After signing Mateo Kovacic at Real Madrid of La Liga BBVA, manager Rafael Benitez is looking to off-load AsierI llarramendi, and Arsenal FC are interested.
Since the start of the summer transfer window, the Premier League franchise has been linked with the Spaniard and now that the La Liga side is overloaded with midfielders, Arsenal thinks that they can buy him cheap.
There were reports that manager Arsene Wenger had lost his interest in the player but reports are pouring in with the hint that it is not all over at Emirates Stadium and a move is on the cards.
Arsenal have been handing out the hints that they will be reinforcing the midfield and the strike. Though their potential buy of Karim Benzema bit the dust when the Frenchman signed a new contract at Los Blancos. However, Wenger is not letting Illarra deal end up with the same fate. It is expected that Premier League side will raise the bid on him in the next few day if not hours.
