Arsenal boss poised to bid £9.6m for ‘new Fabregas’

Wenger has money to spend The regulars in the Football Transfer Tavern are still all scrambling round to find out about the latest transfer gossip despite the fact that moves cant take place until January.

But it is Arsenal fans that are getting the most excited with Metro reporting that the Gunners are interested in Sergi Samper.

Reports suggest that Arsene Wenger is keen on bringing the Barcelona midfielder to North London with the Frenchman ready to bid £9.6 million.

That would be enough to trigger the 19-year-old’s release clause leaving him free to discuss terms with the Premier League outfit.

The young Spanish midfielder has been compared to former Gunner Cesc Fabregas and it is believed that Wenger has been keeping tabs on his progress for months.

And the Frenchman could give him the chance of a move away from Spain having struggled to break into Barcelona’s first team.

The Gunners have previously raided the Catalan club for Hector Bellerin and Jon Toral and will be hoping Samper fancies the move as well.

Arsenal fans. Is this the kind of signing you would like Wenger to be making or would you prefer an experienced pro? Let us know your thoughts below.
