Why Arsenal have not shocked fans with signing of West Ham star


Arsenal are reported to be in a shock move for West Ham United player Filipe Anderson but they failed to have an agreement with the London club over the deal.

The Telegraph claims that in a bid to strengthen the midfield, the Gunners’ manager Mikel Arteta is keen to land another midfielder with Filipe Anderson as one of the options the club is looking at.

Mikel Arteta is keen to add Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey to the club this term as well as Dani Ceballos but he will not mind adding another midfielder to have enough options for next season’s challenge.

Arsenal fans would have been shocked to hear of the announcement of a deal for Filipe Anderson but it is claimed that the loan deal bid tabled by the Gunners was rejected.

The London club are looking to cashing in on the player and will seek a permanent transfer because of their need to cash in on the player.

However, it is expected that the North London club will not pay much attention to the West Ham United player if they are able to land Dani Ceballos at the club for the coming season.

Dani Ceballos enjoyed his loan spell with Arsenal in the just-concluded season, and he seeks for a return that will only happen with the permission of his owners, Real Madrid.
