Striker Deal Already Done for Arsenal.

Another statement from Lothar Matthaus has it that Arsene Wenger has secured the signing of Josip Drmic.

In recent weeks, the football journalist revealed the Nurnberg striker will be making a permanent move to Arsenal at the end of this season, backing it up with the news that his (Josip's) wife was searching for an apartment in London in preparation for the switch.

Drmic at that time denied such saying he does not even have a girlfriend not to talk of being married. Despite the Swiss international's claims, Matthaus still maintains his stand as he claims he had made his findings and come to a reliable conclusion. The journalist also insisted the 21-year old star has had a girlfriend for the past nine months.

“Although now Dortmund, Gladbach and Leverkusen all have an interest. I’m saying: Josip Drmic will switch to Arsenal, he said.

“I made a mistake. I said his wife was already looking for apartments. The fact is that this is his girlfriend. Drmic has had a girlfriend for nine months. She has lived five or six months with him in Nuremberg.

“Look, if a journalist hears something, he researched and wrote that then it's true. I’m kind of a journalist and have heard the rumour of a move to Arsenal. I then found out that this is true.”

If this is genuine then it is a great step by Wenger and Arsenal. It is good to always make early transfer deals so that all the new recruits will blend into the team before the fresh season kicks off. This is also a way of avoiding competition from rival teams who can spend any amount on a player they know is being targeted by another team.
