Arsene Wenger is in a stand-off with Arsenal’s board over transfer funds, and that will encourage Real Madrid in their pursuit of the revered manager ,The club’s foremost transfer target, Andrei Arshavin, is not certain to join the club after sources at Zenit St Petersburg said Arsenal’s initial offer for the player fell “well below” the Russian club’s valuation of 20million euros.
And to make things worst we are in danger of losing more players on a FREE, Just like Flamini.
Arsenal stars Theo Walcott and Robin Van Persie might both be FREE to leave Arsenal after both players contract talks hit a brick wall.
Van Persie was close to agreeing a new £80.000 a week deal with the club but the board “re-evaluating” the contract that was on the table. This has frustrated Van Persie and his agent as it was all agreed in principle. His agent is now demanding a showdown meeting with Ivan Gazidis.
Theo Walcott is another Arsenal player who is frustrated with the contract situation.A source close to Walcott said: “There is no doubt Theo is frustrated at the lack of action over a new deal.
“The club said talks would start in October because they wanted to see how Theo started the season.
“Theo accepted that because he has the utmost respect for Arsene Wenger. Most people would agree Theo was one of Arsenal’s best players until he picked up his latest shoulder injury.
“He was doing well for both his club and country but still nothing happened on the contract front.
“The fact is, he feels as if he’s being taken for granted at the moment, as if people simply expect him to sign a contract.”
Theo could buy himself out of the last year of his contract in May for £1million if the club do not offer him a new deal soon..
