Maybe Arsenal are interested in signing the Portugal international Jose Fonte from Southampton. We could certainly do worse than bringing in this highly experienced centre back to cover the gaps in our back line caused by the injury problems of Mertesacker and Gabriel.
The rumour mill never ceases to amaze us with how quickly stories get churned up, but the newspapers love to speculate about Arsenal’s transfer business, and are rarely right.
There have been many crazy transfer rumours this summer, but the latest two to come out of the woodwork are really stretching the imagination of Arsenal fans. One is a free transfer and one is a quoted at being totally out of Arsenal’s reach moneywise.
Over the course of the past week Arsenal have been heavily rumoured in the media to be interested in signing Leicester City star man Riyad Mahrez following on from the winger’s fantastic performances last season. Arsenal are in desperate need of more of a presence up front and Mahrez would certainly offer us that, but are the Gunners any closer to wrapping up a deal for this fine talent?
As the old saying goes, you wait ages for a bus, then two come along at once! Well it may not be buses on Arsene Wenger’s mind, but instead the idea can be applied to transfer targets, with Wenger set to step up his interest in two defensive options.
Icardi’s manager has his say!
Arsenal have been linked with Mauro Icardi over the last few days, with Arsene Wenger showing his latest striker interest in the Inter Milan man.
I do hope that Arsene Wenger has a fantastic ace up his sleeve when it comes to getting a new striker for Arsenal fans to cheer about in the current summer transfer window, but I must admit to living more in hope than expectation and as the days and weeks tick by my concern increases that it will be the same old story for us.
The Morata saga continues!
One transfer rumour that just will not go away is Álvaro Morata to Arsenal and this time the latest development comes straight from the horse’s mouth!
