Arsene Wenger seems to be making true his words that Arsenal’s own transfer window is now just opening. The French man was quoted as saying :
“The transfer market really starts now, a lot of activity will happen between now and 2 September. We have 12 days. A lot will happen. It starts now.”
“Quality wise we do not need, but numbers wise we are short. We lost Arteta and Diaby. We are without three international midfielders. We will try and bring one in but we are working on that. What you have to understand is that there is still a long way to go.”
And to make true his words, the news broke that Arsenal are negotiating with Real Madrid on the potential signing of Benzema and Di Maria. Telegraph reported yesterday that Arsenal are very keen on the Madrid pair and have commenced negotiation and to make it even more interesting, BBC’s David Ornstein tweeted the following on twitter yesterday :
“Arsenal working on deals for Real Madrid duo Benzema & Di Maria. Also pursuing GK & defender, could spend £100m”
He also reported Arsenal have made contacts with PSG in regards to Sakho who is available on the market after declaring he will like to move away from PSG.
