Arsenal are claimed to be ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic a two-year contract, to make the move from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
I definitely think that Arsene Wenger needs to strengthen the Arsenal defensive options this summer, assuming that the Frenchman does not have a change of heart and hang up his zippy coat when the season ends of course. Maybe Calum Chambers is going to be a brilliant centre back in the future but he is not there yet and neither Gabriel or Per Mertesacker have been consistent and convincing alongside our best defender Laurent Koscielny.
Arsenal are in desperate need of a top class striker to lead the line, and Edinson Cavani has confirmed that he will be considering his future at the end of the season.
The PSG star has failed to overthrow first-choice Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a central role up front, and is believed to have grown frustrated at having been forced to play out wide.
This would be great news for Arsenal FC and would give us Arsenal fans some great ammunition to fire at our counterparts on the red half of Merseyside in the banter wars over the summer and into next season, especially as it would be the second time in a couple of seasons that it happened and after the way they took the mickey about our transfer bid for Luis Suarez it would be ironic to say the least.
We will not know until the end of the current Premier League season what sort of plans Arsene Wenger has for the Arsenal squad in the transfer market, or even whether it will be the Frenchman in charge of things for the Gunners for that matter. A lot could depend on just how well the current Arsenal players can perform between now and mid May.
He could hardly give Arsenal a bigger come on unless he was pictured eating Arsenal themed chocolate in a red and white top while holding on to a picture of Arsene Wenger while having GTID tattooed onto his knuckles, but will that be enough to actually see Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing for Arsenal next season?
Ibrahimovich unlikely to join Arsenal while Wenger is here
Hello guys! So after Zlatan Ibrahimovic put Chelsea to the sword and once again displayed that he is one of the best strikers in Europe in addition to his comments, where he remained coy on his future, with his contract running out this summer, a lot of rumours have started about where he’d arrive and England looks like the destination.
There is only one man who really knows if things would have been different if Arsenal had refused to sell our striker Robin van Persie to Premier League rivals Man United or if the Dutch centre forward had not had such a storming first season at Old Trafford.
