So it’s official, Arsenal are the only team to defeat the “Greatest side in history”, after Barca wiped out Man U 3-1 in the final at Wembley. Anyways, concerning the gossip and such, it kind of dried up ever since the last post when it was reported that Arsenal have made a bid for Christopher Samba. Still, there is some interesting news especially concerning Arshavin, so here is the roundup today.
Arshavin staying a Gunner
I believe this is great news, as Russian international Andriy Arshavin, has confirmed that he’s staying a Gunner, after reports of interest from his former club, Zenit St. Petersburg. “Don’t believe the rumors. Everything is good with Arsene Wenger. I’m not going to leave Arsenal.” This statement confirms his intentions of staying a Gunner and honestly, I’m happy he’s staying, he might not have had the best of seasons, but he still is a class player.
I know that some Gooners want Arshavin out, check out this video to refresh your memory of how talented and classy, the Russian maestro is:
Gervinho is wanted by Wenger….. to replace Arshavin?
This is certainly interesting, as the Guardian reports that Lille and Ivory Coast international Gervinho, is wanted by both Arsenal and Liverpool. Wenger is considering bringing in Gervino, if he can sell Arshavin and recoup most of the 15 million pounds he paid for Arshavin. Gervinho is a class player, he has a lot of skill and pace, but I don’t want to see him as a replacement for Arshavin, maybe for Rosicky, but not Arshavin….. he’ll still be a quality acquisition if Wenger decides to sign him.
What do you think? Are you relieved that Arshavin is staying? Do you think that Gervinho is a good buy? Please share your thoughts and opinions.
Cheers and take care,
