Hot on the heels of one supposedly nailed on certain raid for a transfer smashing record fee, we have a second! This name, like Ben Arfa, has been circulated in north London pubs in football conversations ad infinitum!
The potential capture of Dinamo Zagreb midfield ace Luka Modric by Arsenal appears to be back on.
Apparently Arsene Wenger is keen to add more talent to his squad, and wants players who have already have some experience so as to more adequately cope with high pressure situations such as in recent weeks when Arsenal have fallen away after looking like potential Premier and Champions League challengers (The Guardian)
Again, another wise acquisition, although in my opinion not in the same league as Ben Arfa and therefore less a less valid reason to spend so much cash. Chelsea are also sniffing around but without Jose they may not appear such an inviting prospect and Arsenal seem to have the upper hand in terms of long term prospects.
