Alexandre Lacazette thriving once again for the Gunners 0

Posted on October 14, 2018 by David Nugent

When Alexandre Lacazette arrived at Arsenal last summer from Lyon many saw him as the top-class striker the Gunners had been missing in recent years. He arrived at the club with a reputation as a prolific goalscorer.

The French international striker made a steady if unspectacular start to life in north London. However, the big money signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window meant that Lacazette’s place as Arsenal’s first choice striker was in doubt.

Ramsey to run down contract 0

According to Sky Sports, Aaron Ramsey has no intention of leaving the club in January.

As his contract expires next summer, that would mean leaving as a free agent unless an agreement can be found regarding a new deal. That, as things stand, seems extremely unlikely as the club have decided to stop all negotiations on the subject, reportedly unwilling to pay the Welshman the wages his representatives demand in his name.

Reiss Nelson eying a place in the Arsenal first-team 0

Reiss Nelson is without a doubt one of Arsenal’s brightest young prospects. In the summer, Gunners boss Unai Emery rather surprisingly decided to allow the youngster to join German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim on a season-long loan deal.

Eying up a first-team spot at Arsenal

Despite his temporary summer move, Nelson is looking forward to returning to Arsenal and playing first-team football. Talking about making the move to Germany, the youngster told Talksport: “It was difficult,”

Back in August we hinted (aka outright said) that the media had been pretty unfair towards Unai Emery. The Spaniard wasn’t off to the best of starts with losses against Chelsea and Manchester City on his record, but over the course of the last few weeks, it’s safe to say that he’s been able to bounce back with a vengeance as the Gunners find themselves in the top four courtesy of a nine-game winning run.

AC Milan back in for Ramsey 0

The Aaron Ramsey saga seems to be something that will just never end, and we don’t know what we’ve done to deserve it. Sure, the Welshman deserves to try and fight for what he believes he’s worth, but that doesn’t really help matters when you consider that barely anyone else thinks he’s worth the £250,000 a week that he’s reportedly proposing. Sure, he’s a great midfielder to have on the books, but he almost certainly isn’t worth a quarter of a million pounds every seven days. That, in our mind, is baffling.

Arsenal want Hector Herrera 0

As has been reported before, Liverpool and Manchester United are set to do battle against each other in order to acquire the services of Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey in January. The Welshman’s contract at the Emirates is set to expire next summer and as things stand at this point, it seems his future is almost certain to lie elsewhere.

Under those circumstances, it’s understandable that manager Unai Emery should wish to sell the midfielder in January in order to extracts at least some funds from the deal. Meanwhile, it has also already been reported that Arsenal are set to sign Atlanta United’s Miguel Almiron in the winter transfer window. The MLS side have already confirmed Almiron would be leaving them and moving to England at the start of the new year.

What to do with Cech 0

It’s never a bad thing to have two goalkeepers on the books that are playing well. Of course, if they’re both considered to be world class in one way or another then that can make things a little bit more complicated because both will want to play consistent first team football and that just can’t happen. It’s not quite as severe as something like the NFL whereby there are only 16 regular season games to play in, because at least in this instance you’ve got the League & FA Cup, international football and European competition.

The Mustafi issue 0

It goes without saying that this season, for the most part, has been a success thus far for Arsenal Football Club. While they may have had early setbacks against Manchester City and Chelsea they’ve been on fire ever since then, to the point where a place in the top four doesn’t seem all that unlikely after all. Alas, with great power comes great responsibility, and the responsibility of the club at this moment in time is for them to realise that they have a weak link in their ranks – Shokdran Mustafi.

Arsenal and Tottenham in a battle for United star 0

Posted on October 11, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Guardian, Arsenal and Tottenham are in a transfer battle to land Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.

Both clubs are looking to strengthen at the heart of their defences, for different reasons. It seems that Bailly has become a prime target for the north London pair.

Endured mixed fortunes at United

When Bailly arrived at United in 2016 from Villarreal for a fee of around £30million, the Ivory Coast international was seen as the answer to the Red Devils central defensive problems.

Liverpool and United preparing January moves for Ramsey 0

With the situation between Arsenal and Aaron Ramsey becoming clearer by the day, reports about interest from other clubs are bound to come thick in the coming months. His current deal expires next summer and it is reasonable to assume that, having withdrawn all offers of a new deal, Arsenal would look to sell the player in January to avoid missing out on a transfer fee altogether.

Various recent reports have linked the Welshman with Liverpool, Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan, but the latest one from Evening Standard claims the two clubs from the northwest of England are set to do battle for Ramsey’s signature in January, looking to make a cut-price deal.
