ARSENAL TRANSFER NEWS: Inler I’ll accept…. Diakhate…. absolutely not!!!!!!
For the past few days, I have been reading transfer news and gossip surrounding Arsenal. In amidst all of the news and gossip surrounding our beloved club, there are two players, who we’ve been linked for years, that grabbed my attention were Gokhan Inler and Pape Diakhate.
Gokhan Inler, is a Swiss international of Turkish origin, he’s a midfielder who plays for Udinese in the Serie A. He is good in both attack and defense, who has had a stuttering start this season, but has now come into the fore with excellent performances with the last being against one of the best sides this season, Napoli. Gokhan Inler is a player who is over 6 feet tall, who has a great long shot, an excellent presence, good passer and all in all an excellent midfielder. Wenger almost snared him a few years ago, and I suggest that he makes another attempt, as he will do well in the Premier league in my opinion and he’s an upgrade to Diaby, Denilson, and also Song. Inler would be an excellent acquisition for the club and if the reported 40 million pound budget is true, then he can be bought. The only problem is that after he didn’t celebrate his goal against Napoli, rumors and many reports are suggesting that Napoli have acquired him, and if it’s true then we lost out on him, but I still suggest that Wenger should try and hijack the deal.
For Pape Diakhate, who is a SenegaIese international who is also over 6 feet tall, I sincerely and really hope that Wenger doesn’t even make an attempt to buy him. The player has been a walking disaster for Lyon this season and he has been a HUGE flop this season. Do you seriously expect that a player who has failed in France AND Ukraine to succeed in the Premier League? The player might be strong physically, but he is slow and can barely make a decent tackle. He is also not primarily a centerback, as his main position is at left back. Pape Diakhate, in my opinion, is not good enough at all to play at a top club like Arsenal….. I believe that Wenger shouldn’t even think about acquiring his services as they are much centerbacks out there, but after he acquired sub-par defenders like Squillaci and Silvestre over the past few years…. I kind of have my doubts.
What do you fellow Gooners think?
Cheers everyone and take care,
