Arsenal have lost the midfield duo of Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla in last few days to injuries and, as a result, they are being linked with a host of midfielders ahead of the January transfer window. Coquelin has been ruled out for three months while early reports suggest that Cazorla will be out for a minimum of four months.
Jeremy Wilson of the Telegraph claims that Gunners have renewed their interest in Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho. The North London club have maintained a long-term interest in the player and passed on an opportunity to sign the player in the summer move due to his injury. The 23-year-old, who has a reported clause of 35 million, has now recovered from a fractured tibia and could be available for an approximate fee of £25 million.
Arsenal will face Sunderland today and we expect Gooners to win by 50%.
Player has expressed his desire to move to Gooners, find out his words and 2 other new midfielders and continue reading.
The player has expressed his desire for a move to the Gunners in the past: “I am where I want to be right now, which is Sporting but if I ever leave then it’s a sign that my work here is done. I dream of winning the Primeira Liga here. I prefer not to say too much, but there is a club with which I’ve always been fond of: Arsenal.”
Another player to have been linked with the North London club is Inter Milan’s Marcelo Brozovic. The Croatian international is currently playing for the Serie A club on loan from Dinamo Zagreb. Fichajes reports that the 23-year-old is interested in a move to Premier League, and Arsenal particularly interests him as a destination. Brozovic’s agent Miroslav Bicanic has previously stated that player desires to move to Premier League. The midfielder has already accumulated 14 appearances with the Croatian national team.
Portuguese publication O Jogo has linked Arsenal with a move for Porto’s youngster Ruben Neves. The 18-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in Europe this season and has already captained his club. O Jogo claims that Gunners’ scout Luis Boa Morte was in attendance as Porto faced Uniao Madeira on Wednesday evening.
However, the player failed to make an appearance, from the substitutes’ bench, in the game. The youngster has also attracted interests from the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool and will demand a fee in the region of £29million.
