The media is going a little crazy today with updates on both Mesut Ozil and William Saliba.
Let’s start with Ozil. According to The Mirror, Fenerbahce are able to pay as much as £8 Million of the annual salary the German earns with Arsenal picking up the remaining £5.5 Million.
The English tabloid is citing reports out of Turkey sourced from Fanatik
Now, William Saliba.
The Evening standard claims a deal is very close and not only will Arsenal sign the 18-year-old but will also be able to keep the vast majority of their transfer budget intact.
The reason is simple, Arsenal will only need to put down a small initial fee due to the player remaining in France for one more year with the remainder paid next year.
Now, none of the media outlets claims a deal is actually done but it does seem that some momentum is growing and while it is always best to take these rumours with a pinch of salt I do get the feeling that something is in the air.
To be honest I am not sure which one is more likely because both come with issues but as things stand right now you have to think that the majority of Arsenal fans will be pleased with the latest updates.
