Arsenal Transfer News: Jagielka | Parker | Lukaku | JET | Nasri | Carzola

Arsenal To Make Improved Bid For Jagielka

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal will make an improved bid to sign Everton’s Phil Jagielka,after the Gunners reportedly had a 10 million pound bid rejected for Jagielka’s services, a few days ago. The Gunners will offer as much as 15 million pounds in order to secure Jagielka’s signature.

I’m not sure if Everton will accept this new proposal, as they reportedly value Jagielka at 20 million pounds and is one of their star players and who Everton want to hold onto. I believe if Wenger isn’t willing to pay that much money upfront and wants to seal this deal, then he should offer a player as a makeweight like Bendtner, who Everton are reportedly interested in.

In the Same Article: Arsenal Still Interested In Scott Parker

The Daily Mirror suggest that the Gunners are still interested in signing Scott Parker, but his wages of around 60,000 pounds, are a stumbling block to any potential deal. Parker is reportedly valued at around 6-10 million pounds.

I believe that the team needs a holding midfielder, a midfielder with experience and quality to provide Alex Song with serious competition and guidance to rising, young talents like Emmanuel Frimpong, and Scott Parker fits that bill. My preferred option would’ve been Alou Diarra, as he has European experience, but Scott Parker would be a good signing as well. He is an excellent passer, a hard-worker, has lots of experience, good tackler, a leader and would provide some steel to the team.

Arsenal To Hijack Chelsea’s Bid For Lukaku

Fascinating news, again suggested by the Daily Mirror, as they state that the Gunners are willing to hijack Chelsea’s bid for Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku, is reportedly valued at around 18 million pounds and is considered as one of Europe’s best young talents, known for his power and physique.

I really would love to see Lukaku in an Arsenal shirt, he has all the attributes to be a huge success for the Gunners and in the Premier League. But to be honest, I still believe he’ll end up at Chelsea.

JET Set To Leave The Gunners

According to Sky Sports, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is on his way out this summer, with many Championship teams interested in him and that many have agreed terms with the Gunners. JET is regarded as one the Gunners’ brightest prospects and got the attention of many fellow Gooners with his stunning goal vs Everton in the Reserve League. Unfortunately, it is said that JET has attitude and behavioral problems which effected his progress and career with the Gunners.

The report also states that Arsenal are willing to sell him for around 1 million pounds, along with a huge sell-on fee, and that he will make a decision on where he will be headed to next, early next week. Burnley, Ipswich and Portsmouth are among those reportedly interested in him, according to Sky Sports.

If JET does leave, then I wish him the best of luck in the future.

Nasri Rejects New Contract

According to The Sun, Samir Nasri has rejected a new contract offer, worth around 115,000 pounds per week. The report also states, that Nasri “told club pals” that he is willing to stay for another year and leave for free the next summer.

To be honest, I don’t really believe in this story, not only because it comes from The Sun, but also because of the “he told club pals” part. It doesn’t look truthful at all too me, but this contract stalling is worrying me and if Nasri has, indeed, rejected a new contract then in my opinion, the Gunners should sell him.

Arsenal Seriously Interested In Cazorla

According to Ben Hayward of Goal.com, Arsenal are seriously interested in Villareal’s Santiago Cazorla, as a potential Fabregas replacement, but that the move depends on whether Giuseppe Rossi will leave the club and if Cesc Fabregas leaves the Gunners. Cazorla is reportedly valued at around 20-23 million pounds, and not 18 million pounds which I wrote in my last post, I apologize for that error.

I’ll say this again, which is that I am a huge fan of Santiago Cazorla and I rate him highly. He’s a top player, creative, skillful and dynamic; he would be an excellent signing for the Gunners.

What do you think? Should Wenger up his offer for Jagielka? Should he go for Parker? Do you want to see Bartley go on another loan spell? Do you think that JET should leave the club? Should Nasri be sold, if he rejects or rejected a new contract? Do you see Cazorla as a suitable replacement for Fabregas, if he leaves?

Also, what are your thoughts on the Arsenal vs Koln match? What did you think of Gervinho’s excellent debut and overall performance of the team?

Please share your thoughts and opinions.

    we should definitely go for Jagielka and 15 mil should be more than enough. if Everton holds back for 20mil, then they take a pi**. I personally don’t think Parker would improve the squad. he’s slow too. Lukaku would be an interesting signing, hope it happens.

    Jagielka is top class, we should go for him! We need also a LB= Baines/Cissokho, a DM and a CF= Benzema. If Cesc leaves maybe Mata/Cazorla/Ribery as a replacement!
    Sell Almunia, Squilachi, Bendtner!

    My preferred options: Samba in place of jagielka or cahill and if you want to approach everton, approach them for baines. Another thing is Parker needs to come and nsari and fabregas need to go. They don’t want to play, no use of keeping them. They won’t play well anyways. So, f*** them!

    AW why 15mil for jakielga and why not use the money plus squillaci for Cahill deal.also sell B52 and eboue to buy a quality midfielder like hazard or arteta

    Get Cissokho at lb and if poss Samba, Blackburn only paid 700gran for him wat 4yrs ago they know now they would be lucky to get ten mil for him as no one else is coming in for him and there are others on the market so i beleive they will drop the price or maybe add bendtner or eboue to the deal.
    And forget more strikers just add Hazard to link up with Gervi again and were sausagerolling!

    Scott parker maybe somethings but a creative midfielder her is not. Lets keep Fab his got 4 yrs on his contract and he can go to Barca later in his Career,plus im not buying into this whole transfer saga its saturated in media hype and it seems every Goon is buying into it and waving goodbye to our captain got a funny feeling it was a smokescreen to allow Barca to get Sanchez without a bidding war upping the price and where are they gona get the wages from if they cant afford the fee. we are closer than ever to clinching some of that precious silver metal and Barca are not that interested in Cesc as he was not there 1st target, so he is already 2nd choice b4 he has evan joined,there words say onething and there actions another.
    Not trying to be deluded but Nasri was quick enough to speak nout the last thing i heard from Cesc was praise for the performance in Germany!

    FOR ME, FABREGAS AND NASRI THOUGH GOOD PLAYERS OF HIGH REPUTE NEED TO LEAVE NOW. FABREGAS WANTED TO LEAVE LAST SEASON, WE KEPT HIM AND HE DID NOT PERFORM TO CAPACITY. NASRI IS UP AGAIN WITH THE SAME TUNE. THEY SHOULD LEAVE. ARSENAL DID NOT MAKE NAME WITH THEM. WHO KNOWS, THEIR DEPARTURE MAY HERALD A FINE SEASON

    I thinks 15m is nt too much for him, and we samba too. Please mr Wenger sell Nasri&Fabregas, so let us start new plane.

    Please can anyone tell me if Man City actually put in a bid for Nasri. Any which way he needs to go.
    Fabregas saga must also end. Let Barca give up a young star and pay Arsenal £25m.
    I agree, give Everton Bentner and say £10m.
    If not, why not pay £17m for Cahill, better than Jags for 15m
    LB looks really weak, need some Wenger magic in the transfer window and find a rough diamond
    Only need a creative midfielder and not need to replace Fabregas. Just change our tactics, 2 strikers instead of Fab who often acted as a deep attacking mid who was struggling to pass and has a weak shot.

    Sell Fabergas and Nasri. They no longer want to play for arsenal so let them go.
    I think Parker would be a good buy.
    Bartley proved last season what a good player he is when on loan to rangers so he deserves his chance with Arsenal
