Arsenal Transfer News: Nasri, Fabregas, Krkic, Larsson & Taarabt….

By on June 7, 2011

Well…. this has been quite a day, especially concerning Nasri and his contract situation; his comments have caused widespread anger and shock for fellow Gooners, and now his future as a Gunner is uncertain. Of course, there is plenty of interesting transfer news, gossip, rumors, speculation concerning the Gunners. So without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Nasri unsure over Arsenal future

 

Contract rebel Samir Nasri has angered many Gooners around the world, with his comments about his contract situation. Nasri stated that he “doesn’t know if he’ll sign a new contract” and read this, is considering a move to Manchester United if the “offer is concrete”. Well, I understand that Nasri is a key player and was one of the best players in the Premier League last season. He deserves a pay rise, but to be on par with Cesc Fabregas and holding the club to ransom. He had one good season, ONE! Fabregas gave us 8 excellent and consistent seasons and Nasri wants to have the same salary as he?! Even having the audacity to consider an offer from our fiercest rivals, just ridiculous and greedy. If he doesn’t accept signing a new contract, then he should leave, I don’t want to see him go, but no player is bigger than the club.

More Nasri Speculation

It looks like Spanish side Real Madrid, are going to try and take advantage of the contract dispute, by making an offer of around 10 million pounds for the French international. I believe that this offer is too low, yes, I know he has one year left, but I think if he were to be sold, it would be in the 15-20 million pound range.

Bacrelona will offer rising star as makeweight in Fabregas deal

 

Fabregas involved in a makeweight deal with……

Yes, I know, more Fabregas to Barcelona speculation, but seriously a day won’t be complete without more gossip about this “potential” deal. Anyways, reports are stating that Barcelona will offer their rising star, Thiago Alcantara, as a makeweight in a swap deal worth 50 million pounds. Thiago is a very talented playmaker, with a bright future ahead of him, he’s got plenty of skill, poise, creativity, and passing range. He might not be a bad replacement for Fabregas, but I still don’t want to see Fabregas go.

Arsenal interested in Barcelona’s Bojan Krkic

 

Another Barcelona link, Arsenal is fighting with Liverpool for Barcelona’s unwanted young forward, Bojan Krkic. To be honest, I’m not excited about this link. Bojan is a good player, but he hasn’t developed to the player he’s supposed to be and with a reported value of 17 million pounds, he’s not worth that amount and is a risky signing. He’s a player short on confidence and I doubt that he’s the physique to cope with the physical demands of the Premier League.

Here’s a short video, displaying Bojan’s talents:

 

Arsenal interested in Ex-Gunner Free Agent Larsson

 

This is a shocker! There are reports stating that Wenger is interested in bringing back a former Gunner, Sebastain Larsson, who left his club Birmingham City and is now looking for a new club. Ok, he might be available on a free, but we have plenty of midfielders at the club and I doubt that he’s going to be a first team regular, but as a squad player, he might be useful as he’s usually a reliable player who gives solid, but not great performances. I am not really excited by this link, but if he can accept being a squad player, then what the heck? Though, I doubt that.

Eboue interesting QPR

 

Will Eboue get involved as a makeweight in a deal with…..
Several reports are stating that Emmanuel Eboue is interesting, recently promoted and Championship winners, Queen Park Rangers. The reports are suggesting that Wenger wants him as a makeweight for a potential deal with QPR star, Adel Taarabt. Warnock reportedly wants Eboue and believes that he could get his man, if he lets Taarabt leave. I like Eboue, I always have, his passion, his spirit, I’ve always liked him. But, Eboue is a utility player who doesn’t play regularly and I believe that he should be playing regular football because he deserves to. I don’t want to see him go, but if he has the chance then he should take it and Taarabt is a talented player, even though I have doubts about his attitude ( the way he walked out on Morocco was disgraceful).

What do you think? What are your opinions on the Nasri situation? Should Fabregas get sold? What are your opinions on Taarabt, Larsson, Bojan and Thiago? Do you want Eboue to leave? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    I dont know what is the situation with this Kevin Gameiro boy. That monster is a talent. Having watched France against Ukraine, this boy displayed great skill and serious attacking football. If we can get him,Nasri will become a fringe player if he chose to sign contract extention.In my own opinion he will be a perfect man to play behind RVP.

    hahah you say we have so many Midfielders but we could be two short if ^^ roports are true.

    although it will be abit sad as he is a true loyal player who has played in a CL final for us, i do hope Eboue goes. if anything it opens up a place for a more solid utility player to come in or for one of our prospects to come up.

    hi
    i wouldn’t want to see nasri in manchester united and the only option is to buy striker like neymar and odemwinge

    Samir nasri was my favorite this season but if he decides to go to united .i assure u i will behave the way he behaves when he meets gallas william. I also hope wenger will swallow his pride and spend this summer.

    Larsson could replace eboue and there is 5m to be made there, he is a useful rb and a better midfielders than eboue and can deliver an excellent cross as well as a set piece. Taarabt can adequately replace nasri. First though give nasri the extra 20k a week nail him down for 5 years then make him available. A player with 5 years to run is generally worth more than a player with a year to run. As for Gaimero i would go for him tell him he will be one of 3 strikers fighting for 2 places. We must revert to 2 up front. Forget krkic he is no better than Vela.

    I think this time we should get in the market early, nasri deserve the raise, Fab i think should go, eboue should leave too, a goal scoring forward would be nice also gaimero, gervinho any of the two would be a nice addition. However we need two fresh(good) defenders which will allow us better rotations and definitely we need midfielders with height and some defensive capabilities

    Nasri wants to go to ManU,Berbatov wants out,we need a goal scorer to bolster our attack,why not go for a straight swap.they both have 1 year left on their contracts and are not happy where they are.

    the shirts that Cesc sells,the money the club gets thru advertising using his face,the magic that he brings to our game.
    he surely is worth more than 50mil to us becoz 50mil cannot replace what Cesc brings to the club.of course barca can afford him,they just dont want to pay becoz he can from them and he wants to go back.what they dont seem to get is that he is not on the transfer list.
    they can give us 35mill plus a couple of their fringe players like they did with the flop,Ibrahimovic.they even offered E’to + Hleb + 45mil.E’to was a goal machine at that time,but they cant do it for Cesc,i doubt they really need him.
    Where is he gonna play.Barca are winning things already as they are,i would not change their team if i managed it.
