It is no secret that Arsenal are looking to strengthen their midfield this summer with one, maybe two signings. On the Emirates wants list somewhere is likely to be the £15m-rated Lyon captain Maxime Gonalons.
Wenger has sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old on several occasions this season and Lyon have hinted that it take offers of over £15 million seriously.
Gonalons is a defensively minded midfielder and is another option for along side old boy Alex Sony and Etienne Capoue.
Meanwhile Laurent Koscielny is continuing to attract attention from Europe’s footballing elite. After a supposed inquiry from Barcelona, Goal is reporting that Bayern Munich are also interested in the French defender.
Apparently they are mulling over a £20 million bid, but but the good news for Arsenal fans is that the club is confident that he will stay.
Meanwhile Cesc Fabregas has spoken openly for the first time about a possible return to The Emirates. Quizzed about his life in Spain and a possible move back to London Cesc told Sky Sports.
“I do not know what is being said and even what is written. I can only say that I alone know my own future.”
Which hardly sounds like a resounding commitment to the Catalan club. This one is going to run all summer.
Finally the gossip over the future of QPR’s star player continues with three and in speculating that Arsenal may make a move for the Brazilian keeper Cesar, but they might find his wages too much to accommodate.
I guess you could say the same for several other Rangers players too.
