We’ve still got a fair bit of time to go before the transfer window opens again but there are always all sorts of mental transfer rumours/stories floating around.
Today’s, is that Arsenal want to sign Swansea City midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng in the summer transfer window.
Reports in Italy, namely from Corriere Dello Sport say that Arsene Wenger and Sven Mislintat are keen on the former Celtic man, who will be available on a free in June as his contract with the Swans expires.
The South Korea skipper has been a key player since signing in 2012 and it’s thought that the Rossoneri feel he is a worthwhile addition to their midfield options and have been watching him ever since his loan spell with Sunderland in 2013/14.
This season, the 29-year old has made 16 appearances in the Premier League for the Swans, scoring once. In the January transfer window, he was heavily courted by West Ham and rumoured to be part of the move that saw Andre Ayew return to South Wales.
However, he elected to remain at the Liberty Stadium and stay onboard for Carlos Carvalhal’s survival mission.
At the time, he was quoted as saying the following by the BBC:
“If Swansea want me to stay, I want to stay in the team so I can help stay in the Premier League. That’s my target and my decision.
“It’s difficult [for me to leave], I don’t think so. I don’t think that’s going to happen.
“I don’t need to move because I don’t think West Ham is better than us and also we are fighting relegation with West Ham as well. I want to play with my team-mates.”
Is Ki good enough to play for us? I fucking don’t think. If you think so or otherwise, let us know your thoughts below:
