Wenger Set To Bring In New Russian Star?

Arsenal are set to replace Andrei Arshavin with his fellow countryman Alan Dzagoev next season after Arsene Wenger has run out of patience with the little Russian.

The 31 year old who joined Arsenal from Zenit in the summer of 2008 has struggled to adapt to the English game and was shipped back to Russia on loan this winter. With the loan deal due to expire shortly, Arsenal are willing to talk about a permanent deal although it’s not clear if Zenit will be keen on having him after he failed to impress during the loan.

However, Arsene Wenger is already contemplating signing another Russian this summer. Alan Dzagoev, the hero of Russia’s last match against the Czechs, is being touted as a possible replacement already. The 21 year old CSKA Moscow midfielder could come for cheap with just a year remaining on his present contract. It is believed though that Chelsea, who are on a summer spending spree, could hijack the player from Arsenal’s grasp. The midfielder who scored a brace in their opening Euro fixture is a self confessed Chelsea fan and might snub the Gunners if the European champions come calling.

 

Chelsea Sign Another Belgian Star

Chelsea set to land the ‘New Hazard’ within days after sealing the deal for the Belgian playmaker from Lille for an astonishing £32m.

Charly Musonda has decided to snub other Premier league suitors and join Chelsea, following the footsteps of conationals Hazard and Lukaku. The 15 year old has been closely followed by scouts from Arsenal and Manchester City but once again officials at Stamford Bridge have beaten them to the signature.

Charly Musonda, the son of former Zambian international Charles Musonda, plays for the Belgium national youth side. Along with Charly, his two brothers Tika and Lamisha are also set to join the London club this summer. After having already spent close to £80m this summer, Chelsea have shifted their focus to the long term future of the club by showing interest in the Musondas and Barcelona young star Sergi Roberto. Although a deal for the latter seems rather unlikely, the arrival of Musonda shows a clear shift in priorities at the club.

The terms of the contract offered are yet unknown but Charly is certainly a huge prospect and can make it big in the Premier league.

Sagna Out For Good?

Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna is set to miss the start of the next season due to the broken leg that he suffered in the dying stages of the last edition of Premier league.

The French defender has had a horrible time dealing with injuries last season and it is about to get worse as he is expected to miss the beginning of next season. This means that Sagna, who is already missing the action at the Euros, wouldn’t be able to accompany the squad for the pre-season to the Far East and Nigeria.

This injury will pave the way for Arsenal young star Carl Jenkinson who joined the club from Charlton last season. But if rumors would have it right, Wenger is looking for a better back up for the injury plagued Bacary Sagna in the transfer market.

Right now, enjoying his holidays Sagna expressed his severe disappointment in having to miss out on the Euros. But he is hopeful that in spite of his absence, France would do well this time.

Sagna said: “The French national team has come a long way since the World Cup and they will be keen to show that.

“They are playing well, are on a good run and should feel confident going into the Euros.

“I am so disappointed to miss it, but I believe France can win.

“It is a big test for France, because I know a lot of the English players but I believe we can win the game and have a strong squad which is together again.”

The French will face England in their first match of the Euros this evening.

Arsenal Officials Fear Robin Might Leave

The officials at Arsenal fear that Robin Van Persie could be set for an exit from the North London club after their failure to sign anybody but Podolski in the transfer window so far.

Van Persie is yet to sign a contract extension as he enters the final year of his existing contract at Arsenal. Last season’s top scorer of the Premier league is desperate to win trophies and has asked Arsene Wenger to make some quality signings this summer and transform the Gunners into a potential title winning side. According to the new contract, the Dutch ace is being offered £130k a week, a significant rise in wages, and a £5m sign on fee, but with the club’s inability to make top quality signings, it is highly unlikely that the front-man will agree to this deal according to football specialists from around the club.

Officials at the Emirates are determined not to be held to ransom by the prolific striker and may choose to hang on to him rather than sell him this summer. Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri both sealed a switch to Manchester City with a year remaining in their contracts and despite interest from Mancini, senior Van Persie has ruled out a move to the Eastlands.

“What the hell would Robin do at Barcelona? They already have Messi and it does not make sense to go”  said Van Persie’s father.

“And it is impossible to go to another English team.”

Arsene Wenger will be devastated to lose out on yet another star player but has already started looking for suitable replacements. Juventus are interested in the 27 year old and are even willing to offer a sum in excess of £25m to land the star at Turin. Will Arsenal lose out on yet another star or Wenger will pull off a final trick to persuade him to stay on?
