Arsenal Transfer Talk: Are Negredo and Muller Potential Signings for Arsenal?
With Robin van Persie's time at Arsenal almost up, the club has been linked with a host of top European attackers as the media speculates on who will replace the Dutchman.
It is not yet known whether or not manager Arsene Wenger will have the funds from van Persie's sale to spend, with the club having already splashed over £20 million on Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, both forwards.
But the rumours are unlikely to cease until Wenger publicly states that Arsenal's spending is done, and over the past couple of days, several interesting links have emerged.
Having already linked Arsenal with Fernando Llorente, AS (h/t Daily Star) gives Sevilla's striker Alvaro Negredo as a possible alternative should the Gunners be priced out of a move for Atletico Bilbao's centre forward.
Negredo has scored six goals for his country in 12 appearances, and at times seemed to be Spain's No. 1 choice in attack at the European Championships.
Last season, the 6'1" striker struck 14 times in La Liga, down on his tally of 20 the previous season, and some at the club acknowledge that an exit this summer is possible.
In a report that stretches the boundaries of belief even further, Thomas Muller broaches the topic of leaving Bayern Munuch, according to Bild (h/t Sportsworldreport.com). Wenger has spoken highly of Muller's abilities in the past, so could Arsenal go after him?
The report plays upon what many Bayern Munich fans have recently come to fear—that their young striker would consider moving to new pastures if his situation at the club were to become unsatisfactory.
However, Muller quickly sought to squash rumours over a potential exit yesterday.
"I have absolutely no intention to leave at the moment. I'm a Bayern player through and through, and this will not change," Muller is attributed as saying to Bild (h/t Goal.com).
Indeed, many fans of Arsenal will remain cautious over these tabloid rumours in the coming weeks, at least until something concrete comes along.
