Another day goes by with more transfer news, gossip, rumors, speculation surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here's the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.
Arsenal Renew Interest in Jagielka
Jagielka...the Gunners renew their interest.
According to a report on the Daily Mail, Arsenal have renewed their interest in Everton's Phil Jagielka. The Gunners have long been interested in the English international central defender, and had a bid rejected last summer. The report states, that Everton are once again reluctant to sell and reportedly value Jagielka at an excess of £15 million.
In my opinion, Jagielka is a solid defender, but the Gunners are in need of a tall defender and, standing at less than six feet, Jagielka doesn't provide that, as well as being injury prone. Jagielka is a risky signing to make and not worth £15 million, in my opinion.

Arsenal Are Still Interested In Ricardo Alvarez
Alvarez....still being tracked by the Gunners
This saga keeps rumbling on, as the ever-reliable Young Guns Blog report that the Gunners are still interested in signing Velez's Ricardo Alvarez. The report also states that many other clubs are interested in the playmaker and that his value is so far the stumbling block for a potential transfer (€12 million). Alvarez, is a highly-rated young player, but will Wenger be willing to spend €12 million on him? Not so sure.

Clichy On the Verge of Signing for PSG?
Clichy...on the verge of joining PSG?
This interesting piece of news comes from a fellow Arsenal blog, Welcome To The Gunners Town, which states that Clichy is closing in on a move to PSG for around £10 million. This sounds very intriguing, but I'm not sure about it. As there are many reports filtering around, stating that Clichy is interesting two clubs, Liverpool and AS Roma, so the link to PSG is a surprising one. We'll hopefully know more in the next few days.
