Midfielder Declares Interest In Joining Arsenal

By on May 28, 2012

With the summer transfer window set to open, we’ll aim to keep you up-to-date with all the transfer news involving Arsenal. Today sees an Uzbekistan midfielder declare his interest in moving to North London.

Odil Ahmedov

Anzhi Makhachkala midfielder Odil Ahmedov has claimed he wants to join Arsenal, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

The Uzbekistan enforcer has previously been linked with a move to the Emirates and the Mail suggests that the Gunners have been tracking the midfielder for some time and considered making their interest official last summer.

The 24-year-old enjoyed an excellent season with Anzhi Makhachkala and was voted as their player of the season for 2011, despite the big-spending Russians bringing in the likes of Samuel Eto’o and Yury Zhirkov.

Quoted in the Daily Mail, Ahmedov has revealed his desire to play in England or Spain and sounded out Arsenal as his preferred destination.

‘I’m really happy to be playing at Anzhi, but I want to try England or Spain,’ he said.

‘All the clubs in Spain and England are wonderful, but I would like, if I had the choice, to play for Arsenal.’

Ahmedov is a 6ft defensive midfielder, who is also comfortable playing at centre back, and may be considered by Arsene Wenger should his move to land Rennes ace Yann M’Vila fall through.

    How big were the likes of RVP, Fabregas and Nasri when we bought them? These Arsenal players have developed a very bad habit of money madness. Are they bigger than Liverpool or Tothenham players who would not rush to Man City even without Champ league football for years? If RVP wants to, I wish him very safe journey. The money offer is tempting.

    Wenger should buy new strong strikers not only when van persie leaves but help out during injuries that the players sustain this will help out ensure stagnant progress of the team.
