WENGER: THEO WALCOTT STILL NEEDED AT ARSENAL

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger insists that Theo Walcott is still needed at the club. A legend of the same club Ian Wright advised Walcott to exit in the winter window but the French manager disagrees. Wenger wants the 28-year old to remain at the Emirates despite playing just 48 minutes in the Premier League this term.

Thomas Lemar Explains Decision to Reject £ 92 Million Move to Arsenal

Monaco winger Thomas Lemar says that he is extremely happy to remain at the French club after watching his £ 92 million move to Arsenal collapse on the transfer deadline day.


The French winger has been a target for Arsenal throughout the summer, but the gunners did not make a solid bid until the transfer deadline day. Barcelona and Liverpool had been showing plenty of interest in the player throughout the summer, but it was the latter who came in with official offer. Liverpool came up with an offer valued at around £ 65 million, but it was rejected by Monaco.

The French outfit have already sold several of their stars over the summer, and were not ready to lose Lemar. However, the £ 92 million offer from Arsenal proved enticing and it was accepted by Monaco. This was seen as a key move as it would have meant Alexis Sanchez moving to a Manchester City in at £ 60 million deal. However, Thomas Lemar decided to turn down the opportunity to sign for the gunners at the last moment. Continue reading Thomas Lemar Explains Decision to Reject £ 92 Million Move to Arsenal

WILSHERE CLOSE TO WEST HAM MOVE

Arsenal star Jack Wilshere is back in training at the north London club but he would join West Ham soon, according to reports.


The player got injured late last season but the 25-year old is expected to return to fitness soon enough for the move.

Wilshere was the Gunners’ youngest debutant in the league back in 2008 when he featured before he turned 17. His development at that young age was a beautiful sight. He was expected to grow into a star central midfielder or one that would feature behind strikers. After a short stint on loan to Bolton Wanderers, Arsene Wenger brought the player back to the Emirates.

Wilshere since returning has been injured almost on a regular basis. He was injured in the 2011/12 season. The ankle injury ensured he returned late 2012. He returned with a bang against QPR but has been going through a boom and bust cycle ever since. Continue reading WILSHERE CLOSE TO WEST HAM MOVE

JACK WILSHERE TO LEAVE ARSENAL?

After all the hype around him has worn off, the player is struggling to keep a shirt at the club. With more pressure on Arsene Wenger to get the league title, there is a slimmer chance that Wilshere would remain.

He is expected to go elsewhere for ‘development’ while Wenger employs others. There are strong rumours that Arsenal are trying to quickly tie down Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and MesutOzil.However, no one is even mentioning talks about Wilshere getting a new deal.
