Arsenal Transfer News: Barca Striker Linked | Record Bid Lined-up | Bid Rejected

By on June 30, 2011

There is some interesting transfer news, rumors, gossip and speculation surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Interested In Signing Pedro

A very, very interesting and fascinating piece of news. Reports are filtering around stating that the Gunners along with other top clubs all over Europe, are interested in signing Barcelona star and Spain international, Pedro Rodriguez. The report states that Pedro’s future as a Barcelona player is in doubt, due to the club’s ongoing pursuit of Udinese’s Alexis Sanchez. Pedro would be a quality signing for the Gunners, but this is absolutely far-fetched and rumor, and highly unlikely to ever happen. Pedro is highly regarded by Barca and by his manager, Pep Guardiola and I highly doubt he’ll be leaving anytime soon. Besides, the only possible way we can acquire or get anywhere near Pedro, is if we offered a certain Cesc Fabregas in exchange.

Arsenal Prepare Record Bid to Sign Lukaku

Another interesting piece of news, a report by Caught Offside, states that the Gunners are preparing a record bid to sign Anderlecht and Belgian international starlet, Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku, looks to be on his way out this season and is interesting many European clubs, including Chelsea and Real Madrid. Lukaku, has all the qualities to be a huge star, especially in the Premier League where has the physique and ability to take the league by storm. Though, I doubt he’ll be displaying it with the Gunners, he’s likely to join Chelsea next season, so again another far-fetched rumor.

10 Million Pound Bid For Diaby Rejected

This piece of news comes via a fellow Arsenal blog, the Gunnerblog. The blog reports that an unnamed Turkish club offered 10 million pounds to acquire the services of the French international. I honestly would’ve accepted the offer, especially as Diaby is mainly a squad player, who’s inconsistent and injury-prone, so that’s a pretty good offer in my opinion. It looks though, Wenger wants to keep him as back-up, especially if Denilson leaves.

What do you think? Should Wenger go for Lukaku? Would you have accepted the offer proposed for Diaby?

Cheers and take care,

    Diaby should’ve gone. This is supposed to be the window where we clear the dead wood and bring in some quality. Diaby has had 5 seasons to prove himself and due to inconsistancy and injury hasn’t even been able to nail down a starting role. We should’ve took the money. Lukaku or Pedro would be quality signings but if it were up to me then Bezema would be first choice as he’s tailor made for the gunners…

    We,can’t sell both Cesc & Nasri, somebody totally new won’t be able to fill the gap.He is going to need time to adjust that could mean no silverware for another season.

    wenger we don’t want daiby in our club this season. sell him and buy melo to replace him. When u price too much u attrate orther club intrest and if u sell fab and nasri u most buy a matured cretive midfileder who will make arsenal game intresting not winger. Don’t hope only on wilsher dat is the heart of arsenal game. U knows how deficut we fine to get goal in the abesent of fab. Now we are to lose both fab and nasri. Pls sell daiby to any best offer
