TRANSFER NEWS: Wenger To Bid For £20m Bundesliga Ace

By on July 21, 2011

Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger has been linked with a surprising move for Bayern Munich’s Frank Ribery.

Wenger tried to sign the French international before Ribery signed for the German giants back in 2006 and again was linked with a move just last summer but was out-priced for the winger after the club demanded over £40million for him.

But after another frustrating season for Ribery, both on and off the pitch Bayern are considering a fresh start and are prepared to accept around £20million for their star forward. Allegations surrounding the Frenchman’s personal life has tarnished the clubs image and Bayern are set to cash in on the former Marseille man.

Wenger is currently in the market for an attacking midfielder which suggestions that Samir Nasri, Cesc Fabregas and Andrei Arshavin could all be sold this summer. A move could still be in doubt with the 28-year old prone to injury, the tricky winger has yet to play his 100th game for Bayern despite making his move over four seasons ago.

    Wenger always link with any player. But at the end of day he couldn’t sign any player. At this time he should sign better players than small boys.

    Ribery to Arsenal? that is a joke, Ribery is paid around 150,000 and since when has Arsenal paid such a wage? Fellow Gunners lets sit with our hands crossed and wait for the moment AW will leave Arsenal then we may think of a trophy. I appreciate his work and achievments but its like he has run out of ideas.

    Are you lot really as thick as you sound? Wenger hasn’t told anyone who his targets are; all this is pure speculation by journalist. It’s laughable that you blame the manager for media speculation

    WE DONT WANT RIBERY, HE IS OVER-RATED AND IF WENGER BUYS HIM, IT WILL BE AS GOOD AS CHUCKING 20 MILLION POUNDS OF OUR MONEY WE SEEM NOT TO HAVE, TO FRANCE AND GERMANY.
    WHO’S DREAMING UP THIS SHITE? HAVE THEY NO SENSE, THEY NEED THEIR HEAD EXAMINED!
