The rumours regarding Arsenal’s possible moves for players around Europe are increasing now that everybody is waiting to see which players will be the most interesting at this summer’s European Championship.
The Gunners will be looking to improve their squad further after landing German striker Lukas Podolski, especially given the fact that Arsene Wenger has declared his interest in fighting for the league title next season.
As things look at the moment, Arsenal are very close to signing French striker Olivier Giroud. According to last week’s rumours Arsene Wenger has already sent an offer towards Montpellier.
Wenger will also be looking to land the French club’s attacking midfielder Younes Belhanda, but according to French officials the Morocco international isn’t up for grabs just yet.
Another one believed to be very close to signing for Arsenal is the Rennes’ defensive midfielder Yann M’Vila. The French international has also received an offer from Arsenal, but the deal might be off if the 21-year-old’s recent injury proves to be worse than it looks.
Arsenal seem to have missed out on the transfer of Ajax center-back Jan Vertonghen, who has admitted his interest in making the move to rivals Tottenham and is waiting for the two clubs to make a compromise on the price.
French international star Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has spoken about his interest to make the move away from his current club Montpellier, but it seems that like in Belhanda’s case, he isn’t easy to get because the club officials are loathe to lose their captain as well as their best two players.
Sao Paulo’s Lucas Moura isn’t up for grabs for Arsene Wenger anymore after Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid all grew an interest in the Brazilian attacking midfielder, which in turn lifted his transfer fee way out of Wenger’s reach. Now the Brazilian club have announced they don’t want him to move abroad until at least the winter transfer window.
According to this weeks rumours these are the most likely to be the new arrivals at Arsenal this summer. Which two of these would you make your priority?
