Arsenal have had some real success in recent transfer windows by looking to Spain’s La Liga for new players. Although Arsene Wenger is still waiting to get value for money from the performances and consistency of the club record signing Mesut Ozil, you really cannot argue with the others.
With it looking likely that Arsenal are now in the market for a top striker that could score the mythical 25 goals a season for the Gunners, we are being linked with many outlandish names in the transfer market. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one for example, but it appears that Borussia Dortmund are not going to see a mass exodus from the club following the departure of Jurgen Klopp.
The fact that this La Liga defensive midfielder has a buyout clause at his club, Sevilla, means that there is little that can stand in the way of Arsenal being able to sign him in January, other than competition from other clubs. But with the amount of that clause being nearly £25 million, according to a Metro report, the name of Grzegorz Krychowiak might make you wonder why Arsenal would bother.
Deadline day finally arrives. And if the rumours are true then Arsenal are definitely trying to sign another striker to cover for Olivier Giroud while he is out injured. All Arsenal fans are hoping that the top Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao is our main target, but with a price of £55m and Real Madrid and Man City’s millions to compete with I doubt very much that he will be the one.
Arsenal miss out on Kondogbia by Ash
Arsenal’s summer spending spree hasn’t gone to plan at all for Arsene Wenger and his transfer team. Whichever way you see it, being the club lying to the fans in a plot to continue to sell season tickets and merchandise, or whether Arsenal have genuinely tried but been extremely unlucky, at the end of the day we still find ourselves under a week away from the closure of the summer transfer window with just one addition to our name.
Geoffrey Kondogbia isn’t available by AH
It’s well known to most that Arsenal are on the lookout for a defensive midfielder this summer, after being without a true player for this position ever since the glory days. Many have tried but most have failed, fortunately things look set to change, as Wenger seems to have lined up his options to fill the void in the near future.
Arsenal might try and sign Geoffrey Kondogbia by Kash
The Arsenal targets are coming thick and fast and now according to both Sky Sports and the Daily Mail, Arsenal have rekindled their interest in signing 20 year old Geoffrey Kondogbia.
I am sure that Arsenal are keeping track of the situation with Geoffrey Kondogbia, and he may be the reason why the Gunners have not pushed on for any of the defensive midfield targets so far. Real Madrid had been strong favourites to sign Kondogbia, but some reports in the Spanish media yesterday were very encouraging about the chances of Arsenal capturing the 20-year old French international.
