Arsene Wenger sets sights on Gerard Martino in search for new Arsenal forward - roundup

Football News

Whilst most other clubs have broken up for the summer holidays and their fans have gone into hibernation until the transfer window opens, Arsenal supporters have one last big weekend to look forward to.

The FA Cup final is looming large and it promises to be a banger. If the Gunners win they’ll boast back-to-back domestic cup successes, whereas if Tim Sherwood’s un-fancied Villa side steal the show they could muster up a big enough shock to give Arsene Wenger a headache that lasts until next term kicks off.

In any case the point we’re trying to make is that Arsenal remain very much in the forefront of the footballing world. What does that mean? It means news of course! Don’t you people know anything?

Wenger's Spanish interest

Kicking off our Arsenal report today we look at the surprise rumours suggesting Wenger has turned his attentions to Spain in a bid to provide competition for Olivier Giroud.

More specifically it’s Villarreal and Gerard Moreno that the Frenchman has his sights trained on, with the 23-year-old forward possessive of a buy-out clause worth a paltry £3 million. Given that Moreno can lay claim to having bagged 16 goals in 27 appearances this season he’s a credible candidate, if a little lacking in repute.

Whether or not fans will readily accept that Wenger is interested in hiring another player of potential rather than focusing on the finished product remains to be seen, but at the end of the day progress is progress… right?

Walcott progress

Moving swiftly on we turn to Theo Walcott, whose had his name in more headlines recently than he’s scored goals for Arsenal. The latest batch of news concerning the English winger suggests that he is to hold fresh contract talks following the FA Cup final, and he could be open to staying with the club.

Walcott is believed to be demanding guarantees about first-team football from Wenger if he’s to stay in north London, though the idea of him being offered up in some sort of proposal for Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling hasn’t been poured down the drain just yet.

Mourinho jibe

Last but not least we’ve included a slightly controversial piece based around Jose Mourinho’s end of season awards speech, wherein he ridiculed Arsenal by way of joking that they’d asked the FA to change the length of a season so it was confined simply to the second-half.

Playing upon the fact the Gunners performed so well in the second-half of the campaign, Mourinho also fired barbs at Manchester United and Manchester City, but it’s all in jest. We hope.
