So the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are starting to appear more regularly as we head into the final stages of the season. Jack Wilshere has appeared to have made it clear that he won’t be signing his new contract with the Gunners, and the latest is that Everton’s Sam Allardyce wants the Englishman to join up with Theo Walcott up at Goodison Park.
Jack would be sure to get a giant signing on fee for arriving on a Bosman and will give him a higher wage than the paycut that Arsenal have supposedly offered the midfielder. There have also been reports that some Italian sides have shown an interest including Arsenal’s Europa League rivals AC Milan. I am very surprised that Arsenal (and especially Wenger) didn’t try very hard to keep the fiery Wilshere as we all know he is an Arsenal man through and through. But, then again, so was Walcott!
In January, the Gunners were very strongly linked with a move for Steven N’Zonzi, who had fallen out with his boss at Sevilla and seemed to be forcing the club to let him return to England with Arsenal, but either the management at the La Liga side had a sudden change of heart, or the money offered was way beyong their expectations.
Now, after last night’s display by N’Zonzi as Sevilla knocked Man United out of the Champions League, Arsenal fans are once again calling for the Gunners to renew their interest this summer and pay whatever it takes to bring the French international to the Emirates. No one can deny that we need a tough tackling midfielder so why shouldn’t we go for the man with extensive premier League experience?
