Arsenal are reportedly close to selling three strikers regarded as ‘deadwood’. The three are Bendtner, Chamakh and Park.
Bendtner is currently in Italy and has agreed terms with the Italian Champions Juventus, after Arsenal gave Bendtner permission to travel to Italy according to Sky Sports. A fee is yet to be agreed but the difficult part of personal terms has been agreed. If a fee can be agreed on today, he will have a medical later this afternoon and the deal could be announced tonight.
Chamakh is in talks with Turkish club Besiktas, who have been interested in the Morrocan striker for most of the summer. Chamakh is reportedly speaking to manager Samet Aybaba today. No fee or personal terms have been agreed as of yet.
Arsenal are also in talks with Spanish side Celta Vigo over the proposed sale of Chu Young Park. The South Korean joined Arsenal last summer on deadline day from Monaco but failed to get a chance at the Emirates and he has been looking for an exit all summer. No fee or personal terms have been agreed as of yet.
If Arsenal sell all three strikers then surely we need to make another attacking signing because at this rate we only would only have two real strikers – Giroud and Podolski.
Fernando Llorente and Edin Dzeko have been linked in recent days whilst Clint Dempsey remains as a long term attacking midfield/striker target. Of those three I’d love to see Llorente at Arsenal but its much more likely to be Dempsey!
