Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is sure to bring in reinforcements after the difficulties the Gunners had in the build-up play this season, and according to the media, the midfield section is where the Frenchman is looking to add quality, and if rumours are to be believed Barcelona’s Dutch midfielder Ibrahim Afellay might join the London side.
Afellay’s agent Rob Jansen has admitted the fact that the Dutch starlet has offers coming in from the English Premier League, where Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal have been linked with a move for him all summer long.
‘I expect Afellay to leave Barcelona on loan before the transfer window closes, Jansen told Dutch TV.
‘Talks are ongoing with several clubs. He has concrete interest from England. But it all depends on Barcelona, though. They decide where their players are going.’
Arsene Wenger’s next signing might be Yann M’Vila if the newspapers are correct, but Ibrahim Afellay is the next in line as the manager is still trying to find the reason why his midfield isn’t providing enough scoring chances for the likes of Podolski and Giroud, who despite having good performances failed to score due to the small amount of changes Arsenal has created.
