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