Transfer News: Arsenal Linked With £30m Winger | Spurs Eye Frederic Injai

By on July 23, 2013

With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are linked with a move for Salvio while Spurs are tracking Inter Milan youngster Frederic Injai.

Arsenal linked with Salvio

First up and the Daily Star are reporting that Arsenal are lining-up a bid for £30m-rated Benfica winger Eduardo Salvio.

The Gunners have endured a frustrating summer so far having failed to make a breakthrough in their pursuits of big-money signings such as Gonzalo Higuaina and Luis Suarez. However, the Star claim Wenger may make a move for Salvio as he looks to add to his attacking options this summer but the Argentinean international is valued at around £30m by his current club Benfica.

The 23-year-old joined the Portuguese outfit on a permanent deal last summer from Atletico Madrid after impressing on loan during the 2011/12 season. He enjoyed a hugely impressive campaign last term, scoring 13 goals and providing 10 assists in 53 appearances to help the club reach the final of the Europa League as well as push Porto all the way in the title race.

Salvio operates mainly as a right winger but can also play on the left, so would provide Arsene Wenger with plenty of options if he did end up making the move to north London.

Spurs eye Injai

Next up and talkSPORT are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur are weighing-up a move for highly-rated Inter Milan starlet Frederic Injai.

The 17-year-old started his career with Nantes and came through the esteemed Clarefontaine national academy in France before making the move to Italy at a young age.

Injai is highly regarded at Milan but is yet to make any sort of first team breakthrough and talkSPORT claim Spurs are locked in a battle with German outfit Bayer Leverkusen to land the talented midfielder this summer.

Boss Andre Villa-Boas and his scouts have been keeping a close eye on his progress and the report suggests the north Londoners will make a formal bid before the end of the week.

    I immediately assumed you were saying Arsenal are linked with Rooney when I mistakenly read “£30m Whinger”.
