Arsenal’s £12.8m bid on hold & Wenger’s transfer battle for French ace – Best of AFC

It’s all gone rather quiet at Arsenal in the past seven days wouldn’t you say? The flurry of transfer activity that expected to follow the acquisition of German international Lukas Podolski has failed to transpire whilst Robin Van Persie’s contract situation has yet to be resolved. You could forgive the Gunners support for being slightly anxious as they enter a crucial period of the summer. Having lost out on Belgian duo Eden Hazard and Jan Vertonghen to their London rivals the need for Arsene Wenger to nail his primary targets has become all the more imperative. His pursuit of French midfielder Yann M’Vila will certainly be affected by the imminent European Championships with the fear that interest will soar in conjuncture with his price tag should he perform well in Poland and Ukraine. It will certainly be a testing time for Wenger as he sweats over Van Persie’s future remains unclear whilst aiming to avoid a repeat of last years last ditch scraping of the recruitment barrel. Who’d be a football manager?

This week on FFC does the Wenger need to merciless in the trimming of his squad and which French midfielder are Arsenal facing a transfer battle  for this summer?
