Arsenal transfer news – Capoue and Belhanda

Arsene Wenger is faced with quite a balancing act as he looks for new players to bring into the Arsenal team. Let’s not worry for now whether the Frenchman will change his ways and start spending money. I assume he is well aware that the Arsenal fans are expecting some big name signings and will not be content with a few unheard of youngsters.

The top players, however, will have other big clubs after them, as we have already seen with Juventus, Higuain and Jovetic. These players will be thinking about big wages and trophies, so might see Arsenal as a risk. The players who want to come to Arsenal may not be the quality that Wernger is looking for, so we need to find a balance.

Capoue is Arsenal’s main target as Mario Gotze rules himself out

Although there is still some time before the end of the season, there are lots of Arsenal transfer rumours in the papers lately. The Daily Express is claiming that Arsene Wenger tried hard to buy Etienne Capoue from Toulouse in January and believes that the French club will allow the defensive midfielder to finally move to the Emirates this summer.

Arsenal are definitely in need of a hard man in the middle and Capoue would certainly fit the bill for most Arsenal fans, but one player that EVERY Gooner would like to see at the Emirates is the German youngster Mario Gotze. But the Dortmund man has announced that he has no interest in joining Arsenal as he has bigger clubs in mind if he left Dortmund.
