Despite airing my frustrations about our lack of signings in my previous article, there are still a heck of a lot of speculation surrounding players who could be joining or leaving Arsenal.
Now while I`m of the ilk who never believes any rumour till I see a player holding an Arsenal shirt, or another team's scarf, I still feel it`s necessary to bring you the rumours to discuss them all in one place.
So let`s start with the hot topic of the much needed centre back, The Telegraph tells us that Wenger is closing in on Bolton`s Gary Cahill in an attempt to bolster our very shaky defensive line (especially at set pieces don`t you know!). Cahill is a great player, however his nationality will mean spending more than he`s worth, but like I said, we shouldn't be bothered too much about prices this summer, identify our top targets then go out and get them …. Within reason of course.
Next up is the Gervinho saga (it really wouldn't be an Arsenal summer without a long running transfer saga would it?), sources now saying that the Lille forward should be signing on the dotted line any day now.
Another topic never too far away from the lips of Arsenal fans is that of the goalkeeping position, well flimsy sources link us with a move for Inter Milan`s Emiliano Viviano .
Real Madrid apparently lodged a massive £45 Million bid for Captain Cesc. If we`re serious about selling Fabregas, and I think we might be, then even though we know Fabregas has no intention of joining Real Madrid, we should accept the offer to show Barcelona we`re willing to deal at the right price. I don`t think agreeing a the fee with Real would effect any relationships between club, player or fans. We know he wants to leave, he knows he wants Barca, he knows we want a fair price.
That about wraps up the transfer guff for today.
