Bendtner to Leave – Mata Closer to Signing & Jagielka Increased Offer

Another day of excitement for Arsenal in the transfer market without anything actually happening!

Mata has been reported to have tied his colours to the Arsenal mast and rejected Harry Redknapp’s overtures, and nobody actually blames him.  Spurs have had their one season In the Champions League, the DVD Box Set has been produced to keep the fans sweet, whilst Arsenal with the acquisition of players like Mata and keeping van Persie fit will challenge for the title next season.

Reports in The Times state that we are going to increase our offer for Jagielka to £13M, this might be more acceptable to Everton, but I still question whether Jagielka is the man for us.

There have been more links with Benzema.  It is rumoured that Real Madrid are interested in Tevez and would need to clear out a few players to raise the funds and the wages. The fee is thought to be around £25M for the France striker.  This is a player who Wenger rates highly and it could be another Henry situation, whereby his move from France was not a success and Wenger moves in to offer him an escape route.

On the departure front despite the many announcements that Eboue has agreed terms with Galatasaray, there has been no announcement from wither club or player, but a £4m deal has been mentioned in several places.

Antoher player about to leave is our Denmark striker Niklas Bendtner who has been excused from playing a part in our pre-season friendlies to look for another club.  Both the Metro and Correio da Manhã have stated that Bendtner is in Portugal and will be unveiled as a Sporting Lisbon player.  The fee thought to be In the region of £9M.  Bentdner has been slated by many, but we must also ask ourselves was he really given the chance to play in his favourite position, a central striker? Too often he as asked to play out on the wing, when his threat was more aerial and holding the ball.

Another want-away star is left kicking his heals training with the reserves and youth team, this is our illustrious and respectful captain who is also nursing an injury.  His beloved Barcelona are not prepared to meet the asking price £35M-£40M.  Barcelona are digging in their heals because Arsenal signed Cesc from Barcelona for a nominal fee they are of the opinion that they do not have to pay the asking price. Arsenal fans are resigned to losing Cesc this summer, we just want it sorted out sooner rather than later.

Arsenal’s big week-end is just two days away and Arsenal fans would love to see Mata and a defender unveiled on Saturday before the tournament starts.
