Arsene To Launch £30m Double Bid After Securing Sanchez Signing

By on July 4, 2014

Arsene Wenger is ready to make a £30m double swoop on Southampton for defender Dejan Lovren and midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin, according to reports today, but only after he’s secured the signing of Alexis Sanchez.

Speculation is intensifying that we’re closing in on the signing of Sanchez from Barcelona, with a formal bid understood to have been made and the 25-year-old is believed to favour a move to London over other options such as Liverpool.

We also brought you the news earlier that the Chilean attacker’s agent started to follow Arsenal and several of our players on Twitter last night, which has been taken as another hint that the player is on his way to the Emirates.

Obviously nothing is official just yet but it appears we are closing in on Sanchez and Goal claim that once that deal is tied up, Arsene will then launch a £30m double swoop on Southampton.

The boss is on the look-out for a defensive midfielder to replace Mikel Arteta as well as a replacement for Thomas Vermaelen, with the skipper expected to leave this summer, and Dejan Lovren and Morgan Schneiderlin have emerged as top targets.

Liverpool have also been strongly linked with Lovren but the report suggests that we will rival the Merseysiders for the Croatian international after he handed in a transfer request in order to force a move to a Champions League club.

The 24-year-old was hugely impressive during his debut season in the Premier League after making the move to St Mary’s last summer, and I think he’d be a great replacement for Vermaelen. However, he’s unlikely to split up the Mertesacker-Koscielny partnership, so would he be happy to come to us and be third choice?

The second Southampton player of interest is Schneiderlin and I’ve made my feelings on this perfectly clear in recent weeks. I think he’d be an excellent addition and I’d go for him above the likes of Khedira or Bender due to the fact he’s got experience in the Premier League.

There weren’t many better defensive midfielders in England last season and he’d be the perfect foil for Ramsey and Wilshere, so I’d love to see the Frenchman come to the club. Schneiderlin has also made it clear he wants to leave in search of Champions League football, and it looks like we’re ready to offer him exactly that.

If we could wrap up the signings of Sanchez, Debuchy, Lovren and Schneiderlin this summer, as well as a back-up goalkeeper, we’ll be in excellent shape for next season. Fingers crossed the boss can pull it off….

    how about buying Schneiderlin and then loaning Southampton Joel Campbell for the season they take care of their young players and would bring the best out of him and we get him back next season

    30m for the Saints pair? No chance, 45m-50m at least.

      Actually no, since they’re not brittish they’ll go for a lot less money.

        Saints do not want to sell so price goes up, there are reports that Liverpool have already offered 20m for Lovren. So can’t see Arsenal getting both for 30m. Time will tell!

    If another centre back comes in, performs in training, gets a chance and takes it then they will absolutely split up the Koscielny/Mertesacker partnership. If they are good enough then they will play. First team places should not be set in stone, and I see no reason why an ambitious CB would not look at Koscielny and Mertesacker and think that they could get in ahead of one of them.

    There’s always this talk about players coming in and sitting on the bench, but there’s no reason why this should be the case. As Brian Clough used to say to his players, “You are in this team until I find someone better.”

    Roy – Saints do not take players on loan. What is the point of developing another club’s young player?

    Well i belive that things are getting better with the trophy we won last season. I believe in players like Sanchez, Lovren, Loic, Schneiderlin, DeBuchy & Khedira. Because they will help boost our poor G.P in every matches & who knows, we may end up winning @least 2 out of the four 4 throphies. Mark my word!… Am a loyal fan.
