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!
There is a new transfer rumour concerning Arsenal, but I would be very surprised if anything came of it. Apparently the former Gunner and Cameroon international midfielder Alex Song could be available in January, after failing to establish himself in the Barcelona team.
Song may have hoped that things would get better this season under the new manager of the Spanish champions, but the 26-year old still spends most of his time on the bench under Tata Martino so, according to a report in the Mirror, he could be on his way back to the Premier League. The report claims that Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on the situation.
Alex Song once again linked with Arsenal! by Ash
Arsenal rarely get linked to their former players when it comes to transfer news and if there is a report, it’s usually an Arsenal legend like Thierry Henry or Cesc Fabregas, however the rumour circulating now is that another current FC Barcelona man Alex Song is hinting at a possible return to the Gunners.
There have been plenty of reports about what Mesut Ozil would bring to Arsenal, and he is already proving to be a massive influence, even though it usually takes time for players from other leagues in Europe to get used to the fast and frenetic English form of the beautiful game.
As reported by the Daily Star, Ozil has an app on his personal website that shows his stats over his career, and it shows that his stats have actually improved since the midfield star moved to Arsenal.
Would you take Alex Song back at Arsenal? by Ash
After just 18 months in sunny Spain, former Arsenal player Alex Song is reportedly considering his future at Barcelona, with severe concerns over a lack of playing time for the defensive midfielder. Alex Song only joined Barcelona in the summer transfer window of 2012, and although his move wasn’t as controversial compared to the likes of Van Persie, Fabregas and Nasri, it was still a massive shock to see the Cameroonian leave the club that had made him the player he is today.
The facts Arsenal fans need by Big Gun
Dear Gooners, If we are to unite as one voice to try and resolve these issues at Arsenal, we need to look at exactly what the problem is. I wrote an article not too long ago and I mentioned it, but most fans are still seeing red and will blame everything under the sun as to why Arsenal is in such a predicament.
Wenger boos justified by GP
To all Arsenal fans, I feel your pain tonight, however some fans deserve more sympathy than others. Those of us who have criticised Wenger’s lack of hunger and ambition for improvement have sometimes been abused on this site.
Gustavo unlikely to join Gunners by Ash
All summer Arsenal fans have been calling for Wenger to address the midfield when it comes to looking to sign players and it seems that the main target man wanted by Gunner fans at the moment is Bayern Munich and Brazil international defensive central midfielder Luis Gustavo.
Arsenal have arguably been missing a proper central defensive midfielder ever since the Gilberto Silva days, and although many will argue that the likes of Alex Song have since had a go at the role, he never really became a true DM and that’s where a lot of our problems supposedly lay.
Exodus of Arsenal’s best players by Big Gun
Dear Arsenal fans, I wrote an article a few days ago about why Wenger is just as much to blame as Gazidis and the board, as to why we have yet to see any stellar signings (past and present) and ultimately why Arsenal have not succeeded in winning a trophy in almost a decade. I would like to extrapolate as to why this will be detrimental to the future of our club as a whole.
What’s a more important signing, an attacking midfielder or a defensive midfielder? by KJ
As the Arsenal fans grow impatient at the lack of signings, there have been many debates on the players we need the most. Signing a striker is obviously a must. Giroud has had a decent first season but personally has proved that he isn’t cut out to be the striker that will lead us to the title. We clearly need someone else and looking at the rumours, we might be on the verge of signing one on Monday.
Arsenal’s midfield key to challenging? by Ash
In my opinion Arsenal have had one of the Premier League’s most talented midfields for a number of years now. In our glory days our midfield was pivotal to our success with a lot of the team revolving around main anchor-man Vieira. After that we went through our struggle but once again managed to build a forceful and talented midfield in Fabregas, Song/Wilshere and Nasri. Of course we then lost three out of four of those players and have once again become rather weak in midfield although there’s no doubt that the combination of Arteta, Wilshere and Cazorla is talented, it’s nothing like the old days and so Wenger is looking to strengthen this area of the team, knowing that the midfield can really be the place on the field that determines your success in the outcome of a game.
Arsenal and Wanyama by Stefan
Victor Wanyama has admitted that he is in talks with several clubs over a possible transfer in the coming weeks. This news will come as a good and positive sign to the Arsenal fans who have been calling for the club to sign him up immediately, although Wanyama refused to reveal which clubs were talking to him, meaning that it could be several totally unexpected foreign clubs.
