Arsenal to move for young English pair
Some transfer gossip for you this morning Arsenal fans and if these rumours are true i would be one happy Gunner.
First up is Arsenal’s search for a new goalkeeper. It has been reported that Arsene Wenger will make a £10m bid for on loan Manchester City stopper Joe Hart in the summer.
It is no secret that Arsenal’s current top two keepers have made some calamitous errors this season and it’s believed Arsene has had enough, and Hart is his first choice to become our new No1.
A move for Hart would make sense as he will find himself playing back-up to Shay Given when he returns from a very successful loan spell at Birmingham City. I very much doubt he will want to take a step back and sit on the bench every week after making such huge steps forward this year, which could and should earn him a place in England’s World Cup squad.
He is young, talented and English and would be good value at £10m. A good deal all-round Arsene, get that one sorted on Saturday when City come to the Emirates.
The next piece of news is that Arsenal are the latest club to show an interest in Everton’s exciting midfielder Jack Rodwell.
Although Rodwell signed a 5-year deal last February, due to the amount of interest shown in the player, Everton are keen to offer him improved terms in order to keep him happy and not have his head turned.
Rodwell’s impressive performances have attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United, Cheslea and of course Manchester City. So with that lot sniffing around and the money they would offer, i doubt Arsene will compete for him signature if he becomes available.
It’s very rare that Wenger goes for a young Englishmen, as he believes, quite rightly, that they are vastly over-priced. I could see us moving for Hart as there would be less competition as none of the other big-hitters need a goalkeeper, leaving us in pole position. But Rodwell is a different story, so i wouldn’t get you hopes up on that one.
Would you be happy if Arsenal bought either Hart or Rodwell? Who do you think Wenger should bid for in the summer? Please leave your comments below….
