How Cech will help Szczesny


City, Liverpool begin Sterling transfer saga

50-50 Challenge

Arsenal owe Rosicky his freedom


Petr Cech arrival might force out David Ospina, not Wojciech Szczesny

Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner hopes Arsene Wenger has a few more signings under his sleeve for this season.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Petr Cech could make Arsenal serious contenders to take down Chelsea as Premier League champions.

Arsenal have pulled off one of the transfer coups of the summer in signing Petr Cech.

According to stats service Opta, no regular goalkeeper in the Premier League era has a better win ratio than Petr Cech. However, the emergence of Thibaut Courtois has made him surplus to requirements at Chelsea, and the Gunners are the grateful beneficiaries.

Arsenal now have four senior goalkeepers on the books. That's not a tenable situation: While Emiliano Martinez might be prepared to bide his time, Wojciech...

Alexis Sanchez loves to lip sync

Not for the first time in the past week or so, Alexis Sanchez has been spending some his richly deserved time off this summer by indulging in his favourite musical pastime: strangely lit lip-synching.

Having first treated us to a bit of Latin hip-hop, this time the Arsenal star was in an altogether more serene mood, delivering a stirring power ballad for the ages ...

Lukas Podolski's days at Arsenal are done after Inter loan disaster

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses Lukas Podolski's future with Arsenal after Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini confirmed the forward's loan spell would be over at the end of the season.
The ESPN FC crew debate whether or not Lukas Podolski and Carl Jenkinson are set to leave Arsenal this summer, where Craig Burley does not feel Podolski will remain at the Emirates.

It is sometimes hard to cut through the bluster of the transfer window. Who really wants to leave? Who's only using interest from another club as leverage for a better deal? Is Player X really "over the moon" to be joining his new team when he looks as if he's being held hostage in his presentation news conference?

What people say during the summer isn't always an accurate reflection of the reality of the situation, which brings us to Lukas Podolski's return to Arsenal from an unimpressive loan...

Would Jack Wilshere succeed at Man City, or should he stay at Arsenal?

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Steve Nicol assess Man City's potential transfer targets and predict which ones will end up at the Etihad.
Jack Wilshere has not made the strides he should have at Arsenal.

On the face of it, Jack Wilshere has no desire to leave Arsenal this summer. "I want to be wanted by Arsenal. I've grown up at Arsenal, I'm a home-grown player, and as long as Arsenal want me, then I'm happy," he told a news conference while on England duty earlier this month.

His statement seemed categorical but also stayed a little open-ended. For the first time in Wilshere's career, the possibility of leaving the Emirates is being freely floated. Manchester City's interest in him is obvious,...

Is Petr Cech really what Arsenal need in order to win the Premier League?

Former Arsenal striker Paul Mariner hopes Arsene Wenger has a few more signings under his sleeve for this season.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Petr Cech could make Arsenal serious contenders to take down Chelsea as Premier League champions.
ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson weigh in on Petr Cech's imminent move to Arsenal and discuss why goalkeepers aren't all that expensive.
Cech would be a fine addition at Real Madrid but a move doesn't make sense... does it?
Petr Cech will undoubtedly improve Arsenal, but they need better forwards if they're to win the league.

It's happening already. In the red zone of North London, they're starting to believe. It has been 10 years since Arsenal last won the title, but none of the usual excuses apply anymore. There are no complaints about a lack of spending now.

According to Transfermarkt, Arsene Wenger has splashed out £150 million over the past four transfer windows. There are no fears over the retention of players, either. Manchester City continue to circle Jack Wilshere, but the club are confident that he'll...

Wenger, Van Gaal and Mourinho approach season with big expectations

As the fixture list for the new Premier League season is released, fans will be counting the days until August 8th.
Arsene Wenger and Louis Van Gaal probably don't expect to win the league, while Jose Mourinho looks to build a dynasty.

This spring I spent a morning in Paris with Arsene Wenger and got a glimpse of his life. Wenger was staying in a five-star hotel, so over breakfast he inevitably ran into Fabien Barthez, the former France goalkeeper, who just happened to be passing. Soccer people hang out in five-star hotels, and because Wenger has been in the game longer than almost anyone else, he knows everyone.

Wenger greeted Barthez like a long-lost friend. In the glare of TV cameras Wenger usually looks tense, upright and...
