Mikel Arteta: It's 'about time' Arsenal competed in transfer market

16 July 2013 00:13:25 Football news, match reports and fixtures | theguardian.com

• Midfielder insists new financial muscle can end trophy drought • Wenger lines up £35m Luis Suarez and £23m Gonzalo Higuaín Mikel Arteta says it is "about time" that Arsenal made aggressive moves in the transfer market, as he reflected the sense of excitement in the club's dressing-room at the prospect of Arsène Wenger doing precisely that. Wenger is determined to sign a world-class forward and Liverpool's Luis Suárez has become his priority. Arsenal are in talks over the Uruguayan and they are prepared to test Liverpool's resolve with a £35m offer, which would most likely be rejected. If they go to £40m, however, it may leave Liverpool with an awkward decision, even though they are loath to sell to a Premier League rival. Arsenal, who are in a position of greater financial strength due to renegotiated commercial contracts, have also lined up a £23m deal for Gonzalo Higuaín of Real Madrid while they want a midfielder to play with Arteta and, possibly, a new goalkeeper. Arteta feels that the prospective additions are essential if the club is to compete for a first trophy since 2005 and he noted how a transfer coup would lift the mood of everybody at the Emirates Stadium. "The club have said they are going to be very ambitious in the market and have got the financial resources to get big players," Arteta said. "I think it's about time. When you compare us to the other top English clubs and the money they have paid, we are very far apart. The value of this club is the class and what it means is very difficult to match. Now, financially, they are very strong so maybe we will be more aggressive in the transfer market. There has never been a tradition at Arsenal to pay crazy, crazy money. "I am excited. They made it public that they are going to go big and the sort of players they have been linked with makes me happy. "It creates a good atmosphere and we need to do something because the other teams are doing it, and I think we will. "I believe we can be contenders again but it also creates a genuine atmosphere for the fans and they need that because we haven't won trophies in the last years. They need something back. I believe in what we have but if we can strengthen a bit, then we are going to make the gap with the other teams much closer. That's what we're looking for." Arteta recalled last summer, when Robin van Persie made the high-profile and morale-sapping defection to Manchester United. Alex Song also left for Barcelona, while the previous time out, Cesc Fábregas and Samir Nasri departed for Barcelona and Manchester City respectively. Arsenal, though, will not lose any stars this summer and it feels as though they are on the front foot. "There's a difference [in spirit] when you are trying to sell players and when you are trying to buy," Arteta said. "The difference between those two concepts is very big. If we do well [in the transfer market], I think you will see the difference on the pitch. We're not that far away. The fact that we haven't won it [a trophy] for eight years makes it harder mentally to believe but that's what we need to do. "I was disappointed when Robin left. He was the best player in our team, he made the difference for us. I didn't want him to go but we had to accept that he wanted to move on to a new challenge." The midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also spoke of the side-effects of a statement signing. "Whenever a new player comes into any team, it adds competition for places, which gets the best out of the players and keeps everyone on their toes," he said. "As a football fan, new signings at any club excite me. Even when I see new signings at my old club, Southampton, you always take notice. You always think about what that could change in the team."

Chelsea's Mikel John Obi attracts interest from Galatasaray

14 June 2013 21:18:40 Sport news, comment and results | theguardian.com

• Bid likely after the Confederations Cup • Nigerian midfielder had injury-hit season Galatasaray's interest in the Chelsea midfielder Mikel John Obi is to prompt a bid for the Nigerian international, most likely at the conclusion of the Confederations Cup in Brazil. Mikel, one of five senior players who remain on the books at Stamford Bridge from José Mourinho's first spell in charge at the club, is aware of the Turkish champions' intent but is not agitating to leave. The 26-year-old will instead gauge Chelsea's reaction to any offer that is tabled – it would have to exceed £12m for a player who is contracted until 2017 – and then scrutinise what personal terms Gala would put forward to entice him to Istanbul. The midfielder, who started 19 league games last term through an injury-interrupted campaign, played the whole game for Nigeria in Wednesday's World Cup qualifying draw in Namibia, a match staged on an artificial pitch to prompt some concern among Chelsea's medical staff given Mikel's problems with back and hip complaints. He will travel with the national squad on Saturday to Brazil where they will compete in the Confederations Cup having won the African Cup of Nations this year.

Mikel Arteta tips Arsenal to rise to occasion in Champions League race

30 April 2013 00:20:26 Sport news, comment and results | theguardian.com

• 'It will come down to nerve and who is more clinical' • Arsenal midfielder backs Lukas Podolski to provide vital goals Mikel Arteta believes that Arsenal's Champions League hopes will be decided by the capacity to hold their nerve and be ruthless, as he assessed the suffocatingly tight capital city battle with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur over the season's final three weeks. Arsenal's 1-1 home draw against the newly crowned champions Manchester United on Sunday extended their unbeaten run to seven Premier League matches and it was considered, in all quarters of the club, to have been a good result, even though it meant that they no longer had control of their top-four destiny. If Tottenham were to win each of their remaining four fixtures, including the one at Chelsea on Wednesday week, and Chelsea were not to drop any points in their other three matches, then Arsenal would finish outside of the Champions League places, irrespective of how they fared in their remaining games against Queens Park Rangers, Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United. Nobody at Arsenal, from the manager Arsène Wenger down, appears to believe that the nightmare scenario will play out. There is the conviction that, at the very least, Chelsea will not win at United on Sunday and/or Tottenham will not enjoy victory at Stamford Bridge. It might go some way to explaining why the team seemed content to play out the draw in the second half against United. The focus at Arsenal has turned inwards, with Arteta determined to see his team-mates thrive on the pressure and rise to the occasion. "It will come down to nerve and be about who is the most clinical at the right moments," the midfielder said. "When it gets to the last games, the teams who are the most clinical win. We have seen that over the last few weeks. It will be a battle for everyone. There is pressure on us like there is for the other teams. Every team in the Premier League is playing for something – relegation or Europe. It will be interesting." Arsenal's run-in would appear favourable, with QPR having had their relegation confirmed and Wigan coming to the Emirates Stadium three days after their FA Cup final against Manchester City. But Wigan will be fighting to preserve their Premier League status and Newcastle could yet be too, which would make Arsenal's last-day trip to St James' Park daunting. "I believe in our players but we have to show we can do it," Arteta said. "It is easy saying we have a better chance but it is up to us to do it on the pitch. Every game is difficult and anything can happen. We have to play for that." Arteta believes that United's firepower up front has been the decisive factor this season. Whereas Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham have each got two recognised strikers in their squads, United's quartet of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernández and Danny Welbeck have given them the edge. Manchester City blur the lines of the argument slightly, although they sold their fourth striker, Mario Balotelli, to Milan in January. Arsenal now need something out of Lukas Podolski, with Olivier Giroud having begun a three-game suspension against United. "The difference between United and the rest is that they have four top strikers," Arteta said. "Look at their goal difference. Lukas Podolski has scored a few goals and in front of goal he is the most prolific player we have. It is up to us to get him the chances. He has an unbelievable shot and, hopefully, he can do it for us." Arsenal Champions League David Hytner guardian.co.uk © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
