When it is June, there are usually so many transfer rumours linking players to various clubs but unfortunately, there are only but a few media outlets that are considered reliable and one of those is Sky sports. This is why Arsenal fans need to take serious the rumours linking Arsenal to the signing of Manchester United and Netherlands international defender Daley blind.
According to SkySports, the Dutchman is a target for Arsenal and curiously, the rumour is rated 4.3 out of a possible 5 to sign for Arsenal this summer which is probably an indication that Skysports have a strong believe that the player could be signing for Arsenal. And with Kieran Gibbs likely to leave Arsenal this summer, signing Blind will make perfect sense.
Blind played most in the centre back position for United last season but he is primarily a left back which makes it interesting from the Arsenal point of view. Arsenal currently need a centre back and if Gibbs leaves, a left back will be required as well and knowing Wenger, he is unlikely to spend money on two defensive stars.
Blind will be the type of signing Wenger will make. He is versatile and likely to be available on the cheap. And with Mourinho now at United, the Dutchman is likely to be surplus to requirement. Especially with the club recently signing Eric Bertrand Bailly. Whether Mourinho will let Blind join a rival is another ball game.
