Arsenal prepare for the January sales. Goetze is the top target whilst Podolski is being monitored.
Apologies for the lack of any content over the past two months. University work is, and has been piling in consistently, leaving me with little spare time to post about The Arsenal. Once work has stopped flying in the site will be running as normal, which should be around mid December (heads up in their).
Anyhow, onto the more pressing issues of Arsenal: As I’m sure you know already, Mario Goetze of Borussia Dortmund is our top target. We will have to smash our transfer record (£15million for Arshavin) to gain his services, but realistically Arsenal know unless we poach him in January, this summer we have no chance. Dortmund, understandably don’t want to sell, however as John Cross reported in the Mirror we are genuinely looking at a £30million bid in January. I know, shock horror.
We’ve also been following Lukas Podolski, currently of FC Cologne, though only if he is available for £10million – not the £20million many are reporting. It is ambiguous whether we are viewing him as back up to Van Persie for this year, or thinking more along the lines of a replacement, should Van Persie leave this Summer.
As I’ve got so much more work to do, I’ll leave it at that. I’ll post as much as I can in the next few weeks yet can’t promise anything. Till then, COME ON YOU REDS!
