Arsenal close to signing Morgan Schneiderlin 0

Posted on May 15, 2015 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin his summer, despite the fact that the Frenchman’s odds of joining Tottenham had been slashed.


The Gunners are now the favourites to sign the French midfielder at odds of 6/5 this summer. Two separate sources have apparently confirmed that Schneiderlin is heading to north London to Arsenal and not Spurs.


Morgan Schneiderlin is believed to have been a transfer target for Arsenal for the last few seasons. Last summer he was heavily linked with a move to both Arsenal and Spurs, but Southampton are reported to have refused to sell the highly-rated star.

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham are set to launch a summer bid for reported-Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin. The Saints are believed to rate Schneiderlin in the £20million bracket and blocked the Frenchman’s exit last summer.


The Standard claims that Spurs are set to offer either England winger Andros Townsend, or young French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli in part-exchange to sign the highly-rated French international midfielder.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men had a move for Schneiderlin blocked last summer, as the Saints had already lost a raft of their key players to other Premier League clubs. However, they believe they can successfully secure his signature this summer because of his relationship with former-Saints boss Pochettino.

Arsenal will face Aston Villa at Wembley in May in the FA Cup final, after the Villans recorded a surprise 2-1 win over Liverpool in the second semi-final on Sunday.


Arsene Wenger’s team will be confident of recording their second consecutive FA Cup final victory over the side from the Midlands. On paper Liverpool looked like the tougher opposition for the final, but relegation-threatened Villa raised their game to defeat the Merseysider’s.

In a strange way maybe playing Brendan Rodgers side in the final would have been better for the Gunners mind set.

Arsenal’s winning run will be put to the test by relegation-threatened Burnley on Saturday at Turf Moor. The Gunners recent form has saw them considered by many as potential Premier League title outsiders.

It is a game on paper that Arsene Wenger’s side should and must win if they are to maintain their position in the automatic Champions League qualification spots and keep alive even the faintest hopes of winning the title.


The best way to describe Burnley this season is probably spirited. They unexpectedly gained promotion through sheer graft and being well organised last season. This season has been a similar story, although they may just come up short in the quality department in the Premier League.

Arsenal hosts bottom of the table Leicester at the Emirates Stadium looking to bounce back from their weekend derby defeat by Tottenham.

The Gunners suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane against their arch-rivals on Saturday, as England hopeful Harry Kane netted a brace after Mesut Ozil had given the Gunners a first half lead.

That defeat at Spurs ended the Gunners five game winning run in all competitions. The victory also saw Spurs move above Arsene Wenger’s team in the Premier League table. The Gunners could temporarily move into fourth spot, depending on Spurs result at Liverpool.

As the dust settles on Arsenal’s 2-1 north London derby defeat to Tottenham at White Hart Lane, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will now turn his attention to Tuesday night’s game against Leicester at the Emirates Stadium.


The Gunners underperformed against Spurs and even Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admitted that Spurs deserved to come out of the clash with the win and three points. It was an unusually tepid display from the Gunners.

Arsenal’s fine form came to a halt, as the Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham courtesy of a Harry Kane brace.

The first shot on goal came on five minutes. Spurs striker Harry Kane curled an effort towards goal from the edge of the area, only for David Ospina to produce a fine save. However, it was Arsenal that took the lead on 11 minutes.

Danny Welbeck used his pace to take on Danny Rose. The former-United man’s cross found Olivier Giroud who laid the ball off to Mesut Ozil and the German placed a fantastic volley into the corner of the net.
