There are now just six weeks to go until the Janary transfer window, so we can expect thousands of Arsenal transfer rumours in the meantime, especially as we all KNOW that the Gunners desperately need reinforcements!
The DM area is an absolte must in January, but with the likelihood of Sami Khedira arriving, the Daily Mail seems to be convinced that Arsenal will now try to entice Monaco’s 30million-rated Joao Moutinho in his place. I am personally not convinced that the Portugese international has the physique to do well in the Premier League, but what do I know?
A much better option for me would be Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin, who is definitely one of the Premier League’s best defensive midfielders. Everyone knows that the French international was pushing for a move to a Big Club in the summer, but his manager Ronald Koeman refused in the Mirror to discuss Schneiderlins future. The Saints boss said: “I am saying nothing about Morgan’s future.
“I know that people can take things out of interviews and make a big deal about it. We will see what happens. He’s a player of Southampton.”
I would love him to come to Arsenal, but are we still considered to be a Bigger Club than Southampton at the moment?
A MOST welcome addition would be Chelsea’s Petr Cech, and the Mail seems to think that Chelsea will definitely let him leave and supposedly have bids from Arsenal and Liverpool in the region of £7million. Cech would be a snip at that price, but can you really see that happening? I have already explained why I can’t!
Lastly we are linked with the 21 year-old Ipswich defender Tyrone Mings. John Cross reckons Ipswich value the 6ft 3in defender at around £10million, so that for me is the most likely arrival out of that selection of rumours…..
