Arsenal Latest Including David Villa And Arsene Exit Rumours

It’s already 26th of January and Arsenal are yet to make their first signing in the winter market. With so many players been linked with the Gunners daily it is a shame that almost all of them were/are mere rumours. One player who has been strongly linked with a move to North London is Barcelona forward David Villa. After initially ruling out Villa’s move the Catalans were willing to move forward with the deal if they receive anything above £10M. 

However it now appears that Arsenal will not be making move for the Spanish International. Arsene Wenger in his latest interview pointed out that there has not been any formal bids for the player and also added that is the same case for the recently linked Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels 

He said: “We have been linked with David Villa, like Chelsea, but there’s nothing concrete there. We are not on the case.”

On Hummels, the Gunners boss said: “No, I can’t imagine Dortmund selling their defenders in the middle of the season anyway and we have not made any approach there.”


Another news that has hit the transfer bell is that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will leave North London and could join German outfit Schalke. However, Wenger whose current contract runs till the end of next season has ruled out a move to the Bundesliga. Talking on the issue, he said:

“I am totally committed to this club. The Bundesliga is a very interesting championship, but I think the Premier League is a better one. 

“What I worry about is getting the players who have been injured back fit, to get the players who play for this club to perform at full potential. 

“If we perform at full potential we cannot expect any miracle from outside, we want to make things happen inside. If someone else can strengthen our squad, we will do it of course. But we have the resources inside to do well.”
