While the Metro always anxious to jump into any rumour going has Arsenal ‘ready to sign £47.8m superstar after hijacking Liverpool’s transfer talks’ to which the Telegraph replies ‘Arsenal close in on Juventus striker Llorente ‘
They also tell us that Arsene Wenger has set his sights on signing Barcelona holding midfielder Sergio Busquets but then carefully put the blame for that one on Spanish publication Sport, adding that (rather late in the day it would seem) “Wenger has drawn up a list of potential summer targets and top of that list is Spain international Busquets.
“It seems Wenger sees the experienced midfielder as a player who could ‘bring balance to the Gunners’ midfield’. Arsenal are said to be willing to meet the wage demands of the 27-year-old to secure his services.
“However, Barcelona boss Luis Enrique may not be keen to sell Busquets given he is already losing Pedro to either Manchester United or Bayern Munich.”
But the Metro is more certain…
Arsenal ‘willing to meet Sergio Busquets’ huge wage demands to seal transfer’ it shouts on today’s website.
Do you ever feel you have just gone around in a circle?
And you will note that they still say this last bit without even mentioning that because of their involvement in child trafficking, upheld despite giving evidence in the original hearing and two other appeals along the lines of “we are Barcelona we don’t do that” they are banned from buying anyone at all for use before January 1.
But hey ho, “Arsenal are ready to pay £48 million to sign Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund, says popular German newspaper Bild.” Apparently Lord Harris had the money in his back pocket and this is not just a transfer but a hi-jacking.
The Gunners have reportedly hijacked (told you) Liverpool’s talks to sign Reus, with Wenger known to be a long-term fan and speculation rife that the German is leaving Dortmund this summer.
And finally, Arsenal have apparently been offered Spain striker Alvaro Negredo as Valencia look to offload him.
Even more finally, Chelsea allow Christophe Lollichon to make transfer to Arsenal. He’s a goalkeeper coach. Maybe that’s the one.
