Following reports that Arsenal could sign more than one midfielder in the transfer window, it appears that, that has spewed fuel on whatever remains of the transfer rumors.
Arsenal are once more strongly linked with a Defensive Stalwart and are said to be readying a bid for the defensive midfielder.
It was earlier reported that Arsenal are in the running for his fellow Watford team mate Troy Deeney. However, it appears the club are casting their nets wide.
The Guardian reports that the Gunners are interested in Etienne Capoue. He was previously linked to the club – matter of factly, the fans clamored for him – prior to his move to Tottenham Hotspur.
He is one of the standout performers in the Watford team, where they continue to shock the League with surprising results against stronger opposition.
Although the manager has not confirmed the speculations, he is yet to admit that the club would sign Mohamed Elneny in coming days.
I don’t think this deal hold water and we just have to add it in the ever growing spurious stories making the rounds.
