If you’re an Arsenal fan who likes to keep track of the ongoings of the transfer market then you’ll be aware of the links your club had to Celta Vigo striker Nolito during the summer window. The forward, also pursued by Barcelona, was mentioned in connection with satisfying the apparent need Arsene Wenger has for another frontman, though no deal came to fruition. He’s recently spoken about the rumours, suggesting that he was trying to keep it out as it wasn’t good to be distracted by such things. He continues to be linked with the Gunners as the January transfer window approaches. Meanwhile, speculation infers that Karim Benzema may be regretting having not moved to Arsenal in the summer. It’s believed he’s less than happy with life under Rafa Benitez at Real Madrid, and Wenger is on ‘red alert’ again as a result. Unlikely, but it’s too early to tell if this one’s got any legs.
