It has been quite noticeable over the last week that there has not been much transfer speculation involving Arsenal, there has been some of course, but a few weeks back we were getting 2-3 pieces per day but it has really dried up recently, however, there has been a few over the last 24 hours which is a welcome distraction from the actual football.
According to Talksport, we are interested in a player they term an Aston Villa flop, Jordan Veretout, who is currently plying his trade with Fiorentina.
I think it is a bit harsh to brand him a flop because of a bad experience with the Villains, he is a versatile midfielder that is doing a good job for his Italian side.
The next piece of gossip centres on Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico, who according to the Mirror thinks it is a good time to move to the Premier League. We have been constantly linked with the Argentine so I suppose that is a bit of a boost to our hopes of signing the 26-year-old.
Finally, there is Thomas Partey, another player that we have been consistently linked with over the last few months and according to the Star, citing Cadena COPE, he is set to remain in Spain with Atletico Madrid.
So, nothing concrete, nothing to get over excited about but at least we are being mentioned with these sort of players and in the case of Tagliafico there is at least something positive to lift our spirits. I quite liked the look of Partey to be honest so that’s a shame, but I am feeling quietly confident about Tagliafico.
Do you think he would be a good addition?
