According to this source, it appears that Wenger is about to land a Dutch/Canadian youngster.
Arsenal are poised to land Feyenoord’s Jonathan De Guzman for £12million.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made his move for the tough-tackling midfielder, 20, who is known as the Dutch version of Owen Hargreaves.
And he snubbed the chance to play for Canada in order to make his debut for Holland’s Under-21 team in March.
He recently claimed: “My dream clubs are Arsenal and Barcelona. If clubs of that stature are interested in you then you cannot say no.
“I’m certainly open to interest from Arsenal and from what I hear Feyenoord are happy to hear from them as well.” (The Sun)
After losing Flamini and Silva, many have considered the north London outfit to be short of defensive central midfielders, and Guzman could ably fill this role. It appears that this target is another that David Moyes may well miss out on, as the Gunners seem to be winning this transfer battle. Would Arsenal fans rather have seen the likes of Barry or Alonso signing for the Emirates outfit?
