Should Arsenal pursue an interest in Malcom? 0

Posted on July 19, 2018 by David Nugent

According to a report from Sky Sports yesterday, Everton are in advanced talks to sign Bordeaux’s highly-rated young winger Malcom for an initial fee of around £30million-plus add-ons.

There have since been conflicting reports over the Toffees bid for the youngster. Some reports suggest that the Merseysiders are not interested, while others indicate that they could advance the deal with a meeting later today.

Malcom was linked with Arsenal

Last season the Brazilian starlet was linked with a big-money move to Arsenal. Reports France indicates that Bordeaux refused to sell the youngster in January, but told him that he could move this summer if the price is right.

Chelsea consider re-signing Petr Cech 0

According to Sky Sports, Chelsea are considering re-signing Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech this summer, as current Blues number one Thibaut Courtois looks set for a move to Real Madrid.

The move would seem a strange one, but Cech was only ousted from the Chelsea team due to Courtois being such a promising and highly-rated player.

Cech is a Chelsea hero

The veteran goalkeeper is a true Chelsea hero, having spent 11 years with the Blues before making a move across the capital to join Arsenal in 2015. While he has endured mixed fortunes in north London, Cech enjoyed an incredible career at Stamford Bridge.

Is Richard Keys right about Thierry Henry? 1

Posted on May 07, 2018 by Harry Kettle

For those of you who don’t know who Richard Keys is, he’s the fella who was involved in the sexism scandal with Andy Gray a few years back – and since then, he’s proven himself to be about as uninspiring and out of the loop as you could ever hope to be. Alas, his recent comments on Twitter have caused quite a commotion as he took it upon himself to criticise Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for not being present at Arsene Wenger’s final home game in charge of the club.

Enrique and Allegri the favourites for the Arsenal job 1

Former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and current Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, according to Sky Sports.

Wenger enjoyed a good send-off in his last home game of the season on Sunday, as the Gunners hammered Burnley. The clubs hierarchy has no doubt made moves behind the scenes to seek a quality replacement for Wenger.

Both winners at the top level

Enrique and Allegri are both proven winners at the top level of football. Barcelona won virtually every club trophy under Enrique, while Juventus have continued to dominate Serie A under Allegri. The Bianconeri also always do well in the Champions League.

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.

Could Arsenal finally sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this month? 1

Posted on January 16, 2018 by David Nugent

Arsenal have reportedly been on the trail of Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang for the past few years. The national and international media have informed us in the past that the Gunners were set to sign the striker on a number of occasions.

However, it seems that the Gunners are optimistic about signing the striker this month, according to Sky Sports Spanish football expert Guillem Balague. He told Sky Sports: “It’s clear that Arsenal are in conversations with the player (Aubameyang) and Borussia Dortmund.

“They think they’ve convinced the player to join Arsenal, but of course there’s still a big obstacle to beat, which is: Borussia Dortmund.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan would be a good signing for Arsenal 0

Posted on January 15, 2018 by David Nugent

The likes of Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester United are close to signing Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in a deal worth £35million. However, there is also the possibility of the Red Devils using Armenian playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan as part of the deal.

The Armenian international playmaker would be a good addition to the Gunners squad, especially as the club from north London could have lost Sanchez on a free in the summer.

Mkhitaryan out of favour at United

Mkhitaryan has fallen out of favour at Manchester United. The playmaker struggled to make an impression last season in his debut campaign with the Red Devils after his big money move in the summer of 2016.

Arsenal contract issue an ideal situation, says Wenger 0

Posted on July 31, 2017 by David Nugent

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Gunners current situation with a number of players contracts expiring in 12 months’ time is ‘an ideal situation’.

Players including Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Santi Cazorla are all in the last 12 months of their deals with the north London club.

Obviously, the most well-publicised player on that list is Sanchez, who Wenger insists is staying at the club despite doubts over his future. The Chilean and Ozil have both turned down offers of lucrative new contracts in north London.

Alexis Sanchez stories will not go away 0

It seems the stories about Alexis Sanchez will just not go away at the moment. The latest story reported by Sky Sports suggests that French club PSG are set to bid around £35million for the Chilean star.

Sanchez’s future at Arsenal has been in doubt for some time, as the 28-year-old has just 12 months left on his contract with the north London club.

A number of British media outlets are also reporting that the French club are set to sign Barcelona and Brazil forward Neymar in a deal worth £195million this summer.

Wenger has stated Sanchez will not leave this summer

Maybe Arsenal should cash in on Kieran Gibbs 0

Posted on July 22, 2017 by David Nugent

Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs was a player that looked to have so much promise when he first broke into the Gunners first-team. However, a mixture of injury problems and a loss of form saw him struggle for first team last season.

There are now doubts over the England international’s future at the club after he was omitted from the Gunners squad for their preseason tour of Australia and China.

According to Sky Sports, West Brom have seen a £10million bid for the full-back rejected. It seems that he is more highly-rated elsewhere than in north London.
