There is a new loss for Arsenal in their pursuit of transfer targets as the January window nears a close.
Despite ending the summer with exciting deals for Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez, Arsene Wenger dealt with disappointment for much of the transfer window as the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez rejected moves to the Emirates stadium.
Julian Draxler, who joined Paris Saint-Germain at the beginning of this month, also recently turned down Arsenal’s offer of a transfer.
And according to Italian outlet Calciomercato, the Gunners have lost another target, Kostas Manolas, who has now agreed to join Inter Milan from AS Roma.
The report is indicating that Manolas, the subject of strong interest from Arsenal in the past two years, has been approached on several occasions by the north London side.
However, Arsenal’s £34.6 million offer for the signing of the defender was rejected by Roma who have rather chosen to accept Inter Milan’s £36.3m bid.
