For Every Arsenal fan, this transfer window would go down as one of the most turuous in recent time – this follows from Arsene Wenger’s frugality that has seen just a senior player added to the rank of the club.
Wenger admitted that he would add to his attack and defense but the French tactician has hitherto failed to match his word with action in the window. This is really frustrating i must say because the team as it is, might not be able to compete with her rivals.
There were several reports earlier this week. Mustafi and Mahrez lead but Arsenal are yet to sign any of their targets. We take a swipe of Arsenal’s transfer news.
Arsenal have increased their bid for Riyad Mahrez to €41million (£35million), according to L’Equipe
The Gunners were reportedly set to end their interest in the Leicester playmaker, who looked set to remain at the King Power Stadium for another season.
But Mahrez is allegedly still wanted by Arsenal and they are said to have upped their offer.
Arsenal could bid for Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal, according to Goal
The Gunners are reportedly keen on the wide man, who has also been attracting interest from West Ham and Everton.
But the 24-year-old has allegedly been the subject of a rejecting €10million bid from the Toffees in recent weeks.
According to reports, Arsenal have made enquiries about the availability of France international and Barcelona defender Jeremy Mathieu.
The injuries to Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker means Arsenal are without a first team centre back at the moment.
Although, Arsenal are close to completing a deal for Mustafi, Wenger is keen on add more legs to his shabby defense.
Arsenal are close to sealing a deal for their long-term target Shkodran Mustafi – Wenger wants the deal done before the game against Liverpool but apparently, the player will not be ready for Arsenal’s opener.
Mustafi has been in the transfer radar of Arsenal but it appeared we were initially not interested in the tough tackler as a report claimed we did not table any offer for him. Nonetheless, the injury to Gabriel Paulista meant Arsenal are condemn to go all out for the player.
