According to reports in Spain, Arsenal are set to ‘accelerate’ a move for Hector Moreno who is currently sidelined with a thigh injury.
The PSV defender is mostly likely a player you know, perhaps from his horror tackle that crippled Luke Shaw, or maybe it was his other Shawcross-esque assault on Oussama Tannane that first brought him to your attention.
Regardless, he is now just another in a long, long, long line of central defenders Arsenal are trying to sign.
If we even land 5% of our reported targets we’ll have to sell half the squad to fit them all in.
A rumour that started in El Confidencial and then spread to other sites, the 28-year-old is currently sidelined with a thigh problem he is expected to recover from within five days.
Being injured in pre-season certainly gives him a hint of Arsenal DNA. Recovering after five days, however, means he’s clearly not at all suited for the Gunners.
I very much doubt Arsenal have accelerated anything in this rumour.
