Arsenal are interested in signing Real Madrid and Spain international midfielder Xabi Alonso according to SportsDirectNews. Alonso is drawing close to the end of his Real Madrid contract and although it is believed Real Madrid are interested in offering him a new contract, the player is said to prefer a move away from the club. He is reported to have told his friends he will prefer to move to the premier league.
This has spurred Arsenal’s interest according to SportsDirectNews. Arsenal are said to be ready to spend as much as 15 million pounds on the 31 year old midfielder. Arsenal have so far been frustrated in the transfer market with no tangible movement made so far in the transfer market.
Wenger has only 3 days ago confirmed he is in the market for a new midfielder addition after seeing key players such as Camberbalin, Arteta, Diaby and lately Podolski runned out on the long term with various degrees of injuries.
