Arsenal WILL sign Spanish striker

Why I’m certain that Wenger will get a striker from Spain in January by KJ

There’s been a lot of talk about Wenger buying a striker in January as Arsenal clearly need one. However, one of our targets Klaas Jan Huntelaar has signed a 2 year contract extension at Schalke 04. In my opinion, that’s brilliant news for Arsenal as he’s not close to being a striker good enough for Arsenal. However, Arsenal are looking through La Liga for our next striker as their economy is in a mess at the moment and many teams are in debt. This means Wenger can find a brilliant player at a good price. Here’s the targets:

Adrian Lopez: We’ve been interested in the 24 year old Spaniard for quite some time. He’s been hailed as the next David Villa and will definitely add a different dynamic to the team. He’s good with his feet and has brilliant movement. He wants to move as he’s failed to sign a new contract with Atletico and is unhappy. He also has a lot of years left in him as well. Price will be roughly £13 million.

David Villa: Recently, we’ve become interested in the illustrious striker that is David Villa. He’s won everything. He does everything a striker should do brilliantly and has a wealth of experience. He has that winning mentality that this team could really do with. He wants a move because he feels he needs to be the main striker. He’s been benched as a result and is very likely to move away from Barcelona. However, he just turned 31 and may only have 3-4 years left in him at best. Price will be £13 million.

Roberto Soldado: This striker is quite different to the others. He’s more of a fox in the box but does know how to pass. He’s very clinical and is at his prime. He’s doing well with Valencia and has no real reason to move. Price will be £15 million.

All 3 players are brilliant in their own right. I’d personally want David Villa as he has a wealth of experience and is the most proven player out of the three. Who would you want Arsenal to sign?

    Adrian Lopez is very inconsistent and doesn’t actually get a lot of assists even though he plays with Falcao, I don’t see how he gets compared to Villa but if Walcott goes then I guess we should get both Lopez and Soldaldo.

    There has been so many articles about what striker we should go for, which is strange, as the main area which needs strengthening is midfield. Giroud has been fed scraps all season and so was Walcott against Wigan. Even RVP didn’t have tons of chances last season because of Cesc and Nasri leaving, and our creativity has got worse since RVP and Song have left as well.

    We need to start dominating games again, and start creating chances for fun like we used to.I know Walcott and Giroud aren’t world class but they’ll start scoring more often with more creativity from out wide and in the middle.

    I think we need playmaker/winger, def mid, back up LB. Having natural winger will allow Podolski to play up front more often. This will give us enough striking options along with Walcott and Giroud.

    Arsenal needs a fighter in front of goal like Cavani/Falcao. Lopez is Ok for me given we have Carzola to supply balls. But then we need defensive midfielder like MVilla/Capoue and possibily a defender who can run not the Metersacker type! To my opinion, Conscielny is better than Metersacker although the combination with metersacker/conscielny works more than Vermaelen/conscielny or Vermaelen/Metersacker. In addition, playing Vermaelen on the left frank (I think) has reduced his efficiency as a center-back!

    Top Top players won’t join us as the transfer fee will be to high and why should they halve their income.

    Until we pay the market value and the going rate of pay for this type of player then only in fantacy football will they join us.

    Also AW supports our board over the Russian who probably won’t let him go his own way without direction from above, so off we go on another AW crusade to develop a team which will waste another 6/7 years because we will not be able to get the top top young players either.
    Not all of the five just signed are nearly good enough or will ever be good enough, if they become good enough then you all know what will happen and round we go again.
    The Russian would not let that happen so AW would leave as creating a team any other way than his would not be acceptable to him.

    IMHO I think Ba would be a good option. Here’s why.
    1. Wants to play for arsenal. Surely we need those kind of players.
    2. Proven EPL experience. We got Giroud & Podolski (Gervihno the year before) from other leagues. They are good, but just haven’t seem to have locked into the EPL yet. We need someone who can score goals right now. I believe Ba is that guy. Nothing fancy, but proven.
    3. He’s cheap £7.5mil. We know exactly what he costs. Not rocket science.

    Some say Ba is not Arsenal calibre. He’s one of the EPL’s highest scorers. What more evidence does anyone need? Surely he’s an easy, sensical option right now?

    All this talk about signing a new striker is not as important as securing a CDM, we are badly suffering in this area. If we sign a quality CDM in the mould of Song, or Yaya Toure our chances of wining will improve significantly.

