Arsenal Transfer News: Campbell Update | Copa America Star Linked

Arsenal have been linked with a move for a Uruguayan defender and are likely to increase their offer for Everton defender Phil Jagielka. There is also an update on Joel Campbell…

Arsenal To Increase Bid For Jagielka

According to We Are The North Bank, the Gunners will make an increased offer for Everton’s Phil Jagielka. Arsenal had a bid rejected for Jagielka, which reports vary between 10 -12 million pounds and now it’s said that they will increase their bid to around 15 million pounds to land the English center back.

If this report is true, then it shows how serious the Gunners are in landing Jagielka and how highly rated he is. But will Everton accept this reported increased bid?

Arsenal Interested In Alvaro Pereira

According to Pereira’s agent, the Gunners, along with Liverpool, are interested in signing Porto and Uruguayan international left back, Alvaro Pereira. Perreia was impressive for Porto last season and with Uruguay in their Copa America triumph, and also against the Gunners in the Champions League, a couple of seasons ago. Pereira reportedly has a buyout clause of around 18 million pounds.

In my opinion, Pereira is an excellent player who’s known for his excellent forward runs, can make good crosses, good with the ball in his feet, strong physically and does well defensively. He would be a very good signing for the Gunners.

Campbell Update

According Costa Rica’s U-20 assistant manager and Joel Campbell himself, Campbell is set to join the Gunners and has confirmed his arrival.

Here’s a link, displaying a video of the interview (It’s in Spanish) –

It looks like this saga is coming to an end and Joel Camppbell will become a Gunner. But whether or not, he’ll be able to play as a Gunner next season, remains to be seen as Campbell hasn’t played 70% of Costa Rica’s international matches, so his only hope will be to obtain a “Special Talent” visa… which I hope he will.

What do you think? Should the Gunners go all out for Jagielka? Do you want Arsenal to go for Pereira? What are your thoughts on Campbell’s impending arrival?

Cheers and take care,

Omar –

    Ithink if we get J. Mata we should sell Nasri to MCity for 15 mil plus Adam Johnson that would give us good ballance give Theo the chance in the middle, & with the 15 mill go & get Eden Hazard buy a good LB Bains or Pereira & sign Cahill & Samba, that would be a strong team with many mix & match options

    Wenger knows what he is doing so the arsenal fans will think that he wants to sign somebody. How could he go and bid a less price for a big player? He is just doing all those things let it not be as if he did’t bid at all. If u doubt me, just remember what he did last summer when arsenal was crying for a goalkeeper and he waited till the last day before he bidded for liverpool goalkeeper knowing fully well that they will not sell for any amount.He will still do same to defender this summer.HE SHOULD WAIT LET THE BOARD BE BUYING PLAYERS FOR HIM.

      I see what your saying, its a deliberate move by Wenger to take us down to the bottom of the premiership!!
      Take a good look at what your saying Kc
      if you realy believe Wenger is conspiring to bring in no-one then perhaps a few sessions with a shrink would do you some good.

    I think we shud sell nasri and fabregas and get hazard and mata as replacements for our wantaway midfielders,also get samba and jagielka and another stryker though i dont think a stryker is what we desire most all we need to improve on is the defence we shud make sure we buy about 2-3 defenders,ENk
