It is becoming a little difficult to work out what sort of player Arsenal are actually prioritising. But according to rumour after rumour, a good guess would be a winger.
Most observers believe it is a central defender that should be targeted but the major speculation just does not lean towards that.
Kieran Tierney is a left back, William Saliba is a central defender but he will not be playing for us next season even if we agree a deal and Wilfried Zaha is a winger.
They are the three main targets it seems but there are some rumours that you could categorise as on the fringes, in better words, rumours that sound sort of credible.
Well, Barcelona winger Malcom would definitely fit into the fringe rumour category and according to the latest reports, Arsenal have held talks with his representatives and he is now a priority signing.
There are, however, a number of problems with signing the Brazilian.
First, he is valued at £50 Million, that alone should put an end to the speculation but it has apaprently not.
Secondly, he wants £200,000 per week, a salary Arsenal is unlikely to agree to anymore.
It makes sense that Barca will be selling Malcom, he is hardly a first teamer and they have spent huge money this summer and need to balance the books.
To be honest, I just cannot get my head around this one, it is as frustrating as hell not being able to understand Unai Emery’s and Arsenal’s thinking on why they continuolsy persist in trying to sign a player in almost every position except the two, central defender and box to box midfielder, that we desperatly need strengthening.
