Arsène Wenger, OBE (born 22 October 1949) is a French football manager and former player. Marouane Chamakh (born 10 January 1984) is a Moroccan footballer who plays for English club Arsenal in the Premier League and the Moroccan national team as a striker. 5.0/5

A man who divides opinion, but for me Olivier Giroud is one of the worst forwards Arsene Wenger has signed. Of course, we’ve had players Marouane Chamakh, Park Chu-Young, Nicklas Bendtner and Gervinho but they were never been our main strikers. Since Arsene Wenger joined Arsenal in September of 1996, the main strikers at Arsenal have been Ian Wright, Dennis Bergkamp, Nicholas Anelka, Thierry Henry, Nwankwo Kanu, Davor Suker, Robin Van Persie, Emmanuel Adebayor, Eduardo and now Olivier Giroud. He’s not even in the same league as the rest of those players, and the list includes the biggest wanker that is Adebayor. He’s not good enough. He wouldn’t get into any other Top 10 side, nevermind any Top 4 team. Manchester City have Aguero, Jovetic, Dzeko and Negredo, Liverpool have Suarez and Sturridge, Chelsea even have Torres and Eto’o who are past it but they’re still better than Giroud. In a nutshell, his ability to miss the simplest of chances has cost Arsenal dearly this season. With a top class ...
LONDON EVENING STANDARD Eden Hazard has revealed that Chelsea are starting to feel the pace of a long season and hopes fatigue will not cost them in the title race. Arsene Wenger has revealed Arsenal are conducting an investigation into their medical and training methods after the club's injury list was exacerbated by setbacks for Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil. Jan Vertonghen admits Sunday's North London derby has taken on added significance for Tottenham following their Europa League defeat to Benfica. Tony Pulis admits Marouane Chamakh's hamstring injury is a big blow to Crystal Palace's Premier League survival bid.

MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS Wayne Rooney stands on the brink of goalscoring greatness ahead United's clash with Liverpool.

Arsenal 2-0 Crystal Palace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's double helped Arsenal back to the top of the Barclays Premier League with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. The England midfielder broke the deadlock shortly after half-time on his return to the side at Emirates Stadium, before he wrapped the game up on 72 minutes finishing a flowing move. Arsene Wenger's men were made to work hard against a typically resolute Palace, but victory sees returns them to the summit, although Manchester City can reclaim top spot if they beat Chelsea on Monday. After a first half lacking in many clear-cut chances, Oxlade-Chamberlain brought the game to life by guiding an effort past Julian Speroni from a superb chip over the top by by Santi Cazorla two minutes after the break. The 20-year-old confirmed the win with a driven strike, as Arsenal made it 10 matches without defeat in all competitions. Oxlade-Chamberlain was recalled in place of the suspended Mathieu Flamini in midfield. Marouane Chamakh started against his former clu ...
Arsène Wenger believes the form of Robin Van Persie made it difficult for Marouane Chamakh to make a sustained impact at Arsenal.
Crystal Palace will begin life without manager Ian Holloway against Premier League leaders Arsenal at Selhurst Park this weekend at 1445hrs. Palace are yet to appoint a new manager. For the time being, Palace will be under the leadership of Holloway's former assistant Keith Millen, but rumours are rife that ex-Stoke City manager Tony Pulis could be the next man in the hotseat. Going through such a transition is not ideal for Palace, who will have to face in-form Arsenal after securing just one victory out of eight league fixtures in the campaign. In contrast, Arsene Wenger's Gunners side are at the top of the table having remained unbeaten in their last seven fixtures, their latest being a 4-1 win over Norwich City. In the five times that these two sides have played against each other, Arsenal have come out on top three times, while Palace have not grabbed one victory over the North London outfit. Palace are likely to stick with Marouane Chamakh and Dwight Gayle up front, while Jack Wilshere could miss o ...

