Everton the favourites to sign Danny Welbeck 0

Posted on May 24, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Express, Everton are the favourites to sign Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck this summer. The report claims that the Merseysider’s are prepared to hand the 28-year-old a contract worth around £100,000 per-week this summer.

Welbeck is of course out of contract with the Gunners this summer and will leave the club on a free transfer.

Endured an injury-hit stint at Arsenal

Danny Welbeck’s Arsenal career has been injury plagued. The England international has spent five years with the north London club but has never really managed to nail down a regular starting spot at the club.

Should Petr Cech start the Europa Cup final for Arsenal? 0

As I wrote yesterday’s article about Petr Cech’s return to former club Chelsea this summer as sporting director, I realised the gravity of the situation ahead of the Europa League final next Wednesday between Arsenal and the Blues.

Petr Cech is only human

It seems almost certain that Petr Cech is returning to his former club. There is nothing wrong with that, he enjoyed the best years of his football career at Chelsea. He obviously has a great affinity with the club from south west London.

According to Sky Sports, veteran Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is returning to former club Chelsea this summer after he brings down the curtain on his trophy-laden career. The former Czech Republic international will become the Blues new sporting director.

Cech enjoyed his best years at Chelsea

Petr Cech enjoyed the best years of his football career at Chelsea, winning every trophy there was to win with the Blues in the club game. The 37-year-old was regarded as the best goalkeeper in the world while at Stamford Bridge.

Gunners reportedly have competition for Bournemouth star 0

Posted on May 21, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Standard, all six of last season’s Premier League top-six are monitoring the situation of Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser. The Scottish international’s contract expires in the summer of 2020 and noises coming out of the stars camp suggest that he wants to move on.

Arsenal have of course been heavily linked with a move for Fraser, who the Cherries rated in the £30million-bracket.

Competition for Fraser

The notion of all the top-six being interested in signing Fraser is a strange one. The winger enjoyed an impressive campaign for Bournemouth, scoring seven goals and producing 14 assists in the Premier League.

Arsenal in competition – Part 2 0

Europa League (cont.)

The knockout stages wound up being much more difficult than anyone could’ve anticipated, and when we say difficult, we mean BATE Borisov and Rennes just wouldn’t lie down. They did it a really great job of holding firm and pushing Arsenal all the way, and they deserve to be applauded for that. Then, in the big games against Napoli and Valencia, the Gunners proved once again that they can mix it up with the best of them when called upon. Now, one final showdown with Chelsea awaits – and there’s no reason to believe they can’t get the job done.

We’re of the belief that Arsenal have had an interesting season, and in truth, interesting is one of the best neutral words we can think to use. We’ve said it time and time again since the Premier League campaign came to an end, but here it is again: some things were good, and some were bad. It’s not like we get off on sitting on the fence or anything, either, because in many ways we actually aren’t sitting on the fence. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Lacazette linked with a move to Atletico Madrid 0

Posted on May 17, 2019 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Express, Atletico Madrid are planning a big-money summer move for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette. The French forward has been a vital player for the Gunners this season for both goals and assists.

Atletico looking for a Griezmann

Atletico Madrid look set to lose French World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann this summer, as a release clause in his contract of around a reported £104million becomes active on July 1st.

Griezmann has already revealed that he will leave the club from the Spanish capital this summer after five years. Reportedly he has already agreed a deal to sign to La Liga rivals Barcelona, who came close to signing the forward last summer.

Arsenal favourites to land Wilfried Zaha 0

Posted on May 16, 2019 by David Nugent

According to reports from Sky Sports, Crystal Palace star Wilfried Zaha has asked to leave the Eagles this summer. The 26-year-old is reportedly looking to play Champions League football next season. The news could be significant for Arsenal, as the Gunners are now 1/ 2 favourites to sign Zaha this summer.

Starting to fulfil his potential

Wilfried Zaha has started to fulfil his potential in the last few seasons in a poor Palace team. This season the Ivory Coast forward has scored ten league goals and produced five assists after playing much of the campaign as a central forward.

Burnley v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

Posted on May 11, 2019 by David Nugent

On Sunday afternoon, Burnley host Arsenal at Turf Moor in the final game of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign.

Burnley have endured a rollercoaster of a campaign. Sean Dyche’s team struggled for results at the beginning of the season, but have since moved away from the relegation zone and secured safety with relative comfort.

The Clarets have failed to win in their last three top-flight games, last time out suffering a 2-0 defeat at in-form Everton. The defeat followed on from a draw at Chelsea and a home defeat by Manchester City, so their recent fixtures have been difficult.

Gunners have a golden opportunity to win the Europa League 0

In the end, Arsenal recorded a comfortable 7-3 aggregate victory over Valencia in the semi-final of the Europa League. It was very un-Arsenal like to make it so easy. Their away form prior to the 4-2 victory at the Mestalla on Thursday night made the win all the more satisfying.

The Gunners will now face London rivals Chelsea in the final in Azerbaijan. In truth, Arsenal will now fancy their chances of winning the trophy on May 29th.
