Wright wants Costa

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has suggested that Arsenal sign Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

He said that Alexis Sanchez might be leaving the club during the summer and that Diego Costa might be an ideal replacement for him.

This can be a controversial signing when we know the rivalry that exists between the two London club, but this will not be the first time that there are transfers between both clubs. Gallas and Cech are all players that have moved from Chelsea to Arsenal and Costa might be an interesting signing for the Gunners.

Alexis Sanchez has hinted that he might be leaving the club during the summer and it appears that Bayern Munich is the most interested club at the moment.

Ian Wright said that Alexis Sanchez is an important member of the team and that he needs to be replaced if ever he decides to leave the club during the transfer window. He believes that Diego Costa would be a great replacement and that Wenger should make a move for the player. Continue reading Wright wants Costa


Arsenal FC are set to double the weekly wages of Spaniard Alvaro Morata if he agrees to join the Emirates this forthcoming season, according to reports making the rounds.

The extra effort is seen as part of desperate efforts by the London club to nab the player after missing out on other possible additions.

Real Madrid activated their buy-back clause to get Morata from Juventus in order to now sell to the highest bidder. Chelsea FC, Arsenal’s rival, are among the favourites to land the player this summer from the Bernabeu forcing Arsenal to offer the player extra incentive so he joins this summer. The 23-year old player scored 12 goals in the last season for Juventus after making 47 appearances for the Turin-based club. AS reports that the striker is not keen on staying at Madrid except he would get serious game time which might not be very realistic, so he is keen on going where he would get enough time like he enjoyed back in the Serie A.

Arsenal are now offering £144,000 weekly to land the player this summer. Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is also keen on the player, who displayed what he was capable off when both teams met at the Euro 2016 in France. Italy were the victors as they defeated their counterparts 2-0 but Morata enjoyed a decent performance at the tournament.

Arsenal are in serious need of a prolific and consistent striker after the performance of their first choice forward Olivier Giroud left much to be desired in the last campaign. With more pressure on Arsene Wenger to win the English Premier League he last lifted in 2004, the club is out for a good goals’ poacher to do the job well in the coming season. The club is obviously willing to go extra length for Morata.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger still believes that his team can come up with a surprising result

Despite having been beaten 3-1 in the first leg against Monaco, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger still believes that his team can come up with a surprising result in the second leg. There have been very few teams who have managed to progress to the next round after losing the first leg 3-1.

Further, Arsenal have the disadvantage of playing away from home. Monaco have been one of the stingiest teams in the French league after allowing only 20 goals from the 28 matches this season. Since the first leg at the Emirates stadium, both teams have undergone different set of fortunes in terms of form.

Arsenal went on to win four straight matches including the 3-0 win over West Ham last weekend. Monaco followed that result with five dropped points in the league, but they have recovered of late with back-to-back victories against Evian and Bastia. The gunners have already been knocked out at this stage of the competition four times in a row. The worrying aspect for Wenger is that in all previous occasions, the opposition were significantly better than Monaco. Manchester City and Arsenal are the two left British teams in the Champions League after Chelsea suffered an exit.