Arsenal News as wanted; EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW! Arsenal Co-Owner Wants Arsenal to Sign Rooney Alisher Usmanov has pleaded with Arsene Wenger to make a move for Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The Arsenal shareholder insisted the forward would be a ‘big success’ at the Gunners. Usmanov has given his backing for the club to make a mega money offer for Rooney. The club have been handed a staggering £70 million war chest and are expected to use the first piece of it to sign Gonzalo Higuain for £22 million. The Argentine’s arrival would dampen any efforts to bring in further strikers Rooney, Stevan Jovetic or David Villa with the club already having Olivier Giroud and new recruit Yaya Sanogo while the futures of Gervinho, Marouane Chamakh, Niklas Bendtner and Park Ju-Young still uncertain. The Uzbek billionaire has been frozen out of the Arsenal board but has stood by the club and remains hopeful of completing a takeover in the future, which would give Arsenal heavy investment. He has stoo ...
Manager Arsene Wenger should not be trusted to spend Arsenal's summer transfer budget, according to former Gunners midfielder Stewart Robson. Robson told talkSPORT: "I am not expecting any marquee signings at Arsenal. There is a lot of talk about it, but I don't know if I would trust Arsene Wenger with that money. "Over the last few years some of the players that he has said were going to be world class haven't ended up like that - people like Philippe Senderos, Denilson, Marouane Chamakh, Armand Traore, Sebastien Squillaci, Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela, Emmanuel Eboue, Park Chu-young, Lukasz Fabianski, Gervinho and Andre Santos." -MR
Andrey Arshavin, Sebastian Squillaci and Denilson have already left this summer, freeing up millions in wages. If Arsene Wenger can sell the likes of Marouane Chamakh, Park Chu Young, Andre Santos, Johan Djourou, and Nicklas Bendtner this could free up space and money for expensive players such as Rooney and Fabregas, and maybe even allow space for Arsenal to sign a defensive midfielder. If Arsene Wenger follows the steps above, there is no doubt that Arsenal would win some silverware next season.
Arsene Wenger needs to spend his way out of this crisis By Eurosport | Jan Molby – 1 hour 51 minutes ago Jan Molby I think the key to Arsene Wenger's future at Arsenal is him promising to the board that he will spend big money on big-name players. If he does, then I think he has a future at the club. What Wenger cannot do is take any more gambles on unproven talent - players like Marouane Chamakh and Olivier Giroud. If you sell a player like Robin Van Persie you have to replace them with someone like Falcao. You can't keep allowing the quality of the squad to drop with every successive transfer. When they sold Cesc Fabregas you could see that they had Jack Wilshere coming through. When Samir Nasri went to Manchester City it was because he wanted to leave the club and he only had a year left on his contract. You can't argue with either of those decisions. However, the key comes in bringing in replacements of a sufficient quality, and that is what Arsenal have failed to do in recent seasons. They have a l ...
IN & OUTS EPL 2013 January Tranfer window & verdict :- Arsenal- INS: Daniel Boateng (Oxford United, undisclosed), Nacho Monreal (Malaga, undisclosed) OUTS: Marouane Chamakh (West Ham, loan), Johan Djourou (Hannover, loan), Emmanuel Frimpong (Fulham, loan) The Lowdown: Given Arsene Wenger's renowned reluctance to sign players in January, Arsenal fans should be delighted that they managed to snap up the steady Monreal as a replacement for the injured Kieran Gibbs, rather than let Andre Santos try to hold the fort at left-back. However, the Gunners still look lightweight in the middle with Abou Diaby still not impressing as a midfield enforcer so far and it remains to be seen if they have enough quality to push for a Champions League spot at the end of the season. Verdict: Wenger has fixed a problem with an excellent signing, but is still a few players away from making Arsenal a truly world-class team. Aston Villa- INS: Yacouba Sylla (Clermont, undisclosed), Simon Dawkins (Tottenham, loan) OUTS: Alan Hutton ...
January Window Transfer As It Happened.. McNulty's January transfer window 1 February 2013 Updated 00:45 It was a tumultuous window of transfer wheeler-dealing, with car windows wound down, pens applied to dotted lines and the tectonic plates of the Premier League shifting once again. Here, BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty analyses the winners and losers as the top-flight's clubs brace themselves for the season run-in: (external) Arsenal Key moves in: Nacho Monreal [around £8.3m from Malaga] Key moves out: Johan Djourou [loan to Hannover 96], Marouane Chamakh [loan to West Ham], Chuks Aneke [loan to Crewe], Emmanuel Frimpong [loan to Fulham] Loan Phil McNulty's analysis: "Arsene Wenger is notoriously cautious about buying in January and, despite links with powerful midfielders such as West Ham's Mohamed Diame and a world-class striker in Barcelona's David Villa, he only chose to strengthen with the deadline day addition of Malaga left-back Nacho Monreal. The move appeared to be forced by ...
Welcome Beck: David Beckham has taken training with Arsenal players for the first time Beckham reported for duty at the club's state-of-the-art Hertfordshire training HQ on Tuesday, and was seen sharing a joke with Jack Wilshere, Lukas Podolski and the rest of the squad. He was wearing the training kit of flop striker Marouane Chamakh, who is currently on loan at West Ham. The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder is determined to prove he can still play at the highest level. Beckham trained with Arsenal in 2008 and with their North London rivals Tottenham two years ago, during the MLS off-season. He is currently a free agent and in no rush to make his next move as he can sign outside of this transfer window. Speaking ahead of Arsenal's meeting with Liverpool on Wednesday, Arsene Wenger said: 'He called me. He has asked to come here and to work on his fitness. He has not done anything for a long, long time.(It's) purely for fitness. There's no speculation about signing or anything.' With Wen ...

