He may not be the striker that a lot of Arsenal fans were hoping to see come to north London this summer to boost the fire power of the Gunners, but the Croatian Republic international Mario Mandzukic does have a lot going for him. And according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumours he could be available after his current club Juventus beat us to the mega money transfer of Gonzalo Higuain.
The Arsenal transfer target Gonzalo Higuain is apparently set to return to Italy and join up with his team mates and the coaching staff of Napoli four days from now, after his involvement with the Argentina national team all the way to the final of the Copa America which they lost on penalties to the Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez and his Chile side.
Arsenal do not even play the first match of this pre-season until next Friday when we face Lens in France, but Arsene Wenger is already facing something of a crisis in terms of his squad. No surprise there then. The Frenchman may well be hoping that the next few weeks prove that the likes of Theo Walcott, Joel Campbell and Chuba Akpom are more than capable of firing Arsenal to a good start in the Premier League, but the more realistic point of view is that we need more.
Just a few days it was looking like the chances of Arsenal completing the transfer of France’s Euro 2016 star Moussa Sissoko were slipping away after his current club Newcastle United chose to slap an inflated price tag of around £35 million on the fast and exciting attacking player.
Go on Arsenal fans, keep dreaming about the Gunners completing the transfer of the Spanish international forward Alvaro Morata, I dare you. I double dare you but in all honesty I think you would have a more productive time if you tried to make a model of the universe using only spaghetti hoops.
Juventus are claimed to be eyeing a move to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal this summer.
The Old Lady confirmed that they would be losing Alvaro Morata back to Real Madrid this week, with the Spanish giants set to trigger his buy-back clause following an impressive two-year spell in Italy.
With Arsenal’s hopes of the Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy accepting the offer to become a Gunner this summer looking increasingly forlorn, you would think that the priority for Arsene Wenger now in the transfer market was to find anopther forward that he thinks will give Arsenal what we need to win the Premier League next season.
Real Madrid are claimed to have postponed a meeting with Juventus in which they were set to discuss Alvaro Morata’s future.
The Spanish international’s transfer has been speculated in the press for the past few months, with Real claimed to be ready to trigger his release clause this summer, before selling him on for a sizeable profit.
