The rumour mill is getting up to full speed as the end of the Premier League season draws closer and as usual, there are plenty of Arsenal transfer rumours to pick through. We know that most of them will come to nothing of course, or Arsenal would end up with a squad of over 100 players.
One rumour that caught my eye this weekend, reported by The Mirror, suggested that Arsene Wenger has been keeping a close eye on the England under 20 international Rolando Aarons who joined the Newcastle United youth team after spending a few years with Bristol City.
The Jamaican born winger has been compared to Liverpool´s Raheem Sterling due to his electric pace and style of play and with just a year left on his contract and with talks over a new deal on hold, the possibility of the Arsenal boss making a move this summer has apparently increased.
But I have to wonder why Wenger would go for a relatively untested young player dubbed the new Sterling when he could go for the real deal. With Sterling apparently stalling on a new deal under Brendan Rodgers and with Liverpool looking like they will miss out on the Champions League places, Arsenal could have a good chance of getting Sterling himself.
We have had enough years of Wenger looking for hidden gems and if the Gunners are to mount a serious title challenge next season we need players who are already producing, not players with potential that may or may not be realised. Do you agree Gooners?
