All the Arsenal transfer news in the papers this morning are reporting that Arsene Wenger is in negotiations with Everton for the crazy Belgian Marouane Fellaini, but is so far refusing to match the £23m release clause which would allow him to move to a Champions League club.
The young Lyon playmaker Clement Grenier only has one year left on his contract at the French giants, but his boss, club president Jean-Michel Aulas, has yesterday revealed that he is yet to receive any offer for the 22 year-old and is still hoping to persuade him to sign an extension to his current deal, especially as the club held on to the Third Champions League place.
The avalanche of Arsenal transfer rumours over the last month has been led by the news that the arrival of Stevan Jovetic is expected to be named as an Arsenal player as soon as the season finishes, and we are all waiting expectantly despite rumoured interest from Juventus as well.
Jack Wilshere is heading for a small operation in the summer to remove a pin from his ankle, but is still expected to play some part in today’s game against Newcastle due to the injury to Mikel Arteta.
It is absolutely brilliant that Arsenal are being linked with some top, top, top players for a change, and if this report in the Spanish media is true then it means that Arsene Wenger really is buying players that will improve the team!
