Bad News : Arsenal Set To Lose Another Target To Italian Club

Julio Cesar

Arsenal’s transfer woes look to continue as they face losing out on yet another target in Julio Cesar, according to Footballfancast. The Gunners have been tracking the QPR ‘keeper all summer but have failed to secure his signature so far.

Cesar has made it clear he wants to leave the Hoops following their relegation from the Premier League and Arsenal were made favourites to sign him. Cesar’s love of London and Arsenal’s apparent interest in a goalkeeper were the main talking points and despite QPR’s low asking price of £1.5 million, Arsene Wenger is still yet to lodge an official bid.

The Brazilian was thought to be close to a move back to Italy with Napoli before Rafa Benitez opted for Liverpool goalie Pepe Reina instead. The Gunners were put back in pole position for Cesar but failed to proceed with a bid or negotiations and it now appears that Fiorentina have overtaken the Gunners in the race for the former Inter Milan shot-stopper.

The Viola have had a reported £2.5 million offer accepted by QPR, who beat Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day of the Championship without Cesar, with discussion expected to take place later this week.

Wenger has struggled in this summer’s transfer window with their first major target Gonzalo Higuain joining Napoli while they are currently struggling in their pursuit of Luis Suarez. Other rumoured targets are Wayne Rooney, Cesc Fabregas and Marouane Fellaini but none have made significant steps towards a move to Arsenal.

Cesar looks set to be another name on that list as he edges closer to a move back to Italy leaving Wenger once again frustrated at missing out on one of his priority targets.

  1. Mr Wenger is insensitive to the needs of Arsenal Footbal Club. He does not care about the feelings of the fans who are goin thru torture as Man U. Chelsea and Totnam reinforce their squads. This are Arsenals top rivals. Arsenal managed to make top 4 with the skin of their teeth last season on the last day causing their fans spasms. The question is does Wenger want to win anything? We thought the issue was lack of money but now we don’t know. I think its time for Arsenal fans to shift base.

  2. ARSENE,YOU MUST BE ONE OF THE DUMBEST MANAGERS IN FOOTBALL,YOU SAY YOU HAVE BEEN CHASING JULIO CESAR SINCE THE WINDOW OPENED,THATS OVER A MONTH AGO,CESAR OPENLY ADMITS HE WOULD LOVE TO COME TO ARSENAL,HE’S ONE OF THE BEST KEEPERS IN WORLD FOOTBALL,AND GOING FOR A GIVE AWAY PRICE,AND NOW WE FIND OUT YOU HAVEN’T EVEN MADE A BID FOR HIM,WHY DON’T YOU START EARNING YOUR £7.5 MILLION WAGE+PERKS. “ARSENE PLONKER OUT THE SOONER THE BETTER”.
