Transfer News: Wenger Eyes Ligue 1 Powerhouse | Spurs Linked With Raid On Man Utd

Latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are ready to move for Josuha Guilavogui and Spurs are linked with a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

Javier Hernandez

As we enter the final stages of the summer transfer window, 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 move for Josuha Guilavogui and Spurs are linked with a move for Javier Hernandez.

Arsenal eye Guilavogui

First up and the Daily Mail are reporting that Arsene Wenger is ready to move for St Etienne midfielder Josuha Guilavogui if his bid to land Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye fails.

The Gunners had an opening bid of around £10m rejected by the Geordies earlier this month and Cabaye has been unsettled ever since, with reports suggesting he’s refused to play until his move to north London is sealed.

However, Alan Pardew insists that the Frenchman will not be sold on the cheap with the club thought to value the 27-year-old at around £20m, and Cabaye will be expected to turn out for Newcastle this weekend if no fresh bid from Arsenal comes in.

It remains to be seen whether Wenger will be prepared to meet that valuation and the Mail claim he’s now lined-up St Etienne’s midfielder Guilavogui as an alternative option.

The 22-year-old impressed last season at the heart of midfield and standing at over 6 foot and powerfully built, he has the physical presence to cope with the demands of Premier League football and could be the man Arsenal need to protect their back-four.

Spurs eye United raid

Next up and the Mirror are reporting that Tottenham are set to continue their sensational spending spree after making a move for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

The report claims Spurs have already made contact with the champions about the Mexican’s availability and while United are not actively trying to sell the player, they may be tempted to cash in if a bid of around £15m comes in.

The 25-year-old has struggled to hold down a first team place at Old Trafford with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck all ahead of him in the pecking order, so he might be open to a move to north London if the two clubs can agree a deal.

The Mirror suggest that Andre Villas-Boas could sell Jermain Defoe to fund a move for Chicharito, but Spurs may not be prepared to pay beyond £8m for the striker which is unlikely to be of interest to United.

    To me Cabaye is more offensive than defensive. Wenger should go for Guilavogui, he is young and the type of player we need now. What he needs is to adapt to the pace and tempo of the EPL then the sky would be his limit under the tutelage of prof.

    Everybody saying arsenal is the hardest group lets see after the group matches, which teams makes it to the last 16, we have beaten all these teams before and it shall be done again. However i do agree we still need about 3-4 signings, 2 quality and 2 for numbers
