Arsenal Transfer News: Two Strikers Close | New Fabregas Offer | Arsenal Raid Barca

By on June 11, 2011

Another field day regarding transfer news, rumors, gossip, speculation regarding the Gunners. There is a lot of interesting headlines that will surprise and maybe exciting, so without further ado…. here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Gervinho is closing on a move to Arsenal


This news is now all over the web and is the major headline today, the headline was first published by TalkSport and is now on the minds of many Gooners. Lille are said to have rejected an offer from Tottenham and there are reports that the Gunners will seal this signing during the weekend. In my opinion, Gooners shouldn’t be celebrating this deal at the moment, as there are reports that Man City have butted in and have offered much higher wages to get his signature. We’ll know more in the next few days, hopefully good news.

Arsenal complete move for Southampton starlet Alex Oxlade -Chamberlain


There are many reports filtering and stating that the Gunners have completed the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Southampton and that the deal will be made official on the first of July. The deal is worth to be a reported 12 million pounds. In my opinion, I believe that this is an excellent signing and that Oxlade-Chamberlain is a talented and gifted player, but again I wouldn’t celebrate at the moment until official confirmation.

Barca offer two young starlets plus 30 million euros for Fabregas


A day doesn’t go by without another Fabregas to Barca rumor, and today’s reports state that Barcelona have offered both Bojan and Thiago Alcantara along with 30 million euros cash for Fabregas. In my opinion, I don’t like this supposed new offer, I don’t believe it’s good enough and isn’t tempting, unless they include Affelay or another excellent player in the deal or Barca pay Fabregas’s transfer value, which is around 50 million pounds.

Arsenal are after another Barcelona starlet….. again!


Looks like the Gunners are interested in another Barcelona starlet, even after the signings of Jon Toral and Hector Bellerin. The reliable, We Are The North Bank, report that Arsenal’s chief scout, Steve Rowley, traveled to watch the U19 European Championships in Switzerland, particularly the Elite Group 2 of the championship where England, Spain, Montenegro, and Switzerland are featured. Rowley wasn’t only watching Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but also Barcelona’s 17 year old starlet Gerard Deulofeu, who is regarded as a hugely talented prospect. I’m not too sure about this one, I would like see more talent coming to Arsenal, but I think two Barcelona youngsters are enough for one year and that we should get our complete focus on buying proven, quality players.

    The Fabregas situation has to be resolved one way or another. I do not like the idea of keeping him another season because he will refuse to sign a new contract I know he signed a long one but by next summer his value will be greatly reduced. He has increasingly looked distracted and I doubt this along with his injuries will change next season. Unless madrid bid 30m plus players is the way to go.
