It feels as if Arsenal could be one of the more dramatic late movers in the transfer market as the final few hours of the window tick by.
Speculation about Arsenal transfers is now rife with four stars topping the menu:
TELLO – this one hardly had time to be ON before it has reportedly gone OFF. The Daily Mail reports that Barcelona don’t want to do business in this window.
Barcelona are unlikely to allow Cristian Tello to move on loan to Arsenal for the rest of the season – meaning Arsene Wenger will have to look elsewhere to supplement his squad in the next 24 hours.
The same report says that Arsenal will now redouble their efforts to bring in Mirko Vucinic, the unsettled Juventus striker, and Alvaro Morata, the brilliant young Real Madrid hit man – yes, that old chestnut.
He is now expected to return to earlier loan targets, Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Juventus’ Mirko Vucinic.
Then there is the Draxler deal which is seemingly still rumbling on. We think that Morata and Vucinic should be the priorities for Arsenal right now. They could do with the former’s experience and Morata looks like an excellent prospect.
We feel that there is a lot left in the story of Arsenal’s transfer window but we would be surprised, at this stage, if there were any arrivals from outside this gropu of players. While Arsenal may still fail in their business we think that tis now the shortlist for January.
We shall keep you updated. Meantime let’s see some Vucinic goals.
