Can Lacazette's Goals Bring Back the Glory Days for Arsenal?

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal side have been left behind by their rivals in recent years when it comes to competing for the Premier League title. But now with the signing of Alexandre Lacazette, can the Gunners find themselves back on top of the pile come May next year?   The Frenchman arrives for a club record fee of £52 million, from French Ligue 1 side Lyon where he has played 275 games and scored 129 in all competitions.

Olivier Giroud: Arsenal’s Unappreciated Goalscorer

Olivier Giroud: Arsenal’s Unappreciated Goalscorer

Last year, Arsenal were that close to signing Leicester’s Jamie Vardy for a £25 million transfer fee. But Vardy never put pen to paper. Upon reflection, between his tins of Thunder snuff tobacco and cans of Red Bull, Vardy made one of his better decisions. He realised that his limited, direct attacking skills did not fit well with Arsenal’s more intricate, build-from-the-back, short passing in tight spaces requirements. Vardy backed out of the move. Had the transfer been completed, the addition …
Kyle Walker – Manchester City’s Expensive Plan B

Kyle Walker – Manchester City’s Expensive Plan B

One of the most interesting facts that struck me at the beginning of this transfer window was the number of players who were left without a contract beyond this summer at Manchester City.  Also, more than the number, were the names of the players who were released on a free by City – Bacary Sagna, Jesus Navas, Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta, and Willy Cabalero.

Naby Keita - Where Would he fit in at Liverpool?

Naby Keita has emerged as one of Liverpool's priority transfer targets over the last few months and their pursuit of the RB Leipzig midfielder is beginning to heat up. Goal report that the Reds are leading the chase for one of the hottest properties in European football, while the Mirror state that they are prepared to smash their transfer record to land the 22-year-old. That currently stands at £35 million, which they paid for Andy Carroll in January 2011. That was …

Analysing Bournemouth's Rumoured Approach for Jermain Defoe

In just their second ever top division season Bournemouth finished in the top half of the Premier League, finishing ninth on 46th points, only behind local rivals Southampton on goal difference. After finishing 16th in their first ever season in the Premier League, the Cherries managed to improve on their position in their second season, despite some questionable transfers last summer.  They'll look to consolidate their position as a top half Premier League team this summer and improve on the …