Wenger in no rush to sell Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out further departures from the Emirates, but insists players will have to come in before they do. Both Johan Djourou and Marouane Chamakh have left on loan, to Hannover and West Ham respectively, while Sebastien Squillaci and Andrey Arshavin have both been linked with moves away from North London. "At the moment no, (no one is leaving)," Wenger told Arsenal Player. "We have a good squad, a balanced one. At the moment nobody can go out, unless we buy somebody. "At the moment our focus is to keep everybody. In every position we have two players. Three is too many and one is not enough." Arsenal, remain hopeful of pushing through an improved contract offer for Theo Walcott, with reports suggesting a new five-year deal worth around £90,000 a week could even be signed ahead of the City game. Wenger has been linked with a string of players including Barcelona forward David Villa, His former Barca team-mate Yaya Toure will be missing for Manchester Ci ...
Villa will NOT be joining Arsenal in January, says Barca president Rosell Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has warned Arsenal to forget about signing striker David Villa during the January transfer window. The Gunners are expected to strengthen their squad this month, having already offloaded Moroccan misfit Marouane Chamakh on a six-month loan deal to West Ham. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger is said to be keen on Villa, who was a substitute for Barcelona’s 4-0 win over Espanyol at the weekend. Rosell, however, maintains the 31-year-old, signed in a £31million deal from Valencia in 2010, is going nowhere. Speaking to Catalan radio station RAC1, Rosell said: 'I completely rule out the transfer of Villa during the winter market. 'He is ours and we need him, there is a lot of the season left.' Arsenal are also reported to be in for Atletico Madrid frontman Adrian Lopez, while Wenger is claimed to be looking at further midfield options, with Anderlecht’s Argentina international Lucas Biglia said to be on ...
As the Transfer window has recently opened, Arsene Wenger has been given £70 million to spend on rebuilding the current Arsenal squad. Players like Johan Djourou, Sebastein Squillaci and Marouane Chamakh are now moving on, leaving spaces for new professionals to enter the club. In the last few years, the Gunners have been letting key players go; Samir Nasri, Geal Clichy, Casc Fabregas and Robin Van Persie being the latest of the stars to go out the door. Although Wenger has brought in players to replace them, they haven't been of the same standard, players like Gervinho, Arshavin and Chamakh haven't adapted to the Premier League meaning Arsenal have gone eight years without a trophy! Which is an extremely long time for a top class club! As the fans become more and more frustrated with the running of the club, Wenger becomes more worried about the signings. He needs to bring in top players that have already made a name for themselves and can preform highly at Europe and in England, for example Santi Cazor ...
Arsene Wenger is ready to use cash generated by Arsenal's winter clear-out to fund a January push to sign Barcelona striker David Villa. The Spain international, 31, is believed to fancy a move to the Premier League, with Barca likely to accept offers of around £15million. Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool have all enquired about Villa, but Spanish giants Barca have rebuffed any approaches relating to a loan move and say they are only interested in a permanent transfer. Barcelona insist they have not had a concrete offer from Arsenal but are aware of their interest. Sources in Spain believe a bid may be coming, and they are willing to do business. Arsenal will have the cash thanks to their clear-out, with Marouane Chamakh being loaned out and Andrey Arshavin, Johan Djourou and Sebastien Squillaci all set to go in the next few weeks, freeing up cash for transfers and to use on wages. The Gunners' hierarchy have made outgoings their priority. Chamakh has joined West Ham on loan, Arshavin has had negotiation ...

