Arsenal Transfer News: Gunners Line Up £23m Defensive Pair
Arsenal To Step Up Interest In Cahill
According to various reports, Arsenal are going to step up their pursuit for Bolton’s Gary Cahill, due to the concern over Thomas Vermaelen’s latest injury. Cahill is reportedly one of the Gunners’ top defensive targets, but they are reluctant to pay his 17 million pound release clause and whose contract expires next year.
In my opinion, I believe that Cahill would be a good signing for the Gunners, as he’s great in the air and on the ground, and good with the ball in his feet. I believe he would do well for the Gunners, but let’s see if the Gunners make a bid for his services.
Bremen To Listen To Offers For Mertesacker
According to Werder Bremen’s General Manager, Klaus Allofs, the club is willing to listen to offers for Germany international Per Mertesacker, whose contract is set to expire next year. Here’s what Allofs said to The People:
“We are willing to discuss a transfer for Per. “We have promised him we will listen to serious offers.”
The report also suggests that the Gunners are willing to launch a bid of around 6 million pounds for his services. Mertesacker is a player who had a poor season, and may be a risky signing. But when he’s focused and at his best, Mertesacker is a very good defender, who’s a good reader of the game, has great positioning and is great in the air. He could be an excellent steal for Arsenal, if they sign him.
Cheers and take care,
