Arsenal fans cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claim that the Gunners could well be set to sanction a midfield signing at the end of 2014/15.
The Gunners are chasing Real Madrid’s defensive midfielder Asier Illarramendi who is desperate for a move away from Real Madrid after failing to break into the first team and unwilling to make a move to another, lower ranked La Liga side such as suitors Athletic Bilbao.
The 24-year-old has been on the fringes of the Real Madrid side this season and cannot wait to be playing regular first team football week in, week out.
It’s reported that instead of waiting to move to North London in the summer, Illarramendi is impatient and could make a move to Arsenal ahead of schedule this winter.
This is something we think could be a huge boost for the Gunners in the second half of the season and if they manage to get the deal for Villarreal’s Gabriel Paulista completed too, the Gunners would have enjoyed a fantastic transfer window.
Arsenal fans. Would you rather land Sami Khedira on a free transfer in the summer or is a swoop for Illarramendi also favourable? Let us know your thoughts below.