Aresenal japan hunt. Having seen the well of talent dry up in France, Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has identified Japan as an emerging market to find new players for his Premier League side. The Frenchman has built a strong reputation for plucking the likes of Nicolas Anelka, Robert Pires and Emmanuel Petit from clubs in his homeland and turning them into world class players. But Wenger, now in his 17th season with the 13 times English champions, has struggled to replicate the successful transfer dealings in recent seasons with Arsenal's last trophy being the 2005 FA Cup. Moroccan international Marouane Chamakh is set to move to West Ham United after becoming the latest to fail at Arsenal after joining from Girondins Bordeaux in 2010, with French defender Sebastien Squillaci also expected to leave this month. "The competition is high on the scouting front. The country where we were really, really competitive was France. They produce less players than they did 10, 15 years ago at top, top, top level in Fr ...
Arsenal flop Marouane Chamakh has opened talks with West Ham over a loan move to Upton Park. The Morocco striker is one of the highest earners in the Gunners squad, on £80,000 a week, and boss Arsene Wenger is keen to get him off the wage bill. The Emirates club are ready to pay a portion of his salary to force the Hammers move through. West Ham will have the option to make the deal permanent in the summer. Wenger has launched a major January clear-out at Arsenal, with Sebastien Squillaci and Johan Djourou both set to join Chamakh and Andrey Arshavin in passing through the exit door. French flop Squillaci, 32, has been told he can have a free transfer if he finds another club, while Hannover want Swiss defender Djourou on loan with a view to a permanent summer switch. Squillaci has made only one first-team appearance this season, in the Champions League dead rubber against Olympiacos, while Djourou has played more games for Switzerland than for the Gunners in the current campaign.
Arsene Wenger feels signing Theo Walcott on a new contract would send a "positive message" that the future is bright at Arsenal.

HG Inter Milan are prepared to offer Nuri Sahin a lifeline as Liverpool appear certain to offload the midfielder in January. A report in the Daily Mail claims the Reds are looking to cancel Sahin's loan period from Real Madrid early, and Brendan Rodgers may therefore be able to use interest from Inter to his advantage. Rodgers, meanwhile, is said to be keen on Palermo midfielder Josip Ilicic as an immediate replacement. Arsenal are weighing up a move for Atletico Madrid front-man Adrian Lopez, according to the Daily Mirror. The Spain international is reportedly available during the current transfer window, however Arsene Wenger is understood to be balking at his £14 million buy-out clause. Adrian is seeking pastures new in order to gain more playing time as he sits behind the in-form Radamel Falcao in Atletico's pecking order. The deal may hinge on whether the Gunners can offload Marouane Chamakh by the end of the month. Peter Odemwingie is viewed by Newcastle as the ideal replacement for Demba Ba, shoul ...
Arsenal Join AC Milan in Race to Sign Matri Alessandro Matri’s future seems to be far from Juventus as AC Milan have been joined by Arsenal in their pursuit for the striker. The 28-year-old recently scored a brace against Cagliari to help the Bianconeri extend their lead atop the Serie A standings, but his diminished playing time could see him leave the club in January. AC Milan are in need of a striker as Brazilian duo Robinho and Pato look set for moves back to Brazil. They have been joined by Arsene Wenger as Arsenal look to change their attacking options with Marouane Chamakh and Andrei Arshavin set for the exit doors. Matri’s contract with Juve expires in 2017 but it is hard to imagine that the Lombardy native will stay at the club until that date.

