If you believe reports coming from France, Arsenal will be finalizing in the next few hours a deal that will see Arsenal’s flog Park going to Saint Etienne in a deal that will see Saint Etienne’s midfielder Joshua Guilavogui joining Arsenal.
The reports are claiming Arsenal have been on the trail of the high rated midfielder for several months and are ready to spend 8.5 million pounds and Park in order to acquire the service of the player.
Wenger had only few days ago confirmed he is in the market for a new midfielder after seeing key players such as Oxlade Chamberblain, Arteta, Diaby and Podolski coup various degrees of injuries. Bids ( 2 ) for Yohan Cabaye of Newcastle were rejected with Wenger unwilling to meet Newcastle United’s asking price for the French man. They have also had bids turned down for Bayern Leverkusen’s Lars Bender.
Arsenal have so far been frustrated in the transfer market with the two players the gunners have signed so far been Yaya Sanogo from French second division club Auxerre and unattached former Arsenal player Mathieu Flamini both on a free transfer.
