Arsenal are reported to have rekindled their interest in Feyenoord winger Robin van Persie as they look at bolstering their attack for next season. The runaway Premiership leaders tried to sign van Persie during the winter transfer window only to have their bid rebuffed by the Dutch giants.

Arsenal then switched their attentions to Spanish international Jose Antonio Reyes which seemed to kill their interest in van Persie.

Van Persie has revealed he is set to leave Feyenoord in the summer after turning down a new deal at De Kuip and he has attracted the interest of a host of clubs.

The Dutch Under-21 international has just one-year left on his current contract and Feyenoord have put a price tag of 3.75 million on his head.

PSV Eindhoven, Sevilla and Schalke have all registered an interest in the 20-year-old, but reports emanating from Holland suggest Arsenal have made a last-ditch bid to steal van Persie from under their noses.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is hoping Giovanni van Bronckhorst can complete a permanent move to Barcelona. Van Bronckhorst has been on loan at the Nou Camp since the start of the season and been a regular during the Catalan club's resurgence in form.

Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard appears keen to keep the Dutch international, who has operated at left-back.

Edwin van der Sar's howler gifted Arsenal a 1-0 win at Fulham and kept alive their dream of completing an unbeaten season in the Premiership.

The Fulham goalkeeper was left horribly embarrassed after eight minutes when he struggled to control Martin Djetou's routine back-pass and was tackled by Jose Antonio Reyes, who then clipped his shot into the empty net.

Fulham hit back through Luis Boa Morte, who drew a smart save from Jens Lehmann, and Steed Malbranque, whose curling effort hit the side netting.

But Arsenal could have doubled their lead 10 minutes from half-time when Ashley Cole headed straight at van der Sar.

Fulham had enjoyed the better of the game and nearly equalised on 56 minutes when Malbranque's brilliant overhead kick went just over.

Reyes nearly got his second on 70 minutes when he dragged a shot wide and he was nearly made to paid for that miss when Sylvain Legwinski's powerful drive was deflected wide by Cole.

Moritz Volz also went close for Fulham, while Thierry Henry's free-kick, saved by van der Sar, nearly gave him his 30th Premiership goal as time ran out.

I was hoping that they were not going to go unbeaten all season but at the end of the day i guess they deserve it. They have been one of the only consistant teams in the Prem this season.

Shame they never took it into the cups aswell LOL!!!!!!!!

Dennis Bergkamp will spend another season with Arsenal after agreeing a one-year contract extension with the Barclaycard Premiership champions.

The Dutch striker, 35 on Monday, has seven goals from 35 games this season, and was delighted to have extended his stay at the north London club.

Arsenal had to come from a goal down against Leicester before finally making history with a 2-1 victory at Highbury.

The Barclaycard Premiership champions ensured they became the first team this century to go an entire season unbeaten in the top flight after second-half goals from Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira overturned Leicester's shock lead.

Former Gunner Paul Dickov rose at the far post to head the relegated Foxes in front on 29 minutes but Henry slotted home a penalty two minutes after the break and Vieira (67) rounded goalkeeper Ian Walker before rolling the ball home.

So they did the whole season unbeaten, the bastards!!!


As my good friend flux said to me, they'll probably be just as good next season but most likely everyone else wont be SO BAD!

So hopefully things will even themselves out and they can expect a fight next season.

Well i thought they was a bit lucky in some of the games. Next season will be tougher for them and as you say everyone was sooo bad it was unreal. Of all the teams to go unbeaten it had to be them. Thing is i don't think they are that good a team, they are a real dirty side and some great individuals. But take away Henry and they don't look as good.

Azzholes i can't believe they did it. Oh well something else for them to brag about. It's not the actual club i dislike it's some of the players. Oh ok maybe all the players. It's their attitudes and the dirtyness of their play and how they bloody get away with it all the time.

Arsenal's Thierry Henry is on course to win the Golden Shoe award for being the top scorer in the European leagues.
Henry currently leads the standings but the winner will not be decided until mid-June when all the leagues are over.

The striker, who scored 30 goals, would be the first Frenchman to claim the award and the first Premiership player since Kevin Phillips in 1999-2000.

The Golden Shoe is based on a points system, with goals in the minor leagues counting less than in the major ones.

Arsenal defender Lauren is expected to sign a new contract with the Gunners. The 27-year-old Cameroon international, a regular in Arsene Wenger's team, joined the club in May 2000 for 7.2m from Real Mallorca.

Spanish goalkeeper Manuel Almunia is flabbergasted by reports that he is being hunted by Barclaycard Premiership champions Arsenal.

Almunia belongs to relegated Celta Vigo but has spent an excellent season on loan with Albacete.

Now it is reported that the London club are interested in luring him to Highbury.

Arsenal are continuing to look to Spain for new talent with Carlos Carmona the latest player appearing on Arsene Wenger's radar. The Mallorca midfielder is being compared to a young Luis Figo in some quarters and is an Under-17 team-mate of Highbury prodigy Cesc Fabregas. After snaring Jose Antonio Reyes for a club record fee in January, Wenger is fully aware of the rich amount of talent being produced in Spain, and is keeping a close watch on Carmona. Mallorca are believed to be aware of the threat of losing their promising right winger and the Balearic club have inserted a number of clauses in his contract which makes it difficult for any predators to lure him away cheaply.

Celta Vigo have confirmed they are in discussions with English champions Arsenal over the possible sale of keeper Manuel Almunia.

The 27-year-old shot-stopper spent last season on-loan at Albacete, and played a key part as the club avoided a widely-tipped relegation after their promotion from the Segunda Division.

To be honest i can't see them having a good as season as the last one. Every team is going to after them and they will not find it as easy. It looks like a few might be on their way aswell.
