Fee Agreed, Medical Done, But Arsenal Struggling To Agree Terms With Target

By on August 25, 2014

Arsenal are in danger of missing out on the signing of Kostas Manolas with reports today claiming that we’re struggling to agree personal terms with the defender.

Arsene Wenger has made no secret of the fact he’s on the look-out for a centre-back to replace Thomas Vermaelen after selling the Belgian international to Barcelona.

Manolas emerged as a key target earlier this month and it looked like we could be closing in on his signature after agreeing an £8m fee with Olympiakos and it’s understood the player has already completed his medical in anticipation of a move to the Emirates.

However, Goal claim that despite a fee being agreed and the medical being done, we could miss out on the Greek international’s signature as we’re struggling to agree personal terms with the player.

It’s not clear exactly how much Manolas is looking for or what we’ve offered him so far, but the report states that we’re ‘far apart’ in the negotiations, so it remains to be seen whether we’ll be able to find an agreement.

With our move stalling, Manolas could now be off to Italy with reports suggesting that Roma have identified the 24-year-old as a potential replacement for Mehdi Benatia.

Hopefully we’ll be able to find a breakthrough as Manolas would be an excellent addition and give us some real depth at the back, but we’ll have to see how things develop over the coming week.

    WE SHOULD BE LOOKING TO BUY THE LIKES OF DI MARIA AND TRANSFORM THE TEAM AS WITH OZIL LAST YEAR .IT WOULD ALSO KICK THE TRANSFERE STUFFING OUT OF UNITED .
    TO MUCH DEADWOOD AND WEADY PLAYERS LIKE GIROULD, WILSHIRE,WHO LOSE OUT FAR TO EASILY .

    What annoys me most is wenger fails to use them the way the are bought from their club,sanchez will never perform until wenger changes his wing same with ozil too, both should swap . sanchez should play him where cazorla plays,use ozil where sanchez plays then they will enjoy their game of play. To confirm this aginst Everton ozil changed to the right and the goal came,he struggles on the left wing,And has for Manolas.Mr wenger find out player but never buy them,I pray he does not regret this..Buy a Strong Defensive midfielder with a high wor rate like Gustavo,Tiote that can Mark very well then Ozil,ramsey will enjoy his game.And please buy that Rabiot he his a future player,very strong on the ball..Gerci from Torino will be a perfect stricker for Us or loan Falcao.Please I beg u make use of my ideas.

    Wenger should stop decieving himself thinking he’s decieving the fans,the gospel truth is wenger isn’t ready for trophy I can bet he won’t get a draw whenever he plays chelsea coz the squad isn’t complete yet and we all know.
