Arsenal Priced Out Of Move For £20m England International
Arsenal have been reportedly priced out for yet another transfer target after they were told it was would cost £20million to land Everton defender Phil Jagielka.
The 28-year old had been linked with a move to North London with Arsene Wenger identifying the defender to fill the troublesome centre back position.
But the Toffees are desperate to hang onto their prized defender and have told Arsenal to pay up or shut up. The Times reports that Jagielka is settled in Liverpool and is unlikely to request a move to the capital leaving Wenger missing out on another target this summer.
Wenger has already missed out on Argentinean midfielder Ricardo Alvarez who joined Inter Milan last month after the Gunners thought they’d won the race to sign the talented South American, and now it looks like they have also missed out on highly-rated youngster Joel Campbell.
***UPDATE*** News reports are claiming that Arsenal submitted a £10m bid for Jagielka, which was rejected by Everton but they may consider a bid nearer £20m.
