Leicester City tightened their grip on the Premier League with a win today, so with very little to excite ourselves about this term, we though we’d look ahead to the upcoming transfer window.
Wenger is claimed to be eyeing Morata’s signature, and Alexis is now claimed to be pushing for his arrival in the coming window. The striker talked up a potential switch to England in the future, but in reality, he is still early into his Juventus contract, and I don’t foresee him moving before the start of next season.
Kostas Manolas is believed to have been on our radar for some time, and is now said to be a priority signing for Wenger, but he confirmed recently that he has a number of players in mind, but he is not set on any particular player as of yet, and centre-back is not our weakest position currently either.
We are also claimed to be keeping tabs on Boca Juniors’ wonderkid Rodrigo Bentancur, who is enjoying his first-team role in the Argentine top division. Juventus are said to have first refusal on the 18 year-old’s signature, so I wouldn’t get too excited about our chances of bringing him to North London.
Gundogan has long-been linked with a switch to our club,but now Pep Guardiola is said to be putting the moves in to bring him to Manchester. The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is believed to be keen on moving clubs in the near future, but we all know that Man City don’t generally task their managers with transfer dealings, so the bulk of this story can be ruled out.
The most realistic story stems around Wojciech Szczesny. The goalkeeper is claimed to have decided that he wants to stay with Roma until the end of next season, before returning to challenge Petr Cech for a first-team role for the following season. The Polish international has revealed his love for our club on more than one occasion, and refuses to give up on his hopes of earning a regular role in our team.
I would love to see Morata join our attacking line, but i think we are relying on too many occurrences for that to happen… Can you see any of these rumours becoming truths?