Arsenal set for hectic 'January.A Striker And Box Mid are Surely coming... As Andrey Arshavin is set for a move to Reading, and Marouane Chamakh a move to West Ham, Arsenal are looking to sign AT LEAST three players in January, as well as Thierry Henry, to strengthen a squad lacking in depth and strength itself. Their main priority is a striker. David Villa, Adrian Lopez and Demba Ba are the reported three who Arsene Wenger is looking at... On paper David is obviously the most attractive player out of the three, but his wages could cause many problems and spending £15m for a 31-year-old just isn't something Arsene would usually do... Adrian could well be an Arsenal player come next month as Arsenal are said to be scouring the Spanish market this winter and Adrian is looking for a move away from current club, Atletico Madrid, as he's fed up of sitting on the bench week after week, but he has been off form this season and its a risk considering he has no PL exp...

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is determined to clear the decks during the January market. The Mirror says the club will also listen to offers for Andrey Arshavin, Andre Santos and Marouane Chamakh next month. Santos is wanted in Turkey, where he played for Fenerbahce before moving to Arsenal in summer 2011, while Zenit St Petersburg want old-boy Arshavin back. Arsenal may subsidise Chamakh's £60,000-a-week wages if it helps them offload him to Italians Fiorentina.
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger stood by his players after their defeat on penalties by Bradford City in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals and insisted he was not embarrassed. The home side took the lead when Garry Thompson volleyed in but Thomas Vermaelen headed in two minutes from time to send the match into extra-time and penalties. Bradford twice failed from the spot but Santi Cazorla, Marouane Chamakh and Vermaelen were equally culpable to hand the League Two side a 3-2 success on penalties and a place in the semi-finals for the first time in their history. "Congratulations to Bradford, they had a good start and after that they defended well," Wenger said. "Overall we had many chances. The keeper had a great game and we couldn't convert our chances. "When you go out it's never good enough at Arsenal. I think we lost on penalties to a team who defended well. "I cannot fault the effort we gave for 120 minutes. You have to give credit to Bradford on the night. That's part of the game. "You feel embarrass ...
the 3 things arsenal must change by Joe SG Let me start off by saying, I’m a huge Arsene Wenger fan. In fact, he’s is one of the main reasons why I support Arsenal. I think it’s fair to say that everybody likes the way the North London club play – even the neutrals. But the problem with Wenger is that he doesn’t listen to reason. Yes, we can’t compete with the Chelsea’s and Manchester City’s of this world. But he’s also lost the ability to sign great players. I mean, why sign Park Chu-Young or Marouane Chamakh, when you can sign great underdogs like Bobby Zamora, Clint Dempsey and so on. Along with this there are other issues with the club which is preventing them from taking that one step further and breaking their trophyless run. I believe there are three things missing, big things at that. 1. Lack of physical presence in the midfield Look at how Arsenal benefited from Patrick Vieira’s physique in the past, or how City have benefited from Yaya Toure. He is a midfield enforcer who dri ...
Arsenal frontman Lukas Podolski has said he wants to be playing in a more central role for the North London club after having mainly operated as a wide-man this season. The German striker, who has been mostly employed by Arsene Wenger wide on the left in a 3 man strike force in the early goings of this season, believes he is more suited to a role in the centre of the attacking three, rather than providing support for his team mates in the middle. The Polish born forward has demanded more from himself since his summer move from Cologne, and has only scored 2 goals in 10 appearances for the Gunners this season. But Podolski could argue he is playing out of position, adapting his game to play more as a winger rather than an out and out striker. Centre forward The German international has scored 44 goals in 105 games for his country, but believes he can’t find his usual scoring proficiency at Arsenal due to his position up front. “I’d rather play centrally up front”. Podolski told Sky Sports. “On th ...
Gunners misfit striker was glad to see Robin Van Persie go – but it turns out Arsene Wenger still couldn't find a place for him

