Arsenal ready to splash cash on German star

Published 1 Comments

Arsene Wenger is said to be ready to address the issue of Arsenal being bereft of midfield muscle by paying between 25 and 30 million euros for Lars Bender. As reported in Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo Wenger has retained an interest in the German, who can serve either as a holding player or a defender, but will face stiff competition from Barcelona if he doesn’t act before their transfer ban ends at the beginning of 2016. Meanwhile Wenger has revealed that summer signing Alexis Sanchez really wanted his move to the Emirates Stadium despite having offers from other clubs on the table. The Chile international has been sensational since arriving from Barcelona, but things could have been different if the attacker had opted to push for a transfer elsewhere.
