Morata WILL move and Arsenal are favourites to sign him

It is a shame for Arsenal that Alvaro Morata did not make the right decision in January. Arsene Wenger was apparently very close to getting the young Spanish international to join the Gunners on loan until the end of the season, but Morata wanted one last chance to prove himself at Real Madrid.

The injury to Jese Rodriguez has given him a chance again, and he has scored seven goals from his limited appearances, including a debut Champions League strike, but Morata has now finally accepted once and for all that he needs to leave his boyhood club in the summer, according to Spanish transfer website Fichajes.net.

Arsenal transfer contact over Di Maria denied by Real Madrid

No bid for Di Maria from Arsenal! by Ash

The transfer window may not be open yet but with the Christmas period soon to hit the big day and with January just around the corner, the transfer rumours are beginning to warm up and for Arsenal there are some very interesting results.

Arsenal CAN get Benzema IF Madrid can get Suarez

There were some rumours doing the rounds of the Spanish and English media in recent weeks about Arsenal and the possibility of signing another of the top players of Real Madrid when the January transfer window opens. The player in question was the France international striker Karim Benzema.

The reason that was being given for Madrid potentially letting their main centre forward go was that Benzema was struggling for form and was getting regular grief from the home fans at the Santiago Bernabeu. But the 25-year old has enjoyed an upsurge in form and confidence for his club, as well as helping France to overturn a first leg defeat against Ukraine and qualify for the world cup.

Madrid starlet Morata rejects Spurs for loan move to Arsenal

Arsenal should sign Alvaro Morata on loan by KJ

Quite a few news outlets in Spain have been reporting over the last week that Arsenal have agreed a loan deal for young Real Madrid talent, Alvaro Morata. This, if true, is great news for the Arsenal and could potentially set us up in the striker position for the next ten years if this potential loan goes well.

Arsenal do NOT need a new striker – We have Walcott says Wenger!!

Ahead of his side’s top of the table clash against Southampton, the Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been speaking about the possibility of bringing in another striker in January. Much has been made of the Gunners’ over-reliance on Olivier Giroud and many are calling for another front man to come in to compliment the Frenchman in attack and to bolster Arsenal’s title chances.

Why Arsenal fans MUST get off Bendtner’s back!!

Why it’s silly to have a go at Bendtner by KJ

As most of you will know, Nicklas Bendtner was misquoted in numerous papers regarding his ambitions to join Barcelona and Real Madrid once he finally leaves Arsenal. However, what was actually asked was what would be his dream move and unsurprisingly, he said the same as any footballer would. But his comments have caused him to receive ridiculous amounts of abuse on twitter. I want to point out that there is no point ridiculing Bendtner and here’s why:

Walcott return will see the best of Ozil for Arsenal – and Goals Galore!!

Why Özil will only get better by KJ

Over the last two weeks, Özil has struggled to impact on Arsenal games to the level you’d expect from a world class midfielder and yet he’s still managed to get an assist vs Liverpool and his lovely cross was the reason we scored in Dortmund.

But there is no hiding the fact that he was really poor on Sunday against Manchester United (although we later found out he had flu) and the media have already started the `Moyes has been vindicated in rejecting Özil` nonsense. However, I’ll explain why that is preposterous as well as why Özil can only get better.

Why Arsenal fans should forget about signing Benzema

Why Madrid won’t sell Arsenal Benzema by KJ

The English media last night had a story that stated Arsene Wenger was in talks with Benzema’s agents and was looking to make a £27million bid in January to secure the Frenchman’s services. Now I personally am taking this with a massive pinch of salt and I want to detail why this transfer is extremely unlikely.

Madrid sold Higuain in the summer for around £35 million after deducing he was surplus to requirements. They also felt Benzema was clearly the better player and that’s why they decided to keep him. Now if the inferior player is worth £35 million to Madrid, why would they sell the superior player for £8 million cheaper, as the Mirror report claims?

Why Benzema form is great news for tired Giroud and Arsenal

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has intimated that he would prefer not to have this international break at the minute. The Frenchman would rather have the chance for the Gunners to get straight back into action after a disappointing defeat, but it does represent a good chance for some of the more overworked Arsenal players to get a break from playing every midweek and weekend. One player who seems more in need of that than most is Olivier Giroud.

Arsenal in transfer link with Costa by AT

With misfit striker Nicklas Bendtner probably on his way when the transfer window reopens in January, Arsenal are being heavily tipped to bring in a world-class replacement for the misfiring Danish international.

Is it all over for Bendtner at Arsenal? by AT

Most Arsenal fans are already at that point where they cannot stand to see striker Nicklas Bendtner on the pitch in a red and white shirt anymore. After another lacklustre performance against Chelsea in the League cup, many Arsenal fans have called for his head and the Danish international might well be on his way out of the Emirates come the opening of the January transfer window.
