Arsenal Are Looking Again at Colombian Striker


Arsenal are looking at Porto striker Radamel Falcao, according to reports from Portugal.

The Gunners looked at signing the Colombian striker two years ago but failed to snatch him from the Portugese side. However, after hitting 53 goals in 64 games for Porto, Arsenal are believed to be looking again.

The problem for Arsene Wenger is that Falcao’s release clause is set at 30 million euro – over £25 million – but a report in the Portugese newspaper A Bola suggests that Porto are already looking at a replacement in Rogelio Funes Mori from Argentine club River Plate – a player Manchester United have also looked at – and could be ready to cash in on one of their prized assets if they can bring in an immediate replacement.

Is He The Next Gunners Player Barcelona Wanna Steal?


Are recent transfer rumours emerging from Arsenal and Barcelona hinting at a move for Samir Nasri away from the Emirates Stadium? It seems so...

Arsenal’s Samir Nasri is arguably the most attractive footballer in the English Premier League right now. He is his club’s top scorer with 9 goals in the chart despite not being a striker. His consistent performance, his attacking instinct, and his formidable ball control has – according to Tribalfootball.com – transform him into a hot target in the eyes of Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola.

It has also been reported by the media in Catalonia that the Blaugrana are considering the idea of luring Samir Nasri away from Arsenal in the near future – especially if they fail to acquire Cesc Fabregas. But how could that be possible or even true?

Well, agent Jean-Pierre Bernes’ recent comments over Nasri’s future at the Emirates will only create more room for rumours to resound loudly. It is understood that Arsenal are looking forward to see the French midfielder sign a contract extension at the club. However, when Sky Sports News asked Bernes about the situation, the agent replied:

“We are in discussions to extend his contract. Then, we will see afterwards what direction Samir [Nasri] would want to take in his career.”

Like Barcelona’s recent signing Ibrahim Afellay presumed the last time out, it is impossible for any player not to dream about playing for the Catalans. Samir Nasri has never enjoyed silverware with Arsenal.

A transfer to Barcelona may help him achieve much more success in terms of trophies and status worldwide. In the meantime, Coach Arsene Wenger would want his players - including Samir Nasri - to focus for Arsenal's upcoming match against Leeds in the FA Cup.

- Arsenal still lack of finishing. Plus luck on the City's side when Gunners hit the post 3 times on the 1st half.
- All the Gunners players played very well with their individual and teamwork ability.
- City played a very boring game. Obviously defensive play.
- Joe Hart played very well for City.
- Sagna and Zabaleta shouldn't be off! Bad referee decision.
- Ball possession: Arsenal 62% - 38% Man City
- Shot on target : Arsenal 5 - 0 Man City

End of the day, both team shared 1 point and gave Man United a comfortable lead of the table.

Boring Boring CITY!~

Arsene Wenger Eyeing Mexican Goalkeeper


Arsenal and Manchester United are set to battle it out for Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa as both Premier League sides continue to search for new first-choice keepers.

With the news Mark Schwarzer has agreed a new deal at Fulham, Arsenal are once again in the market for a goalkeeper and reports suggest manager Arsene Wenger has turned his attention to Club America’s Ochoa.

The 25-year-old has played 40 times for his country and was part of Mexico’s 23-man squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Ochoa is out of contract in the summer and as a result has caught the eye of a number of European sides.

Arsenal in Battle With Spurs to Get Congo Defender


North London rivals Arsenal and Spurs could be on course to lock horms over Blackburn defender Christopher Samba in January, after the powerful defender said he wants to leave the club over the sacking of Sam Allardyce.

Samba, who has been one of the Premier League's most consistent defenders since his move to Rovers in 2007, has expressed his disappointment at the treatment of Allardyce.

And after an outburst in a national newspaper this week, the team captain looks set to put in a written transfer request with the hope of quitting Ewood Park in January.

'If this is the way the club's going to be run from now on, I don't want to be part of it and I want to leave,' he told the Sun.

'As captain it's very difficult to say this but I've thought long and hard about it. Nobody in football understands the decision to sack Sam.

'We could have been relegated last year and Sam saved the club, so how can he be treated like this now?'

Despite suggesting last month that Arsenal would not enter the transfer market, recent comments attributed to Arsene Wenger suggest he will look to add to his squad - if he can identify a player who will add another dimension to his squad at the right price.

While Samba, who is rated at around £8million by Rovers, certainly provides this, Wenger looks certain to face competition from other interested parties - most notably their nearest rivals.

Harry Redknapp has been a known admirer of Samba for several months - with speculation suggesting the Spurs boss had a bid for the physical centre-back rejected by Rovers in the summer.

But Samba, from the French-speaking African state of Congo, is not thought to have made any considered decisions on his future yet and will await offers next month.

Is he worth to buy? We already had enough defender throughout the campaign. What say you Gooners?
