Danny Welbeck's transfer from Manchester United to Arsenal this summer proved to be a controversial topic at Old Trafford. On the pitch, Welbeck is an unusual player who divides opinion, but his departure seemed more significant in a symbolic sense.

Gary Neville, for example, admitted he was "struggling to understand the logic behind the deal in two or three ways," but many United supporters countered that Welbeck was merely a fourth-choice striker. Behind double Golden Boot-winner Robin van Persie,...

Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil tried to persuade Sami Khedira to join Arsenal

The ESPN FC panel respond to Louis van Gaal's comments that a German should win this year's Ballon d'Or.

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker has confirmed both he and Mesut Ozil spoke to Sami Khedira this summer about the possibility of the Real Madrid midfielder joining the Gunners.

Khedira, 27, was linked with a move to Arsene Wenger's side after winning the 2014 World Cup with Germany in Brazil alongside Mertesacker and Ozil, though a deal failed to materialise.

Reports in Spain suggest the midfielder has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Bayern Munich, but Mertesacker is always open to more...

Jack Wilshere: Arsene Wenger doesn't want me in holding role for Arsenal

ESPN FC's Santi Solari and Paul Mariner discuss the similarities between Alexis Sanchez and Luis Suarez and question if Sanchez can attain the same level of success Suarez achieved in the Premier League.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says that he revelling his new midfield holding role for England, but that club manager Arsene Wenger does not want to see that replicated for the Gunners.

Those two matches have revitalised the 22-year-old's international career, and came as a personal boost after starting Arsenal's...
