Well it is all going on in Spain. After plundering the country for Fabregas, Cazorla, Monreal, and in a roundabout way Arteta, Arsene Wenger is rumoured to be injecting some more La Liga blood into his Arsenal team.
The latest in the Higuain saga has been documented elsewhere with one Italian paper even picturing him wearing an Arsenal shirt. Might he be the first big Arsenal transfer announcement of the summer?
Or maybe that might be Levante’s Ruben Garcia? According to the Spanish daily Marca, Arsenal have made an enquiry regarding the player who has already admitted that he wouldn’t be averse to a move to North London.
The 19 year old is coming off the back of a great season in La Liga, but with Yaya Sanogo seemingly a cert to arrive at the Emirates might two young strikers be pushing it? He could cost up to 10m million Euros too. And besides there’s also Joel Campbell too.
The Daily Mail is suggesting that Arsene Wenger is also mulling over a move for Real Sociedad’s defensive midfielder Asier Illarramendi. The paper does say though that Arsenal might find themselves facing some serious comeptiion to secure the services of the 23 year-old with Barcelona and Real Madrid also set to pounce.
Illarramendi is currently on duty at the Under-21 European Championships, where a good performance could hike his price up a few more million.
