Arsenal set to lose out on yet another transfer target

Julio CesarArsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are becoming increasingly frustrated with their club’s lack of action in the transfer market and now news has emerged that another of their reported transfer targets is set to join another club.

Reported Arsenal summer target Julio Cesar is close to completing a move to Serie A side Fiorentina after a £2.5 million bid was accepted reports the Daily Star.

The Queens Park Rangers shot stopper is apparently eager to leave Loftus Road with no desire to play Championship football following their relegation from the Premier League last term.

The Gunners have been strongly linked to the 33-year-old Brazilian international, who impressed for his country during the recent Confederations Cup triumph as Arsene Wenger looks to bring competition in for current first choice Wojciech Szczesny.

Arsenal fans thought they were pole position for the former Inter Milan stopper after his move to Napoli fell through over personal terms with Rafael Benitez instead turning to Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina on loan.

Harry Redknapp is desperate to cut his Championship wage bill and successfully offloading Cesar will be a relief after the experienced keeper was absent from the Hoops squad that beat Sheffield Wednesday in their opening day fixture on Saturday.

Cesar, who wants first team football ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, could make his return to Serie A where he was so successful at the San Siro previously.

Arsenal fans. Should the club have pushed harder for Cesar’s signature or do you still have faith in Wojciech Szczesny? Let us know your thoughts below.
