Another day of transfer news, gossip, rumors, speculation surrounding the Gunners comes upon us. There isn't much transfer news today, but there are some interesting headlines. Without further ado, here's the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Make Contact With Taarabt

Taarabt claims the Gunners and Chelsea have contacted him

Today, QPR star Adel Taarabt claimed that the Gunners and Chelsea have made contact with him and that they're both interested in signing him. Taarabt also sensationally claimed that Arsenal are lining him up as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas, and also states that QPR value him at 10 million pounds.

Taarabt is a talented and skillful player, but is he a good replacement for Fabregas? In my opinion, he definitely isn't. He's also a player known for having attitude problems, which has seen him fall out with former managers at Tottenham and with the Moroccan national side. I don't recommend him as a potential signing for the Gunners.

Miyaichi On the Verge of Resigning for Second Loan Stint At Feyenoord

Miyaichi is on the verge of signing on for a second loan spell with Feyenoord

Reports are claiming that Arsenal's Japanese rising star, Ryo Miyaichi, is on the verge of re-signing for Feyenoord for a second loan spell with the club. Miyaichi had an impressive loan spell with Feyenoord where he's become a fan-favorite.

Miyaichi has a bright future ahead of him and I believe that a second loan spell would benefit him greatly; he needs all the match experience that he can get.

What do you think? Do you want to see Taarabt as a Gunner? Do you agree that Miyaichi should have another loan stint? Please share your thoughts and opinions.
