Arsenal are close to finally signing long time target with fresh reports of a deal to be completed next week.
Arsenal are set to steal Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin.
According to reports, Saints midfield power-house Morgan Schneiderlin has revealed that he expects to complete a move to a new club in the coming days amid talks he’s signing for Arsenal.
The Saints midfielder have been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal, with Schneiderlin himself reportedly making it clear he wants to leave the Saint Mary’s stadium this summer.
The 25-year-old Frenchman has a £24.2million buyout clause slapped on his head by Southampton; with Manchester United and Chelsea also keen for his services.
The report also says that Arsenal are ahead in the race for his signature with bookmakers slashing odds on him moving to the Emirates stadium this summer.
‘Talks are on going and should be completed in the coming days,’ Schneiderlin told the French media.
‘I hope that it will occur before pre-season begins next week.”
