The transfer window is starting to get full of activity. From an Arsenal perspective, not much has been happening in our transfer window as we are still awaiting our first major signing. We continue to be linked with a whole list of players but nothing too concrete yet.
Arsenal are after a central defender and it is pretty obvious that we need one although some fans disagree with this and feel that Arsenal’s defensive weaknesses can be solved on the training ground. Be that as it may, Wenger has been constantly linked with a move for Blackburn’s Chris Samba but that deal seems to be dragging on for way too long now and Blackburn may decide not to sell Samba or they may price him out of a move.
This means that Wenger may now have to turn his attentions to another central defender and it could easily be Bolton’s Gary Cahill.
Reports are suggesting that talks are at an advanced stage between Arsenal and Bolton with the Gunners ready to meet the 25-year-old’s £17million release clause, although a player-plus-cash offer is also thought to have been discussed.
Who would you rather Arsenal sign? Samba or Cahill?
