It’s Arsenal vs Liverpool In The Transfer Market

By on June 8, 2011

On first look, Arsenal and Liverpool don’t have many similarities in terms of what they are searching for this coming transfer window, but the fact is, they are chasing the same players. Check this out.

Eden Hazard | Lille, Winger, 20

Perhaps the signing that both teams sought after the most, with him lighting up the Ligue 1 this season. He has openly admitted that he could be interested in a move to the BPL, although favouring Arsenal, so that’s a development to watch.

He, however, has recently signed a new long term contract with Lille that is supposed to run through to 2015, but that hasn’t stopped the interest in growing, with Bayern Munich the latest on the list of potential suitors.

YANN M’VILA | Rennes, Defensive-midfielder, Turning 21

Both Liverpool and Arsenal have been sniffing around Rennes after their promising young defensive midfielder gave several stellar performances to make Europe sit up and watch. From crunching tackles to a powerful shot, M’Villa shows many qualities required the succeed as a defensive midfielder.

Similar in playing style and physical presence to Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets and has all the makings of being as big of a hit as the Barcelona man.

PHIL JONES | Blackburn, Centerback, 19

Perhaps the least clear cut battle between Liverpool and Arsenal, with many other teams interested in the Blackburn man. With Wenger still scouring around for a dominant defender and Kenny Dalglish searching for young, British players, it can only mean a bidding war.

Yet to be handed a proper number for the first team, Jones has impressed many a manager this season with his performances at the heart of Blackburn’s defence. Don’t let the stats deceive you, because he’s a defender for goodness sake. How many do you seriously expect him to score?

BOJAN KRKIC | Barcelona, Center Forward, Turning 21

Difficult, that could be the single word that describes Bojan Krkic’s season. He has been made surplus to requirements at the Camp Nou after being made an idol among fans when he was just 17 and just a school boy. There is no clear team that is leading the race.

And this one is full Arsenal vs Liverpool, with no other team really coming in and considering a bid for the Spaniard/Serbian center forward.

It’s going to be an nteresting summer in both North London and Merseyside!

    this is ridiculous!!!
    we wont sign jones, we will sign scott dann instead… hes cheaper, hes better than jones, and hes a SCOUSER..
    and we wont sign hazard too… hes said he wont play for us… plus kennys in for the likes of downing, young and mata.. no hazard…
    bojans also a no… were on the verge of signing connor wickham, why would we want bojan aswell…
    yann m’villa is the stupidest of all… we’ve just spent £20mil on jordan henderson and we’ve tabled a bid of around £10mil for charlie adam… we wont sign yann m’villa…

      glad to see not all liverpool fans are fools. he he Henderson is a good player and I rate conner wickham myself, kind of want to see your lot do well, i have a soft spot for king kenny. Helped my mum up when she fell over years back. my advice to him stear clear of downing, could be a good player got lots to his game just a bit of a fanny for my liking. I would go all out for matta but i recon he would be hard to pursuede. plus not renound for his crossing ability which i should put high on the wanted list with carrol. he needs service or you may as well burnt that money. carrol needs to sort out his first touch too. winger wise i do not think it would be a bad idea pushing glen johnson into midfield, played his best football at pompy in that position. good luck!
