Arsenal Block Liverpool Move As Both Chase Duo

By on June 22, 2011

Gael Clichy

Liverpool target Gael Clichy is set to secure a move to AS Roma, with the Mirror reporting that the Italian outfit are set to secure a £7million move for the French full back.

Arsenal chiefs were originally holding out for £10million for Clichy, but Roma supremo Walter Sabatini hopes to knock down the price.

Sabatini is under orders to secure a move for the 25-year old and will consider a player exchange to land the French international. Clichy’s contract with Arsenal runs out next summer and the Gunners will be desperate to cash in on the defender or risk losing him for nothing next summer.

Wenger refuses to sell Clichy to one of his rivals and will sanction a move to Roma, leaving Liverpool to turn their attentions to either Newcastle full back Luis Enrique or Everton defender Leighton Baines, but ironically they will face competition for both from Arsenal who will be looking for a replacement for Clichy.

    All very well but if Clichy does not want to go to Italy, Wenger can’t make him.

    Let’s face it, it’s not the friendliest of destinations for non white footballers, ask Paddy Viera, Balotelli or Diarra, who reportedly refused to move there from Real.

      Arsenal 4 ever….. Name calling is a sure sign of a childish mind. And what has him being French got to do with anything, or are you rascist as well as childish. Show a bit of respect even if you do not approve of Wengers management.

    Haha, you lot can have clichy. Huge amount of respect for him as hesmstill an invincible, so will always have a little place in my heart, but he’s gone downhill and so many mistakes creep in his game so you’re welcome to him now. Plus you will pay way over the odds anyway

    It was being reported that Clichy turned down 80k a week. Yeah thats right 80K A WEEK>>>I’m glad he did not worth It IMO let him move on so we can recoup some money and get a fighter at LB like Baines.
