Football News

With Arsenal fans sitting on cloud nine after their FA Cup quarterfinal victory over Manchester United, there’s not much that will bring them down.

Arsene Wenger’s side are looking back to their best of late and have now recorded wins over both Manchester giants, perhaps indicating that they’re poor recent record against big sides is no more. What could make the situation better you ask? Well a heap of positive news fresh from this morning’s gossip column is what.

Here we’ve collected the biggest Gunners news we could get our hands on. Unless you’re a practising pessimist or just don’t like Arsenal very much, you should be suitably satisfied.

Moreno link

First and foremost there’s a chunk of fresh information coming from Spain that should whet the appetite of those in north London. Spanish daily Marca’s front page today leads with a story on the future of Mexico centre-back Hector Moreno, with it being claimed that Arsenal have retained an informal interest in him despite the fact they signed Gabriel Paulista in January.

The article in question goes on to suggest that Espanyol are expecting suitors to pay €10 million for Moreno this summer, meaning that the Gunners could be handed an experienced defender on a plate if they’re willing to cough up a little dough. Recent rumours have inferred Wenger could dispense of the services of Per Mertesacker come the end of the season; if he does he’ll need to replace him.

£50m kitty

In other transfer news it’s said that Wenger will have a transfer kitty to the tune of £50 million to play with in the next market, with three players sitting in his sights. Chelsea star Petr Cech joins Southampton ace Morgan Schneiderlin and Borussia Dortmund’s Neven Subotic to form a very attractive trio Arsenal might well look to bring in.

Cech is an experienced professional who would certainly be an improvement on both Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina, whilst Schneiderlin could give the Gunners the muscle they’ve been lacking in midfield. Subotic’s link is a surprising inclusion, but going back to replacing Mertesacker he might be an ideal fit.

Wilshere update

Lastly Wenger has offered an update on the fitness of midfielder Jack Wilshere, insisting that the England international is not back training with the first-team just yet. The Frenchman said the youngster is progressing well but it doesn’t look like he will be returning to the fold in time for this Saturday’s clash with West Ham.
