If these latest Arsenal transfer rumours are right, then the Gunners are one of a number of teams that are interested in the transfer of the out of favour Man City star Yaya Toure, who seems to have been completely frozen out by their new manager Pep Guardiola.
According to a Daily Star report, Arsenal and Man United are the Premier League clubs looking at the powerful midfielder and there is interest in abroad as well. Toure’s current contract at the Etihad runs out at the end of this season and the report reveals that the player’s agent thinks he will them leave.
But Dimitri Seluk has been saying all sorts of things about Guardiola and apparently his client will not be getting back into the City side unless apologies are forthcoming, which seems unlikely. Surely both Pep and Yaya would rather get this sorted as soon as possible, so any club wanting the 33-year old will be looking at the January transfer window.
If Arsenal are serious I think we could beat Man United and Mourinho to him, as City will prefer to deal with us instead of their local rivals and the money involved is not going to be a lot. Toure is a proven asset in the Premier League and even at 33 I think he could do a job for us, especially if any more Gunners pick up an injury between now and January.
Would you want Wenger to press on with this Arsenal transfer?
