Arsenak are reportedly back in the hunt for Everton defender Phil Jagielka which sites that we may not be as close as we think to signing Backburn’s Chris Samba. But Arsenal will find it difficult to sign Phil Jagielka as Everton are reluctant to sell him.
The Samba deal seems to be dragging on and the longer it takes the more unlikely it could happen. Blackburn have come out and said that they do not have to sell Samba in order to balance the books unless they get a really good offer for him which they can not turn down. Now we know Wenger will not go in with a big offer as he hates spending cash.
Wenger tried to sign Phil Jagielka last summer but Everton did not want to sell. The same could easily happen again this summer especially since we also want Baines from Everton.