    As far as a winger is concerned we already have a decent one in Gervinho….i admit he is a frustrating to watch but we already paid millions of pound for him so its worth the effort to support him and let the training staff coach the attributes he lacks into his game {final pass or cross} Wenger tend to play some players out of position and when they fail to live up to his expectations he phases them into oblivion i.e Arshavin. Eventually it makes for bad coaching and bad business.

    Just picture this squad with only 5 signings, the whole team’s dynamic will change and it wont dry up the transfer budget. I don’t feel we need another DM, Coquelin is a quality back up until Diaby is fit again, if his problem persists then maybe consider Capoue, M’Vila or Wanyama for the Summer window.

    - IN 55-60m (Mignolet, Mbiwa, Shaw, Zaha & Cavani):
    - OUT 35-40m (Fabianski, Mannone, Santos, Djourou, Squilacci, Arshavin, Gervinho, Chamakh, Park, Bendtner)
    - Net -20m, but that’s not even considering the severely reduced wage bill.

    First Team:
    Sczezesny
    Sagna-Mbiwa-Vermaelan-Gibbs
    Diaby
    Wilshere-Cazorla
    Walcott-Cavani-Podolski

    Second Team:
    Mignolet
    Jenkinson-Koscielney-Mertesacker-Shaw
    Coquelin
    Arteta-Rosicky
    Zaha-Giroud-Chamberlain

    Future first team:
    Martinez
    Bellerin-Angha-Miquel-Meade
    Frimpong
    Ramsey-Eisfield
    Gnarby-Campbell-Miyachi

    The future is bright, any person can see this, lets just hope Wenger is the one to realise this potential.

    There isnt anything about Lopez to suggest, hes a brilliant player in his own right, unless his opinion of himself is such as Bendtners, thinking himself and Nik to be the best two players in world football, in there own right of course.

    David Villa used to be a brilliant player in his own right, and in everyone elses opinion. There is a very big ??? hanging over the once superlative Spaniard. Also his very pacy play, harrying and hurrying without looking rash, have vanished from his game due to age, as it always has done. I believe if there are no injury worries then what he could still provide, would be, good link up play, occasionally giving some very good assists while also finishing some off.

    Soldado seems a fine player, i dont think hes going to be a dream team player of sorts, but a fairly solid goalscorer whos physically strong and well capable of holding on to the ball, passing it about, bringing others into play. At least youd have more of an idea about what youl get from Soldado.

    I believe it would be a good idea to root about in the Spanish league, im sure there are many very promising players who we dont get to see due to there non CL participation.

    Myself, i like the look of R Madrids Gonzolo Higauin, who looks a very fine player indeed. With Madrid most likely chasing Falcao Neymar, and a preferred starting berth for the reliable Benzema, now could/would be a great opportunist poach. He is a very solid goalscorer who can link play well enough, good with his feet and can see a pass, very strong physically and good in the air. Would love to see him wear the famous red and white.

    we don’t need another striker, remember podolski? Him and Giroud with poloski playing abit deeper would work with theo rotating in imo
    However we need wingers because Gerviho isnt cutting it frankly need a pacy and skillful winger like navas with santi on the other side a new CAM being Hotlby.
    and a better CDM, if we’re going to be serious Vidal or Alonso class players not cheap but we have strikers who know how to finish why waste money podolski in his actual position is one of the worlds best.
    and finally a new LB again someone like Baines would be prefect

    All in all
    we should get
    Holtby
    Navas
    Baines
    Alonso

    I am afraid, but it seems that Wenger will stick to his new found formation and line up…
    With the trio OX-Walcott-Podolski.!!

    That would be a big mistake because Walcott is not a striker and had his best performances playing as a winger.

    I am waiting and curious to see if he does evolve in his choices and changes his tactics.
    I doubt it, but let see.

    Against teams playing high ( Wigan ), Giroud is a better choice and he is a real striker.

    Anyway, we need more quality players and dissipate the deadwoods.

    We cannot get rid of Ramsey as he signed a new contract ( disgrace !! ), so we are stuck with his low level football. Thanks Wenger, nice move “idiot”…!!

    We could recoup at least £20m from selling the dead wood and our total cost of buying would be around the £45-55m which is bloody cheap if you ask me and we would have one hell of a strong squad!

