Arsenal are interested in signing Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez, according to reports. Wenger is reportedly in search of a top midfielder this summer and has been linked with no less than a dozen of them this season.
And now, according to Spanish Publication Mundo Deportivo via Daily Mail , Arsenal are prepared to table an official offer for Saul this summer.
The midfielder was reportedly close to joining Arsenal last winter transfer window but due to an injury to one of the Spanish club’s key man, Atletico pulled out of the deal.
However, his form since the beginning of the year has been superb and this has forced Wenger to consider tabling an offer for the midfielder when the summer transfer window opens in July.
However, Atletico Madrid manager Simeone is now determined to keep hold of the midfielder and he is confident the player will snub Arsenal’s interest to stay at the Vincente Calderon.
“We are in a situation with young players, very young, with a great present and an even better future, all based on their day to day work,” Simeone said. “Saul has a very good present and the best thing for him is to stay away from all the talk about him. I am not afraid he will move to another team.”
Saul is a gradually developing into a top midfielder at the Spanish club and could now think twice before deciding on his future.
