Arsenal transfer rumours-Mbiwa, Roguljic and N’Koulou

Arsenal have been linked with the 22-year old Cameroon international Nicolas N’Koulou before and are keeping an eye on the talented defender who signed for French Ligue 1 side Marseille last summer. He has continued to improve and is drawing the attention of quite a few big clubs, including Chelsea and AC Milan.

If Arsene Wenger is keen on signing the player, he may have to make his move soon, as Barcelona are said to be thinking seriously about him to supplement their back line, according to Talksport.

With Carlos Puyol and Gerrard Pique being injured at the same time, Barcelona have realised that they need more defenders. The club have had to use makeshift defenders in recent weeks, including Alex Song.

Another defender playing in France that the Gunners are known to be interested in may soon be off the market. Montpellier are about to offer a new and improved contract to their captain, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

The 23-year old has less than a year left on his current deal, so if he does not sign a new deal then the club may be tempted to sell him in January while they can still receive something for him.

The Sun reports that Wenger is about to offer around £1.5 million for a 16-year old Croatian called Ante Roguljic. The youngster currently plays for NK Adriatic Split and the Croatian under-17 team as an attacking midfielder.

    Mbiwa is a quality versatile defender bags load of experience and a captain at just 23 he would be a superb buy.

    there is an interesting article on rvp of how he told wenger & gazdis which players to sign appoint an outsider as wenger’s assistant in place of steve bould (rumored to be bergkamp) because steve bould was considered a yes man + he demanded change in transfer polciy & wage structure when these talks failed he decided to leave he wasn’t happy about podolski’s signing his attitude changed a bit after cazorla’s signing but still didn’t made much difference

    We are the best counter attacking team in the league we can beat united provided we defend well. Giroud is getting better game by game and has a hammer of a left foot!

    I think all 3 would be good signings. the 16 year old will be an academy purchase so has no impact on the first team budget he would be part of bradys budget. the 2 defenders would be great replacements for squillaci djourou and santos with currently no more academy defenders looking ready yet to make the step up.

    Speaking of liam brady can ADMIN do a piece on the youth set up we dont seem to have been producing much i mean eisfeld,ryo,gnarby have all been bought along with bellerin and toral. With the set up we have id like to know what local kids coming through apart from yennaris cause from the outside it seems quite bare.

    Never heard of Rogulic but i hope we sign him, just coz he is a Croat, ever since Davor Suker i would love another hopefully in the same mould, he had a bit of ian wright about him when shooting inside the box and a bit of a bergkamp about him when shooting outside the box, also he was so calm and collected also being tall and brave with not being bad in the air, it were a shame that we couldnt sign him younger as Arsene wished

    as for Mbiwa i believe he will go to Italy as he will rarely get a game with ourselves, he done a great job at keeping Giroud in his pocket when we played them, but that just might be coz of them training together and knowing eachothers game, he does look a very strong and quick player though

    then there is Nkoulou, i would much prefer Arsene to do his talent spotting in Germany and Spain as we missed out on getting some of the best players from Belguim wich for us were unusual, we need to be quick in pouncing on the very best talents as we have done with the French wich now looks exhausted

    If Arsenal were to sign Mbigwa.. i wonder who will be out?

    Per? Kos at the moment is already finding it hard to find a first team place…

    will they be happy to warm the bench and play FA and League cup games only?

    they will get more games unless there are major injury to CBs..
