Arsenal Transfer News: Youngster Signs & Secret Signing Revealed?

By on June 4, 2011

Another day of interesting transfer gossip, speculation, rumors surrounding the Gunners today. Without further ado, here’s the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Gunners sign Swedish teenager Kristoffer Olsson



It has been confirmed today, that Arsenal have reached a deal with IFK Norrkopping of Sweden to sign their young talent, 15 year old Kristoffer Olsson, who is a Sweden U-16 international. The Gunners agreed to pay the club an “Educational Grant”, in order to convince them to let go of Olsson and send to him to London. Looks like another one for the future, let’s hope that Wenger buys some proven players soon.

Here’s the link to the article: http://justarsenal.com/arsenal-deal-for-swedish-starlet-confirmed/8246

Arsenal interested in signing Real Madrid’s Higuain

There are reports stating that Real Madrid are looking to offload their Argentinian striker, Gonzalo Higuain. The 23 year old is rated at around 15 million pounds by the club and has suffered with injury problems this season. I believe that Higuain is class, who is blessed with pace and skill, but I highly doubt the rumor and I think Madrid and Mourinho will be keen on keeping him.

Here’s a video of Higuain, displaying his talents:

Update: Samba hints at staying with Blackburn


Well, this isn’t good news as Blackburn skipper, Christopher Samba, has hinted in a press conference that he wants to stay with Blackburn. Samba states that “things have changed” and that “he is happy to stay”. Many Gooners want to see Samba as a Gunner, so this would be disappointing news for many, but in my opinion, if Wenger is serious about acquiring him, it’s not over yet.

Marco Silva’s “mystery” signing revealed

The shocking headline today that is grabbing Gooner attention all over Twitter. The famous Marco Silva, who claims to have various sources and connections, has revealed that the mystery signing that will be made official “by Monday or by the end of next week”, will be Lille star Gervinho. This news has caused a lot pandemonium amongst fellow Gooners all over the web, especially Twitter and Marco Silva has been gaining criticism and abuse. Honestly, I won’t be that surprised if Gervinho signs as Wenger is seriously interested in the Ivorian international, but I still have my doubts of course. If he gets this correct, then he deserves a huge apology.

What do you think? What are your thoughts on Wenger signing another youngster? Are you disappointed in the update on Samba? Do you want to see Higuain as a Gunner? Do you believe in the “revelation” by Marco Silva? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    What I want 2 tell Wenger is that atleast, he should signed two defender, two Mildfield, and One complete striker like V.persie, also to retain Nasri and Cesc at all cost.

    i think that its good to buy young players for the future and in ollsen i’ve heard a lot of good reports. higauin is a great player but is very injury prone, he’s not for me. i like lukaku he’s big, powerful and young, i also would love to see karim benzema at arsenal instead of higauin. chris samba is a good solid no nonsense defender, he’d be a good signing along with either per mertasacker or gary cahill. gervinho would also be an excellent addition.

    Youngsters transferred in should not be attributed to AW they are down to Liam Brady, Wenger may rubber stamp the deal but Brady is the guy pulling in the youngsters.

    It all depends on d no of players Mr.wenger wants, if he nids 1 strkr nd a midf, Gervinho n Defoe r nt wat Arsnl nids nw; Gervinho dribles a lot nd Defoe is short n scored only 3 times last season. I’d say Karim, falcao, Neymar. Midfield-Toulalan!!!

    You all think AW will all listen to us arsenal fans ? lol our manager is very stubborn he wont listen ..he will just do what he likes …we need strikers like falcao but he wont look this direction instead he will buy one striker from ligue 1 which will turn a mistake like chamakh

    If Sambe would rather stay at Blackburn than join us he can’t have much ambition but on the other hand he may well have and is not sure if he’d get a very good deal from us that’s the point! as we don’t open our purse strings very wide more’s the pity, and the question is are we losing our drawing power as a club?. A few years back the very mention of the name Arsenal meant something…..

    The gossip and rumour is getting easier and easier to disseminate. If a player is “old” AW will not buy, i.e. Odemwingle aged 29. If a player is expensive AW will not buy i.e. Benzema. If a player is experiences and know the EPL AW will not buy i.e. Cahill. Look back and learn my fellow gooners AW is in my opinion a spent force. His philosphy has failed. We have gone backwards and the “mental strength”….look at the last 10/12 games, there is none!

  24. Gunners 4all d time.

    Thank you all for commenting and sharing your opinions and thoughts.

    I really do hope that Wenger does sign proven and quality players, and not only youngsters. Let’s hope that there is better news in the next coming weeks, regarding transfers.

    Cheers and take care everyone,
