Manchester United have agreed their first summer signing (subject to a medical) ahead of their assault on the Premier League title next season, so I thought I’d indulge you with a selection of the latest selection of Arsenal rumours.
Karim Benzema is claimed by many to be surplus to requirements this summer, with Real Madrid keen on replacing him. Liverpool and Man United are believed to be set to vie with us for his signature, but I don’t believe he is any better than Olivier Giroud, and I cant imagine paying his large wages to place him on our bench.
Reports are claiming that Juventus star Paul Pogba has handed a transfer request in to his current club, with Arsenal, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Manchester City all having been linked throughout this season. We aren’t mentioned in the specific report, but I am a big fan of the French superstar, and if we could get him for under £60 Million then I believed we should make him our marquee signing of 2015. If it wasn’t for FIFA FFP, I would think a move to Man City was on the cards, so we could go head-to-head with Chelsea for his signature.
Another player who is claimed to be up for joining Arsenal in the summer window is previous target Juan Quintero, who plays for Porto. The 22 year-old was one of the stars of last summer’s World Cup for Colombia, and is believed to be available for around £8.5 Million. Too early to say whether we would be interested in a move however as we are already very well-stocked with attacking midfielders,but he is still quite young and could be ne for the future?
