Arsenal 2014 Transfers Update: Ins, Outs and Future Signings

Share

Sanchez Arsenals Business in Transfer Window and Done Deals So Far Arsenal have started gaining momentum in the last few days as the Gunners have completed the signing of Alexis Sanchez and Mathieu Debuchy.

The Gunners saw their star defender Bacary Sagna leave the club on a free transfer after the Frenchman rejected a chance to sign a new deal to extend his stay at the Emirates. Instead, the right-back agreed terms to join Manchester City on a free transfer.

Arsene Wenger had to find a replacement and Arsenal manager replaced Sagna with his compatriot, Debuchy. The 28-year-old arrived from Newcastle United and has a wealth of experience under his belt and has already tested in the Premier League.

Debuchy kept Sagna out of France starting lineup in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, where they were knocked out in the quarter finals by eventual winners Germany. With his form, the French right-back would be a great addition to the Gunners’ squad.

The defender was Arsenal’s second arrival of the summer as he followed Sanchez. Wenger had to bring in attacking player to reduce the burden of scoring goals from Olivier Giroud’s shoulders.

Sanchez is likely to cut in from the left, while Theo Walcott would do the same from the right side. Giroud will be the focal point of Arsenal’s attack next season, while Mesut Ozil is likely to have several options to assist in the trio to score on regular basis for the Gunners.

  1. Remy, Sami, Lars bender and wrap up the colombian goolie then our business is done. Challenge for title next year and let the rivals particularly Manshitty n ManPussy knows that we can even do better without them and their dirty oil monies…

  2. We need a striker, a defensive middleflder and a defender that will replace Thomas Vermalean.

  3. Well done so far. Still needed:
    1) Sami Khedira — don’t let Chelsea snap him up. (If they do lose him, they still need a strong, tough holding midfielder.)
    2) A true center forward to spell Giroud or sub if he’s injured
    3) A strong central defender, especially if Vermaelen goes.

  4. Mario Balloteli
    Lars Bender &
    Backup Goalkeeper. I think with all this players AFC are ready for a new season, come August. Cheers

  5. Balotelli or Jackson Martinez
    Lars Bender or Schneiderlin
    Ospina
    And a good centre back
    With these signings we can win the Premier league

  6. We need an out and out striker like Baloteli or the Colombian world cup striker.We should not live a stone unturned to secure Sami Khedhira because of his experience and tough fighting spirit in midfield. A quick mobile centre back is a must to help Per as I worry when balls are played behind him.
