TRANSFER NEWS: England Winger & 22-goal Striker Linked, Bendtner Off

By on May 24, 2011

Today has been interesting day of news, especially concerning transfer news and gossip surrounding Arsenal.

Bendtner Off

It has been confirmed that Nicklas Bendtner will  be leaving the Gunners this summer, the news was confirmed by his father/agent:

“Nicklas is 100 percent determined to leave the club immediately.”

Sources of the news comes from Goal.com and many other news sources. Even though I never really liked him, but he did have his moments, like his goal vs Ipswich and hattrick against Porto.

Gunners linked with 22-goal striker

This is interesting…. a report by The People states and claims that “Arsenal are on top in the race for Lille star and Ligue 1 top scorer, Moussa Sow.” Moussa Sow has scored 22 goals this season, and has been one of the stars in the League-winning side.

This news will delight many Gunners, but I doubt Lille would sell him, especially as they’re playing Champions League football next season and have just won the French League. If an offer will be made, Sow’s value will be around 15 million pounds and more, it is claimed by The People that want-away midfielder Denilson and Andriy Arshavin are considered as makeweights in the deal. The story seems far-fetched to me, I suggest to not keep your hopes up.

To get a better view and idea of Moussa Sow’s talents, check out this video:

Stewart Downing linked

 

Fellow Arsenal blog, 15 year old Gooner, reports that Wenger has sent scouts to keep an eye on Aston Villa winger, Stewart Downing. He’s a good player, when he wants to be, but he’s inconsistent and I’m not excited by the prospects of him joining the club. Yes, Arsenal have lacked a natural left-footed winger, ever since Robert Pires left the club, but there are certainly better options like Balasz Dzudszdak of PSV Eindhoven.

Is he good enough, judge yourselves:

Here’s the link to the blog post: …. there is also an update on Ricardo Alvarez so check it out.

Also, it’s finally official….. Ryan Giggs is the man who had an affair with Reality TV star Imogen Thomas, but we all knew that, right?

Seriously though, you can’t blame Ryan Giggs for doing her…. right?

What do you think? Is Bendtner going to be missed? Are Moussa Sow and Stewart Downing good enough to be Gunners? In regards to the Giggs-Thomas case, what is your opinion about injunctions?

Cheers and take care,

Omar

    Being pedantic, Robert Pires wasn’t left footed he was right footed but played on the left!!

    I wouldn’t mind if Bendtner went, I would like it Moussa Sou comes to Arsenal, but I’m not too keen on Downing coming.

      Same here Andy, I don’t think Downing is consistent enough to be a Gunner or for any top club for that matter.

      Thanks for commenting, but the “French Gazelle” and great Henry is irreplaceable, he’s the greatest Gunner of all time.

    Thanks for commenting everyone…. looks like Wenger has already begun with letting go of players who weren’t good enough to be a Gunner in the first place, the rumor mill is rolling and the latest I’ve heard is that Wenger, has hinted in making a bit for Benzema.

    Check out my latest my post on my blog at http://www.o-posts.net for the latest transfer round-up.

    Cheers and take care,
