Arsenal to spend BIG on transfers with Karim Benzema on radar

After finally securing his first trophy in almost a decade Arsene Wenger was rewarded with a new contract, which may please some Arsenal fans and annoy others. Nonetheless Arsene Wenger will remain the manager of Arsenal and will be delighted to hear that he will be being backed this summer in the transfer window according to Sky sources.

Don’t be surprised to see Arsenal spend big this summer and potentially break their transfer record that the signing of Mesut Ozil broke the previous summer. With a transfer kitty reported to be in the excess of £100 million many Arsenal fans may finally get their wish as they look to bring in some world class talent.

 

But who?

Here are a few players that Arsenal are keeping tabs on as they intend to reinforce the strength of the squad:

1. Serge Aurier (Toulouse) is a promising young right back and has been heavily linked with a move as they look to replace Bacary Sagna who looks set to leave the Emirates in the hunt of a new challenge. Serge Aurier may be available for ‘as little’ as £7 million.

2. Lars Bender (Bayern Leverkuson) is another man that has heavily been linked with Arsenal in recent weeks. He is a tall solid defensive midfielder that plays for Bayern Leverkuson, which is currently needed in the Arsenal’s midfield to help take some of the pressure off heavily relied upon midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

3. Micah Richards (Manchester City) is on his way out of Manchester City and it may be a great decision for Arsene Wenger to take on the experienced defender who has surprisingly faded out of the premierleague after showing signs of becoming a great England defender in the past. Arsenal will be able to get him on the cheap and he would really boost Arsene Wenger’s options in defense.

4. Morgan Schneiderlin (Southampton) may be good option for Arsenal with Ramsey and Wilshere both having spent lengthy spells on the sidelines with injuries this term, central midfield is an area that greatly needs strengthening because of the recurrence of injuries that seems to plague this position.

5. Karim Benzema (Real Madrid) would undoubtedly be a great signing for Arsenal with a lot of their reliance being put upon the shoulders of Oliver Giroud, who has done well but could do with some assistance. Benzema’s purchase would really lift the whole team as Mesut Ozil’s purchase from Real Madrid also did at the beginning of last season.

6. Loic Remy (QPR) would be a good cheaper alternative to Karim Benzema. He has demonstrated this season that he deserves to play at a higher level than Newcastle and Arsene Wenger is a keen admirer of the top striker.

7. Cesc Fabregas (Barcelona) would obviously be an ideal signing for Arsene Wenger who had to let him go a few years ago. With him seemingly falling out with the board at Barcelona it looks like he may be on his way back to the premierleague, but where to? Only time will tell. We will follow all of these transfer stories closely! Let us know who you want Arsenal to buy by commenting below.

Arsenal Set to Bid for £24m Rated La Liga Winger!!!

arsenal

Arsenal are readying a fresh bid for highly rated Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been given a boost in the pursuit of the 22 year old French forward after Griezmann admitted he could leave his La Liga club in order to assist his push for a first call-up to the senior national team set-up.

“I am relaxed about my future at the moment,” he told radio station RMC .

“I have not had talks other clubs yet. This is something to look at.

“I want to play for a leading European team and I hope this can help me get a place in the France team.”

Arsenal failed with a £12m bid for Griezmann and have been told to fork out twice that amount if they want to land the talented wide-man, a bid that Wenger may be more likely to consider now that Theo Walcott has been ruled out for the rest of the season.

Griezmann is into his fifth season at Basque side Real Sociedad and has been in marvelous form, scoring 12 goals in 17 La Liga fixtures this term, a strike rate that is phenomenal for any player not plying their trade for one of Spain’s giants Barcelona or Real Madrid.

What are the chances of it happening? 7/10 for me.

The 3 Best New Premier League Players

Mesut Özil: £42.5 Million from Real Madrid Club de Fútbol

Arsenal fans couldn’t believe it when the news was released that Özil had signed a long term contract with the club. Nobody could believe it. Not even us at Clever Bets could have predicted it. Not that any Arsenal fan would admit it, but they certainly have Spurs to thank for his arrival. Gareth Bale leaving Tottenham and moving to Madrid was the queue for Özil to make his move to the Premier League.

The German has been a main feature in the Arsenal line up this season; with 15 premier league games under his belt he already boasts 4 goals and 7 assists (second in the premier league) for the gunners. Even bagging a vital goal against Napoli in the Champions League some would say that £42.5 million is looking like the bargain of the season so far. The major worry would be keeping Özil fit for the rest of the season, if Arsenal manage that then German could be looking at a Premier League medal at the first time of asking.

 

 

Álvaro Negredo: £16.4 Million from Sevilla

Just one of many usual big money signings for Man City over the summer, but he has held his own in the Premier League this season. With 13 starts for the sky blues and 5 appearances off the bench Negredo is already pushing double figures with a goal tally of 8 league goals. The most notable coming on Boxing Day to see off an inform Liverpool side 2-1.

It seems that Negredo saves his best performances for the Champions League, netting 5 times for Man City in 6 appearances. This statistic will even be making the Barcelona defense nervous for their upcoming last 16 Champions League clash. Negredo is a player that has won us many football tips as anytime goalscorer and will surely do so in the future.

 

 

Adnan Januzaj: £500,000 from Anderlecht (2 years ago)

Talk about playing with pressure on your shoulders when you’re compared to the likes of Ryan Giggs or even George Best at the age of 18. David Moyes believes that Januzaj has something special and managed to persuade the youngster to put pen to paper in a contract that lasts until June 2018. One for the future most definitely, with Moyes not taking his time in integrating the youngster into the first team. He has shown promise with 13 appearances in the Premier League and recording 3 goals and 2 assists.

Although lately Januzaj has been making headlines for the wrong reasons, taking a leap out of Ashley Young’s guide on how to play football, he will be a Manchester United star player for many years.
