We are two months from the winter transfer window, but the international break always spurns up a few transfer rumours to keep Arsenal fans busy.
The latest rumour to spring up is our supposed eyeing of Marouann Fellaini, with the midfielder rejecting an offer of an extended contract with Manchester United. The Belgian international is claimed to be keen on one last pay day as he looks to make maximum earnings with a free transfer move. The reality is that we are the first team to be linked with any player because our name sells, but he could actually be worth looking at as we look to beef up our midfield.
One player who is tipped to leave Arsenal on a free transfer is Jack Wilshere, with his contract also up come the summer. Real Betis are now claimed to be confident of striking a deal which would see him move to Spain, but the player himself has already reiterated his love for and desire to stay with Arsenal, and the most likely scenario would still see him at the Emirates next term.
Gorka Guruzeta is a new name for me, but one who I can foresee becoming a household name in the coming years. The 21 year-old opened the scoring for Athletic Bilbao against Manchester United’s Under-23 side yesterday with an astonishing volley, and all under the watchful eye of our scouts, as well as Chelsea’s and of course United’s. The striker has been impressing in Bilbao’s reserve side in Segunda B, and is available on a free transfer come the end of the campaign.
Can you see any truth in the latest rumours?
