Arsenal After 37-Goal Hitman But Wenger Would Prefer To Splash £6m On Frenchman

By on May 9, 2013

With the summer transfer window set to re-open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal are linked with Wilfied Bony and Loic Remy.

Wilfred Bony

Arsene Wenger is clashing with the Arsenal board over whether to make a move to sign Wilfried Bony or Loic Remy this summer, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims Wenger has had his eye on Queens Park Rangers striker Remy for some time but pulled out of a January move due to concerns over the players injury record. The French international eventually signed for Harry Redknapp’s QPR and has proved to be an astute signing, scoring 5 goals in 12 appearances.

It seems he’s done enough to persuade Wenger to finally make a formal move with the Star suggesting the boss wants the board to sanction a £6m bid for the 26-year-old at the end of the season, which will be enough to trigger the strikers relegation release clause.

However, the newspapers claims that the Gunners hierarchy would prefer to sign Vitesse Arnhem’s Ivory Coast hitman Bony, who could be available for around £7m this summer following a stunning season in Holland where he’s scored an incredible 37 goals in just 32 starts.

The 24-year-old is desperate to play in the Premier League, recently saying:

“I’m very interested in the Premier League and the atmosphere in England, it’s a wonderful league and we will see what happens.

“For me the Premier League is the top league in Europe but the Bundesliga is also good. France, Italy and Spain, they’re all good too but England I think would be perfect.” Bony is quoted as saying by the Star

It’s a difficult one. Remy has the advantage of Premier League and Champions League experience but you can’t argue with Bony’s goal-scoring record this season. Personally, I’d be happy for either to sign for Arsenal this summer as long as we also signed another versatile forward such as Stevan Jovetic.

    So why not sign both of them(Bony and Remy) PLUS Jovetic. Whatever the decision, it musnt affect Jovetic.

    Frankly speaking, Bony is the man to for. Even if Remy have an exposure to ucl and the epl, scoring incredibly 37 goals in just 32 matches, definetly he’s a force to be reckon with. Let’s expose him ‘arsenal’

    Sign Jovetic and either Bony or Remy then add Benteke to be playing behind a striker to be switching with Carzola.

    To me any of the 3 boys can make a change. Just make sure that at least a world class attacker is added to the squad

      ‘wat is dis french collection wenger keeps buyin,dat are nt doing anything 4 d club’ (interesting use of the english language, but there you go)….Vieira, Petit, Pires & less we forget HENRY!! Are you completely simply or just don’t have any appreciation for what ‘dis french collection’ & manager has done for Arsenal?! Go and ‘support’ some other team as you are surplus to requirements.

    its certainly jovetic and bony for me…commom pple, wisen up!…aw do u ignore such young quality….bony will surely find a way to fit in.37 goals in a season is nt something to b overlooked just cuz he aint got epl xperience…n jovetic’s quality is already evident

    Julio caesar, Fellaini, Richard(utility like manU jones), isco, jovetic and remy(incase jovetic injures and can also cover left wing position)… That’s d answer to arsenals problem sell park, chamakh, bendtner,santos to complete d funds for transfer..all players to cost 80 million

    Jovetic, bony & benteke, dis players ll’ mk d difference 4 arsenalfc trust me, remy has a bad history wit injuries, signing remy ll’ increase d injury prone pleyers we av lik (Diabi, fabiansky). No nid 4 dis frence players, cos they dnt do well 4 arsenal. Buy good players nd stop frence connectn. Sell Bentna, Chamack, Park C.Y & djourou.

    Arsenal should just go ahead and sign all the 3 players namely Jovetic,Remy & Bony to beef up the attacking option.
