Posted on July 14, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Times, Italian club Internazionale are in pole position to sign Bordeaux’s Brazilian starlet Malcom. Inter have reportedly offered an initial fee of around £8.8million to sign the youngster on loan before the deal becomes permanent next summer for a fee of £26.5million.

Malcom had reportedly previously been a transfer target for Arsenal. However, that was during Arsene Wenger’s reign as Gunners boss.

Malcom a talented youngster

Last summer and in January, there were persistent rumours that Arsenal were on the verge of signing the youngster. One of the biggest reasons for the reports was the potential of the youngster.

File this one under the “wait, what?” section.

The rumour mill in football is a funny thing. Sometimes it can throw up moves that are genuine possibilities that you can start talking about in a realistic way. Sometimes, however, it throws up some utterly bizarre ideas that leave you wondering whether or not we’re being taken for a ride. This specific article focuses on the latter, with Arsenal apparently being interested in acquiring the services of Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min.

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.

Arsenal battling Tottenham to sign promising youngster Ben Wilmot 0

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing highly-rated youngster Ben Wilmot but the London side face a battle with Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur as the Stevenage defender has been attracting a lot of interest.

Arsenal fell to a hugely damaging defeat in their last Premier League game as they were beaten by Tottenham. Harry Kane was the only scorer in the match as the English striker outshone the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The loss was one that consigned Arsenal to their eighth defeat of the season, while they are now seven points behind Tottenham in fifth, and eight behind Chelsea in fourth.

Paul Merson questions where the intensity of Arsenal’s front three was against Tottenham 0

Paul Merson has questioned the intensity of Arsenal’s front three as they struggled to give Tottenham’s defence any kind of problems in their Premier League derby last weekend.

Arsenal fell to a hugely disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham on Saturday. Harry Kane was the only player to find the back of the net in the game as he outshone the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.

The victory has seen Tottenham open up a seven-point lead over the Gunners, while Chelsea in fourth are eight points ahead of Arsene Wenger’s men.

Are Arsenal now just flat track bullies? 2

Arsenal has a reputation for failing to show up in big games. Saturday’s north London derby 1-0 defeat by Tottenham was a prime example. Yet, the previous week the Gunners smashed Everton 5-1 at home. The two results suggest that Arsene Wenger’s team are just track bullies.

Good enough to a point

For me, until the January transfer window, it felt like the quality of the Arsenal squad was deteriorating. The signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were good signings.

Arsenal now odds of 10/1 to claim a Champions League spot 0

Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.

The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.

Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.

Big attacking players failed to turn up

Kane scores only goal in north London derby 0

Posted on February 10, 2018 by David Nugent

On Saturday afternoon, Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game in the north London derby, in a defeat that could prove very costly to Arsenal’s Champions League hopes.

The first real threat on home goal came on nine minutes, as Shkodran Mustafi inadvertently prodded the ball towards his own goal ahead of Harry Kane, only for Petr Cech to save and put the ball out for a corner kick. Tottenham’s Eric Dier headed well wide of goal on 14 minutes from a corner kick.

Tottenham vs Arsenal: Get Gunners at 40/1 Price to Win the North London Derby 0

Posted on February 09, 2018 by Milos Markovic

It’s last been in 2014 that Arsenal managed to beat their north London rivals away.

The last win over the neighbours was recorded at White Hart Lane and Gunners now have a fine chance of ending the run at the national stadium which has thus far been a fortunate ground for Arsene Wenger’s men.

Arsenal won their last nine matches at Wembley and are most certainly looking to make it a perfect ten.

Gunners head over to lock horns with fifth-placed Tottenham high on confidence following a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Everton last time out, which saw the January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang open his account for his new club.
