Club president gives transfer update on €90m Arsenal targets


Arsenal are looking to do some business in the last few days of the transfer window. Respected Italian journalist GDM claimed today that the Gunners had lodged a bid for Borussia Dortmund defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, while French media reported that agent of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot was supposed to hold meeting with Arsenal today.

Adrien Rabiot

PSG were drawn in a tough group with Barcelona and Ajax in the the Champions League. French radio station RMC and Beinsport managed to take an interview on him where he gave his opinions on PSG’s chances of qualifying from the group.

Furthermore he was asked to comment on PSG transfer and naturally questions on Rabiot and Edinson Cavani were asked.

When asked on Cavani, he said: “He is staying, that is for sure.” 

And asked about Rabiot, he added:  “We are in talks with clubs for him.”

RMC earlier reported that Arsenal are leading the race to sign him after Wenger personally called the midfielder to convince him join the London club. PSG are demanding a fee in the region of €25m, but Arsenal are thought to have made an initial offer of €15m.

Likewise, Cavani (reported market value of €65m) was heavily linked with a move as well, more so, following the injury of striker Olivier Giroud. However, PSG president has put an end to all speculations surrounding Cavani, although there was no doubt from our end that he won’t leave PSG in the summer.

DONE DEAL: Manchester United confirm another transfer
Deal Close: Manchester United in advanced negotiation with Dortmund


  1. It’s a probability we could get Rabiot , not Canvani no chance , now if I was in Mr Wengers position —- put a solid bid in for Bony he is premiership tried and tested , and Louic Remy boy can he run hopefully straight in the arms of Arsene, give it a go, don’t forget lads we have Joel gotta keep his kettle boiling before he loses all confidence

  2. I don’t think Arsene Wenger will sign any forward again after signing Sanchez and especially CF he thinks we have sanogo Campbell Sanchez poldi and even Walcott who is also returning from injury all of them can play as CF in place of Giroud.As for DM we should be a bit optimistic bcos it seems the Rabiot deal will happen and even William Carvalho.

  3. Rabiot done deal for Roma carvahol going to man u arsenal cant sign anyone in or out of champs league let’s face it us gooners are made to suffer
