Everyone single Arsenal fan and his grandmother knows that the Gunners have desperately needed a young, strong defensive midfielder to improve an already promising Arsenal squad, so when we hear that a 21 year-old FRENCH midfielder of the quality of Paul Pogba is available then surely Arsene Wenger must sit up and take notice?
Pogba has recently signed a new contract at Juventus, but nowadays that just means that the price will go up if the player really wants to leave. So it will take an offer of at least £40m to prise the 21-year-old away from Serie A.
But, according to the Express, Arsenal are willing to finally try competing with the Manchester City’s and Chelsea’s of this world and try and persuade Pogba to come to the Emirates.
From the Express:
However, Arsenal will also enter the race to land the former Manchester United youngster if there is any indication he could leave Serie A.
Arsene Wenger is thought to be a huge admirer of his compatriot and Pogba is exactly the sort of player the tactician wants to target with the Gunners’ new spending power.
We all know by now that Arsenal are making so much money now that they can afford to pay up to £42m to get a truly World Class player if they become available, but whether he can persuade Pogba that he is more likely to win trophies with a move to Arsenal is another thing altogether…
