Arsenal Transfer News: Clichy Replacement Linked | £12m Striker Bid | Deal Off

By on July 5, 2011

Clichy Officially Leaves For Man City

The anticipated transfer of Gael Clichy to Manchester City has been confirmed today. Manchester City reportedly paid around 7 million pounds, to sign the French international whose contract was going to expire next season. Clichy has been a loyal and dedicated servant and player to the Gunners, making 264 appearances, scoring 2 goals in his 8 years with Arsenal. I wish him all the best…. except when he plays against the Gunners. Au Revoir Gael!

Arsenal Interested In Doyle

Many reports are filtering around that the Gunners are interested in signing Wolverhampton forward and Irish international, Kevin Doyle. The reports state that the Gunners will pay as much as 12 million pounds. To be honest, I’m not too keen on the Gunners signing Doyle. He’s hard-working and a good player, but for someone who doesn’t score much, 12 million pounds is too pricey.

Zamparini: I Believe That Alvarez Will Now Sign For Inter

The loud-mouthed President of Palermo has struck again. Maurizio Zamparini, who said that Ricardo Alvarez will sign for Arsenal, now says that Inter are going to sign him.

VOdds

“We were close to signing [Ricky] Alvarez for half the price they will now pay for him but my colleagues took it easy and no agreement was reached,” Zamparini bemoaned to Sky Italia.

“Where he will go? He was going to sign for Arsenal but Inter Milan made a move and that is where I believe he will go.”

Is it just me? Or do the Gunners take too long with their transfer deals, e.g. Gervinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ricardo Alvarez, etc. If the Gunners are serious about acquiring Alvarez, pay up.

Arsenal Interested In Signing Cissokho As Replacement For Clichy

A fascinating report by Footybunker, that state that the Gunners are interested in signing Lyon’s left back, Aly Cissokho. The report also states that the Gunners have made enquiries over his availability and are willing to pay around 9-11 million pounds for his services. I always have been a big fan of Aly Cissokho, especially after his quality performances against Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was at Porto. This season, though, he wasn’t at his best and was criticized by fans and journalists alike, for his lack of concentration and discipline. I believe though, that he’s going through a rough patch and needs a fresh start. He can be a great signing for the Gunners, has all the ability and talent to succeed at Arsenal.

What do you think? What are your opinions on Clichy’s transfer? Do you want Wenger to sign Doyle? Should the Gunners pay up and sign Alvarez? Is Cissokho a suitable replacement for Clichy?

Please share your thoughts and opinions.

Cheers and take care,

    I have not heard of Cissokho but from your report would sound like exactly what we need, an experienced quality fullback because Gibbs is not ready for the first team. Alvarez should have been tied up weeks ago but as you point out all of our signings are protracted affairs, presumably because Arsene likes to haggle, does not matter to him what the price is, he always wants it cheaper. As has been pointed out on other blogs, Fergie shops at Harrods and Arsene shops at Asda and still haggles over the price. Why do we want Doyle, he is only average and we need top quality,12 mil, are you having a laugh. Gervinho on the wing and put Walcott down the middle to assist RVP, sorted. Walcott would give most central defenders nightmares about how to play him, with his pace they would have to double up on him creating space for others to benefit. We do still need to sign Samba and Cahill and I think that we will be sorted for next season.

    You know one thing, i am tired of these players being linked with arsenal but nothing turns up. Alvarez is out of the hand now and samba is there but wenger doesn’t want to give more than 10.5 mill whereas rovers want 12. I mean, come on!!!!
