Luis Pedro Cavanda: Out of favour at Lazio and keeping his options open

Reports have suggested that Cavanda is among a number of potential defensive recruits Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has his eye on heading into the summer.

The 22-year-old right-back is likely to be available at the end of the season after becoming locked in a contract dispute with Lazio.

He is tied to the Italian club until 2014, but no extension talks have been held.

Arsenal may be able to make that situation work to their advantage when the transfer window re-opens, with Cavanda's representative admitting that he is keeping all options open.

"Pedro is currently out of the team, so it is natural that we are looking around," Ulisse Savini told calciomercato.it.

"It will not be easy to find a solution that makes Lazio happy, but we will try.

"Arsenal's interest? I don't know about it, but if there is interest then we would be flattered."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
