Arsenal Transfer News: Wenger Wants £55m German Pair

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could finally be set to splash some cash this summer, after the Daily Mail reported that the Frenchman is lining up a £55m double swoop for Lukas Podolski and Mario Gotze.

The report claims that Wenger will look to end Arsenal’s seven year wait for a trophy by freshening up his squad this summer and has identified the German pair, but his plans could depend on whether we qualify for the Champions League next season or not.

Personally i’d love to see these two in the Red & White next season. Podolski is a versatile 26-year-old with can play out wide or up front and has vast experience having already assessed 95 caps for Germany, scoring 45 goals in the process. He would certainly add some much-needed depth and quality to our attacking options.

Gotze is no doubt a huge talent and to sign him would be a real coup for Arsenal. We saw just how good the 19-year-old is when we played Dortmund in the group stages of the Champions League and he would add some creativity to a stale-looked central midfield.

Will it happen? Well, it’s a little early for transfer rumours really and usually i’d just dismiss this as pure speculation but the original article came from German source Bild, so perhaps they know something we don’t. I’m still sceptical on whether Wenger would spend such an amount though.

    ‘Predictable, weak and lacking a winning mentality’ – the description by DB(10).
    This 2 players are a much desired addition, but I fear it might not be enough.

    Well at least they would probably have German type (English type) bottle and not fold up like so many of the Latins.

    We need to buy Mario Gotze, Lukas Podolski,Eden Hazard, Daniel Sturridge, and a new good defender. But bring James Shea (young 20 year age)up to the bench. Sell Chamakh,Arshavin, Diaby, metersacker, rosicky,santos, walcott, fabianski, Gervinho, squillaci and don’t get Benayoun back onloan! Keep Arsene Wenger to see what he does in the summer.

      u play fifa too much. you can not sell all these players because they are on a high wage and nobody wants to pay them money arsenal is paying them,thats why they (bentdner,vela,went out on loan instead of getting sold.gervinho,metersacker,santos have yet to prove them selves by your way we should have 12 players all together and no bench.

        I do play fifa 12 career mode alot as arsenal but we won’t have 12 players. We’ll have (Gk)szczesny,(Rb)Sagna,(Cb)Vertonghen,(Cb)Vermaelen,(Lb)Gibbs,(Rm)Chamberlain,(Cm)Gotze,(Cm)Wilshere,(Lm)Hazard,(Cf)Podolski,(Cf)Van Persie. Bench:(Gk)Shea,(Cb)Kosienly,(Cdm)Coquelin(Cdm)Song,Cm)Ateta,(Cm)Ramsey,(Cf)Matias Suarez. OK don’t sell Chamakh, rosicky, diaby and some others for the back up in-case any players get injured. But swap players around from bench and fist team. Write Back!

    I agree with the other guy , ur playing to much Fifa , gotze will never be a gunner, he will sign for Munich , and also arsenal venger won’t spend 20+ million on a failed 26 year old bayern player , he will look into French ligue 1 for gomis or valbuena ,

      Ok, you guys are nuts, do you support arsenal or not, if you go on internet, you must have seen that Wenger want’s to sign gotze and podolski for 55 million, then stan said he will give wenger 100 million, so we have enough money for hazard and a new defender. And we are in talks of breaking the wage budget.
