Arsenal Almost Certain of signing (another) teenager
According to a ‘Mirror Exclusive’ in of course, the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to complete the signing of long term transfer target Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain….. for a hefty fee of 12 million pounds. The question now is, how did English youngsters such costing so much? First Henderson, then Jones, now Chamberlain, and I’m very sure that we’re going to see a huge move for Ipswich Town’s Connor Wickham very soon. Wow, world gone mad.
Apparently, Arsene Wenger is supposedly upset after losing two battles for English youngsters and he wants to sign Chamberlain quickly to ensure that he is not snatched away by Manchester United. Well, Chamberlain is eager to go to Arsenal, apparently, here’s what he said last month:
To develop at a place like Arsenal can’t be a bad thing. In my eyes, I’d like him to go there as soon as possible, and continue his development
Chamberlain claimed last month
Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak has resigned himself to starting life at another Premier League club after making just seven appearances as Edwin Van Der Sar’s deputy last season and the Old Trafford club signing Atletico Madrid’s David de Gea.
Well, I guess that’s just The Sun reiterating the obvious, with pretty much everyone except De Gea himself realizing the inevitability of this pending move to the Red Devils. I mean, just move already!
Liverpool Bid 5 million pounds for Clichy
Liverpool have launched a 5 million pound bid for Arsenal left back Gael Clichy. 20 million pounds for Henderson, 5 million pounds for Clichy? The maths must be wrong somewhere along the lines, because I think that, as a Liverpool fan, a great deal for us should Arsenal be tempted to sell.
More Fabregas Gossip
MundoDeportivo.com claims that Wenger has told Fabregas: “I will let you go to Barcelona or Real Madrid, but not to the Premier League.” Well, I’m very sure that he in fact doesn’t want to go to the Premier League anyway, so to the list of the painfully obvious. I personally think that there is only one place other than Arsenal he belongs, that’s Barcelona, and second point I’d like to make, I’m pretty sure NOONE (except Man City) will manage to buy him anyway, with AW always putting up unrealistic transfer valuations.
