TRANSFER NEWS: City Target Arsenal Ace | Surprise Midfielder Linked With Gunners

By on June 19, 2011

Today’s post will be dedicated to the news given to us by the media Vultures. As always, I’ll prefer to start with possible arrivals before writing about departures.

Blackburn’s Indian owners have told the media Vultures and Arsenal that they’ll like to keep hold of Samba for a season at least.

They said that he has an ambition to play for Arsenal but they hope to keep him for one more season to show their own ambition. If their ambition involves escaping relegation again next season, they can be my guests. Samba is a player that’ll add a lot of power, aerial presence as well as experience to our defense so I really hope that Wenger will try his possible best to make Samba wear the Red and White.

Owen Coyle has already told the media Vultures that he’ll fight to keep Cahill so we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed over the next few weeks that Wenger and Gazidis will work their magic on the defensive duo.

The most interesting piece of the day involves Arsenal been linked with that brawler Joey Barton. If a player like Barton signs a four-year contract with Arsenal, he’ll spend three seasons with the club and the last one in jail.

Let’s remember that it was Joey Barton’s rash tackle on Diaby that made the Frenchman to be brandished with a red card. As a player, Joey Barton is a slow poke that is just technically gifted with dead ball situations. He also has a nice crossing ability but the most annoying thing about watching Joey Barton play is seeing him take a penalty.

Cristiano Ronaldo spreads his legs like the way a peacock spreads his tail feathers anytime he wants to take a free kick. Joey Barton on the other hand plays his spot kicks like a cocky nitwit because he doesn’t even move back before taking the kick. Wojciech Szczesny faced him twice in February and he was beaten hands down by the bloke.

Moving over to player departures, the regular suspects are back in the news again. Contract rebel Samir Nasri has been linked with a move to Man City. Manchester City’s qualification to the Champions League now means that they will give Mancini the funds to buy all the players in the Milky Way so Nasri is part of the list because he’s just a star in the galaxy of footballers. Nasri’s agent is currently on talks with the club for his new bumper salary package so I don’t believe that Nasri would even think of leaving Arsenal, let alone going to Man City. He admitted a few days back that he still has a lot to learn and there’s no other club where his learning curve can be sky-rocketed like Arsenal Football Club.

The Arsenal hierarchy has told everyone that Fabregas’ number one ass sniffers are back on his case again. The chairman says,

“Yes, they have spoken to us about Cesc. They have been in touch. But so far they have not made a bid and we do not want to let him go. But he comes from Barcelona so it is understandable if he wanted to go back. However, they have not made an offer so far.”

It’s simple, they have not made a bid and Arsenal doesn’t want him to go so there’s no point drawing on the issue because we all know that Barcelona has openly undervalued our captain. With all the trophies they’ve won under Pep the Baldy, they still cannot afford £50m to pay for Francesc Fabregas.

The tweet of the day goes to Taipan Candido Uche

@Taipan: FIFA 12 wants to create a new game mode called Arsenal, where it’s impossible to win trophies.

That really hurt, I wanted you all to feel my pain.

    Barton…… Is Wenger just trying to annoy us Arsenal fans?
    If Arsenal were to sign this thug then they are no longer Arsenal!
    Their history will have come to an end.

    An Arsene Wenger end!

    It`s not July 1st yet so I`m on Wenger`s side. He hasn`t got much time and it would appear that, not only is there a dearth of talent at the right price available, he can`t off load the `has been`s`. Hmm!

      July 1st is when the Continental transfer window officially begins, NOT when the EPL transfer window closes so why is that a ¨deadline¨for Wenger?
      What European manager in his right mind would pay for dross like Squillaci, Denilson, Almunia,Rosicky or Eboue? Bendtner and Vela are worth a few quid but the latter group are over-the-hill or major underachievers. If AW can pawn them off onto some unsuspecting club then more power to him!

    Dear Mr Wenger,
    Forget about overpriced and over-rated Gary Cahill.
    Head back to Fulham and pick yourself up a consistent, goal scoring, Premier League experienced defender in Brede Hangeland.
    I also hear rumours of Fulham looking into the transfer of Carlos Kameni from Espanyol for $2 million.
    Let them stick it out with that old war-horse Schwarzer and hijack their deal.
    Kameni is young enough and good enough to provide much-needed competition for our young Pole.
    While you’re snooping around mid table EPL, also stop in and grab a bargain in Charles N’Zogbia.
    He’s a goalscorer, set piece option and still young.
    Regards,
    random hero

    Wenger has to make a statment of intent by getting the quality players who ill make a difference. Please no more unknown and kids from an obscure Faroe Islands making waves.If he were to do so,he can be assured Persie and other top players will want to leave.
    This will show the gunner’s lack of ambition.Football is like war. In a war you must have the best weapons not 80% of the potency of the latter.

      Err who was van persie or clichy when they signed for arsenal? were they reputable stars back then? I dont know which arsenal you are talking about but having the “best weapons” do not gurantee trophies. Accusing arsenal of signing unknowns when in fact arsenal did well with players like Varmaelen, Nasri, Chamakh for past seasons..

    Apparently Fifa 12 wants to bring out a new game mode in which it is impossible to score. They will call it Torres mode 😛 As a die-hard Arsenal fan, I prefer that one.

    We dont need Cahill. We just need Samba. 😀

    We need Cahill, Samba, Douglas Costa, Willian, M’Villa, Hazard, Benzema & Gervinho!

      Phew, so you are in favour of just a little bit of tweaking!

      That list certainly isn’t going to happen. Maybe 3 – Gervihno / Samba (or Cahill) / Willian. Alverez is still out there, so maybe him as well. Then again maybe none of the above!

    Mr. wenger is playing like the businessman he is. . . . .just waiting for the market to stabilise . . . the only problem is if it doesnt . . . then he’ll be forced to buy boys as always becoz boys are cheap!!!!!!

    I want Arsenal fans to think deep Wenger play us, he dont want 2 buy big players, he just want to use his policy when market is about to close then he will start buying young players. This is stupid

    Stop panicking!! It is only because a couple of teams have signed players early that everyone is worried about our perceived lack of movement. It is unusual that transfers are done this early. In fact it was just for some over-priced young players who just got knocked out of the U21’s. Nearly 50M for two of those players, what a joke! When Wenger buys youngsters he does so without spending silly money so everyone just relax and see what happens.

    Couldn’t agree more. This impatience occurs EVERY transfer Window as though early signings are essential for success. Softly,Softly,Catchee Monkey.

    If all these rumours of being linked to players are true, then i would like to think that AW is making sure that he gets someone who is on his list, and not going out empty if a deal does not come off. In previous seasons just having one target has cost us, so i think he now has multiple targets, listed in his order of preference, hence the many rumours.
    AW knows now that this is the time to start building on top of the foundations laid over the past years, especially as the money is now available, where it was not before.
    I know that if Arsenal gets some superstar, who is not “arsenal”(if you know what i mean) most fans will not be happy either.
