Wenger Confirms Sahin Interest & Admits Song Could Go
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed his interest in signing Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin and admitted Alex Song could be on the move this summer.
With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Arsene Wenger discusses Alex Song and Nuri Sahin.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed his interest in Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin and admitted Alex Song could be sold this summer.
Speaking to Sky Sports News at his weekly press conference ahead of this weekends Premier League opener against Sunderland, Wenger was quizzed on whether he would be making any further additions to his squad and also if Song would be sold this summer, to which he replied:
“Both could happen, but my focus is on the Sunderland game (on Saturday).”
Song has been strongly linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona in recent weeks with the Catalans looking to replace the departed Seydou Kieta.
The Cameroon midfielder has been at the Emirates for over seven years and clocked up over 200 appearances for the club but it’s understood boss Arsene Wenger would be open to selling if a suitable offer came in.
Speaking to Arsenal.com later on, Wenger conceded he had not made his mind up on the future of Song, but revealed no bid had been tabled as yet.
“This decision is not made [on Song],”
“No bid has been made and I cannot tell you more.
“I don’t know [about Song] at the moment, my focus is more on tomorrow’s game.”
The Frenchman was then quizzed about reported interest in Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin, who Wenger is believed to be keen to bring in should Song depart, and Wenger confirmed he is tracking the Turkish ace:
“He is one of the players we are following,”
Wenger is quoted as saying on Arsenal.com
So it looks very much like the papers have this one correct, and Wenger is considering selling Song and may very well bring Sahin in to replace him.
