Well if some of the reports in the media are true, then yes, its really possible.
This story has been rumbling away and the latest update suggests that David Villa is ready to ask his club to let him move to London for the sake of his career, one which hasn’t got too many years left to it.
Barca also still owe us money from Alex Song’s summer transfer according to The Daily Mail so this story could turn out to have a little more to it.
But, Wenger needs to gets his backside into gear if he truly wants Villa as that lot down the road are interested in signing him and they won’t hang around. The other option of course seems to be Adrian Lopez but he’s got a £14 million release clause in his contract, and we all know that’s a lot of money for Arsene!
Surely the club have to seriously be looking at a goal scorer though, especially now our top striker Chamakh has been allowed to move to West Ham. Sadly it’s only a loan but who knows what the future holds for him…
With Johan Djourou and Squillaci likely to leave, Wenger is now reported to be looking at West Bromwich defender Jonas Olsson. Despite Clarke insisting he is going nowhere having not long signed a new contract, it’s suspected that a £3 million release clause was included in that deal.
That’s a price Wenger likes!!
Not quite in black and white but…..
It bothers me when we don’t win trophies because I’m not here to watch other people win them.
It’s important for us to give our best on Sunday, but let me remind people I have won the FA Cup four times.
It’s not pleasant that people talk about eight years without a trophy, but the only way to do something about it is to win.
Eight years without a trophy would be hard to stomach wouldn’t it but it’s not about the trophies these days, it’s about not looking or playing like a team/squad who are capable of breaking that drought.
As for the ‘I have won it four times’ comment. Maybe that’s half the problem, the manager needs to stop looking back on what he has done and start looking at would he could be doing.
Living in the past is not the way forward Arsene but then that’s probably half of our clubs problem…..
Wenger’s comments about this transfer window being a ‘very calm one’ suggests he’s not about to get too involved in it but there is rumour around this morning that we have agreed a deal for MLS striker C. J. Sapong.
He was born on December 27, 1988 in Manassas, Virgin and currently plays for Sporting Kansas City.
Surely that has to be a big fat fib!!
That’s it for another day, have a good one….
