Some interesting transfer gossip today involving Arsenal and one, in particular, looks really juicy if it comes to fruition that is.
Let’s kick off with the juicy one, which is the claim made by Sport24 that we are one of a long list of clubs interested in signing Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech this summer. I watched him against Juventus and he is one hell of a talent and no doubt there will be a battle royale to land him. He will apparently cost £43 Million.
Mainz defender Jean-Philippe Gbamin is reportedly wanted by us with a fee of £35 Million mentioned claims Bild. Gbamin has impressed in an average Bundesliga side and has attracted interest from a number of English clubs
Then there is Brazilian teenager Ramires, who we have been monitoring consistently for over a year now, according to TalkSport. Flamengo is said to be favourites to sign the 18-year-old, however, the fact we are sending scouts to watch him means we have not given up on him yet.
It seems that we are now the favourites to sign Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti, according to tuttomercatoweb. Manchester United and Roma are also keen but we are now seen as the frontrunners, though it should be noted that Barcelona chief Josep Bartemu appears to be standing firm in his refusal to sanction a sale.
Finally, Denis Saurez could be on his way to Napoli in the summer and is set to snub a permanent move to us, claims the Sun. The 25-year-old has been unable to show us what he is capable of because of a persistent groin injury and a parting of ways does look very likely.
That is it for now and out of all those rumours I must admit the one linking us with Ajax star Hakim Ziyech is the one that has got me the most excited, he really is a top class individual and would fit in perfectly at the Emirates.
