Aleksandr Golovin has been one of the best players in this year world cup so far. With his country Russia having played two matches ( both of which they won ) he already has one goal and two assists to his name. He was linked with a move to Arsenal when Wenger was in charge with scouts regularly following his progress, but since the Frenchman left nothing was said about his potential signing until recently.
Lucas Torreira Deal All But Done, Gonçalo Guedes Could Be Next Arsenal Signing
Arsenal has done well so far in the transfer market. Having yesterday confirmed the signing of Bernd Leno, Sampdoria president has come out to say their star player Lucas Torreira has been sold. Although he didn’t say the player was sold to Arsenal but virtually all media outlet in Italy, France, the UK and Uruguay have it that Arsenal has signed the player.
It has been widely reported that Arsenal has just £70 million to spend this summer. So far, if you believe the tabloids that’s, Arsenal have completed or about to complete the signing of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen for £19.3 million, Lucas Torreira for £25 million and Sokratis Papastathopoulos for £16 million. If the reports are accurate, that’s £60.3m spent so far or about to be spent.
It would appear that the Arsenal net is closing around the Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira with the latest news that the Gunners have got a medical team in place in Russia, to finalize the transfer of the Uruguayan to Arsenal before anyone else gets in there first.
The ex-Stoke midfielder Steven N’Zonzi was very heavily linked with a move to Arsenal in January after a very public falling out with his coach at Sevilla, and many Arsenal fans thought that he would be the perfect addition that the Gunners needed to give some protection to our out-of-form defenders.
It would appear that Arsenal have beaten Liverpool and Napoli to the signing of the Bayer Leverkusen keeper Bernd Leno after reaching an agreement with the Bundesliga side yesterday, according to Calciomercato.
This must be one of the longest ever will-he/won’t-he sagas in Arsenal’s history as the question of whether Jack Wilshere will still be playing for us next season has been rumbling from before the beginning of last season.
