I would love for this Arsenal transfer to happen as not only would it provide the Gunners with a player that I believe would seriously enhance our chances of winning the Premier League this season, it would also really get under the skin of the serial Wenger and Arsenal taunter Jose Mourinho.
According to a report in The Express, the Chelsea manager is palanning to try again to sign the England international centre back John Stones from Everton. Mourinho was knocked back a fair few times by the Toffees in the summer and his aggressive approach to the transfer managed to really annoy Everton and their manager Roberto Martinez.
That is one reason why I think that Wenger and Arsenal could have more success with a bid in January. Another is that Chelsea are not the attractive option they were in the summer and their manager’s idea of blaming everyone but himself for their problems is hardly going to entice a young player to want to sign for them.
Wenger on the other hand is well respected and loved by the players he works with and with Arsenal looking good for a title challenge, is this the perfect moment for us to go for the transfer of this player who could turn out to be one of the best defenders in the world?
