Arsene Wenger keen on a new centre-back

Published 1 Comments

Arsene Wenger remains keen on capturing a new centre-back before the end of the summer transfer window, but there’s one thing potentially standing in the way of him landing his preferred target. Reports today suggest that a deal for AS Roma star Alessio Romagnoli will be pursued by Arsenal, but that the desired fee of £25m for his signature could prove to be a stumbling block. The sum has already halted AC Milan in their tracks - they were said to be close to agreeing terms over a move - and it’s yet unknown whether Wenger will consent to paying such a figure. In other news Rafael Benitez has quashed rumours that Karim Benzema will move to Arsenal, instead stating that he believed the Frenchman would stay with Real Madrid. Much has been made over the striker’s potential switch to north London, but it now looks like it’s a non-starter.
