Arsenal have been enjoying their victory in the final of the FA Cup against Chelsea, however, their backroom team must be back to work as they don’t have much time to flex their muscles in the transfer market. Hence, keeping up with the reports we bring to you the latest transfer rumours regarding the Gunners.
Willian’s proposed move to be on its way as now multiple reports have confirmed Arsenal being heavily interested in snapping up the Brazilian from their North London rivals, Chelsea. The Athletic’s David Ornstein has confirmed that an offer for the Gunners is imminent and that while Willian hasn’t decided his future yet, he does prefer the Gunners over other offers he has on the table.
The Gunners’ offer isn’t the most financially impressive of all the offers that he has, however, the Brazillian is thought to be tempted about working under Mikel Arteta and joining Edu Gaspar at Arsenal. Mikel Arteta reportedly thinks highly of him and considers him as a valuable addition given his experience and his winning mentality.
Folarin Balogun, Arsenal’s 19-year-old young prospect, is said to be on the move after declining a contract extension at Arsenal and the club is said to be looking to sell the player this summer rather than losing him on free next season. Arsenal have recorded interest from Liverpool, Southampton, Brentford and various clubs in the Bundesliga including Stuggart.
The North London giants have been reported to asking for a fee around the £8 million mark which has reportedly put off many suitors as they believe such a fee is unjustified for a player who is yet to make a senior appearance, however, Balogun is highly rated amongst the footballing circuit and the Gunners would be stern about their demands.
Reports have stated about Barcelona’s desperation about moving Philippe Coutinho on and they are hopeful of finding a solution to their long standing problem. The La Liga outfit believes they have a chance of getting the former Liverpool man off their books as they believe his agent, Kia Joorabchian, has close links to the Arsenal hierarchy and can end up taking Coutinho to the Emirates.
