South Korea’s captain, aged 26 as well as a Manchester City winger are today’s players linked with a possible move to Arsenal.
According to BBC, so a very reliable source, the Gunners are close to secure the services of Monaco’s 26-year old striker Park Chu-young. It seems that the South Korean was very close to signing for France Champions Lille but president Michel Seydoux revealed that the player could be in London to sign for Arsenal with the French side clearly not happy with Arsenal this summer after they lost Gervinho earlier this summer.
In other news, Sports Vibes believes that a £14m offer will be made for Manchester City’s Adam Johnson, next week. The Gunners sold Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri to City this summer and with the former Middlesbrough, apparently, no longer in Roberto Mancini’s plans.
And before moving on to today’s poll, a look at Friday’s poll in which we collected more 4,000 votes and with our readers giving very high votes to both Bastian Schweinsteiger and Leighton Baines even if the former could be cup-tied for the Champions League.
