It feels like a very long time since we Arsenal fans were getting excited and optimistic about the summer transfer window to come, with Arsene Wenger setting down an early marker with the big money signing of the Switzerland international midfield star Granit Xhaka from Borussia Monchengladbach.
It is all very well for Arsene Wenger to keep on planning and building for the future of Arsenal Football Club, and pretty commendable and selfless if he is coming to the end of his time in charge of the Gunners as appears to be the case, so I was not surprised to see the recent Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with Rob Holding.
Whats happened to Wellington Silva?
Who remembers the name Wellington Silva? Not many I suppose, as the young Brazilian has gone completely off the trail at Arsenal ever since signing for the Gunners.
Arsenal appear likely to miss out on Rob Holding’s signature, with the club’s far from close to price-agreement.
The Gunners are claimed to have made an initial offer of £750,000 for the 20 year-old, which has been turned down, with the sides valuing the defender on completely different scales.
Today’s piece of Arsenal transfer speculation comes from the lower tiers of English football, with the Gunners apparently lining up a deal for a Bolton Wanderers defender.
