As the season starts to wind down, the transfer mill is picking up speed at a rapid rate, so I have rounded up a few rumours to tell you about.
Arsenal are said to be ‘ready’ to launch a £22 Million move to bring Roma winger Juan Iturbe to the Emirates this summer. Liverpool are also believed to be interested, but in reality, unless we are looking to sell any of our current crop, a winger is the last position we need to strengthen.
We are also said to have agreed a £15 Million deal for Morgan Schneiderlin to join from Southampton, with the Secret Footballer having previously claimed it was a done deal also. The Frenchman is a top player who I would love to see come to the club, but I find it hard to believe that a deal has already been agreed.
Porto striker Jackson Martinez has stated that he will be leaving his current club this summer, so of course that means that we could be set to sign him for £40 Million, although his agent has made it clear previously that he wants to move to Italy, so I wouldn’t get my hopes up just yet.
Last but not least, Paulo Dybala has been linked with a host of top European clubs, and his club president Maurizio Zamparini has named us as having made an offer for his signature in recent weeks. The public eye is not something Arsene Wenger normally likes involved in his transfer activity, and that could well hamper us moving forward for his signature. Zamparini said his sale would be complete by the end of the month, but his destination is still unclear.
I would love to see the Saints midfielder come in to play a key role for us next year, and I must admit that the hype created by Zamparini has got my attention, and I would quite like to see Dybala live up to that hype at the Emirates. Who would you like to join? Who do you believe is most likely to join?
