It seems that Arsenal won’t be changing their wingers after all in the summer transfer window opening as top target dismisses any kind of transfer talk.
Napoli’s star winger Ezequiel Lavezzi has snubbed the possibility of a potential transfer after the newspapers went crazy linking him with a possible move to the Emirates Stadium this coming summer.
“My future? There is nothing to say. I am just thinking about Napoli and I am happy here. The fans are happy with me which is the most important thing.” declared the Argentinian international.
Wenger, who is expected to have a better than usual transfer campaign in the summer, has been following Lavezzi for quite some time now but he hasn’t yet decided himself to send an offer Napoli’s way. After the excellent performance the Napoli star had against Chelsea in the Champions League, both Arsenal and the Blues started paying much more attention to the Argentine international.
Unfortunately an offer has not yet been made official by Arsenal and the 26 year-old has now refused the idea to even think about leaving Napoli, especially having the prospect of knocking out Chelsea in the second leg of the Champions League tie in his sights.
Hopefully he will be more amenable to a move at the end of the season, and if he would indeed come to Arsenal the fans would already be in love with him just for the fact that he helped shatter Chelsea’s Champions League dreams.
Should Wenger go all out for Lavezzi this summer?
