Unless you believe Arsene Wenger’s claims that Arsenal are not yet in transfer mode despite all the Arsenal transfer rumours linking us with players like Petr Cech, Jackson Martinez and many more, then you will be hoping that Wenger and his transfer team at the Emirates are already working hard and trying to get the transfer business of the summer done early.
According to a Metro report we may have already secured one of the most important signings, a top quality central midfielder, in the Southampton and France international star Morgan Schneiderlin.
The report claims that the fantastic Frenchman has chosen the Gunners as his next club, despite plenty of interest from other clubs in the Premier League and Europe. Whether Wenger will need to pay the Saints their full valuation of £25 million or not we do not know but the fact that Ronald Koeman knows his player wants to leave and where he wants to go should give Arsenal a decent bargaining position.
But if this report is correct, does that mean that the rumours regarding Arturo Vidal are not?
