Arsenal Transfer News: Full-back Linked | South American On The Move?

By on August 11, 2011

Today has been another fascinating day filled with some interesting transfer news, gossip, speculation and rumors surrounding the Gunners. Without further ado, here is the Arsenal Transfer News Roundup.

Arsenal Interested In Inkoom

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal along with Fulham and Aston Villa, are interested in Dnipro and Ghanian international full back, Samuel Inkoom and that they’ll be watching him in action with Ghana against Nigeria at Watford.

Samuel Inkoom is a hard-working player who has good pace, stamina, good crosser, reliable and versatile as he can play on the wing as well. Inkoom can be a shrwed signing for the Gunners, but with Wenger already bringing in Carl Jenkinson as back-up to Bakary Sagna, this transfer looks unlikely.

Lorient Want Vela On Loan

According to France Football, French side Lorient are interested in signing Mexican international, Carlos Vela, on loan for 6 months. The report states that Lorient are depending on their good relationship with the Gunners, especially after the Koscielny deal to seal a loan deal for Vela.

In my opinion, I believe that Wenger should give Vela his chance, especially with Bendtner leaving as this could be Vela’s breakthrough season. He has all the talent and ability to succeed with the Gunners, so despite the good relations between the two clubs, I hope Vela plays for the Gunners this season.

Nasri To Seal Switch To Man City

According to various reports, Samir Nasri, who has been linked all summer with a move away from the Gunners is on the verge of a switch to Manchester City. Various reports say that the fee will be around 22 million pounds, while reports in France say that Nasri will be paid 185,000 pounds a week with Man City.

There could be truth to the speculation, especially after France’s national team manager Laurent Blanc, stated that Nasri is looking for a new club and that new club is most likely Manchester City.

What do you think? Should the Gunners go for Inkoom? Should they let go of Vela on another loan spell? Do you think that the Gunners should sell Nasri?

Cheers and take care,

    Nasri should be sold if the figures of 22 million are correct, he’s not going to sign a new contract we need that money to replace him,Don’t think a signing of inkoom is the right one at this point we need a defender with prem lge experience who can come straight in and do a job ,unfortunately Vela is a nice player but not capable of scoring the goals we need if RVP is not on the pitch so loan him out, sadly charmac started well last season but for some reason he looks way off the mark his first touch is poor and at the moment doesnt look to clever.

      If you look at that initial fee for Nasri £22m and consider we hsve landed Gervinho, Chamberlain and Jenkinson for an initial outlay of just £19m, you realise that it is good business. I am certain that Gervinho and Chamberlain will both be better wingers than Nasri and Jenkinson is already a better defender.

        agreed nasri is a lethal player no doubt, but to be honest he doesn’t quite fit into the arsenal line-up; his best posi is behind the striker as an attacking mid/forward. In cesc’s role he doesn’t provide the same creativity and likes to go on his own. Gervinho is an out and out attacker. Incredible movement, fast and knows when to play the ball and doesn’t always try to go solo. The ox, i don’t know much about him but he seems a great signing considering the hype around him and we beat manure and puddles. Jenkison for me is a steal! he looks hard as nails, smart strong and versitle! a huge improvement on eboue who was really just battling along at the end offering little! I feel a creator in the likes of Mata (who also is versatile) is the perfect signing now and would complete the attacking signings…since cesc appears as good as gorn!

    Yea I think it is good idea to go for Inkoom. The young is a very harding working guy and will be a great additon to our great club. He is versatile remember that.

    Honestly,i must say it ll be a bad idea if wenger sh’d allow NASRI go.As 4 VELA he nids more experience outside d EPL so he his free 2 go if possible 4 a yr.Inkoom is a nice option so go 4 him WENGER

    Shouldnt Arsenal be interested in Bastos from Lyon, to replace good old Clichy ? Only youngsters at LB and they are all a bit sensitive in their bodies

    I’m all for Ghanaian players, they are usually tough, hard-working, no-nonsense footballers of considerable skill. You can see that in some of the Ghanaian stars now playing in Europe: Kevin Prince Boateng, Kwadwo Asamoah, Sulley Muntari.
    The loan story seems quite likely, and I don’t think it really matters whether Vela goes to France or Spain. I see this season as his final opportunity to show that he can really be a creative player. So far, his only virtue were speed and an infectuous smile.
    As for Nasri, I don’t think it’s decided. Blanc is already well-known for his blunders, and this might be one of them, besides, I really think Nasri’s resolve will be tested if Cesc actually leaves. That would leave a gap behind RVP, and that gap is the position that Nasri loves to play in. So, it’s completely logical that he would blackmail the club with the Man City offer just to force Wenger to finally decide to get rid of Cesc. In other words, there are two possibilities – either he’s only in it for the money and he’ll leave anyway (in which case we shouldn’t worry, it means he isn’t worth it), or he’s trying to better his position in the team, and his leaving hinges on the decision on Cesc.
    I’ for one, am all for Cesc leaving, right now his playing style no longer suits Arsenal.

    ARSENAL SHOULD SIGN MARTIN MARVIN FROM FRANCE, THE BOY IS GOOD & BETTER THAN NASRI. I SAW THEM PLAY LAST NIGHT AND I WAS VERY IMPRESS AND I KNOW WENGER WILL NEVER LET THIS ONE PASS, I HAVE TRUST IN HIM. IT’S TIME WE LET THESE GREEDY BOYS LEAVE AS THEY WILL FAIL ONCE THEY LEFT THE CLUB WHEREVER THEY GO. I CAN’T WISH THEM LUCK AS I’LL BE AGAINST ARSENAL WISHES. WHY SHOULD I WISH THEM LUCK WHEN THEY STILL HAVE TO COMPETE WITH US. GO AND ROT IN MANCHESTER NASRI AND ON TOP OF THAT YOU’LL NEVER WIN ANY SILVERWARE COZ YOU ARE THE ONE WHO IS BAD LUCK. MARTIN MARVIN IS THE MAN AND I PLEDGE TO ARSENE AND ARSENAL BOARD NOT LOOK FAR FOR BETTER REPLACEMENT WHO CAN BRING BACK THE JOY BACK TO NORTH LONDON.

    GUNNER FOR LIFE

      This man should replace AW as he already got good replacement for amazing Nasri. COME ON GUNNERS SHOW US YOUR FAITH!

    I still think Nasri will stay since Cesc has gone, his position is now available, if he can sort the argument with AW out that is.

      Nasri is not interested in Cesc’s position only the £185,000 a week Man C are willing to pay him

    Thank goodness Inkoom is getting the recognition he deserves. I don’t know why he signed for that Ukrainian team in the 1st place. I saw him a couple of time @ Basel….Fantastic Player… But would wish he gets into Chelsea or Aston Villa rather…
