Arsene Wenger has said before that he likes to leave things late in the transfer window in order to get the best deals. Well it seems he is going to go to the wire on the man who could be Arsenal’s number one winter target – David Villa.
Although Barcelona have stated that he is not for sale the player has re-ignited Arsenal’s interest after apparently pushing his club for an exit and favouring a move to London.
In typical Wenger style it appears that the club will wait until the last 48 hours of the window before making their move.
The Sun reports that
The Gunners will not pay £15m for a player of Villa’s age but they are desperate to land a striker and would pay £10m.
I think most Arsenal fans would agree that Villa’s deadly accuracy in front of goal and his ability to turn a half chance into a goal scoring opportunity are exactly what the North Londoners need at the moment.
This one is going to go to the wire.
