"Wenger wants him and he wants to play for Arsenal" - Gunners set to announce yet another signing


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants Aleksandr Golovin to become his third summer signing.

The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates all summer.

And Sandor Varga, former agent of Arsenal player turned scout Oleg Luzhny, has confirmed that the Arsenal boss is now ready to make a move for the youngster.

"For Russia, the rise will be greater if Golovin goes to Arsenal," he told Sport Express.

The generation of Arshavin and Zhirkov played in England [previously].

"Golovin has an interest for Arsenal, money is not a problem.

"I think Wenger will pay £10m - £15m for him.

"The leaders of Arsenal forced him to spend money this summer [and] gave him £100m [to spend] on transfers.

"And Wenger, on the contrary, does not want to buy anyone at that price, it is [more] interesting to [him to] find [young] talent and bring to perfection.

"Coaches, usually all, beat out money from the bosses on transfers, and Wenger works differently."
