[Rumour Rater] Arsenal Transfer News, 12/08: Jadson and Bryan Ruiz
Written by James on August 12, 2011 4:45
A striker and yet another one to replace Cesc Fabregas in midfield are today’s players linked with a possible move to Arsenal.
According to Sky Sports, FC Twente’s Bryan Ruiz is a target for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal. The 25-year old is quoted as saying that “there is a team that is showing interest” with the Costa Rican apparently available for £7m.
In other news, ESPN believes that if captain Cesc Fabregas leaves this month to join Barcelona then Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Jadson could be the one to replace him. Whether this 27-year old with experience in Brazil and Ukraine is the answer to all our midfield problems is yet to be seen but for sure is that if the Catalan leaves then we desperately need to replace him.
And before moving on to today’s poll, a look at yesterday’s results in which we collected more than 1,500 votes and with both players, Shinji Kagawa and Danny Welbeck getting an interesting amount of positive votes from those who voted.
As always, please let us know your preference on today’s linked players and don’t be shy to join the discussion in our newly-launched Arsenal forum.
