Arsenal could be set for a summer transfer tussle with Manchester United over the French international midfielder Yohan Cabaye. Both clubs have been keeping a close eye on the 27-year old who has been at the centre of his current club Newcastle’s return to form.
Newcastle signed Cabaye from the French Ligue 1 side Lille for less than £5 million and he has been brilliant for the Magpies since arriving. Arsene Wenger is hoping that an offer of around £15 million will be enough to persuade Newcastle to sell their star, according to Metro and the Express, although things will not be simple if Ferguson decides to challenge the Gunners. .......Read the full article here

Well it is about time that Arsenal fans had something to cheer about today, as Sky Sports are reporting right now that the Gunners have put in a bid for Yohan Cabaye, and Newcastle have accepted it!
So now Arsenal have a couple of hours to agree personal terms and check him over before the window shuts. Cabaye has been linked with Arsenal for the last few days after it was originally assumed that we were after his midfield Toon team-mate Chieck Tiote – but it seems that those rumours were wide of the mark. .......Read the full article here

Wenger is not giving anything away! by KJ
Today Wenger just finished him press conference and he hasn’t given anything away.
Here’s his dialogue regarding incoming players, as reported by Arsenal.com
“We have enough [players], that is for sure, but you always want to improve your squad and if we find a top, top, top player we will do it,” he said.
“We are working very, very hard. We have resources available so if it is not happening now it will happen in December.
“We are active but we do not just want to bring average players in. If we find a special player who can find us a plus we will do it, if not we will not do it. .......Read the full article here

If anybody knows about how to score goals it is the one and only Ian Wright. Wrighty scored 185 goals for the Gunners, a club record only surpassed by King Henry. With 305 goals in his club career, the man was a goal scoring legend, and has turned his attention to the goal scoring problems of his former club, Arsenal.
Unlike some Arsenal fans, Wright is confident that Giroud and Podolski will soon adapt to the rigours of the Premier league and will start to score goals. He does share the fear of many Gooners that Arsenal will get left behind in the title race unless they start taking the chances and half chances as soon as possible. .......Read the full article here

There are loads of Arsenal transfer rumours popping up as we enter the last few days of the transfer window, and today is no different. Come on Arsene, we’re all waiting for that “special player” you’ve promised us last week!
Well first of all let’s get one outgoing player out of the way, as the Mail reports that Nicklas Bendtner is now being looked at by Juventus as the Old Lady seems to have failed in their bid to get Llorente. The bad news is that the price being quoted (or offered) is only £5million. As much as we don’t want the Greatest Striker In The World back at Arsenal, I really think he should be worth more than that after his performances at the Euros this summer…… .......Read the full article here

Arsenal are apparently preparing a £15 million offer for a midfielder from Newcastle United, but it is not the one we were expecting. Most Arsenal fans believe that a strong defensive midfielder is the priority for the Gunners, and we were being linked with Newcstle’s 26-year old Ivorian Cheick Tiote who is a tough tackling midfielder.
Arsene Wenger poured cold water on to that suggestion after yesterday’s match after he was asked directly about Tiote.
“Tiote is a good player but he is not on his way to Arsenal.” .......Read the full article here
