Arsene Wenger has jumped to the top of PSG’s transfer list apparently. The super rich French club want the Arsenal manager to take over from the current coach Carlo Ancelotti in the summer, apparently, and they are ready to tempt Le Prof with a three year contract worth £30 million.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Ancelotti is aware that he will probably be replaced at the end of the season, even if he wins the French Ligue 1 title. The Qatari owners want more from their massive investment in the club, as they are failing to dominate in the French league again, PSG currently sit in third place, three points off the top with a game in hand. They lost the title last year to Montpellier and the owners have had enough. .......Read the full article here

I fear that opposition players will start to target Jack Wilshere, niggling him with small fouls and winding up because they think he might retaliate. Wilshere can have a devastating effect for Arsenal, but he is no use if he gets sent off, leaving us with 10 men, as happened at Old Trafford when we were finally showing signs of getting in to the game.
Wilshere has been compared to another of England’s great players, Paul Gascoigne, and does seem to have the same capacity to get booked at the minute. He was only on the pitch for less than half an hour for England last night, but he picked up a yellow card.

The ongoing saga of the transfer of Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona has taken a new twist today. The Daily Mirror is suggesting that Barcelona are preparing to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovich to Arsenal as part of any deal to take Cesc to the Camp Nou.
With David Villa’s arrival, Ibrahimovich is now thought to be surplus to requirements, despite the club paying a record 69m euros for the striker just last summer.
The Swede has been severely criticized in Spain, but still managed to score 16 goals in just 29 league (including all his first five games!). The year before he was the top scorer in Italy with 25 goals for Inter Milan, so to say the man is over-rated may be a slight exaggeration! .......Read the full article here
