Sure, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette in every transfer window for the last two or three years, but this could finally be their time to sign the Lyon star. According to various reports across Europe, the Gunners have contacted the French side to discuss a potential deal for the 25-year-old and it would be a major scalp for Arsene Wenger and the board if they can snag one of the continent’s hottest forwards next month.
The Arsenal of old have reared their heads in their recent Premier League form to send fans into a spiral of depression before Christmas. The Gunners were well positioned in the title race, but back-to-back defeats at the hands of Everton and Manchester City have left them well off the pace of current leaders Chelsea, leaving supporters with feelings of déjà vu.
The Champions League is back tonight and we have PSG first up. To be perfectly honest I am feeling rather confident. PSG in previous years have, already this short way into the season, established themselves with a lead at the top of the table. This season however they have struggled to get going. Is it simply down to the loss of Zlatan? No, but I think it is more than they realise.
Arsenal enter the new Premier League season in the midst of an injury crisis ahead of their opener against Liverpool.
It’s a common theme with Arsene Wenger’s teams: health issues always seem to strike, whether it's at the start of the campaign or in the heat of battle for the top-flight crown.
With Leicester winning the league last year, it showed that maybe money isn’t anything, but that hasn’t stopped teams like United spending big. They have already secured the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and now they are looking to spend close to £100 on Pogba. That is silly money! But saying that! I wouldn't say no if we spent that plus I could really use a good signing for my Fantasy Team.
Guardiola, Klopp, Wenger, Conte, Mourinho, Pochettino, Ranieri, it is going to be a very interesting season indeed. Who could ever argue that this is not the best league in the world. As a betting man I will be checking all the online sportsbooks sites to see what odds I can get. Arsenal's odds will increase with the signing of that one pivotal player who could put us in the drivers seat. A striker? I think yes a striker would be the position I am most after.
One thing is for sure. This season is going to be one to remember, I only pray to the football gods above that it swings Arsenal's way.
Come on you Gunners!

We are fortunate to witness the era of amazing footballers like Ronaldo and Messi. Born with god given abilities and talent, both are absolutely amazing. Both have different identities where individualism and ego are traits of Ronaldo while togetherness and sportsmanship define Lionel Messi. Ronaldo makes solo runs on the wings and Messi brings team mates into play. With different qualities and traits, both players have been helping their teams to gain success with resolute passion and dogged determination. But the million dollar question is who is the best?
