If there is an element of truth to all the transfer rumours you hear involving Arsenal, then Arsene Wenger’s list of targets must be as thick as the Yellow Pages. Well it looks like Le Prof can cross one of those names off his list today, as the talented and powerful defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama has revealed his intention of staying at Celtic.
There is a lot of transfer rumours around concerning Arsenal at the moment, but none of them seem to be good for us! For starters the Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue, who has been touted as Arsene Wenger’s top target this summer, has now come out and announced that his dream move would be to the French Champions Paris Saint Germain, and not only that, but he says they are already in talks about the move.
The summer transfer window does not open for a good few weeks yet, and the players that Arsenal are seriously targeting may be different depending on whether we finish in the Champions League or Europa League places, but you can bet that Arsene Wenger, his scouts and the backroom staff are working on the signings that they want to make.
As the season progresses there are more and more Arsenal transfer rumours appearing in the papers, and today’s Mail is suggesting that the Gunners are going to try again for Dortmund’s Mario Gotze this summer.
It seems as if Abou Diaby’s career at Arsenal is never going to fulfill it’s early promise, after the French midfielder has picked up another injury that will keep him on the sidelines for an extended period of time.
