Arsenal transfer news on Negredo and Szalai

It seems that Negredo is being offered as a transfer by the main man from Sevilla. Jose MarĂ­a del Nido is in London since yesterday, and he is in contact with Arsenal, but the cost of his transfer plus a four and a half year contract request seems to suit Spurs more than us. A well built central striker at just under six feet in old money, and he certainly knows where the goal is, being top scorer for Sevilla.

Arsenal have NOT asked about Szalai from Mainz

There have been rumours linking Arsenal with a number of strikers before and during this current transfer window, but nothing concrete has happened yet, except for Barcelona president Sandro Rosell categorically stating that they will not sell David Villa. Arsenal fans must have been slightly worried, then, when stories appeared claiming that the Gunners had focused their attention on the less than household name of Adam Szalai from the German Bundesliga side Mainz.

Szalai is a 25-year old Hungarian striker. The 6ft 5in player has a decent scoring record for his club this season, with 11 goals from 20 league and cup games. He also has seven international goals from 14 games, but in previous seasons at Mainz his tally was underwhelming to say the least.
