Temperatures are rising it seems, and the race has final begun to sign players. Well, according to reports.
Valencia keeper Vicente Guaita is due to begin talks with us today according to Superdeporte. He’s 26 years old and 6′ 3″ and I only know that because I looked it up. This story has to be rubbish though, the player has a get out fee of 30 million euros.
Yoann Miguel Gourcuff – the attacking midfielder who has been linked to Arsenal for what seems like, since he was born!
Daniele De Rossi – a defensive midfielder who has been with Roma since the year 2000. He’s now 30 years old.
Yohan Cabaye - a French international footballer who plays as a box-to-box midfielder and is described as a player who possesses “excellent vision, great ball control”, and “provides technical quality”. He’s also known for his free kick and penalty-taking abilities.
Atsuto Uchida - a Japanese footballer, who plays for Schalke 04 and the Japan national football team as a right back.
Micah Richards – Well we all know about him. In my opinion he’d be a great signing and of course, he’s a Gooner.
If we are to believe all the stories, rumours and the media network, all of the above are in the trolley and it just needs that trolley to arrive at the checkout and the Visa card to be accepted!!
One bid which has been confirmed and very quickly rejected, is the one for the Newcastle man and Alan Pardew is fuming. However, the player may have had his head turned having seen that we are interested as he was left out of Newcastles team last night for their fixture against Manchester City.
Something must be going on there, otherwise Pardew would not have left out a player who has been a huge servant for the Geordies since his time up there.
If he ends up joining us, would he make fans happy, or would he be considered to be ‘typical rush signing’?
He’s 27 years old, experienced, he’s Premier League ready and he’s proved. isn’t that what we need?
But, as usual, the offer we have made is nowhere near Newcastles valuation and I strongly suspect that we have little to no chance of signing him. In any case, PSG have joined the race for his signature……….
Would you be happy with ALL of the above?
Plus a striker of course…..
That’s it for another day….
