Arsenal Table £20m Bid For Juve Ace Paul Pogba
Arsenal have tabled a record bid, thought to be in the region of £20million, for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to various reports on Monday night.
With the summer transfer window in full swing, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are in for Paul Pogba.
Arsenal have tabled a record bid, thought to be £20million, for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to various reports on Monday.
The Gunners has endured a frustrating summer so far with boss Arsene Wenger missing out on a number of high profile names so far. To compound his misery, the club have suffered a number of injuries to key first team players with midfielder Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the latest names to be ruled out of action.
It seems Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa, combined with the bad injury news, has sparked the Frenchman into action in the transfer market and the Telegraph are reporting that he’s tabled a bid for Juventus’ powerhouse midfielder Pogba. The newspaper doesn’t disclose the exact amount but ITV sport are claiming it’s £20m.
Football Italia are also reporting Arsenal’s interest in the midfielder however they feel it’s highly unlikely that Juve will be prepared to let the French international leave this summer, with boss Antonio Conte understood to hold the player in high regard and has instructed club officials not to sell him at any price.
Pogba moved to the Serie A champions from Manchester United on a free transfer last summer after failing to agree terms on a new deal at Old Trafford and has impressed at the heart of midfield, scoring six goals in 38 appearances last season.
He’d be an excellent addition to the Arsenal squad if they managed to pull it off, with his athletic presence in midfield exactly what we’re missing at the minute, but it looks extremely unlikely anything will come of this. A deal for Yohan Cabaye is far more feasible, with the midfielder left out of Newcastle’s trip to the Etihad on Monday night after Arsenal saw a £10m bid turned down.
