Arsenal Transfer News: Another Keeper Linked & Winger ‘Dreams’ Of Arsenal Move

By on May 31, 2011

After days of heavy speculation, today was a bit quiet with no big headlines and such, nothing to get you off your seat. Well, without further a due, here is the Arsenal Transfer Roundup.

Witsel “dreams” of becoming a Gunner

I stumbled on this headline, while reading an article on The Gunning Hawk. Axel Witsel, a Belgian international who plays for Standard de Liege, apparently according to his father, “dreams” of playing for the Gunners: “He doesn’t have a specific target but he has a dream and it’s called Arsenal.” Witsel has always been an excellent player, who has always been linked with the best clubs in Europe. He has made a reputation of being a “dirty” player ever since he broke an opponent’s leg a few seasons back. This doesn’t mean that Witsel isn’t a talented player, he is one of the best rising stars in Europe and still has a bright future ahead of him. In my opinion, his value will around or over 10 million pounds.

Here’s the link to the article: http://www.thegunninghawk.com/2011/05/28/axel-witsels-father-he-has-a-dream-to-play-for-arsenal/

Check out this video, displaying his talents:

 

Carlos Vela is staying a Gunner and won’t participate in the Copa America

 

Vela’s agent has confirmed that Vela, is still held in regard by Wenger and is still in his plans for next season and in the future. While it has also been confirmed, that Arsenal will not release or let Vela join Mexico in the Copa America this summer. I believe this is great news, as Vela will get another opportunity to prove himself because he has the skill and potential to do so, and by not participating in the Copa America, he will have a whole pre-season to get back on track.

Here’s the link to the article, it’s in Spanish:

Arsenal interested in Gordon

There is a report on the Sunday Sun, reporting that Wenger is interested in injury prone Scottish international and Sunderland keeper Craig Gordon and that he will cost 9 million pounds. This is honestly in my opinion and absurd article, as I don’t believe Wenger is after a goalkeeper, and also by describing Szczesny as “calamitous” even though he has had an excellent season as well as the improving Lukasz Fabianski. So I don’t believe Wenger will be after a goalkeeper and certanily and hopefully, not an injury prone keeper despite his talents.

What do you think? Do you want to Axel Witsel or Craig Gordon as a Gunner? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

    hey. I wanted to say that all will be f9 for arsenal if we get a striker, an attacking mid player and a right footed central defender. If clichy leaves we should buy baines

      I agree on Baines, he’d be a good signing and replacement.

      I believe that we need a defensive midfielder and probably a winger as well.

      Cheers and take care,

    If witsel, is good enough and he ‘dreams of playing for Arsenal’ then we should go and get him. We need players who want to play for our club above everyone else. Players who will do anything to play for Arsenal! That’s what we need!

    Get witsel, I admit he has a bit of a reputation but we need someone with a bit of bite, also he wants to play for the arsenal, unlike faberegas and contract rebal nasri. Also we need someone Like samba at the back and a selfish striker, drogba perhaps

    • Omar Almasri

      June 1, 2011 at 3:31 am

      Yeah I agree with you man, Witsel is a talented player and a bit of bite wouldn’t hurt.

      Cheers and take care,

    • Omar Almasri

      Mexes has already transferred to AC Milan. Oxlade-Chamberlain looks very likely to arrive, Kalou is unlikely as well as Benzema, and the rest are possible except for Bale of course.

      Cheers and take care,

      Omar
