Arsenal to move for Real Madrid midfielder
Arsenal are weighing up a January bid for out-of-favour Real Madrid midfielder Asier Illarramendi, according to Fichajes.net.
The Gunners are keen to add to their midfield options when the transfer window re-opens, having missed out on a number of top targets in that position during the summer.
After missing out on Sami Khedira, Arsene Wenger now seems keen on his Madrid team-mate Illarramendi, who does not seem to be part of Carlo Ancelotti’s first-team plans.
