Arsenal vs Liverpool in the Transfer Market


On first look, Arsenal and Liverpool don’t have many similarities in terms of what they are searching for this coming transfer window, but the fact is, they are chasing the same places. Check this out.

Eden Hazard | Lille, Winger, 20

Perhaps the signing that both teams sought after the most, with him lighting up the Ligue 1 this season. He has openly admitted that he could be interested in a move to the BPL, although favouring Arsenal, so that’s a development to watch.

He, however, has recently signed a new long term contract with Lille that is supposed to run through to 2015, but that hasn’t stopped the interest in growing, with Bayern Munich the latest on the list of potential suitors.

YANN M’VILA | Rennes, Defensive-midfielder, Turning 21

Both Liverpool FC and Arsenal have been sniffing around Rennes after their promising young defensive midfielder gave several stellar performances to make Europe sit up and watch. From crunching tackles to a rare powerful shot, M’Villa shows many qualities required the succeed as a defensive midfielder.

Similar in playing style and physical presence to Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets and has all the makings of being as big of a hit as the Barcelona man.

PHIL JONES | Blackburn, Centerback, 19

Perhaps the least clear cut battle between Liverpool and Arsenal, with many other teams interested in the Blackburn man, but it is still a battle. With Wenger still scouring around for transfers and Kenny Dalglish searching for young, British players, it can only mean a bidding war.

Yet to be handed a proper number for the first team, Jones has impressed many a manager this season with his performances at the heart of Blackburn’s defence. Don’t let the stats deceive you, because he’s a defender for goodness sake. How many do you seriously expect him to score?

BOJAN KRKIC | Barcelona, Center Forward, Turning 21

Difficult, that could be the single word that describes Bojan Krkic’s season. He has been made surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou after being made an idol among fans when he was just 17 and just a school boy. There is no clear team that is leading the race.

And this one is full Arsenal vs Liverpool, with no other team really coming in and considering a bid for the Spaniard/Serbian center forward.
