According to a report by Spanish media out let, AS SPORT, Wenger is keen on signing Barca’s Sergio Busquets as the Frenchman wants the Spaniard to be Arsenal’s defensive midfielder next season. Arsenal are obviously in the market for a new defensive midfield signing. The gunners have already been linked with the signing of Morgan Schneiderlin but Manchester United beat the gunners to his signing.
Geoffrey Kondogbia who joined Inter Milan few weeks ago is another player who has been linked to a move to Arsenal. With Mathieu Flamini seemingly on the way out of the club and Arteta now injury problem due to age, Francis Coquelin remains the only reliable defensive midfielder at the club.
However, do Arsenal really have a chance of signing Busquets?
With the Spaniard’s contract expiring in four years time, I do not think Arsenal have a remote chance of signing him. It is even look more less likely when you consider the fact that Barca cannot sign a replacement in this transfer window.
A DM is a must for Arsenal but if Wenger really wants a DM, then he should look elsewhere as Barca are never going to sell Busquets and they really do not have to.
