FULL Arsenal transfer rumour news GREAT for Gooners

Arsenal fans are well used to Arsene Wenger pulling a fast one on us during a transfer window. Usually the Frenchman keeps us hoping and says he is looking for players before not making any transfers and saying that he just couldn’t find any.

This time though, the boss has been saying that he is unlikely to anything more than the Elneny signing, but all of a sudden the last week of the window seems to have gone a bit mad, rumour-wise. According to The Mirror we could be about to finally sign the Spanish striker Alvaro Morata with a huge bid to Juventus. The report also claims that we have had an initial bid rejected by Napoli for their midfield star Jorginho but could return with another.

Transfer bid proves Arsenal are serious about striker transfer

So far during the January window there have been a number of Arsenal transfer rumours and most of them have linked the club with either a midfielder or a forward. Arsene Wenger has already admitted that Arsenal are hoping to sign the Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Elneny from Basel but he has been pretty evasive about his plans for a striker.

But if the Evening Standard report is right then the Frenchman is about to show his cards by making a transfer offer of £13.4 million for the Celta Vigo and Spain striker Nolito. This would not be a speculative or opening offer either, because it is the amount of the release clause in the player’s contract.

Arsenal close in on STUNNING Spanish striker transfer

If Arsenal do try to complete the transfer of this talented and prolific striker in the January transfer window, but are beaten to it by one of the other big clubs said to be keen, such as La Liga and Champions Leagie holders Barcelona, then Arsenal fans will not have a lot to complain about.

But if Arsene Wenger comes out with the tired old phrase about there not being any players available and that he is working 24 hours a day in vain to find anyone, then we will be perfectly within our rights to have a good old moan and break out the ‘spend some f**ckin money’ banners.
