On This Day In 2017: Arsenal miss out on UCL 0

Posted on May 21, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, but unfortunately, this one isn’t quite as favourable. Twelve months ago today Arsenal finished off their strong end to the Premier League season with a convincing 3-1 victory over Everton, but unfortunately, the Gunners missed out on a spot in the top four as a result of Liverpool running out 3-0 winners over Middlesbrough.

Arsene Wenger’s side needed to ensure that they bettered Liverpool’s result in order to stand any chance of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition, but for the first time in what felt like forever, they failed.

Arsenal’s interest in Buvač genuine 2

As you probably already know, Bosnian media outlet Pravda BL has reported that Liverpool assistant manager Željko Buvač is set to take over from Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager this summer, following his departure from Anfield. On the other hand, Liverpool maintain that the man manager Jürgen Klopp refers to as “The Brain” is only on temporary leave until the end of the season due to personal problems, and they expect him back at the club in the summer.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports report they understand that the Gunners’ interest in Buvač is genuine. It seems head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is keen on the (former?) Liverpool man, the man he once worked with at Borussia Dortmund.

While it’s somewhat unusual to look towards your Premier League rivals for a guiding light, that may be exactly what Arsenal need to do in order to summon the strength necessary to overcome Atletico Madrid tonight. They’ll head into their game in Spain tonight with the aggregate score being locked at 1-1, and with just 90 minutes separating them from a place in the UEFA Europa League final, they can’t afford any slip-ups.

According to reports from Bosnian publication Pravda BL, Liverpool assistant manager Zeljko Buvac could be the next Arsenal boss. There was a recent story that Buvac had left the Merseyside club. However, it has now been confirmed by the Liverpool Echo that the 56-year-old has been allowed leave until the end of the season for personal reasons.

The leave comes at a strange time considering that the Reds are facing Roma in a vital Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday night, although Klopp’s side does have a 5-2 lead from the first leg at Anfield.

Arsenal fans shouldn’t dwell on Oxlade-Chamberlain 0

On Wednesday night Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored an utterly remarkable goal for Liverpool as they ran out 3-0 winners over Premier League leaders Manchester City at Anfield. The goal, and the eventual victory means that the Reds are on the verge of reaching the UEFA Champions League semi-finals where they’ll likely come up against one of Bayern Munich, Barcelona or Real Madrid.

Should Arsenal fork out the money for Karim Benzema? 0

Posted on March 30, 2018 by Harry Kettle

It’s starting to look like Arsenal’s attention may be turning towards another French striker – this time by the name of Karim Benzema. The 30-year-old forward has been attracting interest from all over the globe throughout the majority of his career, but now, certain rumours are suggesting that the Gunners are locked in a battle with Liverpool as they attempt to secure his services this summer.

Benzema has always been a striker who people admire, yet is never considered to be in that elite class, which is similar to someone like Gonzalo Higuain. After spending 13 years of his life in his hometown of Lyon, Karim finally made the big switch to La Liga in 2009 in order to turn out for one of the greatest clubs in world football: Real Madrid.

Karim Benzema again linked with Arsenal move 0

It seems that Real Madrid may be willing to part company with France international forward Karim Benzema this summer, according to Spanish publication Don Balon. Arsenal has reportedly been interested in signing the striker for the last half a decade.

In fact, according to the media, Benzema has been on the verge of joining the north London club for the last ten transfer windows. Yet he is still in Madrid.

Real Madrid set to sell Benzema this summer

Benzema has been in the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo and at times Gareth Bale as well in recent seasons at the Bernabeu. In fact, Benzema has been considered an enabler for Ronaldo to score his huge haul of goals in recent campaigns.

Why Brendan Rodgers would be a bad decision for Arsenal 0

Posted on March 25, 2018 by Harry Kettle

The rumours regarding who will replace Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager have been heating up substantially over the last few months, which makes sense, given that the club have been on something of a downward spiral for a while now. Still, that doesn’t make some of the names linked with the job any less ridiculous, with Brendan Rodgers being at the very top of that pile.

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.

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.
