The Arsenal midfield is a much more complicated situation. Last year we have used two players, Arteta and Ramsey in a more defensive position to be able to patch together our winning run at the end of the season. What that creates is a lack of an extra creative attacking player. We basically did a one-man job with two men. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal have been linked with Luis Nani before, and it seems that the Portuguese international winger will be leaving his current club Manchester United this summer. There is interest from other clubs, most notably the Turkish champions Galatasaray, and it is through them that we have learned that United are only looking for a transfer fee of around £8 million, so should Arsenal be trying to bring him to the Emirates? .......Read the full article here
I am sure a lot of Arsenal fans are beginning to get a bit excited with the rising Wayne Rooney rumours and the news quoted by several sources of information that Manchester United have granted Arsenal permission to talk with the England International striker. Whilst I’m sure a lot of you are also getting quite annoyed by the consistent talk but lack of action, I’m afraid that the reality is when you’re a club like Arsenal that is extremely careful with negotiations and finances, a transfer isn’t going to happen overnight. .......Read the full article here
There have been some rumours linking Arsenal with a possible move for the Manchester United and Portugal winger Nani. No official moves have been made, and maybe Arsene Wenger has gone off the idea or maybe he is keeping his targets as secret as possible. If he is still interested in Nani, however, there is some good news for the Frenchman today.
According to the Daily Star, United are willing to sell the 26-year old, and they are only looking for around £8.5 million, which seems like quite a bargain to me. The report claims that the Turkish champions Galatasaray are also interested in the out of favour winger, and have already made one bid for him. .......Read the full article here
Nani has been out of favour in the last two seasons at Old Trafford because of contract problems and criticism from Sir Alex Ferguson. He has not been playing regularly for United but he hasn’t been totally frozen out of the club like some players usually are. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna has spent the majority of his career with the Gunners, after signing from Ligue 1 side Auxerre back in 2007. In those 6 years Sagna has managed to make 175 league appearances, scoring just 3 goals. In his first years he competed with Emmanuel Eboue to nail down the Right Back position, however it was quickly seen who the better player was and Sagna soon managed to make a stance and become Arsenal’s regular Right Back. Since then he has never really managed to lose his place, mainly due to the lack of competition, however with Jenkinson now seemingly hot on his tail, could this be the French international’s last season with Arsenal? .......Read the full article here
Arsenal are ready to do some squad improvement, with Arsene Wenger set to have £70 million burning a hole in the pockets of his giant coat. There is room for improvement all over the pitch, so it will be interesting to see what Wenger thinks are the priorities. It sounds a lot, but £70 million does not buy many quality players these days, and there is no point buying squad players because we have plenty. One player who could add quality and extra options to the Arsenal team and who would not cost a bomb is the Portuguese international winger Luis Nani from Manchester United. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal are interested in the Portuguese winger Nani who has fallen out of favour with the Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson. United have realised that Arsenal are looking at the winger, however, and are suddenly talking about how valuable he is and how reluctant they are to let him go.
Arsene Wenger is no fool, though, as we know, and if Ferguson really thinks he can push us for more money then he is going to be sorely disappointed. The only reason that Wenger is interested in Nanni in the first place is that he is cheap. Whether that is because his talents are on the wane is a subject of conjecture, but it does mean that signing him is a risky business. .......Read the full article here
There have been many recent Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that Arsene Wenger was going to target the unsettled Man United winger Nani as a replacement for Theo Walcott (if he moves into the centre or leaves), but it looks like Arsenal fans can now cross that possibility off their lists.
Ferguson himself expressed the view that Nani still has over a year on his contract despite the Portugese internation currently recovering from a hamstring injury. “Nani’s contract isn’t up until the end of next season – and we need him,” .......Read the full article here
If Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal board learnt anything at all from last night’s humiliating exit from the Capital One cup at the hands of Bradford City, I hope it is the fact that we need to keep hold of Theo Walcott. Even more important is that we do not sell him to Manchester United, as a report in the Mail today suggests might happen. If we do, we might as well change our name to Manchester United B. .......Read the full article here
Is it time we have to resort to a Man Utd outcast to save our sinking season? Is Nani the answer for Arsenal? Granted he has his “off” days, but he could be the spark Arsenal needs (along with a few more additions) to resurrect our season. If the “out of touch” board have any decency left, they will grant Arsene Wenger a large sum of money to strengthen the depthless Gunners. .......Read the full article here
Wilfried Zaha is an Arsenal fan and was soon going to be an Arsenal player if newspaper reports are true. The Crystal Palace manager, Ian Holloway, complained again this week about Arsene Wenger. Holloway is upset about what he percieves as Wenger’s attempts to destabilise the young winger, even though Wenger has done nothing but answer a question posed by a journalist.
Palace have issued denials that Zaha will leave, but they have sounded increasingly desperate, suggesting that they knew they were going to lose the England international. Now it seems that Alex Ferguson has stuck his oar in and will offer Palace the opportunity to keep Zaha for the season if they agree to sell him to United. .......Read the full article here
