As the Arsenal transfer season is upon us, speculation and sensationalism are in the air. I too get caught up in considering what I would do were I in Arsene Wenger’s shoes. Now I’m not suggesting that I have the tactical acumen Wenger does, but my Arsenal team is unbeaten in 2 years with Football manager so I must be almost there right?!? Do we get a big name now (are there any available) or do we wait until summer when there are more options? Do we buy a short term solution now and hope to offload him in the summer when we buy a top top top striker? Do we seek a loan? .......Read the full article here
The possibility of Arsenal and other Premier League clubs trying to sign Robert Lewandowski from Borussia Dortmund was always looking pretty slim. The Polish international striker was heavily rumoured to favour staying in the German Bundesliga and moving to the current champions Bayern Munich.
But earlier this year Lewandowski himself let it be known that nothing was decided about his future. That, and the fact that Dortmund would rather lose him to any other club than their direct rivals just kept the hope alive that a decent bid in January might be enough to get him. .......Read the full article here

It has been reported that the Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski will be the target of a January move from Borussia Dortmund, with the Bundesliga side having penned down the Gunners forward as a replacement for Polish striker Robert Lewandowski who looks all set to leave the Westfalenstadion as his contract is set to expire in the summer.
Podolski, who has been on the sidelines since August with a hamstring injury, is expected to be back shortly after the ongoing international break and sources claim his performances on the pitch will be monitored closely by Dortmund representatives. It is understood that the German side are having second thoughts about letting a world-class talent like Lewandowski leave for free in the summer and will consider selling him in January, lining up Podolski as a like-for-like replacement for the much sought after Polish international. .......Read the full article here
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. If reports from the Italian media are to be believed, the Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is on the verge of a £35 million move for Atletico Madrid’s prolific hitman Diego Costa. .......Read the full article here
Avoid simple mistakes and Arsenal will get something from Germany by KM
Arsenal responded well after two home defeats by beating Liverpool and showing them who’s the better team. Our squad is better than theirs. Honestly, except for their two strikers, the rest would hardly find a spot in our team. But a different kind of test comes this Wednesday with Arsenal travelling to face Borussia Dortmund again. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal could grab Lewandowski on the cheap! by Ash
Arsenal spent a huge amount of the summer transfer window looking for a suitable player to either be a backup to Frenchman Olivier Giroud or to support him in the attack and many of the names mentioned were those under the category of ‘world class’ players. Luis Suarez, Wayne Rooney, Gonzalo Higuain and Karim Benzema were all linked to the Gunners at one point over the course of the summer but unfortunately we failed to secure the signing of any of them. .......Read the full article here
I am not alone in having banged on about Arsenal trying to sign the Poland and Borussia Dortmund striker Rober Lewandowski for some time, but I must admit that it seemed like it was never really going to happen. It seemed to be the worst kept secret in European football that the highly talented 25-year old was going to swap one Bundesliga club for another next summer, but now it does not appear to be so clear cut after all. .......Read the full article here
The strikers Wenger should really be looking at. By stefanthegooner1
Dear Gooners, I would just like to reiterate that I am still buzzing over Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil. He is a world class talent that will definitely improve our squad. The thought of him linking up with Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere in midfield is just mouth watering! However, I still do believe we are one signing away from challenging for the title. .......Read the full article here
Arsene says ”Who?” Let’s give him some help. by Neil
After the Arsenal vs. Villa debacle, of which I will not speak, it became clear to me that our manager needs some help. He said, and I quote ”Everyone keeps telling me to buy, but who..that is the question?”
Most gooners are in agreement that it is the spine of our team in need of additions. Perhaps a left back and left sided midfielder. Before I give my two cents, let’s look at the ships that sailed in the night. Let’s start with: .......Read the full article here
Possible Arsenal targets and their ratings by Blaz
In the past month or so Arsenal have been connected to a bzillion different strikers. Basically, almost every player that scored more than 15 goals in the past season was on his way to Emirates. Everyone has his favourite or favourites, but it’s probably quite safe to say, Arsene will buy just one more striker – don’t forget, we already purchased Sanogo, There is Campbell and of course Giroud, so any talk of combining Higuain and Rooney/Suarez and so on is redundant. .......Read the full article here
As the transfer window officially opens today for Europe, many Arsenal fans are expecting a big week or two from the club considering our pre-season tour starts in just 13 days. One of the biggest transfers that are seemingly close is that of Gonzalo Higuain.
However, according to a famous Spanish sports journalist, Kike Marin (@Kike_Marin_): “Higuain is the 3rd option to Arsenal, but i think that is the more easy. Arsenal is waiting.” .......Read the full article here
