Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger seems to be making the most out of the cash-strapped Spanish football by making some shrewd business this summer.
Arsenal have been recently rumored to have completed the deals involving Santi Cazorla from Malaga and Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid. Malaga are facing a severe financial crisis presently and are likely to undergo a change in ownership. Facing debts upto £40m, the La Liga side would be tempted into selling their star midfielder to Arsenal for a fee less than the reported £17m.
Meanwhile, Madrid are also looking to clear the deadwoods to make more funds available for the signing of Luka Modric which is expected to cost them close to £30m. Nuri Sahin, after managing just 10 appearances in the last season for Los Blancos, is destined to leave the Bernabeu after Jose Mourinho urged the player to consider his options.
The Turkish young star is expected to come for cheap although Arsene Wenger is looking at a loan arrangement with the reigning Spanish champions. Le Professor’s knack to invest wisely and never overspend is clearly evident from his latest targets as he has been targeting players who could be bargained into a sum which would be steal as far as the Gunners’ are concerned.
