The closer we are to the January transfer window, the more players that seem to be linked with a move to the Emirates. This is expected anyway.
Former Ivory Coast international and out-of-favour Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is out of contract in 2017 and a number of clubs are reportedly interested in the midfielder including Arsenal.
Since the appointment of Pep Guardiola at the helms for Manchester City, Yaya Toure has not been featured in any game than Champions League qualification, in which he has wasn’t registered, and him and his agent are at loggerhead with Pep Guardiola.
According to reports, he is expected to leave the club in the January of 2017. Calciomercato claims Arsenal, Manchester United, Inter Milan, Juventus and a host of Chinese clubs have queued for his signature.
You could argue that at Arsenal, we have the best cluster of midfielders and so we have a great balance. Hence, I don’t think we need a 33-year-old Yaya Toure.
Plus, Toure’s wage demands. He earns a reported £220,000 a week at City and let’s not beat about the bush here: Arsenal will not pay that.
