Arsenal keeping tabs on City’s Denayer

Earlier this month a couple of publications reported that Arsenal are interested in Manchester City centre-back Jason Denayer.

Arseblog News has since learned that the Gunners have indeed been monitoring the 21-year-old Belgian and are considering an offer for his services.

Denayer moved to Manchester three years ago from Anderlecht and is yet to play a competitive game for City, but has since undertaken successful loan spells at Celtic and Galatasaray in the last two seasons.

Marc Wilmots handed the youngster, who can also play right-back, his international debut for Belgium against Israel in March last year and he was taken to the Euros in France this summer, although his only appearance did see him turned inside out by Hal Robson-Kanu as the Red Devils lost 3-1 to Wales.

As The Times [paywalled] report today, Pep Guardiola hasn’t ruled out keeping Denayer at the Etihad this season although his position could be put in jeopardy should the Citizens successfully acquire John Stones from Everton.

It remains to be seen whether Arsenal’s decision to rebuff City’s interest in Hector Bellerin has any bearing on a potential deal. Who knows what type of bickering takes place over the fax machines these days?

Having signed a 20-year-old defender in Rob Holding we think it would be pretty odd to fill the Big F*cking Gap left by injured Per Mertesacker with more inexperience, that said, it’s possible the club see this as another signing with long-term potential.

Do we believe our own source…hmm, we’ll be cautious

Ickenham gooner

Went for full poo.

Ooooh Ahhhh Ray Parlour

Good to see Ickenham there too!


It’s still coming out …


first time I’m seeing this new transfer poop thing
mehn, couldn’t stop laughing when i saw “thanks for pooping”

Cat Biscuits

I’d rather not sign another Manchester based defender after last time…

Mr. G

The only two times I’ve ever seen him play are the two times we (Wales) beat Belgium recently. Wouldn’t say he’s as bad THAT defender you are referencing, but we’ve already signed a young promising centre half and don’t need another one. Mustafi please.

Rozza the samourai

Would you be OK with Sakho from Liverpool instead?


Are we trying to go with more youngsters this season?

There seems to be a bit of a focus on making Stan look good as a sports business man in USA and what we do in Europe. Probably explains gazidis comments..

Which is kinda expected from Stan.. But then why isn’t winning also a priority??

Is winning the equivalent of red jam to Stan? Surely he must have tasted red jam before.

I think arseblog needs to liberate stan’s taste buds!


It looks like we’re just looking at anyone and everyone. There isn’t even a particular theme to the kind of target. Apart from they all play for other clubs.


On the other hand, signing someone who already plays for our club would be an exceedingly Arsenal-like thing to do, and would give a whole new meaning to the oft-used phrase “like a new signing.”

Get on it, Dickie.

Arshavin's fake moustache

I fear negotiations would probably break down.

Dial square

No chance of signing an attacking player is there?????

Mr Gooner

Is anyone paying attention to our signings and collection?


I also suspect these signings will be to strengthen our U-23 squad in the Premier League 2.


No thanks. We have holding and Chambers plus Bielik as our prospects. Get Koulibaly or Mustafi and we’re good to go.


We are fffin joke we need serious changes at this club are we are aiming for top 4 again.while these clowns run this club we will just be a laughingstock shower of w**kers


Will someone please put his rattle back in his pram.


Cleared my bowels out on that one.


Yay, let’s sign a City reject!!! Gazidis is destroying our beloved club.


Poop crashes the application on iOS. Fix it blogs!


It’s easy to fix: don’t use the app!


That sounds more like a ‘workaround’!


This guy is a bloody joke. Is the last person we want. Had to go full Poo on this one

Disappointed Gooner

Why is he a joke? At Celtic he had a solid partnership with Virgil van Dijk and looked every bit as composed and experienced as him, despite only being 19. By all accounts he had another strong season last year with Galatasaray, including playing in the Champions League. He’s good on the ball, reasonably pacy and strong defensively, don’t see why he wouldn’t be a great signing. Varane was playing for Real Madrid at eighteen, don’t really see why Denayer at 21 couldn’t play for Arsenal.


‘keeping tabs on’, ‘preparing bid for’, ‘monitoring situation’ blah blah fucking blah.

Action for fuck sake, action.

This guy and Lukaku’s brother were abject during Belgium’s last game in EURO but it was the only time I saw him playing. He probably is better than what I saw that day otherwise he wouldn’t be at City and selected by Belgium.

Merlin's Panini

I don’t believe this one.

Snake in the grARSE

People rating this a 10 but it actually would be so arsenal to do it sadly.


Gazidaz denays Denayer – Ivan Gazidaz CEO of Arsenal has denayed any interest in Manchester City’s Belgian centre-back Jason Denayer. “Arsene Wenger likes this player and feels he could be one for the future” says Gazidaz, before adding “While Arsene has final word on all transfers, we will not be pursuing this acquisition. Purchasing players is simply too dangerous. I have an alergy to silver and happiness and we are a business that likes to amass wealth from an increasingly frustrated and disllusioned fan base.” “We are exploring many new initiatives and indeed the club will be replenshing its playing… Read more »


Denayers Stormborn.


Isn;t he in Shenzhen right now with the Man City squad after the ICC game?

Winning Gunner

To be honest, this statement cracks me up “Big F*cking Gap.” We have to fill those gaps with an experienced defender. For those who are saying Mert should not be playing for arsenal, why are we all crying that his injury is a big deal? Even Cech knows how important he is. On a similar note, I am kind of becoming infuriated with the Arsenal management. I know that we have to be financially responsible as a club but it is becoming intolerable. If the likes of West Ham and Crystal Palace are willing to spend around 30m on a… Read more »

BFG is a very good but very slow CB who sometimes is weak defending crosses.


This was my first proper full poop since returning from holiday 2 days ago

Pooping at home is always more relaxing cheers blogs


If Wenger doesn’t get a good CB and a very good striker we’re going to struggle even to get top 4 it’s as simple as that; everybody is getting good players in this summer, even spurs with Wanyama and Jenssen for example. Finishing second last season was really a miracle like Mertesacker said.

The other top teams won’t be as awful as last season, let’s forget that.


I am going for amoebic dysentery on this one


Loving the interactive pooper.
Technology knows no bounds

Coq au Vin

Or no bowel.

He's got no hair but we don't care...

Perfect, just what we need.



Even if there is any truth in this, this could well be old news. I mean we were probably watching this guy, but now that we have signed another young center back any interest we had might have waned.


Really hope this doesn’t lead to Arseblog becoming clickbait…

Pat Mustard

Whilst he could be decent enough player, he’s not what we need to replace the BFG. An experienced centre half to play alongside Kos would be splendid.

Berahino. It’s gonna be Berahino. That makes me a little Sado.


I think we should change the transfer tab to ‘sighnings’ ;o)


I personally hope we sign Mustafi and keep Chambers over signing Denayer. Although if he’s being signed for his full back ability then maybe he won’t be directly challenging Chambers’ center half place and instead will replace Debuchy?

Matt K

Why not just slap 25 million down and get Mangala instead?

Another thing, what do blind people do if their guide dog does a poo in public?


Its very rare for guide dogs to poo in public. They’re trained to poo on demand, so the blind person ensures they do it in safe locations.


I was just finished wiping my arise when I read thanks for pooping.

Blind people “look the other way”…
