Here we are, the last day of the summer transfer window as we close this section of the blog with Eden Hazard and Florent Malouda.
According to Italian website Tutto Mercato Web (in Italian), Chelsea are ready to sell French midfielder Florent Malouda with Juventus and Arsenal both ready to make offers. With plenty of experience in the English Premier League, It seems that the Gunners are ready to offer €8m for the 31-year old and ready to meet his wage demands.
In other news, Metro believes that Joe Cole’s move from Liverpool to Lille could mean that Eden Hazard will join Arsenal for £26m. According to the article, the Gunners are yet to replace Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri with many believing that the Belgium International will be signed to fill the void although his club, Lille, keeps saying that the youngster is not for sale.
And before moving on to today’s poll, a look at yesterday’s poll in which we collected more than 2,000 and with our readers giving more than 1,000 positive votes to Marouane Fellaini and more than 600 to Leandro Damiao.
