Arsenal ready bid
Arsenal fans are understandably at sixes and sevens following their opening day Premier League loss to West Ham, but it appears Arsene Wenger is looking to allay their concerns by buying more bite for his midfield.
At least that’s what Spanish sources say, with newspaper Marca claiming that Sevilla are worried about an imminent €30million bid from the Gunners for their star midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak.
There’s been plenty said on the idea that the Poland international will move to the Emirates Stadium in the coming weeks, and Arsenal’s 2-0 loss to West Ham might just encourage Wenger to push a move across the line.
Elsewhere club legend Jens Lehmann has backed Petr Cech to recover after his nightmare Premier League start for Arsenal, insisting that he will be determined to get back on track because former club Chelsea disappointed him by relegating him to the bench.
Cech was at fault for both of West Ham’s goals, but will have a chance to make amends when Arsenal face Crystal Palace this weekend. Alan Pardew’s outfit are coming off of a composed victory over Norwich City, and the home advantage should make it an interesting tie.
Palermo for Campbell
Lastly Costa Rica international Joel Campbell might well have reached the end of his career in north London, with Serie A side Palermo interested in striking a deal for him.
The striker impressed at the World Cup last summer but hasn’t really been given a chance in Wenger’s fold since. It’s thought the Gunners boss wants to recoup at least £7.1m from his sale.
