Arsenal news – Schwarzer keen on Gunners, New away kit reaction, Fabregas gives mixed signals

Every morning A Different League searches the nations press to bring you the latest goings on at Arsenal. Today:

Fabregas gives mixed signals.

Various sources have pictured Cesc Fabregas wearing a Barcelona in the wake of Spain’s World Cup victory. The incident occurred when Barcelona players Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique pulled the shirt over the player’s head during celebrations upon the team’s arrival back in Spain. Both the player and his father were quick to play down the significance of the event and the Arsenal captain dedicated the victory to the club and its supporters: “All I can say is that this is for the Arsenal players, for the Arsenal fans, for the manager and for all of the staff.” According to the Guardian, the player made a faux pas, stating: “I am really proud to have been an Arsenal player,” but quickly corrected himself, stating: “I am an Arsenal player and I am really proud to be able to give this trophy to all the fans,” before refusing to comment on his future any further.

Schwarzer keen on Gunners.

Mark Schwarzer is interested in a move to Arsenal according to Sky Sports. The club has already had a reported £2m bid for the Fulham goalkeeper turned down and reports that he recently underwent a medical at the club have been refuted . It is thought that the Australian itnernational has become the priority signing for Arsenal who are set to return with an increased offer. With the player out of contract at the end of the coming season and approaching 38, Arsenal are unlikely to significantly increase their bid, and the player’s desire to move across London may force the deal.

New away kit reaction.

Arsenal fans are largely pleased with the club’s new away kit according to interviews conducted by the club’s official website. The fans interviewed were keen to get their hands on the new shirt which officially went on sale on Tuesday as the Gunners began their build up to the new campaign by releasing the away strip for the 2010/11 season. The fans are thought to favour the return to a yellow away kit, the colour traditionally worn for the club’s change strip. Last season’s blue away kit will now become the third choice strip for the Gunners and last season’s somewhat contraversial white third kit has been dropped after fans voiced their discontent at its similarities to the shirt of bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
