This has been a bit of a quiet day regarding transfer news, speculation, rumors and gossip, surrounding the Gunners. Despite that, there are a few intriguing pieces of news today so without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.
Arsenal Interested In Signing Benzema
Various reports have been filtering around, suggesting and stating that the Gunners are lining up a 27 million pound bid to sign Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema. Despite Mourinho stating that Benzema won’t be leaving Real Madrid this summer. The potential deal for Neymar has left the French international’s future in doubt. Benzema would be an excellent signing for the Gunners, if it were to happen. Especially if Real Madrid do sign another quality striker, then there is a chance of the Gunners acquiring Benzema, if they’re serious about signing him.
Arsenal In For Mata
Many reports are stating that the Gunners are seriously interested in signing Spain international and Valencia star, Juan Manuel Mata. According to the Daily Mirror, Mata is valued at 15 million pounds. In my opinion, Mata is a quality, versatile player, who’s skillful, makes excellent runs, dynamic, creative and an excellent crosser. I don’t believe Mata is rated at 15 million pounds, he is worth in excess of 20 million pounds and has a release clause worth around 22 million pounds.
What do you think? Do you think Wenger will go for Benzema? Would you like to see Mata as a Gunner?
Cheers and take care,
