Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs Battling For Leagues Most Wanted Player

By on August 3, 2011

Newcastle’s Joey Barton has just become the Premierships most wanted man, with several clubs believed to have made an enquiry about his services.

The outspoken midfielder is not wanted by the Magpies after the club have informed the 28-year old he is no longer needed and will be allowed to leave for free this summer.

The combative midfielder was linked with a surprising move to Arsenal last month, with the Gunners looking to add extra bite in their youthful squad. However, Arsenal will have to fight of interest from local neighbours Tottenham who have also expressed an interested in the former Man City midfielder.

Barton will have no shortage of takers with Bolton manager Owen Coyle confirming his interest in the player.

“He’s a very talented player. We know that,” Coyle told Sky Sports News.

“There’s no doubt Joey will have very attractive offers because he’s a talented player.

“We’ll continue to bring the right players to football club. Hopefully I can have one or two new faces, ideally before the QPR game, but certainly before the end of the transfer window.

“Every manager is in the same boat. We’re trying to improve our squads and trying to do the best business we can for our clubs.”

It is believed that 2 premier league clubs who finished in the top 4 last season, believed to be Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as four others, are interested in signing Barton.

    Not sure about that. For nothing on his footballing ability alone, it appears a no brainer but what about his temperament? We all know of his lout like personality and I’m not sure how he’ll take to a rotation policy after guaranteed first team at Newcastle. Interesting though to see how this develops. One lump and just a suggestion of milk please.

    He could do for Arsenal what Cantona did for Utd , he was a rebal and very famous for it why not? one thing for sure he would add extra steel in our defence , for nothing , no brainer.. get him Arsene you can’t do any worse then some of the players we have there ..

      The difference is that Cantona was worth all the trouble because he was a class act and could win a game by himself – Barton on the other hand is only a half decent player who has the potential to destroy a dressing room by himself.

    I believe everyone needs a big break and if arsenal took him they can’t do any worse then they are doing , bigger club ,bigger picture, bigger performance , and a man of steel , i believe he could do a job , lets face it he’s free so if he don’t perform we sell for a couple of mil, and i thought Arsene was a shrewed business man , he needs Coco to ran the club and concemtrate on football affairs , lol lol

    I hope he goes to Chelsea. He can do what he has done a few times. Destroyed the dressing room and moved on. Please whoever may it be, get him to Chelsea ASAP. Oh, I’m a Utd fan.
