Tuesday 1st Jan – Arsenal transfer gossip round up
Arsene Wenger could enjoy more success with his bid to sign a striker from the La Liga according to Goal.com as they report that the Arsenal manager has made an official move for Atletico Madrid’s Adrian Lopez. Wenger has made a £10m offer for the 24 year old Spaniard after seemingly giving up David Villa and ruling out Demba Ba. Arsenal are in need of another centre-forward to share the burden of goals with Theo Walcott at the moment and Lopez could be a valuable addition to the squad mainly due to his versatility.
The Guardian have Wilfried Zaha pinned down as the most prominent name of the transfer window, reporting that Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea and Tottenham are behind the Crystal Palace prodigy. All of those suitors don’t value the 20 year old above £10m but Palace unsurprisingly want to make the best of the situation considering their presence in the Championship. Expect the ball to roll quickly on this one once an official bid flows in.
