Could Thomas Tuchel work out at Arsenal? 0

Posted on March 26, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The rumours linking Thomas Tuchel to Arsenal have been going on for a while now, but it seems as if they’re starting to gain even more traction. The German is widely expected to succeed Arsene Wenger once his two-decade-long tenure finally comes to an end, and it’s interesting from an outsider’s perspective to analyse whether this really is the best course of action.

There’s no doubting that it’s a name football purists will be excited about, given that he’s been making some noise over in Germany for the better part of 10 years. If you aren’t aware of what’s been going on in the Bundesliga, however, then there’s a very good chance that Thomas Tuchel is nothing more than a name to you.

The two faces of Mesut Ozil – Germany and Arsenal 0

Mesut Ozil is and always has been a polarising figure following his initial move to the Emirates. At first, his transfer was seen as a groundbreaking moment for the club as they were able to lure a world-class superstar to their team. Since then, however, a perceived lack of effort in addition to some inconsistent displays have left many to wonder whether or not the German is still a player of an extremely high calibre.

Arsenal show interest in goalkeeper Bernd Leno 0

Posted on March 20, 2018 by Harry Kettle

As reported by The Sun, Arsenal are supposedly interested in securing the signing of highly rated German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The Gunners are believed to be the favourites in the race to acquire the 24-year-old’s signature, in a move that would likely cost them around £25 million. This is the latest in a string of rumours surrounding the North London club as we head towards the summer transfer window, although this is one of the first regarding a non-attacking position.

Mertesacker reveals stress involved with playing for Arsenal 0

German defender Per Mertesacker has been a rock at the heart of Arsenal’s defence ever since joining the club, but now, it seems as if the 33-year-old is just about ready to hang up his boots due to the stress involved with playing the beautiful game.

During an interview with magazine Der Spiegel, Mertesacker made a handful of somewhat startling comments regarding what it feels like to play at this level. The 2014 World Cup winner and former Werder Bremen star has been at the Emirates since 2011 and has made well over 150 appearances for the North London club.

With club football out of the way and international matches in full swing there is only little you can choose from to follow during this dreary fortnight.

You can, however, always choose to surprise yourself and others by supporting England.

The Three Lions have secured qualification to World Cup in Russia and will not have to worry about play-offs unlike some other countries which means we too can relax and watch our boys in action with some top nations over the next couple of days.

Did Arsenal make a mistake by selling Serge Gnabry? 0

Posted on December 30, 2016 by David Nugent

Arsenal have been famous for developing young players in the last two decades under French boss Arsene Wenger. However, there are some youngsters that have had to leave the club to prove their worth elsewhere.

A youngster who left Arsenal just last summer has been impressing in the Bundesliga for Werder Bremen. That youngster is Serge Gnabry. The 21-year-old left the Gunners for a fee of just £6million in the summer.

He has since gone on to score seven goals in 15 appearances for Werder and scoring a hat-trick on his international debut for Germany in an 8-0 drubbing of San Marino

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has played down injury fears from supporters after he was substituted for Germany in Tuesday night’s win over Northern Ireland. The 27-year-old was brought off at half-time for Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan, but took to Twitter after the game to refute any suggestions of injury.

A number of Arsenal players were on international duty this week with vital World Cup qualifiers taking place all over the world. Here is how the Gunners on international duty got on:

Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi were in the Germany squad for their squad against Norway and Finland. Both featured for the reigning world champions.

Mustafi played the full 90 minutes in a 2-0 win over Finland but had to have treatment on an ankle problem and was then an unused sub for Die Mannschaft’s 3-0 win over Norway in their first World Cup qualifier.

Mustafi deal stalls as Valencia and Arsenal fail to agree on a fee 3

According to the Mirror, Arsenal’s pursuit for Valencia defender Shkodran Mustafi has hit an obstacle with the Gunners yet to match the asking price. The German centre-back is believed to have agreed personal terms with Arsenal, but the London outfit are still quarrelling with Valencia over price.

Reports from the Valencia camp suggest Arsenal are unrivalled in their pursuit for Mustafi, but just need to match Los Che’s valuation for the centre-back. Valencia are rumoured to be looking for €25M (£21.7M) which is a fair price for an international standard player regularly playing in the Spanish La Liga, but Arsenal have yet to meet the fee.

Arsenal targeting Mustafi as Mertesacker replacement 0

Posted on July 27, 2016 by Crippy Cooke

According to Italian football journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, Arsenal have contacted Valencia over the availability of defender Shkodran Mustafi as manager Arsene Wenger looks to find a replacement for injured centre-back Per Mertesacker.

Mustafi, a Germany international, was a regular in the Valencia backline last season, making 30 Spanish La Liga appearances, but could be convinced to make the switch to title-chasing Arsenal with how poor Los Che fared in La Liga.
