Arsenal eying up RB Leipzig goalkeeper 0

Posted on March 22, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to rival Chelsea and Atletico Madrid to sign RB Leipzig’s Hungarian goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi this summer.

Question marks remain about Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech, who form has declined in the past few seasons. Cech’s poor form has led to the Gunners reportedly looking elsewhere for a replacement. It seems that Gulacsi has joined Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno on the list of possible goalkeeping arrivals this summer.

Gulacsi may seem familiar

The name Peter Gulasci may seem familiar to some Premier League fans, as the 27-year-old was once at Liverpool. However, he struggled for first-team action with Spanish goalkeeper Pepe Reina blocking his path to first team football.

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.

Arsenal and Liverpool are Premier League twins 0

As we approach the end of the season it’s always interesting to look back and reflect on what’s gone down in the world of football since the campaign began back in August. There have been surprising transfers, last minute winners and controversies galore, but one thing has remained the same – Arsenal and Liverpool continue to mirror each other in every single way.

For years now the Gunners and the Reds have been seen as veterans in the ranks of the top four, with both achieving UEFA Champions League qualification year in and year out. But, almost in unison, they’ve both fallen victim to complacency in recent times which has led many fans to believe that they’re no longer the powerhouses they once were.

As reported by Mirror Online, it may not be just AC Milan that Arsenal have to deal with tonight – because, in addition to that, it appears as if they’re also going to have to try and overcome the unluckiness of their blue away kit.


Yes, you heard that correctly. While the Gunners may be one of the most iconic teams in English football, their current slide hasn’t gone unnoticed – and apparently, neither has their form when wearing their striking away kit.

Highly-rated Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure revealed three Premier League clubs are interested in signing him, while he also stated his preference which is set to be music to Arsenal fans’ ears.

Doucoure appeared on a French talk show Telefoot where he was subjected to a series of questions dealing with his future at Watford.

The 25-year-old is enjoying a scintillating season with Watford despite Hornets’ underwhelming Premier League form which currently sees them sitting in 11th place in the standings.

Liverpool are reportedly prepared to match Jack Wilshere’s current contract with fellow Premier League side Arsenal as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds try to lure the English-midfielder away from London.

The Emirates Stadium was treated to a feast of attacking football on Saturday as Arsenal returned to winning ways with a superb performance. Everton were blown away in a 5-1 win for the Gunners as they displayed their immense attacking ability.

Aaron Ramsey was the hero as he struck a hat-trick, while Laurent Koscielny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed the scoring on a day of outstanding home debuts with Henrikh Mkhitaryan shining and picking up a number of assists.

On Saturday evening, Arsenal host Everton in the Premier League at the Emirates Stadium. The omens are good for a home victory, as the Toffees have been easy prey for the Gunners in recent seasons.

In fact, the side from north London have won 16 of their last 20 home games in all competitions, which is a fantastic record for the Gunners against any team.

The Merseysiders have caused Arsene Wenger’s problems at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture in recent campaigns. However, on home soil, Arsenal have enjoyed close to total domination.

Liverpool draw sums Arsenal up 0

Arsenal’s Friday night 3-3 draw with Liverpool may have been a great watch for neutrals, but for fans of both teams, it summed up why they will not be winning a big trophy this season. For Arsenal, it perfectly summed up their struggles in recent seasons.

The bad side of Arsenal

Arsenal’s display against Liverpool showed the good and bad of the Gunners. The bad aspect was the team’s poor defensive displays, which sporadically appeared throughout each season for Arsenal.

In truth, it could have been much worse for Arsenal, especially when Laurent Koscielny put Mohamed Salah through on goal, only for Petr Cech to bail his team out.

On Friday night, Arsenal and Liverpool drew 3-3 at the Emirates Stadium in a highly entertaining affair.

Arsenal had the first effort on goal after five minutes. Alexis Sanchez’s effort looped into the air before midfielder Granit Xhaka fired wide of goal. The visitors produced their first real threat on the home goal on 12 minutes, as Sadio Mane’s effort deflects off Roberto Firmino and goes straight into Petr Cech’s arms.

Liverpool experienced an injury blow on 13 minutes when midfielder Jordan Henderson sustained a knock and had to be replaced by James Milner. Mohamed Salah fired an effort off target soon afterwards.

Arsenal cannot beat Liverpool unless they make the right midfield choices 1

In the last Premier League meeting between Arsenal and Liverpool, there was a gulf in class of epic proportions between the old rivals. Liverpool’s 4-0 win displayed just how good the Reds can be going forward, while it once again revealed that Arsenal’s defence was simply not good enough.

Arsenal’s back-three were exposed as they put in one of the worst defensive performances the fans will have likely seen from their team. Time and time again, the three centre-halves were beaten in the air, the wing-backs were caught dreaming of going forward, while the team’s possession play was about as un-Arsenal as many have ever seen it.
