The transfer window closes next week Wednesday, that means time is running out for Arsene Wenger in the transfer market. The main priority for the Gunners now is to bring in as many quality players as possible. Other teams know that Arsenal are desperate to sign new players and thus they may inflate their prices on them.
Reports suggest that Arsenal have made a new improved bid of £15million for Everton centre-back Phil Jagielka. Arsenal had made a £12million before but that was rejected as Everton are holding out for £18million.
Everton have made it clear that they do not want to sell any of their star players which include Jagielka but Everton are in a financial crisis right now and any money they make from selling players would go straight to the bank and not fund new transfers for them, thus David Moyes wants to keep his current squad.
If Arsenal are serious about getting Jagielka, then I do not see why we should not just give Everton the £18million they want. We need to sign some quality players, no matter the cost!
