There is a very likely chance that the Gunners will be bringing in a defensive midfielder this summer, so any Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with this position should be taken seriously. One of the most talked about in the last few weeks has been a bid for the unhappy PSG man Yohan Cabaye, who was the subject of a £10million bid from Arsene Wenger two years ago.
The ex-Newcastle star then moved to PSG for 15m but the report reckons that Wenger will finally get his man at the reported price. Wenger seems to be keener on older, more experienced players lately and at 29 Cabaye is not too old for a player in that position and could be excellent competition for Francis Coquelin.
It seems that we are definitely going for “one for the future” in the Argentine youngster Maxi Romero after the Velez Sarsfield president Raul Gamez confirmed that Arsenal have made a bid for the “next Lionel Messi”.
Gamez said: “Arsenal have made a big offer for Maxi Romero. I don’t want to talk figures just yet but it’s a big offer.”
Another interesting rumour concerns the German defender Kevin Wimmer, who is an Austrian international currently at Koln. Although only 22 he has already made 0 appearances in the Bundesliga, and at 6ft 2in he could probably handle the rigours of the Premiership. I am sure that Wenger has analysed his stats but for just 5m he could be a bargain. An added bonus is that the Metro reports that Tottenham thought they had a deal wrapped up so we could frustrate our dreaded rivals!
They all sound like possible Wenger deals to me….
