I for one am hoping for an exciting summer of arrivals for Arsenal, and a number of stars are being linked with moves to the Emirates.
N’Golo Kante has been strongly linked with a move to North-London this summer, and his club are now said to be resigned to losing their defensive midfield demon. We are claimed to be eyeing a £20 Million bid in order to trigger his minimum fee release clause, and would be a huge coup.
Another huge signing would the arrival of Alvaro Morata. The Juventus striker has proven to be a big game player in Italy, taking the record for consecutive European games scored in away from the legendary Alessandro Del Piero. We are now claimed to have offered Real Madrid £51 Million to make the move happen, with the Spaniards able to trigger a buy-back clause and make a vast profit on their former youth product. Cheeky, but who cares if we land our man!
We are also believed to be eyeing up three young future stars at present, including Reece Oxford, Kieran Tierney and Ben Chilwell.
The West Ham centre-back is said to have turned down a contract offer from his club, and is demanding £40,000 per week plus a £1 Million signing on fee to agree a new deal. We are following the developments…
Kieran Gibbs looks likely to leave this summer, having failed to earn a regular place in the Arsenal team this term, and we are likely to bring in one of Chilwell or Tierney to play as understudy to Nacho Monreal this year. The Celtic youngster has enjoyed an impressive year in Scotland, and was even selected for the division’s Team of the Year, while the Leicester man has rarely featured for his side. I know which one I’d prefer to sign…
Is Morata the man needed to bring back the glory days?
