With the European Championship finally over, Arsenal certainly need to kick start their search for players that will help make the team a contender for the Premier League title next season. Online Soccer Sportsbetting sites have significantly reduced the odds of Arsenal certain certain players.
And based on rumours in the newspapers and blogs in the last two weeks and the odds from various betting companies, we have collated the three deals Arsenal are very likely to complete this week. Note this is for only incoming players and is not inclusive of those likely to leave the club.
Lacazette – Although Lyon’s president and the owner of the club Jean-Michael Aulas has recently confirmed Arsenal are yet to make an official offer for the France international, we believe both Aulas and Wenger are merely playing Poker. Aulas doesn’t want to sell for cheap, Wenger riding on the monopoly of interest believes he can get the striker for cheap and is waiting it out. We strongly believe Lacazette could be having his Arsenal medical before the end of this week. It is reported that a wage package of £120,000 a week which will almost triple Lacazette’s current pay at Lyon is being put together for the Frenchman.
Rob Holding – The Bolton Wanderers’ centre back is said to be a target for Arsenal. According to reports, Arsenal have had a bid of £2.5 million accepted for the signing of the highly rated centre back. Holding has also been linked with a move to Tottenham and Everton but it appears Arsenal have used their cordial working relationship with Bolton to quickly get the deal done. He will be expected to undergo a medical with Arsenal this week according to the reports.
Subotic – Arsenal surely could do with the signing of another centre back especially Chambers seems not to be truth by Wenger and is going to spend some time on loan and because Per Mertesacker will be 32 in September which means he can only get slower. According to various reports, Arsenal have had a bid accepted by Dortmund for the signature of Neven Subotic and the player could be flying into London this week to undergo a medical with Arsenal. Subotic has also been linked with moves to AS Monaco of France and Premier league duo of Middlesbrough and Liverpool. The 27-year-old one who was just three years ago one of the best centre backs in the Bundesliga is said to be available for as little as £12 million. Wenger surely likes a bargain and it is not a surprise that we are said to be on the verge of signing Subotic.
