Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal Close On Defender | Strikers Linked | 2 Players Out

By on June 10, 2011

Wow, what a day! Today, has been an absolute field day in regards to transfer news, gossip, speculation regarding the Gunners. There are some interesting headlines today which might delight or upset you, without further ado here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal targeting both Samba and Cahill

 

Many reports suggest and state that both, Samba and Cahill, are interesting the Gunners and are the Gunners main targets as their new central defenders. It is not sure whether the Gunners want both players or either one of them, but it looks like the latter. Samba is valued at 10 million pounds by his club Blackburn, while Cahill is valued at 17 million pounds by Bolton. In my opinion, either one will be a good signing for the Gunners and Samba looks like the likelier target out of the two.

Update on Samba

There are reports filtering around, stating that Samba is closing in on a move to the Gunners. The reported deal is around 9 million pounds. If the reports are true, then good signing for the Gunners.

Falcao tempted to try his luck in the big leagues

 

Falcao… wants to try his luck with the best…. hopefully with the Gunners

As was revealed weeks ago, Arsenal are interested in signing goal-scoring sensation and Porto star, Radamel Falcao, and are willing to pay his 26 million pound buyout clause. Falcao has admitted to wanting to experience life in a top league in Europe, but that it would be difficult to leave Porto. Arsenal, of course, are not the only club interested in Falcao, as Tottenham, Real Madrid, and many other clubs are fighting for his services. Falcao, is the striker I want to see come into the Emirates, he’s a goal-scorer, great finisher, great in the air and he’s what what the Gunners need, someone who scores goals and finishes with venom.

Arsenal interested in Ahmedov

 

Ahmedov (#9)…. interesting the Gunners

A surprising link, as many reports state that Wenger is interested in signing Uzbek international, Odil Ahmedov, who plies his trade in his country with Pakhtakor, but is on loan with Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala. Ahmedov, 23, was one of the stars of the Asian Cup and can play well at both midfield and defence. There are conflicting reports on his height, many suggest that he’s 6 feet while Imscouting report that he’s around 5’8″ tall, he loves to attack whenever he has the opportunity and who has a strong right foot. In my opinion, Ahmedov is a talented player, but he’s an unnecessary signing and if he plays in defense, then it would be an issue as I believe he’s too lightweight to play in the Premier League.

Check out this scorcher of a goal by Ahmedov, during the Asian Cup:

 

Liverpool launch bid for Gael Clichy

 

Clichy…. wanted by Liverpool and likely to leave the Gunners

More intriguing news here, as there are reports stating that Liverpool have launched a 5 million pound bid for Arsenal’s want away left back, Gael Clichy. Clichy has been stalling on signing a new contract and reportedly wants to move on. Liverpool have shown a keen interest in Clichy, but that offer is pitiful in my opinion, he might have one year left on his contract, but his value in my opinion, should be around 8-9 million pounds.

Man U step up their interest for Nasri

 

Nasri…. interesting fierce rival

The big headliner today, as Sky Sports reported that Manchester United have stepped up their interest for Samir Nasri. Nasri has so far, stalled on signing a new contract and Man U are trying to take advantage of the situation. I honestly, seriously doubt that Arsenal would allow Nasri to move to Man U and I don’t think it will happen. If Nasri doesn’t sign a new contract, he will most likely go to a top foreign club, most likely in Spain.

What do you think? Should Wenger go after Samba, Cahill and Ahmedov? Do you want Clichy to leave? Do you think it’s possible for Nasri to move to a fierce rival? Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    SAF has a reputation of buying players from his competitors and weaken them . Yorke sprinsg to mind. Before going to MU,AV were challenging the red faced. Soon the villains faded away.
    I remembered he wanted to get Veira at his prime. Wenger would have none of it.
    Nasri is an interesting case.He is in the final year of his contract.If I were Wenger offload him to a Euro team
    for less than what the rfc offers.Yeah we have Ramsey and Wihshire but if Fab goes,what will happen?

    It will be a great transfer with a great squard if we can have falcao,samba,and cahill at emirate but plus one or two midfielder including a wingan that can be as a subtitute 4 walcot. Up gunners.

    Baines for Clichy. Nasri to stay, Fab.some money plus Affelay then bring in Falcao,Cahill and Samba then we are almost there.But it looks like attracting players to Arsenal is abit hard coz we pay average wage, finish fourth and no sign of serious poaching in the market.Looking atlast season we should have to bring in tne new faces in time not waiting for the last minute deals.

    wenger should not let nasri go because we need him to win trophy; past season was his best: we needs him in arsenal.

    i think wenger shud do wot eva takes to keep nasri but if he does leave it must be abroad, 5m for clichy is a joke especialy to a rival rather he leaves for nothing next year, if fabregas does get sold this sumer wich i think he will then the money shoud be used to buy a strong replacement although as an arsenal fan i would rather he stayed, maybe good investments mite pursuade them to stay a little while longer

    Thank you everyone for commenting….. I just heard that Gervinho is on the verge of joining the Gunners and that Samba’s getting closer…. nothing is official yet. What do you think everyone?

    Cheers and take care,

    i thought this article would have some ‘new’ news but i heard all this stuff a month ago. everyone knows that Arsenal are interested in Samba and Cahill.

    and i dont get why we are thinking of selling clichy he is one of the top 3 left backs in the league, if we sell him to liverpool they go above us in that position MAJOR step backwards
