REPORTS: Arsenal Make Their Move For Samba

Chris-Samba-Blackburn

Arsenal are set to make their move for Blackburn defender Chris Samba, according to Sky Sports News.

Arsene Wenger has made it clear he will be adding to his squad this summer, with the defensive department a particular priority and after missing out on Samba’s club-mate Phil Jones, Wenger will now step up his interest in the giant Congo centre back.

The majority of Gunners fans have been crying out for a solid and dominant player at the heart of their defence, and Samba would certainly fit the bill. His premiership experience would also be invaluable and if reports are to be believed, Arsenal will soon attempt to snap up the defender after failing to secure his signature in January.

    Wouldnt be a bad signing, as long as he can adapt to Arsenal’s passing game and high line. That said, Djourou and Koscielny are very technically adept, so maybe Arsenal could use him as his strength and die-hard attitude could come in very handy especially against the more physical sides that rely on set pieces.

    I’m fed up with being linked with this player and that player and then they slip through our fingers simply because Wenger won’t spend money and they end up going to our rivals. If we’re serious about Samba and Cahill and this African player then go out and get them now don’t dither about and we end up on the loosing side yet again as we have done all season. Splash the cash there must be plenty in the so called transfer chest
