An EXCLUSIVE! report on Sport.co.uk this morning seems to suggest that Arsenal may be mulling over a move for Japan’s stand-out World Cup star Keisuke Honda, who currently plays his club football in Russia with CSKA Moscow.
The site also seem to believe that Liverpool are in pursuit of the 24-year-old attacking midfielder, all of which they have managed to garner from these rather vague quotes from the player’s agent Kees Ploegsma;
“A few clubs have contacted me about the situation and asked me questions about Keisuke but no club has made a serious offer for him. No one has contacted the club to make a formal offer.
There are several clubs interested but so far nothing has happened regarding a formal offer.
I don’t know if CSKA Moscow will let him leave, or what sort of money they will be asking. Discussions will take place when a club makes a formal offer for the player.”
As you may have noticed, mentions of Arsenal (zero) and mentions of Liverpool (zero) are a little thin on the ground, but you’ve got to agree – it’s still one hell of an exclusive!
