Picture of an Arsenal fan at the away section during the Europa League game between the Spurs and Monaco went viral on twitter. I suggest he is handed a national award for sheer bravery and goodwill. I mean those spuds are vengeful, they get back at us by breaking our toilets. Quite petty if you ask me.
The media just cannot understand that the manager dislikes the January transfer window, his latest reply continues in the path.
“I have already answered that question. I will go out there and see what we can do but at the moment we have a whole December to go in a good position in the Premier League.
What is more important is not to lose further players while we wait for the injured ones – more like new signings- according to the manager.
So it is important for me that we don’t lose more payers because we are short and that everybody contributes fully, like we did on Saturday and Wednesday, and have that consistency in January.
When the manager refuses to assure us, other sources will. Speaking on the ArseAmerica podcast, Philippe Auclair said:
“I would be amazed if there was not an effort from Arsenal to recruit in this particular department [defensive midfield] fairly swiftly.
“As a matter of fact I can tell you that there are already discussions going on between the club and a few possible targets.
“I would put them [Arsenal’s chances of signing a player] between 99% and 100%. That’s how confident I am.
Karim Benzema’s move to the Emirates is done and dusted after the manager stated emphatically that there is no way the club will sign the player, per talkSPORT he was quoted as saying:
“We just said that Olivier Giroud is a great striker, so behind that we cannot buy Karim Benzema.”
According to the Metro, Barcelona are preparing a bid for Hector Bellerin. Trust Wenger on this one, Lionel Messi ƚ cash is a good bargain for the 20-year-old.
News filtered in yesterday that Arsenal have concluded talks for Dynamo Moscow star Aleksandr Kokorin. This one seems to be true. Although yet to be confirmed by the manager. However, a reliable source confirms to gunnerscity that both clubs have agreed a fee in the region of £6m.
He is a perfect Wenger’s signing. He’s 24, almost a free agent and has decent stats for a striker. His club are arm-twisted in this deal as he is free to talk to clubs in January since his contract expires in the summer.
We hear reports that a Chinese club is tempting Manchester United with a whooping £75m bid for Wayne Rooney. Uhhm, considering Tottenham sold Bale and Liverpool sold Luiz Suarez, I suggest they sell since they all play in the Europa League.