Injury News: Gervinho out for three weeks. Gervinho has been ruled out for three weeks with an ankle injury, Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The injury, picked up during last weekend’s 1-0 win over Queens Park Rangers just 11 minutes after coming on as a substitute – means that Gervinhois expected to miss as many as five games for the Gunners, including several key fixtures. Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Saturday before visiting German side Schalke in the Champions League next Tuesday. Two consecutive London derbies at Emirates Stadium, against Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur, then follow before a potentially decisive European fixture against French champions Montpellier. With Gervinho out, Olivier Giroud is expected to spearhead the attack at Old Trafford on Saturday, but after their impressive performances against Reading on Tuesday, Marouane Chamakh and Theo Walcott could be used as target men during Gervinho’s absence. Meanwhile, Wenger has confirmed that Kieran G ...
Reading 5-7 Arsenal: Wenger proud after historic comeback Arsene Wenger says Arsenal's recovery in their incredible 7-5 victory over Reading in the Capital One Cup took them from"disaster to pride" . Arsenal were 4-0 down but took the game to extra-time, with a Theo Walcott hat-trick and two Marouane Chamakh goals helping them into the last eight. "We went from disaster to rescuing some pride," Wenger said. "You cannot play for Arsenal and give up." Reading boss Brian McDermott said the defeat was the "worst" of his career. Into the history books *. Reading are the first ever team in the either the League Cup or FA Cup to score five goals and lose the game *. It is not the first time Reading have been beaten 7-5. The Royals, despite four goals from Kerry Dixon, lost by the same scoreline at Third Division opponents Doncaster Rovers in September 1982 *. Reading versus Arsenal was the first League Cup game to be 4-4 at 90 minutes since Port Vale verses Chester in August 1999 *. Reading have faced Arsenal on ...
Capital One Cup - Reading v Arsenal, Marouane Chamakh Theo Walcott 's heroics inspired an incredible comeback as Arsenal recovered from four goals down to beat Reading and book their place in the Capital One Cup quarter-finals after a truly astonishing battle. First-half strikes from Jason Roberts, Mikele Leigertwood, Noel Hunt and an own goal from Laurent Koscielny had earlier given the rampant Royals a lead which looked unassailable but a double from Walcott - along with efforts from Olivier Giroud and Koscielny in the right end – forcedthe match to extra time. Marouane Chamakh edged the Gunners in front but substitute Pavel Pogrebnyak's header lookedto have sent the game hurtling towards penalties before Walcott and Chamakh struck again to seal the win. The astounding result gives Arsene Wenger a timely and unlikely boost after the club's stormy Annual General Meeting, while his opposite number Brian McDermott now faces a stiff challenge to pick his dejected players up in time for Sunday's relegation ...
Arsenal prepare for January clearout, Walcott,Arshavin & Chamakh on the chopping block. Arsenal’s long-awaited clearout could finally be around the corner as Arsene Wenger prepares to empty his squad of dead weight during the Januarytransfer window. The Daily Mail reports that the heated Annual General Meeting this week has forced the Gunners to hasten the clearout process, with Andrei Arshavin, Johan Djourou, Marouane Chamakh, Sebastian Squillaci and Theo Walcott all on the chopping block.
Bordeaux plot January move to relieve Arsenal of Chamakh: The Moroccan striker has found himself surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium but his former club are ready to offer an escape route in the upcoming transfer window. The Bordeaux president, Jean-Louis Triaud, has declared publicly his desire to re-sign Marouane Chamakh. The 28-year-old Arsenal striker enjoyed a fruitful eight-year spell at the French club between 2002 and 2010, notching up 56 goals in 230 appearances, but has found first-team opportunities limited under Arsene Wenger. [F.Y.A]
Arsenal boss Wenger plans January clear out Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is planning to oversee a January market clearout. The Daily Mail says the likes of Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela, Manuel Almunia, Denilson and Park Chu-young all left on a temporary or permanent basis during the summer. But Arsenal are still keen to offload Marouane Chamakh, Sebastien Squillaci, Johan Djourou and Andrey Arshavin. My take These players have overstayed their welcome at the emirates.
Arsenal are reportedly ready to make a January bid for Schalke forward Klaas-Jan Huntelaar as Arsene Wenger looks to make the most of the fact that the Dutch international is in the final year of his contract and will be available for a reduced fee. The 29 year old striker has been in great form over the past 18 months but seems ready to move on having seen his strike partner Raul leave the Gelsenkirchen side for Saudi Arabian side Al Sadd in the summer. The Gunners boss is keen to boost his club’s firepower having all but given up on back-up forward Marouane Chamakh and seemingly likely to look for permanent departures for loaned out forwards Nicklas Bendtner and Park Chu-Young who are currently on season long loan spells at Juventus and Celta Vigo respectively. Indeed the only two recognised senior forwards that Wenger has any intention of using are new additions Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski and as such is looking for further strength in depth up front. Huntelaar netted an astonishing 48 goals in ...

