  • Wed, 10 Aug 2022 08:38:43 +0000: Football transfer rumours: Milan’s Sandro Tonali to Arsenal for £50m? - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Today’s goss is counting down the days

    Arsenal are warming up the Emirates fax machine after making inquiries to Milan about Sandro Tonali, the 22-year-old holding midfielder who helped the Rossoneri win a Scudetto last season. The Milan manager, Stefano Pioli, wants to keep the former Brescia player, sometimes dubbed the “new Pirlo”, but a bid from the Gunners in the region of £50m may make things happen.

    Staying with Italian midfielders, Chelsea’s proposed move for Cesare Casadei of Internazionale looks to be in danger of being hijacked by Ligue 1’s Nice. Todd Boehly and co are said to have already had more than one offer rebuffed by Inter – the Nerazzurri reportedly want £20m as well as a buy-back clause – and it now seems the French club are willing to outbid the Blues in yet another transfer setback for Tommy Tuchel.

  • Tue, 09 Aug 2022 17:00:28 +0000: Granit Xhaka: ‘People say you don’t give everything for the club, but that’s bull’ | Nick Ames - Arsenal | The Guardian

    The Swiss midfielder on his surprising longevity at Arsenal, his admiration for Mikel Arteta and why fans should be allowed to come and watch training

    The behind-the-scenes documentaries so beloved of modern times are not known for their rough edges but, for Granit Xhaka, that was part of the point. He allowed the cameras into his home for the Amazon series that followed Arsenal last season and if it humanised him beyond the spiky, sometimes rash, often divisive but frequently highly effective character seen on the pitch then the film had done its work.

    “For me it is fine because I have nothing to hide,” he says. “I am Granit here and the same at home. Only on the football pitch do I have a different mask: people have to accept that.”

  • Mon, 08 Aug 2022 07:00:07 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Debutants made an impact on their first outings but some did far better than others on the opening weekend

    It is unfair to pick out one player from Manchester United’s dire opening display under Erik ten Hag but Lisandro Martínez seriously struggled against Brighton. These are, of course, the earliest of days for the new centre-back but he will have to learn fast. The diminutive Argentinian is a footballer the manager knows well but there are question marks over his stature. There will be serial aerial bombardment this season of the type he failed to deal with against Brighton, with Danny Welbeck rising highest above him when missing a close-range header in the second half. Martínez might also have conceded a penalty when bundling over the same player in a performance that did nothing to suggest the 24-year-old can help plug United’s leaky rearguard. Jamie Jackson

  • Sun, 07 Aug 2022 08:30:38 +0000: The week in TV: Irma Vep; The Sandman; All or Nothing: Arsenal; Paper Girls - Arsenal | The Guardian

    It’s meta madness as Olivier Assayas gets to remake his own film as a TV series; Old Testament meets Ouija board in Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy; and the Gunners get a going over

    All or Nothing: Arsenal (Amazon Prime) | amazon.co.uk

    You start to wonder if “meta” demanded its own trailer during the making of Irma Vep. It’s everywhere in this eight-part Sky Atlantic production, like Gauloises cigarette smog at an arthouse picnic.

  • Fri, 05 Aug 2022 23:01:40 +0000: Saliba and Zinchenko fire Arsenal’s early-season hopes in sultry opener | Barney Ronay - Arsenal | The Guardian

    Mikel Arteta’s new team were excellent in an encouraging opening-day victory at a scorched Selhurst Park

    Yes: the rumours are true. The Premier League, which never really went away, has returned. And it felt pretty good on a sultry Friday night, watching an Arsenal team of eager new moving parts do an excellent job of raising some tender early-season hopes at Selhurst Park.

    It was 24 degrees in South London as kick-off approached on the earliest date the English top tier has ever begun. This was a desiccated kind of heat, the grass scorched white, the sky a deathly blue. The English summer does at least have a sense of irony. To avoid the Gulf sun the Premier League will instead play through a heatwave in England.

Historic News Stories have been added below:

The summer transfer action is beginning to come hard and fast for Arsenal as they now have begun to receive many offers for the want away Dutch striker Robin Van Persie who is out of contract with the gunner at the end of next season. The clubs star player has made it clear he will not be signing a new contract with the gunners and this has prompted all of Europe’s top clubs to begin a bidding war for the phenomenal striker.

Another player who could be set to leave the Emirates stadium is Carlos Vela who is now in the middle of discussions for a transfer to the Spanish side Real Sociedad who are thought to be lining up a £5.000.000 deal for the Mexican international. Vela has been on the sidelines for some time now and it is clear that his future lies elsewhere and away from London.

The capture of Lucas Podolski from Cologne a few weeks back was meant to signal the start of a new era at Arsenal as the club have been trophy less for the past five years. The German international was seen as the perfect partner for Robin Van Persie but with the Dutch striker certainly on his way out of the Emirates it is now more than likely that Podolski will be leading the line along with another new signing up from in the form of up and coming superstar Olivier Giroud.

Another player who could be leaving the London club this summer is Marouane Chamakh who has found himself out of the picture at Arsenal for the past twelve month and has only started a handful of games during this time. The Morroccan international is wanted by Fiorentina and Dutch champions Ajax and the striker is keen on a move to either of these sides in search of first team football.

Arsenal are also said to be in for the highly thought of Egyptian defender Islam Ramadan who plays for his homeland club Haras El Hodood with the twenty one year old thought to be an integral part of Wengers new defensive plans. Ramadan has also attracted a huge amount of interest from some of Europe’s leading clubs including Lyon, Benfica and Sporting Lisbon.
