Reports in France are claiming that Arsenal failed in an attempt to sign Blaise Matuidi this summer. The midfielder joined Juventus in a reported £27.8 Million deal from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, but is claimed to have rejected ‘advances’ from Arsenal, Manchester United and Man City.
Bookmakers have shortened the odds on Arsenal completing deals to sign a number of players as we look to make waves in the current transfer window.
The Gunners have already completed a club record deal to bring in Alexandre Lacazette this month, and are believed to be working hard to strengthen in other areas also.
Former Arsenal youth Fabrice Muamba has urge his former side to bring Blaise Matuidi to the Emirates this summer.
Muamba had his career ended prematurely after suffering cardiac arrest whilst on the football pitch during an FA Cup match between his then side Bolton and Tottenham Hotspur. It’s somewhat of a miracle that he survived the incident, and is now looking at returning to the game in a coaching aspect.
