Arsenal and Chelsea target close to Lazio exit

1978335232-candreva-Transfer-news-Man-Utd-show-interest-in-Candreva-TynThere is at least three or four fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern waiting for tonight’s Europa League tie.

And believe it or not that is a big, big crowd when you consider that nobody actually cares about the competition – except maybe Tottenham.

One side that certainly does not care about Thursday night live is Arsenal and they have been given a boost with the news that Antonio Candreva is edging closer to leaving Lazio.

That is according to TalkSport who claim that Lazio bosses are opposed to offering him a £1 million a season pay rise following an impressive season and World Cup.

Candreva scored 12 league goals last season and wants to become a top earner alongside German striker Miroslav Klose.

But the midfielder is becoming uneasy with his future less than secure and Arsenal and Chelsea could now make their move.

The 27-year old, who set up Mario Balotelli’s goal against England, is valued at £7 million – cheap in comparison to many deals nowadays.

Arsenal fans: Arteta went off injured the other day and Aaron Ramsey was sent off. Would it be a good idea to sign another midfielder to ensure you have cover? Let us know your thoughts below
