Arsenal Prepare Move for €18m Rated Argentine Star
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is set to step up his pursuit of Lazio’s versatile Mauro Zarate after the latest comments coming out about the players future at the club, according to reports on Sky Sports.
During the course of the summer transfer window Zarate has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including, Tottenham and Chelsea.
Nasri Man City deal still alive
Samir Nasri’s £23m move to Manchester City is still alive – despite a hold-up that saw him play in Arsenal’s home defeat against Liverpool on Saturday.
Nasri’s surprise appearance came as reports in France claimed the transfer had broken down and the midfielder was now set to stay at Emirates Stadium for the rest of the season.
It is believed the framework of a deal is in place between City and Arsenal as well as Nasri but financial details remain to be ironed out before the switch can be finalised.
Why £26m would be a bargain for this Arsenal target
According to sources in France, Lille have slapped a £26 million price tag on Arsenal target Eden Hazard– great news!
The 20-year-old winger has been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for quite some time now and having lost Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona a few days ago and Samir Nasri looking increasingly likely to depart for Man City – surely Wenger will step up his interest for the talented Belgian within the next 14 days?
Bremen slap £9m price tag on Arsenal target Mertesacker as Wenger’s search continues
Werder Bremen have placed an £8.7million price tag on Arsenal target Per Mertesacker, as Arsene Wenger continues his quest for a centre half.
The Bundesliga side need to raise funds and would sell the 26-year old Germany centre-back.
Wenger is also considering Birmingham’s Scott Dann and has not yet given up on Everton’s Phil Jagielka despite the 28-year-old wanting to stay at Everton.
