Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
After failing to secure move for Leicester City’s and England international Jamie Vardy, Arsenal was able to complete the signing of former Deportivo La Coruna forward Lucas Perez for a reported fee of £17.1 million.
Now, the Gunners are believed to be in the market of former club captain Cesc Fabregas who spent eight years with the North London club before he opt to join to Barcelona in 2011. The Spaniard reputation at the Emirates took a massive hit two years ago when he joined Chelsea our London rivals.
However, we’ve been fairly impressive to the start of the campaign this season, and our side still sit second in the league, finally looking like a team that is pushing for the Premier League crown after more than a decade.
The Gunners are light when it comes to creative central midfielders, with Santi Cazorla sidelined for three months with an ankle injury and Jack Wilshere spending the season on loan at Bournemouth. Though the North London side are looking to swoop in for the Chelsea man for a sensational switch back to the Emirates.
Despite starring in the Blues’ win at Manchester City on Saturday, the Spain midfielder hasn’t featured regularly for Antonio Conte’s side this season, making just two starts this term. The 29-year-old may consider a reunion as Wenger looks to bolster his midfield to challenge for the title as a temporary solution.
Thus, the report From Daily Express is suggesting that Fabregas is likely to be the subject of a cheeky bid from Arsenal in January, as Conte prefers N’golo Kante and Nemanja Matic over the Spaniard.
It would, of course, be a massive move and has several huge obstacles in front of it, with Chelsea unlikely to sell a player to a title rival.
