If a report by Skysports is to be believed, then Arsenal may be doing business with one of their main rivals next season, Jose Mourinho. According to skysports, Arsenal are keen on signing Daley Blind and according to their own rating, the Dutchman is rated 4.3 out of a possible 5.0 to join Arsenal this summer.
This particular rumour seems odd on the surface but looking at it critically, it seems like a transfer Wenger will make. Blind will be an upgrade on Kieran Gibbs who has been linked with a move away Arsenal with Leicester City, Southampton and West Ham said to be interested in the 26-year-old England international ( former? ).
Although with Jose Mourinho now at the realm of affairs at Old Trafford, it is unlikely to see such a transfer happening as the Portuguese hates Wenger and very unlikely to let Wenger sign the player but for Skysports, who are quite reliable I must say, to have rated the chance of Blind signing for us as high as 4.3 out of a possible 5.0, then it could mean they know something.
Blind had a good season under Louis Van Gaal last season but there are doubts that his style will fit in into Mourinho’s likely system.
