We are 17 days from our FA Cup final against Aston Villa, which will be the end of Arsenal’s season. Our rivals have already started spending their massive summer budgets so it is imperative that the Gunners work hard to improve our squad as well. Here is the latest selection of Arsenal’s rumours from the papers for your entertainment!.
Apparently Wenger is claimed to have made Petr Cech his priority signing this summer, and is said to given the green light to launch a £10 Million bid, while Spanish website Fichajes have claimed that we have lodged an offer for Iker Casillas. It was less than two weeks ago however, that Arsene praised his current goalkeeping options, claiming Ospina is top of the stats this term. Cech would no doubt be a great addition to our squad, but I just cant see either of these happening to be honest….
Raheem Sterling has been reported to have started house hunting in London, leading to speculation surrounding a move to both us or Chelsea. The winger is widely considered to be the biggest talent in the UK at present, and we would no doubt welcome him with open arms. Liverpool are adamant that they will force him to stay for next season on his lowly £35,000 per week wage however, and this saga is likely to run on all summer…
Now I know I mentioned Paul Pogba in my previous round-up, after he was reported to have handed in a transfer request, but Spanish journalist Kike Marin, who has broken stories on our club previously, has confirmed our interest in the superstar. I think I’m probably more hopeful than anything else, but he would be an amazing capture, and his star quality could be just what is needed to secure out first Premier League title since 2004….
Go on Wenger, go get Pogba!
