Transfer speculation works both ways, it can be exciting if the latest rumours have a top class talent coming to Arsenal and it can be distressing if the gossip is about our best players leaving.
Well, according to Guillem Balague, known for his inside knowledge of the intricacies of Spanish football we can rest easy, neither player is going to La Liga this summer.
When asked if either player would be signing for one of the Spanish giants he responded on his YouTube channel
“Neither of them is seriously wanted by either club.
“They are both top players of course, but they aren’t chasing either of them.
“So Arsenal will have their top strikers for another season at least.”
Now, Balague does making some outlandish claims on occasions and anyone checking out his Twitter account will see how he is regularly mocked, however, when it comes to rumours and gossip I tend to find that he is fairly accurate. He does have sources within each club and I am inclined to believe him.
Both players are in line for new contracts with us and both appear to be very content at the Emirates, they have forged an excellent partnership and for me, what we are reading about them appears to be nothing more than the media stirring things up.
That said, if we fail to qualify for next seasons Champions League via the Europa League then things could very easily change, players are very ambitious and missing out on Europe’s elite competition could have an effect that we are unable to know right now.
