From all indication and judging by the reports from the likes of John Cross and other reliable journalist, Arsenal would certainly be signing a centre back this summer. We have already been linked with many centre backs. Kostas Manolas and Rudiger of Roma, Mats Hummels, Rob Holding and now Neven Subotic have all been linked with Arsenal.
Last night, news emerged that Arsenal have had a bid accepted for the signature of Subotic but if you believe Skysports, the player has arrived England to hold talks with Middlesboroug and not Arsenal. Earlier reports had claim the Serbian will arrive England today to under go a medical with Arsenal.
Unfortunately Skysports are quite reliable and unless Arsenal intend to make a last minute move for the player, I am afraid, we are losing out on yet another of our target. This summer is fast shaping out like that of last summer. Last summer, we were after many players but could only sign Petr Cech. This summer so far, we have been linked with many stars and have seen them move elsewhere.
Could Subotic be joining the list of players we have miss out on signing this summer? That will be a big blow especially as Skysports reckons the player is available for £8m.
