Up till now, the January transfer window has been moving along smoothly with the opening week looking somewhat quiet as the rumors come in from all angles.
Deals are starting to get finalized and the Premier League Clubs are already hitting the ground to get deals done within the remaining 23 days.
Arsenal are set to finalize one major signing of the window, but according to Arsene Wenger’s statement in his pre-match press conference ahead of the FA Cup clash with Sunderland, a deal for Mohamed Elneny is yet to finalized.
According to our latest reports, Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krchowiak has added fuel to the speculation that he has his eyes set on a move to Arsenal after admitting the club’s interest in signing him.
It is reported that the Gunners have been a long-term admirers of the 25-year-old, but are yet to make a tangible move for the midfielder. The Polish International has had a dramatic rise to fame after playing a role in helping Sevilla win the Europa League for a record fourth time last season.
The midfielder, however, has explained that all matters pertaining to his future will be taken care of by his agent leaving him free to focus on helping Sevilla to climb La Liga.
“The Premier League? Some say it’s the best in the world, other people think that’s La Liga,” Krychowiak said. “I’ve heard about Arsenal, but I leave it to my agent. I trust him and he’s the one who deals with that kind of the stuff. I can’t think about things like that. I have to keep my mind free of any distraction and just focus on doing my job for Sevilla.”
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has declared that Arsenal will go into the transfer market in January and acquire cover for the injured Francis Coquelin in the defensive midfield role and have eyed a move on a good number of players. Arsenal are already set to finalize Mohamed Elneny’s deal from Basel. Krychowiak, however, will prove to be a better candidate compared to Elneny.
“I definitely want to be a better player, but it will only happen when the team does well. There are a million things I can still improve. The moment I start thinking that I’m a finished product as a player will be the moment I start regressing. I believe I can be a much better, more complete player at the end of 2016,” the midfielder explained.
Sevilla had agreed on a new deal with the Krychowiak with an increase release clause in November last year, hence Wenger will have to fork out £32.2 million to bring the midfielder to the Emirates.
