Arsene Wenger wants to bring highly rated youngsters to the Emirates.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to make summer moves to bring in young English trio Joe Hart, Jack Rodwell and Micah Richards to the Emirates. The Frenchman has revealed that he is already in talks to bring in new players and has been strongly linked with a number of potential signings that he hopes will bring an end to a five season silverware drought.
Wenger is keen to bring in English players to help cope with the ‘homegrown’ ruling set to come into operation in the next season. All three targets would pass the guidelines brought in by the Premier League and the trio help to resolve ‘problem’ areas in the Gunners squad.
Joe Hart, currently on loan at Birmingham City, is much admired by Wenger and the Arsenal boss is keen to bring in new goalkeeping options after witnessing far too many blunders by current first choice Manuel Almunia.
Everton teenager Jack Rodwell is also a target for the north London side who feel the young midfielder has great potential and could be an ideal foil for Cesc Fabregas in the centre of the Emirates midfield. Manchester City defender Micah Richards had been linked with a move to Arsenal a couple of years ago and is apparently reappeared on the Wenger radar and given the relative lack of first team opportunities for the English International may spark a renewed attempt to sign the 21 year old.
