Arsenal pursuing the signing of two players hints former Gunner

Former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos has hinted that Arsenal is pursuing a deal for two defenders.

The Swiss defender was one of Arsenal’s centre backs under Arsene Wenger, but he never managed to leave a wonderful impression on those who watched him play for the Gunners.

However, he has become one of Arsenal’s former players who has had a say in the club’s summer transfer business.

According to a respected journalist, Nicolo Schira, the Swiss defender claims that Arsenal is working on deals for Kalidou Koulibaly and Samuel Umtiti.

He then added that he would be happy if Arsenal ends up signing either player.

“At Arsenal the best years of my career: victory of the FA Cup and 10 games without taking goals in Champions League,” Senderos is quoted as saying by Shira.

“The Gunners need a great defender to get back on the top of the world: I know they’re interested in Koulibaly and Umtiti. I’d take one of these two.”

Koulibaly and Umtiti are highly sought-after this summer and it would take a lot of money and a place in Europe before Arsenal can land either of them.

Reports have also linked the Gunners with a move for the likes of Chris Smalling and Dejan Lovren, both of whom would be less expensive.

  1. Can someone explain to me how Senderos would know that Arsenal on working on deals to sign these 2 players. Why would whoever is in charge of doing the negotiations for players tell Senderos anything. In my opinion the chances of these 2 players coming to us are zero.
    If they did happen to I will hold my hands up and say I was wrong.

  2. He only knows because he read it somewhere.
    Interesting just how many former players from all clubs are popping up with what is presented as some form of ‘inside information’.
    Nature abhors a vacuum – so nonentities rush to fill it with their vacuous comments.
