Arsenal Transfer News: Wenger Lines-up Italian Midfielder As Fabregas Replacement

By on July 13, 2011

There is some more transfer news, rumors, speculation and gossip surrounding the Gunners. So without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Interested In Montolivo

According to reports from Italy, Arsenal are interested in signing Italian international midfielder, Riccardo Montolivo. Montolivo is highly likely to leave his club, Fiorentina, this summer as he has refused to sign a new contract. The reports also state that Wenger,  views him as a possible replacement in case Fabregas leaves this summer. Montolivo, was one of the players I left out in my 10 Possible Fabregas Replacements, but he is a good player and possible replacement for Fabregas.

He is known for his excellent passing and vision, there are concerns over his mentality and lack of character, but he is still a talented player. Link to an article about the news:

Ferguson Denies Nasri Deal…. Hints Of Him Joining Another Club

Man U manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, has finally spoken out on the wave of speculation, linking Nasri to a move to Man U. Ferguson stated that Nasri won’t be joining Man U and hinted that Nasri has agreed a deal to join another club, probably Man City. To be honest, I am not worrying too much about this report, nothing has been made official yet and if you read or watched Wenger’s press conference, we shouldn’t be worried about this, for now…. Wenger is adamant on keeping Nasri.

    My big concern is, how we can go into the season with so many players in the last year of their contract. By my accounting Nasri, Arshavin, Rosicky, Eboue, Lansbury, Bartley, Traore, Almunia are all in their last year and could walk for nothing at the end of the season. That represents a massive gamble by the club. Then there are the players with only 2 years to run, Van Persie, Fabianski, Walcott, Sagna, Squillaci, Vela, Diaby, Denilson, Bendtner. OK quite a few of those none of us want, but losing them for nothing????
