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,
