Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Eye £18m Mata Alternative | Defender Linked

As usual there are interesting transfer gossip, speculation, rumors and news surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Going For Dann

According to various reports, the Gunners are considering launching a bid to sign Birmingham defender, Scott Dann and will make a bid of around 10 million pounds for his services. The report also states that the Gunners will check on the defender, to see if he has recovered from his hamstring injury that he suffered last season, before making a bid.

I’ve always rated Scott Dann, who’s known for his toughness, aerial ability and composure, and he looks financially viable as he’s reportedly valued at around 12 million pounds.

Arsenal Interested In Turan

According to Turkish reports, the Gunners are interested in launching an 18 million euro to sign Galatasaray star, Arda Turan. The reports suggest that Wenger will go for Turan, if his bid for Juan Mata fails.

Turan, in my opinion, is an excellent player who should left to a top league, long ago. He’s a skillful, creative, versatile and tricky player, with a strong character and leadership qualities. Turan would be an excellent signing for the Gunners.


Here’s a video of Turan, displaying his talents:


Arsenal Closing In On Real Madrid Youngster

According to various reports, Arsenal are closing in on Spain’s U-17 star and Real Madrid player, Jese Rodriguez, who recently won the Player of the Tournament in the U-17 World Club Championship. Rodriguez is known as a player with excellent technique, hard-working, powerful and creative, who plays as a central midfielder. He’s highly rated by Real Madrid and has a bright future ahead of him.


Here’s a short video of Rodriguez, displaying his talents:


Bartley Signs New Contract, Then Gets Loaned To Rangers

Earlier today, young Arsenal central defender, Kyle Bartley, signed a new long term contract with the Gunners and has returned on loan for the rest of the season with Rangers. Bartley, was expected to finally play first team football with the Gunners this season, after two loan spells with Sheffield United and Rangers. This most likely means that Wenger is going after a new central defender this summer.

I was really hoping that Kyle Bartley will play for Arsenal this season, but another loan move with regular game time, will help him in the long run and I wish him all the best of luck with Rangers.


What do you think? Should the Gunners go for Dann and Turan? Do you think that Arsenal should be going for another youngster? What are your thoughts on Bartley getting loaned out again?

Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    I am tired of Arsene Wenger wanting to buy this or that. Turan is not a bad player. AW shld go ahead and buy him b4 Mancity/Chelsea/PSG/Malaga/ManU will be interested.

      The idea that Wenger seeks replacements a week before a new season suggests total lack of ambition. If he had signed good players in June, Fabregas and Nasri might well have stayed. We are going backwards. The “best” thing now would be to lose to Udinese – only a shock will loosen Wenger’s despotic grip on our club and bring home to our new owner that he needs to back investment in the team on a huge scale under a new, more ambitious Manager.

        never thought i’d hear myself say it- but i TOTALLY AGREE. Whats made it worse is the chairman coming out and saying to the fans “we need to prepare ourselves for another trophyless season” Its a sad day when even the chairman doesn’t care about success… Its time for Silent Stan to pull his finger out.

    Turan is a good player and Wenger should try to sign him quickly.For Scott Dann,i dont think he is the solution to our defensive problems,he is not better than what we have at the moment and whats wrong with Wenger moving for another youngster?I will say buy them all.

    Ramsey is a quality player we do not want to lose him. We should go for Cahil and Turan if Mata deal fails.

    i think he should buy both of the midfielders but yea dann isn’t any better then djorou he should go for cahil forget about jagelka

  21. Dan

    August 6, 2011 at 10:42 am

    I have had enough of Arsene Wenger faffing about not doing anything whereas he could be doing his research there is no point buying dann or jagielka he should by a excperienced defender like cahil or samba.
    here is a list of players i want him to get Benzema, Cahill or samba, turah, mata,
    eden hazard and alex chamberlain
    i now thats a lot of players but there the one’s that are going to make a difference!!!
