The only concrete Arsenal transfer rumour we have had so far was the news that the 34 year-old Juventus centre-back Stefan Lichsteiner had visited London Colney for talks with the Gunners over a possible move to Arsenal as a free agent, but it seems that the deal is far from complete and he has other options available.
Lichsteiner is currently with the Switzerland squad preparing for the World Cup and the ex-Lazio player told journalists that it is far from a done deal. He also has the chance to remain in Turin for another year on an extension.
“Nothing is finished yet.” he told Calciomercato. “I cannot comment on the negotiations.
“As long as nothing is completed, that is always interesting in football. I think we all know that.”
So it is fair to say we can ignore the supposed ITK’s (hi Kev!) who have been assuring us that the deal was completed a couple of weeks ago…
