One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours could see the Gunners embroiled in a transfer battle with five other Premier League clubs, according to a report in The Mirror. And that could definitely turn into an interesting fight.
The player involved, German international winger Karim Bellarabi, must be feeling quite good about himself after scouts from Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Man United, Tottenham and Newcastle all turned up to watch him play for Bayer Leverkusen against the Russian club Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League this week.
And the 24-year old did not disappoint, putting in a star performance to help the Bundesliga club inflict a rare defeat on the side managed by former spud boss AVB. Bellarabi has only just broken into the Germany senior side, but hye has taken off this season, starting all 13 games for Leverkusen and scoring five goals into the bargain.
With his club doing well in the Bundesliga and looking strong favourites to make it into the Champions League knockout stages, it is unlikely that Bellarabi will be sold in the January transfer window. But if he keeps playing thae way he has been doing, Arsene Wenger could be involved in a six-way transfer tussle with our Premier League rivals in the summer.