    Carlos Vela is scoring goals in Spain. I feel we were too quick in getting rid of him. Wenger is not a good Manager. What are his plans for the countless Players we have on loan. Sanchez Watt, Denilson, Eastmond, Campbell, Park, Frimpong,Bendthner,etc. Which top team has this amount of Players on loan. Wenger senselessly aloud Arshavin to go out on loan in February and afterwards we played AC Milan @ Emirates and were short of attacking midfielders. It was poor management. Arshavin could have had a good impact off the bench, but he was in Zenith because he needed more games ro get into the european championship. Wenger has lost it. Rotate ur squad Arsene.Play Podolski thru the middle.Why is Eisfield yet to feature in a EPL match? We bought only him in January. Give him a chance. When will we see Sanchez Watt in the first team? We should be playing to win the EPL and Champions league. Top four is no trophy. We need 2 players in January. An attacking midfielder who can also play in the flank, Any one of Sneidjer, Ben Harfa, Taarabt. And Capoue. Wenger has been given too much power in the club and that is killing Arsenal. He was Ok to get a draw away to Aston Villa. Guardiola will see that result as a failure especially when we are 15 points off the league leaders and no trophy in 7 yrs. Wenger must buy in January. Anyways I’m not a coach, I’m an Engineer and I’m paid to deliver results.If Wenger truly Knows his Job, Arsenal should have won at least an FA cup in the last 7 yrs.

    To be honest, to be realistic, I bet 2000 pound that Wenger will again sign a 16 years old player, probably a defender or midfielder, from God knows where. We’ve been talking about Arsenal transfer target for like 10 years and no one has ever satisfied our expectations. Maybe Arteta is the closest, and Podolski also. But the thing is, Wenger always keeps his inconsistency in signing players. He signs a good player in one transfer session, and loses even his best player in the next window. It’s always like that. Even if you fly with Emirates today, you will not see one single thing related to Arsenal FC. Pathetic!

He’d be good for a fairly cut price. In all honesty you need a striker who can score 25 goals or so to be close to winning the league.

    To be honest arsenal need tons of work and Wenger doesn’t seem able to listen to us fans. Our problems lye deep within, firstly our defence don’t seem to be able to cope with change or pressure which is why we need to sign a defensive midfielder like m’villa plus were still missing our fluency in midfield which is why we need Kao moutinho or isco. Arsene must sign a world class striker and the only two that would fill the boots with class are cavani or damaeo both great and promising strikers with years left in them, if we get these we could go 4312 and have cavani and walcott upfront together with either podolski or cazorla as an attacking midfielder and our cm would be wilshere m’Vila and moutinho and could play sagna-mertesaker-vermaelan-Gibbs . Also if Wenger doesn’t want to spend he could swap skocieney for vermaelen and play vermaelen as a cdm with wilshere and isco and still win matches… I seriously doubt this will happen but as a gooonner we I’m optimistic

    Why Wenger doesn’t make a bid for M.Suarez again is beyond me. They guy is absolute dynamite. Fast, nimble, very clever striker and he is no slouch. Good in the year and has great vision. in actual fact he is a brilliant all round striker and won the Belgium golden boot last year.

    It would be nice to get a striker with BPL experience, but what options do we have? I like Ba, but he is another sloth. He doesn’t chase and we need someone like that up front, someone like Rooney, Tevez, Suarez.

    M.Suarez would be a great signing, along with Adam Lelana on the LW (WE NEED A DECENT OUT AND OUT LW) and some fists in midfield/defense – Mbiwa or Fellaini.

    M.Suarez, Lelana and Mbiwa would be my dream signings in Jan. And of course WE KEEP WALCOTT.

    I personally do not think we need to buy a striker. With any luck we will be able to hold onto Theo, then we will have 3 striking options Giroud and Podolski being the other 2. I think we should focus on buying a couple of exciting attacking midfielders like Isco and Ben Arfa. Isco a former team mate of Santi linked up really well with him last year at Malaga. Newcastle seem to be dropping like a stone at the minute so we should take advantage of that fact and put in an offer for Arfa who Wenger is a big admirer of. Those two plus a potential def mid player like Strootman and the good times would soon be here at the mighty Arsenal.

    STOP WITH THE ZAHA TALK! I’m sorry but he’s nothing special, at best a Championship Theo!! He is also way overpriced – but if they’re happy with a Gervinho/Zaha swap I’d be happy with that!
    I think we should be signing ISCO and Adrian/El Shaarawy – Imagine the Spanish flare running through our team with Arteta/Cazorla/Isco/Adrian – WOW!
