the winger. However, it seems that the 28-year-old will be plying his trade on Merseyside in the near future.

Surplus to requirements at Arsenal

There is no question that Walcott is surplus to requirements at Arsenal. The fact that he has failed to start a Premier League game this season illustrates that perfectly. He was a regular in the cup competitions in Arsene Wenger’s fringe teams.

Gunners are said to be preparing a January bid for Hoffenheim central midfielder Kerem Demirbay in an effort to beat competition to the signature of the 24-year-old German international.

Borussia Dortmund product is attracting plenty of interest from around Europe with Serie A giants AC Milan and Premier League outfit Everton thought to be monitoring the highly-rated Hoffenheim star.

Milan have already been linked with Demirbay in the past and are expected to reignite their interest despite the ongoing problems with Financial Fair Play, following the high-spending summer.

On Sunday afternoon, West Brom host Arsenal at the Hawthorns in the Premier League, as both sides look to chalk up vital points.

West Brom are currently in the thick of the relegation dogfight. The Baggies are second from bottom in the top-flight table but are just three points away from the safety of 17th place.

The home side have failed to win any of their last 18 Premier League games after a goalless home draw with Everton last time out. The Baggies have failed to win in their last nine home games in the top-flight.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are interested in signing Sevilla’s defensive midfielder Steven N’Zonzi. The 28-year-old has reportedly travelled to London with speculation rife that he could be returning to the English top-flight in January.

N’Zonzi first appeared in English football under Everton boss Sam Allardyce at Blackburn. Reports suggest that the Toffees may well be interested in signing the midfield enforcer.

Impressed in Sevilla

N’Zonzi impressed during his time in the heart of the Blackburn midfield and moved on to Stoke City. However, the defensive midfielder enjoyed an underwhelming three years in the Potteries.

Arsenal fought their way past a spirited Swansea side on Saturday as they ended October with a win.

Sam Clucas’ early goal was cancelled out by goals from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey, with the Gunners able to show their own fighting spirit by battling back from a goal down to win 2-1.

The victory means they move onto 19 points, three clear of Liverpool in sixth and just a point behind Tottenham in third. It is incredible to think they were in an apparent crisis a few weeks ago.

Arsenal v Swansea Premier League Preview 2

Posted on October 27, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal will look to continue their recent decent run of form on Saturday afternoon, as they welcome Swansea to the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have won four of their last six Premier League outings. Last time out in the Premier League, Arsene Wenger’s side hammered struggling Everton 5-2 at Goodison Park after the dismissal of Toffees midfielder Idrissa ‘Gana’ Gueye.

The win means that Arsenal are only behind fourth-place Chelsea on goal difference in the table. One major positive for the Gunners in recent seasons has been their home record. The team from north London are unbeaten at the Emirates in 11 Premier League games, having recorded ten victories, while also winning their last nine home games.

Nacho Monreal Arsenal’s unsung hero 1

Posted on October 26, 2017 by David Nugent

It took a while for Spanish international defender Nacho Monreal to nail down a first-team spot at Arsenal. He had to job share at left-back with Kieran Gibbs for a relatively long period.

However, Monreal is now one of the Gunners unsung heroes. The Spaniard may have made an error against Everton in the 5-2 win at Goodison Park in the Gunners last Premier League game, but apart from that mistake, he has barely put a foot wrong this season for a player playing out of position.

Arsenal host Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup fourth round, as the Gunners look to avoid a potential banana skin.

The north London side head into the clash in good spirits after a 5-2 win at Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. The win came on the back of unconvincing performances and results against Watford and Crvena Zvezda.

Despite some disappointing displays of late, the Gunners have a very good home record at the Emirates Stadium. In fact, Arsene Wenger’s side have won their last 11 competitive games on home soil.

Is Aaron Ramsey set to return to top form? 0

Posted on October 23, 2017 by David Nugent

Aaron Ramsey seems to cause mixed opinions amongst Arsenal fans. For Wales, he seems to be a star player and vital to the Dragons fortunes. At Arsenal though, he has flattered to deceive at times and inconsistency has plagued his career.

However, of late Ramsey has upped his game for the north London side. In Sunday’s 5-2 win at Everton, the Welsh midfielder contributed a goal and an assist. Ramsey has now scored twice and provided three assists in eight appearances for the Gunners this season.

Has shown his talent in flashes
