Bender on Arsenal's radar
Bayer Leverkusen defensive midfielder Lars Bender is still on Arsenal’s radar according to Daily Express.
Last season, Leverkusen rejected a £15 million bid from the Gunners and this time Wenger is planning to make a new improved offer of £21 million.
Arsene Wenger is eyeing Bender as a replacement of Mikel Arteta who is 32-year-old. While Bender is 25-year-old and can play 4-5 years easily.
The German midfielder played 35 games for the Bundesliga side last season.
New right back targeted
Wenger have targeted another player who can replace Bacary Sagna next season. Newcastle United right-back Mathieu Debuchy is the latest right back linked with the Emirates side.
Arsenal were strongly linked with Toulouse full back Serge Aurier but difficulties in signing him have diverted their attention to a Debuchy .
Debuchy, 28, played 29 games for the Magpies last season and currently helping France in the World Cup.
Update on Balotelli
Talksport reported that AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli will be moving to Emirates as his agent has claimed that Balotelli is ready for a move.
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani recently said that he is not ready to sell Balotelli as he is irreplaceable at the Sani Siro.
The Italian who failed to help his team to qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup will be a great addition to Arsenal.
