Arsene Will Be Making Signings – Chelsea Target Aguero – CL Countdown

By on May 25, 2011

Arsenal will be having a “very active” summer transfer market according to the manager Arsene Wenger. The window hasn’t even opened yet, but apparently Arsenal have already signed Ricardo Alvarez in a pre-contract agreement from the Argentinian club Vélez Sársfield.

Add that to countless other rumours circulating, linking Arsenal to players such as Bolton’s Gary Cahill, Blackburns Chris Samba and PSG’s Mamadou Sakho, and you see a pattern developing. Defenders are the priority, and Wenger, although cauious with how much he spends, said:

“The market will be hyperactive because everyone believes financial fair play will happen soon,” Wenger said, referring to Uefa’s tighter regulations on club spending. “So we are quickly doing the last buying before the stores will be closed. And for the first time for a while, I will be very active, too.”

Arsenal may well be saying goodbye to Nicklas Bendtner, whose father, Thomas, confirmed his son wants to leave the club: Nicklas has made his decision and told Arsenal: he wants to leave the club.” Arsenal are quoting the figure of £8.7 million for anyone interested in his services, with Bayern Munich said to be interested in the confident 23 year-old striker.

A player whom Arsenal would no doubt love to have leading their line is Diego Maradona’s son-in-law, Sergio Aguero of Athletico Madrid. He is of Athletico for now, as he recently confirmed like Bendtner that he will be looking for a new club in the summer. I suspect he would cost too much for Arsenal anyway, but the 22 year-old is not short of admirers.

Liverpool, City and Chelsea have all been linked to him – and they are only from the Premier League. Real Madrid are apparently early favourites for the Argentinians signature. He is a fine finisher, scoring 20 League goals this season for Athletico, while assisting 2. Aguero said:

“I said long ago that when I wanted to go, I would say so publicly. And the time has come.”

“So I keep to my word and here I am. I find it hard to leave Atletico. It hurts and saddens me. I’ve thought long and hard and I am convinced that I must be true to myself.”

“I do not think I put a ceiling on the ability to keep learning, to keep growing. After five intense years, this stage for me personally is over and I have to give way to a new one.”

“I’m about to turn 23 and I have everything before me. Suffice it to say that this is not an economic issue but strictly a sporting one. So I want to clearly express my appreciation to the club for the efforts they have made for giving me a salary that equates with the largest clubs in the world.”

Meanwhile, the biggest game of the year is fast approaching, as Manchester United and Barcelona prepare for their Champions League final at Wembley. In light of recent off-field events however, regarding Ryan Giggs, Sir Alex Ferguson was said to be “beside himself with anger” at the alleged revelations.

Some said that Giggs feared for his place in the Champions League starting line up for United, but the Daily Mail have just reported that Giggs will in fact start the massive game. United could win their fourth Champions League trophy – Sir Alex’s third, and these sorts of distraction are most unwelcome.

Hopefully, Giggs will continue to do what he has done for his long, fruitful career, and be fully professional throughout, to set an example as always to his fellow players. United will have a supremely tough test on Saturday, and they need all the togetherness and quality they can muster.

Tell me what you think!

    United have won the European Cup 3 times, one before it became the Champions League and 2 since then. They have reached the final 3 times in the Champions League, losing to Barcelona in that one.

    Only some stupid fans trust in Wenger still and believe wenger words still.

    He is again and again trying to cheat fans by saying this all bull shit words.

    Yes, he is active in market now for replacing some of his good players with below average cheap young players.

    AW is going to cheat fans again. He will not make any big move this summer also.

    He will simply say end of summer “We were so close to sign some players and this team is having quality and will win this time”

    Why are we still talking about Arsene Wenger ? He should have been fired three years ago. We should be talking about which players Carlo Ancelotti is going to bring to the Arsenal…

    I wouldnt sack Wenger but I would get rid of about 10 players and replace everyone. Our squad isnt good enough to cover the amount of injuries we get. I dont care what it costs we need quality players. Proven quality we can just throw into the starting time at any time.
    Get Rid of.. Almunia, Eboue, Squallici, Clichy, Denilson, Rosicky, Arshavin, Nasri, Vela, Bentdner. Maybe Chamakh and Diaby as well.
    The only reason id get rid of Clichy and Nasri is if they didnt sign a new contract before August.

    im getting sick of poeple saying we need to sell players like Squallici and Chamakh because they havnt been prolific. they are players coming from France and spain you cant expect them to adapt to the physicality of the PL strait away few players do. eg. Ronaldo and Drogba slow starters now look.Squallici has experience and is good ‘BENCH’ cover for verminator and a new CB and Chamakh is a big CF who just needs time to get consistency in his game. we all saw what he can do at the beginning of the season.

    and to say sell Clicy and Nasri because they havnt finished NEGOTIATING there contract when you want is mad!! nasri says he wants to stay and Clichy is part of arsenal

    SELL LIST.
    -Almunia
    -Flappyhandski
    -Djurou
    -Eboue
    -Diaby
    -Denilson
    -Rosicky (sadly)
    -Bendtner

    BRING IN
    -CB (Cahill or Samba because of PL Ex.)
    -DM (back up as we’r losing Denilson)
    -Winger (cover for theo, must be fast!!)
    -ST (Fast striker as we have Tech with VP and hight with MC)
    -A new Defensive coach!!!!!!!!!!!

    that would leave us with 4CBs, 8-9 Midfielder’s, and 3-4 Strikers with no bad plyer amongst them

    —————Szczesny—————– Clichy—–NewCB—-Verminator—–Sanga
    —————————————————-Song——————————————-Wilshere—————————Fabregas——————Walcott———————–Nasri——————-van Persie—————-

    BENCH
    -NEW GK (or SCEZ)
    -Koscielny
    -Squillaci
    -Gibbs
    -NEW DM
    -Ramsey
    -Arshavin
