Arsenal Transfer News: Defender Interest Revealed | South American Linked

By on June 23, 2011

Another day goes by with more transfer news, gossip, rumors, speculation surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here’s the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Renew Interest in Jagielka

According to a report on the Daily Mail, Arsenal have renewed their interest in Everton’s Phil Jagielka. The Gunners have long been interested in the English international central defender, and had a bid rejected last summer. The report states, that Everton are once again reluctant to sell and reportedly value Jagielka at an excess of 15 million pounds. In my opinion, Jagielka is a solid defender, but the Gunners are in need of a tall defender and standing at less than 6 feet, Jagielka doesn’t provide that, as well as being injury prone. Jagielka is a risky signing to make and not worth 15 million pounds, in my opinion.

Arsenal Are Still Interested In Ricardo Alvarez

This saga keeps rumbling on, as the ever-reliable Young Guns Blog report that the Gunners are still interested in signing Velez’s Ricardo Alvarez. The report also states that many other clubs are interested in the playmaker and that his value is so far the stumbling block for a potential transfer (12 million euros). Alvarez, is a highly-rated young player, but will Wenger be willing to spend 12 million euros on him? Not so sure.

Clichy On the Verge of  Signing for PSG?

This interesting piece of news comes from a fellow Arsenal blog, Welcome To The Gunners Town, who state that Clichy is closing in on a move to PSG for around 10 million pounds. This sounds very intriguing, but I’m not sure about it. As there are many reports filtering around, stating that Clichy is interesting two clubs, Liverpool and AS Roma, so the link to PSG is a surprising one. We’ll hopefully know more in the next few days.

    i am tried & fed up with all the rumours without substance. Lets wait & see what happens as from July 1. If you ask me, wenger will only let go players like Niklas, Rosicky, Denilson and Alumunia.
    Fab, Nasir & Clichy stays.

    I think Chris Samba,Osaze Odemwingie,Alex Chamberlain,Gervinho & Ricardo Alvarez would make good signings this season.Pls Wenger make Gunners fans happy again after six trophyless seasons,cos i’m tired of defending you & the entire team.

    Wenger, pls sign Samba cos,he is in dire need of joining the gunners.He’s warned blackburn not to stand in his way of joining the gunners.& my second appeal is for you to pls upgrade Osaze Odemwingie’s weekly wages to enable him join the gunner.Ooh Odemwingie is a threat to big clubs & you know it.Gunners fans want him.

    i am sure wenger will not gone sign players rather he let go players he
    always talk about one player to sign
    and finish the summer.He always talk
    about signing French players or which
    are play in French league.There are
    good players but the are not loyal(e.g nasri,flamny..) to the club to get a loyal player he should have to sign English players(like jack wilsier)
