Is this Arsenal’s most disastrous summer of recent times?

Well it is a dramatic statement I know, but I am beginning to feel that way. Previous summers have felt like torture for Arsenal fans as they have watched their star players leave for other clubs. But this year has been worse. In many ways it has completely undermined my confidence in the club and its management and its ability …

How the Bale transfer saga could torpedo Arsenal’s Suarez deal

I might not be a Spurs fan but in a weird way as a Gooner I can understand a little bit of what the club are going through. You have a world class player (see also Fabregas, van Perise etc) and summer after summer Europe’s elite clubs are circling round them while your management team is adamant they are going …

Arsenal transfer update: Chelsea’s Juan Mata linked by UK paper

Normally I would put this story in the file marked pure speculation. However it comes from The Independent, which isn’t a paper that is usually big on wildly unsubstantiated football rumours. Anyhow the paper is claiming that… Arsenal could be about to launch an audacious bid for Chelsea’s Juan Mata, with manager Arsene Wenger keeping an eye on the midfielder’s …

£40 milllion for Suarez – are Arsenal getting desperate?

A couple of papers this morning are reporting that Arsene Wenger has been given the green light to make a £40million bid for Luis Suarez. The size of the bid will allegedly trigger a clause in Suarez’s contract which could then make it up to him whether or not he moves south to London. This is either the most audacious …

Rooney? Suarez? Lewandowski? Are Arsenal running out of options?

It is never a good thing to be jealous of other people’s wealth, but I can’t help but think that Arsene Wenger must be little envious at the moment of the stash of cash currently banked somewhere in Naples. For even though the Arsenal manager has apparently been given £70-1000 million to spend, his counterpart at Napoli, is now sitting …

Its is still speculation, but Goal are suggesting that rather than go back to their original number one transfer target Gonzalo Higuain, the Gunners are preparing a £35 million offer for Luis Suarez. Arsenal offered £30 million last week, but we knocked by Liverpool. However £35 million might just be enough to convince the Reds that they should part with …

Launch new kit. Tick. Dispose of a few deadwood players. Tick. Sign some new ones. Well hopefully that will be Arsene Wenger’s agenda this week and top of his wants list appears to be Luis Suarez.

Checked out Spurs new kit? Created by Under Armour we rather like its retro 60s feel. Nevertheless the launch did provide a few clues as to what may or may not be going on at the Lane. The only player who looked comfortable and was enjoying himself at the launch was Michael Dawson. From this I guess not only is …

So, we are rapidly approaching the middle of July and Arsenal still haven’t signed a player – apart from of course that young, French, injury-prone striker.

He signed a new contract in 2012 so Wenger thinks he has a future at the club and maybe he could be along term replacement for Arteta? But in letting Coquelin go Wenger has sent …

Arsenal update: Higuain is in London, but Spanish paper says he is staying in Madrid

I really think that the ongoing negotiations for the signature of Gonzalo Higuain are not doing Arsenal any favours at all. The way the saga has dragged on, and the club’s seeming inability to agree a deal with Real is starting to reflect badly on the club. But at least today will be the day that Arsenal sign the Argentinian …
