This has been quite an interesting couple of days of transfer news, gossip and speculation surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here is the recap or roundup of the headlines.

Denilson wanted by Sevilla

Great news in my opinion, as according to the Daily Mail, Spanish side Sevilla, have offered the wantaway Brazilian midfielder, a route out of Arsenal. Sevilla are willing to pay the Gunners around 8 million pounds to acquire the Brazilian. Yes, you heard me,  8 MILLION POUNDS!!!!!!!!! The offer, in my opinion, is way above his valuation which in my opinion is around 5 million pounds or less. So I suggest to Wenger…… TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN!!!!!!

Bendtner valued at 9.6 million pounds

Nicklas Bendtner’s agent and father, Thomas Bendtner, has valued his wantaway son, at around 9.6 million pounds or 11 million euros. Bendtner is set to leave this summer, but it will all depend on whether clubs interested in him will pay the amount. I believe Bendtner is slightly overvalued at that price, I belive he’s in the 7-8.5 million pound range, but that’s just my opinion. Bendtner has quite a lot of interest from the likes of Lazio, Fulham, even Bayern Munich, so I think he’ll find a way out this summer.

Link to the article:

Barcelona offer 30 million pounds for Fabregas

Fabregas….. valued more than 30 million pounds

Yeah, here we go again. Many reports are stating that Barcelona are going to launch a 30 million pound offer for Gunners skipper and playmaker, Cesc Fabregas. In my opinion, that is a low offer and will definitely get rejected, I don’t think that Wenger is keen on selling him and if he is, the offer should be closer to 50 million pounds….. joke of an offer.

Here’s a link to an article about the news:

Nasri contract talks stall

Well, this isn’t good news at all, as Wenger confirmed that contract talks with Samir Nasri have stalled, due to differences in wages. A report by, states that Nasri wants the same salary as Cesc Fabregas, which is around 110,000 pounds per week. I believe that Nasri’s demands aren’t justified, despite his excellent performances this season. Yes, he deserves a pay rise, but not the same amount as Fabregas. Fabregas has been consistently excellent for the past 6-7 years, while Nasri has finally performed this year. If Nasri and Arsenal, don’t agree on a new contract, then just sell him before the new season begins.

Falcao update: I’m in no rush to leave Porto

This is an update provided by Radamel Falcao himself, who’s gaining huge interest from the Gunners and Tottenham. Falcao states that he is “calm” about the situation and that Porto are looking to renew his contract. He also states that he does “not know if it’s his time to leave to another championship”. Not a really positive update, but nonetheless an update.

Here’s the link to the article:

Oxlade- Chamberlain wants Arsenal move

This news comes from the ever-reliable, We Are the North Bank, who first reported on the Gunners re-opening talks with the talented English winger/midfielder. Mark Chamberlain, his father, stated that his son wants” to get to Arsenal as soon as possible and continue his development….” I expect this transfer to happen sooner rather than later, as clearly, Wenger is really serious about signing him.

Here’s the link to the article:

Arsenal interested in Samuel Eto’o

This is the surprising and biggest news of the day, as there are reports coming out of Italy, suggesting that Arsenal are interested in signing Cameroonian international and Inter Milan star and legend, Samuel Eto’o. Eto’o, as the article states will act as a replacement for wantaway striker, Nicklas Bendtner. I don’t believe that this transfer will take place, as Eto’o is highly valued and important to Inter Milan and the story just seems like pure gossip to me, but if it does happen…. Eto’o will be one hell of a signing.

I know that you probably know about Eto’o’s talents, but why not have another look…. enjoy:

What do you think? What are your opinions on the Bendtner, Denilson, Fabregas, and Nasri situations? Do you want to see either Falcao or Eto’o as a Gunner? What is your opinion on Wenger signing a third youngster in the form of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    I agree with everything apart from the Nasri situation. I think if he wants more money then we should give it to him. I wouldn’t mind if Chamberlain came but I don’t think he is needed. Also I would like either of Falcao and Eto’o to come although I would prefer Eto’o because he is a legend!

      I respect your opinion and I agree with you on everything except on Nasri. Nasri had a fine season, up until we needed him the most, where he faded away…. he deserves a pay rise, but not as much as he’s asking for.

      Cheers and take care,

    Tell Sevilla to make it £10m and we will give them back Squillaci and throw Almunia in as a bonus!!

    Eto, Benzema, Berbatov, Falcao, Gameiro any 2 of these 5 to replace Bendtner and Vela will do for me.

    Perhaps Inter will give us Eto and Schneider for Nasri? and Barca give us Mascherano and Affelay for Cesc, have to say with that lot i would not feel that we have weakened our team

    Yes i agreed with u about nasri, he should have his pay rise only what we (Arsenal) can afford. if he feels he’s an important player what about RVP? If nasril goes Arsenal stil remains he’s not d fisrt good player Arsenal had after all he faded when we needed him the most

    June 2, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    sammy eto? he is the man we need most in our team now.i think we should pay nasri more but not what our dear captain recieves.
    there are senoirs in everything. it will really pain me if we loose nasri to any team in the world bt if he is still not satisfied LET HIM GO. arsenal is bigger than him.

    • Omar Almasri

      June 2, 2011 at 9:27 pm

      I agree with your opinion, I think Eto’o would be a terrific signing and Nasri deserves a pay rise, but not that high.

      Cheers and take care,

    If Nasri wants to be on the same money as our top earner, just give it to him?

    Why? Because he performed for 5 months then fell off the pace?

    Does anyone smell a repeat of the Adebayor situation? A few months of good performance, head gets turned, then believes he’s the best player at the club.

    Remember, our best player is Bendtner 🙂 – just ask him, or his dad!!!!!!

    Nasri shd be offered 100k and if he refuses he shd be allowed to go at a good price (£35M) after all he was not as fantastic towards the end of the season. With £35M we will buy a world class replacement and for fabregas he shd be allowed to go to barca at agood price. Since they will not be willing to pay us £50M, then they shd give us £25M + bojan + affeley. Come to think of it are u sure Barca really needs fabregas that much? I don’t think so. They are more interested in getting Rossi. What i feel we need is a good goal scorer (eto o, benzima, etc) a physically strong and aggressive. DM to put Song on his toes, he seems to be very comfortable these days and he is not improving on his game.. Then we need atleast 2 very good and tall defenders. I just pray that at the end of the day AW will not buy some unknown players and some 17year olds and he will tell us we now have a team as usual.

    • Omar Almasri

      June 2, 2011 at 9:33 pm

      Well said and written and I see your point. I don’t think Barca should be desperate for Fabregas, but they have been doing everything they can buy to him in the past few years.

      Let’s not try and be pessimistic about Wenger’s potential signings, I know his first few signings have been youngsters, but in his recent interviews and such, he seems like a man fed up so let’s try and be a little bit positive… hopefully he’ll bring in the right acquisitions.

      Cheers and take care,

    June 2, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Thank you all for commenting and sharing your thoughts and views. Hopefully Wenger signs and gets the right acquisitions and hopefully Nasri will resign his contract…. hopefully.

    Cheers and take care everyone,
