Possible Arsenal Transfers During This Summer
As the World Cup progresses, there are also ongoing talks regarding possible transfers when the English Premier League 2018 football season starts. In fact, our club have started to buy and sell players early. The first confirmation was Jack Wilshere leaving Arsenal, as his contract with the club expires this month. He further confirmed the news on social media that his tenure with the club is finally over.
Further details about the said release claim that Wilshere had attempted to renew his contract but declined the offer which would have reduced his weekly salary to £90,000 per week. It was further stated that the veteran midfielder may find himself spending more time on the bench due to his lengthy record with injuries. Wilshere argued however that he is fit and healthy and needs more playing time on the field.
Nevertheless, the future appears to be bright for Wilshere as he is set to sign a contract with a new team. Some of the possible clubs that will take on Wilshere are Premier League clubs Fulham, Wolves, and Everton. In addition to this, there are also rumours that he is set to confirm a switch to Fenerbahce in Turkey.
Arsenal seems to be moving on whilst looking to fill the team with new players said to be transferring from other leagues. Arsenal are apparently trying to lure South Korean and Tottenham forward Son Heung-Min into the league, following his stellar performance in the recent World Cup game against Germany.
The 25-year old from Korea has also gained possible interest from Manchester United and Liverpool but none is more determined to get his services than Arsenal. However, if they are to get Son’s services for the team, Arsenal might be ready to pay a whopping £62m.
Another player that Arsenal are trying to sign is Russian player Aleksandr Golovin. His performance in the World Cup has also garnered interest from Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea. Unfortunately, none of these clubs appears to have been successful, as the player appears to be set to play for Juventus.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery is also looking to rejuvenate the team with younger players. He has been looking at the Spanish leagues this year and was confirmed to have singled out 22-year old Dominican Junior Firpo. While Firpo comes with a £22m release clause, Arsenal seems to be unfazed by it.
The Real Betis player can play as a left-side fullback or left-side midfielder. If the contract pushes through, Firpo is slated to replace Nacho Monreal whose contact with the team ends next season.
Another potential transfer to Arsenal is the Mexican player Hector Herrera who has also shown outstanding performance in the ongoing 2018 World Cup.
It will be an exciting season for the English Premier League, as it appears that new players are set to become part of the North London club. Some of these potential transfers are yet to be set in stone and fans are eager to find out soon who the new players will be.
