After a flurry of activity it seems to have gone a bit quiet on the Marouane Fellaini to Arsenal front. Goal has a theory why. It says that…
The north Londoners are now waiting for Everton to make the Belgium international available for talks in order to begin negotiating terms.
Even if Fellaini agrees a package with Arsenal, the club are in no rush to complete the signing, as most of their key staff, including the medical team, are now on holiday and will not return to the club until the end of June.
It all sounds incredibly laid back. No worries about ex boss David Moyes sneaking in with an offer then, apparently.
Arsenal were also being made to wait by midfield target Olympique Lyonnais midfielder Clement Grenier. The player, who Wenger recently likened to Nasri says he will contemplate his next move when he returns from his holiday.
“I’m training here in Uruguay and Brazil,” Grenier told the Daily Express.
“It feels good to be far from France right now because I’ve heard a lot of things about me lately.
“I can’t give answers to everybody. I want to enjoy these 10 days of training. We will see about my future after the internationals, during my vacation.”
I wonder what the odds are on Arsenal not have made a significant signing by the end of the month?
