Emirates boss lines up move for Irish international.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have assured their supporters that striker Kevin Doyle will remain with the club despite a possible £10million bid from Arsenal.
The Republic of Ireland international came to Wolves last summer from Reading for the club record fee of £6.5m and has helped the club avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.
Aston Villa, Everton and Fulham are all interested in the 26-year-old, but Wolves executive Jez Moxey is adamant that the club have no interest in selling Doyle this summer.
“What we want to do is to continue to improve the squad and improve the team,” Moxey told The Mirror.
“That will take a lot of time and will call for continuing investment in the squad.
“It will also mean that we will try to keep our very best players, not sell them.” (Goal.com)
Arsene Wenger is reportedly looking at a number of attacking options but it seems quite a stretch that the Emirates boss would be looking at snapping up Irish international Kevin Doyle. There is no denying that the 26 year old has a great deal of talent its just that the club appears more likely to invest in a hold up man rather than a speedy nippy striker like the former Reading man.
Marouane Chamakh seems on his way to Arsenal and some reports suggest that the Gunners manager won’t stop there as he looks to bring in an array of talents to help bring an end to a five year spell without a trophy. There appears to be a number of defensive options linked with a move to the club also and Wenger has been promised a large sum of money to help rebuild a team that appears continuously in a period of transition.
Fans of the club appear anxious to see the Frenchman finally splash the cash, something Wenger usually avoids doing, preferring instead to sign players who he can build and mould rather than signing an established name.
