Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal Linked With £7m Diarra

By on June 5, 2011

Today, has been quite an interesting day for transfer news, gossip, speculation, rumors etc., surrounding Arsenal. Without further ado, here’s your Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal interested in Diarra

Diarra….. interesting the Gunners

Finally! Arsenal have been linked with the French international and Bordeaux skipper. Alou Diarra is described as “strong, combative, athletic” and is compared to Patrick Vieira by many. He has the leadership qualities, character, skill, and physique to do very well with the Gunners. He is rated by the press at 7 million pounds, but I believe he’s in the 8-10 million pound range and I think Wenger should go for him before another team does.

Defoe wanted by the Gunners

Defoe….. not worth it

This is certainly intriguing news, as there are reports stating that Arsenal are interested in Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe and are rating the 29 year old at around 10 million pounds. I honestly don’t recommend Defoe, as he first plays with a rival and second, he has had a poor, poor season and I don’t recommend this signing. Especially at his current value, not worth the risk and I don’t there is anyway Spurs would sell him to their fiercest rival.

Despite me not recommending his signing, he does have his moments, check it out for yourself with this video:

 

Roma offer Menez in exchange for Clichy


Menez…. linked with a swap deal involving Clichy

Another interesting headline, as various sources are reporting that AS Roma are interesting swapping Jeremy Menez for Arsenal left back Gael Clichy. Roma are looking to replace their ageing left back, John Arne Riise, and they see Clichy as a good replacement. Menez, has indicated that he wants to leave Roma, which is the reason for Roma’s interest in a player exchange. I honestly don’t mind this exchange if it happens, as Menez is a very talented player who has pace, the ability to run at players and cause serious problems to any opponent, so I believe that he would be a good buy.

Here is a video, displaying Menez’s talents:

What do you think? Should Wenger go for Diarra and Defoe? Do you want the player swap between Clichy and Menez to happen? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

      Agreed, 10 million for a player who’s had a poor season is a joke.

    Thank you all for commenting and sharing your opinions. Diarra, in my opinion would be a very good buy, he’s one of the best in his position in Europe, as well as having a good height (6’3″) which would help especially in set piece situations.

    Defoe is a good player, but has had a poor season and with that value, is a risky signing.

    Menez, is a very talented player who play as an attacking midfielder, winger or forward and is skillful, who can causes defenses all sorts of problems, he can be a quality signing.

    Cheers and take care everyone,

    Omar

    Oh please buy that Menez. Thats how good Arshavin used to be!!!

    To be honest all three of these players would be good. Defore – a bad season? Yes, but with Wenger’s help next season could see a big improvement for a player that has proved is capable of goals and has a desire to follow in the footsteps of his idol Ian Wright!
    Diarra, i don’t know much of him but if he can fit in the Vierra mould, Wenger should immediately try to work on that. And Menez would be a great signing as Clichy is unlikely to sign a new contract and we would not make much profit for a player with only one season left. Menez is skillful and capable of goals and assists and, considering Hazard is no longer looking likely seems to be a fitting alternative. Why not all three?!

    Jeremy Menez and Jermaine Defoe can bring some change in arsenal lineup. Defoe is swift and good in passing antics.
    Thanks.
