Ozil arrives in eye-popping Arsenal deal

Arsenal proved to be the big winners on transfer deadline day by pulling off the biggest deal by signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid.

The Gunners sealed a £40 million deal for the Germany international late on Monday to smash their transfer record and thrill Gunners' fans who had called on manager Arsene Wenger to spend.

Ozil becomes the third most expensive signing in British football history as well as Arsenal’s highest earner in a simply eye-popping deal.

Wenger rolls out the red carpet for Van Persie's grand return

All eyes will be on the Emirates Stadium on Sunday as Robin van Persie steps out at his former stomping ground for the first time since his headline-grabbing move to Manchester United last summer.

The Netherlands international arrives back in north London a champion, with the Red Devils having already wrapped up the title with victory over Aston Villa last week, and a guard of honour from those he called his team-mates a matter of months ago awaits his return.

Despite Arsene Wenger's calls for respect for Sir Alex Ferguson's side and their top-goalscoring striker, Gunners supporters are set to give their former hero a rocky reception after his decision to quit the club for one of their chief Premier League rivals.

Wenger's walking wounded a right pain in the Arse

It was a case of same old, same old for Arsenal fans on Friday, with the club revealing that not only has Jack Wilshere suffered another injury setback, but Abou Diaby will be out of action for nine months with cruciate ligament damage.

Arsene Wenger is already without Theo Walcott, who sustained a pelvic injury while on international duty with England, meaning the Frenchman must prepare for the prospect of facing a crucial Premier League run-in without key first-team stars.

The Gunners continue to trail fourth-placed Tottenham by four points, and their side is starting to resemble the walking wounded instead of the slick set-up needed to earn Champions League qualification...

Wenger vexed by Arsenal injury crisis

Arsene Wenger this week revealed his plans for Arsenal's north London derby clash with Tottenham on Saturday have been plunged into chaos by a squad plagued with injuries.

The Frenchman has concerns over the fitness of Theo Walcott, Mikel Arteta, Olivier Giroud, Wojciech Szczesny, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Bacary Sagna after the midweek internationals.

On Friday, he told reporters: "There are so many - I think we need a few doctors this morning. We have so many players who have come back with injuries or small injuries.

"We will see this morning, but it is difficult to give you a clear idea of who will be available tomorrow or not."

So at the end of what undoubtedly must have been a frantic 24 hours for the Gunners boss, which of his stars will make it onto the pitch to take on Spurs?
