Arsenal close in on Spanish midfielder after target is OFFICIALLY put up for sale

Arsenal are stepping up their pursuit of Asier Illarramendi after Real Madrid officially put him up for sale, according to the Daily Mirror website.

The Gunners have been tracking the 25-year-old’s situation for some time and are ready to back up their interest with an offer of around £8.5million.

The Spaniard has never really settled at the Bernabeu after his big move and now are looking to offload a number of players to fund their own transfer dealings. © 2017 Frontier Theme
