Arsenal fans might be in for another pleasant surprise if a speculation from renowned agent Muzzi Ozcan about the imminent arrival of another marquee signing is anything to go by.
According to Ozcan, Arsenal are close to completing the “signing of the season”. However, the agent refused to give further details as to the player involved.
Arsenal have recently been linked with big name players including Angel Di-Maria, Mario Gotze, Karim Benzema, Aturo Vidal and Gonzalo Higuain; and one can only wonder which could have the “Sanchez” effect on the squad if the signing were to perfectly fit Ozcan’s description.
Before Sanchez’s £35m arrival, Arsenal had splashed a record £42million to land German International Mesut Ozil the season before, and supporters would be expecting a player of similar caliber following Ozcan’s revelation.
Ozcan, who helped broker Slaven Billic’s move to West Ham, has strong links to the Bundesliga; and this may suggest that Gotze might be heading to the Emirates Stadium following Ozcan’s Bundesliga connections.
Arguably, of all the names linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, only Benzema, Di-Maria and Vidal so far adequately fits the “signing of the season” bill.
It remains however to be seen, who Ozcan actually is referring to. But this is one news that will most definitely get Arsenal supporters anxiously excited while expecting a successful campaign next season.
