Since Bacary Sagna’s statement last week that he is open to PSG, Monaco or any other offer this summer has made it clear that he has not entered into talks with Arsenal over a contract extension, which seems to point to the fact that he will definitely be leaving at the end of the season.
So, as Arsenal are likely to be in the market for a talented right-back, the Mail reports that the Gunners scouts have been looking around for his replacement, and the two top targets are said to be the Polish international Lukasz Piszczek, who is currently playing for Dortmund, and the Feyenoord right-back Daryl Janmaat, who has recently become a regular in the Dutch national team. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal Debate: If Wenger goes, who do we bring in? by Spendah.
Some of you may notice me lingering around on this site. I post some comments every now and then but this is my first article so please don’t be too harsh. Many of you gooners have been calling for Wenger’s head (me included), but if he does leave, then who do we bring in? I’d reckon before the Villa game about 70% of us wanted Wenger out but now about 40-50% want Wenger out of the club. In this article, I’ll thoroughly assess our options for a replacement manager. .......Read the full article here

Why Wenger shouldn’t be fired at the current moment by KJ
A lot is being said my both the media and fans regarding Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal. Many want the Frenchman out of the club as soon as possible. However, this article is to prove that it could be a very short-sighted opinion.
I have to admit, Wenger has really lost it this season. He’s been unable to win against the likes of Norwich, Fulham, Swansea, Aston Villa and even Sunderland. It’s not acceptable at this level. Every top manager has an off day and dropping points can happen. But when it happens against 5 teams that are considerably weaker than us, there is clearly something going wrong. .......Read the full article here

The Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp saw his team lose 2-1 to Arsenal thanks to yet another couple of goals from Robin Van Persie, but he was rueing the fact that both Mario Gotze and Sven Bender had to be replaced early on in the game.
But even without his best player on the pitch, he couldn’t stop himself from praising the incredible performance by Arsenal’s Flying Dutchman.
“We had some really good moments in this match, but obviously we made a couple of pretty bad mistakes.” he said. “Our good spells were right at the beginning of both halves and we had some great chances. But we also made it too easy on our opponent at times. .......Read the full article here

Wherever Arsenal finish in each competition this season, one thing that is almost certain is the continuation of the attention paid to Robin Van Persie as supposedly the Gunners’ main source of success. Despite the Dutchman’s colleagues performing equally as well in their own right, the solid displays of other squad members are sometimes overlooked. Thankfully for Borussia Dortmund – Arsenal’s Champions League opponents this evening – manager Jürgen Klopp realises that Arsène Wenger’s side are not the one-man team they have so often been described as being. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal forced a draw against Borussia Dortmund in Germany in September with the German Champions forcing an equaliser in the last minute, but the Gunners could face a sterner opponent this time around.
Dortmund have improved in the Bundesliga since then and proved they were back in contention in the latest football results with with a hard fought 1-0 win over the League leaders Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena, putting themselves just two points behind Munich at the top of the table.
The Arsenal target Mario Gotze got the winner for Dortmund, and his coach Jurgen Klopp believes his team now has the confidence to beat Arsenal at the Emirates and put themselves back in with a chance of making the Champions League knockout stages. .......Read the full article here
