Gunners to sign Rob Holding
Transfer rumours sparked new lines for bookmakers as Bolton defender Rob Holding is in high demand in North London. He is just one In the mix for new players on Arsenals side. Both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the player. It is believed that the players preferred destination is The Emirates, and Wenger is lining up a bid to tempt him to join his squad. The fee is supposed to be around 1.2 million plus add-ons for the 20-year-old.
Spurs are in the market for a young upcoming defender and hope they manage to secure bargains like Eric Diar or Dele Alli again during the transfer window. It looks like Wenger has taken notice of the success Spurs are having with this policy and he aims to copy it for the Gunners.
It is not known if Holding does sign for Arsenal if he makes the first team squad straight away. Wenger may want to send the defender out on loan first to get some experience in the English top division, before throwing him into the deep end.
Holding players for the England U21 squad and is now in Toulon competing with the national team. He is expected to make his debut against Guinea.
Spurs should have finished above Arsenal for the first time in the Premier League history this season. A poor finish enabled the Gunners to catch them and ended up finishing one point above their North London Rivals. The gap is closing fast and with Spurs having the youngest squad in the league, they should improve further next season. Arsenal is going to need to make some changes if they are going to compete for the title. They need a new striker, and they have to sort out their defense which leaked vital goals last campaign. The mentality is also a problem with many players thinking it is acceptable for the Gunners to finish in the top four but never win the title. I certainly won’t be looking for the best bet offers to put on them achieving it, especially with Pep Guardiola and Mourinho back in the Premier League.
There is no better manager to help bring through young English talent like Mauricio Pochettino. The current England Team going to the Euro’s 2016 core is made up of five young Spurs players. These are Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Eric Dier, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose. With these players in the team, it might be worth a search for the best free bet offers for England to Finally Win The Euros for the first time.
If both clubs from North London bid the same amount for the player it will be interesting to see which one he chooses. He will have less competition at Arsenal, but Pochettino will no doubting making him achieve his true potential. The most likely destination is the Emirates, and it is the one of the best free bets to put on the transfer market.
