So for the second year in a row Arsenal are going to have a representative in the Copa America Final, but will it be our attacking genius Alexis Sanchez again, or will it be the rock-between-the-sticks David Ospina?
There are some more interesting Arsenal rumours emerging that the Gunners are close to sealing a one year loan deal for the Chilean international Eduardo Vargas from Napoli. Vargas and our very own Alexis Sanchez made an impressive pairing at the World Cup, and perhaps Wenger thinks they could perform just as well for Arsenal.
Arsenal are definitely in the market for a new striker this January, and Arsene Wenger is known to like a bargain, but the Chilean international, Eduardo Vargas, will hardly set Arsenal fan’s pulses racing if he is the man who comes to the Emirates to boost our goal threat. THe 23-year old has not had the impact expected since he signed for Napoli a year ago. The Serie A side have offered to loan him to the Gunners in an attempt to get his form and career back on track, but do we really want that sort of player?
Most Arsenal fans find it very difficult to believe that Arsene Wenger is about to almost double his record transfer fee with a £30 million bid for the Uruguayan striker, Edinson Cavani, from Napoli, especially when you hear that the player signed a new five year contract with the Italian club this summer, and the price is likely to be closer to £40 million.
It is being reported that Fiorentina are ready to cash in on Arsenal and Liverpool target Juan Manuel Vargas in the January transfer window.
Of course with no football on during the InterLull, so its time for the press to create some Arsenal transfer news to keep the fans interested in reading! And so today’s Arsenal rumours roundup comes exclusively from talkSport, who seem to have a fixation on the Gunners today.
It will be interesting to see how much effect the African Cup of Nations has on the Premiership in January, but Arsenal are certain to lose Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh from their attacking options.
With this in mind, todays Metro reports that Arsenal intend to return to Fiorentina with a £12m bid for the Peruvian left-sided player Juan Manuel Vargas.
