I wish I knew the answer…
According to the Agent of Real Betis starlet Alvaro Vadillo, the so called ‘next Christiano Ronaldo’ would prefer a move to Arsenal over any other Premier League club.
Speaking to Calciomercato, de Puerta said:
Yeah, he’d like Italy, being in a championship club with a lot of well-structured clubs, as well as of course he’d like England and Arsenal in particular.
But I bet we don’t end up signing him.
Porto striker Jackson Martinez is quoted as saying:
I cheered for Arsenal when I was a kid – I love their style of play. It’s flowing and open with a lot of first touch passes. It would be suitable for a player like me.
If I get a chance to play for a high level club like Arsenal I wouldn’t hesitate to accept it.
We won’t sign him either as suggestion is he’s on the verge of signing a new deal with Porto.
There have been other players over the years who have either used their Agent or spoken themselves about how they’d jump at the chance to sign us but it seems that when that happens, any chance of us getting that particular player goes up in smoke.
Alvaro Vadillo – young Spanish out and out winger who can play on both sides of the pitch and we so lack pace in our game and are in need of a winger. Not a left or right-sided midfielder, a winger, a proper winger!
He’s clearly rated quite highly but I wonder why we as a club don’t try and pursue signing him? Or maybe we will….
Jackson Martinez – a striker described as ”an out-and-out goalscorer, a front-to-goal centre-forward who can finish off both feet.”
Martinez has scored 38 goals in 44 appearances for Porto since 2012, the kind of goal return we lack and seriously need but will we try and sign him?
I doubt it but why not?
Julian Draxler is another continually linked to us and suggestion is he’d be willing to make the move to London but why are we dilly dallying around if he really is a player who Arsene Wenger wants to sign?
He has a clause in his contract which if met, Schalke will no doubt have to sell him and it’s not like we don’t have money to spend.
That’s just three players, any of whom would make this current Arsenal squad stronger.
All three would make our squad a lot lot deeper too and surely makes us favorites to win the PL….
If only football was that simple eh and maybe it is when you are willing and prepared to spend a few million pounds…
It appears that Arsene Wenger’s trip out of England was to Spain to watch Barcelona take on Levante. Reports in Spain suggest he was keeping a close eye on Pedro, Sergi Roberto and Cristian Tello.
Or was he really watching a Levante player?
8 days left Arsenal…
Finally, 34 year old Rachel Yankie has signed a new contract for the ladies side.
Guess the over 30 rule doesn’t apply for the ladies… lol
That’s your lot for another day…
