Cabaye Wants Arsenal Move As Wenger Sanctions New £15m Bid

Yohan Cabaye is keen on making a move to the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal line-up an improved £15m offer for the French midfielder, according to reports tonight.

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 ready to increase their offer for Yohan Cabaye.


Yohan Cabaye is keen on making a move to the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal line-up an improved £15m offer for the French midfielder, according to reports tonight.

The Gunners saw an opening offer of around £10m rejected out-of-hand by the Geordies yesterday with boss Alan Pardew heavily criticising the north Londoners for not only the size of the bid but also the timing of it, as the midfielder was subsequently left out of their 4-0 defeat to Man City on Monday night following interest from Arsene Wenger’s side.

Sky Sports sources are claiming that Cabaye is keen on making the move to the Emirates Stadium, with the player believed to want to take the opportunity to play in the Champions League.  Newcastle are adamant that Arsenal will have up their bid dramatically for them to consider a deal, with the report suggesting an offer of around £18-£20m will be required for owner Mike Ashley to sell.

The Evening Standard claim that Wenger gave the go-ahead for an improved £15m bid to be submitted this week shortly before he flew out to Turkey with the Arsenal squad to play the first leg of their vital play-off with Fenerbache.

The newspaper suggests that PSG are also keen on the 27-year-old and have asked to be kept informed of any developments, with the big-spending French outfit understood to have indicated that they would be prepared to pay in the region of £15m for the midfielder – an offer that Arsenal are willing to match.

It remains to be seen whether that sum will be enough to persuade Newcastle into selling but it would represent a huge profit on the fee they paid Lille two years ago.

    Ridiculous, Gazidis should be sanctioning bids for required players, NOT Wenger. Does Daniel Levy have his dealings sanctioned by AVB? Arsenal are dysfunctional and it explain why there has been no activity so far.

    Why not just bid £17m and have your man, why are we so stingy? Tottenham have paid £30m for willian and are willing to pay another £30m for lamela.

    He is not what we need. We need a defensive midfielder, a striker and a good central defender follewed by a keeper and winger. We have enough attacking midfielders.

    Wenger should not be allowed
    Near any of the transfer fund money
    He’s a manager

    It’s all too little too late with any transfers done after the season has started. Wenger needed to bring in new signings during the pre-season to integrate with the squad, not look for bargain buys during the last 2 weeks of the transfer window.

    And the fact he said “I would just like to reiterate to you that, in the last 16 years, we have been very successful with transfers” is a ludicrous statement since we haven’t won anything for past 8 years! How is he measuring success then, by how much profit Arsenal made by selling our best players! And also clearing the dead for less than what we paid for or for free!

    Though I will always support the club till I die but unless drastic measures take place, like buying 3-4 BIG signings before the window closes, Arsenal will NOT finish in the top 4 and will even struggle to finish in the top 6!

    If Wenger does not sign any players this summer,we better forget of winning any trophy and this should be his last season…we need trophies its been long and what the hel is the board doing about this??

    Does he has anything to deliver anymore? Wenger is finished! He will not buy! To him,’no quality player outside there’. Sorry for Wenger! I would be the happiest to celebrate his exit. To worsen the situation was the 3-0 win over lowly Fernabache! Hunmmmm! Fingers crossed!
