Junior Hoilett - A wanted man

Contrasting reports have emerged over the future of Blackburn winger Junior Hoilett with both Arsenal and Tottenham reported to be leading the race for his signature.

The Canada-born midfielder will be out of contract in the summer and has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs after some impressive displays for struggling Blackburn this season.

The Metro claim that Arsenal have now moved ahead of Liverpool, Tottenham and Man City in the race to land the 21-year-old, with manager Arsene Wenger believed to be a fan of his style of play, which is similar to current Arsenal players Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

They also report that Hoilett is attracting interest from Bayern Munich but the winger would prefer to remain in the Premiership next season.

However, the Mirror believe it is in fact Spurs who are favourites to sign Hoilett after sending chief scout Ian Broomfield to watch him in action during Blackburn’s draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

Interesting stuff and whoever does end up signing the pacey youngster will have grabbed themselves a bargain, as Blackburn are only likely to receive a nominal fee for his services, with the exact amount settled by a tribunal.

    It’s hard to see Arsenal getting Hoilett unless there is a purging of current players in his position. However if Arsharvin and Benayoun leave who knows – the price is definitely right.

    I doubt it. I don’t think an extra .8 turnover per game would make a diefrefnce. The problem I see with Ramsey is that too often he turns upfield and cannot find a pass, either because he can not see it, or the other players were not available. Anyway, there could be many reasons Arsenal played well yesterday, -because the wingers perfromed, or Coq at right back and TV growing into the left back position (although he still looks afraid to take anyone on in the opposition third), Theo finding his form, but for how long?btw, I would prefer to see Rosicky get a run at the ATM position Because when he has the ball he runs with his head up, still don’t see either of them scoring, they seem cursed to blaze over or get blocked. 0 0
