Arsenal: How can we give Aubameyang and Lacazette raises?

Arsenal’s financial situation is a bit of a mess. While it’s exciting, how exactly are they in a place to give out raises to Aubameyang and Lacazette? Arsenal‘s wage structure is a mess and a half, and a lot of that comes from Mesut Ozil, as well as not offloading players that they just aren’t […] Arsenal: How can we give Aubameyang and Lacazette raises? - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Arsenal: Ajax transfer parade presents a buffet of opportunity

Arsenal have been linked to about half the Ajax starting XI, and David Nere now counts himself a member of the parade. None of this is a bad idea. Arsenal have a lot of business to get done this summer, and they’re taking their sweet time getting started.

Arsenal: Matteo Guendouzi does Alexis Claude-Maurice disservice

Arsenal look to be climbing the ladder to land Alexis Claude-Maurice, but is it possible that Matteo Guendouzi has actually done him a minor disservice? Arsenal‘s transfer window thus far could not be any more underwhelming. Literally. Because they haven’t bought or sold a single person. But they’ve been linked to plenty, and while he’s […] Arsenal: Matteo Guendouzi does Alexis Claude-Maurice disservice - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Arsenal: Krystian Bielik no different than Guendouzi, Claude-Maurice

Arsenal are going for numerous young and potentially underwhelming signings this summer, so why not count Krystian Bielik among the mix? Arsenal are already showing a high degree of selectiveness as they peruse their transfer options this summer. Just recently, Yannick Carrasco has been ruled off because he is going to cost £30m instead of the £25m […] Arsenal: Krystian Bielik no different than Guendouzi, Claude-Maurice - Pain in the Arsenal - Pain in the Arsenal - An Arsenal Fan Site - FanSided

Arsenal Women: Vivianne Miedema one of the best

There’s a lot of debate and discussion surrounding women’s football, but Arsenal and Holland phenom Vivianne Miedema makes things simple. She really is one of the best. When the Champions League games come around, I make a concerted effort to watch. They provide you with an opportunity to watch some of the world’s best players.

Arsenal: How is the best available player also the cheapest?

Arsenal supposedly have an open lane to get to Hakim Ziyech, all they have to do is want him. So what exactly is there not to want? Hakim Ziyech is the perfect solution to everything Arsenal need help with in the attack. I have no doubts about that.

Arsenal: Ryan Fraser’s availability doesn’t make or break anything

Arsenal are apparently being told that Ryan Fraser is suddenly not for sale. Bummer. But this really isn’t that big of a deal. Life goes on. Who’s next?

Arsenal: Please stop acting like Ismael Bennacer doesn’t exist

Arsenal’s midfield is going to need some reinforcement, so why does the club seem to have forgotten that Ismael Bennacer even exists? In case you haven’t been able to tell by my recent posts, I am less than pleased with the way that Arsenal are handling this transfer window thus far.

Arsenal: 3 reasons why it’s fine to spend £18m on Alexis Claude-Maurice

Arsenal seem to be closing in on the services of Alexis Claude-Maurice, even if he is going to cost more than expected. But here are three reasons why £18m is a fine price. Arsenal‘s summer transfer window has been slow going so far.

Arsenal and Alexis Claude-Maurice: This is how to ‘outsmart the market’

Alexis Claude-Maurice is being heavily linked with an £18 million to Arsenal. If there is a way to ‘outsmart the market’, as Raul Sanllehi put it, this is it. The modern transfer market is crazy. The fees that clubs can now afford — and thereby demand when selling — are astronomical.

Arsenal and Lucas Torreira: AC Milan can ramp it up to whatever

AC Milan are reportedly ready to ‘ramp up’ their pursuit of Lucas Torreira. They can do that all they want, Arsenal would still be stupid to sell, almost irrespective of the price.

Arsenal: Mesut Ozil alone does not solve financial problems

Arsenal are reportedly upping their efforts to sell Mesut Ozil. But ridding of the German midfielder does not solve the financial problems. Arsenal are in a financial mess. They were already in trouble before they signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, their records cushioned by the sales of Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Arsenal have repeatedly signed players that are too old. And now they are being linked to 30-year-old Ivan Perisic. Please, learn your lesson. Sokratis. Stephan Lichtsteiner. Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Arsenal’s transfer window has stagnated before it even began. Meanwhile, West Ham are having no problem signing guys like Pablo Fornals. This is a big transfer window for Arsenal.
