Arsenal are readying a late bid to lure Lars Bender from Bayer Leverkusen to bolster the squad defensively. The German defensive midfielder is a vital player for Bayer, but they cannot resist the player from leaving if Arsenal make a convincing offer.
Arsenal chase Bundesliga Star Lars Bender To Strengthen The Squad
Arsene Wenger is behind the 26-year-old for a long time; SORRY! A very long time I should say. But, the French coach could not get a deal done in his previous attempts. The Gunners have not offered a firm deal for the player but were tracking him in every transfer window.
As per reports, Arsenal’s scouts are in Germany to watch the player. While Arsenal’s title rivals Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are filling all the holes in their squad to boost their title hopes, Arsene Wenger is missing out his targets one by one due to his transfer policies.
Chelsea and City are never hesitating to spend money while United are in need to rebuild their squad, so they are splashing the money on everyone they see. United is the club which is linked almost all the top players in the world.
Still Arsene Wenger is not ready to break the bank which already caused him the likes of Arturo Vidal, Morgan Schneiderlin, and Karim Benzema. With criticisms coming from every nuke and corner on the transfer policies of Arsene Wenger, it won’t surprise if Arsenal pull out a deal in the dying minutes at least to give the fans some better hope on the title push.
Lars bender made almost 3 successful tackles per game in Bundesliga last season and 3.2 interceptions every game. The qualities Arsenal need the most in order to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City for the title.
A club with the size of Arsenal is going without the League Title for more than a decade now which is very bad for their fans who keep on supporting the club even in the hardest times. They need the TITLE desperately and Arsene Wenger owes them one. So spending some more million for one of the finest defensive midfielders in the world won’t take anything.
