Arsenal have finally been cleared to complete the signing of Russian sensational winger this summer. twitter
This report is according to the Metro, who claim the Gunner can now complete the signing of the Real Madrid winger Dennis Cheryshev, with the Spanish giants now resigned to letting the star exit the Bernabue this summer.
The 24-year-old Russian international is deemed surplus to requirements at Madrid and now reports claim the Los Blancos are now ready to let him leave the club permanently, after the speedster spent the 2014/2015 season on loan at Villarreal.
Cheryshev who has never really had his chance at Madrid, was a standout performer for the Submarines last season prompting interest from several top clubs across Europe, with Arsenal and Liverpool reported as the two top Premier League clubs registered with an interest for the attacker.
Arsenal where recently hit by the news of Jack Wilshere’s injury and are reportedly looking at bringing in another attacker to play on the wings as the Gunners are currently stuffed with options in central midfield.
Arsene Wenger plans to utilise Theo Walcott in a more centralised position this season, meaning there would be space to add a back-up winger to support Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – pushing Aaron Ramsey, who has played a number of games on the flanks, back to his natural central midfield position.