Park Ju-young? -This Got To be joke The finest, U are kidding Me- says Maureen- =But there is a painfully obvious theme when examining the list of adored skippers since Tony Adams bowed out: =CHECK THIS OUT- Patrick Vieira, Thierry Henry, Cesc Fábregas and now Robin Van Persie. = Gilberto Silva and William Gallas may have moved along with considerably less drama but it is striking how often Arsene Wenger hands over the armband to a particularly valuable player, only to have to pat him on the back as he exits shortly afterwards.

Before the summer began, Arsenal were in a slightly uncomfortable situation regarding their strikers. With Robin Van Persie's future still undecided, there was a worrying prospect that the Gunners would be relying more on out-of-favour Marouane Chamakh and Park Chu-young going into the new campaign. But even with austerity in vogue, not even one of the most prudent managers in the game in Arsene Wenger could stomach that prospect. Gunner get ya! Arsenal's ranks will be boosted by Podolski and Giroud next term The Arsenal manager has this year avoided the last day madness of the transfer window to impressively get his main deals done before July and give the North London side not just promise but viable options in attack next season. It has come at the cost of £23.8million but the signings of Lukas Podolski from Cologne and Olivier Giroud from Montpellier has addressed the lack of strikers and could now give them a shot at the title. Much is already known about Podolski. The 27-year-old was part of the Ge ...

THE TOP TRANSFER TARGETS ARSENAL SHOULD PURSUE THIS SUMMER This summer, a clear out of the Arsenal squad has been called for, in an attempt to reduce the wage bill and bring in a talented and more competitive squad. With so many players potentially on their way out, Arsene Wenger could be looking at having to delve as deep into the transfer market as he ever has in his 16 years at the club. The potential clear out comes in areas all over the team, from Vito Mannone in goal joining Hull City on a permanent basis to Marouane Chamakh going back to Ligue 1. While Euro 2012 goes on, there is very little action in the transfer market taking place, leaving Ivan Gazidis and Arsene Wenger plenty of time to deliberate over potential signings. Arsenal have already brought in Lukas Podiski and there is the likelihood of Oliver Giroud becoming the second major signing. Arsenal has of course released a number of players, a few senior and mostly the youth and has sold one youth player and bought in one more in the midfi ...
ARSENE Wenger is said to have agreed a fee of almost £13million to take Olivier Giroud to Arsenal from Montpellier, reports tonight suggest. There is a vast amount of conjecture swirling around that Giroud joining the Gunners could be part of a deal that sees Marouane Chamakh head the other way either on loan or [... Read more:

Many Arsenal fans would love to have the opportunity to sit down with Manager Arsene Wenger or chief executive Ivan Gazidis following the season The Gunners have just had. Why did the Samir Nasri saga go on for so long? What was to blame for such a horrendous start to the season? Is Robin Van Persie likely to sign a new deal? Well on Wednesday night, members of the Arsenal supporters trust were given the opportunity to put forward such questions, as they met with club figure head Gazidis. At the meeting, the 47 year old announced the board’s plans to re-structure the wage system that is currently in place at the Emirates. In an attempt to save up to £23million on the wage bill, Gazidis put forward their ‘more economical’ way of spending money. The hope is that boss Arsene Wenger will have more money to spend in the transfer market, attracting big names to North London. This kind of wage reformation, which is likely to see fringe players at Arsenal shown the door, is expected by the Gunners chief ex ...

Worst Player Of The Season 'Don't worry folks, we've signed Park Chu-Young,' was Arsene Wenger's message to Arsenal fans last summer after the club sold both Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. It looked as though Wenger didn't have the foggiest when, in desperation, he signed five players on deadline day. And while Mikel Arteta turned out to be an inspired piece of business (why did it take so many years for Arsenal to sign him?) Chu-Young has earned his place next to Kaba Diawara in the Gunners' Hall of Shame. One Premier League sub appearance, four passes (three successful) and no shots tells its own story, with the South Korean way below the standard required; even Marouane Chamakh 'outshone' him in a late cameo against AC Milan at the Emirates. Arsenal fans will be thankful that Robin Van Persie stayed fit throughout the campaign, as not only did the striker fire them into Europe, he also saved them from significant embarrassment.
