We are still months away from the winter transfer window, so I wont bore you too often with the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, but just thought I’d give you a snippet of what is going around, as it is my duty to cover ALL Arsenal stories in the press!
The truly reliable Metro (sarcasm!) is giving us the first report about a move to sign Grzegorz Krychowiak in January, who we have been linked with an interest for some months now. The Polish international scored a wonderful half-volley from outside the box to deny the Republic of Ireland an automatic place in Euro 2016, and has continued to earn plaudits across Spain and Europe. I can’t imagine too much is happening behind the scenes currently, but I hope we do land the Sevilla star.
Another reliable source in the Mirror, is claiming we have had our scouts keeping tabs on Schalke’s Leroy Sane, who is in tremendous form, bagging seven goals in his last 10 matches in all competitions. He certainly looks an exciting prospect, but Schalke (currently third in the Bundesliga) are usually quite stubborn in the transfer market (as we well know having tried to sign Julian Draxler previously), and the fee will most likely be outside Wenger’s willingness.
The same report mentions that we are tracking Stephan El Sharaawy, who is currently on-loan from AC Milan. The Italy international has struggled since picking up a foot injury in December 2013, and managed only 28 appearances over a two year period. He is returning to form in France, and is apparently on Wenger’s wanted list, because what we really need right now is more players who can play between midfield and attack…
