Rob Holding to join from Bolton – Arsenal are said to have had a bid accepted by the league one club side Bolton Wanderers for their highly rated centre back Rob Holding. Holding was one of the best defenders in the Championship last season. Despite Bolton’s relegation, he was voted in the championship team of the year and was named Bolton’s best player. Just 20, Wenger is said to see him as one for the future. He will reportedly arrive London Colney for medical this week.
David Ospina to Beskitas – According to various reports, Arsenal second choice goalkeeper for last season is set to leave the club this summer. The Colombian is said to be tired of Arsenal fans taking on him and he been only but just a second choice behind Petr Cech. Beskitas have openly chased the South American and judging by reports, we believe it is a matter of when and not if this deal will be completed.
Ricardo Rodriguez – Although the Switzerland international’s release clause has now expired, Arsenal are said to still be very much keen on signing him. It is reported that Arsenal deal makers are confident they can get a deal done for less than the 21 million release clause when htye have waited it out.
