The transfer window is yet to kick into top gear, but signings appear imminent, and we thought we’d give you a brief update of the latest reports and speculation.
Mohamed Elneny is firmly expected to be announced as an Arsenal player in the coming days, and Arsene Wenger has reiterated that thought in his press conference today.
The Frenchman stated: “It’s complicated a little bit but we work hard on it. I hope in the next 2-3 days we get to the end of it.”
Aubameyang was claimed to have been the subject of a €60 Million bid by our beloved club this week, with speculation spanning from him being absent from training.
His absence was simply because he travelled to the awards ceremony in Africa, where he picked up the African Player of the Year award for 2015, where he announced he would not join Arsenal, nor did he expect to leave Dortmund in the near future.
Centre-back Benedikt Howedes has been linked with a move to the Emirates for some time now, and latest reports from Germany are claiming that we will make our move for him in the summer.
The German international will be entering the final 12 months of his contract, and will be available for a £9 Million fee.
Last but not least, Adrien Rabiot is reported to have sent his agent, who just so happens to be his mother, to London for talks over a move to Arsenal.
Veronique Rabiot is said to have held talks with Arsene Wenger, and a deal looks likely to happen for the 20 year-old.
Our friends over at AstralFootball.com seem to believe the developments with Rabiot could affect the transfer of Elneny however, with the pair both favouring central midfield roles.
You never know though, Veronique may have just been asking Wenger’s opinion on a new hand bag…
Would you rather the coveted PSG wonderkid, or the experienced Egyptian?
