It seems that Arsenal and their scouts have got season tickets to watch Real Madrid, because it looks like we could be after two more of their players this summer, to add to the marquee signing of Mesut Ozil at the end of August. You are probably well aware of the rumours surrounding the transfer of Alvaro Morata to the Emirates, but he may not be coming alone, as they say.
The next Real Madrid player on Arsene Wenger’s transfer radar, according to The Mirror, is the young Brazilian midfielder Casemiro. This could even end up being another deal like the one with Morata, which looks like being either a long term loan or with a buy back option included in a permanent transfer. .......Read the full article here
When the new Premier League season starts, we are all hoping that there are a good few new players ready to fire the Gunners to glory, but will one of them be the young Costa Rican striker Joel Campbell. The 21-year old, currently plying his trade in the Greek Super League for Olympiakos, has been on the books of Arsenal since the summer of 2011 but has yet to kick a ball in anger for us. .......Read the full article here
Alvaro Morata was one of the many strikers linked with Arsenal in the January transfer window. It looked for a while as if the talented young Spanish striker was going to come on loan to the Gunners from Real Madrid, but it seems he decided to stay and fight for his place in the Madrid team.
A recent injury to Jese has given him a chance to do that and he is starting to show once again what he can do. His confidence is returning and he has scored a few great goals recently, so the news, reported by The Mirror, that Arsenal will be able to sign the 21-year old on a permanent deal this summer for a bargain price of £8 million, is fantastic. Or is it? .......Read the full article here
As the Premier League season builds to it’s closest run conclusion ever, with Arsenal and three other sides still in with a very realistic chance of becoming the new champions of England, the players should be thinking of nothing but the next game. But behind the scenes at the Emirates, I expect there is a lot of work and preparation going on for what will happen when the season does come to a close. .......Read the full article here
Okay I know that there is still a long way to go before the transfer window opens, but I would like to venture that Arsenal’s involvement in the chase for trophies may give us an advantage over clubs like Manchester United in the summer transfer window, as David Moyes side may not even be able to offer any European football at all next season! .......Read the full article here
The speculation about Alvaro Morata coming to join Arsenal has not gone away, even though the proposed loan move in January didn’t come off. The young Spanish striker has apparently accepted that he needs to move away from his boyhood club Real Madrid in order to play regularly and further his career, something he really should have known a month ago, but the £25 million price tag that his La Liga club have slapped on him means his destination probably won’t be the Emirates. .......Read the full article here
It was one of the big transfer rumours involving Arsenal in the January transfer window, but the deal to bring young Spanish striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid on a temporary basis did not come off. At first it was thought that his La Liga club or his manager would not sanction it, and then it was reported that the player himself had rejected the move in order to fight for his place in Spain. .......Read the full article here
Many football writers are suggesting that the Arsenal manager has realised all of a sudden that he could do with making a signing or two during the January transfer window, which now has less than 48 hours to run. I don’t buy this personally and think that Arsene Wenger and his scouting network have been checking potential signings and getting ready for the crucial last few days.
Maybe the injury recurrence to Aaron Ramsey and the poor performance of Nicklas Bendtner against Coventry has given the Frenchman extra incentive or maybe he has been waiting to see if any new possibilities came up or we suffered a late injury crisis like with Kieran Gibbs last season. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal in For Yet Another Barcelona Starlet? by AT
Following the unfortunate injury to Theo Walcott, it is no surprise that the Gunners are increasingly being linked with several strikers and wide forwards. The latest name to enter the fold is that of Barcelona starlet Christian Tello, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger understood to be on the verge of a £10.5m move for the young Spaniard.
After the proposed loan deal for young Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata was ruled out, with Morata deciding to stay and fight for his place in Spain, as reported by Metro, it seems that Wenger still wants a striker from La Liga but has moved from one Spanish giant’s out of favour striker to another. .......Read the full article here
The saga involving Arsenal, Real Madrid and their young out-of-favour striker Alvaro Morata has taken another twist today. Reports from Spain have apparently made it much more likely that the Spanish giants will let the youngster leave this January, but now the deal may be a permanent one rather than the loan deal that was previously on the cards.
This change of heart from Carlo Ancelotti and Madrid, reported by Metro, may have come after Morata’s chance to impress this week was cruelly cut short by a head injury that left him dazed, confused, throwing up and looking like a boxer. That may have been his last chance to show his worth to Ancelotti before the transfer window closes. .......Read the full article here
Okay Arsenal fans, I am officially starting to get nervous about the transfer window now. I don’t know why, really, because Arsene Wenger seems to have developed the technique of leaving things right until the last minute, but I am sure you will agree that it would be nice if Arsenal managed to sign a striker before deadline day.
One of the most promising links we have had, in my opinion, was the loan deal for Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid. Carlo Ancelotti declared that he would not be leaving, then softened his stance and it has all gone a bit quiet since. Morata is a Madrid fan and has come through the ranks so understandably would like to stay, but only if he is going to play, so maybe the next two weeks will be crucial. .......Read the full article here
It seems clear that Arsenal Football Club and Arsene Wenger have not given up hope of completing a loan deal until the end of the season for the young Real Madrid and Spain striker Alvaro Morata. Despite his manager Carlo Ancelotti declaring earlier in the week that no players would be entering or leaving the Santiago Bernabeu this January, there are some indications that he might be allowed to go after all. .......Read the full article here
