After snapping up Petr Cech from Chelsea, Arsene Wenger appears to be yet in the mood again; as reports state that a deal for Napoli’s €25 million-rated attacker, Jose Callejon, is set to be finalized in the coming days.
In recent times, Arsenal have been plagued with fitness concerns and injuries to their strikers; and thus, the proposed move for Callejon would certainly be good music to the ears of the Gunners’ fans; who have in recent times, clamoured for a worthy second striker to challenge the consistently inconsistent Olivier Giroud.
Also, reports according to media outfit, the Star, indicate that Arsenal are finally closing on a deal for Napoli of Italy left-back, Faouzi Ghoulam, after weeks of negotiations. €20 million-rated
Augsburg defender Baba Rahman, who is deemed to be a back-up to Arsenal left-back Coquelin, is also reportedly close to sealing a switch to the club.
Elsewhere in Europe, reports state that Wenger appears to be losing the race to sign Juventus and Chile midfielder, Arturo Vidal. With the departure of Bayern Munich midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United now imminent, Bayern have reportedly stepped up
their interest in Vidal, and are looking to beat Arsenal to his signature.
