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.
Another day, another Arsenal transfer stories with claims and counterclaims revealing Arsenal have agreed and submit mouth-watering deal for their long-term targets.
According to new reports making the rounds, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly keeping a very close tabls on his compatriot Antoine Griezmann situation at Atletico Madrid ahead of a summer move to the Emirates.
Back in the summer, it was reported that the Frenchman had spoken to the French international about a possible move to his side and now.
However, it has now been suggested that Griezmann could be more open to leave Atletico after their slump in form this season, with Diego Simeone’s side dropping as low as 6th in La Liga.
Manchester United have also been strongly linked with the 25-year-old in recent times, but Arsenal seem ready to provide competition for his signature.
Wenger is keen to add a world class forward to his ranks and is also looking at Torino front-man Andrea Belotti as a more realistic alternative, according to The Sun.
Still, the Italian is another player who may not come cheap, meaning Arsenal continue to monitor Griezmann’s situation at the Vicente Calderon.
Arsenal fans will be relieved to see their club showing ambition in the transfer market, particularly with the risk of star striker Alexis Sanchez leaving the club amid his ongoing row over a new contract.
