Arsenal target Pogba and Kondogbia

by Kevin Coleman

After getting rebuffed on their £10million offer for Yohan Cabaye yesterday, the bidding wheels are in overdrive at the Emirates as the Gunners look to secure at least one new signing before the end of the transfer window.

The first target is believed to be former Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba. After leaving the club rather unceremoniously, Pogba has been apart of the unbeatable Juventus side that has won back-to-back Serie A titles.

The Frenhman was named the U-20 World Cup player of the championship this summer, where he captained the side to glory.

Arsenal’s second target is reported to be fellow French midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia. The 6″3 20-year-old would bring some much needed toughness to the middle of Arsenal’s field, and he can also flex back to centre half or left back.

Along with Pogba, the Sevilla player was in the successful France U-20 side this summer.

However coach Unai Emery hinted that a large fee will only tempt them into selling the player.

“I have spoken with the president (about Kondogbia) and only a big money offer changes that idea.”
