Arsenal’s Transfer Deadline Rumours

It’s not gonna happen! It’s not gonna happen! But if only it would!

Arsenal have reportedly held talks with Paris Saint-Germain to sign duo Edinson Cavani and Adrien Rabiot, according to the Daily Mail. After giving up on the hope of landing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid, Arsenal have since turned their attention to PSG ace Cavani, and the Daily Mail claim they held talks on Monday to sign the Uruguayan striker along with Rabiot. However, it appears the move to sign 28-year-old Cavani could be too complex to be to be completed before the window shuts at 6pm on Tuesday.

Galatasaray are preparing an offer to sign Arsenal ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the Daily Mirror claim. A French agent as reportedly been given permission to hold talks over a big-money deal to sign the 22-year-old. Oxlade-Chamberlain currently has three years left on his contract at the Emirates and Galatasaray are said to be “deadly serious” to entice him to Turkey. And Arsene Wenger’s hunt for a new striker continues as the Daily Telegraph cite reports in Russia claiming Dynamo Moscow have turned down a loan bid for Aleksandr Kokorin. It had reported that Arsenal were looking at signing the 24-year-old on a one-year loan deal with a view to a permanent move. However, Dynamo have rejected the offer put forward by the Emirates club.

Seriously Arsene Wenger leaving important signings till this late in the transfer window reeks of unprofessionalism. Time to resign and make way for an able & more capable replacement?
