Arsenal linked with a move for Valencia midfielder Carlos Soler.
Carlos Soler is on Arsenal’s radar ahead of the next transfer window as Mikel Arteta looks to mould his team in his image.
The Gunners have made serious improvement under the Spaniard since he was named their new manager, and the club is prepared to back him in the next transfer window.
Several players were linked with a move to Arsenal in the January transfer window, but the Gunners managed to sign just two defenders on loan until the end of the season.
Arteta still has an interest in signing RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and now Mirror Sport is claiming that he wants Carlos Soler as well.
Soler just signed a contract extension with Valencia late last year and his release clause has been increased to £140 million, claims the same report.
However, that hasn’t deterred Arsenal and his other suitors and the Gunners are confident that they would be able to strike a deal for significantly less than that amount with Los Che should they decide to make a move for him.
Atletico Madrid is also interested in the player but Diego Simeone’s side may struggle to match Arsenal’s offer unless they sell one of their top players due to FFP.
Arsenal is also bracing for a busy summer, the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette may ask for a move away and that would help them raise funds for making new signings.
For sure there will be a goodly number of in and out players this summer and not before time. I have total confidence in Arteta who is shaping up, the way he has started these last two months or so, to be a manager that none of us could have ever expected to be so superb. IN MY VIEW HE HAS NOT PUT A FOOT WRONG. We would do well to properly recognise- though a numer simply have not the nous to do so- that in Arteta we have a real diamond and despite the ongoing handicap of Kroenke I, for just one, feel a real surge of hope for MUCH better times is just around the corner.
Yeah Jon – I totally agree that we might just have got ourselves a diamond in Arteta.But I wonder if your lavish praise for him is to camouflage the ridiculousness for your comments of Emery after our mauling at Anfield earlier this season. If I recall it went along the lines of “I now have no doubt whatsoever that we have the right Manager on Emery”. You obviously will remember it word for word and I’m sure one of the Admins will did it out if you need reminding. It was immediately after we were taken apart, yet again, by Liverpool, with the wrong team selected playing in a formation that allowed Liverpool to Rear us apart.
Funny how your opinion has changed so quickly don’t you think. So, when writing your theatre reviews, do you also change your mind if others publish something different t yours? Just curious.
Everyone has a right to change their opinion when the situation changes.
For Arsenal’s performance to improve results wise and for and the Club to compete at the level Arsenal should be at, Arteta must be supported in the transfer market to bring in the type of players he wants.
Notwithstanding the money spent, this was not afforded to Emery in defense and midfield in the summer transfer window and combined with injuries, the performances suffered.
