Arsenal….Who next?


By Guest Writer Sean Oakes.

With Marouane Chamakh signed, sealed and delivered. Just who is next on Arsene Wengers hit-list? Many fans would like big name signings but with that comes big fees and big salaries. As we know this is not the Arsenal way.

Robert Green

As many have seen and said a goalkeeper looks to be imperative. Many names have been thrown around including Gigi Buffon, Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart. I think the solution is far nearer to home though in the shape of West Ham and England number 1 Robert Green. Arsene Wenger is a long time fan of the former Norwich keeper and everything about the deal would tick all of Wengers boxes.

Gary Cahill

The next one would be Bolton’s Gary Cahill who is the type of no nonsense centre half that Arsenal would be interested in. Arsene Wenger has struck up quite a friendship with Owen Coyle and was impressed with the way the Bolton boss handled Jack Wilshere last season. Don’t be surprised to see a deal involving the two clubs for Cahill and maybe a couple of Arsenals youngsters going on loan to Bolton this summer.

If the Fabregas deal does happen then i expect the the money will be spent. But on who? If it was my choice i would spend all of it on Yoann Gourcuff and Eden Hazard.

Yohann Gourcuff

Gourcuff is a wonderful player who in time i expect will be far superior than any other of the so called “New Zizou’s”. Gourcuff has a very quick and intelligent football brain and would slot into the side seamlessly. Fabregas will be a hard act to follow but the young Breton would be the best man for the job.

Eden Hazard

As for Hazard well in my opinion it is only a matter of time before this boy is the best player in the world! Yes he is that good. He has the balance of a dancer and the tricks of a magician. To spend £15million now on him will look like a pittance in two or three years time. The word genius is banded about far too much these days but this guy is definitely one…

Who else do Arsenal fans think Arsene Wenger should buy? Please leave your comments below…

    Wenger should sign Igor Akinfeev as goal keeper instead of schwarzer.He’s 37 when Akinfeev is 24 and still agile and more active.

    Oakes has got it so right. His “nominees” for Wenger to buy are spot on. The truth is this classy Club is beginning to loose some of its former lustre and money just has to be spent – in a few large amounts to acquire the quality players needed to retain the Club’s so-far excellent image, and maybe collect some silver! Fabregas will be hard to replace if he goes but his price-tag should be big enough to enable Wenger so buy what he needs, they are well placed financially already. If history is anything to go buy former “irreplaceables” have been replaced quite successfully – and most of those “irreplaceables” have not performed all that well for their new Clubs, even the much admired Henri!
    Good luck, Arsene, you will need it!

      i like your comment. Thats the attitude arsenal shall carry. Dont forget to sign Gourcuff, Schweinsteiger for Midfield.
      and also Subotic and Mertsacker for defence. ARSENAL really would be in profit and in Strength.

    Fabregas + 10 million = Gourcuff + Schweinsteiger + any 1 from (Cahill-OR-Laurent Koscielny) + any 1 from (Mertsacker-OR-Subotić-OR-Mats Hummels)
    And dont be in impression that Hazard is available for 15 million. He is currently rated 35 millions approx.
    Arsenal need him but already same style players like Rosicky, Arshavin, Nasri, Walcott, eboue (?), so either get rid of Selfish Arshavin for 25 million and buy Hazard the young wonderkid.

    1 word for Arsenal is Experience we need a players who have been there and done it. and quite frankly Joe Cole would be a brilliant signing.
