According to various newspaper reports, including the Independent, Arsenal’s head of recruitment Sven Mislintat is set to quit his position at the club. The German has been in the position just over a year after arriving at the club in November 2017 from Dortmund. Reports suggest that former Gunners midfielder Edu
A transfer supremo
Mislintat was labelled as some sort of transfer supremo when he arrived at the club. He built an excellent reputation for himself at Dortmund, helping to spot many of the stars of Jurgen Klopp’s team that thrived earlier in the decade. .......Read more here.....

In the past, I have talked about whether French striker Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should start together for Arsenal up front as a pair. Gunners boss Emery has ruled that scenario out.
Emery’s admission means that one or the other striker will play as the lone front man for the Gunners, with maybe the other playing out wide. Aubameyang has been the chosen striker in the opening three top-flight games and he has blanked in all three games. However, in all three games, Lacazette has come on and Aubameyang has moved to the flank. .......Read more here.....

Apparently, Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has liked a Tweet linking Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele with a £87million move to the Gunners.
The Gabon international is a regular on Twitter and caused quite a stir on a number of occasions with his activity. While it is nice that the striker likes the thought of his former teammate joining the Gunners, it looks highly unlikely.
Arsenal reportedly have a limited budget
Reports coming out of Arsenal suggest that the club are only likely to spend around £50million, plus player sales this summer. With defensive reinforcements the priority, it seems unlikely the Gunners can sign enough defensive quality and Dembele, even if they do manage to offload some players. .......Read more here.....

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. .......Read more here.....

It seems that Arsenal are one of the main characters in the ‘Where will Thomas Tuchel be managing next season’ saga. Recent reports from the German media really confused the situation surrounding the talented boss.
One German media organisation claimed that Tuchel had signed a deal with Arsenal, while another completely contradicted its competitor saying that Tuchel is more likely to move to Paris.
Bayern the preferred option for Tuchel
Now according to Sky Sports, the former Dortmund boss’ most likely destination this summer is German giants Bayern Munich. The move would be an understandable one for Tuchel. .......Read more here.....

According to German media outlet Kicker, former Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has turned down the overtures of Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to replace Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this summer.
Kicker claims they have inside information on the move, which if true could mean a big change at Arsenal. The report suggests that Tuchel is in negotiations with officials over joining the north London club. The German boss was previously linked with a move to Arsenal last summer, only for Wenger to sign a two-year deal. .......Read more here.....

According to London Football, Arsenal maybe monitoring Dembele, no not the Belgian midfielder who ambles around so effortlessly at Tottenham, but Barcelona’s young forward Ousmane Dembele.
The 20-year-old is regarded as one of the most exciting young players in the world game. He only moved to the Catalan giants last summer a deal worth over £90million.
Struggled for game time due to injuries
Unfortunately, for the youngster, he has struggled to make an impact at Barcelona due to injuries. His recent goal against Chelsea in the Champions League was the forward’s first for the Catalan club. .......Read more here.....

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, the Frenchman signed playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a replacement for veteran Spanish playmaker Santi Cazorla.
Asked about the two players having similarities, Wenger is quoted by the Metro as saying: ‘There are similarities, yes. ‘I wish [he could take over Cazorla’s role]. ‘Santi was an exceptional football player, technically to find Santi [would be difficult]. ‘[Mkhitaryan] for sure has the technical level to play in our team.’
Santi Cazorla has been out a long time
Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla has failed to play for Arsenal in over a year. The 33-year-old Spain international has had nine operations in an attempt to cure an Achilles tendon problem. .......Read more here.....

The January transfer window was a successful one for Arsenal. The signings of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to be shrewd ones by Arsene Wenger.
The pair made their home Premier League debuts in the Gunners 5-1 demolition of Everton on Saturday evening. Both had big impacts on their maiden home games for the north London team.
Impressive contributions from both
Aubameyang came straight into the starting line-up despite the fight that the striker was supposedly ill. The Gabon international displaced France star Alexandre Lacazette and did what he did best by scoring on his debut, although replays showed that the striker was in an offside position. .......Read more here.....

The January transfer window has closed and all Arsenal’s deals are done. For me, the January transfer window has been a success for the Gunners. Too many players at the club were complacent, unhappy or just good enough.
Instead of those aforementioned players, Arsenal have brought in two players that under the right conditions could be key players for the club.
Walcott, Sanchez and Giroud sold
The fact that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has decided to allow Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud leave the club in January shows that the veteran Frenchman is determined to overhaul the team. .......Read more here.....
