Arsenal in race to sign £40m 'new Ronaldo' Goncalo Guedes

Arsene Wenger says he was disappointed to watch his team stumble to a 2-1 defeat against Swansea yesterday, which rounds off a miserable week for the Gunners.

The Frenchman watched his side throw away a 1-0 win against Gary Monk’s outfit which means they drop to sixth in the Premier League table. Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring at the Liberty Stadium only for Gylfi Sigurdsson to level things up before Bafetimbi Gomis bagged the winner.

Arsenal are now 12 points off of Chelsea at the top of the table and Wenger was less than impressed with his team afterwards.

"It's disappointing to throw a game away like we did," he said. "We were 1-0 up and had to be tight defensively and wait for that second chance. But you have to credit Swansea who didn't give up. We eased off at 1-0 and let them back into the game."


The defeat comes after Arsenal threw away a 3-0 lead against Anderlecht in the Champions League - and it seems some fans have had just about enough. The hashtag WengerOut was trending on Twitter yesterday, urging Arsene Wenger to end his 18-year reign at the club.

Next onto the transfer window and the Gunners are being linked once more with Goncalo Guedes. The 17-year-old Benfica starlet has been labelled the new Cristiano Ronaldo and has a £40 million release clause.

They will however have to beat off competition from the likes of Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain, while Metro report that his hefty price tag may be too much for Wenger to pay for an unproven player.
