Arsenal have stepped up their hunt for transfers especially after the criticism of the fans and also as the deadline day is on the brink. According to some reliable sources Arsenal have lodged in a bid for the midfielder Josuha Guilavogui. Arsene Wenger was considering a move for the 22-year-old if he was unable to agree a deal with Newcastle for Yohan Cabaye.
According to The Express, Arsenal have lodged in an £8.5m offer for the St Etienne midfielder after losing out to their potential midfield signing Luis Gustavo. Arsenal yesterday agreed a deal for the free agent Flamini and now are looking in the pole position to sign Joshua Guilavogui.
The Ligue 1 side have already sold star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Borussia Dortmund for £11m but are understood to be in need of a further cash injection, and Guilavogui looks likely to be sacrificed.
Aooarently Joshua has impressed the critics tremendously and has been given comparisons to Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira. A powerful defensive midfielder with strong physical instintcs can be a perfect fit in Arsenal’s game play as he will be able to provide shield to the back four and as well as versatility by filling in the center back position. Now all eyes are on Arsene Wenger, whether he accelerates to fill in to his slightly vulnerable squad by adding depth.
