Arsenal have been provided with a major boost in the race for their target, Atletico Madrid ace Mario Suarez. According to reports in the press, the player’s agent has revealed that he is still undecided on his future destination, whilst indicating that he may be open to the prospect of a move in the near future.
Agent Manuel Garcia Quilon was quoted telling Milan News: “I don’t know if he’s a prospect for Milan. He was followed in January by three or four Italian teams, including Milan, Inter and Napoli. He is a spectacular player and the Italians wanted him. At the moment I couldn’t say if there are any meetings planned with [Adriano] Galliani, but it’s true that in the past he was pursued by Milan. We’re talking about an extraordinary player, who can represent the season’s best signing for any team.”
Arsenal are understood to have been alerted in their pursuit of Newcastle United youngster Rolando Aarons, who is also a target for Liverpool and Manchester City. According to reports in the press, the Magpies have put off contract extension talks with the player until the summer, as they are yet to make up their mind over his long term future at the club, which in turn means that he may become available in the times to come.
The 19 year old first shot to prominence after scoring against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup earlier this season, with the game ending 2-0 in the favour of Newcastle.
Arsenal ace Olivier Giroud is still pretty much optimistic about laying his hands upon the Premier League trophy this season. However, the Frenchman admits that his side need to win all of their remaining games, and then wait for the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea to commit mistakes.
Giroud was quoted telling reporters: “First we need to win every single game and then after that we need to see if Manchester City or Chelsea miss one of these steps to the end.”
Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has said that he doesn’t want his former club to follow in the steps of Liverpool, and not win the Premier League in the next 25 years to come.
The Frenchman was quoted telling reporters: “If I had told you in 1990 that Liverpool would not win the title in the next 25 years, you would have taken me for a madman. I don’t want the same thing to happen to Arsenal.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has indicated that his side are not ready to give up on the Premier League title as yet, and that they will continue to challenge for it.
The Frenchman was quoted telling reporters ahead of his side’s Champions League round of 16 match against Monaco: “We are still too far from Chelsea, but will give everything to win our [league] games and come back as close as possible.”
Manchester City ace James Milner may not put pen to paper on a new contract at the Etihad Stadium, which has in turn put his suitors on high alert. The player is set to see his current contract expire in the summer, and may thus be available to the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool for free.
A versatile midfielder, the 29 year old is capable of playing in the centre of the park, as well as on either flank. He has been in good form this season, scoring 5 goals and providing 8 assists in 33 appearances for his side.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was in an ecstatic mood after his team destroyed Manchester City at their own home, winning their encounter 2-0. And the boss certainly didnâ€™t forget to laud the amazing Santi Cazorla for his performance.
About the Spaniard, Wenger was quoted telling reporters: “Santi Cazorla has been superb for a while now but today he was maybe even more influential. The way the whole team defended gave him a lot of the ball, and when you give him the ball you always have a chance to relieve pressure.” Continue reading
Arsenal avenged their last seasonâ€™s 6-3 rout at the Etihad Stadium by notching up a well-deserved 2-0 win over Manchester City, courtesy of some incredible team play by the visitors.
It was an afternoon when everything clicked for Arsene Wenger (and probably nothing did, for Manuel Pellegrini).The Gunners scored their first goal in the 24th minute with Santi Cazorla firing home from the penalty spot after Vincent Kompany brought down Nacho Monreal with a foul inside the D, just near the edge. The Spaniard then orchestrated the second goal for the north Londoners from a well-struck free-kick, with Olivier Giroud scoring from a header in the 67th minute.
