Anything short of the Premier League title for Arsenal next season will be described as a disappointment considering some of the quality players being linked with a move to the club. In recent weeks, players like Porto’s Jackson Martinez, Morgan Schniederlin of Southermpton, and Peter Cech have all been linked with a move to the Emirates. These world-class players by every standard, and getting them to join the Gunners, will no doubt make the club formidable next season.
Here is a round-up of the latest transfer news and rumours as it concerns the Gunners:
Sky Sports reports that the Gunners have agreed personal terms with Chelsea long-serving goalkeeper, Peter Cech, even though both clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee. According to the report, the deal is expected to go ahead despite the fact that Chelsea and Arsenal are yet to agree on a transfer fee for the goalkeeper.
Per the Express, the Gunners have once again been linked with a move for Porto forward, Jackson Martinez after AC Milan pulled out of a deal to sign the highly-sort after striker this summer. The Colombian was quoted as saying he was waiting for the Gunners to trigger his release clause, which is put at €34-million.
Despite being closely linked with a move to Italian giant, Inter Milan, Arsenal are in with a chance of signing Giannelli Imbula from Olympique Marseille. According to Le10 Sport, the midfielder has been in contact with the Gunners over a possible move to the Emirates this summer.
