Deadline day is slowly becoming a game changing one for Arsenal this season with German international midfielder Mesut Ozil expected to be revealed as a Gunners players in the next few hours.
The world class Real Madrid player will join a club record breaking £42.5 million deal after Arsene Wenger fended off interest from Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain to land the 24-year-old.
Gunners supporters in the Football Transfer are rightly delighted at Ozil’s impending arrival but insist that further signings could also be arriving at the Emirates Stadium.
Sky Sports are reporting that a loan deal to bring Chelsea striker Demba Ba has been tabled while Palermo have confirmed that goalkeeper Emiliano Viviano has joined Wenger’s side on loan from Palermo for the season with an option to buy.
Mail Online now suggest that the Gunners made a shock bid to sign Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano however they were told that the former Liverpool man would not be willing to enter into negotiations today.
The Daily Mail had earlier reported that Arsenal could also target a shock move for PSG attacking midfielder Javier Pastore but this remains just speculation for the time being with the paper actually removing the article from their website.
All in the tavern have been surprised with these reports but perhaps that leaves the possibility that Wenger could still enter the market for a new target at this very late stage?
