It will take a string of events to go the right way for Arsenal, but the amazing transfer of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid could actually be back on soon. I really hope it happens, because with Alexis Sanchez already signed, the arrival of the France international would surely give Arsenal the single most deadly strike force in the Premier League. And with our talented midfield and miserly defence, that would probably see us Gooners celebrating the Premier League title next May, if not a double.
One of the main reasons for Arsenal having any hope whatsoever of signing the Argentina international Angel Di Maria, who scored the only goal of the game against Switzerland last night to book his country’s place in the World Cup quarter-finals, is that the 26-year old winger does not feel he gets the credit and playing time he deserves at Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants have repeatedly spoke about how much they want him to stay, but it all sounds a bit forced and there is more transfer news from Spain today, reported by The Express, that makes Di Maria’s exit from the Champions League holders even more likely.
One of the latest Arsenal transfer rumours is about the rekindling of our interest in the Porto striker Jackson Martinez. The Gunners were linked with him last summer and in the January transfer window but it seemed that Arsene Wenger had moved on to other targets this summer.
This could be because the 27-year old did not enjoy quite as good a season with his Portuguese club as in his debut year, and also because of the well known fact that his release clause was around £35 million. Porto were adamant that they would not accept less as well, and for that money there may have been better options.
The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is starting to do exactly what he said he would do a few months back, and although the transfer window hasn’t basically started yet he’s constantly looking for excellent deals on the market.
Such a possibility has come around for Wenger, who has now taken an interest in one of Real Madrid’s renegade youngsters. 19-year-old Jese Rodriguez will be out of contract at the end of the season and according to Portuguese newspaper Record, the Gunners are willing to offer him a killer deal and get him to the Emirates.
