Arsenal Transfer News Roundup: Arsenal Make Bid For Mata

Hello everyone,

This been another day of transfer news, speculation, gossip and rumors surrounding the Gunners. There are a some interesting pieces of news, regarding potential transfers. Without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Make Bid For Mata

Mata... Gunners launch bid for his services

The biggest headline today which was first reported by TV reports back in Spain, and not by the Daily Mail, who say that they've the "Exclusive". Anyways, the reports are stating that the Gunners have made a bid of around 18 million pounds for Valencia's Juan Mata. Mata, is an attacking midfielder who plays mostly on the left. He's a quality player, who has excellent technique, pace, a good crosser and also very skillful. Basically, he's a quality player and I would be delighted if he were to join the Gunners. This, though, will ignite speculation that one of Fabregas or Nasri will be leaving the club.... hopefully, that's not the case.

Here's a video of Mata, displaying his talents last season:

Matuidi Wants To Join the Gunners

Matuidi.... wants to join the Gunners

A player that's he been linked, numerous times to sign for the Gunners. Reports are floating around stating that St. Etienne's Blaise Matudi has told Wenger of his desire to move to the Gunners. The report also states that Wenger is willing to pay 10 million pounds to sign him and not the 13 million pounds, that St. Etienne value the player at. Matudi is a physically imposing defensive midfielder, known for his combativeness and strong tackling. I think he would do well in the Premier League and with the Gunners, but I believe he's a bit too pricey at 13 million pounds.

Check out this stunning goal that he scored against Bordeaux:

Arsenal Interested In Vidal

Vidal.... interesting the Gunners

In a report by German newspaper, The Bild, they state that the Gunners are interested in signing Bayer Leverkusen star, Arturo Vidal. The Chilean international had an excellent season and is interesting many clubs, especially German giants Bayern Munich, who are very keen on acquiring him. He's valued at 15 million euros by his club. In my opinion, Vidal is a very gifted player, who's versatile and can play anywhere in midfield, has lots of skills and good movement. But I think, if he's going to move, it would be to Bayern Munich.

Link to the article, it's in German, I tried translating it, but it didn't really work out the way I wanted it to be:

Here's a video, displaying his talents:

What do you think? Are you excited by the Mata, Matuidi, and Vidal links? Do you think that either of them would be a quality signing for the Gunners?

Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

Yes I think these players really performed well last season,but can they come and cope in the Emirates and in the premireship,think that's a big question because we fans need intimidating players that will complement already existing players to lift trophies

I think they can mate. They're quality players, who could be excellent additions to the squad. They have the talent and skill to succeed with the Gunners and in the Premier League.

Cheers and take care,
