The Arsenal transfer rumours this week have been moving us further and further away from the hope of securing the transfer of Morgan Schneiderlin from Southampton, to the extent that the papers today had all but signed the Frenchman for our Premier League rivals Manchester United and moved Arsene Wenger on to the pursuit of the Chile international midfielder Artuto Vidal.
But as we know, it is not the football media that does the transfer business at Arsenal and until we hear for sure, we just have to wait and hope that the boss is on the ball. So maybe we should not be quite so quick to forget about Schneiderlin, especially after and ESPN report revealed that the player himself has not made up his mind on where to continue his career next season.
The report claims that the 25-year old is considering offers from a couple of clubs at the moment. Now one of those could be our north London rivals Tottenham, who have been linked with him and are coached by his former boss Pochettino. After Schneiderlin declared the wish to play in the Champions League was one of the biggest reasons for his move though, you would think that Spurs was not an option.
So could Arsenal still be in the running for this proven Premier League star?
