Arsenal transfer news: Target demands hefty salary while youngster set for exit

Posted by

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will be expected to add more new faces to his squad this summer, but much is likely to be on hold until after Euro 2016.

However, there have been developments and here are the latest transfer musings concerning the Gunners…

Morata wants £6m-per-year deal

As he looks set to leave Juventus this summer, Alvaro Morata has reportedly insisted that he wants a contract worth £6m-per-year.

Real Madrid will exercise the buy-back clause in his contract with the Turin giants, but will look to sell him on for a profit. In turn, La Gazzetta dello Sport have revealed that it will cost Arsenal a significant price to land their target.

Wenger needs a new striker that can deliver goals consistently next season, and although Morata arguably fits the bill, it remains to be seen whether or not the Frenchman deems him worthy of the numbers being touted.

Lewandowski to consider Premier League offers

According to The Daily Mail, the Bayern Munich striker is growing increasingly frustrated with life in Germany and wants a move this summer.

The likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City have all been linked with a move, while Real Madrid remain a threat too given the player’s desire to play for the Spanish giants.

It’s claimed that might not happen this year though, which in turn has opened up the chances of one of the Premier League club’s swooping.

Gunners set to lose talented youngster

Defender Isaac Hayden could be set for the exit door at the Emirates, as according to West London Sport, QPR are keen on signing him.

The 21-year-old has made just two first team appearances for Arsenal, and spent last season on loan at Hull City in his bid to gain experience.

If he isn’t able to break into the Gunners line-up any time soon, then the club could very well decide to listen to offers and allow him to leave.

Szczesny to stay with Roma

Arsenal are reportedly set to allow the Polish shot-stopper to stay in the Italian capital for another season on loan, after a successful campaign just gone.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport add that his wage demands could be an issue, with the Gunners not intending on paying part of his salary like last year.
