REPORT: Arsenal In Talks With Mikel Arteta Over £10m Move

By on August 31, 2011

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Everton’s Mikel Arteta, according to reports.

Several media outlets, including Sky Sports News, have suggested the Gunners had submitted a £10m bid for the player that was initially rejected by the Toffee’s. But it seems they may now be prepared to do business and have allowed the player to speak with Arsenal about a proposed transfer.

A potential replacement for Arteta has already been lined up, with Real Madrid’s Drenthe on the way to Merseyside to discuss a move.

***UPDATE*** Widespread reports say the deal has broken down, and Arsenal have now switched their attention to Yossi Benayoun.

    He would be a great signing, with the other additions already in place a creative midfielder was the only other urgent requirement and he fits the bill very well, experienced in the PL so will slot straight in and plays the Arsenal way. From the very low point of Sunday we are now looking to be set for the season but why oh why has Arsene left it so late when everyone knew where we needed strengthening and a few early purchases would have avoided the weekends disaster.
